Yay! You Finally Got A New Website!

You've been lobbying for an upgrade for far too long, you finally secured budget and found an agency to build you a custom website for your brand.

You Show Off The New Website On Social Media

Whew! It took 6 months and a lot of the teams time and energy, but the site is finally ready for launch.  Time to show it off on social media and tell all your friends, partners, customers, and all the other interested parties your company has a relationship with.

But Then The Technical Issues Start Rolling In..

After the shiny new penny effect wears off you start to see some signs of lemon.  Your search engine traffic craters, your website gets hacked, your leads stop coming in, your website loads slowly, it doesn't look right on mobile, and you can't get a straight answer on how to fix it from your agency..

How Do I Explain This To My Boss??

The budget is exhausted, the website's not living up to expectations, and it's becoming a time sink to manage.  You start to realize you picked the wrong agency.

What Your Website Looks Like.. Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg

The truth is, that there is a lot more that goes into building a successful website than meets the eye.  Many purchasers tend to overly focus on what a website looks on desktop in the chrome browser and evaluate it solely off "cool factor".  While there's value in a little bit of cool factor you're going to be much happier with your purchase over the long term by thinking about security, maintain-ability, usability, cross browser compatibility, mobile responsiveness, SEO, and how well your website integrates with ancillary systems.

In short you need to think beyond the fancy visuals (which are often not accessibility compliant) and think about ongoing operations and the practical considerations for building a successful website.

At Tortoise and Hare Software we don't just build websites, we partner with our clients in an administrative and advisory capacity to build and maintain what is often times a company's most important digital asset.

Building a website in today's world is much more than the visual design.  It's the cornerstone of your digital marketing operations.

I highly recommend Tortoise and Hare, they were able to help us decide on where to properly invest resources for our digital marketing efforts and did a great job updating our website to follow suit.

Hunter was great to work with. He over-delivered on our website redesign.  He needed minimal time to learn about my business and the aspects that I wanted to highlight on my website.  I will be working with Tortoise and Hare Software again for future website design.
