Our philosophy: We choose ease!

 

In other words, why reinvent the wheel simply for the sake of reinventing it?!?

  For example, our websites are created in WordPress. Why? Because they are stable, trustworthy and give us web designer types lots of flexibility. Additionally, there are literally thousands of beautiful website themes out there for you to choose from! This will save you time, money and forehead wrinkles!   Did you know website theme designers spend hours and hours designing themes hoping people like you will pick their lovingly made creation? They don’t cost very much-not in comparison to what you would be charged if you wanted to customize your website from the bottom up. So, we like to choose existing, professional themes and make changes to those. This gets your site up faster, with less money, creating a ROI quicker and, spreads the wealth.  

7 Reasons Why You Want a Professional Web Developer on Your Team:

  1. We will build your website to be Responsive. This means that your website will look fantastic on your viewer’s computer, tablet AND mobile device. This is a BIG deal nowadays! 42% of people now use their mobile and tablet devices to get on the Internet. In 2009, this number was almost 0%. Oh, and as you can see from the graph below, desktop usage is going down as mobile and tablet usage increase. Building Responsive websites are now a must if you want your website to attract visitors.

  2. Professional web developers are in the know. In 2015, Google began penalizing websites for not being mobile-friendly. This means that they will not rank you as high as they do your competitors that do have a responsive and mobile-friendly device.  

3. One last Google trick. In early 2017, they began adding warning icons to websites that are not secure. i.e. HTTPS versus HTTP. These are all sites-not just ecommerce or government. See the example below from this site before we converted over. Converting your website to HTTPS will show the public their safety is very important to your company!

  4. We will also make sure Google tells the public you exist. Do you have a brick and mortar location and want customers to find you? Got you covered! Do you want an ecommerce store to enhance your B&M? Got you covered there too!  

5. We have a graphic designer standing by that will build an entire brand kit for your company, and any other images you want on your site!  

6. We have nationally recognized experts we work with to ensure the quickest return on investment for you. I Amy, Lead Consultant (learn more about me here), hold both a B.S. and M.S. in Information Systems so understand computers, understand websites and more importantly, understand business.  

7. A professionally built website will help your business to be found when prospective customers search for your product or service. 81% of shoppers go online first and research before buying anything. Your business and it’s modern, mobile friendly website could be the one that attracts them!

SERVICES

Website Design

We build all of our websites in WordPress as it is one of the easiest website creation tools on the market and is incredibly powerful. It is very user-friendly and you, the client, will be able to make changes to the content easily and quickly anytime you wish without having to call your web designer for every little change. Since we ascribe to the KISS method at eHemisphere, we utilize pre-built Professional Themes in all of our websites.

Did you know website theme designers spend hours and hours designing themes hoping people like you will pick their lovingly made creation? They don’t cost very much-not in comparison to what you would be charged if you wanted your own theme. So, we like to choose existing themes and make small changes to those. This gets your site up faster, with less money, creating a ROI quicker and, spreads the wealth!

Your site will be Responsive which means it can be easily viewed from a tablet or mobile device.

We will also create a Blog page for you as blogging will move you up the ranks of Google searches faster than any other method. We can discuss how you will get blogs for your website.

You will also receive two hours of in-person training and 4 months of phone support on the WordPress dashboard so you are not reliant on us or anyone else to make small changes to your site.

eCommerce Design

We will create for you an eCommerce website utilizing a hosted shopping cart such as BigCommerce or 3DCart. These companies will allow you to do everything a WordPress website will do plus take credit cards via the website.

The hosted shopping cart companies also utilize Professional Themes. This will give you ROI quicker as your website will be finished earlier-and you will know in advance what your website will look like.

The eCommerce hosting accounts charge a small monthly fee between $9.95/mo. and $30/mo. Due to the ever-present danger of website hacking and fraud, if you decide to take credit cards via your website, we highly recommend this route. Hosted shopping carts take care of all the security for you. They automatically update their servers and software in the background – you don’t even know it is going on. PCI compliance is huge with credit card processing companies now and the only sites that are truly secure are those on hosted platforms where they focus so strongly on security.

The site will be Responsive which means it too can be easily viewed from a mobile device.

You will also receive two hours of group in-person training and 4 months of phone support on the shopping cart dashboard so you are not reliant on me or anyone else to make small changes to your site.

ABOUT US

What do you work on that engrosses you so much that you forgot about the meeting at 1:00 and feel refreshed after the work is finished? I, Amy, enter the flow state when I am a) analyzing an Excel data dump b) programming a website or c) gardening!

I might enter flow too when I am sitting on the beach here in the Florida Panhandle watching the waves roll in and out. But that probably doesn’t count does it?

I hold both a Bachelors and Masters in Information Systems from Arizona State University.  My career has been varied and fun. From programming Cobol during Y2k, to managing IT departments for major corporations to analyzing statistics at Florida International University to freelancing, I have experience in multiple industries and in multiple roles. This benefits my clients as I can bring that broad experience to the table and offer it up. Return on Investment is always first and foremost on my mind. Learn more about me here on LinkedIn. 

My philosophy when searching for a website to trust with my money:

– Is the website up to date? i.e. Does the theme look dated?

– Are there any major spelling errors? This tells me they did not take the time to edit. Also, haven’t you seen those phony emails from some far off person asking you to send money to their country and the spelling is completely atrocius? (HAHA! Get it?!?)

– Do they use SSL for processing payments?

– Do I recognize the brands of the items on the site?

– Is there a phone number so I can call in case I have a question?

– Is shipping free or below $5.00?

– Feel free to call or email with any questions!
