|The easiest way to explain something is to show it to you, so here are some examples of what we have done with some explainations of how and why. If you just want to visit some of our live sites and skip walking through the process with us, go to our portfolios link on the left.|
Side NavigationThe side bar or side nav. as we call it is the second level of access or links. Planning how this further breaks down your information is essential to guiding your viewer through the site and keeping them comfortable with the experience. What those links are further dictates your design, but that does not mean it has to be a bar or on the side, it just has to be somewhere where your visitor can find it easily.
For example the banner below puts the second level of navigation below the banner and the main links. There are also drop down menus, fly out menus and push down menus; whatever they are, they need to be clear, easy to find and always visible.
Self Edit Functions
Our edit interface allows you to build and manage your website with little more than emailing skills. You can add pages, images, edit text, and send newsletters all in real time. Your site is available to you anytime, from any online computer, anywhere.
Web sales of products and services, page modification, picture and file upload are a few of the editing capabilities we integrate into your website. Modules that can be customized or used as is and integrated into your site as your needs evolve. This enables you to add or delete products yourself into as many standard or custom fields as you wish. Our proprietary technology modules run on our ASP servers giving you the ability to do whatever can be imagined as simply as if you were using email or your own account inventory and management software. Be able to update pages of your website wherever and whenever you please. Multilevel user, password based access and multiuser licensing are available to larger organizations looking to have their staff publish directly into their online presence.
The little story below illustrates the possiblities:
Suppose its 2 a.m. and you suddenly awaken from a sound sleep realizing that the prices on your ecommerce site, Special Sales page, are wrong and you could be getting thousands of hits, costing you a fortune! What would you do, call your site host and hope that maintenance is awake? Even Ken has to sleep sometime, I might be out dancing, John could be on vacation, it could happen. Fear not, your site has our custom editing function installed. So haul your sorry ass out of bed, boot up your kid's computer, get on line, go to your site give the secret password, open that page and be a god. Change those prices, change the hours you open, save it, the site has been updated LIVE, go back to bed and get a good nights sleep.
How the magic happensThere is only common sense. We work out with you what you want your site to be about, plan out a navigation plan or site map; if that works for you then we begin the design cycle. We present you with two or three "looks", we talk it over, choose one, or don't. We go away, we come back with two or three "refinements", we talk it over, etc, etc.
Eventually you have the look you want. It can take as long as a couple of hours or a couple of months, luck has a lot to do with it, so does money, so does experience, so does the agreement we made with you before we started. Its a partnership not a dictatorship, with that said we can make magic. All you have to do is trust us with the swords and stand, very, very still, its all done with mirrors.
