Web Development

Your website is the epicenter of all your marketing efforts.

If people want to know more about you, they look you up online. So, how do you make your website into something that gives your target market a reason to keep coming back? You follow good UI/UX — that is, user interface and user experience. You create a design that draws people in. You make the website easy to navigate. You write content that aligns with your message and positions you as an expert in the industry. And you call out specific tasks or calls to action that help guide visitors on their journey. Fortunately, McD Digital started doing that just as things were taking off in the ‘90s and we continue to stay leaps ahead of our competition in web design and programming today.

 
 

 

Are you using your website as a business tool?

Good website design starts with two key components: form and function. What you did in may have worked well at the time, but you can’t tell users your business is a dynamic, cutting-edge company if your website is stuck in a time warp — a lot has changed since then. So, unless you’re specializing in “all things retro,” ask yourself these questions:

“Is my website clean, modern, and engaging?”

“Am I able to use my website as a complete business tool?”

We find your end goal and bring it to life.

When McD Digital crafts a new website, we start by asking the questions: What do you what your website to accomplish? How will it play a role in your overall business functions? What style, tone and mood do you want to convey? Most importantly, how will your website connect with various target audiences? Our award-winning team will bring your site to life with a custom, mobile-first design. From color choices to content layout, every element will be strategically crafted and purposefully placed to create a user experience that invites interaction on any device.

And yes, we write content. In fact, we have a proven team of writers who know how to tell your story!

Anyone can use a drag-and-drop page builder app. You don’t have to sacrifice form for function. Don’t you deserve to have something truly amazing?

Our process

How does McD Digital use digital magic to help you convert leads to sales? We apply three key elements to every website to ensure your users get the very best user experience possible.

 

 

Every good journey needs a carefully thought-out plan. That’s what information architecture is all about. The McD Digital team starts by looking at your existing content and creating a logic-based design that highlights key areas and value-add experiences, plus recommending any areas we think need to be added.

Knowing what you want users to do when they get to your website is just as important as a stunning design and content that keeps their attention. That’s why McD Digital makes user flow mapping a high priority. We’ll make sure that no matter where users start their experience on your site, there are clearly defined paths to learn more about you, reach out, and engage. The result — we’ll be able to measure how effective your website really is. And if something’s not working? We change it!

More than half of your website traffic will come from mobile devices. Let that sink in for a minute. More than half — and that number continues to grow every year. That’s why when we design our websites, mobile is always at the forefront. Responsive web design is a cost-effective solution that provides users with a seamless experience between desktop and mobile devices — and helps improve your results with Google too! We just so happen to be experts in creating and transforming sites to be 100% responsive. One site will serve them all.

Content Management System Options

Our custom content management system (CMS) websites can give life to any creative design or website need — and we work with your budget to make your vision a reality. In fact, we’re so committed to helping you stay on budget, our front-end developers and programmers have created four CMS options to choose from: WordPress, Webflow and PHP-based McD Content Management Systems (proprietary or non-proprietary). All our systems put the power of control in your hands to create and update as many pages as you need. We’ve developed a core set of modules and plugins that solve specific content, data collection, and interactive challenges.
