Q&As

A website first and foremost needs to load properly and provide a clear and easy to understand path to purchasing or finding information. A website is really two things, it is a sales and information tool for the business and a resource for the viewer. A website that is easy to use, navigate and search will keep people returning.

What is the goal of the website? Is it to make a sale, generate a phone call or subscribe someone to your newsletter or podcast?

How will you measure the success of your website? Is it traffic, sales, signs up or phone calls?

I get to learn about a lot of different businesses in a way that most people do not. When we work with businesses to streamline their processes, develop content or automate sales we learn the nitty gritty of what they do, how they operate and what makes them special. This keeps my job interesting and I get learn something new every single day.

When I started 20 years ago I found there were not a lot of web companies that really took the time to understand the business they were working with. Without a deep understanding of the business how can we help you succeed? So I started my own company to help small and medium size businesses grow.

I myself have over 20 years experience in web development, design and search engine optimization. We have team members specializing in graphic design, web design, web application programming, social and digital marketing. Collectively our team boasts over 50 years experience working with small businesses, helping them reach their goals and achieve success through online marketing, system development and advertising.

Our entire team is located in Canada, in both BC and Ontario so we are more than comfortable working remotely with each other and with clients in a time when social distancing is so important.

If you are looking for a team with experience , a long and positive track record and who cares about helping you succeed with your business dream please consider contacting us at Seriously Creative.

Services

100% Canadian Web Hosting

Web hosting is a service that allows people from all over the world to view your website. As you can imagine there is a certain amount of risk that comes with that.

All files and backup files are 100% stored in Canada. Our server is physically located in Vancouver BC within a 10,000-square foot custom facility, including of 3,000 square feet of server cabinet space, electrical distribution, cooling, and backup UPS and diesel generator systems.

The Aggressive Servers Monitoring System continuously benchmarks the server’s system for web, ftp, and email performance – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If problems arise, our technicians are instantly notified, ready to take immediate and corrective actions.

Real time backups are performed in case of mechanical breakdown and real time incremental backups are performed and stored on an offsite location on a rolling 30-day schedule.

Web Hosting includes unlimited email as well as Anti-Spam software, both incoming and outgoing.

We have been working with WordPress, designing themes and building custom plugins for over 12 years. If you are looking for a basic website to promote your new business or a dynamic database driven site with unique customer areas and custom web applications, WordPress is the way to go.

WordPress started in 2003 with just a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then, it has grown to be one of the largest content-management tools in the world, used on millions of websites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

Another bonus of using a Content Management System like WordPress is we can develop a new style and design for your website while not having to recreate all of the data. WordPress is designed to easily swap the look and feel of your website allowing for more frequent refreshes without the cost of a total rebuild.

As WordPress developers we know the system inside and out. Contact us and we can answer all your WordPress and Web-related questions.

So what is SEO? SEO is really about three main things:

Fast, Efficient & Error Free Website – It seems like an obvious statement and yet we websites all the time running on so called “affordable” hosting providers that are slow, full of errors behind the scenes and believe it or not we still see many that are not mobile friendly! We used to say being mobile friendly as it’s own requirement but the internet has moved so far passed that it that we consider not being mobile friendly an error.

Content – Videos & Images are important but without words and proper formatting and design of those words the search engines will not know what your page is about. Images and Videos should include all the “Behind” the scenes tags, alt tags, title tags etc. and the filenames and descriptions should also be optimized to reflect your content. Finally your content needs to be properly structured, identified and optimized for both substance and readability. It is NOT a matter of just dropping search terms into the words as much as possible. In fact do not that or your site ranking could suffer.

Links – The more high quality websites that link to you and your content the more credible your content is in the eyes of a search engine.

Your logo is extremely important because it represents your company in just a few simple words and shapes. It is the first impression people have of your business. Your logo should be simple, memorable and communicate.

Think of the iconic Apple logo, you see that and immediately you think of quality, cutting edge technology but most importantly you know it’s Apple and it usually doesn’t even say the name. Having a logo that represents the brand of your company is essential as it is sometimes the only interaction a potential customer has with your business. Keeping that logo and branding consistent is the next important step.

If there is a nightmare logo story out there we have probably heard it! One of the most common issues with logos is the inconsistency. The most common issue we run into with clients who already have their branding in place is their lack of a vector file version of their logo. First off a vector file is not just a high resolution file. A vector file can be scaled either up or down without losing quality. This means you can take that small logo from your business card and make it into a 40 ft billboard and it will still look crisp, clear and exactly the same. This is why it is important for you the client to ensure you receive all the files when you get your logo created.

When you get a new logo designed at Seriously Creative you will receive the following:

Web versions
Black & White and Colour (if applicable)
Vector file version
Version with transparent background
Once you receive your logo kit you will be able to make or do anything you could ever want with your new logo!



You may be using your logo in many different applications and need a vertical and horizontal version, a version for a light and dark background, a version with and without your tagline, a version to put in videos, a version for screen printing and embroidery etc… If so, let us know and we can create those for you.
