Website Design & Development

Let’s co-create your web and digital strategy.

Effective web design is more than just pretty images on a screen. It should be in alignment with your unique business needs and goals. We’ll partner with you to align your vision and goals, giving you the website of your dreams!

Manifest your vision with strategy-based website design

You know the pain of an outdated, underperforming website. You may even be dealing with one right now. You’ve hired different freelancers and updated things on your website, so why isn’t it working?

We’ve helped many small businesses just like you. Most websites are not strategically structured. You need a design partner who understand the importance of strategy-based websites and designs a website that resonates with your customers.

What can better web design do for you?

Your website is an integral part of your overall marketing strategy. It’s also the most cost-effective, important part of the customer experience. It should be an extension of your brand, resonate with your audience, and be intuitive to use.

If you have an outdated, hard to use website, chances are your customers will go to your competitors instead.

Distill

Next, we learn more about your competitors, similar industries, and how your current site is performing. We use that information to build a strategy for your website. This includes things like pages, site architecture, and look and feel. This is the foundation for the other stages.

Design

We’ll design the layout and look and feel of your website. Great web design makes a great first impression. Your website should be easy to use and easy to look at. Clean, uncluttered designs perform best. Most importantly, your website’s design should be on-brand and resonate with your customers.

A lot goes into developing a great website. We’ll make sure your site is fast, effective, has streamlined navigation, and clear calls to action. We create more than just beautiful websites. They’re strategically structured for high-performance with clean code and SEO best practices in mind.

URL Redirects

URL redirects are important if you have an existing website and are looking to re-launch a new site. Doing this helps keep your existing SEO rankings in-tact and ensures that customers who bookmarked your pages can still access your content

SEO Ready

Every website we build has SEO built right into the foundation. A beautiful website means nothing, if it doesn’t have proper SEO. We take care of all the technical SEO tasks so your new website will have a solid foundation for ranking in search engines.

 

Photo Sourcing

All our website design plans include photo sourcing from royalty-free websites.  We use Unsplash, Pexels, or other sites that provide images for free. If you find something you like on Adobe Stock or iStockPhoto, we can use those for an additional cost.

Maintenance Plans

After we launch your site, we offer hosting and maintenance plans to help make sure your website and any plugins always stay running optimally, are secure, and free of bugs and viruses. Let us take care of the technical stuff for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of our most frequently answered Web Design questions and answers.

How much does it cost to get a new website designed?

There’s not one single answer to this question but we charge a fraction what other Portland web design agencies charge. A website design is quoted based on the needs of each individual project. Every website is unique and requires different components. We design and develop custom websites specifically for your business. We’ll ask a lot of questions, assess your needs, and give you a price quote based on that assessment. Our smallest package starts at $3500.

Sound good to you? Get started.

How long does it take?

We work fast. We’re all about working smarter, not harder. We finish most of our websites in 4-8 weeks. This depends on how many pages your site has, features, and complexity. How quickly you provide input during the initial stages and how soon content is provided will also play a role in the timeline.

Do I have to be in the Portland area to work with you?

Nope! Although most of our partners are local, we communicate by email, scheduled calls and Zoom meetings.

Will I be able to update the site myself when you're finished?

Absolutely! We love providing websites that empower our partners to take control of their website and manage the content on their own. You will have full access to the backend of your new WordPress website once it’s launched to make text updates, and photograph changes. 

However, we do recommend a professional to complete more complex changes and maintenance such as plugin updates, design or structure changes, and complex functionality requirements.

Will you maintain our website for us?

Yes, we can maintain your new site for you, or you can do minor changes yourself. We offer maintenance plans for all budgets, but the choice is 100% up to you and is not mandatory.

If you decide not to have a maintenance plan, you can contact us with requests and we will provide a quote at our current support rate.

Do you provide website hosting?

We provide hosting if you are on a maintenance plan. You can also use your own hosting and still have one of our maintenance plans.

If you want control over your hosting, we recommend SiteGround for their speed, features, and optimization.

Who writes the text/content for the website?

We require that your provide all text and content you want on your website. You are the expert at your business, so it’s best if it comes from you.

How quickly can you start?

We can usually start work as soon as you sign your contract and pay the initial deposit.

You don't have examples of my industry. How do I know you're a good fit?

That’s the first thing we’ll figure out. As much as you’re vetting us, we also vet our potential clients to ensure it will be a beneficial partnership.

The thing about working with us is that we spend time with you do discover your needs and business goals. We then plan a strategy to develop your new site. If you need a cost-effective website based on strategy that is easy to use, aesthetically pleasing, and mobile friendly, you’ll love us.
