BDX Omaha is an industry-leading SEO firm backed by some of the leading digital marketing talent in the world. Each website we design has a strong SEO infrastructure, ensuring that it has the framework necessary to support future SEO efforts. Many web design firms do not understand the inner working of the search engines, and consequently, build websites that may hinder SEO efforts. We also understand that website traffic does not always begin at your home page. By building higher-end internal pages, overlooked by other designers, we can boost both search ranking opportunities and conversion rates. A BDX Omaha website has more to offer than our competitor's designs.
At BDX Omaha, we also understand that it is important for businesses to be able to access and interact with their own website. Our design offers an intuitive backend CMS platform through WordPress to simplify the editing process for our Clients. Other functions are also streamlined, like making website backups, building new web pages, adding/replacing images, and other common website maintenance tasks. We will be available to make adjustments for you when requested, but we encourage you to be engaged with your website as well.
How It Works: We will first collaborate with you to understand the functionality and aesthetics you are looking for with your design. BDX Omaha then creates a web development link and will build a home page and interior page for your review. After we receive your feedback, and requested adjustments are made, we "lock in" the approved look and layout, then complete the web design-build. You can always check in on our work and progress through the development link we provide you. We may also need resources from you, including images, logos, or content. Once the design is completed, we will make our final edits as requested. Testing then begins to ensure that all functionality is working properly, including web forms and special features. The website will then be moved to a permanent web hosting space. If you are hosting with us, we will include secure SSL hosting at no additional charge, as well as page speed load enhancements. Please note that we cannot be held responsible for missing design timelines if the scope of the design changes while the design is in progress, or if resources are not provided to us that are needed for the design. We will let you know if we are needing resources from you.
