When a business owner hears this question, it can send icicles through their bellies. I've seen firsthand what a slow website can do to a business; people leave the site, sales decrease, competition increases, all from something that seems innocuous. We've taken over web hosting for many companies with this issue, and site speed always increases dramatically. Why? Hacker Blocker Hosting.

The 3 most common mistakes new business owners make, that contribute to website failure are:
- Lack of Competitive Analysis
- Not understanding of how SEO / Google works
- Going cheap on design and hosting
Generating a quote for web design is based on many factors. The design, style and level of expertise dictates the "core" price, while other factors include the number of pages, add-on programs such as Event Booking or E-Commerce, and database manipulation like importing contacts or products. Oh, and don't forget SEO and content writing, which is the most important aspect of any website. More about that later.
There's a lot of confusion out there about SEO (Search Engine Optimization) today. Not just what it means, but the difference between Local and National search engine placement and marketing. While they overlap in a lot of areas, it's a lot easier to get to the top of Google locally than nationally. Here's why.
Many organizations struggle with internal network sites, commonly called Intranets, more than their public website. In many cases, Intranets are overlooked, even if they barely get the job done. Many Intranets we've seen are woefully out of date, with little to no security, and with no one able to edit or update the site.
Some of the industries and Organizations that use Intranets:
- Newspapers and Agencies
- Factories & Manufacturing
- Medical Centers
- Government Offices
- US Military
Some of the programs we can include in our Intranets:
- Sales & Customer Management (CRM)
- Document Management
- Contact Directory
- Custom Access Levels
- Event Management
- News and Information w/ Version Rollback
- Advanced Editors & Navigation
- Language Translators
- User Alerts & Emails
- Automated Backup and Restore
Every Intranet is different, but have similar goals - to inform, collaborate and communicate among staff and managers. We've built successful Intranets for hospitals, medical centers, non-profit organizations and businesses, all with different needs. We specialize in Customization to suit your needs.
Streamline operations and procedures. How much time do your staff waste looking for documents or policies they need? How do you ensure they're not using out-of-date versions?
