WEB DESIGN CUSTOM FEATURES

Home/Features

Design Features

We create agency quality websites at prices that make sense for small business. Our modern designs offer impressive user experiences to help convert your visitors into paying customers. Everything we build is custom for your business, no pre-made templates or themes. Included Feature

Unique, Custom Design

Each website we make is custom and hand-crafted by our team. We identify your preferences during a design meeting and in turn create a unique design that perfectly fits your small business. Most of our competitors offer template based designs for a similar price but we believe one size does not fit all.

Professionally Created Pages

Our team works with you to develop a content outline and create the initial pages of your website. We'll guide you on how to write effective copy and the types of images that will perform best. If you'd prefer a more hands-off approach, ask about our content creation and photography solutions.

Add Unlimited Pages Using WordPress

Using the WordPress software, you are able to add an unlimited number of pages and blog posts on your own. Of course, we're here if you'd like assistance adding pages later on.

Created using HTML5 & CSS3

We use the latest technologies like HTML5 and CSS3 to insure you get the longest lifespan out of your investment. We stay up to date with current web design industry trends and methods.

Mobile & Tablet Support

We place a high emphasis on supporting all devices, now and in the future. A majority of our clients see more traffic from phones than computers. Every website we create is easy to use and works great on mobile devices. We may be biased, but we believe our solutions are the best in the small business website industry.

Mobile Navigation with Action Icons

Our mobile navigation system is simple to use on small devices. We add "action icons" at the top of the navigation screen for quick access to phone dialing, sending email, viewing maps, visiting social media and more.

Customizable Contact Forms

Customers can send you an email message directly from your website using a contact form. We customize the form fields to gather any information you'd like from the visitor. This is a great way to capture leads and keeps users focused on your website.

WordPress Features

The WordPress software gives you the power to create and modify the content on your website, without needing to go through us. While we're always here to assist, you have independence along with the ability to move to another provider. We build long term relationships through great service, not by locking you in with proprietary software. Included Feature

Create and Update Pages With Ease

People who are familiar with Microsoft Word feel right at home using WordPress. The page editing tools are very similar with a low learning curve. There is no limit to the number of pages your website can have.

Search Engine Friendly Code

Our WordPress sites are coded using search engine optimization best practices. We make sure things like headers, images, and metadata all are easily indexed by Google to improve your ranking.

Yoast SEO Plugin Included

Yoast SEO plugin software makes it easy to update titles, meta descriptions, and links to help improve your on-page SEO. It also automatically generates search engine sitemaps behind the scenes.

Access For Multiple Admin Users

WordPress allows for multiple admin users and keeps track of edits made by each user. You'll be able to see who was responsible for creating and editing specific pages. If another user is attempting to edit the same content as you, they'll be prevented from overwriting your edits.

Mobile Updating Capabilities

Need to update pages or blog posts on the go? The WordPress administration interface is fully compatible with mobile devices. While we wouldn't recommend building full pages on your phone, the feature is great for those quick tweaks and edits.

Password Protected Page Abilities

Sometimes you might need to prevent visitors from seeing certain pages. You can require a visitor to enter a specific password in order to access the content. While this isn't intended to keep mission-critical information private, it can be a great way to keep things from the eyes of competitors.

Extendable Now and In The Future

WordPress is open-sourced and has a great community of developers behind it. A new version is typically released each quarter, bringing along a host of new features. We regularly add new features to our Cemah Framework as well.

Support & Extras

You'll have a dedicated account representative throughout the process and beyond. We understand the strengths of small business because we're one ourselves. Included Feature

Completed In As Little As 2 Weeks

Once you provide the content for your website, we typically have the first beta to you within five business days. We've been able to complete projects in as little as 14 days, but typically websites are finished within 30 days. Just because we move fast doesn't mean you have to. We want you to take as much time as you need to create content and make informed decisions.

Quick Response Support

Have questions? Need honest strategic advice? We're a quick phone call away during the hours of 9am to 5pm CST. If you have an urgent after hours issue, we regularly check our support email 24/7.

