  • Content
  • Most important.  Think about what you want your customers to see.  Too much text and you will bore them.  Not enough and you leave them with too many questions or confused. Our staff will work with you to build a site that is informative and easy to use for your customers and prospects.

  • English to French Translation
  • Expand your customer base. Reach everyone across Canada and world wide. There are no international boarders on the internet make sure your customers can reach you and feel comfortable in their own native language.

  • Do I need a Database?
  • We can easily add MySQL to your website.  This makes setting up an e-commerce site easy and to maintain it even easier.  Perhaps you need a blog, we can set up Word Press in just a few minutes. 

  • I need a form?  Simple or complex form?
  • Simple means a basic form that the user fills out and an email is sent to you with the data. Complex form means the data on the form is updated to a database or a script is run to do something with the data.  Our dedicated staff can help you with both.
