Small Business Website Design and Development
JTPratt Media specializes in small business web design for multiple reasons:
- Our webmasters have been doing this since 1995
- We have created, designed, and maintained hundreds of small business sites
- We ARE small business owners ourselves
We are definitely involved in the WordPress community, having spoken at WordPress meetups and annual WordCamp’s, and also doing support for our free plugins in the official WordPress.org repository. The majority of the people we interact with in these areas are definitely more technical in nature.
We always tell (those people) that the majority of clients we interact with are (non-technical people) at small businesses and corporations. Since WordPress now powers more than 70+ million websites, you can bet that the majority of websites used by businesses that are owned by non-technical people. If you are a small business owner looking for a commercial website or professional website designer – we understand your needs.
Don’t Be Taken By Hit and Run Web Design – We Want Long Term Clients
Since we have been building websites for more than 17 years, we’ve seen our share of “hit and run” web design jobs from competitors. These are business website designers that just want to get you in and out as quickly as possible. They want to get you an estimate, get your money, and once the project is complete they walk away and move on the next job as quickly as possible.
Our process for small business website design follows these points:
- Identify Your Needs
- Estimate the Cost
- Build a Wireframe (stick) Prototype
- Design and Code Your Project
- Deploy and Set Your Website Live
- Teach You to Maintain Your Content (if applicable)
- Perform Online Promotion or SEO
- Help You Maintain and Upgrade Your Website
Small Business Website Services
We offer multiple website services for the small business website owner, and nearly every initial project turns into a long term client relationship. Our goal is to make you as self sufficient as possible, enabling you to reach your online goals of increased exposure, sales, leads, and traffic. We both understand and perform website design, development, enhancement, maintenance, security and hardening, online marketing and Google Ranking, SEO, social media management, stats, analytics, and tracking, and backup and disaster recovery. You will have no need to hire a graphic designer, coder, SEO expert, marketing agency, PPC expert, and server admin or webhost admin – we have experts on staff to handle all of these roles (and more) while servicing your account.
Our Business Website Services Include the following:
[toggle title=”Webhosting”] We have worked with hundreds of webhosts online for client project work, and are very familiar with shared webhosting setup and configuration, VPS (virtual private server accounts), as well as both managed and unmanaged dedicated servers. We can provide setup, maintenance, and security and hardening or admin features for any of these types of accounts. Even if you don’t have a domain name or webhosting setup – we can do everything for you from beginning to end.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Website Migration”] Need your website moved from one webhost or one server to another? We have very affordable website migration services that can also include security and hardening, or even migration from one CMS to another or static HTML into WordPress.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Email Hosting and Setup”] Many small business clients choose to have us setup their email hosting either with their webhosting account, or a third party service (like Rackspace). We can setup any email accounts or forwards that you might need (and show you how to maintain them on your own if necessary).[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Complete Small Business Website Design”] We can provide a completely custom website design in Photoshop, slice that to HTML and then into the theme template of your choice (like WordPress). We can create custom theme admin options for management, custom sliders, portfolios, testimonials, picture or image galleries, video hosting setup and embedding, audio embedding, event calendars and custom ticketing options, SMS text options, notifications, subscriptions, and more.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Premium Theme Website Configuration and Setup”] Already have a premium theme purchased for WordPress, and you need to have it installed and configured for your business website? We not only can do that, we can customize it in nearly any configuration you could want.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Small Business Website Re-design”] Do you have an existing website that you need redesigned? We often do redesigns for homepages, blog pages, e-commerce sections, or maybe just to add additional functionality to the theme or plugin enhancement. No budget is too small, we can quote just about anything – and we are happy to take on new clients at any project level.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Added Functionality or Features”] Did you wish your website just had a certain feature? Would certain functionality make your business website easier for you or your clients to use – or save you time? We have fielded some pretty strange client requests over the years (and fielded them all). In many cases, we are happy to suggest existing solutions to your problems (when we have them), and other times we just have to customize and existing plugin or theme feature to create what you want. We can and have completely built new solutions from the ground up for all kinds of things from API work (ebay, Amazon, Google, Google Maps), to ticketing, events, invoicing, affiliate marketing, auctions, classifieds, and more.