In the early years of a company very few have the luxury of starting out with effective messaging and branding because a lot of what makes these effective isn't known at the inception, and must be learned while running a company. It is not uncommon for a company to go through several phases in its development, experimenting with different paths, messages, and look of their materials.
What typically happens is this
This lack of focus leads to customer confusion, lack of recognition and association, and ineffective communication. Since this makes marketing ineffective and thus hampers your ability to sell and attract the customers you want there comes a time in the life cycle of every company where this WILL limit your growth.

When you've been in business as long as we have, customers bring you all sorts of platforms to work with. We haven't worked with them all, but we've worked with a great number of them. Here are a few of the more common ones;
Where a website is hosted, how its secured, how its maintained, and the third-party services you use to keep it humming are just as important. We've been around the block, so we've had the pleasure to work with all sorts of technologies and we know what works best, and have already done it before.
We only use industry standard programming languages and databases so that our code is as flexible and adaptable as possible.
We offer a guarantee on all the work we do against any bugs or issues for 30 days. The majority of issues you encounter will be found in the first 30 days after the launch of a website or web/mobile app.
Sure we build websites but we can do heavy lifting like building web-applications, mobile applications, and software that runs companies. We also do Digital Marketing Consulting; helping companies optimize their websites for conversions or sales and plan and execute digital campaigns.
We spend a great deal of time and resources hiring our consultants and staff. We like to hire smart, creative people who have technical know how. We're serious about doing great work and like to work with like minded people.
We're not going to up and disappear on you like other companies in our industry. We've worked with some clients for 11+ years and have grown alongside them.
Most companies in our industry farm out the technical work of programming, UI/UX, and graphics but we handle it all internally. Unlike most web companies we have expertise in Digital and Traditional marketing which helps us make better products.
Unlike other companies in our industry we don't outsource our work to subcontractors. We also don't offshore our work to cheaper, lower quality developers, designers, etc. Our focus is on quality.
We firmly believe that projects should be guided from start to finish by experienced consultants with development, graphics, and management experience who can understand both the business processes and the technical aspects to address our clients' needs.
They will also be your primary contact with our team and will help coordinate the project.
All of our consultants have a minimum of 5 years of experience and go through extensive training.
