Website Design

Making Satisfied Customers

At TOD we are Creating Great Websites & Making Satisfied Customers. We are not designing websites just based on pretty pictures and bright colors. There is a method to creating websites that involves a knowledge brought about by years of development experience. Your site could provide customer support, sell a product or service, capture visitor information, manage memberships. Documents, files, and so much more. We look forward to putting our knowledge and experience to work for you

Your website is the face of your business!

You’ve spent hard earned money on equipment, office space, employees. Don't launch a website design that squanders the precious seconds you have to make a first impression.

Website Design Goals

  • Are visitors comforted by intuitive navigation?
  • Is the website design interactive and interesting enough to hold a visitors attention?
  • Is the content rich enough to add value to your brand?
  • Is the layout responsive enough to be viewed on desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones?
  • Is your site structured in a framework that performs well when indexed by search engines and social media so you get found?

Getting Started!

When defining your project, it is best not to become tied up in technology. This means that you need only know what goals your website needs to achieve, and communicate this to a development team. Technology statements such as "I need an e-commerce store, so I need to hire someone who knows Java Script.". are actually sometimes used by prospective clients and are really not necessarily accurate. Determining what technologies should be used is best left to a professional developer. At TOD we have the experience and knowledge to employ the best technologies to achieve your websites goals., We look forward to hearing about what goals your site needs to meet. Prepare yourself by thinking in terms of what you want your site to do by creating user stories. More about user stories | More about Website Goals

Hosting & Domain Names too!

Hosting - More than just Web design - There are ads on TV that tell you all sorts of things. But they don't mention basic things your web developer will need to consider regarding hosting your website. What operating system will the server use? How reliable are the servers? And the mail servers? Is their package a good value? A good web developer in addition to being an expert in website design, has real experience running on different hosts and server environments and KNOWS where to go of the best hosting based on the needs of the website they're building for you. I have even seen clients purchase hosting contracts that are unable to run applications used in their website.  The Developer can be left in a situation where additional time and money is billed trying a workaround or making changes to the hosting environment. - See our Hosting Packages

E-commerce

E-commerce used to be complex and costly. Websites designed with Web stores were either custom built or were run by cart software with hard to understand controls. Today with CMS platforms like Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, and more, the process is much more streamlined and many clients can run their own stores with a minimal learning curve. Fact is, many people these days want to sell online and TOD has platforms and even strategies that can make all the difference in your online success. We have detailed answers to all of your questions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions: How will you get paid? How will you deliver? How does sales tax work? How to track inventory? How to make your site secure?

  • Clear your Cache

    Sometimes I have clients ask, "Why cant I see the latest version of my webpages?" I usually suggest they clear their browser cache and refresh. Sometimes there is a silent pause followed by a "what?" So, I decided to put up a bit more details on the subject.

    If you don't see changes made to your website, your web browser is most likely showing you web pages as it "remembers" them, not as they actually are. Clearing your Web browser cache forces the browser to load the latest versions of Web pages and programs you visit.
