There is a big difference between the average Web site and a full blown Web based business applications. An average Web site is some basic information about a person or a business. A Web based business application is a piece of software that is designed for the purpose of conducting business on the Internet using a Web browser. We do both. Our primary focus is on business applications but we do offer services to small businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals. Contact us for more.

Constructing a successful web site, in many ways, is like building a house. You have to start with a plan. Flexibility, scalability and maintenance must be kept in mind as well, but failure to stick to plan will likely invoke a visit from a reality TV show.

Web Site Maintenance

Finally, as with any investment, you’ll need to take care of what you’ve built. Maintaining your home is an on-going process that ensures your long-term happiness and success.

The final (yet on-going) stage of web development is maintaining the site’s content and perceived image. Revolving content is perhaps the best way to achieve high levels of loyal users. Likewise, constructing new content areas, graphics, and interaction can ensure continuous interest.

Promotion Building an excellent site in not enough to ensure success, without traffic, even the best site in cyberspace is just space. To achieve results people must know the site exists. Promotion is a vital part of the success of any project such as this and there are many ways to get found on the Internet.

Like the house you’ll want to tell everyone where to find you, which means change of address forms and a great party. If no one knows of your existence your efforts will have been for naught which makes for a pretty boring party.

Search engines are the yellow pages of the Internet and are the first place people go to look for something on the Web and if you’re not there you won't be found. Search engine submissions can be complicated and time consuming. If you don't have the proper configurations it can be difficult to properly place your site. We provide this service for you as part of a design package or regular submissions as part of a maintenance package.
