Website Design Services in Hampton, VA
Is Your Business Currently Leveraging The Power Of Digital Marketing?
Skyfall Digital Media is here to help you grow your business.
The most important part of your digital footprint is to have a custom website. There is a steadily increasing number of people who are searching for potential businesses by using their mobile devices, tablets, and personal computers. The research that they are performing is directly related to which businesses that they decide to engage. Without a website, your business will not be discovered by those who would otherwise be potential customers. Our website design services are focused on accurately portraying who you are and what you are offering to your customers.
WordPress Website Hosting
We decided to utilize the WordPress platform for several reasons. At this moment in time, approximately 45% of all websites across the entire planet are running on it. It is a very mature platform that has a seemingly endless amount of support from several different extremely creative groups of programmers. When we decided to make this our platform of choice, the fact that it has a large user base was very important to us. The last thing we want to do is have to deploy a bunch of websites for our customers (and ourselves!) that have to be rebuilt on another platform because the one we selected is no longer supported. The next phase was for us to deploy our own web servers built on the latest hardware and software. This enables us to not only build your website, but to be able to host it for you as well. A very important aspect of owning a website is to ensure that it is very fast and efficient. Many people will not return or venture beyond your home page if your website is slow to load. Our website hosting services are setup to maximize the delivery speed to your end users.
WordPress Performance Optimization
We’ve built your website and it is running on our aforementioned fast web servers: the next logical step is to ensure that your site is optimized for speed. This means that the code and images are as lean as possible to deliver a positive experience for your customers. The major search engines (Google, Bing, etc.) monitor page loading times. They rank slow websites lower than those that perform better. The optimum page load time is 1 second or less. If you are reading this and already have a WordPress website, we offer free consultation in this area. If you contact us, we’ll generate a report and share it with you that shows you how well your site is performing. If there are issues, we can fix them for you. If we build a new website for you, this service is part of the package.
SEO - Search Engine Optimization
Every business owner who has a website wants people to visit their site which should hopefully translate to an increase in customers. It would be great if we could build your website, optimize it for speed, and deploy it without anything further, but that is not the case. The biggest game being played on the internet is SEO experts competing against each other for the top spots within the major search engines. This is a perpetual service that never ends until you decide that you don’t want your website to be found by potential customers. For most active businesses, this is a never ending cycle. SEO is a very complex set of skills that require special attention to detail. Everything on your website, both visible and invisible, must be configured in a manner that gains as much web traffic as possible. The algorithms that rank websites are constantly being updated which means that SEO strategies are constantly changing. We work very hard to stay ahead of the curve to ensure that our customers websites are performing very well.
WordPress Security Service
Since the first computer hit the internet, hackers from the “black hat” community have been waging a war against the “white hat” community. This silent war went on for several years without being known about by many people. As technology has expanded, so have the abilities of both of these groups. If you own a website, you are automatically a target to those who, for whatever reason, desire to compromise your piece of digital real estate. Our resident WordPress Security Expert has the tools and skillset to mitigate the majority of attacks that are launched against websites across the world on a daily basis. You may think that you new website that is barely visible to the world isn’t a target, but that is not the case. It is very important to secure your website.
Custom Logo Creation
Another important part of your overall digital real estate is to have proper branding established. The focal point of branding is a logo for your business. We’re fortunate to have a couple of digital artists on our staff that can create something amazing for your business. We have a logo design questionnaire that we can send to you that will help us create draft versions of your logo. We will consult with you throughout the entire process to ensure that the final product is exactly what you want. Your logo should be something that people would want to wear on a t-shirt, hat, etc. The final product will be delivered to you in several different formats (color, black, white, transparent, etc.) to you can use them everywhere that they are needed (pens, business cards, your website, etc.).
WordPress Maintenance Service
Your website is man made. The software and hardware that it runs on is as well. Everything will eventually fail, regardless of how advanced it is. Our maintenance services ensure that your website is saved to an offline storage device. We also update the software (WordPress and it’s plugins) on a monthly basis to make sure that your site is running in the most recent stable version of everything. This is a critical service that shouldn’t be passed over. The immense amount of time that it takes to create a website and not to mention the importance of it in regards to your customer base, can all be lost due to unforeseen failures. Don’t look back with regret; know without a doubt that your website is being updated and saved on a regular basis by qualified professionals.
