Professional Web Design
Mid America Web offers Professional Web Design in Southern Illinois for clients looking to establish an online presence for their business. We can also take your outdated website and give it a fresh, sleek new look. A website is typically a true reflection of who your company is and should articulate the services or products that you offer. We will assist you throughout the entire design process and offer our professional suggestions to help create a website that you will be proud to showcase to potential customers. Our design process is divided up into 3 primary phases; website consultation, concept/design phase and coding phase.
The first step will be for our design team to meet with a potential client in the Southern Illinois area to discuss ideas and gather information as to what kind of website is required for their business. We will take the time to learn about your company and the services you provide. We will offer our feedback and suggestions based on your provided information to assist you in making decisions as to how you would like your website to look and function. We can also discuss any design ideas you may have and incorporate them into a concept (mockup) for you to review.
Once we have gathered the necessary information from you, the next step will be for us to develop a website concept based on your ideas and feedback as to how you would like your website to look and lay-out. We will incorporate the colors of your logo into the interface of the design to ensure that your new site will be branded properly to maintain consistency with your company’s image.
Upon approval of the concept, we will next move onto the final phase which will involve coding and developing the mockup into a functional, working website and begin setting up the pages and adding content (text & images) if necessary. We ensure that your website is coded to be “search engine friendly” and that it validates as being compliant with the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) standards for HTML5 code.
WordPress Content Management System
Mid America Web integrates your website inside of a WordPress Content Management System, which allows you to easily edit your website’s content (text & images) on your own at any time as needed. WordPress is a powerful, secure, open source content management system as well as a blogging tool. The rapid rise in the popularity of online blogging in recent years has made WordPress one of the world’s most popular web-based blogging systems.
The primary advantage of the WordPress program is that is does not require any knowledge of website HTML code for you to update and maintain your website. If you have basic computer skills and can use a program similar to Microsoft Word, you will have the ability to use WordPress to make changes to your website 24/7.
As an open-source platform, WordPress can support an endless number of features to enhance its capabilities and functionality. A large community of developers have made it possible for us to make enhancements to your site as required.
Here are some key features and screenshots of WordPress:
- Ability to update content easily without any knowledge of HTML code.
- Ability to add/remove photos.
- Add/remove pages as needed.
- Create password protected pages.
- Page revision backups.
- Ability to maintain and edit a blog.
