Pacific Northwest Web Works offers complete website design from the ground up. Even if you already have a site and just want the site updated to a new look, we can handle any web design needs. A new website or design update on your old one can give your business a completely new image and help achieve your goals.
Alex & Ashley can build you any kind of site, from a simple blog to full fledged shopping cart & order processing. Using WordPress and PHP/HTML we can develop any feature you may need. We can also add functionality such as booking systems for Hotels, Campgrounds, Charter services, etc. Calendars, and even employee only sections can also be added to the new site. All of our websites are based on responsive design and are fully mobile ready.
If you’re not sure exactly what you need, let’s sit down together and discuss your goals. We can help guide you through the multitude of technologies out there to accomplish that goal. Alex & Ashley are focused solely on helping other small businesses grow through the web. It is important to have your site match the target client and niche for your business. Living in Oregon and Washington for our entire lives, we are very much in touch with the vibe of the Pacific Northwest. Understanding and connecting with the community is important to a design. Since we live locally in Grays Harbor, and service clients in many cities in both Grays Harbor and Pacific counties, we are in touch with the needs of businesses in the area.
Our Design Process
Here at Pacific Northwest Web Works, we start our design process by first meeting with you, the client. During this meeting, we will discuss your goals for new the website. A website aimed at branding is going to be completely different from a personal style blog. By getting an idea of what you are looking for, Pacific Northwest Web Works will create some sketches of the site design. During the design process, the site can be tailored to exactly what you want. We also work well by example. You can show us other sites you like, and we will develop your new website based on those examples.
Once the basic design is laid out, we begin to work on developing a prototype. A link will be send to you so you can view the prototype. Once the prototype is complete, you can view the site and let us know about any changes. During the prototype phase, we will work on gathering photos, either from you or stock photos. Additionally, content will be developed and adjusted to help get the most of on-site optimization for search engines.
After the prototype phase has been completed, your site will be ready to ‘go live’. We can either assist with installing the new site on your web server, or show you how to make changes and get your site live on your own. If your site is hosted on our servers, we will handle everything and backup the old site for your archives.
If you need content created, we can work with you on developing content. However we strongly recommend that any detailed content specific to your business or needs be written by you. Who else would know your business or desires better? We can take any document or email you send us and add it to the website, but please keep in mind copyrights and help protect your new website by writing original content or properly quoting the original author. Alex or Ashley can also work with you on any graphic design needs you may have.
Once live, and depending on your needs, search engine submissions and optimization will become our focus. Included in the optimization is assisting with updating any links around the web. We can also help you sort out other websites like Facebook. If you have chosen to have us complete regular maintenance, we will also update your content as needed. As part of our design process, we will also ensure full mobile readiness and ensure the coding is validated properly.
Extra features like Google Analytics & Webmaster Tools can also be setup at this time so you can track how your new website is doing. Using webmaster tools over time, things like search words can be adjusted to help better target the website. Google Analytics allows you to view simple things like how many people visited, but also go much deeper and look at thing like what browser or device they use. By reviewing this data you can adjust how the site is optimized for those users. If you are on a maintenance plan, we will work on these minor adjustments when needed to keep your site perfect for all your visitors.
