We are a DC Web Design Company and we have been building websites for over a decade. We serve Businesses and Organizations in Washington DC who expect more from their website. Our focus is in building websites that helps increase the value of your business. The objective of every website project is to generate revenue for your business even while you sleep. In that respect, we don’t just build websites. We build sales tools that help you close many times as possible — even at 3am at night.
DC Web Design Platforms
We are Open Source Developers and prefer to build websites using Open Source CMS (Content Management System) such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal and eCommerce platforms such as Magento. Below are the advantages of Open Source Platforms
- As a business owner, you don’t want to be tied into proprietary software. Using Open source means you are not taken prisoner by your Developer
- Software is mostly free or inexpensive. You are essentially paying for the Developers time in putting your website together
- You can modify and adapt every script, plugin, module to suit any business requirement. Something that is more difficult and expensive to do using closed software
WordPress Web Design
Because we develop websites using the many Open Source platforms, obviously, we have a favorite and that is WordPress. WordPress is easily our favorite platform, here are our reasons
- Wordpress for SEO Purposes — As Web developers with a focus on SEO, we find WordPress to be the most Search Engine Friendly CMS
- Stable and Secure
- Easily customizable
- Thousands of plugins
- Thousands of designs
- Mobile Reponsive
Web Design with Technical SEO
Whenever we build a website, we always integrate Technical SEO aspects to it so that it ranks highly and above your Online Competitors. One of our success factors is looking through the SERP (Search Engine Results Page) and seeing your ranking increase, day after day. No other DC Web Design Company integrates Technical SEO in a basic website package. Technical SEO helps search engines crawl your website and index each page and categorize them properly so they rank well for keyword searches. Check out our Simply Better Website package. It’s the only Basic web package that integrates Technical SEO without additional costs. Best value, ever!

After the paper work has been done and the deposit paid, we will sit down with you to plot out your website menu. This needs your input because you know your services better than us.
Design Draft and Approval
Prior to us building a website, we provide the web design drafts. Once the elements within the site have been approved, we will start the build. Doing the design drafts usually takes anywhere between 1 to 4 weeks depending on the elements involved. We always try to deliver before deadlines and will advice if we are not able
Once all design drafts have been approved, we will start the build. We will provide you with a Dev site URL and you can follow along as you wish. We are also agile developers so if you see an element that you don’t like, you can also advise and we can change it on the spot. Pls bear in mind that changes, depending on your contract have a cost associated with it.
Dev Site Access
We will provide you with a development site access that is not public. Only you or your designate can follow the web development process live
Approval of Dev Site
Once we have completed integrating the website, we will ask for your approval. Once approved we can move forward in launching the new website.
This normally takes us about 6 to 8 weeks depending on the complexity of the web design and functional specs. Once you have approved everything, we will enable the website to be live.
One of the things we work on is after the website has launched is page speed. This is important for very competitive online industries. The faster your website, the higher your ranking as speed is now a ranking factor.
This is something that can only be done once the website is live. We ensure that it shows up properly for all browsers, all operating systems and all mobile versions as well.
