Holiday Shopping

When I start shopping for Christmas, I always like to be the most informed consumer out there. I research every aspect of a product, look up terms I don’t know, and read any reviews I can find. I always want to make sure I get the best product for my money and want to feel assured that the purchase won’t have major flaws or just break in a month.

When shopping for the right website design, being an informed consumer may be more difficult. Anyone can design you a new website, and whether you are updating an old site or creating a new one, it is much easier with today’s technology and shared Internet content for a company to make you a website that looks newer and better. Looks though, can be deceiving. It is the things you may not know you are missing that can make a website great.

Search engine optimization is one aspect that you may not know about. It is the technique used to get your website ranked higher in search engine s. Without expert SEO, no one may ever actually find and see your fancy looking website. Our award-winning search engine marketing department knows how to do the job and our in-house copywriting team is also key to the effort.

Usability planning on your website can also be strategically used to enhance its purpose. Menus, navigation, placement, color and many other aspects affect how easily your website is used. Animation can also add to ease of usability. Our video department is well trained in both 2D and 3D animation. Your website may look professional, but it might not be easy to use. At DDA we like to design and create with the user in mind. We may have to go on the assumption that not everyone using the website will be well versed in the latest technology, or we could go as high tech as possible. It all depends on the target audience.

Actually, design is another aspect that might not be up to snuff on your newly designed website. Because many companies use templates or take shortcuts in design, you may have a website that is eerily similar to thousands of other websites and isn’t tailored to your needs. At DDA, we take pride in customer feedback on every design aspect of the website. Each design is made from scratch with the company’s needs in mind. Plus, our design team has so much experience in website design over the years, that they know the ins and outs of the practice.

Speaking of experience, DDA has tons of it. We’ve been around since the early days of the Internet and have grown with it. We know how to do all those little extra tricks that put your website above the rest.