Large Library of Free Stock Images

We have a library of over 80 million stock images at our disposal via the Shutterstock service. While authentic images of your business are always preferred, stock images can be a great way to get started or augment the images you do have.

Detailed Google Analytics Integration

What good is a website if you have no idea if it's working? We use the industry standard analytics service provided by Google, free of charge. Google Analytics provides data about your visitors over a duration of time, and even in real time! Keep an eye on pageviews, bounce rates, conversions and more.

Web Hosting

Our WordPress Care Plan is designed specifically for security, speed and reliability. You get extremely fast page loads through advanced caching, daily automated backups and automatic WordPress updates. Best part is, it's fully-managed by us. There is no configuration or upkeep required by you. Included Feature

Fully-Managed Web Hosting

Our hosting via our WordPress Care Plan is designed so you never have to think about it. There are no endless configuration panels or mysterious settings to adjust. We manage the entire software stack top-to-bottom behind the scenes.

Weekly Site Backups

Not only do we take weekly backups of your live website, we also keep a monthly backup just incase. Did you accidently delete a critical piece of information? Let us know and we can recover it. For redundancy, we also keep a version controlled record of your website's code.

Automatic WordPress Updates

WordPress releases major updates (dot releases) every quarter, bringing along new features. Typically, we roll them out seven days after they're made available. This gives time for the dust to settle and reduces the likelihood of issues. Security updates are released as needed and applied immediately.

Proactive Bug Fixes

Bugs happen. We wish we could say you'll never encounter one, but it's unrealistic. WordPress is a complex piece of software and we cannot always predict future code changes. We always do our best to minimize issues. If a bug does pop up, we take action immediately to fix it. Often, we find and fix them before you even notice!

Fast-Site Loading Cache

Site speed is important and can even impact your ranking on search engines. We've optimized our hosting cloud to be as quick as possible by using a CDN or content delivery network. Don't worry, you don't have to know what that is. That's what we're here for.

eCommerce

Our eCommerce websites are powered by WooCommerce, the largest eCommerce solution currently in use on the Internet. Directly integrated with WordPress, WooCommerce allows for an unlimited number of products, on-site checkouts, multiple payment gateways and more. Extra Cost Feature

Built For WordPress

WooCommerce is designed to pair perfectly with WordPress. It was even recently acquired by Automattic, the company behind WordPress. We believe it's the best eCommerce software solution for small business.

Add Unlimited Products

From a technical standpoint, the software can scale to handle an unlimited number of SKUs. In our experience, WooCommerce is best suited for stores with under 1000 items. While nothing will prevent you from having more, you'll find it harder to manage.

Variable Products

Having variations of the same product is a common need for eCommerce. Whether it's different colors, sizes or another attribute, WooCommerce can handle it without issue.

Virtual Products

Are you selling products that are not tangible? Virtual products are meant for things like eBooks, software, music, videos or other digital products.

Inventory Management

WooCommerce can keep tabs on your inventory and automatically switch products to out of stock. You'll also be notified when inventory is low to help you avoid running out in the first place.

On-Site Checkouts w/ SSL

Some eCommerce platforms redirect the user to a third-party website to checkout. Using WooCommerce, the customer stays on your website the whole time, keeping you in control of their experience. If you're website is hosted with us, we automatically provide you with an SSL security certificate to keep your site secure.

USPS/FedEx/UPS Shipping Quotes

Automatically generate accurate shipping quotes from any of the major shipping services. Simply define the dimensions and weights for each product and get real time shipping data. If you'd prefer to offer flat-rate shipping, WooCommerce has that too.

Automatic Tax Calculations

Need to collect sales tax but only within certain states? WooCommerce allows for complex tax collection based on the shipping address provided by the customer.

Multiple Payment Gateways

We offer three of the leading payment gateways to process credit card transactions. Using either Stripe, Braintree, or PayPal, your customers are able to pay using any major credit card.

Sales Reports + Exporting

Get detailed sales reports based on products, categories, dates, customers and more. WooCommerce also provides a CSV sales data export, which is compatible with many other types of software.
