Miami Website Designers
If you are looking for website designers in Miami this is for you. We can help to make your search easier with helpful suggestions on what to look for. For many people having a website built is something they have never done before so they don't know what options are available or how to find someone competent to do the work and reasonably priced. Then of course there is the question "What is a reasonable price?" and we will try to answer your concerns. The first thing to consider is that you are shopping for a service in an area that is totally unregulated by any government agency. So absolutely any person or company can legally call themselves professional website designers.
Beauty and Function - Can You Have Both?
The Development Team Approach
Long ago we had to decide if we wanted to offer inexpensive website design or top quality website design. We decided to build our business here in Miami a town famous for Miami Vice based upon a reputation for getting it right not by being the cheapest. We decided that if we charge a fair price then we won't have to say, "sorry" later that parts of the website don't look right, function well or that the wording is poorly written.
Wait don't leave yet!
This doesn't mean that our services are expensive; we charge a fair price for what you get. Everyone likes to get value for their money, you do, I do and all of my clients like to know they are getting a fair deal. We have all heard the saying, "Good things are rarely cheap and cheap things are rarely good" and it is a true statement.
We don't have a one person shop where one designer does it all; we use the team approach. What this means is that when you hire us you get four different people working on your website design project. The reason we use four different people is that they have four very different jobs to do and we simply don't find these skills in one person. With our Miami Website Designers you will have:
1. A website designer with a minimum of a four year degree in design.
2. A programmer also with a university degree of at least four years.
3. Basic search engine optimization will be built into your website by our SEO expert
4. Our copywriter who will write all the text for you will have a Master's Degree in Journalism.
The reason we need to have four people doing these jobs is that we have never found one person who is able to do all of these things. It has to do with the left brain vs right brain problem in which everyone is one or the other. Analytical people like programmers are said to be left brain dominant. People who are more creative like website designers are said to be right brain dominant. Since people are one or the other, we have found this is the only way to get the job done properly.
Here are some traits associated with left and right brain functions:
LEFT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
words and language
present and past
math and science
knows object name
RIGHT BRAIN FUNCTIONS
"big picture" oriented
symbols and images
present and future
philosophy & religion
can "get it" (i.e. meaning)
knows object function
So what's the point?
The point is that like the old saying goes, "Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten". We wanted to be remembered and to get repeat and referral business. The only way to do this is by charging a fair price and giving superior quality work.
Website Designers Took Her Money - She Wasted A Lot Of Time And Money
This woman had to deal with three different website designers. Two took her money and gave her nothing and a third simply couldn't get the concept of her business. A year and a half later she found us.
Now thanks to the great website she has she is the official Super Bowl 2010 travel concierge.
Website Designer Took My Money
If only I had a nickel for everytime a new client told me that
Remember this blog began with a statement that absolutely any person or company can call themselves professional website designers. Can you imagine going to a dentist only to find that the dentist simply decided to call himself a dentist one day without any training? Sounds silly right? You know that if you go to an attorney you will find someone with years of college training. Real Estate agents (in Florida) are licensed by the Department of Professional Regulation after passing a difficult exam. When a real estate agent does anything wrong they can lose their license and have to answer a formal complaint from the Department of Professional Regulation.
Now we will list all the requirements a person or firm must meet before they can call themselves "Professional Website Designers".
I wish we had something to fill in the blanks with but there are no regulations at all governing website designers. Do a search at your favorite search engine for "website designer took my money" and you'll see thousands of complaints.
If YOU want to call yourself a professional website designer there is no law at all to stop you.
So how do you know what you are going to get when you hire someone to build a website for you in an industry filled with more con artists than graphic artists? The problem is that when the website designer takes your money and runs there is little you can do.
Call the police and they will tell you it is a civil matter. Call an attorney and you'll be required to hand over a retainer of $2,000.00 or more just to explain what happened. Of course there is no assurance that you'll ever collect after you file a lawsuit.
So what happens when people lose their money and still need a website designer? They call it "experience" and a "lesson learned" and then some of them contact us and we get the job done.
The best Miami website designers will have a plan for website advertising. Without some idea about what to do once the website goes live your website sits there on a very big lonely Internet all by itself just waiting against great odds of being found. Is it really that difficult to get found in a search engine? Isn't that what search engines are for so that people can search and find your business? Sure search engines are made to help people find your website and the problem is that there are only about 10 results shown on the first page. Can you and all your competitors all fit on the first page of the search results? If the answer is "no" then it will be important to find a company that can show you proof that they know how to get a website to rank on the first page of results.
I Was Lost, But Now I'm Found - Search Engine Optimization
Don't blame us!
Some other website designers made her website and no matter what you searched for you'd never find her. She paid a third party big money each month to bring her leads. Had she not found us she would have been spending close to $2,000.00 per month to buy leads. This would have continued until the day she retired.
