Building and Optimizing Your Online Business for the Digital Age.

If you’re looking to create or expand your online business, you’ll want to consult professionals that speak the language of web.

Starting with creating a professional image for your business on the internet, we can then add customer interaction, business logic, and even e-commerce solutions to your site– all customized to fit your existing business tasks.

Lets get in touch and start building!

Website Design

Chances are you’ve seen a few amateur websites for local businesses in your area. Don’t be those guys!

If your business needs to be seen on the web, your worst enemy is a design that conveys a poor image. Research has shown that users are likely to exit a page within the first few seconds based on page-load-speed and design quality.

This is called a “bounce-back”.

…And the loss doesn’t stop there– search engines like Google track this data, and will actually rank your site lower on search results if the bounce-back rate is high! Both visual appeal and user-experience cannot be neglected.

The main culprits that cause poor user-experience (UX)?

  • A design that doesn’t render well on the users device (desktop/tablet/mobile)– responsive web design is a must in 2020 and beyond.
  • Slow load times– usually caused by outdated site-building tools or poor development practices.
  • Confusing Navigation– usually caused by lack of site-planning.

Aside from providing digital branding, Grand Rapids Tech builds client websites with these key elements in mind:

  • Responsive design for all devices– Desktop, Laptops, Tablets, and Mobile.
  • Blazing fast load-times
  • A focus on user-experience (UX), rather than flashy gimmicks
  • Content Management Solutions that help you get the word out!

Whether you need a re-design of your current site, or are starting from scratch, you can contact us here to get started:

Boy Scouts of America

joinscouts.michiganscouting.org

When the Michigan Crossroads Council reached out to us to build a web app for user referrals, we jumped at the chance to create something new with the latest UI and cloud computing technology.

The goal was to build a dynamic form that would allow users to choose other parents to share local Scouting events and news. The data would then be sent to a serverless backend, which would send both SMS or Email messages depending on the contact info given by the users.

Services Provided:

  • Custom Development and Responsive Design
  • Dynamic Form UI via React.js
  • Serverless Architecture via AWS Lambda and Cloudfront
  • Amazon AWS Pinpoint for cost-effective Email and SMS campaigns

Looking for a cutting edge way to reach your users? We can build automated services to send SMS, Emails, or Push Notifications based on user actions or subscriptions.
