Saltmedia is Your Source for Quality, Affordable Website Design

Saltmedia is Your Source for Quality, Affordable Website Design
If you've been shopping around for a new website, you've likely discovered that web design services are available in a huge range of prices. Like anything else you buy, there are web design options for businesses with really small budgets and basic online needs to those with large budgets that require very complex sites and everything in between. And, just like anything else, you get what you pay for, which means that developers who charge rock bottom prices aren't going to provide you with a site that's robust or customized to serve your specific business needs. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule; while Saltmedia websites can come in a wide range of prices, we offer web and graphic design at rates that are comparatively affordable, and that provide much more value for your dollar. Let's take a closer look: Our Knowledge & Experience Saves You Money We've stacked...

We Won't Give Away the Secret Sauce!

We Won't Give Away the Secret Sauce!
One of the things that sets our Grande Prairie web design company apart is that we're willing to take the time to teach our customers how to make updates to content and images, once their sites go live. Of course, for those who wish to take a more hands-off approach, we're happy to make updates on their behalf, but if our customers want to be able to add new blog articles and other content to their sites themselves, to update their photo galleries with new images and share information on special offers or products and services, we'll show them how. As your website designers, our job is to not only build you a super slick website that's going to perform exceptionally well, but to teach you how to use that website and update it regularly, if this is something you wish to do. In fact, we ask all of our...

You Get What You Pay for, Especially with Website Technology

You Get What You Pay for, Especially with Website Technology
Over the last few weeks, we've been answering the question 'what does a website cost,' and specifically talking about what it is that you receive at various price points. If you remember, I used the car analogy; even though you can find very cheap or even free (DIY) web design services, what you receive in the end is the equivalent of an old junker car. Today, I'm going to talk a bit about website technology and how, like everything else in the website world, you get what you pay for when it comes to the technical aspects of your website. While people are often more concerned about how their new website will look, what's under the hood will make all the difference as far as user experience and overall website performance go. Sure, looks are important, but if you've got a great looking website that is slow to load, clunks...

Are Top Level Domain Names Worth the Investment?

Are Top Level Domain Names Worth the Investment?
To continue with our 'what does a website cost?' blog series, today we're talking top-level domain names, and why they may or may not be worth the investment. If you're wondering what a top-level domain (TLD) is, it's basically the part of the domain name that comes after the dot. So, for instance, while .com or .ca are pretty common here in Canada, there's also, .net, .org, .biz, .info, and many more. In fact, TLD's have attracted a lot of attention over the years, mostly because some companies have literally spent millions of dollars on their domain names and obscure TLD's in particular. Yup, that's right, unique TLD's have taken the internet world by storm and you, too, could own a .salon or .pizza domain name - if you're willing to pay for it! It goes without saying that your domain name is an important part of your website design....
