Responsive website design:
A responsive layout is one that responds to the type of device that is viewing it. It changes shape and dimensions to provide the optimum user experience.
As a web developer, I see the increasing number of people that view websites on mobile devices rather than on desktop computers. The screenshot below was taken recently as statistics for a popular website of mine.
The red circle indicates the percentage of users that use mobile devices to find the site versus desktop computers.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization):
SEO like any form of marketing, if done right, can have a huge impact on your bottom line. In the age of the Internet, most businesses are struggling just to get by. No matter what type of business you run, being visible in the search engines can make a difference in the success of your company.
If you happen to run a local professional service like a plumbing contractor, law firm or insurance agency, its mission critical to have search engine exposure. Nobody looks up stuff in the phone books anymore. If they need to find an attorney they simple go online and Google it. This is where most businesses are losing out. Most local professional services have little to no search engine exposure. How many potential clients per day do you think you are losing due to not showing up on the first page in Google? For most small to medium businesses this can be a game changer. Increased search engine exposure can lead directly to your bottom line.
Most retail companies have a website but that’s generally where it stops. They may put their website on their business cards and on their front doors but that’s usually about it. The way online shopping is increasing more and more each year, if your products aren’t visible to searchers, you are leaving money on the table.
The Sheer Numbers
Depending on your location you may get some decent traffic coming through your store or stopping by your office. That kind of traffic is nothing compared to the keyword volume most searches get. Let’s put it this way, if you run a ladies boutique store and sell handbags. How many more handbags do you think you would sell if you came up on the first page for black handbags or handbags online? You could easily triple or quadruple your sell through rate.
You are not required to pay us for SEO each month it does not perform as promised.
Social Media Management:
This includes designing and setting up Facebook, Twitter and Google+ accounts, as well as updating each of them weekly.
Content management system:
A content management system (CMS) allows anyone with simply a valid username and password to make changes, additions or revisions to your website without ANY special knowledge or training. Using a content management system, you can easily upload images, embed videos, stylize, change or rearrange the text etc.. We typically use WordPress, which is the most common of such systems by far. This is completely free and easy to use and update. When we integrate a CMS into your website, we maintain the look and feel of the mock-ups you approved in the graphic design stage.

Home Page Slideshow:
Please see JAGFreightSolutions.com’s home page for an example of a slideshow with rotating graphics. The contents of such a slideshow may act as either ‘calls to action’ or advertisements for different pages of your website, or they may just be non-clickable images of your portfolio, etc..
All printed materials are done with professional offset printing. The brochures are full color on 100lb gloss book with aqueous coating. The price for all design work is based upon an hourly rate of $40. The prices listed above are the minimum prices for each project. Please visit our studio to view some samples of the various options.
Photo gallery page:
There are several options for photo galleries. Here is an example of a responsive photo gallery (functions on mobile devices). Some use a ‘light box’ technique for loading the image to the center of the screen and allowing the user to click ‘next’ or ‘previous’ to easily navigate through the images.
Custom graphics and icons:
When we create a new website, or give an existing one an overhaul, we design the look for the entire site. This includes
- Any other reusable component of the website
We develop mock-ups for your review until you are completely satisfied, then we convert the approved mock-up to HTML/CSS and proceed to finish your website. More about custom graphics and icons.
The $350 price will cover the site-wide template and the home page and does not encompass additional pages requiring custom graphics. It also does not cover costs for stock imagery which may be used in the design.
When you employ us for photography, we take that very seriously and go to great lengths to produce exceptional images. This usually requires taking of several hundred pictures per hour with our Nikkon D300 with a combination of our 18-200mm, 70-200mm f2.8, or 50mm f1.4 lenses. Post-processing involves filtering through these images to find all the best shots, then cropping, editing and/or enhancing them to offer extremely high quality images that represent your business in an attractive and professional way.
After we’ve processed the images, we present them to you as though they are stock images for you to purchase. This system creates an incentive for us to generate a large quantity of excellent photos and provides you with the peace of mind knowing that you will only need to pay for the photos you like. These full-resolution photos are typically under $30/each.
