The key to an effective website is a visually stunning design, compelling content, a clear call-to-action and easy to use platform. Here at Bontra, we take you through the entire lifecycle of the web design process, from discovery and design to development and deployment. Our goal is to create one-of-a-kind designs that don’t look like all the rest. We specialize in unique creations; therefore, we don’t do template websites such as WordPress. We offer fully responsive custom designs that keeps your branding intact and displays on all platforms.
Cookie-cutter templates are punctuated by poor service and tired designs that look like everyone else’s. Not only are you risking the loss of potential customers due to lack of professional appearance, proper functionality, and mistake-riddled copy, you’re damaging your company’s reputation, marketability, and ability to improve website conversions.
That’s why Bontra is passionate about creating something that’s designed solely for you at a very affordable cost. As such, we offer a proven four-pronged approach to boosting your web presence and getting you noticed.
All our web design and development projects begin with a discovery meeting to visualize your ideas, offer some of our own, and create an outline that incorporates your goals and ensures an online experience that converts visitors into customers. This initial meeting is a free service.
Once we have a vision for your site, we’ll start on a design concept that will kick start the process of incorporating your preferred colors, styles and fonts to bring your ideas to life. Be as involved and engaged as you want, or if you prefer to take a back seat, leave all the details up to us. Once the design concept is in place, we will bring in our copywriter to capture your “Recipe for Success.” We’ll capture your voice and tone, with compelling content designed to embed rich keywords and strategic SEO tactics. It’s not enough to have an eye-catching site: you need commanding content to back it up. At Bontra, you get the entire package.
Once you have approved the design, we will start the coding process, implementing the design and professional copywriting to build out the framework of your website. You’ll get a development link to your new account so you can view the work in progress from anywhere with Internet access. We encourage feedback from you throughout this stage: what works and what doesn’t?
After the development process is complete, we will request final approval of your new website and then launch it. With any new account, Bontra offers free hosting for one year for your website with Deluxe. We’ll also help set up Google Analytics, site map submissions, and social media platforms, as well as mobile and desktop for your email accounts.
Training and Ongoing Maintenance
Many so-called web design companies promise support after the design is finished, but as soon as the site goes live, they take off. Not us. We stick around to make sure your website functions properly and fulfills its ultimate promise: Going “Beyond the Design”. Once your website is up and running, we will schedule a training session on setting up the social media components of your site if it’s hosted by Bontra. As part of our website maintenance service, we will update images, content, new product lines or anything else that falls outside the scope of the original proposal.
As you can see, we go above and beyond the design: we are here for you from beginning to end and beyond. But don’t take our word for it, check out what one of our clients had to say about us: “I contacted Bontra primarily to update the technology used to create the existing Dec-Tam site. Our goal was not to re-create the wheel but to make the site more user friendly and accessible from all mediums including PC’s, tablets and mobile phones. Did I mention I needed it done quickly and within a modest budget? Keith not only met but exceeded these expectations. Keith was able to transform Dec-Tam’s site into a vibrant, easy-to-navigate site on time and within budget. I couldn’t be more pleased. Keith over delivered us a beautiful, up to date site and even got Dec-Tam up to speed in the area of social networking.”
