Web Design

The most innovative designers consciously reject the standard option box and cultivate an appetite for thinking wrong.

• At Glassnost we believe good Web Site design starts with a few very important elements. What purpose will the Web Site serve? Who will be visiting your Web Site? How will the Web Site look? Do you need a data driven website? How well will your Web Site rank on the major search engines? These are all questions we discuss before a finger ever touches the keyboard.

. We will help you figure out whom your message is intended for and define your target audience. Should you choose our "Search Engine Positioning package", our Web Site designers will work very closely with our Search Engine Positioning Specialists during every phase of the Graphic Design and Web Site development.

• In the online world, many users may skip text or never even read it as they navigate the web. Glassnost provides focused copy to your market with an effective message. This process insures that your web site will be designed to look good and is properly coded to gain high rankings in the Major Search Engines and Directories.

• Depending on your target market, we will design a web site that clearly conveys your message. Our skilled web designers and experienced programmers work closely to author HTML that is tested across the most popular browsers and is fully compatible with the latest standards. Quality HTML provides a robust foundation, which makes our clients information available to the widest possible audience without embarrassing error messages, broken links or non-function pages.

• A great looking Web Site is very important to your online success. Potential customers finding your web site over other companies in the Search Engines can make or break your company. Just by having your web site found on the 1st page of search results in Yahoo and MSN alone can bring you an incredible amount of visitors to view your products or services on a daily basis. The more people who visit your web site the more profits that your company will see every month.

• Glassnost can provide fully integrated web/database solutions for a completely dynamic experience as well. Using ASP, ASP.NET, .NET, JSP, PHP, ColdFusion, XML and other languages, we can develop data-driven websites that change with your business. Start off small or big, all have the capacity to grow with your business.

• If you do not already have a domain name we can setup, 'YOUR-NAME.COM' at no extra charge. However, the registration fees will apply and will be billed separately. We also offer Hosting at competitive rates.

• How does all this work? Once you have agreed on a direction that bests suites your needs and budget, we get busy! If you have chosen our "Search Engine Positioning package", we research your target audience, research key words, and only after all the research is complete, we decide on a concept and theme. At this point the design phase begins, we design the layout; you proof it by viewing the layout on the Internet or in person. If you choose not to take advantage of the " Search Engine Positioning package ", there is no guarantee on search engine placement. We will still do our best on the development of your Web Site. Once all the design and development of your Web Site is complete, we carefully go through the entire Web Site to insure all the links work properly and there are no missing images. The website will only "go live" after yours and our final approval.
