Website Design and Development
The value of a beautiful website that elegantly introduces new visitors to your brand cannot be underestimated. Your website is often the first interaction that potential customers have with your business, and you don’t get two chances to make a first impression. What kind of impression do you want your site to give? Is your current site giving the positive reflection of your business that you want it to be? If not, it might be time to consider a renovation.
Whether you are looking to start fresh with a completely new site or just want to give your old one a face-lift, the professional website designers at Ruby Porter Marketing and Design can help. We will work with you to identify the key functionality and style you’d like your site to have, and our expert developers and designers will set out to provide it for you.
Content Management Systems (CMS) We Often Recommend
Magento was built from the ground up to serve as an e-commerce CMS, and it does its job well. If you are planning on selling many different products online, Magento is the way to go. WordPress and Craft are capable of being used for e-commerce, but they have difficulty when there are a large number of products involved. Magento is built to overcome those issues and allows your site to sell a large number of products without sacrificing speed.
Craft has quickly become one of our favorite CMS’s to use when building new websites as it gives our developers the building blocks necessary to construct a website from the ground up. Craft gives us both the freedom and the tools to construct a website exactly as we want it without any superfluous functionality. This makes Craft a great option for those looking for lots of customization for their website.
WordPress has come a long way in the last ten years, evolving from a blogging system to the most popular CMS in the world. WordPress is easy to learn, setup, manage and update, and there are thousands of themes and plugins from which to choose, making WordPress very versatile. Since it’s so popular, there are millions of users out there who are part of a community with a wealth of knowledge when it comes to needing help and advice.
While WordPress, Craft and Magento are the CMS’s we most often use, we have the ability to work with others and to create custom applications. For example, we have used Laravel and CodeIgniter to create PHP frameworks for custom web applications. Share with us what you have in mind, and we will give you our best recommendation for the tools necessary to get the job done.
