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?

  • The Face of your Business

    More than Website Design -

    YOUR WEBSITE IS THE FACE OF YOUR BUSINESS

    You wouldn’t go to a business meeting in bell bottom jeans and a tie dye shirt (unless you were very certain the theme of the meeting was “remember the 60′s“). Don’t “dress” your website in outdated  styles either. And it’s not just about looks. It’s about content, credibility and positive user experience. Remember that for many of your clients, your website will be the only connection they have to your business. If it fails to impress, it may well be the last time they consider doing business with you. Think of it this way: if your website is well constructed, looks professional and polished and is easy to use, it won’t matter if you are actually working out of a broom closet. Why? Because your website gives you the credibility of a well established, successful business. That’s what you really want isn’t it? But here’s the danger. It works the other way too. If you are a long established business with an impressive client list, a poorly designed and executed website will erode your credibility. See where I’m going with this?

    YOUR WEBSITE IS HUGE PART OF YOUR MARKETING EFFORT

    It’s true, and a bit surprising, that many business owners still don’t get the power of the Internet and the importance of a website. Why else would they “throw something up there quickly“? If you’re a start up or a new company still writing a business plan, make your website part of the plan. Budget for it. How much should you budget? Hard to say but you should be talking to a web professional early in the process to get a handle on the cost. If you don’t see clients at your office or facility then I would say this. Take the money you might spend on a fancy chair and expensive desk – which your clients will never see – and add it to your website budget. Not only will your clients see your website, they will judge you by it.

    THE TRAGEDY OF UNDERESTIMATING YOUR WEBSITE

    Here’s why I call it a tragedy.You’ve spent countless hours planning, thinking, forecasting, hoping. You’ve spent hard earned money on equipment, office space, employees. Then you launch a website that squanders the precious 4 seconds you have to make a first impression. That’s a tragedy.
