Web Design & Development

Websites That Are

Anyone can build a website, but NOT everybody can build a site that does all of the above.

Successful businesses understand that a website should be more than just a place on the internet. When built with purpose, websites can be powerful tools to help grow business and make money. Not only are they the heart of your online presence, they're often the first touchpoint you have with a new customer. How much would you pay for a 24/7/365 sales team?

When it comes to building anything, great results don't happen by accident, so trust a team with the skills and experience to do it right.

Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance

Ask anyone who has been through the launch of a web project, and they'll tell you it's not as simple as they thought. If you haven't been through a web development process, it's difficult to know what to expect. There are technical and security challenges, messaging, accessibility, and user behavior considerations, and tons of testing, because everything has to work nicely on every operating system, browser and device.

We live and breath this all-day every-day, so we've become very good at guiding our clients through the entire process. From planning, to concept, to execution, testing, to follow up. Our process and decades of experience ensure optimal results.

  • Discovery

    The first step for any web design or development project is a discovery meeting. We start by asking questions so we can learn about your goals, wants, needs, as well begin to understand your business and it's customers. After we have the complete picture, we're able to create a plan for execution and determine things like budgets and timeframes.

  • Concept

    We're designers and developers focused on business solutions, so we have the unique ability to understand and balance form and function with business goals. The concept phase is where the alchemy of creativity, experience and the expression of purpose come together and your web design/development project begins to literally take shape. 

  • Revise

    Next we refine our ideas, and to do that we’ll need feedback from you. We’ll provide the solutions, but we’ll look to you for guidance to identify any problems that we hadn’t accounted for. No one knows your business better than you. This is also the time to correct any inaccuracies in content or presentation.

  • Final Execution

    Once a final concept is approved, we begin a full web development phase where your site is built, tested, and refined all with the user's needs, mobile experience and SEO top of mind. Only after extensive review and approval does your website make it's public debut. 

  • Post Launch

    Website projects rarely go away after launch. If you're looking to optimize your site to drive more traffic, test behavior to convert more customers, generate new content, or just stay up to date with the latest security patches and enhancements, we can help.

A great looking website is just 1/100 of that story, because users expect sites should look great as well as be fast, safe, easy to navigate, answer all their questions, and give them easy ways to communicate with your business.

All our web projects are grounded in strategic thinking, and built with optimization and performance at their core, and we teach you how to use it so you're empowered to grow your business online.

Custom WordPress Website Development

Often we work with companies who already have a strong brand and sometimes their own in-house web team. They may love their content, but need need assistance with a visual, behavior or functional refresh.

We can work with your team to build, develop, test and deploy the upgraded web experience you need.

3thought will architect the backend features and functionalities you need within your WordPress site to make maintenance easy, and efficient, and minimize content and data redundancy. Why manually update the same piece of information on several pages if you don't have to? With a properly configured CMS you don't have to.

By working with 3thought, you get trusted advisors, not simple code monkeys.

Templated WordPress Websites

Sometimes you just need something that works and fits within a limited budget. This doesn't mean you don't deserve a website that is properly configured, looks great, and still keeps your business goals in mind. With many sites, we see this accomplished this by using premium WordPress Themes.

There are many excellent themes available that make it possible for just about anyone to make a website themselves. But just because you "can" doesn't always mean you "should." Your time is valuable and is often better spent doing what you do best. Too many times we've seen inexperience building websites lead to costly mistakes.

If you have a WordPress site that was built from a Premium theme, there's a good chance 3thought can help you transform it into a premium feeling web experience. We actually enjoy saving our clients time and headaches.
