Web design is the heart of what we do. Informative and smart content. Clean and aesthetically appealing design. Clear and consistent navigation. Pages that load fast. Cutting edge technology.
We can not only design your website, but we can also help you write the content. If you choose to write the content yourself, we will gladly read through your copy and suggest editing, grammatical, and content changes.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Search engine optimization, sometimes referred to as SEO, is the process of increasing the number of visitors to a web page by ranking higher in the search results of search engines such as Google, Yahoo or Bing. We work with you to design your web pages so that your web pages are highly visible to search engines and optimized for the key words and phrases that you feel are important for your business.
Content Management Systems (CMS)
A Content Management System provides a way for users to update sections of their own website. For example, you may want to regularly update a News or Schedule section. We can design a system that allows you to update your website information without any technical knowledge, while also keeping the look and formatting of the web page consistent.
Mobile Device Friendly Websites
With the growing popularity of smart phones and tablets, websites need to be designed with these devices in mind. Utilizing “Responsive Web Design” techniques, all of our new websites are optimized for viewing on a wide range of devices, including tablets and smart phones.
- Viewing any of these web pages on a desktop computer will typically show the widest display.
- Viewing any of these web pages on a tablet, such as an iPad, will look similar to a desktop, however since the pages are narrower, the columns of text and sometimes the images will also be narrower.
- Viewing any of these web pages on a smart phone, will result in a very different layout.
- Text will typically be displayed with a more vertical orientation, so horizontal scrolling is eliminated.
- The normal navigation bar is replaced by a single Menu link that takes up considerably less space.
- The font size is automatically set to a size that is comfortable for reading—without have to “zoom” the screen.
At Brew City Designs, we can provide the necessary graphic images for your website. If you also need a full graphic design package for your business, we work with several graphic design companies that we can recommend and work with. Of course, if you already have a logo and the necessary images, we will incorporate those into your website design to create a unified brand image.
- Display a list of upcoming events that changes automatically over time
- Check usernames and passwords to allow specified users access to special information
- Develop a database of registered users
- Vary the information displayed to keep your website fresh
If you need an interactive site with visitor feedback, contact forms, request for literature forms, etc., we can easily design these for you.
If you want to sell products or services over the internet, we can help you decide which type of e-commerce service is best for you. We can set up a shopping cart service and refer you to an online credit card processing company. Or, you may want to use a third–party company such as PayPal that will both accept credit cards and host the shopping cart for you.
We provide top quality web hosting service at very competitive rates. In addition, we can take care of your website hosting. Contact us for more information on hosting rates and features.
Domain Name Registration
Each website needs a unique name, sometimes referred to as a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). We can help suggest domain names for you, research available names, and take care of the domain name registration for you.
We thoroughly enjoy redesigning websites. Is your website a bit out-of-date? Maybe your website is hard to use. Potential customers will quickly leave a website that they find confusing or hard to navigate. After your website has been up and running for a while, you may realize that there are a number of things that you would like to add or are just not happy with.
We excel at redesigning websites to make them more effective. We will work with you to determine what you like about your old website and what you would like to change. Of course, we will give you our opinion on what we believe should be changed and/or added.
Please contact us for a free analysis and consultation regarding your website.
After your website is up and running, we highly suggest that you keep it current and fresh. This is one of the keys to bringing new visitors to your site and keeping old customers coming back.
Fresh content also helps your website stay “visible” to search engines. We offer a number of possible website maintenance arrangements—monthly, hourly, etc.
If you would like an analysis of your website traffic, we can set up your website to provide feedback on how your visitors found you and how they interact with your site. You’ll be able to focus your marketing resources more effectively and improve your website.
Usability testing is essentially evaluating a website by collecting data from people while they are actively using the website. It is really the best way to evaluate how well a website is designed.
If you would like to see how your website is being used by potential customers, we offer usability testing and analysis. We bring in unbiased subjects to navigate your website and record and analyze their movements.
Ideally, usability testing is performed as a website is being developed so that potential problems can be found and fixed early in the design process. However, usability testing can also be carried out on an existing website to evaluate any problems that exist.
