Web design has come a long way since the old days of the web when you simply put up some text and maybe a picture or two. These days, there are all manner of fancy tricks that the best websites can do, including things like video, interactive games and mini apps and integration with other popular websites (such as Facebook and Twitter).

In fact, modern web design has moved to the point where it’s almost unheard of to write a website “by hand” anymore (i.e. write the code for the site yourself). Today, it’s all about using a “platform” to build your site. Some of the most popular platforms are Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal. These three along with other site building programs make it possible to create the kinds of advanced websites you see today. They also make it much easier to manage your website because they have a “backend” which allows you to do a great deal of customizations which is simply not possible when the site is entirely hand coded as in the old days of the Internet.
However, even with these advanced tools, it’s often best to hire a professional web designer to help you build the site because they will understand how to offer you all the extra bells and whistles which these platforms are capable of offering.
I have Mike do my SEO I've had such success I was able to cancel all my ads in the physical books saving me thousands in advertising a year. He keeps my business first page with all keywords. Two thumbs up!
We've known Michael for several years. He's always been prompt to reply, and very quick to service. The most recent problem we had with our system required him to reformat and solve a difficult problem. He returned a beautifully working system within 1 day. Fast worker, fair pricing. Thank you, Michael! ~ Dennis & Martha
