Your business needs a captivating and easy to navigate web design to be successful with your marketing strategy.
Exceptional web design is important because it’s a crucial piece of your inbound marketing strategy. Once we design your website, the next step of your website marketing plan is to develop a content marketing strategy. Therefore, your website content should be top-notch, your website SEO should be meticulous, and your navigation should be clear. You’ll need a web design agency that is experienced and knows what they’re doing. A web designer like Cole Don Media.
However, if your business serves a local market like Longmont, Denver, or Colorado Springs, we want your local SEO and website information to effectively reflect your area so you can bring your customers to you. Our web designs are equally matched by our SEO expertise.
Websites have heavily evolved from their humble beginnings, largely due to portable devices and smartphones. Additionally, it’s important to know that in today’s fast paced environment, you are required to have a speedy and mobile responsive website if you want to boost your conversions and lower your bounce rate. Due to the evolution of web design, Cole Don Media specializes in creating one-of-a-kind high performance web environments that are user friendly and mobile optimized.
- Brand Discovery: The first step in my web design process is to take the time to understand your brand’s core values, mission statement, and unique selling point (USP). Our fully comprehensive creative brief will ask the right questions to get us started on your brand discovery.
- Wireframe: The next step in our process is to start fleshing out the layout and user experience for your site via wire framing. This helps us setup your page structure and flow. At this point we will develop a mockup of your site visuals to send to you for review. This is where you will have some input so you feel involved in your web design.
- Development: Once we’ve finalized your web visuals and layout, we will start working on developing your brand new website. This includes setting up your host and domain, designing, copywriting, and optimizing your website for Google.
- Launch: Your website is a go! Now that we’ve launched your website it’s time to share your newfound success with your friends, family, and potential clients.
While we do basic on-page SEO as we build your website, there are additional off-page SEO tactics that we employ to increase your Google rankings. Check out our SEO services here to see how we can help your brand. If you’re looking for a bigger boost in traffic, pay-per-click advertising can increase the chance of finding a potential client.
Fully responsive means your website adapts to the users environment in which it is viewed. The number of mobile users is growing at a rapid rate. As humans, we love the accessibility and mobility that technology provides. Therefore, all websites created by me are mobile optimized for both phones and tablets. We implement responsive breakpoint CSS designs so your website looks great at any resolution.
Search Engine Optimized
Basic SEO services are applied to your website as we build it such as keyword optimized copy, metadescriptions, URL slugs, image optimization, and more. However, there are additional SEO tactics that we can employ on a regular basis to increase your Google rankings like blog posting, backlinking, and other factors that drive traffic to your website.
Professional, consistent, and branded content creation is vital to your website’s success. Our web design agency provides packages that include more than world-class design and image editing, we also write keyword optimized content based on your products/services and unique selling point. This helps your customer know what service or product you offer and why you’re different.
Award Winning Hosting
Our web design packages include 1 year of premium WordPress optimized hosting. The servers are not only secure, they’re blazing fast!
If you’re looking to utilize another platform such as Wix or Shopify, we can customize your web design quote accordingly.
Faster load times equals lower bounce rates and higher conversions.
Great website content will only go so far, it also needs to be useful. You need to focus on having a deeper understanding of your customer and their journey to your brand’s product or service.
What do they need? What do they value? What are their abilities? What are their limitations?
What website CMS and hosting solution is best for me?
Wix is easily one of the simplest website WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editors on the market today. Due to the large amount of available templates, it has exploded in popularity. Wix allows for complete control over things like mobile design and element placement/layout. Cole Don Media can easily transform an average website into a thriving online Wix environment!
Weebly is another drag-and-drop editor that doesn’t quite have the same robust website template options that Wix or Squarespace does, but still provides a decent selection. While you may not have the same template selection as you might in Wix or Squarespace, you can still create a unique and captivating website or e-commerce store with Weebly.
Shopify is the ultimate hybrid shopping experience. It keeps track of inventory whether you’re selling online or in a brick-and-mortar store. Shopify features an app that allows you to sell and take payments in person. Shopify also has an integrated easy-to-setup payment gateway and allows for several different payment options such as PayPal.
WordPress is easily the most widely-utilized and profound CMS on the web. WordPress has the largest selection of templates and plugins available without a doubt. While some may be free, you will most likely end up paying for a template or plugin- and they vary in price.
WordPress has two options; You can purchase a hosting plan on wordpress.com, or you can host your own with wordpress.org. While wordpress.com isn’t the easiest hosting option for your wallet, it does come with some robust features and the best live chat support I’ve ever used.
