YOUR VISION/OUR CREATIVITY
Strong branding and accessibility are two key components to any successful business, and we specialize in making that happen. A well-designed website is a necessary vehicle to support both of these areas.
Stop wasting valuable time and energy trying to learn the process of website design. Instead, tell us what you want—what your vision is—and leave the technical work to us. Our team can develop a brand-new website for you, convert a static website to a web-based content management, or we can expand your website to include things like:
- e-commerce/shopping carts
- scheduling systems
- links so your customers can follow you on social media
- many other common services
After our experts work out the complex process of designing your website, you will be amazed with the ease and new capabilities at your fingertips. Our website design process typically takes 6-8 weeks, depending on scheduling, complexity of your build and the time it takes to gather important components from you like staff photos, special pictures or graphics, product photos, etc. In the beginning, Web Design by Knight consults with you to gather all information, details, graphics, and more to present your business in the manner you desire. The more open and honest you are with us early on, the more stunning and representative your website will be. After you look over your new website you have opportunity to request changes and modifications in order to guarantee that we’ve achieved your vision.
THE TOOLS WE USE
Our web designer hand codes many of the more visual aspects of your site—colors, shapes, even some of the animated graphics. She is a wizard!
We rely on WordPress for much of the structure and organization of the websites we manage. There are many platforms you can use to build your website, just like there are many locations you can choose to house your physical business. But after working on every platform that’s burst onto the scene for nearly three decades, we’ve found WordPress provides the most consistent high-quality results for our clients. Here are just a few reasons why:
WordPress is truly SEO friendly. Some self-hosted platforms build beautiful websites, but they are blind to search engines. And a website that potential customers cannot find is a great hinderance for a business.
Customization Options. With WordPress, your choices are truly endless. And WordPress supports any type of website so if you need a robust shopping cart system, learning platform, membership site, etc. WordPress has the capability to deliver.
It supports media of all types. Want to use audio, images, documents or video? WordPress has you covered.
WordPress is Secure. While no platform is 100% insulated from cyber threats, WordPress sets the standard in taking aggressive steps to prevent it’s platform from all manner of attacks.
WordPress is portable. If you need to take your website with you to another provider (though we hope you don’t), it is easy to transfer it over to either a new server or take on the responsibility yourself.
We rely on SEO software to ensure that we are using descriptions and key words that make your site show up at or near the top of the page results. So, when potential customers search for a business like yours, your site will be one of the first they see.
