Website Design and Development
You show up for work every day. Does your website? Your website represents a considerable investment of time and money. Are you getting a return on that investment? Let’s talk about how your website is performing…
- Does it bring you more business?
- Does it provide a great user experience?
- Does it effectively present your message, your talents and your products to the world?
Most people think that designing a website is all about making a site that looks nice; making it pretty. But that’s only part of the story. Your website should be designed to work for you!

Designing an effective website is an ongoing process. It begins with interviews, conversations, defining your goals and the feasibility of creating a website that fulfills those needs.
Dependable Web Services listens!

- Together we will define the scope of your website to meet your needs and stay within your budget!
- Together we will create a great user experience. If users come to your website and have a frustrating experience, they’re leaving early and not coming back.
There are three foundations upon which great websites are built:
- How do you zero in on the message you want to send to the user about yourself, your business or your service?
- What impact does your site have on the user?
- Do they easily find what they’re looking for?
- Are questions answered? We know that today’s web user wants speed and instant gratification. A guy named Steve Krug wrote a book about design and web design in particular entitled Don’t Make Me Think, which pretty much sums it up for today’s web user. You have a very small window of opportunity to engage users and keep them on your site.
Behavior… Often neglected in the construction of a website, this is a crucial step in web development.. Let’s say you provide a great user experience. Let’s also assume you got your message across. Now what? With your guidance we’ll direct the user to…
- Call you
- Sign up for a newsletter
- Subscribe to your blog
- Get a quote
- Fill out the contact form
Your site should easily and intuitively provide one or more calls to action that could translate into a new customer or client for you!
