Website Design

Effective website design can be the difference between gaining and losing a customer. Your website is more than an online shop or your address and phone number. It’s a hub of information for your customers. They learn who you are, what you do, and why they should be spending their hard-earned money on your products or services.

In today’s technology-driven word, having a website is a must. Looking for a custom ecommerce site with thousands of products? Or maybe just a simple site with a few pages to explain your services? With your customers in mind, we will design and deliver exactly what you need.

In-house Web Designers

Some websites are designed like this: One web developer has to talk to another developer (in a different time zone) who has to talk to a designer who needs to get back with the owner. We say, why make web design more complicated than it needs to be? Your custom website is built in-house by our Cincinnati-based web design team. Our designs fast, easy to manage, and give you an effective way to connect with your customers online.

Our Website Design Process

When it comes to web design, our process is straightforward and focuses on the client’s needs. Our process has three phases that target various parts of the website design process, resulting in a site that does exactly what you need.

Cincinnati Web Design


The Discovery phase of our web design process focuses on what you want. Our team will meet with you to discuss your needs when it comes to your website’s functionality. We will also audit your competitor’s sites and strategically push your competitive advantage.

Internally, we take this time to familiarize ourselves with your brand and your industry. We will research your competition and look at your primary, secondary and tertiary markets.

What are the industry giants in your field doing that is working for them? What are the most important services you want to highlight? Are there any technical specifications your website needs to have in order to function the way you want it to?

At the end of the Discovery phase, we return to you with a sitemap and a plan to get your website started. Once any changes are made, we move on to the second phase.

During the Design phase, we ask ourselves the question, “how do we convert a lead into a customer?” We call this the Roadmap to Conversions. While this name may sound lofty, it’s really just the name we give to the process of ensuring leads on your website convert into paying customers.

The goal of any website design is to lead the user to the information they’re seeking as efficiently as possible, while also incorporating the things you want and need on your site. Our web designers start with the features you need and the information that’s most important to you.

For example, if the goal is to increase the number of phone calls your business gets, we will make sure the potential customer can easily see the phone number and message it throughout the website.

We take the information you provide us and incorporate it into a design that emphasizes your brand’s voice and personality. By following your brand guidelines, we incorporate all the features you want into a beautiful, detail-oriented design.

Custom Cincinnati Web Design


The final phase, Development, is all about making sure your website is optimized for use. This is where we look at usability, speed, and the overall flow of your site.

We optimize images for your website’s database. We also ensure the mobile and tablet versions are optimized (after all, mobile and tablet traffic is at an all-time high).

The Development phase also includes search engine optimization efforts. Our web design team will also utilize the proper HTML semantics for the best SEO results (i.e., ensuring all headers are tagged correctly). We will also edit (or write) your copy for the best results.
