Your web presence is just as important as any other part of your brand. In todays technological world, most shopping starts online. People search for businesses or products that they specifically need. Many times, your web presence will be the first impression a customer gets from you. This is why it is important to make sure that presence reflects what you want. or more accurately, what they want.

SOCIAL MEDIA

If you are not taking advantage of social media you are missing out on a great strategy to strengthen your brand. It is important that your social media represents your brand. You don’t necessarily have to utilize every platform, but I would suggest at least two.

Some of the most popular networks that I would suggest is Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and perhaps LinkedIn. Skilled Graphics will make sure that your identity is reflected on your social media accounts in a way that best promotes your brand.

This can be achieved by utilizing some of the following.

Our clients must have a domain registered, and Linux hosting setup, with at least one available mysql database, before we can begin working on their site. If the client does not have hosting we can host the site for you at an additional cost.

When requesting revisions, we suggest that our clients give as much detail as possible. If all you need is a change in background color, that will be counted as a revision. We have no limits on the amount of changes needed in a revision, however you are limited to only 5 revisions.
