We focus on strategy and marketing, to ensure the overall website message has the best chance of getting the required action.
They make pretty graphic designs and just paste in the content you provide as-is (often spelling mistakes and all).
We have a business background - We know what makes a website effective.
They have an IT or Art background - Their designs may be pretty, but usually deliver no Return on Investment.
We have an in-house team of talented business strategists, marketers, designers, and programmers.
They are either designers or programmers, and usually have no access to strategists or marketers (and no one person can be really good at all 4).
We charge for Deliverables & Results.
They charge for Work Hours.
We tell you the real costs up-front and there won't be any surprises down the road.
They often give you a cheap price up-front to get the business and then surprise you with additional costs.
We super-charge your Rankings with SEO, bring immediate traffic with PPC, and grow your Brand with Social Media.
They only make websites. Marketing is left to you.
We always respond to clients in less than 24 hours, often same-day, and even get work done same-day when possible.
They often take days or weeks to get back to you, and sometimes not at all. (This is the biggest complaint we hear from our clients about previous developers).
Our hosting has fail-over and is never over-sold, always up, and always fast.
They usually resell consumer-grade hosting that is not always up and not always fast, sometimes downright slow.
