We Create Powerful Small Business Websites

Creating websites that drive business results is tough work. Websites are incredibly complicated, and most businesses need much more than just web design.

Our Approach

We take all the necessary components of a successful website project, like SEO, copywriting, and web design and development, and bundle them all into one all-inclusive service.  We’re here to help Eastern Oregon businesses and nonprofits develop more interest in their organization, get more leads, more sales, and serve their existing customers with excellence.

Our Methods

We accomplish this with a superior approach to web design that starts with creating content first, and designing the site second.  We back this up by providing custom solutions for your ongoing digital marketing campaigns, ensuring you get results from your website and online marketing efforts.

We Need to Talk About Your Strategy

Web design isn’t a kindergarten game: there’s no gold star for participation.

In web design, there are specific things that perform and others that don’t.

And it’s very possible that you (yes you!) have been spinning your wheels, trying to navigate the world of web design and online marketing, but have yet to get any traction because you don’t know where to start, where to invest the majority of your time, or you can’t get your head around all the technology involved.

If you’re a small business owner, you can’t just copy what everyone else is doing.  One-size-fits-all templates that many design companies offer don’t take into consideration the individual needs and characteristics of you and your business. Just because something appears to work for someone else, doesn’t mean it’s going to work for you.

In other words, you need a custom strategy that’s tailor-fit to your unique organization.

Traffic

Users need to get to your website from somewhere, whether that be from search engines, social media, email, or some sort of mobile app. A nice website with no traffic is akin to putting a hotel on a beautiful but deserted island, with no thought given to how someone might get there.

Typically, our intuition is deeply flawed about how website visitors get to our site.  

For example, with the increase in mobile device usage, local search engine optimization has become the most important factor for small businesses. This is why it’s often more important for local businesses to build out their Google My Business profile than their social media presence.

 

Content

Content refers to the messaging and information found on your site.  Although content is most frequently thought of as text, your message could also take the form of images, audio, or video.

A pretty website with poor content is like slapping lipstick on a pig.  Do you have a unique value proposition, include the benefits of your offering in your copy, cover your primary features, answer objections, and include a call-to-action?  If you haven’t done that, or your last web designer left you without one of these elements, you have something less than a website.

Conversion

Doing business online is analogous to dating.  What do you think your success rate would be if your dating method was to walk up to a stranger and ask “will you marry me?”  Probably not very high!  

Your web presence is a similar situation.  Your visitors need to get to know you first.  If you’ve properly educated them with your content, the conversion process is easy.  After educating your users, it’s important to guide them to take the next step. Don’t leave them hanging, wondering if they’re supposed to call you, email you, and then burying your contact information.  Make your call-to-action clear and obvious.

How you can avoid other’s mistakes and get a killer website:

A website is one of the most fundamental and cost effective marketing tools available to increase your exposure and provide a better experience for your clients.  But you have to do it right. We believe our beautifully-designed websites are only a means to an end –  they are not the end in themselves.

Hi, I’m Matt. I’m a professional athlete turned professional copywriter and digital marketer. While I love being outdoors, I also love ideas and how ideas influence our lives.  That’s why I love helping businesses communicate their message to their audience in a clear, compelling, and visually impressive way. I have two primary goals: (1) make sure your site not only looks good, but also gets the exposure, traffic, and engagement that you want, and (2) help grow the Eastern Oregon Economy by implementing sound digital marketing principles.

Hi, I’m Will. I’m an Eastern Oregon University graduate with degrees in Film Production, Creative Writing, and Literature, and I love to create. Some of my favorite things to create are poems, stories, photos, videos, and even fictional worlds. My passion is helping people to realize their projects in the fields of video, photo, and writing. There’s little I enjoy more than sitting down with people to help them to (1) conceptualize their project, image or strategy and (2) actualize it with the highest degrees of quality, professionalism and fun that are possible in any given situation.

I’m a French speaker, art lover and outdoor enthusiast. I’m also a California transplant (please don’t hold it against me) who relocated to La Grande to be with my husband, Matt.  My goals are to (1) create beautiful visual assets that showcase your unique brand and (2) communicate the value of your product or service in a way that informs and attracts customers. Whether it’s copy for your website, blog, email campaign or social media presence, I love and excel at writing.

“When I was evaluating different web design companies I could tell that what Matt was offering was a much more complete package in terms of writing the content, doing SEO, and building the site.  Sure, I could have had someone take my images and my copy and slap them together, but I knew the additional level of service that Matt offered would have a dramatic impact on the performance of my site.  

And you know what?  I was right!  With my new website and digital marketing campaign, I was able to book $25,000 in new dog training clients within 3 months of the website being launched.”
