The successful launch of any website requires careful planning and experience. At the beginning of each project, Compucast meets with you to determine the goals you have for your website. Understanding your business goals gives our team the ability to effectively determine how best to achieve measurable results and maintain project scope.
"I can count on one hand the number of businesses I would recommend after all these years...and after only 3 weeks, I will recommend you."

We believe communication is important from start to finish. The design and development of your website takes place online and is tracked from within a project board devoted to your site(s). Here, you can check on our progress and leave messages for our team at any time.
After you have approved the look and feel of your new website, we will outline a suggested site architecture and provide a framework for all elements and features desired, making recommendations as to what we have found works well. As we create each page of your website, we ensure that site structure and coding is optimized for search engines depending upon the goals weíve decided upon at the outset. Any customized programming features are also added at this time.
We believe the creation of your website is just the beginning. Your website should stay current and be given as much attention as your businessís physical location. As your website consultant, we are always here to answer any questions and provide guidance regarding the ongoing management and marketing of your new site. We will therefore meet regularly with you to determine objectives, implement strategies, recommend new website features, and review results.
It is important to ensure the functionality and performance of a site while retaining the integrity of its appearance. To this end, we perform cross-browser compatibility testing, ensure correctness of dynamic content and application functionality, test page loading times, and ensure that graphics and code are compressed without sacrificing quality.
We emphasize function and effectiveness to ensure the siteís interactive portions provide value to the end user, while not being too complicated for either our clients or their visitors to use.
Working closely with our clients, we often find opportunities to improve existing functionality of websites by providing customized interactivity. User input is a great source of these ideas, so we ask our clients to keep in touch with us on an ongoing basis with any and all ideas for improvements so that we may continue to provide services in the forefront of the web design and programming industry.
Having a website that is easily viewable on a mobile device is now more important than ever! View the statistics below. Although many sites are viewable through cell phones, they often require scrolling and enlarging the text in order to to be legible. If your site is designed in Flash or with Flash on its home page, viewers will see a blue dot only and are more likely to leave.
Mobile represents one of the largest marketing growth potentials. Should you have a separate mobile-friendly website, you also have another opportunity to increase your SEO, since mobile sites are submitted to search engines separately from your main website. It is therefore now necessary to consider these mobile phone viewers and provide sites that are easily viewed by mobile devices.
Compucast Web Media can help. We can make sure your website automatically directs mobile phone viewers to the mobile version of your site, showing a simplified version of your content with essential info, calls to action, and the ability to reserve or contact you. Meet the needs of mobile viewers and tap into the mobile market with a mobile-friendly website! Let us know if we can help.
