What We Create

Producing Results For Our Clients

"In a very short period of time your team has built us a solid marketing foundation in the form of a world-class website supported by social media, direct and collateral strategies, all producing immediate response and results. All this and under budget too! It’s refreshing to collaborate with such a knowledgeable, hard-­working group and we are very pleased to consider you 'Our Creative People.'" - William Stephan

Always Branded. Never Cookie Cutter.

Each and every site we create is unique, carefully handcrafted to match the needs of your particular audience, and clearly conveys the nuances of your brand. To do that, we don't start with Photoshop as most others do, we start with a brand survey that gets to know you, your differentiators, how you stack up against your competitors, and a clear understanding your particular audience. The result is a website that is on-message, simple for your visitors to understand, and intentionally targetted to convert your audience. This customized approach ensures your site isn't just an necessary expense but becomes an investment that drives a visible return for your business – you can't get that value from an off-the-shelf template.

Simple, Highly-Engaging, & Delightful

Our design work is centered around simplicity, audience engagement, and delight. We design so that the content is not hindered by functionality or navigation, but so that the navigation is simply an aid and the content takes prominence. Typography is consistently used throughout the website, along with image styles that you can easily apply to any image as you are adding it in Backstage. Using these integrated styles will retain that consistent look and save you lots of time!

It Takes a Team

Creating a website that converts visitors into customers isn't the work of one person. It takes a marketer to understand how your site should be structured, a skilled writer to make each word communicate, a designer to use imagery to engage, and a developer to make everything work together.

Always Mobile-Friendly

We build responsive websites and mobile apps that look amazing no matter which device your customers pick up.

Best-practice SEO Informs Each Site

As an agency that also optimizes websites, our search engine optimization team works side-by-side with our design and programming teams so that your site's architecture is structured to perform well in search. In fact, we typically include our SEO Jumpstart with each site we build. During the Jumpstart we give each of your pages a unique title (often referred to as a meta tag) and a keyword-focused short (or friendly) URL before we submit your site to a search engine's crawlers. During that submission, your site goes through testing to ensure it's free from crawl errors. This is all part of the value of having an integrated marketing team under one roof.

Great Content Converts Visitors

Nearly anyone can sit down to write content – but should you? It is possible to save money by writing your own content, but after so much intentionality going into your site's architecture, design, programming, and search performance it is the content that will address your visitors needs, show them that you have the solution for them, and convert them to a customer. Our team is experienced in asking the right questions and tapping into your knowledge of your business, products, and services. We take that knowledge, layer on our own research, and create content that speaks accurately to your mission and to your target audience. The same team works with our clients on their search engine optimization so that your pages are not only written well but also written for the best search performance. Let our team help you in this critical area so that you can continue focusing on running your business!

Don't Do It All Yourself. Delegate.

Recommended for larger organizations with multiple editors, the User Manager gives you a way to delegate pages or sections of your site to others in your organization, while still maintaining administrative control. When a change is made by an editor, as an administrator you will be alerted with an email and requested to log in to approve the change. Once approved, that editor’s change goes live.

Search Engine Optimization

What is SEO?

Search engine optimization (SEO) initially links your site to search engines and is the discipline that continues to help your site rank for targeted keyword searches amidst the ever-changing landscape of online competition.

Ground-Up Structural Optimization

Every site we build is structured to perform well in Google, that’s why when one of our sites go live and we submit it to Google (part of our SEO Jumpstart), it’s picked up and crawled, sometimes on the same day! Google Analytics comes integrated directly in Backstage’s dashboard, allowing for seamless visitor tracking anytime you log in. Our Backstage CMS also takes the mystery out of on-page SEO by giving you direct access to easily make changes to your meta tags (page title, description, custom URL) while it guides your editing with best practice tips and ideas.

Not a One-And-Done Task

Beyond the site structure, it is critical that your content itself be optimized – and not just once when it goes live. Search engines re-rank sites continually based on fresh content and activity. Backstage gives you the tools to manage your site’s keyword-driven meta tags and provides tutorials on how to successfully accomplish that. As an agency, we have a team of SEO content strategists that can write and update your site for you if you prefer. We also do an audit to see how your site ranks against competing sites using the same keywords.

Initial SEO Jumpstart

Our Jumpstart is the initial, post-launch work we do to optimize each of your site's page titles, create a keyword focused URL/links for each page, and then submit your site to search engine's crawlers. It's automatically included in most of our site scopes. We also have SEO optimization features in our Backstage CMS which you can use to add pages and update keywords as your site grows.

Additional Jumpstart Activities

We can take your site's Jumpstart further with our content team's writing of your page descriptions, the 150-160 characters that show up in Google under the page title and link. We can also optimize your image alt tags and file names so that they show up well in image searches. While this work is time-intensive, its effects are worth your investment, leading you to rank more effectively - and quickly - for that target list of keywords.

Optimization Strategies Tailored for Your Budget

Since every client is unique, our approach isn’t cookie cutter but rather based upon careful analysis and strategy. We offer a full range of SEO, SEM, and content strategy solutions which go beyond the offerings of most of our competitors. We often recommend clients optimize their budget toward long-term, organic search keywords instead of paying for short-term, expensive keywords. Our pricing is always customized after thoroughly analyzing that client via a formal site audit and created strategy. This ensures we only suggest what your site needs.