Then she found us and she doesn't buy leads anymore because she generates her own!
Go ahead and do a search for "Fort Lauderdale Dentist" and see if you find Dr. Natalia Benda of Pearl White Dentistry near the top of the page. You might also want to look for "Fort Lauderdale sedation dentist" and you'll still find her. Try searching for "Fort Lauderdale cosmetic dentist" and you will still find her. Since her office is located in Broward County you can also search for "Broward dental office" and you'll find her once again at the top of the list.
Are YOU lost and waiting to be found?
More Than Just a Pretty Face
You may have the most beautiful website in the world what is the point if nobody finds it?
We believe that our team approach method of website design works very well. Our clients like the results they get also. We get plenty of compliments about our work and although we appreciate the kind words, the thing that makes us really happy is when someone tells us they are making money as a result of the work that we have done for them.
The most important thing Rick Goldman accomplishes for our clients is that he builds websites with search engine optimization in mind. Rick says, "What good is it to have a beautiful website that nobody ever sees?" Rick has such a talent for this that he says, "You may find someone to build your site for a little less money but you'll pay for it the rest of your life when people can't find your website unless you give them the website address!" Our clients come from all over the United States and as far away as Indonesia and South America. Please read the comments below which were e-mailed to Rick from some clients.
Art: I like the way our website came out and I love the way that if you go to yahoo.com or google.com and search for "broward transmission repair" our site is at the very top of the list and we don't pay a penny extra for that.
Oscar Soto: I've always liked the way our website looked but now that you've added info which helps us to be found when people search for Fort Lauderdale non compete attorney and Jacksonville non compete attorney we are seeing the results of your magic already. We come up near the top of the list in Yahoo.com
Wendy Rosenthal: "Someone else made our website which we've had for a couple of years and we never got any leads. Now that you did some search engine optimization on our existing site we are getting calls and e-mails from our website. Last week someone in New Jersey found us on the Internet and booked four events with 1000 people at each."
Elaine Middelstaedt: "I just got a new client, a C.P.A. who is going to refer me to his clients. He told me that when he went to google.com and did a search for "pension administration" my web site came up in the number one position. He asked how I was able to get such good results in the search engines since nobody can ever find his site. Naturally I gave him your card. Thanks!"
Van Orcutt: "Thanks! I've only had the web site a couple of months and yesterday made a nice $3,000.00 sale to someone in Boca Raton. I asked how he heard about me and he said he went to google.com and searched for "boca raton telephone systems" and my site was near the top of the list. I tried it myself searching in yahoo.com for "broward telephone systems" and I'm up at the top. I thought I should have a web site just to look professional and never really expected much. I had no idea it would be a real money-maker. I'm thrilled!!!"
David Douenias: "Thanks, we've only had the web site 6 months and we've already gotten $15,000.00 in sales. We just got a big order from the School Board of New York."
David Douenias: "Thanks again, the people making the movie "2 Fast 2 Furious" called us up and told me that they saw our website and fell in love with it. They needed hats fast and, as guaranteed, they found out how fast and furious we are. Well after that first job, we already had major reorders with them and they referred us to another movie that is going to be shot again in South Florida. - "Bad Boys 2", the same thing, they need hats!"
Brian Cohen: Unfortunately someone else made my website long before I found your company. You couldn't find my website no matter what you searched for, not even when you searched by my name. Since you've fixed my website now people looking for a bankruptcy attorney find me when they search for Port St Lucie bankruptcy attorney or Fort Lauderdale bankruptcy attorney or West Palm Beach bankruptcy attorney.
Jeannette Chavez: "Thanks! One month after you made changes to my site we come up number one when we searched google.com for "junior clothes"."
Eli Ristine: "Thanks! For two years I never made a dime off my web site which some other company produced;however, just two months after you made those changes to my web site I've not only gotten new leads from prospective buyers but, I've also already had two closings from South American buyers."
Content Management System
Years ago when we started making websites (back in 1995) we made what we called Database Driven Websites. Today so many Miami website designers want to pretend that they invented something new by calling them Content Management Systems. Then to confuse the public even more they like to refer to the Content Management System website as a CMS. Call it what you will our Miami website designers have been making this type of website since 1995. In the video below you can see how Misha's Cupcakes of Miami is able to control all of the content in their website by using the back end or admin area of their CMS. With a Content Management System website you can add new pages, pictures, videos and change just about anything you want on your website. The specific function shown in the video below is adding a link to some other website on your website.
Content Management System Website Designers - CMS - aka Database Driven Website Programmers
When the website owner logs into the back end or admin area of a content management system or CMS website they can change just about anything they want. They can change the text on any page, add pictures, videos or add entire new sections and pages. The best part is that they don't need any programming or design experience at all; the website knows how to make everything look right. In this video the site owner wants to add a link to some other website.
