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?

  • Why Local - and why not!

    local web designerMore than Website Design - Why local? Does the web designer you hire have to be local talent? Absolutely not! The most important things in hiring a web designer is to find someone that’s good at their job, clicks with your personality and is good for your web site. Website designers deal with many potential clients throughout their work week. A responsible, experienced designer cares more about the client’s web site and their business than they do about getting the job. It’s important that the working relationship be a good fit for both parties. Our wish is that the most qualified designer having the best match with the client gets the job, period. Word of mouth advertising is our best asset or can be our worst enemy. If the working relationship is not a good fit.

    You’ll most likely find any number of web designers within the geographical boundaries you set. Ahhh, but are all these local designers good at what they do simply because they’re local? Every web designer is local to someone and every location has local web designers. This is why you must ask yourself, why is hiring a local designer on your priority list? Be honest with yourself! After all, this is for you and your business and it’s of the utmost importance! Who looks out for your business better than you do? Don’t get me wrong … it’s a wonderful thing to support your local area retailers and service providers! People with good business sense realize that like it or not, sometimes you have to have a more open mind. Also, can your local provide full service options such as competent Web Hosting and SEO services too? What about mobile solutions?

    Most often I find at the end of the day, that people looking for a "Local Web designer" are really looking for a Web designer who will be responsive to their needs, provide superior service well after the sale, and be there for customer's support, ongoing needs and even training. A Good Web designer, or any decent business, does this for its clients no matter where they are. Sadly I've seen local clients "blown Off" by their local web designers too. This should not happen anywhere!

    You want to sell your products or services to anyone, anywhere, right? Well, the "World Wide Web" is in fact "World Wide", and your Website will be too. If there was ever a non-local endevour, a website is it. At the end of the day you have decided to hire a professional for a reason. That reason is centered in the that you want the best for your business. Both small and large companies are realizing more every day that they can hire very talented people who can effectively work remotely and achieve excellent results!
