Faster Website = Better Experience
The design was optimized for fluid processing, reducing page loading time and page size. Thus, allowing for faster loading times and a 100% page speed score. And, fewer people leaving the website – meaning more conversions and a better overall user experience.
Digital Marketing Strategy
Before Chariton Valley Planning and Development came to ThePixel despite their success, Chariton Valley still had a big problem: their website wasn’t serving them the way they wanted it to. They were starting at zero, with no previous digital marketing experience and next to no significant SEO rankings to speak of.
Increase Google Page Ranking
We created an SEO strategy focused on their unique market and target audience. By searching and using their local as well as national keywords Chariton can attract clients anywhere in the United States.
Professional, Enterprise-Level Brand
Given the company’s smart, educated audience, the new website design needed to communicate an air of authority and knowledge in addition to being approachable and trustworthy. The website’s content is directed by a voice and style guideline that defines Chariton Planning and Development as pragmatic, agile, results-oriented, innovative and fearless.
Data-Driven Results
We created data-driven web pages designed with SEO best practices to boost online traffic, increase google ranking, funnel users and convert leads.
Organize a lot of Content
A custom design incorporates various aspects of functionality to make a website more user-friendly. Therefore, giving website visitors a reason to stay on a website and increasing the chance that they’ll convert into a client. Custom WordPress websites are highly customizable and can be upgraded to adjust to internet changes and regulations.
