Custom Websites and Digital Marketing

Compelling copy. Engaging visuals. Solid positioning. And spot-on messaging telling prospective clients how you’ll solve their problems.

What A Great Website! builds marketing-driven custom websites that get you noticed. Then we drive traffic with brand-building digital marketing to ramp up your small business or nonprofit. 

Is your website engaging?

Engaging your audience is key to reaching your goals. You’re taking viewers on a journey. We make sure that journey is informative, intuitive, and enjoyable.

We build websites that get you noticed.

Our team approaches web development as marketers -– something most web firms can’t say. We don’t just build pretty websites. We give you a robust, engaging, brand-forward, user-friendly, digital marketing tool designed to build your business.

Clear branding.

What makes your business special? Why should a prospective client call you? We make sure your brand promise is clear. Your What A Great Website! site will be carefully tailored to reflect your brand and make you stand out in a noisy and crowded digital world.

How websites should work.

The key to website success is understanding how people use the internet. They want to quickly and easily see what your business offers. They want to know if you can solve their problem or meet their needs. If your website is slow to load and confusing to navigate, they will leave.

Why us

Why us?

  • Our team members have solid marketing backgrounds. It’s what sets us apart from other web design and development firms. It also enables us to focus on and interpret your vision.
  • Our websites are designed and written to be quickly found by Google, Bing and other search engines.
  • We’re easy to work with but we won’t give you something that won’t work….even if that’s what you asked for. You’re hiring us for our expertise, so we won’t agree with anything we think will impede your site’s success.
  • We work as a team….with you. When we work together, you’re in the loop from beginning to end. No surprises. You see the site develop as we build it.
  •  We don’t disappear once your site is completed. We’re around to answer questions. Since we’ve gotten more than a few “help” calls from people whose web people are unreachable after launch, we know how important this is.

How we work

The Discovery Phase starts with our first meeting where we sit down with you to learn about your business or organization. We ask lots of questions:

  • What do you want your site to accomplish?
  • What other sites do you especially like….and why?
  • Who is your competition?
  • What’s unique about your firm and your products or services?
  • What’s wrong with your current site (if you have one)?

We discuss style, color, voice, and any other marketing material you’re using to build your brand. Then we go back, digest everything we’ve learned and do some due diligence of our own.

Based on your input and our research, we craft a proposal that details how we’ll move forward, scope of work, a timeline and the cost to design and develop your new website.

Our team is very efficient. We turn things around and respond quickly. That enables us to build your website within the timeframe we’ve given you.

Once your website is completed on our development site and is approved, we port it over to your web host and the site goes live. Hooray! At that time, we set up your training session for whoever will be maintaining the site. If you prefer, we can do this for you on a monthly basis at a very reasonable fee.

Work with us.
