Content development and web design
I often hear business people complain about how difficult and expensive it is to work with web design companies. What’s the problem? Let me give you an example from my own experience.
I approached a local web company with a design opportunity. I visited their lushly-appointed and ultra-hip downtown office space and was greeted by a receptionist who called my account manager … who was an intermediary between me and an artistic director. Then, the artistic director assigned a creative manager to my account to actually do the work.
Do we need all three management layers to create a website? Do we need high-rent offices and walls of plasma screens? Will the person actually doing my work understand my business enough to translate my brand promise to web design? No, no, no!
Quality web development does not have to be difficult and expensive. At Schaefer Marketing Solutions, we can help you envision an appropriate site that will represent your business and work.
1) We speak your language, not geek
2) We also speak geek … which is quite helpful when building a website!
3) We will hold your hand through the strategy and content-development phases that most web companies ignore.
4) We work with a strategic partner who is among the best in their field – and they have little or no overhead so we can pass the savings on to you. Our web development and design services are typically half the cost of a big-agency quote.
