Custom Websites

 

Custom WebsitesWe Can Create Beautiful Custom Websites For You

We have been creating custom websites since 1995 for hobby groups, non-profit organizations, sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations and international companies.

Every one of our custom websites is specialized to meet our clients’ needs. We create customized graphics as per your specifications. This ensures consistency with your current marketing material.

You also receive consultation for all your custom websites. As your website grows and expands, we can maintain the site, keeping critical information up to date and current (e.g. price lists, corporate info, etc.)

Content Management Systems (CMS)

We can install various content management systems on your hosting account for you so that you don’t have to get into the technical aspects of copying files, creating databases and configuring software.

Our graphic designers can build a theme or template for all your custom websites. We can use your logo, colors and layout to match your pre-existing corporate identity. If you need a corporate identity, then we can design that for you too!

After the design work is done, we can continue on with the rest of the website development process. This may include creating specific capabilities or adding content such as text, pictures and video.

WordPress CMS

WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability.

Joomla CMS

Joomla is an award-winning CMS (Content Management System), which enables you to build websites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla one of the most popular website tools available.

Drupal CMS

Drupal is an open source content management platform powering millions of websites and applications. It’s built, used, and supported by an active and diverse community of people around the world.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Gecko Websites provides SEO (search engine optimization) services. We work with you to ensure that your website is search engine friendly. This is an important part of developing custom websites.

Each search engine is run independently and we therefore have no control over the length of time before results may be seen. However, it can take anywhere from a few days up to three months. Feel free to contact us for more information regarding the inner workings of search engines and directories.

Having your custom websites properly encoded with the correct combination of keywords, description, site title, etc. is a crucially important first step. The reason is that this is part of the information that search engines use to rank your site. If your site is ranked number 250 under a specified keyword, obviously the chances that someone will find you are very slim.

Search Engine Marketing (SEM)

After the website development process has been finalized, website promotion is the next item to complete. This is one of the most overlooked aspects in business. There is usually such a great amount of planning, designing, developing, recreating and testing of a website in its initial phases, that once it’s all up and running, it’s far too easy to sit back, relax and breathe a sigh of relief. It’s at this point of “completion” that the project is only half finished. Even if your website is as perfect as can be, it’s simply a great waste of time, money and effort if no one is aware that it exists.

There are plenty of marketing strategies which can be used to promote your site and let the world know it exists. Some can cost a fortune, others are quick and cheap. It’s not necessarily the price that will determine your success rate, but the targeted implementation.

We can analyze your website to find out how well it performs within the search engines. This can be to see where it ranks for a particular keyword, or how it ranks against a competitor’s site.
