Even though this is my first blog article on our new blog site it is not my first blog article ever. Over the last 10 years I have written hundreds of blog articles for other companies. For example you can find some of my articles on Arvixe.com. After moving my sites away from Arvixe to SmarterASP.net last year (reasons for another article), I decided that it would make more sense for us to write articles on a platform we fully control. Thus www.jamesriverwebs.com/blogs was born.
This blog will contain articles for different audiences. Some will be very technical in nature (fellow developers) while others will be written to help our clients understand internet concepts and to think about new areas. So now that you know who the audience is and why we did this let me explain a little about who we are.
James River Webs.com was founded back in 2003 and our desire was and continues to be to help small business produce a very strong end-to-end web presence. I know what your thinking, there are a lot of companies out there that do that and some only charge a few dollars per month. Agreed- but no matter how you use them they all require YOU to do the work and become a pseudo webmaster. They have built tools that require you to widgitize (my word) your site. In other words, you drag and drop and you figure out the page layouts, and you clean the pictures up and you place them on the pages. you also accept that their cookie cutter SEO is enough to place you at the top. You do all of this while hoping that you are doing it right. But if everyone's site looks similar and has the same SEO applied then how can your site be better than your competitor. James River Webs, feels that we can provide the tailored environment to not only build your site but also add SEO tools that enhance your site.
We prides ourselves on getting to know your business and partnering with you to create a web site that is as unique as your company needs are. We understand many of the challenges that small businesses face because we face them ourselves. We listen to you and explain terminology and best practices while also giving you ideas that will enhance your presence. There is one caveat, because we want to work with small businesses and cater to their individual needs we do not accept businesses that directly compete with an already existing customer. For example, if we do your landscaping web site then we will not accept another client that is in mainly in landscaping. We feel that by doing so we generate a conflict of interest. After all their can't be two number ones ranked at Google.
So go ahead and drop us a note or call us (757)871-8920 to see if we can help you and check back for more great articles.
