A Website Design Solution with Everything You Need for Success
We can tailor a solution for virtually any budget. If you're on a tight budget, you can choose from 16 pre-designed themes, each with dozens of optional backgrounds. These websites are simple, easy to navigate, search engine optimized and mobile-friendly. Or, we can create a customized website built to your specification.
It's simple, really. Our turnkey website design and development solution will build a functional and professional website that works hard—and smart—for your business. That way, you get to focus on the day-to-day operations of your business while we help make it work online.
Provide us with the information for your website, and we’ll do the rest! We provide personalized service and professional support as we create your website to your specifications. From selecting a design and proposing ideas for useful features, to creating your content and choosing a relevant web address (domain name), we do it all for you!
Here are the steps we take to make it all happen:
Interview You About Your Business
An initial one-on-one in-depth interview with a design consultant to help us learn the key aspects about your business and what your business needs and goals are.
We ask you to send us any pertinent text, photos, or graphic files that we can use for your website.
We will arrange for a photo shoot for any additional photos as needed, such as photos of the restaurant, the owner(s), key staff members, and menu items.
Discuss website details, including color scheme, layouts to fit your theme, fonts and colors, and possible content (menus, YouTube® video footage, etc.). You'll pick which of our website features you'd like to incorporate.
Research and Design
We'll compile a list of your customers most recent 4 and 5 star reviews (using a 5 star rating system) from various reputable sources on the Web to feature on your website.
We'll search the Web for any reviews your restaurant may have received from local food critics to feature on your website.
Use the information we've gathered to write copy (content), add images, and prepare a high-impact mobile-friendly website already optimized for search engines.
Within 5 business days of starting the website project, a development link will be emailed to you for review.
Website projects are completed within 1-2 weeks, depending on size of website package purchased.
Within the first 30 days following the initial set-up, you get up to three hours of free design and content changes.
Modifications and Support
We understand how important it is to keep your website fresh. We provide you with up to 60 minutes each month of free editing and design support for one year.
We'll provide a free 30 minute training session on how to use the easy-to-use website editing tool (available online 24/7/365) that comes with your website so you can make future edits if you prefer to do so yourself.
Domain name registration.
Hosting for your website.
Email Accounts associated with your Domain Name (i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org).
Google Analytics setup and maintenance.
Monthly website traffic statistics (site visitor reports).
We help your restaurant join the conversation! We'll create and help you maintain your social networking websites like Facebook®, Twitter® and FourSquare™. Posting regularly with engaging content gets more people to talk about your business with their friends. As a result, you end up reaching more people overall. Also, social media is a great way to offer Check-in Deals that can help you engage with your customers and grow your business. Did you know 80% of consumers say they are more likely to try new things based on a suggestion by a friend in social media? Check-in Deals allow you to reward loyal customers with discounts and other special offers so you can build valuable relationships with this influential audience.

Link building through relevant Link Exchange Partners. The more links (considered votes of confidence by search engines) to your website, the more relevant and popular you are to Google, which translates into a better PageRank and higher position on a search engine results page (SERP).
A Web Video is a great way of giving people an insider view of what goes on in your restaurant. Whether it’s cookery tips, interviews with the staff or an inside view of what goes on in the kitchen, videos can be a great way of enabling customers to engage with you and to give you an advantage when it comes to booking a table. More than 4 billion videos are viewed on YouTube every day, YouTube Mobile gets more than 100 million views per day (that's 5% of YouTube's total daily views), and every minute there are 400 tweets that contain a YouTube link! Video ranks best on Google and in your guests’ Facebook News Feeds.
The bottom line is videos are the most effective and most affordable way to advertise your business online.
Our Restaurant Web Commercials run 30-60 seconds long, create a great first impression, and "Wow" your potential customers. Our How-to Cooking Videos run 2-5 minutes long and not only promote your restaurant, but can themselves earn some extra dough when monetized with Google AdSense for videos and other third-party ad-servers/networks. (Click here to see numerous entertaining and affordable examples.) In addition to adding your video to your website, we'll upload it onto popular video and social media websites to help generate traffic to your website, and restaurant.
Promoting Your Website on the Web
Getting customers to your site doesn't happen by accident. It happens by having proper search elements in place so people can find you, quickly and easily.
Customers will often Google you to see how credible you are before they decide to do business with you. Being listed in the most popular local directories makes you popular and credible. It also helps you dominate search results for your business name or top keywords. These directories are high traffic websites.
For example, using Google search, it is often the case that for one keyword or term search, a restaurant will have a Google Places listing on the map, their website listing, a Yelp listing, a Merchant Circle listing, and a Facebook and/or Twitter profile all show up on the 1st page of Google's search results.
Here are the steps we take to make it all happen:
Submit your website to the top search engines such as Google®, Bing™, and Yahoo!®.
Submit your website address and relevant content to the most popular local internet directories, such as Yelp, Urbanspoon, TripAdvisor, Merchant Circle, Manta, YellowPages.com, Supermedia, Yellowbook, CitySearch, CitySlick, DFW.com, Guide Live (Dallas Morning News), Pegasus News (Dallas Morning News), Local.com and Inuit Business Directory. Already listed? No problem. We'll improve your listing with relevant content and add your website address.
Submit your menu, website address and relevant content to the most popular menu aggregators, such as Allmenus, Menuism, FoodieBytes, and Constant Contact.
Create a Google® Places (Google Local Business), Local Bing (Bing Business Portal), Local Yahoo, and MapQuest (Local Business Center) listing which will include your website address and relevant content for your business. This will get your business listed on Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, Bing Maps and MapQuest. If you're already listed, we'll improve your listing with relevant content and add your website address.
List your business location details as a points-of-interest (POI) for Garmin, Magellan, Navman, Route 66, TomTom, Nokia, Destinator, and many other popular smartphones and GPS brands. Global Positioning Systems (GPS) are becoming a major marketing tool for businesses. By adding your business as a POI in GPS mapping directories, customers can find you in their car, on their phone, and online.
