All the technical details to build a successful website

If you don't find it here, ask us and we'll add it.

Would a free website help you get off the ground?

Through my regular attendance at events like Ideas Meetings, ASC and IdeaWave, I know that a lot of people have ideas for a product or business they’d like to launch.  However, they often cite finances as a barrier to entry and of course getting a website started for a new product does entail a financial commitment.  As many of you know, I volunteer more than I work and I prioritize on giving back to the community; as such, I’m excited to announce One Day Website will begin giving away one free website per month.  Not just a One Day Website, but the Custom Tailored package, including wo hours of graphic design,and two hours of copy writing or editing of your existing content.

What is a WordPress CMS?

If you’re looking to create a website and you’re not a techy, you’re probably not yet that familiar with hypertext markup language (HTML) or cascading style sheets (CSS). Instead, you’re likely looking for a content management system or CMS. A CMS allows you to edit all of your pages from one central place. They also allow for a collaborative website, if you have other family or staff you’d like to help you edit your website. You can think of a CMS like having two websites. The first is the CMS, which you need to login to, the second is the public website that everyone sees. As soon as you save a change in the CMS, it automatically appears.

Trying the Responsive Web Design friendly Soliloquy slider

A couple things we’ve been working on are responsiveness, and customer satisfaction. Responsive Web Design (RWD) is the application of building your website(s) with the idea they may be viewed on various devices, be it a cell phone, tablet or desktop computer. For example, if this post is difficult to navigate or read in your current viewer, please let me know. It should resize as your display does. 

Even lower prices, and new features; we’re one year old!

To celebrate our one year anniversary, I’m excited to announce some lower prices, as well as some new features. For our first year, we’ve been offering a single plan, at $399. This is when some of our competitors charge between $2,000 and $5,000 for the same service, and we have you up and running in one day. Instead of moving closer to our competitors, we’re making it even easier to choose us; our introductory website package is now only $299!

Add Meta Description tags for everything

If you authored websites with HTML in the past you probably remember meta keywords tags; these have effectively been rendered useless, as so many people used keywords that weren’t applicable to their site to gain traffic that would have otherwise gone to their competitors. Because of this, Google no longer uses meta keyword tags in web ranking; however, they do still utilize “description” meta tags for results snippets as described in this article.
