Let's be real! If your site isn't making money what is the point?
Also known as e-commerce, a shopping cart is arguably one of the most important components of an online presence since it will directly effect your bottom line.
Our e-commerce/shopping cart solution is something that can be “plugged into" your web site, and be managed through your easy to use administration panel. Our shopping cart solution comes with some of the following features:
- Unlimited Categories and Sub Categories.
- Unlimited Number of Products.
- Discount Manger.
- Manufacture & Vendor Management.
- Inventory Management
- Order Storage and Management.
- Secure Payment Gateways (Pay Pal, Authorize.net, 2CheckOut etc...).
- Coupon Management and Creation.
- Creation of Shopping Groups.
- Shipping Options & Modules.
- Shipping Cost Management.
- Much More.
Since your shopping cart is a part of your web site, opposed to a third party shopping cart solution, your domain name gets credit for all the content in each of your listings. Additionally, hosting and using your shopping cart comes with no additional cost beyond initial setup and configuration. This gives you full and immediate control over your online inventory and saves you thousands in I.T. costs.
Not everything follows a template. Somethings are too unique to be without an amazing designer.
We define custom applications as functions and features that fall outside of basic web development features, like blogs, forums, e-commerce polls and surveys.
Our custom applications are typically built on the Content Management Framework Drupal. We find Drupal to be amazingly secure, stable and extensible to achieve a scalable custom platform to meet almost any business need.
Drupal makes an excellent candidate for such needs like:
- Community Based Site
- Detailed Permission Levels For Multiple User Groups
- Custom Client Management System
- Real Estate Listing Sites
- Client Portals
- Project Management

To be clear, flash is an excellent tool that compliments a website. That said, we would stress it is a ‘tool’, not a platform.
It makes as much sense to build an entire website in flash, as it does to build an entire house with hammers. The hammer is a tool that helps build an infrastructure. Just the same, it is not advisable to build an entire site in the adobe flash language. Flash is a tool, not a building block. It has terrible Search Engine Optimization results, is very hard to manage and edit (not dynamic), not to mention expensive.
Our experience has shown that flash is something the user should elect to see, or choose to activate. This means those flashy intros with the skip button at the bottom of the page (sometimes called splash pages) we also discourage. It adds an unnecessary barrier between your users and the content they wish to see, and the search engines see little if any content, so it hurts your Search Engine Optimization results.
We convey this to you because there are many firms that charge a hefty price for flash sites. This is an injustice to the client because they are buying form over function and over invest literally in a ‘flashy look’.
So in short. Flash has its purpose and its place, and rest assured we have the team and talent to pull off any Rich Internet Application and more importantly apply it in a strategic way.
Your website should be able to go anywhere.. including mobile devices like iphones and ipads.
It is an undeniable fact that more and more people use their mobile devices to access the Internet for information. As our society becomes more efficient Internet users become more impatient, expecting to be presented with only the information they need to see.
Our mobile web sites extend from your current web site, but delivers a modified version of your web pages, a version specifically designed for efficient and easy use by mobile users.
Your content management system we provide will give you the tools to make the correct strategic moves without the need for a programmer or coding expert.
- Custom Tailored Joomla Powered CMS System.
- Take Full Control Over Your Web Content.
- Your Site Can Have As Many Pages As You Want.
- No need to learn a lick of coding.
What is a CMS? CMS stands for a content management system. This essentially provides our clients with a form based interface in which to edit and organize content on your web site.
What is a form based interface? An example of a form based interface you are familiar with would be email. Not many people know the intricate detailed code and functions that goes on when sending an email, but they do know how to fill out the form (i.e. Subject line, To, From, etc...) and hit the send button.
Very similar to your web site, you will have an interface (looks a lot like a Word document) where you can add pictures, text, links and more and then hit a “Save” button. Your content management system will have the following features:
- Capacity for unlimited web pages.
- Blog usage and integration.
- Twitter, Facebook and other social media integration.
- Photo galleries.
- Web links
- New feeds.
- Image Rotators.
- Banner Rotators.
- Password protected pages.
- User management.
- Shopping cart.
Is it hard to learn? No, and we provide videos and one-on-one training for every new client. Whether you choose to learn this interface yourself or if you purchase a support plan and have us make the changes for you, either way will save you time and money. If you learn how to operate this system then you save in I.T. costs because you make expected changes yourself. If you hire us, then the changes we make are through the same interface we train you to use, resulting in lighting fast changes preserving your support plan balance as long as possible.
We are a Comprehensive Media Firm with over 15 years of combined experience in web development, graphic design and search engine optimization.
Don’t get pulled in by other companies that claim to be web design companies. Unfortunately ,most companies that make this claim are just project managers that out-source your precious project to the lowest bidder in India or some high school student. We have experienced programmers, graphic designers and web developers on staff. Everything is developed, maintained and managed in-house.
We Specialize In:
- web design
- content management systems
- graphic design
- corporate branding
- flash development
- business consultation
- search engine optimization.
We use proven open source systems for our clients.
Open source platforms represent a product that is the result of tens of thousands of man hours of global collaboration, community support with proven tested results over more than a decade. This outcome simply can not be reproduced with companies who pay a group of developers to create a product.
By design proprietary companies will always have more limitations and lag time on security releases. To help prove this point, observe that http://thewhitehouse.gov uses an open source platform for their website. The government could have chosen any number of proprietary products for their online presence - there is a reason they choose open source - it is better!
Why don't we build with Dreamweaver or WordPress?
For the same reason you wouldn't use a shovel to move dirt when you have a backhoe. We find using these tools is a step backward from what we offer by default. We would have to regress or degrade our methods to employ these tools.
