Web Development Services
At Suntouch Design, we recognize that today's internet users demand a visually rich experience from websites they visit. The look and feel of your website represents your overall image in the users' eyes, so we strive to provide the highest quality graphic designs and layouts. All of our websites come with a 100% original design tailored to your specifications and comply with modern web standards, including XHTML and CSS. We promise to deliver a clean and intuitive interface for your users to navigate through.
We also offer other graphic design services, such as logo, business cards, letterheads, and various print media design.
Content Management Systems (CMS)
Our advanced database-driven sites offer a convenient and secure method to instantly update and add to your website content. These sites are built using LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP/Perl) technology - the same as most of today's popular Web 2.0 companies - and our own in-house, light-weight PHP framework. This programming framework follows the principles of MVC (Model/View/Controller) and allows us to quickly deploy complex sites that are easy to maintain. What does this mean to you? It means that we employ proven technology and sound principles for a fast, reliable site.
Our database-driven sites are administered from a password protected control panel. This means that the authorized administrator(s) (and only the authorized administrator(s)) can update the website from any computer with an internet connection and a web browser - no extra software is needed. And while some CMSs are over-generalized with too many complicated options, each of our control panels is custom designed for every client - you get exactly what you need with an easy-to-use interface.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
With the establishment of search as the primary means of web discovery, SEO has become a crucial factor in generating online traffic. At Suntouch Design, we structure every web page wih SEO in mind, targeting important keywords throughout a site's architecture. This allows the search engines, such as Google, Yahoo and MSN, to properly index a site and present it higher in their search rankings. But site architecture is only the beginning of SEO, which is a continual process. We can offer more advanced SEO services, as well as consulting for effective SEO strategies.
Online commerce continues to expand at a healthy pace (up nearly 20% in 2007). Suntouch Design can offer full e-commerce solutions, whether you're selling one product or thousands. So if you have products to move, or even just a good idea, don't hesitate to join in this $120 billion market.
Blogging has become an extremely influential form of communication. A regularly updated and insightful blog will form a community, generate traffic and form cross-linking relationships, resulting in higher search engine rankings and more traffic. If you would like to integrate a blog into a new or existing site or simply set up a stand-alone blog, Suntouch Design can help. We can customize the design and functionality of all major blogging software to fit your needs.
Keep your users/customers informed about your latest products, postings, or anything else you can think of. Sending out a regular newsletter helps build a community around your site and keeps users coming back for more. We can set you up with an easy-to-use newsletter application from within your site along with a newsletter template that mirrors the look and feel of your main site to further strengthen your online brand.
Yes, we handle email accounts as well. Our most popular option involves creating accounts for your domain (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org) and using the web-based Gmail as a reader. This allows you to use all the benefits of Google's Award-winning email client, such as security, reliability, spam filtering and plentiful storage from any computer with an internet connection.
The art of analyzing traffic and usage patterns on your website is very important when considering site improvments. We can provide you with your own analytics tools or deliver expertly analyzed monthly reports.
We offer flexible hosting plans, where you can use our shared server, have us set up your own dedicated server, or we can let your IT department take care of it. It all depends on the needs of the project and your preference.
Every client has a unique vision; every project has differing necessities. We take pride in creating original products that meet our clients' individual needs. As such, we cannot easily list our fees without prior consultation. Feel free to contact us with ideas for your project and we'll gladly give you an estimate.
