Is Your Website Design Mobile-Friendly?
According to Google: “If you haven’t made your website mobile-friendly, you should. The majority of users coming to your site are likely to be using a mobile device. If you don’t know if your website is mobile-friendly, take the Mobile Friendly Test now!” (— Mobile Friendly Websites | Google Developers ).
With 94% of people in the US with smartphones searching for local information on their phones this is more important than ever. If you can’t be found (Google penalizes sites that aren’t mobile friendly) people will wonder if your business really exists and is serious about doing business.
Our Website Design Services Are Tailored For Builders, Remodelers, and Specialty Trade Contractors
Having spent 42± years working in and/or around the building & remodeling trades I understand that the marketing needs, tools and techniques that work for a roofing are not necessarily the best working toolset for a custom home builder. A contractor who provides sub-contracting to general contractors (90%+ of construction companies are run by men) marketing requirements are going to be different from a remodeling contractor who is selling directly to homeownwers (Women initiate 80% of all home-improvement purchase decisions).
What Do Custom Web Design Projects Typically Cost?
A Basic Well Designed Website — $2,000 - $7,500
The most common type of websites we build are small 10-20 page websites that act as an online brochure with some additional functionality such as calendars, custom forms, sliders and blogs. It will serve to help brand and market your company, showcase your products and services and inspire sales as a lead generating tool. All our sites use the latest standards to allow your site to look the same on nearly every computer/device.
Website Remodeling — $850 - $7,500

All projects are custom quoted, since there are just so many factors that have to be considered but before you talk to us and we get a chance to evaluate what you have and where you want to go with your web presence you can probably SWAG figure (Sophisticated Wild Assed Guess) your development costs to be in the $850 – $7,500 range.

What Kind Of Specialty Services Do We Offer?
Our specialty where we can really help and apply all our experience in the home and garden industry as well as our expertise with Web and Information Technology is in the custom design of your company’s web site (be sure you take the time to view some of the sites in our Web Design Portfolio).
In the beginning of the web you had to hire a computer programmer to develop Web pages for your business. Then along came Microsoft Front Page, Adobe PageMill, Claris Home Page and other easy-to-use low cost Web page editors. Then another generation of WYIWYG web design tools came along like Net Objects Fusion, GoLive, and then Adobe Dreamweaver ,and a great many small businesses began to produce their own web sites.
Nowadays the web is a lot more sophisticated and it seems the loop is closing back in on itself. The tools for the professional production of a company web site are more diverse and can now command a significant investment in dollars as well as the time to learn to use them.
Whether you need a dynamic, database-driven web site, a fully-functioning e-commerce web site, or a simple brochure-ware web site, the Paradigm-360 staff has the unique mix of experience in the home and garden industry and the creative talent and technical expertise to accommodate your company’s web development needs. Our web design team has the training and experience in web development, to provide you with:

- Web Site Maintenance—Web site design, implementation and maintenance
All of our web sites are developed using industry-standard tools and are validated and tested for browser compatibility, usability and accessibility.
While we do offer a set of web site packages for starters but “One size fits all” does not necessarily apply in the grand scheme of things. Website solutions are as diverse as the client markets they serve and each one must be carefully measured, thoughtfully planned and custom-built for maximum effectiveness. It must reflect the proper personality, passion and purpose of the company and it must provide an authentic, appropriate and appealing answer for you and your audience.
