Our first love at Doogle Design is designing websites. We love the feeling of accomplishment that accompanies completing a website. We revel in the excitement a client feels when their site is finished. From the initial meeting with our customers to servicing their existing website--we enjoy it all. Each client is a new friend--a new family member in Doogle's ever growing family tree.
What we do:
We offer many web site design options. We design and implement ecommerce sites, catalogs, blogs, community sites, forums, static websites, and we can accommodate custom requests. We design using the latest web coding languages to ensure your site is head turning.
Each of our websites are designed on the award winning Content Management System (CMS) Joomla. Having a CMS for your website means you can be taught to administer your own content on your website. A CMS also makes implementing SEO strategies simple.
Feeling ugly? Don't worry. Along with designing fresh websites, we also can take an existing site and give it a complete makeover. Let's face it, a website that was built five years ago has nothing on the sites being built today. Facebook integration, Google Maps, HTML5--the list goes on and on. Each is an example of why you should consider improving your current web presence.
In order to give our clients savings, we have bundled our services together. Purchasing our services a la carte is always an option, however our packages are designed to give our clients a road map to what their site will need. Purchasing our services at one time allows us to discount the total cost and give our clients greater value.
Features of the packages include the following: Gallery, Google Maps/Directions Pages, About Us Page, Contact Form, Facebook--Twitter--Rss Integration, Blogging Software, Forum Software, Social Networking Community Software, eCommerce Software, Favicons, Custom Design and much more. At Doogle, our goal is give our customers the perfect fit. We don't want them to have to invest more than they need to in their website.
We are fiercely proud of our design options, and each of these packages were put together with our clients in mind. Just like proud parents, we have photos of our design packages below. Just click on the one you are interested in to get more information.
A brief description is in order for the different types of packages we offer, however if you have any questions regarding what would be the best website for your business--give us call for a free consultation.
A website with content that doesn't change frequently. Typical static websites are corporate or small business websites that want to communicate the basics--who they are, their story, a sample of what they do (gallery), a contact page, and perhaps a map page with directions. Businesses could include, doctor's offices, legal services, small business sites, tech company sites, and really anything that has 10 menu items or less.
A blog website has dynamic information that is communicated in a daily journal style format. The content is typically integrated with social media in order to communicate the blog effectively to larger audiences. There is a need for a homepage or front page for the blog, there is a need for an about us page, a contact page, and the ability to easily embed media (images, videos, music, etc.). These websites rely heavily on catchy, creative design and ease of use to capture users and turn them into subscribers.
A forum website is a website based around a bulletin board where users interact with each other via categories of discussion and discussion threads. Typical forums allow for users to control their profiles and allow for custom avatars for each member. Forums are based solely on content driven and created by the members of the site. This includes files (images, documents, videos, music, etc.) attached to posts. Forums can be for entertainment, education or somewhere in between. Forum sites require extensive forum software configuration and also rely heavily on design to draw users to the correct locations on pages to register, login and make posts.
Catalog sites are directories of information. This could include product directories with reviews, this could mean a cooking website with recipes, or a directory of businesses. There are no limitations to the type of information that can be categorized and cataloged. Movies, music, universities, sports teams--it depends totally on the site being constructed. These sites are huge with expansive directories and have the ability to have hundreds and thousands of pages. SEO is very important on these sites, as it is on all sites, however a more substantial search engine optimization approach is generally in order here.
Community based websites like Facebook and MySpace have their counterparts that are smaller. Many websites now are looking for the 'community' element which allows for status updates, user profiles, groups, events, photo albums, etc. These websites are vast as each page of these sites can be indexed and be a part of the bigger picture of why the site is important in the eyes of a search engine. SEO once again is very important here as is content. These sites typically have a second side which could be a corporate site and the community represents the users of their product, or it could simply be a blog/magazine type site and the community represents those who interact on the site.
These sites conduct business. They list and sell product. On Ecommerce sites, generally, there is a directory system similar to that of a catalog site wherein products are put into categories based on criteria set by those creating the site. Typically these sites allow for reviews of products listed as well give details and specifications of the products for sale. What goes on after the listing is the payment system or gateway which allows those visiting the site to purchase a product and have it shipped to their home or place of business. This requires each site to be highly secured due to the sensitive nature of the transactions and information being captured. Many times these sites are secured by certificate authentication in addition to the normal site security measures that accompany websites being built. These sites are typically large and have dynamic information regarding amount of product in stock, sales prices and changing/growing inventories.
