Why Hire A Professional Web Team?

Let’s be real, there are a lot of wallet-friendly DIY options out there for you to build your own website. If you’re just starting out with a new venture, we actually recommend that approach. Just keep in mind that it’s a bit like cutting your own hair. You might be awesome at it, but if you want to look your best it might be worth hiring someone who lives and breaths the stuff to help out if you can afford it.

Our team has been building high-performance business websites since 2005. Your dedicated project manager will have an MBA to help keep things real, and our team will also include people with the creative and technical skills to ensure your website looks great without sacrificing loading times. It’s surprisingly tough to find all of those elements with most vendors. It’s nearly impossible to achieve them all on your own while simultaneously running your own business.

Your website may be the first impression your brand makes on potential customers and it can make or break a sale in many cases. Let us help you look your best, nail your value proposition, and win more customers.

Needing New Business Website

The FIRST DAY our website went live my incoming call volume doubled. Clients found us and our new customers continually mentioned how much they liked our website. I was stunned!

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

Our framework has been painstakingly optimized to maximize speed and look great across all devices without sacrificing performance. We’ve got the GTmetrix scores to prove it!

Device Performance Structure Grade
Mobile 99% 100% A
Tablet 98% 100% A
Desktop 99% 100% A

Need A New Website?

If you’re looking for a new website or an overhaul on your existing site, our specially-crafted GlideStep setups may be a great solution! Pre-optimized for fast performance and SEO potential, our core framework allows us to increase our project focus on your actual content and conversion potential.

Fully-Branded Theme

While not a traditional anything-goes custom website, our framework offers a variety of customization options that will result in a unique experience for your brand.

Built For Speed

GlideStep sites are built with optimal performance in mind. Just compare how this site scores on GTmetrix against your own site to see exactly what we mean.

Security-Focused

Let us go the extra mile in locking down your website, from disabling admin capabilities and public user registrations to hardening your security headers.

Curated Plugins

We only allow a select few plugins in our ecosystem, which allows us to optimize your overall performance and security while keeping out the riffraff.

Flexible Layouts

Our core framework extends native Gutenberg posts and pages with responsive grid capabilities for incredibly flexible layout possibilities.

Customized Lead Forms

Our websites include a powerful Gravity Form setup along with optional conditional fields and notification routing to help you better quality your leads.

Custom Post Types

Whether for your staff, services, or products, we can configure a dedicated area for custom post types as well as configure custom fields.

IMGIX Integration

Our setups harness the power of IMGIX for your images, allowing us to dynamically crop and compress images exactly as the context demands.

Art Direction Support

Our custom art direction widget gives you FULL control over how your images appear on any device, meaning your site can transcend responsive.

Content Migration

We will work to migrate your existing blog content and ensure that your top indexed links are properly updated/redirected to avoid penalties by Google.

Boost Your Website With PRO Modules

New website projects do not require an ongoing PRO Module plan, but adding that service tier will allow our team to continue adding value to your website well beyond your initial setup. For those clients who decide to skip a fresh GlideStep website setup and stick with what they already have, these PRO Modules will allow our team to make gradual improvements to your existing site!

Custom Development

This special module covers occasional limited-scope custom development needs such as custom lead form development or building new website pages.

Accessibility Review

Is your site content accessible to visitors with disabilities? Our team can look for common Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) errors to help boost your compliance.

Don’t forget, our PRO Module plan is incredibly flexible. You can scale up/down and even switch functional areas at any time.

Find Out How We Can Help You

There are a lot of amazing marketing tools and website platforms out there to choose from, so what makes GlideStep different? We are a service, not a DIY tool. We don’t think you should have to spend your valuable time struggling to become your own designer, programmer, marketer, or search engine expert.

Ready to focus on running your business instead of your website? We’ll put together a free competitive report for you to check out, and if you’re interested we’ll even review the results with you. Either way, knowledge is power.

FAQs

General

Is there a long-term contract?

Nope. We're month-to-month around here. You can change your service plan at any time before the next invoicing period begins. If we are hosting your website, just please understand that site migration is not usually something that may require at least a two week notice.

What types of websites are eligible for these services?

We specialize in Wordpress websites, and most of our GlideStep setups are built on top of Wordpress. However, we do also work with clients running sites on other platforms or codebases. It ultimately depends on the specific requirements of your site and your project, but we will be happy to take a look and let you know if we can work with your existing site!

Accounts & Billing

Can we pay with a credit card?

Yes! For payments over $2,000 we do require a 3% processing fee for credit card payments. We also happily accept check payments. Invoices will be posted upon the completion of the service period or project phase.

When does the service period begin?

In most cases, we can start a new plan at any point during a month, and billing cycles will always be based on the calendar month. If we do not feel capable of reaching our support time budget within the current period, we may recommend post-dating your service start date or pro-rating the first month's service.

What is your refund policy?

We'll always work to earn your business, and will work with you if you ever decide it's not working out. But please understand that we do not offer refunds.

Expectations

Will this make my website #1 in Google?

There are no magic bullets or sure-things when it comes to marketing. Please understand that there are myriad ever-changing factors that determine search marketing performance, and specific rankings are never guaranteed. Our team will constantly strive to maximize your ROI and ensure that our efforts as well as any results we are seeing are clearly communicated to you on a regular basis. 

Can you help ANY business get to the top of search rankings?

Remember, search engines are inherently competitive. Even if you're doing everything right your competition might also be stepping up their game. Just like staying on top in your industry in the real world, it takes work to do the same in the virtual world and there are unfortunately no guarantees. Anyone that tells you otherwise is either out to take you for a ride, or is into some dark magic that will be the end of us all.
