Quite often our clients ask "How can you do fast, quality web design
for these prices?" Our answer is:
- It is our avocation, as well as our vocation (yes, we're
geeks), so we love it and have lots of experience to apply to
- Our business model is innovative.
- We are commited to making getting on the internet easy
for the small business owner.
Dave and Denise graduated high school in 1977 and 1979 -- perfect
timing, since that was the advent of the PC. We've been programming
on PCs since then. And we were teaching people about the internet
back when email was done largely with PINE
(Program for Internet News and Email, written circa 1989), few
people had heard of Compuserve (much less AOL), and we had to
explain to clients what a modem was.
We have years of real experience in what we do. And we happily
put that experience to work for you, the small business owner.
Unique Business Model
The key to our prices is in our business model. We do most of
the work ourselves, or use contract programmers. Since there are
no full-time employees, we don't have the kind of administrative
and payroll costs web design companies have.
Our Distributed Service Model means that your business might
be located in North Carolina, but your web site is hosted on a
server in Calgary, with a backup in Texas.
The person designing your site (usually Dave or Denise) is,
as of Jan 2005, working in the guest room of a home where Dave
and Denise are housesitting, in Airdrie, Alberta. Starting in
March 2005, we will be working from a 'housesit' about 45 minutes
away in the southeast of Calgary. After that, we hope to have
a housesit somewhere in the south of the U.S., or in Nova Scotia.
We have the freedom and mobility we want. We also have very low
overhead, and plenty of time to do what we love - your website
- while we pass the savings along to you.
We offer global expertise to global customers, from a variety
of places in North America, all while being constantly available
by email, and usually available by phone (since we don't have
a full-time employee; this line is monitored by Dave and Denise,
and it is not answered when we are not in the office).
Our Commitment is to You
We're not part of some larger corporation that's obsessed with
its bottom line. We're more concerned with helping smaller businesses
get the edge they need to compete in an affordable way.
We are committed to the entrepreneurial vision, the proprietor
who has a better way to do something, and the non-profit struggling
to make ends meet for a noble cause. That's why we keep our prices
low. Our competition may be grabbing the big deals, but we like
to think we're making a difference. Clients give us the freedom
to continue this business model, pay the bills, and have the pleasure
of creating their new and interesting websites.
So that's how we do it. Our clients are very pleased with the
results, and we would like the opportunity to prove to you how
it can work for you.
