Content management

When we create a static website for you, we will also add and format your web content. This includes adding text and images supplied by you to each page, cropping and resizing images where necessary, banner creation, formatting text appropriately and adding descriptions and captions to images. We can also help with any third-party add-ons you require.

If you choose to use a content management system, such as WordPress, Joomla! or eCommerce software, you will be able to manage your own content online. However, if you don't have time to add your own content before the launch of your website, we can do that for you as part of the web design and developement project.

Whether you have a static, CMS or eCommerce website, we also provide post launch content management so that your website is regularly updated with new content that will keep your visitors coming back.

Kaz Design Works also provides basic web content editing services (proof-reading and minor edits) in-house or can recommend a professional web content writer and/or editor to help with writing and editing your text. We can also recommend professional photographers if you need high quality custom images or can source royalty free stock images to use on your website.

Need extra features on your website or blog?

In addition to website design and CMS customizations, we can create add-ons or source and customize third-party plug-ins that provide more functionality to your website and a more interactive experience for your website visitors.

Before hiring us to create and develop your website, let us know which interactive features you need, such as drop down menus, tabbed, collapsible or accordian panels and forms, image sliders, image galleries, flip books, and contact or subscription forms, and we can create and add them for you.

We can also convert, optimize and add videos or embed YouTube videos and Google maps into your web pages. We also provide photo editing (cropping, resizing, optimizing). However, we do not provide video creation services, but can recommend companies that specialize in these services.

Some of the add-ons we can create for you are:

  • Image Slider creation
  • Photo Gallery creation

  • Video conversion and optimization

If you need any of these additional features contact us now to discuss your needs.

We provide on-page search engine optimization to help visitors find your website

When you hire us to design, redesign or update your website, we use best practices to ensure your website meets the accessibility standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and provide on-page search engine optimization to help visitors find your website.

This includes using valid HTML and CSS code, adding clearly visible navigation and links, optimizing images and videos to lessen load time, using well formatted text, as well as alt descriptions and captions to images and videos that can be read by screen readers.

In addition, we also check browser compatibility and for broken links, and if required can scan your content for keywords and phrases, and ensure they are added in the head area of your website (title and meta tags) as well as page titles, sub-titles and in image and video captions. We can even write or edit your meta descriptions, if required.

These practices make your website as user-friendly as possible, and in addition make your website search engine friendly. Not only that, but we provide most of these services at no extra cost when you hire us to design and develop your website.

What is SEO, why it is so important and what we do ?

Website maintenance and updates

It is important to keep your website current and up-to-date, not only to encourage repeat visits but to aid search engine optimization.

Google and other search engines periodically index your site and crawl through the pages. If your website is not updated regularly, the search engine spiders or bots somehow know and "decide" that your website is dormant and stop indexing it. It's therefore important to update your content regularly.

We also recommend that you periodically analyze your website to determine how effective your key phrases are. Google Analytics and Insights are a couple of useful free tools you can use but there are several internet marketing companies that offer additional services, such as key phrase conversion. If you've had a drop in visitors, click through rate or conversions, perhaps it's time to change your content.

You should also back-up your website files and data after any major content updates. CMS websites and plug-ins are constantly upgraded to improve security and features and will need updating regularly. Before and after any software or plug-in updates, you should always back-up your website to ensure you do not lose your data and files if anything goes wrong during an update.

Kaz Design Works can help you with web content updates, back-ups and software updates. Ask about our pay-in-advance updates and maintenance packages. Contact Kaz Design Works now!

One-on-one Consulations

If you are unfamiliar with the content management system used for your website or online store, we offer one-on-one consutations with basic instruction to get you started.

If you are using WordPress, we can show you how to navigate your way around the dashboard, how to add and edit pages and posts, upload, align and edit images, where to create categories and custom menus, and how to add and edit widgets.

If you are running an online store, we will show you how to find, set-up or edit modules and add them to your site, add and edit categories, products and images, add information to pages, change page templates and rearrange your page layouts.

Kaz Design Works offers one-on-one consultations in person, via Skype or over the phone to help you learn the basics of WordPress and other content management systems.

Even if we have never used your specific CMS, we have the capability to become familiar with it and then show you the basics.