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Google Rankings and SEO”] There’s nothing worse than having a business website that doesn’t generate any sales or leads. That’s nothing more than a business card on the web. If your website doesn’t bring the traffic you want, it’s probably because you haven’t invested the same amount of time and energy in online promotion as you have print media and traditional advertising (radio, flyers, snail mail, television, phonebook). We perform both on and off site SEO over time to ensure your online authority grows and grows over time.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”SMM (Social Media Marketing)”] Even though we see more and more businesses utilize social media every day (Facebook, Twitter), we see very few using it effectively. You can’t just create social media accounts and try and tell people “buy my widgets”. Social media is about engaging with real people – not posting links to your products and services every day. We can help you get actual results from your social media accounts with our SMM services for business owners.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”PPC Management (Pay Per Click or Adwords)”] If you don’t have enough online authority to bring the traffic you need organicly from Google (even if you’re building it over time), the only other alternative you have is to “buy it”. In Google Adwords we can setup targeted advertising for the keywords best used for your business. We can custom create and manage a turn-key Adwords campaign to jump start your sales.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”WordPress Website Setup and Maintenance”] As you can see, we do a lot of WordPress development and maintenance for websites. We can setup and configure WordPress, perform updates and upgrades over time, or intermittently help you on an “as-needed” basis as your WP expert when you need us.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”WordPress Custom Theme Work”] If you have a WordPress website already and want some custom admin features, or some maintenance (making sure it’s up to date and not vulnerable to security holes), we will work on any WordPress theme or framework past or present.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”WordPress Custom Plugin Development”] We can build a custom WordPress plugin to your custom specification, or enhance / fix / secure any existing free or premium plugin for you. We currently have several free WordPress.org plugin in the official repository of our own, and have created and enhanced dozens of plugins for clients over the years.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Google Analytics and Stats Analysis”] We install and configure stats and analytics on client websites all the time for various purposes. Everything from Google Analytics, to official WordPress.com stats, Clicky, Woopra, and CrazyEgg. The thing most website owners have a problem with is determining what to do with that data – and which numbers matter. We can analyze your stats and analytics and give you actionable steps to take to improve online moving forward.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Competitive Analysis and Keyword Research”] If you have a website, you have competitors. Wouldn’t it be helpful to know what it would take to directly compete head to head with your competitor’s website? What keywords do they use in what places? How much are they spending in PPC campaigns? How much SEO have they done? With our Competitive Analysis services we can “pick apart” what makes their online authority tick, and give you actionable steps to compete over time.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Logo or Graphic Design”] We have expert designers on staff that can create custom vector designs, logos, illustrations, and more for your website.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Website Hardening and Security”] We are WordPress and webhosting security experts who can secure and harden your website against hackers and spammers. We also clean malware infested and infected websites, as well as setup and configure backup and disaster recovery services.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Role Based User Functionality”] We can setup and configure your website to allow user roles to grant access to functionality on a “need to know” basis. Your website should only have one or two admins, while the rest are limited to author, editor, approver, or contributor capabilities. Also available is the ability to setup and configure a content submission, review, and approval chain process for your website.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Salesforce.com Integration”] We can and have setup website forms to directly (and indirectly) submit content to Salesforce.com accounts. WordPress plugins and other options are available.[/toggle]
[toggle title=”Online Forms and Surveys”] Setup and configuration of online forms, job forms, contact forms, surveys, applications, and more is available. Custom sidebar and widget contact forms available with or without captcha, custom Contact Form 7 and Gravity Forms integrations with any spec you require are also possible (as well as any other contact form plugin or script).[/toggle]
[toggle title=”eCommerce Website Design and Integration”] We have eCommerce website experience within WordPress (with plugins such as WordPress eCommerce, WooCommerce, e-junkie, paypal shopping cart, 1 Shopping Cart, PHPurchase, Shoppe, Cart 66, ShopperPress, WP eStore, Yak, eShop, QuickShop and more. We also build custom e-Commerce solutions in things such as Code Igniter, Magento, X-Cart, and osCommerce.[/toggle]
