The number one problem clients seem to deal with regarding web development is the inability to edit their sites by themselves.
An Ad Guy’s commitment in web development is to provide clients websites that they can edit when and how they see fit. Beyond that, we give them the tools to further promote their websites and drive traffic.
To accomplish this An Ad Guy builds all of its websites for clients using the blog publishing application WordPress. You can read more about it here
, simply stated, WordPress is a solid software foundation on top of which a uniquely branded look can be place and structured providing clients with a robust content management system
that allows them to manage their websites without being tethered to a web designer.
“Form Follows Function”
It’s not enough for you to have a great looking site. Your business must communicate your Key Message clearly. This is true for all of your marketing, but if your website in particular fails at this, it’s as if you’ve invited a bunch of people to a party, but no one’s home.
The main point of websites designed by An Ad Guy stands out first and foremost. What is it? What’s it about? Why should I care?
Beyond that, these solutions take the reader or visitor through the next logical steps to achieve your goals. Fundamentally, your Key Message is expressed by every aspect of the design. An Ad Guy’s web designs are clear, bold and always persuasive. Depending on your goal, sometimes they’re complex and at other times they’re very basic. Each project dictates the requirements of the design.
Pricing and Fees
An Ad Guy has a 3-tier pricing structure for website development. If you’re looking for a “simple one page website” we will most likely talk you into using WordPress
as your solution. That’s because the money and time spent on a so-called “simple” static website that you, the client, cannot edit and that is not scalable for your enterprise (which should be growing), would be better spent on a dynamically generated website
solution that can grow with your efforts.
