GRAND LAKE web designs
AFFORDABLE WEBSITE & GRAPHIC DESIGN AGENCY
Blending Art and Technology to Present Your Business to the World 24/7
We build WordPress websites built with the world class Divi Theme.
Divi utilizes a modular approach to design so that if in the future you want to add new capabilities it will be an easy thing to do. Using Divi, allows us to create a beautiful and responsive site, that brings you results as well as ease of maintenance.
Using the Divi framework we can design a website that will exceed your unique business requirements:
- On line shopping and shopping cart
- Event registration and ticket sales
- Vacation rental bookings
- Email list opt-ins
- Image galleries
- Video galleries
- Secure HTTPS encryption
- and more. . .
When I started the process of trying to find a developer for our new web site, I was certain we would be working with a designer in a far off location. Fortunately I was directed to you Paul and have been very pleased. We ended up with a 1st class site like the ‘big boys’ for a price I could afford. Thank you for your patience with us and the awesome job you did!
Sincere regards, Todd Elson Managing Partner, Indian Hills Marina
Mobile Friendly Design – Why?
The majority of users coming to your site are likely to be using a mobile device. Quoted from the Google website . . .
“In the USA, 94% of people with smartphones search for local information on their phones. Interestingly, 77% of mobile searches occur at home or at work, places where desktop computers are likely to be present.”
Google favors responsive (mobile-friendly) sites over all others, giving them a better search rank. Our client websites all pass the mobile-friendly test. Yours could too!
Facebook is Not a Substitute for a Website
Your website is the core to your online presence. Social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) are tools to get people to visit your website.
Every person that visits your site will see exactly what you want them to see, and you will be able to virtually guide them through the information that will most likely answer their question and commit them as a new client.
Facebook is a “must have” for attracting website visitors, but it does not, nor can it, replace the functionality of your own website.
Most of our earlier website designs were built using HTML, and later with HTML5 Bootstrap 3. Over time many of these earlier sites began looking “old” and out of date. These earlier sites became candidates for re-design and have been rebuilt using WordPress and Divi.
The following images represent a few of the Before and After of these re-designs. Switch the slider control on each to view.
