Playing off a message of social responsibility, a new web development firm by a team of Stanford graduates aims to bring the personalized touch back to web design.
Sites By Hand aims to both offer one-of-a-kind web sites at affordable prices and also to give back to those who are less fortunate through pro-bono services for nonprofits.
A portion of the profits from every website purchased is earmarked for helping non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and non-profit organizations meet their web needs, according to the company."We provide tons of help to NGOs and non-profits in need of web development services," Ryan Breslow, co-founder and Head of Production for Sites By Hand, said in the statement.
Breslow said that building industry across the globe is another way to help the world in addition to their pro-bono work for nonprofits.
Coupled with a commitment to social responsibility, Sites By Hand also emphasizes the personal touch when it comes to web design.
Potential customers log into the Sitesbyhand.com website and begin the process by browsing the site's menu of offerings and selecting the services that match their needs, including a three-minute website price calculator that offers an automated estimate on the services chosen to help users plan a personalized web solution that suits their budget. But then the firm gets personal, becoming a collaboration between the customer and the Sites By Hand web team.
“From the start, each Sites By Hand website becomes a collaboration between customer and the Sites By Hand team of experts, who utilize the client's company strategy, creativity and latest trends to draft customized solutions that fit,” noted the company.
One thing that companies sometimes miss is the need to capture a visitor’s attention right away. Sites By Hand keep this in mind, making sure that web design focuses on captivating and awing guests with a vibrant, professional website that draws a visitor’s attention to the site's most important aspects right away.
"Your website can give potential customers a positive impression about your company and its expertise," noted Breslow.
Sites By Hand offers premium domain services, logo and Favicon design, professional graphics, establishment of a content management system (CMS), fast revision capabilities, complete on-page SEO, custom branded emails, professional content page writing, blog-style formatting, shopping cart integration, inventory and integrated payment systems (including PayPal (News - Alert)), search features, password protection for pages, video marketing and more, according to the company.
