We don't start off with a sales pitch, we start off by listening
A good website proposal is loaded with details of exactly how things will be done, so in order to make sure that everyone is on the same page and that you'll be happy with the finished product, one of our representatives will speak with you in person or over the phone to find out what your needs are. After listening to your initial requests, we'll make suggestions as to what features you may also want to consider implementing as well as recommend eliminating things that'll run up your bill without providing much benefit. Once all the decisions have been made, we'll provide you with a custom proposal for work that you can review before proceeding any further.

Website Design: The Importance of First Impressions
Ever searched for something online, clicked on a search result, and immediately hit the "Back" button because you just knew the site you had landed on wasn't the type of thing you were looking for? Maybe you were looking for a company and found a site that looked like it had been made in someone's basement or maybe you were looking for a way to buy a certain product & left because the site looked like it was someone's blog. As a business owner, are you sure that clients aren't doing the same thing when they land on your site? Furthermore, are you sure that your site will hold it's own against your competition? If not, we can help!
Apps Communications will work with you to find out what kind of website layout you'd like as well as what design style is most appropriate for your business and industry. You'll be able to tell us what color scheme you'd like, what kind of a logo you'd like (if applicable) and any other details you'd like included in your custom website design. At that point, one of our experienced website designers will begin creating mockup designs in Adobe Photoshop and/or Illustrator and email them to you as they are finished. You'll have the freedom to request changes before the design is ever transformed into a website and the confidence that comes with knowing that your website will look exactly the way you wanted it to before the site goes live.
Website Development: Turning Dreams into Reality
Once a design is approved, front-end development will begin and your custom website design will be transformed into a working HTML template that you will then be able to track the progress of on one of our development servers. After all the latest applicable HTML and CSS has been integrated, our programming staff will take over to implement any additional functionalities that are needed such as CMS (content managmenet systems), administration areas, e-commerce systems, blogs, forums, etc. When the web development phase is complete, we'll work with your office staff to set up any necessary email accounts and push the website live!
Search Engine Optimization: Free Client Leads
Having a website for your business may be important, but having customers is critical - that's why many companies will spend countless dollars on advertising or "pay-per-click" campaigns to get their name out. However, what many corporations are realizing is that a top listing in Google will generate constant visits to their website without paying a dime in monthly fees. This is where search engine optimization comes in. Apps Communications has search engine optimization experts that will work with you to not only increase traffic to your site, but also decrease your bounce-rates (the % of people that leave immediately after arriving at your site) and increase the number of leads you get.
Advertising & Managing Public Relations Online
Interested in getting the word out about a new product or service? Have an upcoming event you'd like all your customer's to know about? Maybe you're grappling with some negative reviews that customers have left about your business on other websites. Apps Communications can help with all of these things. Through Synergy Casting you can get set up with blogs or accounts for SNS (social networking) sites like Facebook or Twitter as well as create email marketing campaigns. We can also work with you to create/manage the content that is displayed on these sites on a regular basis. Apps Communications can help you get set up on Google Places so that customers local to your area can find you (and find out about you) more easily, and we can even help you respond to or post business reviews to help keep your company in a positive light.
Low Cost Hosting Fees!
Once your professional website is designed and produced, you can pay web hosting fees as low as $25 per month to put your website on special high performance website servers. This insures that your customers will have speedy access to your website and e-mail accounts. Plus, we'll submit your website to Google's search index and install Google Analytics to help you track the visitors to your website.
