It’s a smart business decision to hire Faith in Marketing to develop your web solutions. With Faith in Marketing, you are able to get all of the following at a much better overall value.
Personalized Consultation — Whether we meet on the phone or in person, we take the time to clearly understand your needs, wants and your ideas. We will talk about what has worked for you in the past, and what hasn’t turned out so well. We will discuss your goals, what makes your business unique, and your immediate competitors. The entire conversation is confidential. While offsite, we will create short-term and long-term goals, and a strategy to get there.
Custom Design — With each new website, we start with a blank screen. Then, using the latest and greatest graphics programs, our Art Director & Designers go to work, incorporating the perfect elements derived from our Consultation.
Review & Approval — We present our design to you, either by email or in person. We listen closely to your feedback, and any changes you might suggest. After adjustments, we accept your approval before moving into the Programming phase.
Programming — To make your website function on a variety of devices and operating systems, we transform the approved artwork into a combination of the most popular programming languages and styles.
Made in the USA — For the record, all of our design and programming work is performed in the United States of America. And 95% of it is performed in our offices. On occasion we work with professional strategic partners.
Social Media Built-In — When appropriate, we build your social media feeds directly into your website, allowing visitors to interact without having to leave your site, and keeping content fresh.
Social Media Toolbar — With your excitement, we build a convenient social media toolbar into every page of your new website, allowing visitors to update, tweet, or post your web site’s pages to their large networks of friends and colleagues.
Blog Posts and News Articles — Your new web site will include an entire section dedicated to your company’s breaking news, special offers, industry trends, your great ideas, and even your opinions. Articles and blogs help to keep your site fresh. Plus, the search engines LOVE to visit your site to index your latest articles, which in turn can lead to increased visitors.
Royalty Free Professional Images — We design websites and build web pages using fantastic photos and artwork chosen from a giant online library. These professional images look great and help to tell your story. Plus, they are usually free!
Photography — When the perfect photo isn’t already out there, we’ll shoot it ourselves using professional Nikon equipment in ultra high-resolution.
Video — When included in your package, we shoot Full 1080P HD video with broadcast quality sound. Then we edit your video with seamless transitions, a professionally-recorded in-house voiceover, and selected music beds that sound great! Plus, we post your video on YouTube for an even larger worldwide audience. Your videos can be included on your website, in social media, mass media, and on lobby screens in your facility.
YouTube Videos, Picasa Slideshows, Google Maps — We will embed high-quality assets to make your site inviting, interactive, and rich with multi-media experiences.
eCommerce — Whether you want a professional storefront, the ability to sell goods or event tickets, or a simple solution to sell a few items with PayPal, we’ve got you covered.
SEO Search Engine Optimization — Our website pages are automatically optimized for the most popular search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Your pages include the most appropriate content. Your page titles are build to be accurate. The URL (web address) of each page will include the most applicable keywords. And all of the pages will be linked together so the search engines can quickly find them. Finally, we ask the best search engines to index your new website and pages… and to do it on a very regular basis!
1000 Pages — Gone are the days of five-page packages! Faith in Marketing builds websites with virtually unlimited pages! Even though you’ll probably never need 1000 pages, we give you the space to make it happen.
Simple Self Editing — No experience necessary! If you can send an e-mail, you can make a web page. Our web page editor allows you to type, insert pictures, indent, add bullet lists, numbered lists, change font size, color, etc. It’s like using any popular Word Processor. When you’re done typing, click one button, and it’s live on the internet… or program it to be automatically released on the future date of your choice!
Training — We will meet with you in person, on the web, or on a conference call for a personalized training session. We will show you and your key staff members how to log into your website from any computer in the world. Then we will show you how easy it is to add a page, edit a page, create a new article, update select images, and even change around your main navigation! Plus, we will help you set up different accounts for different staff members with different website credentials! This way, you and a trusted associate are in full control, while other staff are allowed to perform only certain low-level functions.
Mobile Web — We can design your website to work across a wide variety of popular computers, tablets, and phones. While there are literally thousands of various screen sizes out there, most of our sites are built to automatically adjust themselves, showing the most important information to your visitors.
Hosting & Email — We host many of our clients’ websites on our partnered server with 99.9% uptime. We also provide email services for a complete package, sometimes referring email to Google for squeaky clean spam removal. Let us help you stop the spam dead.
E-Newsletters — We can build tools into your site that will let visitors quickly and easily sign up for your guestbook or email newsletter list. These tools are great for capturing prospects’ contact information, or to simply make it easy for your existing customer base to stay in touch. We recommend strategic partners to fulfill newsletter services. Now you can see EXACTLY who opened your emails, and what they clicked on!
Visitor Reports — Every website we build includes critical software that automatically collects visitor data from all around the globe. The data goes into weekly or monthly reports that we send to your email box as a PDF file. Each report tells you how many visits you received, where they came from, where those visitors live, what pages they looked at, which pages are the most popular, and if they were on a computer or mobile device. Using this data you can quickly adjust your site’s navigation to more closely match visitor patterns, or feature the pages that seem to be all the rage this week.
One Point of Contact — There’s no need to run all over town (or the web) seeking dozens of providers for your website needs. We take care of it all from A to Z, which means you only need one point of contact. We go by our first names, and you can reach us almost anytime by phone, email or text. We are super easy to reach, and super fast getting back to you.
More than the Web — Speaking of having just one contact, many companies rely on Faith in Marketing for all of their other marketing services. To keep your brand and image consistent, we design AND print matching business cards, post cards, brochures, booklets, banners, letterhead, envelopes, folders, and so much more. We also help you get up to speed on social media like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. And we’re always available to talk, to help you stay on track to exceed your business goals.
Reviews & Testimonials — Last but not least, we will ask for your honest opinion about what it’s like to work withFaith in Marketing. If something wasn’t right, we will do our best to fix it immediately. And when it is right, we will happy publish your testimonial for others to see.
