Content Management Systems
A content management system (CMS) lets you update your own website with little or no technical knowledge. With a CMS you’ll update your site more frequently, and that’s a good thing.
We have worked with many different content management systems over the years, and we have some favorites. With our preferred CMS tools, you don’t need to pay license fees or install any software on your computer. Everything is done through your browser.
At the moment, our favorite, and most widely used today, open-source platform is WordPress. This can be utilized as both a content management system, as well as a blogging tool.
We can help you design and develop your ecommerce website as well as advising you on the best practices to get your online business jump started. We are experienced with integrating an ecommerce solution to get your online store up and running in no time. From Miva Merchant shopping carts, to open-sourced carts, we can guide you in the direction to fit your business.
We can provide the following e-commerce solutions:
- Unique store design
- Turnkey solution to have your store up and running
- Product catalog development
- Shopping cart customization
Logos, Ads, Marketing Materials, Invitations & More
Our services are not limited to just websites. We also design logos, print materials, brochures, online banner ads, and more!
We love designing on paper, just as much as online. Are you in need of a new logo, or perhaps an ad for the local newspaper, or a magazine? We can design an ad just for you and your business.
From letterhead, to business cards, and brochures, we offer custom designs for your print & marketing materials. Yes, we also make pretty invitations, announcements, holiday cards and more.
Search Engine Optimization & Search Engine Marketing
There’s an art to optimizing your site for high visibility and attracting the right kind of visitors. You want people who are really looking for you and what you offer, not people who bounce away in two seconds.
Foliage Web Design provides search engine optimization (SEO) to clients who want to increase the quantity and quality of their website traffic.
The ideal time for SEO is at the beginning of a website redesign project, but we can provide help at any stage.
- Keyword list building
- Meta-data development
- Integration strategy
Want to know who is coming to your website and why? Want to know what people do after they arrive on your site? Analytics reports will provide valuable insight into what goes on your website. We can help you understand:
- Which search engines people are coming from
- What search terms people used to find you
- Which third party websites people are coming from
- Which pages are most popular
- Which pages have the highest bounce rate
- What is your conversion rate relative to your goals
- What clues can help improve pay per click campaigns
We’ll get you setup properly in Google Analytics so that you get answers to all these questions and more.
Social Media & Marketing
Social networking has taken the world by storm. There are so many dimensions to it, and social media marketing is still in its infancy. We’ll help you find what will work for your organization so you can get into the fray.
- Social bookmarking
- Email Campaigns
Blogging can be a great way to bring a voice (and a little personality) to your organization. When done properly, a blog can increase your visibility and attract repeat visitors to your blog and your website. We help our clients determine if a blog is appropriate for them, and help implement it when it is.
Social networking platforms like Facebook and Twitter are continuing to increase in popularity. Facebook advertising is proving to be highly targeted and cost effective. Businesses and professional organizations can get the benefits of “being social” with our help.
The social media landscape continues to evolve rapidly. We stay on top of new technology and new uses, always ready to recommend something when it serves our client’s mission.
