Alliston Website Design

Although located in Orangeville, Ontario (about a half hour drive from Alliston), we have a great deal of experience helping businesses in Alliston and surrounding areas. Since 1997, we've been building websites, providing SEO/local marketing services and managing servers for both new and established businesses throughout Ontario.

Presently, we have clients in the Alliston area and frequently, we can save them time by simply using the telephone, email or skype... we usually don't need to meet regularly. This saves us time as well and we can complete your projects in a timely and efficient manner.

Alliston Business Informational Web Design

Many businesses in Alliston need website design to showcase their products and services but don't need a full E-Commerce website design. The Ian Scott Group is available for website design in Alliston for all sizes of projects, from small informational websites to full-blown E-Commerce that involve PCI Compliance and real-time credit card transactions.

Even if you are a small business and your Alliston website design project will be a small one, we'll be there to help you succeed and your website will be built to same high-standards in coding and web development as large websites.

Alliston Business E-Commerce Website Design

We've been building e-commerce websites since 1999, so we know we can also help with your Alliston E-Commerce website design. Many things have changed since 1999, including PCI Compliance and the range of payment gateways, but we can help you select the most appropriate ones for your needs and budget and be there when you fill out the application to walk you through it.

Our e-commerce web design projects are built for Alliston businesses that require robust website design, security, and the need for speed. We can integrate with many 3rd party payment processors including Moneris, Stripe, Bambora, Elavon and more.

One of the big issues with using a service like Shopify for your Alliston E-Commerce website design is that you really don't get much for the basics. If you want to add on real-time shipping costs, your monthly fees will skyrocket, taking a huge chunk of the profits. We can help you integrate with Canada Post, UPS, Purolator, and other shipping companies right within your own custom designed website.

Alliston Website Design Standards

All of our Alliston website design projects meet standards including usability, coding, security, and applying WordPress core and plugin updates. Think about usability yourself for a moment; how often have you visited a website where the font face and colour did not have enough contrast with the background colour and it was difficult to read? There are usability standards for this take into account website visitors with poor eyesight and we ensure that all of our website designs meet those standards.

Additionally, our website designs take into account those who need to use screen readers when they visit a site - and ensure that all graphics are not just optimized for speed and download times, but also make use of the "alt" tag which helps those who must use screen readers to know what the image is.

You probably have high expectations that your next Alliston web design project will meet standards and all visitors to your website will have a "good experience."

When we design websites for Alliston businesses, we don't just think about aesthetics. We think about everything that is required for a website to be effective. Many web developers today will use "site builder tools" alone for their website designs, but we know that there is much more to effective and professional website design and development.

We've been doing this since 1997.

Alliston Website Design & Website Speed

When The Ian Scott Group does your Alliston website design and development, we will walk you through the tricky issues of optimized web site speed. There are a number of factors that go into site speed and WordPress, "out of the box," does not always perform well.

There are many factors that go to website speed; hosting is one  factor but even on the fastest of hosting companies, your Alliston business website will not perform well on any website speed tests if images are heavy in file size, or you've used a website builder that is inefficient (think of the ones that claim "Features! Features! - they are usually bloated and will slow your site down).

"The Ian Scott Group" will help you on deciding on the best hosting company (or whether you might need a VPS or other Dedicated Services) in order to optimize your Alliston website design website.

We can also help you with your new Alliston website design site speed with considerations of correct DNS set up, caching, and using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for your site's static resources. You do want your site to load quickly, don't you?

Alliston Website Design & SEO Services

After your Alliston website design project has launched, how will visitors find you? Obviously, there is social media (which we can help with), but the most obvious ways visitors find websites is by using Google, Bing, DuckDuckGo, or some other search engine.

The Ian Scott Group will fully on-site optimize your website for SEO. This does not guarantee that your Alliston website design will immediately rank for important keywords as Search Engine Optimization can be a complicated affair and involves a great deal of "off-site" optimization as well.

However, it is almost a guarantee that your site will NEVER rank if it is not correctly optimized on-site (within all of your website's pages) in the first place.

Responsive Website Design In Alliston - Why It Is Important

In the "old days" of website design projects, designers and developers had more leeway in how they designed their websites. Everyone who visited a website would be viewing the site on a desktop monitor, which meant that during the design process, the website designer could create images, menus, and blocks of text pretty much anywhere, and could give precise parameters to how the webpage would be seen.

Today, with the growing use of mobile devices, this "old style" of website design no longer works. Yet, there are some web designers who still create sites using this "ancient" method. But that will result, if it is the way its been done, in your Alliston website design will not appear in an optimized manner on small mobile devices. In addition, menu items can be difficult to click and moving around the website might even be impossible on a mobile device.

For this reason, The Ian Scott Group will always create your Alliston website design as a responsive design that works in ALL devices from the smallest mobile smart-phone to tablets, and to big wide home desktop screens. Why lose out on potential new business and clients because your Alliston website design was not created properly in the first place?
