Step 1. Research

Competitive analysis, keyword research and a keen understanding of the target audience. Those are the critical first steps to success.

Step 2. SEO-based Content Strategy 

Content Strategy means that your site will deliver the right content, to the right people, at the right time, for all the right reasons. For us, copywriting and graphics are not after-thoughts. They are the foundation of a successful SEO strategy and the key to differentiation. We team up with BNBranding to ensure the very best content in your business category.

Step 3. SEO- Based Site Architecture

User flow, linking strategy and URL structure has a huge impact on your future SEO rankings. So we do it right from the beginning. 

Step 4. Design

Gorgeous, arresting design can mean the difference between a click-out and a check out. Our graphic designers will help polish up your brand for the most effective ever.

We’ve been building websites since 1993, before Google was even a thing. So our process is well-tuned. We know how to get projects through to completion, with the least amount of hassle and the most efficiency. We are a web developer located in Bend, Oregon but service clients worldwide.


Step 5. Development

We’ve seen it all. Currently, we build our sites on the Webflow, WordPress or Shopify platform, depending on your objectives. Then, we layer on all the necessary bells and whistles to make your site function perfectly in context with the rest of your business.

Step 6. Testing and Iteration 

This step is surprisingly easy when you begin with a solid strategy and exceptional content. We don’t spend months going back and forth because it was all approved upfront. 

Step 7. Maintenance and training

We’ll work with your in-house webmaster or marketing coordinator to make sure the site is easily updated and constantly monitored. Because SEO rankings are not static. You always have to mind the store.
