About Joe Websites

Today's internet provides many, generic, out-of-the-box, do-it-yourself, solutions. But, you don't want to do it your self. You want a professional to build you a website that fulfills your needs.

Don't pay a professional to provide you with a generic solution.

The most common question potential clients ask us is, "Can you fix my messed up site?" And the most common reason for this is, their old developer purchased a cheap out-of-the-box theme and jury rigged it to create your site. You thought it looked good at first, but then you realized your site takes forever to load and search engines avoid it like the plague. It's built on a common theme and there is nothing about it that separates you from your competition.

Here at Joe Websites, we take pride in our work. We build custom solutions tailored to the needs of our clients. When we develop websites we put an emphasis on:

  • Functionality
  • Performance
  • Scalability
  • User experience
  • Search engine optimization

Our developers have over 20 years of experience, developing web based software. We build robust solutions using PHP, Javascript and CSS. We are experts in Wordpress development and build our own custom themes and plugins. We develop custom web based software solutions, including single page applications in Laravel, Zend and Drupal. We utilize cutting edge technologies like Vue.js, SASS, HTML5, CSS4 and JavaScript 9.

You can rest assured that your website is being developed by the best in the business at Joe Websites.

Web Design

We apologize up front, but, we don't design sites to please our clients. We design sites to please our clients' customers.

We don't care what your favorite color is.

Did you know that colors communicate a mood and provide an underlying emotion to your design? We don't care if your favorite color is red. If you are trying to impart a feeling of enthusiasm, spontaneity and positivity, your site is going to be yellow. There is a popular cartoon called, "When good design goes bad." And we've experienced enough of this to know, it's not the clients fault. The client pays us for our design expertise and we should know better. A large part of successful design is knowing when to do what is right at the expense of what is desired.

Often the needs of the customer outweigh the needs of the client.

Our designers are on the cutting edge of UX/UI design. And take great pride in providing your end-users with the best possible experience when interacting with you, your services and/or your products; no matter what device they are using.

Web Development

Here at Joe Websites, we like to say, "We are not cheap. We are cost effective." What we mean by that is, we implement development practices that save time and therefor save money.

We spend more time in the planning phase of development which saves us time in the implementation and delivery phases.

Reworking things after delivery takes the most time and costs the most money.

Changes made during the design/planning phase are quick and inexpensive. A properly designed project will save time and money.

An effective project is one that:

  1. Solves a problem
  2. Is scaleable and easy to maintain
  3. Is secure

When designing a project we plan well into the future so that maintenance is easy and cheap. We design solutions with security our #1 priority. In the long run these practices save money and increase client confidence.

Search Engine Optimization / Search Engine Marketing

If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound?

If you build a kick-ass website, and no one sees it, did you waste your money?

We put a lot of thought into our websites. And a lot of that thought revolves around SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Organic search results are the cheapest way to grow your company on the web. Our content writers place real emphasis on the keywords best suited to increase your organic traffic. We research your competition, see what works for them and devise ways to make them eat your dust.

But, often, SEO is not enough. That's where SEM (Search Engine Marketing) comes in. Our experts will drive the largest amount of traffic to your site, keeping your budget low and your ROI (Return on Investment) high.
