Website Design - Overview
Thirty-five percent of the people online this year will be first-time users of the Internet. It is the fastest growing medium in the marketing industry. Sites that are created must be easy to navigate, simple in content but effective in impact to market to this audience. If your site is too confusing, people will move on to the next web site. The Artful Spider specializes in creating imaginative sites that grab the visitors interest, and makes it fun and interesting for them to explore, while at the same time, presenting a simple user interface that clearly indicates the layout of the site, with links that are easily found and accessed.
We're serious about the Internet and its opportunities for your business. We fully realize that almost anyone can create a web page, but it takes serious equipment and experience to create a web site that will generate income for your business. We've got what it takes.
Prior to the initial (free) consultation, we suggest you review web sites that may be similar to your thoughts for your company's site. Write down the addresses for sites with layouts, graphics, forms, and colors that you might want to use for your site, so we can review them, and offer feedback regarding how these ideas might be incorporated into your design.
Keep in mind that all sites designed by The Artful Spider are unique, but if you can show me some ideas of what you're looking for, it will help in outlining a plan that will work for you, for a custom, one-of-a-kind website that'll knock their socks off!.
The Design Process
The Artful Spider's design process then begins with an initial (free) consultation to review your web goals and jointly identify a web strategy to meet and exceed those goals. At this time you should provide us with copy information, logos, graphics, photo's, pictures, brochures, etc., and specific web site information. Any ideas for custom graphics will be discussed as well. Custom graphic design and animation are our specialty, so if all you have is some doodles on a paper napkin, by all means, bring it to the table.
Within three business days after the consultation The Artful Spider will submit a proposal for your review and acceptance. This proposal will include specific requirements as discussed in the initial consultation including but not limited to number of pages, site navigation, page layouts, graphics and picture placement, links, forms, level of interactivity, animations, and custom graphics (if required). An estimate of cost will also be provided, to cover the initial design of your site.
If you need someone to help you understand this new media, we take pride in educating our clients and making their business the top priority. We keep no secrets, nor do we keep our clients in the dark, so they are dependant on us for every little thing. Our goal is to help you to present a site that uniquely represents your business to the world. Your web site should be a reflection of your company, designed with your taste and implemented with functions suited to your needs and all within your budget. The Artful Spider will work to create the best Internet business solutions for your company, whether you are new to the web, or you have a current site that needs redesigning or maintenance.
Because we know your web site is representative of your image, we work closely with every client to design sites accurately representing the quality and service your company represents. Once online, we consult with you to devise an online marketing strategy that will bring results!
When someone queries a search engine for a keyword related to your site's products or services, does your page appear in the top 10 matches or does your competition? If you're listed, but not within the first two or three pages of results, you lose, no matter how many engines you submitted your site to.
Since the majority of Web site travels begin with one of the major search engines, visibility on these sites has become crucial for most businesses. But what can someone do to increase his or her rank for keywords and phrases relevant to the Web site's content? The theme you'll hear from most Web marketers these days is this: "Submitting is not enough."
We will systematically improve Web site's relevance for keyword and phrase queries in the major search engines: Yahoo, Alta Vista, Excite, AOL, Web crawler, Hotbot, Lycos, Infoseek, Northern Light and Snap, among hundreds of others!
