Hotline Web Design: What Clients Can Expect when They Work with Us


Hotline Web Design - Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Hotline Web Design offers website design, update, and maintenance services for small businesses in Lloydminster, Canada. Here’s how working with us looks like:

Inquiry Phase

New clients can contact us through our website for a quote or price inquiry. Generally, we offer three web design packages: pre-done website development, custom website development (with optional ecommerce capability), and web design updates (rated by the hour). We can perform the setup only (if you want to do the website maintenance after) or both the setup and maintenance. When you send us an inquiry, kindly specify the type and extent of services you need.

You may also want to include your other preferences or requirements. Indicate the budget you’re willing to work on and your deadline, or the time you expect to wait before launching the website. Likewise, you might want to outline the goals of your project or the results you anticipate from it, so we can better gauge your needs and put together the solutions that suit them.

Proposal and Payment Phases

After receiving your inquiry and reviewing the basic details of your project, we will then create a free design proposal. The client is expected to pay at least 50% of the purchase price upon receiving and approving the proposal. The balance will be paid upon completion of the website or of any desired changes.

Production Phase

We need you to complete a design brief and to detail all the content you want to include in the website, and then, we will craft your website from there. The standard digital materials or information we need include your company’s logo, brief and extended description or history, contact details and operating hours, photos and videos, and menus or catalogs. The pages on your website can also contain other items or information, such as your social media account details, testimonials from your customers, company news or promos, etc.

The Launch and Ongoing Support

You won’t have to wait long before the launch of your new or improved website. We can launch pre-done websites as early as 48 hours, and custom websites one to two weeks after receiving the information we request from you. The Hotline Web Design is also ready to help you resolve any issues or perform any updates on the design if you need or want them. Don’t hesitate to call (312) 436-0361 or email support@hotlinewebdesign.com for further questions or requests.

Hotline Web Design: What Our Mission Is, What We Do to Accomplish It


Hotline Web Design - Friday, March 20, 2015

Every company ought to have a direction, a goal, perhaps, to work toward and to serve as an inspiration in everything it does. At Hotline Web Design, our mission is to help every company in Lloydminster develop their online presence. We believe every company should have a website to present themselves and interact with all their potential customers. We know that we can make a difference by allowing our clients to be visible and appear interesting to their prospects and increase their revenue through their website.

This mission is not at all easy, even if we have a talented team of web design specialists and marketing experts. Our ultimate goal still requires us to work hard, plan strategically for each client, and strive for the success of our project with them. Here are some ways we accomplish our goal through our web design services:

Being Thorough in Determining Your Needs

Before we begin the creation or modification of your website, we first schedule a thorough discussion of your needs or expectations on working with us. We want to know what you want to get out of the project, like establishing your brand online, using your website as an online store, giving your customers a convenient portal for queries, or simply getting more prospects for your business. We also ask about your budget, any deadlines, and other important details, so we can propose appropriate solutions and meet your requirements.

Staying on Top of Trends

We invest time and resources on research and continuous trainings to be versed with the industry’s trends and stay competitive. Whether it’s a new, effective way to lay out pages or it’s a fresh twist on traditional web design techniques, we make sure we learn them or stay on top of them. These things will be advantageous for you, our client, since the result of our efforts will definitely reflect on your project and further help in reaching your goals.

Providing Exceptional Support

We always keep track of the outcomes discussed during your initial consultation with us and evaluate if we’re meeting them promptly and accordingly. We also have open channels of communication, so you can reach us when your website needs updates or repairs. These efforts only show our commitment to providing exceptional service and support, even after the initial sale.

Hotline Web Design: Get to Know the Company and Our Services Better


Hotline Web Design - Thursday, March 19, 2015

Are you thinking of creating a website for your company or revamping your old one? Do you want to wow your prospects with what they can see on your website enough to turn them into customers right away? We at Hotline Web Design can definitely help. We are experts in building or updating and launching websites for small businesses who want a solid online presence.

A Brief History

Hotline Web Design was originally founded in the U.S. to provide web design services to restaurants. In October of 2014, we moved to Lloydminster, Canada and started offering our web design services to businesses from any industry in this region of Alberta. The company is headed by Jon Vandenbrink, a veteran in the web design and internet marketing fields, and also the owner of VDB Ventures, which provides complete online marketing solutions.

An Eye for Attention-Grabbing, User-Friendly Designs

One cannot discount the importance of a well-designed website. It can affect consumer behaviour in the sense that highly influential and eye-catching features can draw customers in, while dull or dysfunctional ones can turn them away. You have to be systematic and strategic throughout designing the website—from the careful selection of colors, themes, and other digital elements to the technical programming and ingenious copywriting that goes into the website design process.

These are exactly the aspects of website design that we accomplish for our clients. We want the business to attract more customers, drive sales, and get maximum ROI from their company website or ecommerce store. To accomplish that, we are very particular in how we assess your needs or preferences and how we layout and handle the project you entrust with us.

A Focus on Customer Service

Throughout the entire history of the company, we have been committed to providing great support and prompt service to all our clients. We are always ready to receive your queries or concerns and resolve the issues, especially if you spot some errors or inefficiencies in your website or if your customers report some bugs or page loading delays.

Aside from our basic website design or updates, Hotline Web Design can also set up your social media accounts, create newsletters for you, perform SEO audits, and provide marketing consultation. You can reach us at (312) 436-0361 or through the contact form in our website to find out more.

The website design and online marketing industries are highly dynamic, and trends can change after a year or even every few months. There are also several news that are relevant to entrepreneurs using online marketing for their businesses, which could influence your decisions like increasing your budget on website design updates or allotting some of your investment on linking your website to your social media accounts.

Please check out the pricing guide (featuring each of our services, package rates, monthly maintenance prices, and other crucial details) that can be found on our website.

2. We understand that your web presence is more than just a website.

We allow more potential customers to see your brand and what you offer through your website.

We let them easily leave you their personal information, too, with strategically placed elements like contact forms in your pages.

3. We are also dedicated in providing our clients great ongoing support after the initial site design and launch.

We don’t stop once the sale is closed. We know that several business owners are not “techie” enough to maintain their website and fix bugs or latencies on their own.

You can simply submit a support ticket or call our team, and expect a quick response (within 1 business day).
