When it comes to building your online house, it needs to have a solid foundation. Your custom designed website from Maine Street Marketing will be your solid online foundation. We work with you hand and hand to develop a responsive site that can be easily viewed on all devices, including smart phones! Our websites include copy writing services, because “Content is King/Queen”. If you are looking to sell your product and/or services online, we offer e-commerce sites that are credit card enabled.
Once your website is built, it needs to be hosted on a platform. The proprietary platform we subscribe to is based in Las Vegas, NV in our ultra-secure server facility with tiered, high-performance Dell Power Edged servers. This platform has been around for over 15 years and has been upgraded at no extra charge to our clients. Our clients have peace of mind knowing that their website platform will stay up with the times and not become outdated. One of the most recent upgrades is the addition of a full suite of effect tools that add motion to your site. The most significant has been the transition to a responsive website platform. Google has come out and said that websites need to be responsive to all devices, desktops, laptops, tablets, mini tablets and smart phones. The days of a separate mobile website are over. The sites we build use the same information, however, it conforms to the walls it is given based on the device the person is using.
Remember without a website you are considered “homeless” on the World Wide Web. Yes, some businesses have Facebook pages and other social media pages, however, you have little control over how those sites are managed. Do not get me wrong; having a presence on social media is important, and can add value to your online experience. You need to have both!
Below you will find a list of benefits you receive by having MSM build and maintain your website. We are so confident that you will love your website built by us that we don’t make you sign a long term contract. We want to earn your business on a monthly basis.
