Content Management SystemWith our rapidly changing life comes the demand for updated material and this will be in your control with our custom Websites. We use Web content management, a form of a Content Management System (CMS), so that edits and additions can be made by anyone with no prior programming experience. If you can format documents in a word processor, you can update your own site!
Joomla!™ is our CMS of choice. While Wordpress is generally reserved for Blogs, Joomla!™ is a system which includes features such as RSS feeds, printable versions of pages, news flashes, blogs, polls, website searching, and language internationalization. With thousands of plugins, modules and components available, Joomla!™ is a powerful platform for building a rich Website for you and your business.
Content Writing, Search Engine Optimization and AnalyticsIn order to have the best Website you can have, you need to have well written content for the Internet. This is very different than writing for print. Simply put, an Internet audience reads Websites differently than they read print material. Search engines have specially crafted algorithms to find and rank sites based on this content, and anaytics to report and measure the effectiveness of both.
Pretty Good Designs provides content writing services to maximize your Website's marketing success. This carefully composed and constructed content and special programming works together with search engine optimization and submittal to get you and your business Website noticed by your target audience. Easy analytic access powered by Google Analytics™ is also provided so you can measure the effectiveness of your site and your special campaigns.
