Once you've approved your new Website design, The ArtD'partment uses that design as a basis to construct the interactive pages of your site. It's during the construction phase that other elements (such as basic Search Engine Optimization) are incorporated into your site as well. Finally, the site is uploaded to our test servers so that you can test and review everything before your site goes "live" on the Internet.
Sites designed and constructed by The ArtD'partment include those below. Click on the thumbnail to see a larger version of the site home page; click on the link within the caption to visit the Website itself.
Once your site is up and running on the Internet, it's inevitable you'll want to make updates. We'd be happy to help! Usually, a simple email or phone call to us is all it takes, and most updates can be accomplished promptly.
Updating Your Own Site
If you have the desire and expertise to perform your own site updates, we'll be happy to give you the FTP access information you'll need. A Content Management System (CMS) also offers the ability to edit your website, but in a more restrictive environment.
There are, of course, other options for those who don't have the time to learn all they need to know, or who just want to add a few words of their own on occasion. For example, if you have a blog or a calendar you'd like incorporated onto your Website, we can embed them for you. Any updates you make to your blog or to your calendar will then automatically show on your Website.
Another simple tool we find many people enjoy is via Twitter and/or Facebook. We embed a feed (or feeds) on the home page so that your most recent postings will be seen by site visitors (these feeds also encourage visitors to follow your account).
