Website Design & Development
Having a good website is no longer an option; it is a requirement for businesses in every industry. The Internet is your number one opportunity for attracting new customers and connecting with you current client base. We’re here to make that easy for you.

We build all of our sites responsively, ensuring that regardless of the device being used to access your website, your potential customer will have the best experience possible.

There are virtually unlimited ways to code a website, but some are clearly better than others. We adhere to Google’s recommendations and expectations, coding our websites in HTML5 and CSS3 with lightweight code structure. Our custom site framework includes elements from Twitter bootstrap and Roots, two of the most widely-supported website structures available today. Vogue, Newsweek, and many of the other top sites on the web are built with this same technology.
Schema is an important SEO tactic; it is a method of highlighting and categorizing content for search engine robots. It tells them the difference between an address and a name, a product and a service, etc. Every site we build has schema installed; we speak the language Google speaks! Properly codifying data in this way helps search engines read, understand, and use your website, making them more likely to show you in the top of their results.
Why You Need an Optimized Website:
Did you know that less than 3% of websites are currently tagged with rich markup code, but those sites comprise 36.6% of Google’s search results?
