Custom Website Design

We love getting creative and helping you come up with a custom look. We do this by letting you choose:

 

Content

This includes the number of pages and menu. There is no limit to the number of pages you can use. You can also choose from drop-down menus located at the top of each page, sidebar menus located on the left or right side of each page, or a combination of both.

 

Background picture and color

Colour plays a very important role in whether visitors feel good about your website or not. Whenever we see a colour, a message is send by our eyes to a specific region in our brain causing the release of hormones that bring changes in our mood and emotion and hence our behaviour. This proves that colour can have profound effects on emotion resulting in negative / positive feelings.

It only takes about 30 seconds for a visitor on your website to form a judgement / opinion. In addition to that, up to 90% of such interactions are decided by the colours alone. So, it is evident that colours play a vital role in website design, leaving your users with a strong 1st impression.

 

Photo gallery and slide show

Your Photo Gallery will provide you with the ability to upload unlimited photographs and divide them into an unlimited number of galleries.

A Rotating Slideshow allows you to display graphics and images on the home page or photo gallery of your website in an animated rotation. The slideshow can take many different forms and will be tailored to match the overall style of your site.

 

Callendar of events

Your Calendar of Events will provide you with an interactive tool to communicate important dates to your visitors such as upcoming events, special hours of operation, service times, and more. All your events will have the ability to accept registrations. For example, you may want to post an upcoming seminar on your calendar but you need people to RSVP. Your Calendar of Events will provide that functionality for you. (These are simple registrations that collect names and email addresses only and do not provide a method of payment.)

 

Blog

Blogging is an essential part of communicating through the internet. With Blogging, your staff and/or volunteers will be able to post articles, journal entries, or any other text-based information typically found in a blog.

 

Interactive forms

A Contact Form is used to give your visitors a method of sending you an email through your website. A visitor will be required to enter their name, e-mail, subject, and message before sending you a message. The Contact Form can have several categories for the visitor to choose from to make sure the right staff member or volunteer receives the message.

 

Directions and map

It is important to tell your visitors where you are and how to find you. A link to Google Maps and Street View will accomplish that.

 

Forums

Forums are designed to give you two-way communication through your website. They allow your visitors to have online discussions with each other or with your staff/volunteers about programs, issues, or any other topic you allow. A guestbook or bulletin board is a good example. We highly recommend that you have someone dedicated to monitoring your forums to prevent unwanted information from being posted.

 

Newsletter

Communication is essential to today's churches, non-profits, and small businesses. Your congregation and clients need (and want) to know what you're up to. And with today's technology, you have an amazing audience just a mouse-click away. Newsletters have become a standard in today's internet-driven community.

 

Staff directory

Your Staff Directory can contain photos and information about each staff member. This typically includes name, title, bio, and contact information.

 

WYSIWYG editor

Our CMS tools use a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. This allows you to add styling to your text without any coding knowledge such as bold, underline, italic, bullets, etc.

 

Responsive design

Our sites are built with the latest responsive design techniques insuring they are easily accessible on all types of devices.
