In today’s marketplace, every business needs some sort of web presence in order to compete and be successful. Even if you don’t sell products online, 60% of shoppers will go online first to search for information on products or services to purchase those items offline. This is why there are a host of options available to businesses for website design services, from cheap DIY site builders like Wix and Square Space, to high-end firms that charge upwards
While it is tempting to go with a dirt cheap option, there are some major disadvantages to doing so. Many site builders insert clunky code into your website which increases loading times and can hurt search engine rankings. There are also limits to the type of customization that is allowed. And most of these companies offer email or ticket based support only with no personalized phone support available.

Website Design Services That Fit Your Budget
Website design is our core service and something that we take pride in doing. Our custom responsive website design services will take your business to the next level providing a beautiful presence for your company across all devices as well as driving sales of your products and services. Whether you have an existing website or you are looking for your first, we can help give your business the professional look you need to succeed.
We start by having an in-depth discussion about your business and get a sense for how the website will tie into your existing business model. Then we’ll talk about design concepts, color schemes, and even look at websites you like as well as your competitors. You’ll receive a mockup usually within a week and, upon approval of the design, we’ll develop the remaining pages until you have a fully completed website ready to go. If you have all of the content ready to go, the entire process can take as little as 2-3 weeks or we can work on expedited timelines as needed.
Pitfalls of Site Builders and Template Developers
Small businesses have a ton of options being presented to them for building their website quickly and cheaply. There are companies like Square Space, Weebly, Wix, and GoDaddy that offer inexpensive or free site building tools that allow anyone to put up a website in a matter of minutes. There are also a lot of “basement” website developers with little in the way of coding skills, but they know their way around WordPress and installing a template.
While you can get a website up using any of these options, the odds of your website being seen are very low. Search engines, specifically Google, have become sophisticated over the years and regularly change their ranking factors to keep up with the advances in technology each year. Free site builders are slow to react to these changes and many usually inject proprietary code into your website that can hurt your rankings. And template-driven website developers typically don’t have the coding experience needed to ensure your website works across all browsers and devices.
