Website Development and Web Design

Providing Website Design and Development Services from Yakima

Website design and web development in Yakima WAWhether you are a newcomer to the web and want to develop your first website or need to upgrade an old site - our professional web site developer can assist you with this challenge. Working closely with clients, we develop websites and conduct internet-based promotions to grow their business through the Internet and attract new customers from target markets.

Our development principles are utilized in all web development projects including:

Start-from-Scratch Sites

If you've never developed a site for your company or organization before, we'll work closely with your staff to build a professional website to promote your company's products and services.

Custom Web Design - we utilize existing promotional materials and corporate identity guidelines to ensure the appropriate corporate/organizational image is maintained in the website design. If you have not yet developed any printed materials for your company or organization, our design professionals will design your web presence from scratch and help build your company image.

Acknowledging that there are different tastes in design, our designers create two custom design concepts for you to choose from based on your design guidelines.

It has been a pleasure working with Danielle Surkatty of Yakindo Web Designs.  She's been an instrumental part of our team working with the White Pass Scenic Byway website for years now.  Not only does Danielle provide great design ideas, she's accurate, quick, and extremely responsive. Time after time she has gone above and beyond fostering a wonderful working relationship. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

Planning Website Site StructureContent - We can build on existing written materials which detail the products and/or services of your company or organization and work with you to develop content which focuses on your customers' information needs. Or, we can work with you to develop new content for your site.

Content is king on the Internet - ensuring the success of your site by providing detailed information about your products and services. A good website will also improve productivity by providing answers 24/7 to your potential customers' questions through your website.

Content Management Systems - Want to make the changes to the content yourself after the launch of the site? We use WordPress as our preferred Content Management System due to its ease of use, open source environment, the rich resource of developers, and a wide variety of excellent plug-ins. We conduct in-person post launch training and provide clients with a training manual for their website.

We often hear from new clients that they aren't pleased with the results of their 'first generation website'. Perhaps it was developed by your nephew or a self-taught employee, or by an inexperienced web developer at the beginning of their career.

For whatever reason, the website has not brought you the results you had hoped for. Our developers will conduct a review of your existing site and work with you to develop a plan for improving your site to reach your goals.

In a redesign of an existing website the development work focuses on improvements to navigation, webdesign, content, download speed, and SEO factors. In some cases, it's easier just to start from scratch and re-develop the site. This is especially true now with the advent of responsive design and it's ability to render your website on smart phones and tablets!

 

Convert your website to Responsive Design to be mobile-friendlyConvert to Responsive Design

As more and more people access the internet from smart phones and tablets, the need to convert an existing website to responsive design grows! Google's algorithms have changed in recent years to give more weight to those sites which are "mobile friendly" and display responsively on smart phones and tablets ... giving those companies better search engine results.

Is it time for you to convert your site to responsive design? Step 1 is to check your Google Analytics to see how many of your current website visitors are accessing the site from their phone or tablet. Those stats will help you make the decision.

Our Website Development Philosophy - Ensuring Success for our Clients!

Building blocks to create a successful website for clients

Each web developer has preferred layout styles and design tendencies. Yakindo does too! The principles that guide our web development projects are:

  • Content is King on the internet! If your site is short on information, it will not rank well on search engines. We help clients ensure their website provides all the information visitors are looking for ... and more.

  • People don't come to websites just to look at the design. They come seeking information. Design provides an essential backdrop to the content and it should reflect the corporate image of the company and provide a professional appearance. Research shows that a badly designed site reduces the credibility of your company and a well-designed site adds credibility to your company image.

  • Techno garbage is exactly that! Animated gifs, flash, and complicated technical wonders of the internet frustrate visitors to websites as they take can take forever to load, won't work well across various devices and browsers, and crash software/computers when the scripting hasn't been fully tested. We use the KISS principle in web development ... simple and effective and focused on the goal ... showing up well on the search engines so we can get visitors to your site and providing them with the information they seek.

  • High accessibility and usability are keywords in W3C compliance, the king of internet standards. What does this mean to clients? Our sites work across platforms, through several versions of browsers and provide a user-friendly experience to visitors to the website, with special accessibility considerations for the visually impaired and blind.

  • Responsive design is the current design standard, ensuring your website shows up well on smart phones and tablets, as well as on desktop computers. We will build out your site in mobile-friendly, responsive design to maximize the reach of your site!

  • And most important of all, we do not utilize design principles which hamper search engine placement in any way. If visitors can't find your website on the search engines, you'll be losing a major segment of your potential market. Our developers keep abreast of changes in the algorithms of the major search engines to ensure high placement for your site.

  • You'll never see a Yakindo logo/link on sites we've developed as your website isn't our ad space! Word of mouth and satisfied customers bring us business on a continual basis, without us co-opting your website for a free advertisement for our company.

  • We endeavor to provide all customers with 24-48 hour turnaround on post-launch site maintenance work submitted to us. We've heard too many stories from clients of unreturned phone calls and weeks long delays in getting changes made by their previous website developers. All clients deal direct with the owner of the company, so we can ensure a quick and accurate turnaround on website maintenance.

  • We give you a choice - custom design or pre-developed templates! Many developers have a few standard pre-developed templates that become the base for all the websites they develop for clients. They change colors or background textures and the design work is complete. We can custom design a website for clients, to match your corporate branding and personal preferences. Or, we can work with the pre-developed template of your choice to reduce costs.

 

Our website development philosophy is focused on developing the most effective website possible for clients ... to grow their business and provide comprehensive information to customers.

We can not tell you how much we appreciate your time, and how responsive you have been!
Terri, Government official
