Website Refresh and Rebuilds Rebuilding a website is one of the most difficult things a houston web designer can do, and the thing we commonly see people come to us with. We fix what others break. The reason this is as complicated as it is start with having a page ranked in Google. When you disturb a website that is ranking well, there are many little details that can cause a website to tank and if those are not accounted for, the website will start to sink. Sometimes it happens slowly and it is hard to tell, other times its sharp and sudden drop. SEO411 has ‘flipped’ many websites. Each site has seen a sizable growth and better conversion
Website Conversion – Anyone who has ever attended our seminars knows that we do not advise using Wix, Weeble, Web, SquareSpace or Shopify. The reason is simple. Those platforms do not give you the ablity to have a high ranking website without someone very skilled driving the platform. Usually that costs more to address than a simple coversion into WordPress. We can have websites stood up in WordPress in very short order depending on the size of the site. From there its up to you how fast or how far you want to go on the road to website success.

Web development is the creation of custom fuctionality that is unique to a business, where web design is the superficial pages and the physical appearance of those pages. Web development often is present and needed when building an E-commerce store. Web Development could be a system that allows subscriptions and memberships.
