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 customers if they want the ability to make updates to certain areas themselves, during our discovery meeting. That way, we can design the site so that these areas will be as easy as possible to edit and update.
We're serious about client satisfaction and we want to ensure you can draw as much value from your site as possible.
Where We Draw the Line
What we aren't willing to do is to teach you how to program cosmetic or functionality changes. These elements are the 'secret sauce' of a Saltmedia website, if you will, and they're the reason people choose us to build their websites in the first place. It's like taking your car to an auto body shop and asking them to tell you how to fix the bumper and repaint the car so you can do it yourself. If everyone had the knowledge and skill to make changes to the look and function of a website, Saltmedia sites wouldn't be so valuable and we'd be outta business!
Not only does it not make good business sense for us to unveil how we build websites, but it's also not practical. Like I mentioned in my last post, to become a professional website designer, you've got to complete 2 to 4 years of school, either at college or university. Then, just like any profession, you refine and expand your skill set as you gain experience. If it was that easy to tell someone how to make changes to their site's menu, graphics or other features, there'd be no need for web design companies.
Sure, there are a lot of options out there, from DIY website templates to shady operators advertising websites at rock bottom prices, but like all things, you get what you pay for. A robust, great looking website that's Saltmedia calibre can only be created or altered by someone with the level of education and experience that our team of web designers and graphic artists possess.
So there you have it. The nitty gritty on why we're happy to teach you how to use and update your website but reserving our right to keep our secret sauce, well, secret. If you're ready to discover what it is that our web design experts can do to set you apart, online, give us a call and let's chat about your business goals and how we can help you achieve them with a Saltmedia website.
