We build, update, repair, and maintain websites of many different styles and purposes. Different websites have different needs. Anyone setting out to build or improve a website should know what they are going to need, and what total costs to expect. These include domains, web hosting, SSl Certificates, website content management, software and security updates, and backups.
We have put together some standard website design packages for common types of websites. Details on these packages are coming soon. If you have any questions at all, please contact us, and we would be glad to answer all your questions!
Below are some categories of websites, along with examples of our work, to give you an idea of what we can do for you!
Types of Websites
Portfolio of Customers and Projects
A brochure site is a simple website that is rarely updated. It can still be an elegant presentation of information about your business or organization. This is often a great approach for a small established business that has figured out what it does and does not do, and can simply present all the necessary information to the potential customer, much like in a well designed brochure.
The content is created with rare updates in mind, avoiding information that might change regularly, such as menu specials for a restaurant, inventory levels, or upcoming events. Common content includes (but certainly isn’t limited to) description of services, photos, contact information and directions, an “about us” page, and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
Brochure sites can certainly be updated, and we’re glad to handle the task, whether we designed the website or not. We would also be glad to build you a brand new website.
Examples of our work with Brochure websites XII Stones Cafe, Dr. Lee Orthopedic, Castaways Marina
Frequently Updated Sites
An E-Commerce site is one that features a functioning store, allowing customers to buy and pay for goods, products, or services through the website. This may include selling items that are shipped to the customer, or downloadable products such as audio or video files, or documents. This can also include websites that take donations or payments without having merchandise.
There are a number of key elements that go into a successful E-Commerce website, including presentation, organization, security, and payment verification and notification.
An E-Commerce site requires more ongoing attention than most other types of sites, but total costs are generally much lower than maintaining a brick-and-mortar storefront, and thus can be a great option for small business, or a business that wishes to target a customer base that is too widespread to target with a brick-and-mortar store alone.
We have experience in E-Commerce, and would love to talk with you about how we can meet your needs. Here are some examples of our work with E-Commerce websites PurestOil.com, Warrior Moms (WarriorMoms.net)
This could include business and organizational websites that receive frequent updates to the site information, sites with news or newsletters posted to the site, blogs and writing sites, or just about any site that receives frequent updates from the owners of the site.
These sites can be set up with multiple users collaborating on the site’s content, and different users can be given different permission levels for managing the site’s content, structure, and management. Some users may only be able to submit work for review before publication, others may be able to directly publish their updates, and still others can delve deep into the site’s workings and change any aspect of the website. Here are some examples of our work with Frequently Updated sites Blackfoot Performing Arts Center
Multi-Site websites are a collection of sites that all share the same WordPress installation. They become a small network. School district websites are an example of mutli-sites. Themes and plugins can be shared across all sites and each site can be customized with it’s own content. Mutli-sites are a great solution if you need to manage multiple websites with a single user account and profile.
