Website Design & Development
Having a website is crucial for a modern business to survive and grow. But not just any website will do. A well-designed website increases positive perception of your brand, improves visitors’ ability to connect with the information they need, and provides a satisfying experience on any device.
We don’t just design great websites; we design great packages too. There is so much involved in creating and maintaining a website, and you won’t need to worry about any of it. And you shouldn’t — you have your business, and we have ours. Our program works, because that’s what it’s designed to do.
Here’s what’s included:
What does your website need to accomplish? How will you measure ROI? These are the questions we’ll ask you when we talk. We won’t ask what your favorite color is because your brand and your goals will define the palette. What we need to know is what’s important to your business and how you define success — because that’s what guides the entire process.
The Best Tech
Every business is unique, and so every site is unique. We don’t pigeonhole our clients into our choice of platform; we evaluate their needs and then select the right technology. Our offices are proficient with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and phpBB, as well as related plugins, themes, pagebuilders, and methods. Our philosophy is always to choose the right tool for the job.
Pages need to be added, removed, or updated from time to time. Events, sales, and promotions come and go. Complex layouts can require expert attention. And so on. But none of this is a problem because our offices allocate two hours every month to help our clients with such matters, all at no extra charge. (Updates after that are charged at 50% of our published hourly rate.)
Having our own server means all TCO client sites always have the resources they need to perform at their best. And because only TCO-designed sites are hosted, you can be assured that all your “neighbor” sites are professionally maintained and won’t be exposing your business to possible service interruptions or security vulnerabilities.
A broken website can take time to repair (or rebuild) and can cost hundreds — sometimes thousands — of dollars in hourly fees. That’s why every TCO client gets on our insurance plan. It works like this: if your site breaks, we fix it as well as we can, as quickly as we can. No coverage disputes, no deductibles, no copays. Period.
Every TCO website is meticulously maintained in order to avoid interruptions that can cost your business money, damage your brand, and more. We run regular backups, check security logs, audit performance, repair, tune-up, and upgrade as needed. And we do it all manually because there’s just no substitute for real human attention.
