MY COMMITMENT TO MY CUSTOMERS:
I will look after your website as if it were my own. I love to help those who do not have the expertise or time to take care of their websites. Most small or medium-sized businesses do not have in-house staff to properly look after their websites. Thats where I come in. It is a great feeling helping those who need it. I can look after all aspects of your websites giving my customers continuous support. I don't leave them adrift, as I keep abreast of all new developments and updates for your sites.

January 2021
By reaching out, I am able to help multiple new clients whose websites were badly in need of updating. These older sites were not responsive on smart devices and/or did not have SSL certificates, which are now mandatory. These were all from finding and reaching out to those Companies whose sites hadn't been updated for years. This will be especially helpful to my new clients as many of THEIR competitor's sites had been udpated.



OPTIMIZED FOR MOBILE & TOUCH ENABLED DEVICES

With responsive design your audience will always be able to engage seamlessly with your site on each of their devices, at any given time. Regardless of your industry or the products and services your company offers, user-experience on your website should be of the utmost importance.

    Stevens Gold. We took over a WIX style site the customer wasn't happy with. We recreated it as a WordPress site, with very complex Newsletter / Contact signup features. It was further complicated with DNS issues and we worked with the company to move them. They can now manage all of these themselves.

    "Daryl really took over the show and ran with it. We only gave direction and he did everything else, including alerting us to issues we weren't aware of. Top notch job from Daryl, the second time I have used him.

    Ken Watt Associates We converted an earlier version of this site into a new WordPress site. This gives the customer total access for updates although we are always here to help when they are too busy.

    "I am very computer illerate and Daryl was able to take what I wanted with simple phone calls and emails. He then created the site we wanted, as well as setting up our Twitter account.

    Erica had real issues keeping her website updated. I was able to take the site over, move it to my server and give her the time to keep it current and up to date. I then redeveloped the site for her.

    She was "over the moon" with the new look and extremely happy with Fern Web! She was especially happy with the services page we created for her.

    Daryl worked tirelessly to give me the site I needed. Even though we constantly changed our minds, he always delivered what we needed. A beautiful redesigned site, mobile-friendly and full of images and content with forms, and contact lists and services we required.

    It is a WordPress site so we can do our own updates, but he is always there for us if needed.

    We had a call as a customer wanted to move their service from another platform and we were able to look, give a quote and move the site within a few days. The new WordPress site is identical to what was working on the other platform.

    We were very happy with Daryl's quick response and guidance in the move. Thanks Fern Web.

Scalable on Devices.

Responsive websites

A responsive website will automatically resize, hide, shrink or enlarge itself to look good on all smart devices.

Today, more people view your website on a smart device (phone) than they do on a lap or desktop computer. Make sure your website is responsive or possibly lose customers. In this day and age your website must adhere to the most up-to-date configurations. If your site is not responsive you automatically receive negative results from search engines.

Smartly Coded & Maintained.

Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization or SEO is the ability to drive visitors (traffic) to your site by configuring your website so the major search engines give your company a priority ranking over others.

Easy to say, tough to do. Like other website companies we follow the requisite policies of Google and other major search engines to give our websites the best opportunities for great search rankings.

The website design services provided by our Vancouver based firm ensure the optimization of your website for better search rankings.

Warning don't enter this site.

SSL and your site

Did you know that some of the major browsers now give a warning to visitors that it isn't safe to enter your site if you don't have an SSL certificate? We can easily install one for your site if it is missing.

And if it is missing why didn't your web company tell you?

Ecommerce

E-commerce typically refers to buying and selling goods and services online, and the transfer of money and data to execute these transactions. Thats the simple part.
