Essential Website Tools

Aug 26, 2018General Information, Web Design

It takes a lot of apps (tools) to build a website to meet a client’s needs and objectives. In addition, it takes years of learning and experience to understand what a client wants on their site. We participate in active listening to get the best handle on our clients’ businesses. And yes, sometimes we do have to talk a client down off the “flashing text” ledge, but we do so with care.

We love to learn new tech, standards, and theories, as well as to use the following tools.

Web Site Development/Design: We. Love. WordPress. It allows us to do almost anything when building websites and its ease of use enables our clients to maintain their own sites, should they wish to do so. We design and build sites right in WordPress, using the Divi theme from Elegant Themes. Its flexibility saves us time and our clients money!

Web Site Hosting: We personally use and recommend WP Engine for hosting WordPress websites. They provide top-notch speed, support, security, staging, and automatic backups. And like us, they are located right here in beautiful Austin, TX!

Other Tools: We use most of these on a daily basis. Apple, Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator / Acrobat, ActiveCampaign (Marketing Automation), BBEdit (Text Editor), Pipedrive (CRM), MailChimp (Email Marketing), Acuity (Scheduling), Zapier (Automation Tools), Ring Central (Communications), and ClickFunnels (Marketing)
