Custom website design and re-design

We also offer a variety of basic website creation services. Even if your website doesn’t contain a blog, we can design it for you. Now more than ever, the internet is the first place people search when when they need information about a product, a company, an individual, or a service. We will design your website so that when that person looks for you, he or she will not only find you, but will instantly be impressed with the professional style of your website. This first impression will always translate into a good impression of your company.

If there are existing web sites that you like, or you have some ideas of your own about what your site should look like, or have ideas that you don’t quite know how to implement, or you would like “something completely different,” we encourage you to let us know. Your input is critical to getting the design project started on the right foot.

The style of your site is usually inspired by an image or a logo that you may already have. We also offer a graphic design service, which can help you find a style and design that suits you.

If you already have a web site and want a re-design or enhancements, we are glad to do that as well.

Blog design and creation
Blogging is fast becoming one of the most effective ways for a business to market its products, increase its web-based sales, and grow its presence on the internet. Blogging is also a great way for individuals to publish their ideas and even earn a consistent stream advertising revenue. The success of your blog largely depends on how well your blog stands apart from the millions of other blogs on the internet. Coram Design will create your blog using the incredibly powerful Wordpress platform. Your blog will not look like those on blogspot.com or typepad.com. Instead, it will look completely peerless. We will integrate a unique appearance to match your current business logo and style or satisfy your personal taste. Depending on your needs, we can design your blog to function with a multitude of complex features or with the simple purpose of getting your words out into the world. No matter what the project, we are committed to getting you up and writing as quickly as possible, while saving you the trouble and time it takes to design, set up, and code your blog.
Domain name registration: your address on the web
A domain name like “www.mydomain.com” is a way to claim a unique identity on the web. The domain name is what visitors might type into their browsers to visit your site. It is what you might have printed on business cards and other publicity tools. The domain name is actually a very important component of your website. We can advise you in deciding on a good domain. If you don’t already have one, we can help you acquire a domain name (or several). Registrars typically charge from about $8 to $35 annually per domain name.
Hosting: where your site lives
All web sites have to live on a computer called a web server owned by a web hosting company located who-knows-where in the physical world. We use and recommend bluehost.com for all of your hosting needs. Their prices are reasonable and their features are useful. We can help you set up an arrangement with Bluehost or, if you already have another hosting company, we can set up your website with your current host.
Email setup
If you have a domain name and a web site at “www.mydomain.com,” you will probably want an email address like “me@mydomain.com.” Or perhaps you need several email addresses using your domain for your friends or employees or departments. We can help you make this happen.
Search Engine Optimization: put your site out there
The most important considerations for ranking well on search engines are the structure of your site and the text you choose to display on your web page. Thoughtful design and editing are the most cost-effective method of getting noticed by search engines. Interconnectedness with other relevant sites is also an important factor. We will work with you to make sure we get these basics right. We believe, in most cases, this is all that is needed, but if you wish to explore more aggressive web publicity strategies such as Google pay-per-click advertising, we will advise you.
Editing services
Need help getting your ideas accurately and effectively into engaging prose? We offer content or copy editing services, too. Believe it or not, every word choice you make is not just important for communicating with your readers once you have gotten them, it can have a huge impact on getting readers in the first place. This is because knowing what words to use where is essential to getting the attention of search engines and through them, of course, that of your intended audience.
Tracking visitors
Once you get your website up and running, you are going to want to see how many people have visited your site. We can show you how to track this data based on region of the world or period of time. We can also track which pages and blog posts are getting the most hits or which websites are sending you the most traffic. This data is not only interesting, but it can also help us tweak your site to get the most out of your visitors.
Advertising
There are many different ways to earn advertising revenue from your website or blog. We can advise you on these different programs.
Maintenance: tending your site

By the way, search engines like it when your site changes often. (This is why blogs get special attention from them.) Depending on your needs and willingness to get involved, we can set up your site so you can make a lot of the basic textual changes yourself, thus saving yourself money.

Or, if you prefer, we can work out a monthly or quarterly maintenance arrangement so that your site remains up to date and running smoothly.

Consulting
Lastly, we offer a consulting service if you or your company would like advice on promoting your blog or website, gaining readership, or on any other related issues.
