I think, Businesses and Organizations need dynamic web sites that they can modify constantly.
A never changing billboard on the information superhighway may work for some, but many organizations need a site that can evolve and improve with them, over time.
A site built with a content management system makes it possible. One that allows fine grained access control allows the delegation of duties without sacrificing control.
We strive to build sites that accurately reflect the personality of the organization and which are useful and friendly to all the expected types of visitors.
- For returnees - information should be easy to find.
- For referrals the web site needs to make a good impression and communicate the style of the business. If your web site accurately conveys your style then customers are more likely to be happy with their experience.
- For potential customers who find your site with a web search: Your site needs to be well indexed and designed to be search engine friendly so that it will be at or near the top of the list on relevant searches. Then it also needs to make a good impression and communicate the style of your business. As with referrals - If your web site accurately conveys your style then customers are more likely to be happy with the real thing.
There will likely be types of information that change frequently like price lists, menus, staff, news, specials, etc. It is important that business owners, managers and staff both paid and unpaid, are able to make these kinds of changes on their own without unnecessary consultation, delay or expense. And without fear of inadvertently damaging the work of others or the overall design, look and feel of the site.
A robust content management system is the best way to allow this.
This site is built using Drupal CMS - open source content management software that allows a web site designer to create a totally unique site which finely controls the process. This is the same software that many of the most demanding web sites are built in, including the United States White House web site. On this site people from all over the world maintain their own groups listings and various people can add content of various types 24/7.
If you would like to discuss having such a site for your organization please contact me.
I will be happy to work with you to create a site that meets your needs and specifications at a price you can afford.
