At Storm Code we strive to be a full-service Web company and offer a variety of professional services and solutions to our clients.  Web Design is a very broad term that encompasses a dynamic and ever growing set of services.  When you choose Storm Code for your web development, web design, web hosting or web marketing, or search engine optimization (SEO) needs, you can be sure that we can handle anything you require.

Whenever we take on a new client or project, we use a phase-based production strategy to reduce development time and costs.  Various techniques like wireframing and site models help to reduce development slags and create both sustainable web technology and simple development tasks with the utmost precision.

We also incorporate marketing strategy and search engine optimization (SEO) into the development which reduces the need to further optimize the site once it has been launched.

Web Design

At Storm Code, we take pride in every website we design, whether it be a small business start up to a Real Estate Brokerage to an Automotive Wholesaler.   Our clients come from a diverse background of businesses and we have the experience to design any type of website they need.  We can do custom designed websites in PHP that take advantage of MySQL databases for things like mailing lists, user login, surveys, analytics and much more.  For our clients with a smaller budget we take advantage of existing content management systems (CMS) like Joomla, WordPress and Drupal to insure production is both quick and affordable.  All the websites that we create come with an above average level of search engine optimization (SEO).  When we are doing the initial design for a site, we take SEO into account, saving our clients money in the long run.

Web Development

For our clients who have needs that go beyond simple web design, we offer web development in PHP.   Aside from doing development and then signing off on it, we also take on continued development clients (clients with whom we continue to enjoy an ongoing business relationship).  Using PHP and a MySQL database we are able to create dynamic, ever-growing websites that cater directly to our clients’ needs.

Web Development is geared more towards clients who need websites with added functionality.  This functionality can be social networking features, e-commerce features, classifieds and job posting features, lead generation features, or in the case of a Real Estate Brokerage, having their listings show up on their website in a searchable format.

Google Page Speed Optimization

Google Page Speed Optimization is an important part of Search Engine Optimization as well as the end-user experience. We offer a variety of services with quick turn around to increase your Google Page Speed Rank. Read more about our Google Page Speed Optimization Service.

Facebook Page Creation

We offer Facebook Page Creation starting at $49.  This includes creation of the page, adding pertinent business information and pictures,  a blog post on the new page,  a ‘Find us on Facebook’ icon added to your existing website and suggesting the page to the friends of up to 3 Facebook accounts.   If you would like more information or to get a page set up, please contact us.

Live Chat for your Website

Using existing Live Chat software we can quickly and cheaply set up your website to allow your clients and potential clients to request live chat sessions.  This is great for all types of businesses.  Anyone in your office can be set up as an operator and can field questions, or handle support.  If you have ever gone to a website and used a Live Chat feature, you know how convenient it is.  That convenience can belong to users of your website as well.

Blog Setup, Design and Hosting

If you already have web hosting, we can install and configure blogging software for you to use.  Prices vary depending on the host, and the type of design you want, but we generally quote around $300 for blog setup and configuration.  We’ll even walk you through how it works, free of charge.

If you do not have web hosting, or your web hosting is not capable of supporting a blog, we can host your blog for you.  Our blog hosting is very affordable, usually only about $100 a year depending on the traffic your blog gets.

Back-end Site Development

At Storm Code we pride ourselves in helping our clients develop the online tools they need to streamline their business.  We can help to automate daily tasks such as newsletters, mailing lists, and record updating.   Our Back-end site development can help cut hundreds of man-hours worth of work a month, allowing your employees to focus on building sales, as well as other jobs.

Many businesses these days have found that storing information in an online database such as MySQL is the way to go.  With an online database it’s very easy to stream whatever information is in the database onto your front end website.  If you sell a product or offer a service, having your products and services listed or for sale on your website is an integral part of building sales.

We can develop the tools you need to easily update, maintain and monitor your database, as well as create the time saving tools that will not only save you money, but help you make more of it.

Database Design

We have years of database design experience.  If you are looking to have a database designed to act as the foundation of your website, you’ve come to the right place.  Database design is not easy, and if it’s done wrong then the headaches and wasted time that can result from it can be extreme.  At Storm Code, whenever we take on a new client, we try to learn as much about their business as possible.  This helps us to create a database that is easy to maintain, easy to expand, and easy to develop with.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Search Engine Optimization is a common buzz word these days.  What really goes into optimizing a site for search engines though?  There are hundreds of companies that offer SEO services.  You need to beware though, because some of these companies utilize black search engine tactics.  These tactics could get you completely banned from search engines such as Google and Yahoo.

At Storm Code we only utilize white search engine tactics.  These are tactics that are recommended by the Search Engine Companies themselves.  These include but are not limited to Keyword Research, Keyword Optimization, Keyword Placement, and building a variety of real back-links.  We also use Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) to provide the most thorough SEO technology available.

Web Hosting

Web Hosting is a service we offer to all our clients, but it is not required to receive our other services as we frequently develop for clients with who use a  variety of web hosts.  We do recommend that all our clients host their websites with us, however.  The reason being is that we have much greater access to all of their files, and the server configuration which allows us to get things done much quicker.

Our Web Hosting is affordable.  We aren’t a large company and we don’t have any ‘canned’ hosting packages.  We only charge you for what you need.  We don’t jack up our hosting costs and justify it by offering useless features and abilities.

Our prices  are very affordable and vary depending on a variety of things including the size of the site, and expected traffic.

Domain Registration

We strive to be a full-service Web Company.  One of the biggest headaches of creating a website is purchasing (and monitoring) a domain name.  We can handle all of that for you.  Domain registration is usually $15 a year but can depend on the type of domain being registered (.com, .net, .eu, etc)

Pay Per Click (PPC) Campaign Management

Do you have a Google Adwords campaign that is not living up to your marketing needs?  Do you need a Google Adwords campaign created for you?  You’ve come to the right place.   We manage many of our clients online marketing campaigns.  We’ll track click-throughs, conversions and impression, as well as research the keywords that are going to cost you the least while getting you the most.  Managing a marketing campaign day in and day out can be stressful when you have other things on your plate, let us take care of it for you.

We are registered as Google Adwords Professionals with Google and we use their Adwords Client Center to manage all of our clients Adwords campaigns with ease.

Technical Support via Phone and E-mail

We are not a huge company.  When you call us, someone picks up the phone.  We pride ourselves on knowing each one of our clients and providing them with the customer support they deserve.  We offer support to our clients on the phone, via e-mail or in person.

We commonly exchange several e-mails and phone calls a day with our clients.

Project Managers

Each of our clients works with one of our Project Managers.  The Project Manager is the client’s main contact within the business.  They manage development and design of our clients’ websites and hosting.  Each of our Project Managers is highly trained and works directly with the programmers and designers developing the website.
