Whether you are contemplating your first website, wondering what you can do to make your existing website more interesting, productive or profitable, or just curious with some questions... please feel welcomed to email or call.

I'm not sure how other web designers handle it, but I consider it “my job” to promote and enhance my client's services, goods and information on the web. I take that job seriously. A successful website is really more than just words and pictures on the web. It is more than “web design.” The bottom line is how effective a particular website will be now or how efficient it can be in the future. My clients decide how much they want to invest in the project, what goals they would like to achieve. My job is simply to give them the "biggest bang for the buck" and get them where they want to be. I tend to do it fairly well.

Most clients are pleased and satisfied with the original website I build for them – and they have kept the same website for years. I don't necessarily recommend that approach, but I'm just the web-guy. Others want to be more ambitious on the web – so we do more. Each client is different. Each website is different. Before I accept any web project, I ask questions and I listen. I probably ask questions than you will ask me.

I do not spend a lot of time working on my own website. If there are any questions, thoughts, issues, or concerns that come to mind... bring them to the table. The philosophy behind the webstudio is to make everything as practical, simple and affordable as possible. For well over a decade, I've maintained over 95% of my clientele. I don't try to explain that. I would like to believe there is a reason for it. I am simply grateful for it.

THE WEBSTUDIO

“There are seven key qualities

to a successful website...”

For those that landed here for the quick answer to the most popular question...

Average costs, for a simple 4-5 page (“from scratch”) website, are in the neighborhood of $350-450 USD. The price includes assistance in content gathering, graphic design, best practices html site building, copy/content writing and/or editing. If you supply a majority of the site content (words/images) it can reduce the costs involved. Otherwise, we work together in compiling the content. All new websites are built in a adaptive format – they are mobile-friendly. An initial Organic SEO is implemented with each website build, along with an assurance of full-first-indexing by the Google© search engine, establishing an analytics account (so you can monitor how your website is doing), and guidance in establishing Google/Bing Local Business Listings (to get your website in front of potential site-visitors).

Longer term, and more in-depth SEO, website development, and web/traditional marketing services are also available. For those interested in learning more, I encourage you to explore the website and to contact the webstudio.

Going Mobile?

 

Mobile web browsing became more popular than desktop browsing for the first time in 2016. Chances are that over 85% of all web browsing will be done on smartphones this coming year. That simple fact implies a lot – for those that do not have mobile friendly websites and for those that do!

 

The webstudio has been busy working on website conversion projects these past few months – moving them from the older static html format to mobile-friendly. It is a time-consuming, but relatively inexpensive and painless process. It averages out to about $20 USD per page for simple, smaller (under twenty page) sites – whether they are traditional html, PHP or created using a website builder like WIX, Weebly or anything similar. If you are giving it some thought, or have questions... let's talk about it. Click/tap here for more information on mobile-friendly conversions.

All Aboard Pizza

New Milford CT

Pizzaria -Restaurant

A RECENT PROJECT: In the late autumn of 2018, we began work on updating the (ten year old!) website of All Aboard Restaurant in New Milford CT. At first, the idea was to just update the menu and prices, but – once we talked about it for awhile – the project became a little more interesting. Not only did we do the menu and price updates, we made the website mobile-friendly. Also, we integrated the website with EDC Online Menu Systems for online ordering for pickup and delivery. It was something the owners had wanted to do for awhile. All in all, it was a very significant and cost-effective upgrade. To see how it works, visit the All Aboard Restaurant website. And, if you are in the New Milford area, order yourself a pizza or two!
