Layout

Layout

The layout is the foundation of your website. It determines where your content will be displayed within your website. A well thought out layout goes a long way for ensuring a good user experience. We’ll custom design your layout based on the content you want to present, the order you want to present and the message you are trying to convey to your users.

Layout

Styling

If the layout of your website is where content is displayed, the styling would be the how. When it comes to the styling of your website we encourage a simple, modern, less-is-more approach. This provides your website with a clean look which conveys a clear message and provides a good user experience. Although we encourage a less-is-more approach, we’d be happy to style your website in any manner that you choose.

We utilize several techniques to ensure your page is benefiting from the best free organic search results possible. For starters, we use WordPress, which is designed with SEO in mind, we then use a popular and effective WordPress plugin to supplement the built-in WordPress SEO. We’ll also setup Google Search Console, a free service that helps us monitor and maintain your site’s presence in Google Search results. Finally we use Google Analytics a web analytics service that tracks and reports website traffic. In addition to these techniques, we’ll work with you to ensure your content is suitable for SEO.
