Web Programming

Search Engine Friendly Design Implementation

I work with designers to put your vision on the web. If you have your own designer, need a designer or prefer to design your own site, I’ll implement your design so that it matches your design comps precisely and is search engine friendly.

There are a lot great looking web sites on the web that are virtually invisible to search engines and hence also to your potential customers. Sweet Thursday Web Development builds web sites that both match your design comps AND are search engine friendly.

Multi-Browser Testing

Your customers will see your web site on many different browsers. At Sweet Thursday Web Development web sites are tested on all the major browsers on both Windows and Macs.

I also use BrowserStack which allows me to test on dozens of browsers, tablets, and smartphones.

I no longer offer IE 6 or 7 support.

Troubleshooting

Do you have a form that isn’t working or pages that don’t work or look right in ALL the major browsers? Let me take look. I enjoy fixing problems and if I can’t fix it you won’t owe me anything.

Multi-Device Support / Mobile Websites

You need to have a mobile ready site. This used to be an option…it’s not anymore.

Mobile can mean two things: responsive design or a separate mobile site.

  • Responsive Design (my preference): With responsive design your website adjusts to the device it’s on. Whether it’s an iPhone or 27 inch screen all your website’s content will be accessible to anyone accessing your site. Responsive design is my preferred approach.
  • Separate Mobile Site: A separate mobile site can look and function quite different from your desktop site. For WordPress websites I use WPTouch.

E-Commerce Solutions

Have something you want to sell? Have an established business but haven’t taken the leap to e-commerce yet? There are many solutions for both large and small businesses.

Not sure you understand how it works? Don’t worry, I’ll keep you informed through the entire process and you’ll have a store up and running that matches the look and feel of your site.

You’ll be able to accept major credit cards, checks and keep track of all of this in a sophisticated and powerful administrative area where you can add your own products whenever you need to. Your site will be secure and your customers will be able to shop with confidence.

I use WooCommerce for ecommerce with WordPress. It’s versatile, solid and has many extensions to cover most any need.

Web Hosting

Hosting through Sweet Thursday Web Development is convenient and worry free. Sites are hosted on WordPress optimized servers, with caching services at no extra charge.

There are no surprises at Sweet Thursday Web Development. Your web site will be completed on time and on budget. If there are delays you will be notified as soon as possible.

Account Management

Your account with Sweet Thursday Web Development is available online. You’ll be able to see any work I’ve done on your site, check your balances, view past projects and make credit card payments. Your account is also available on mobile devices.

PHP Programming

Please Note: For many years I custom programmed CMS systems, but with the strides that WordPress has made in the last few years, this is becoming less and less necessary. In most cases, I can use the power of WordPress to create fabulous customized websites to fit most any need.

Content Management Systems

Content Management Systems (CMS) allow you to have control of your website. Once your site is up and running you make changes to your site through an administrative backend anywhere you have access to the internet.

I use WordPress for CMS. As noted above, there is not much that can’t be done with WordPress.

Email newsletters are a great way to offer services to your clients. Sweet Thursday Web Development can handle it all: design, testing and sending your campaign at reasonable rates. No monthly fees, you only pay when you send and on a per recipient basis. More information on email marketing »
