First impressions count, and LaunchDM is passionate about making your business look good on the web. We’ve helped thousands of businesses get online since 1997 including many businesses here in Harrisburg and Dauphin County.
It’s critical for your website to deliver the information your users want – in the most digestible way possible. Studies tell us that internet users spend fewer than seven seconds on 90% of the websites they visit – seven seconds! This means you have to instantly capture their attention, tell them who you are, what you do, and why you’re their best choice, or they may leave and never come back.
Skillful web design and development require a synergy of technical expertise and artistic excellence. For your brand to flourish online, your website will need to look appealing (design) and be easy to use (development). We want to understand you and your business, your industry and target audience, and your competition to ensure that every design element we implement advances your business marketing goals.
At LaunchDM, we’re excited by every new web project we take on and inspired to create a new layer of freshness for every brand – like the air you breathe while jogging along the Susquehanna River at City Island or those to-die-for Belgian chocolate crepes at Au Bon Lieu – FRESH!
There are many components of web design and development, but everything boils down to the usability of your site. User experience design is about addressing the needs of your users to give them an interface that’s comfortable and maybe even fun to use. This includes aesthetic design elements, page placement, functionality, logical page structures and much more.
If you’re building a new website or redeveloping an existing one, responsive web design should definitely be part of our conversation. The “world of mobile” is booming and, no matter what industry you’re in, people are visiting your website from tablets and smartphones. In fact, 25% of American internet users ONLY access the internet via a mobile device. You need to be ready for them, but why build separate desktop and mobile sites?
Some websites are awkward to use on mobile devices and make it difficult to navigate menus, click links, and find what you want. If your site isn’t mobile-friendly, you’re bound to lose visitors who can’t be bothered with too much zooming and shrinking of text and images, or clicking through endless pages. If they’re frustrated, they’ll leave and head elsewhere.
Responsive web design is a technique that creates an optimal viewing experience on any device – computer, tablet or smartphone. We construct the website so that the text, images and navigation retract and reorganize themselves to fit the size of the user’s screen. Instead of the pixel-based grids that comprise a typical website, we utilize flexible, proportion-based grids and images. Happy users will reward your business with improved conversions.
From analyzing the requirements of your web design project, to planning, developing and supporting your site, we have the solid skills you’re looking for to help you stay ahead of the competition.
So if you are a business or local organization in Harrisburg that is looking for a professional, experienced web design agency- look no further. We can help. Call LaunchDM today on 610-898-1330.
