We help businesses set up websites using content management system software method.  The benefits allows them to update the website on their own in the future, reducing the need for monthly billing (unless they choose us to maintain the website on a monthly basis).  Our move to using content management based software streamlines the ease of updating websites and makes managing the website easier, and in the long run, cutting operational costs to update, maintain and to add pages. 

All websites we help set up for our customers are designed to be responsive web design – meaning that the website can be displayed across all devices, from computer desktop monitors, to tablets, to mobile phone devices.

Current research statistics shows that about 40% of small Canadian businesses don’t have a website or e-commerce website.  In addition, more Canadians will have more trust and confidence with companies having a website identity.  Today, more and more people rely on the internet to do online shopping and research rather than walking into a store and ask questions.  Current research says that 76% of Canadians will do their own research before they buy anything.  A website therefore is an important business identity.  We will assist businesses to take product photography and integrating this into the e-commerce website.

Along with conventional web design and e-commerce websites, we can help educational institutions and private schools set up and develop online learning tools by integrating video and photos we take into the online learning website platform.  Developing online school websites would no longer be a hassle since we help do photos, 360 Virtual Tours and videos for them.

About Web Design

About Our Web Design Setup

About Website Setup:
computer monitorOur goal in web design is to convey points and information to the public in a straightforward manner. The design includes communicating with the client on what they want on the website, and how the information is organized.

Clients can choose what theme or look they want, and we can modify and touch up that theme look to adjust to their needs.  By having a fixed content structure independent of the overall website look, clients can at anytime change the overall look of the website without impacting the contents, photos and words within the website.

Clients can edit or add content of the website themselves at anytime for flexibility.  We create and host websites for Realtors to showcase their Real Estate Photography, Video Tours, Feature Sheets and Virtual Tours. Combining Graphic Design knowledge with CSS and HTML coding allows us to develop basic websites suitable for marketing small businesses to the public. We help our clients build shopping cart e-commerce websites.

Benefits of our services:
As part of our comprehensive shopping cart package, we include all the design work, all the photography and video work, and all the data entry work in the e-commerce shopping cart website.  As we do product photography and videos, our clients doesn’t need to look for someone else to take photographs of products to sell to put into the e-commerce website. Our web design is suitable for small businesses wanting to market their service or products by giving the public information and photos.

We also provide relevant photo editing and graphic design work relating to any web design projects.

We also feature lifetime software support for our customers – meaning if there is any software updates, we apply it for them at no extra charge.

Our customers only pay for our intitial flat rate design service fees – they don’t have to pay large monthly fees like Shopify, Volusion, and E-Bay does.  The only monthly fee our customers have to pay is a small fee for the domain and hosting web server service.  However, we offer regular monthly fees to customers wishing to help maintain and update their website on their behalf.

Custom Fields, Custom Themes and Custom Templates Design:
Sometimes customers want the ease to enter in data quickly and efficiently on the content management system website so they can make life easier.  As an option to our customers or on their request, we can hand code PHP, CSS and HTML into custom templates so that they don’t have to worry about manually putting in all the shortcode and html codes to display webpages.  They simply enter in predefined fields into the text area box in the custom fields, and our custom templates and programming together will take care of all output webpage look for them.

An example of this feature is that customers want to enter in specific data for a 4-tabbed page for a page.  Normally one would have to manually put in shortcodes in the main editing window and for beginner’s can quickly grow into confusion and inefficiency.  Instead, we create custom fields so that there would be specific data entered for each of the tabs.  Custom fields can also be created if customers want to easily enter in URL instead of handcoding the HTML codes, increasing work efficiency.

Realtor Website

Realtors Website

It is a good idea for realtor’s to have their own website to represent their skills, and to show to the public their experience, customer service skills and expertise in helping customers buy and sell properties.  Having their own website allows them to display their own biography and to explain about themselves.  

The benefits of having a custom built realtor website is:

  • Allowing flexibility in adding any content they wish, compared to using other hosted services that they have to follow their way
  • Integrating live MLS data listings into their own custom designed themed website
  • Adding separate archived pages and photos of what properties they sold

For MLS data live listings, this service is provided by another provider, and as such, the realtor will be responsible for the monthly charges incurred.

 

Online Ordering

Online Ordering

We help restaurants and businesses set up a website for patrons to look at the menu, if they wanted to take out and dine at their offices or at their homes.  The basic website for restaurants can have a simple PDF or text based online menu for patrons to view and some general photos and information about the restaurant, or a more robust website version with online take out ordering capabilities similar to a e-commerce shopping cart store.

 

We can also assist in taking photos of food dishes and placing them on the website or integrating them into graphic design of restaurant menus.

After customers paid with their credit card, an email is sent to the restaurant immediately, or the email can be sent as a fax to the restaurant, or the email can be sent directly to a printer, and the restaurant can begin to prepare the food for takeout.

 

Pay one flat fee for our design work, and no need to pay monthly fee.  The exception to this is if the restaurant needed our help to maintain the website for them monthly and also for web hosting service monthly fee.
