Developing Websites Since 2002
Our Team started developing websites together in 2002, and we’ve been building custom WordPress websites since 2008. After completing hundreds of projects, we have learned that we do one thing better than anyone else – we build workhorse websites.
Our websites are built to serve the client’s business needs, maximizing productivity and minimizing long-term expense. Our websites are reliable, easy to manage and supported by a team that always gets the job done.
WordPress is the leading website platform & content management system for blog and brochure style business websites.
We find this is ideal for businesses that need flexibility and scalability as their needs change and grow. WordPress is highly customizable and easily managed by internal resources with minimal technical capabilities.
WooCommerce is an ecommerce plugin that transforms a standard WordPress website into a fully functioning online store.
Perfect for businesses that want to start selling products on an existing WordPress website or build a new online store, WooCommerce has an extensive library of plugins to extend the base functionality.
Shopify is a popular hosted ecommerce system that minimizes the need for technical expertise related to hosting and software maintenance.
This platform is best for merchants with simple to moderate needs for order processing and marketing. Shopify makes it easy to manage the day to day operations of both products and orders.

WordPress can be a great choice for small business websites because it can be easy to manage, update, and expand based on the needs of the business and its customers.
WordPress is the most popular Open Source Content Management System (CMS) in the world. The core code is constantly being updated and enhanced by a global team for new and improved functionality, security, and accessibility. There are tens of thousands of plugins available to extend the base functionality – the possibilities are endless and the software is constantly evolving and getting better.
We install and configure several well supported plugins as part of nearly every website we build. If additional plugins are needed, they can be included in your project contract.

Access to appropriate accounts such as your current hosting company account, domain name registrar, DNS, Google account, and any other account that is required to complete integration of statistics, marketing efforts, customer management, or any other functionality you require.
Our relationships with our clients are collaborative and we rely on open communication to keep projects on track. We will provide you with leadership and recommendations to help you end up with the best website for your business.
These are the type of costs associated with building and maintaining a website:
- Website design & programming
- Domain name registration (annual)
- Hosting account for your website and email accounts (annual)
- Software licensing for premium plugins & extensions (annual)
- Resources for making changes to the website (either internal or outsourced webmaster)
- Resources for software maintenance (either internal or outsourced webmaster)
We will include Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel, and Google Search Console verification as part of any project. You will need to provide us with the necessary access to be able to set these up and install them in your site (Google account access, Facebook account access). If there are other tracking codes or systems that you use and would like integrated into the site, we recommend that you discuss them during the onboarding phase to ensure that we are able to accommodate in a timely fashion.
Modern websites require regular maintenance to maintain peak working condition- including ensuring that your hosting hardware and software is maintained and kept up to date, as well as keeping your website software up to date as new versions and patches are released by their developers.
Keeping your website & server software up to date will help protect your website from being hacked or infected with malware. You decide if you want to handle this in-house or outsource it to a professional webmaster.
