Web Design & Development
All of our websites are tailor made to you fit your needs with a style and functionality that stays consistent with your brand or image. Whether it’s a simple 3 page personal website or a 100+ page commercial business website, we create your website design with the look and the functionality it needs to help you grow your brand.
A website design can consist of a brand new website, or a redesign of your old website. Either way The Stiz Media will offer style, appeal, higher functionality and advanced site structuring for greater usability.
Besides your typical pages (Home, About, Services and Contact), your website may include some standard extra features including but not limited to:
A blog is a great way for you to keep your users up to date on the happenings of your business or brand. We can offer you some basic training to give you the ability to add new posts to your website, or you can use one of our maintenance packages to have us update your website as you see fit.
Also referred to as “e-commerce”, we can setup a web shop and shopping cart allowing your business to generate revenue via online sales. Shops can be managed by you or we can handle the product management for a monthly fee, you decide.
If you’d like to show off photos of your business or brand, we can setup a photo album with photos supplied by you. If you don’t have photos, we can arrange a photography session with a professional photographer to make sure the photos on your website represent the professionalism of your business.
We can create an online calendar so your users can know what’s happening and when it’s happening. A calendar can be completely managed via the backend of the website, or your schedule can be managed via alternate calendar services like Google Calendars.
Have content that you want to only offer to paid subscribers? A membership site may be just the right fit for your business model.
A forum is the ultimate in user interaction. Add a forum or message board and build a community around your website.
Often times it’s helpful to show off your business or brand by offering audio or video to your users. When words aren’t enough, we can embed videos and audio players on your website, whether it’s a dedicated page or added individually to blog posts.
The extra boost to ensure success for your business may come from a well planned social networking strategy. We are able to integrate social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram, Pinterest, etc., into your website to give your users the complete view of your business as well as giving your content the ease and ability to spread quickly via social media.
You can rest assured that The Stiz Media uses the most up-to-date, standard, best practices when designing and developing our websites. After all, our name is associated with every website design we develop and launch!
All of our website designs come standard with the basic techniques used for Search Engine Optimization. We don’t use and bad (black hat) techniques that are now known to penalize your site ranking.
Since most of our websites we design are built using the industry leading WordPress platform, we have the ability to offer an easy ‘hand-off’ to our clients. This gives you (if you’d like) the ability to make changes to the website yourself. Though not always recommended, you can take back the power of your own website (with a small learning curve).
