Good design is essential with any web presence, this doesn’t mean that it just “looks good” it means that the visual representation of the brand is properly combine technology to create an overall impression of the values of the company. Many complaints we here about competitor companies is either; they are very good at programming but the design is unprofessional or awkward, or they designer did a at job on creating something really nice but when executed lacks technical cohesiveness.
Most fo our web development currently has to with WordPress, Shopify, or other major content management system that have proven stability, functionality, and future conscious development processes.
Design and implementation of a one page message seems simple. Don’t be fooled, encoding the HTML specifically for email is not the same as HTML for regular webpages, the type of HTML that works best for most email browsers is a much smaller set of tools, the code needs to be written in a redundant way so that it will display properly across all email systems. Spam filtering is a very real obstacle in getting your message across, the best designed message that gets sent to spam is just as good as sending a blank page, not effective at all. We have extensive knowledge of the pitfalls and issues with email HTML and direct marketing.
