Web development.  The best thing about it—is that people need it.  Smart brands demand it.  Growth and profit-motivated businesses will seek it out.  Branding agencies and marketing firms who want the best for their clients already have it ready in their back pocket.

Good web design cannot work without great web development, especially with the rise of mobile.

This is why our Portland web development agency, Dorey Design Group (DDG), has a team of diligent web experts equipped with latest web design, development, and digital marketing skills, tools, and resources.  We’ve been helping clients across the United States for over 16 years.

A quality business website digitally communicates value in the right light, to the right people, at the right time, right?  Our methods make this happen with actual results.

We love collaborating with creative agencies because it is a win-win-win partnership between our firm, your agency, and the client.

What do we offer versus others?  And how precisely do we help?

I’ll break it down for you to digest:

 

"How Does a Web Development Agency Help Me?"

Whether you are part of a small business or a creative marketing agency, web development service benefits you directly.

 

For Creative Marketing Firms or Branding Agencies:

• A More Complete Marketing Service Mix

Marketing is incredibly diverse, yet we see the growing importance of digital each day…gone are the days of phonebook ads and direct mail as your only mediums needed.

Nowadays, you’ve got tons of industry-varied marketing agencies who provide creative branding services, strategic planning, graphic design, photography/videography, printed ads, online ads, social media, and alas we have WEBSITES.

A Redshift Research survey tells us that about 60% of small businesses don’t have websites and one of the main reasons is because they lack technical expertise.

There's clearly a need to be fulfilled.  Why not supply the demand?

Add another weapon to your arsenal of services.

Being able to confidently accept website-related inquiries from clients creates a powerful statement that reflects positively onto your agency’s capability.  Not to mention, a complex web project means higher revenue stream with an outsourced workload, allowing your agency to focus its time on what it does best.

Essentially, we help raise the stage to turn your agency into a web rock star!

• Satisfy Clients, Bringing in More Business

Web service is the icing on the cake.

With DDG partnering on your side, we satisfy your clients with the most effective WordPress, Drupal, and CMS (content management system) web-based solutions around – and we keep it within budget, and on time.

On top of that, good word of our work continually spreads, aiding your client acquisition and retention efforts.

We get you more business in authentic fashion.

• Our Extra Incentive to Create Amazing Value

If we want word to spread of your client’s great new website, we’ll need to provide a great website.  Simple.

As web experts hungry to tackle new projects, we keenly listen to your client’s needs and fulfill them with a carefully crafted approach that produces desirable results.
 

For Small-to-Midsize Businesses:

• Better Discoverability

Who doesn’t want a storefront that’s open 24 hours?

One that communicates your business offering the way you’d like best?

Brilliant web development provides a core channel for your target audience, whether they’re on the road or at home.

• Precise Audience Targeting

Perhaps you want to target different customer types.

Maybe you have a career page to bring in applicants.

Or you’re possibly looking for new partners, vendors, or other businesses.

DDG ensures that precise user targeting is never overlooked.

• Bolster Your Brand Value

If your website is a 24/7 online storefront, it should represent your brand the way you and your customers are happiest with.

We program your website to create positive experiences, starting with the user’s first impression.

• More Conversions/Sales

Your CTA, or call-to-action, is an important element which we can help optimize in every way.

Want people to call your business number?  Book a reservation?  Fill out a webform?  Visit your store?  Place an online purchase?

Great.  With Dorey Design Group as your collaborative partner, we design and develop your website to maximize the desired user action by converting visits into sales.

 

“Why Should I Trust You?”

You should be asking this question.  There are a lot of design, development, SEO, webhosting, and other web service firms that, to put bluntly, are total rip-offs…or something close to it.

It’s frustrating and bad for business.

Frustrated Website Owner, Web Failure, Monkey Laptop

A few developers will cash out and head for the hills.  Some don’t give you the digital bang for your buck.  Others won’t help support and train clients/staff properly.  Many simply don’t fully promise what they offer due to lack of skills, patience, or incentive.

DDG is different.

We’re damn good developers.

We create valuable connections to let your business thrive.

• Web Development

Web developers are a highly sought-after business asset for a reason.  What people forget is that there are the terrible, great, and everything in between.

Lucky for you, our team of expert developers know Drupal, WordPress, and CMS web technology better than you know the back of your hand.

We make sure your website not only looks amazing, but is highly functional, as it should be.

Want a parallax scrolling website?  An interactive map plug-in?  Email automation?  Animation?  We do it all.

We’re proud of our proficiency and love our work.

• UX/UI

UX (user experience) and UI (user interface), should go hand-in-hand.

With an easily navigable user interface, users discover the desired information quickly and succinctly, no matter the device, screen size, or browser.

We rigourously test your website for quality assurance on Windows and Mac computers, iOS and Android smartphones, and tablet devices across Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome internet browsers.

A unique and fulfilling user experience entails a website that you can be proud of, your users will relish, and your business will be thankful for.

We provide exactly that.
