Oakland Website Design to Help Grow Your Business or Practice
Oakland Website Design dictates a professional image to effectively compete with your competition. With a strong and well organized professional design, logical organization and user-friendly navigation, a well-designed website will show your business in its best light and site visitors are far more likely to explore your site, learn about your business, and then contact you to become customers.
Similarly, without highly effective Search Engine Optimization, websites easily get lost in the blizzard of competing sites, never to be seen. It’s very important today to insure that your Oakland website design is professional with strong relevant content and strong Search Engine Optimization to bring large numbers of new prospects to your business. Our SEO services can make a huge impact on your business, bringing new customers or patients on a regular and ongoing basis. We have seen great success with our Oakland web design customers since 1996. (see our sample website designs)
WordPress / CMS Websites
There are many reasons why WordPress websites are so incredibly popular for Oakland website design. WordPress sites offer tremendous design options and they’re simple for site owners to update and use. Because they’re so popular, there are a large number of companies who offer WordPress themes and add-on application modules. As a result, a WordPress site offers extremely flexibility of design and functionality. And you can update nearly everything yourself.
We pride ourselves in developing great looking sites with the ideal features for each customer, generally eliminating the need for custom programming in all but the most unique situation. And WordPress is highly SEO and mobile friendly. In short, it’s easily the best website platform for small to medium businesses, bar none!
More than half of all website visitors are now using tablets and smartphones to visit websites. That’s why we develop Responsive Design sites that automatically adapt to the screen size of mobile devices. Whatever device your visitors are using, including desktop computers, laptops, tablet computers, and smart phones, your site will be seen at the appropriate size and with all capabilities available. A responsive design website will shift and re-size images and text as needed, eliminating the need for a separate (and often limited) mobile version of your site.
Further, responsive design is Google’s preferred method of providing a “mobile friendly” website. Google gives preference to mobile friendly websites in their search results, making responsive design the clear winner for today’s business websites.
We’ve developed e-commerce websites for over 15 years, so we’re familiar with and can recommend a variety of solid e-commerce/shopping cart software, or custom solutions depending on your specific needs. Whether you need to sell a few products on your website or a full-blown online store, we can build the perfect site for you.
While we are experienced with many different e-commerce options, we most often recommend WooCommerce, which is by far the most popular shopping cart system for small to medium businesses. It has a very wide range of features and capabilities and integrates as part of a WordPress site, so all the many advantages of WordPress are also true of WooCommerce sites.
We also build Magento e-commerce sites for certain larger clients. Magento is the clear leader for very large and high volume e-commerce websites, while WooCommerce provides affordable and competitive functionality for more modest budget e-commerce sites.
Custom Web Programming
When necessary, we recommend custom programming for websites of all kinds. While custom programming is generally more costly than pre-designed applications, unique needs at times can only be satisfied with a custom-written application.
Every business should have its own domain name, such as www.yourbusiness.com. If you’ve registered your domain name, we can use it for your website. We often recommend domain names that work especially well for SEO purposes, and we can also “forward” another “branded” domain name to that very same site, so your customers see no difference.
We ALWAYS register a new domain name in your name, not ours. This is important because control of your domain name should be in your hands, not someone else’s. We’ve seen many frustrating and even disasterous situations where customers did not control their own domain name. If it’s registered in your name to begin with, you can avoid such problems.
Hosting & Email
We offer Business Quality web hosting as well as Premium Business hosting services. Both are good options, though our Premium Hosting is faster, even more secure, and includes a full 30 days of backups – a very nice insurance policy should that rare major problem occur. Your website will be set up on your hosting provider of choice.
Both of our hosting options include email addresses based on your domain name, such as “firstname.lastname@example.org”. We can also set up your site to use a large third party email provider such as Microsoft 365 if you prefer. Your email addresses can be set up as full-fledged email boxes or as simple email “forwards”, which many customers prefer.
