We use a plethora of tools and CMS platforms that are invaluable in building quality websites and keeping our processes effective and efficient.
When a framework promotes itself as “the Web Framework for perfectionist with deadlines,” our ears perk up. A robust, reliable, cost-efficient and well-maintained web development framework, Django is used by a growing list of companies including Google, The Washington Post, PBS, The Discovery Network and National Geographic, to name a few.
As one of the most effective and widespread web platforms, WordPress is our preferred pre-fabricated CMS. Perfect for the less complicated sites we develop, it’s a cost-effective and easy tool with a great support network including a worldwide base of innovative developers. WordPress also allows for great SEO tools to be build right in, and is a phenomenal blogging platform to generate quality traffic.
This web-based project management tool has become a very effective way for us to communicate with clients. More than just messages, we can send and receive files, manage timelines and keep all communication about a project in one place. It’s completely secure and so easy to use.
When it comes to web data gathering, Google leads the industry with its free, scalable and easy-to-use analytics tool. It allows you to track information about your website in incredibly sophisticated and customizable ways. The proper interpretation of all that information helps you make the right decisions about what to do next based on your audience’s behaviors.
This extremely powerful and reliable data storage and retrieval service has the benefit of also being very inexpensive. For our clients who need to store large files like imagery, audio and video, the Amazon S3 service is our preferred choice. It’s remarkably secure, seemingly bottomless and more cost effective than any other service we can find.
There are plenty of email campaign management companies out there but few truly good ones. First and foremost, MyEmma gives us the most flexibility with the management of databases and lists, as well as the design of emails. Almost equally important are the powerful analytics our clients get from their campaigns in easy-to-read and understand reports. It works great inside and out.
As the world’s leader in Internet hosting services, all Rackspace does is hosting. They have unbeatable uptime guarantees and 24/7 support. We use them to host any client’s site that is hosted with us. Plus, as our client, you can rest easy knowing that we’ll talk the tech with them to make sure your site stays up and works great.
