Many find out the hard way that web design is more than just slapping some words and pictures together and posting them online.  At Web Creations By Z, we know that a solid web design often involves a lot of hard work... we mind the details and we’re ready to go to work for you. 

Analysis - We ask the right questions and most importantly, listen to your answers.  Whether your requirements are basic or complex, our Website Planning Guide helps us to learn your goals and intentions.  Then we present insightful ways to fulfill those goals.  Once completed, the objective is clearly defined. 

Design - We translate your needs and goals into a web site that is original, cost effective, and ready to fulfill it’s intended role.  Our documented Development Methodology insures that we consistently meet or exceed our client’s requirements.

Testing - We sweat the details.  We use multiple versions of multiple browsers to test and re-test each web site, ensuring that each visitor sees our client at their best and has a smooth, enjoyable visit. 

Throughout this process, Web Creations By Z is mindful of the fact that this is your website, not ours.  In order for your site to be successful, it must meet your business needs, suit your organization’s image, as well as fit your budget.  Web Creations By Z will take all of those factors into account and more… to create a site that is as unique as your business or organization.  Contact us today and lets get started!

Blogger Integration

When it comes to organic web searches, content is king… and blogging is a great way to build a wealth of relevant content and keep a site fresh.  Blogging provides a platform for delivering up-to-the-moment, topical content without altering your website’s structure.  Just a post or two a month can generates a great deal of content over time… Content that contains valuable keywords that are cataloged by the search engines.

Keep in mind, for the best results, your blog needs to cover topics relevant to your customers and their needs.  Blogs that just contains press releases touting your accomplishments won’t keep visitors coming back for more… nor is it likely to provide information a prospective customer would use in a web search.  However, managed properly, a blog can be a valuable resource to your current customers as well as a source of new customers. 

Web Creations By Z can integrate a blog using Google Blogger, virtually seamlessly, into a new or existing website.  Google provides the infrastructure for managing your posts.  Even better, they’ll catalog every topic and keyword you post.  Contact Web Creations By Z and have us integrate a blog into your website.

Fresh Content - Whether information appearing on a single page or information throughout the site, by keeping the content fresh and meaningful, visitors are more likely to bookmark your site and return to see what’s new in the future. 

Dynamic Capabilities - Sections of text, or even whole pages, can be added on the fly with the site’s navigation updated automatically to reflect any changes. 

User Friendly Interface - Maintaining HTML can be intimidating.  We develop custom interfaces that are user friendly and easy to learn.  That way, clients can concentrate on the content instead of wasting time on the HTML. 

Accurate, Up-to-date Information - Running a special or changing prices this week?  Get it on your site quickly.  Organizations, such as sports leagues, can manage schedule changes and cancellations on-line.  Since the updated information is on the site is immediately, there’s no need for the tedious process of calling everyone on a phone list.

Mobile Optimization

Hey there!  You’re probably reading this on a mobile device right now, so I don’t have to tell you how frustrating it can be viewing a regular website on a mobile device.  In fact, almost half the respondents to a recent survey of mobile users stated that they routinely choose a different search result if their target website is not mobile friendly. 

WCBZ Mobile Optimized Website

Every day, more people are using smartphones and tablets to surf the web.  They use their mobile devices to comparison shop, make purchases, and research products, even when at home.  Just like you, when they arrive at sites that aren’t mobile optimized, often their experience is frustrating causing them to leave the site.  That’s why this site is, and your site should be, optimized for viewing on mobile devices. 

Need another reason to optimize your website for mobile devices?  Search engines like Google, Yahoo! and Bing can detect the type of device being used and tailor the results.  A site that is well ranked when searched from a desktop may not rank as well in a search performed from a mobile device if the site is not mobile optimized. 

The mobile web is no longer just an idea - it’s a reality that will impact any organization with a website.  Many industry experts project that within a short time, mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Internet access device. 

Is your website designed to meet your customer’s needs? If not, contact us today and have Web Creations By Z optimize your site for mobile devices, before any more of your potential customers go elsewhere.

Web-based Applications

The Mobile PC Guru</a> uses a custom application to track hardware and help tickets

The Mobile PC Guru uses a custom application to track hardware and help tickets.

It used to be that custom software applications were the domain of large corporations.  Not many small businesses could afford the infrastructure, nor the personnel required to manage everything from the databases and hardware to the operating system and the source code itself.  But that’s not so any more!

Our custom web based applications can be internet enabled or designed to run on your local network, complete with backup and recovery.  We design them to be cost effective, have intuitive interfaces, and be easy to maintain so that as your business grows, so to can your web site and application.

• Your website represents your company to the online community.  Businesses adapt their products, services, and marketing to meet the ever changing needs of their customers.  It just follows then that your web site should be updated on a timely basis to reflect these changes.  Your site needs to represent what your company has become, not what it once was.

Search Engine Marketing - Search Engine Marketing (also known as Pay-per-click Advertising) is a unique tool in that it targets only people that are already actively looking for the goods and services that you provide.  Advertisers bid on individual keywords (search terms) and their ads are displayed along with the organic search results.  The more you agree to pay per click for a specific keyword and the more effective your ad, the higher your site will rank in the paid search results.

A successful Pay-Per-Click advertising campaign will increase the volume of quality traffic to your web site.  Quality traffic, because these people are literally searching for what you have to offer.
