Aside from offering special features and aesthetic appeal, we also strive to develop sites that are user-friendly, optimized for better load times, and “flow” in a smart way that encourages people to stay on your site longer and take a specific action.

Websites With Purpose

A website should be more than an informational dump and obligatory internet placeholder. We believe that a site’s usefulness is vital. For each client, we build a unique website that professionally represents their brand, while also focusing on the group of people who will be primarily visiting and using the site.

We craft websites that serve individual and unique purposes. We start new website projects by taking the time to study our clients’ industries and target audiences, this helps us better understand what the site should do and how it should look and function. In every case, the website’s layout and interface need to be clean and easy to navigate on desktop and mobile screen sizes.

Prep & Finishing Services

In addition to our ability to blend images and words into attractive and organized digital layouts, we also provide other services and special touches to bring web projects to life. Here is a list of other aspects of web design projects with which we can help:

E-Commerce

Now, more than ever, the ability to sell your products and services online is crucial. We have experience integrating payment platforms such as Square, Stripe, and PayPal, as well as commercial shipping accounts like USPS, UPS, or FedEx. With Secure Socket Layers (SSL) and other security hardening defenses, we help businesses deliver a safe and trustworthy experience.

Just having products with pricing online isn’t enough to have a successful e-store. We will also help you with product photography and developing your product lines through keyword research, description writing, and product branding.

Search Engine Optimization

When considering the advantages of investing in professional web development versus taking a cheaper alternative, search engine optimization (SEO) is one major differentiator. What is SEO? In short, it’s the process of fine-tuning your website so Google can more easily index your site and its pages for searches. In short, you want customers to find you when they search for what you’re offering, and SEO is the key.

By taking the time to develop keywords and optimize structure and content, the sites we develop are more likely to show up at the top of relevant web searches because Google can index and “crawl” the site more easily. Additionally, by developing our sites in WordPress, we can inherently better optimize the sites we build. Click here for more info about WordPress and why we prefer it over other content management systems. Here is shortlist of some of the things we focus on when approaching search engine optimization:

  • Keywords
  • Meta Descriptions
  • Alt Text
  • Backlinking and Internal Linking
  • Content Development
Standard Capabilities

For each website we build, regardless of its goals and target users, we start with the same basic recipe of quality, functionality, and style. Every website needs to be responsive so that no matter what type of device it’s viewed on, it looks and works great. We also believe in creating sites that are cleaned and geared toward converting visitors into leads or customers. Another primary concern is that our websites properly reflect their brand, using the correct colors and brandmarks. 

One significant component of a great looking website is the photography and graphics used to balance the text. We include our photography services for new website projects to ensure that we can deliver the best possible results for you and your site visitors.

Ongoing Support

We can host your website and maintain your website once it’s launched. Content Management Systems (CMS) such as WordPress often have security updates. Aside from WordPress core updates, there are other software updates to consider, such as those for the various plugins used to extend a website’s functionality. Once we finish building websites, we can host them on our Virtual Private Server (VPS) and maintain the necessary software updates that are sometimes available multiple times each week.

Aside from security and technology updates, we can also help you with keeping your website’s content updated and monitor Google Search Console for any issues that may affect your site’s ranking with Google Search.

We recently launched our Account Portal site that we developed to provide clients with access to our support ticketing system and Project Management system. Whenever you have any questions or concerns, you can log in to your account dashboard at portal.starryeyesmedia.com/client-login and submit a support request.

Existing Site Updates

Do you already have a website, but it needs to be updated? Perhaps you’re using an outdated platform like Adobe Business Catalyst that will be discontinued in September 2021, or your site relies heavily on Adobe Flash, which will no longer be supported by browsers like Google Chrome after December 2020.

We have experience accessing existing sites and updating technology and content, as well as migrating existing content from non-WordPress platforms. We will also gladly help you move your website from one server to another. In any case, we can also take over site management responsibilities. We’ll provide you with in-depth web hosting and maintenance options so you never have to scramble to find a new developer again. 

To save you from being in the middle of two web companies’ technical conversations, we will deal directly with any other web company you’ve been using or will be using. Easy peasy.

Contact us so we can start evaluating your current site and provide you with an estimate.

"Starry Eyes Media is a great company to work with and very knowledgeable in their craft. They built a website that drives sales far beyond our expectations and showed us what true professionalism looks like. We loved working with them and continue to have them update our website regularly. I would recommend their work to any business owner that wants to add a professional custom website to their sales toolbox!"   - Will Lambert, Owner

Black Oak ATV Resort

"Since becoming a client of Starry Eyes Media, my struggling business has taken off. I run a cabin rental business, and my nights of rentals have more than doubled. When I first approached them, I told them that I have a good product but feel like I'm not reaching enough people to let them know about my cabins. We sat down and collaborated and what I wanted my website to look like. It wasn't long after that they contacted me and said it was done."   - Bruce Sizemore, Owner

"I chose Starry Eyes to work with because of their ability to be creative and "think outside the box." I didn't want an uninspired, canned, corporate approach. Also, I needed people who would have patience with my lack of experience in marketing planning and website development. Starry Eyes did not disappoint. They were patient with my endless questions, and I love the marketing plan, logo, rack card, and website that they developed for my small business."   - Kristal Straub, Owner