If you want a third party host, wordpress.org gives you full control over your website and allows things like FTP uploading. WordPress is also great for scaling and adding e-commerce functionality to your site. We also have extensive experience setting up WooCommerce for several online e-commerce retailers.
You have a brand, now you need an expert web designer
A website is often the first impression a user will have of your brand. This makes the content and design of your site critical factors in conveying professionalism to users.
Reach new audiences
Having a professional web design helps your brand reach new customers that a brick-and-mortar simply can’t do on its own. Getting found on Google requires help from a knowledgeable web design agency.
Showcase your product/service
A website gives you space to showcase your products and allows you to provide them with all the information that they need to know. It gives you ample opportunity to entice your customer into buying from you.

Our collaborative and results-driven approach means our web design agency goes to great lengths to ensure your website not only looks great, but also delivers leads and sales. Using responsive web design not only makes it easy to share your content with your audience, it makes them more likely to purchase your products or services.
The perfect web design process
Don’t worry — we’re not a “cookie-cutter” web design agency. We want to partner with you to get your company’s brand message out to the world in a creative way. We begin our web design process with a consultation. We want to figure out the scope of the project. How many pages will your website have? What type of images or content will you be providing us? What type of aesthetic are you looking for? Modern? Clean? Edgy? Boho? Our expert web designers can craft any type of website. We’ll get together to have a conversation about your vision for your website and reaching an understanding about the desired end result.
Architecture is at the forefront of any project that we work on. Laying out a strong structure for the website is essential before you even think about producing content or building your website. Therefore, one important aspect of designing and developing a website, whether large or small in scope, is wireframing. Website wireframes are essentially layouts for the main pages in a site. These plans help us think through an intuitive design structure and create a foundation on which to build our designs. While it may not sound glamorous, having a clear understanding of how each page relates to other pages means that the final product will be easier to build and maintain, as well as being more visitor friendly.
The writing on your website is one of the most important aspects of your business that you control. What you say, how you say it and when you say it can drastically improve your conversion rates and search engine rankings. Our web design agency has professional SEO copywriters who can help you craft the right words for your audience and your business goals. In order to create compelling content, we will need to understand your industry in its entirety by conducting in-depth research into your services or products to convey your unique selling point.
Our Colorado web design agency has fun designing new websites, especially yours. We find all the right components to make your website stand out, sell your product and/or get more customers. The visuals of your web design will mostly come from your branding- colors, typography, tone of voice. This helps us keep a consistent and clear message with your brand throughout your new website or eCommerce store. We don’t use premade templates- our design agency creates custom visuals for our clients whether they choose WordPress, Wix, or even Shopify as their platform of choice.
Now that we’ve created the perfect web design, we must test every single piece of it to make sure it’s functioning like it should. We run a bunch of tests with the ultimate goal being to catch as many bugs as possible. We double check every link and button, mobile responsiveness, form submissions, and more. Our website testing is extremely thorough because we have the best and most foolproof methods.
After months (or years) of planning, development, design, editing and polishing, you have a website up and running that does everything you need it to do. You’re now in a position to tell the world about it as you launch your site into the wild blue yonder. It’s time to make your announcement on social media, time to tell your friends and family, because you should be proud of your accomplishments and making it this far.

Web Design & Development FAQ
As a Longmont, Colorado web designer, I are more than happy to provide in person website consultations. If you’re based anywhere along the Colorado Front Range such as Fort Collins, Loveland, Longmont, Boulder, Denver, I would love to discuss our website proposal and go over your business needs and deliverables.
CMS stands for Content Management System. Essentially it’s the backbone to your website which allows you to edit and display content to your users.
Content management systems range in features and design styles so it’s best to research which one will suit your needs best. If you need help deciding, I offer free consultations!
I work in a variety of CMS’s such as Wix, Weebly, Shopify, Squarespace, and WordPress. However, my preferred CMS is WordPress for building websites. It’s extremely customizable for almost any web project.
Although, if you need to update content yourself and just want a great web design foundation, I recommend Wix, Weebly or Squarespace for their easy to use interfaces.
Website performance greatly affects your user bounce rates and SEO rankings. I highly recommend a 2 second load time or less, especially for eCommerce sites. Your target audience is less likely to stay and read your content or purchase your product if it’s taking too long to load.
I only charges an hourly rate for website maintenance needs. Websites can experience technical issues that require a knowledgeable web expert to diagnose and fix.
I can help with things like:
