Website Design and Development

Custom WordPress Website Design and Development Services

A great website can transform your business results.

It’s simple: perception influences emotion, emotion influences action, and action influences sales. A great-looking website that works right and gives users a good experience means you convert more visitors and have more conversations.

We build great websites that look good and perform even better.

A blending of form and function that marketers dream of and that’s important, because your website is the hub of all your digital marketing efforts. When we’re building a website, we’re building the foundation for your digital success.


Clean, modern web design attracts new customers, increases conversions, and helps retain loyal customers.

Whether you are looking for a new web design or a redesign of an existing site, the collaborative team at Digital Media Works will create a website designed to help you achieve your business and marketing goals.

Our approach begins with research. We learn about your industry, your customers, and your competition.

Developing your brand story. Sometimes the best way to develop your brand story is to hear the experience from your customers perspective. After all, they chose you over your who's better qualified to explain your excellent service and products to others than your raving, happy customers? We interview your best customers to gain insight to your success!

We are one of the few agencies that use this approach to develop a strong brand message for your business.

We work with you to craft the right message – simple and clear – a way to tell your story that will appeal to the customers you most want to reach.

Only then does our web design process focus on layout and site navigation, visual elements such as photos, colors and typography.

Whether you are looking to build a new website or seeking a website redesign, we'll work with you to craft a unique and flexible site, one that suits your needs today, and is prepared to help you grow.


Research and Strategy

It begins with research. What exactly are your most important prospects typing into search engines? Where else are they searching for solutions? Who are your strongest competitors? How are they beating you and what can we do that will help you get ahead of them? Who is in the next wave of competitors who have only begun to climb in the ranks and how can we outmaneuver them?

Interview your clients and customers. Sometimes the best way to develop your brand story is to hear the experience from your customers perspective. After all, they chose you over your who's better qualified to explain your brand to others than your raving, happy customers?

We are one of the few agencies that use this approach to develop a strong brand message for your business.

Get the right people to your site. Driven by this data and the information we learn about your customers, your project leads craft a strategy designed to attract your most desired audience and outshine them in stating clearly the core value of your offering.

Show them you're the best choice. Can you describe your core value proposition in 5-7 words? Studies show that’s about how long you have to grab attention. If you work with us on messaging, we’ll help you craft that marquee headline that grabs attention, sets you apart, highlights your strengths, and turns visitors into prospects or fans.

What values or features resonate with your audience? How do we highlight your competitive advantages in a way that feels easily digestible to your visitors and inspires action?

Website Requirements and Design

Your project’s design team gets to know your customers through the customer personas we uncover during our work. Are your customers seeking a quick, simple solution? Or do they crave in-depth information?

Are they searching for an authority in the field to guide them through a complicated process? Or is this an impulse-buy, driven by delicious desire?

Since your website is the first place many people interact with your company and your brand, the site will present a positive experience. Thoughtful details show prospects you care about every aspect of their experience as your customer.

Clean, modern design shows you value good taste and respect the relationship you are beginning with your customer. Your investment in professionalism online inspires trust and confidence.

Many purchase decisions are driven by emotion. Great style evokes a feeling — creates a culture — and sparks an emotional connection.

Responsive Website Design

What’s responsive website design, you ask? It’s an approach that ensures your website is mobile friendly – optimized for viewing, navigation and interaction no matter what device is being used. And if you’re wondering why that’s important, consider that mobile browsing and search are going through the roof, and search engines like Google now base their ranking in part on whether a site is responsive or not. Yikes! That means your website is penalized if it’s not mobile friendly.

Flexible Editing Tools

We work with the most popular content management systems in the world. But most of our clients use WordPress CMS.

Modular Design
Visual drag and drop editing

Since WordPress CMS is a fully-managed Content Management System, no IT resources are required to manage your marketing website. It empowers marketers to tell your story and make changes without asking permission from I.T.

Flexible layouts while preserving your brand. Sites built using visual drag and drop editing blocks ensure you have maximum flexibility to add new pages, move things around, and adjust your message – while the back-end styling system ensures that everything you and your team create is always on brand.

Integrates with your Favorite Software. Our developers integrate WordPress CMS with lead generation forms, marketing software, payment forms, analytics, and more from third parties.

The result?

Your new business website will be easy to use, very flexible and completely scalable, with a unique look that carries your company branding to present what you sell in the best possible light. You’ll score the hat trick of instant credibility, better sales and bottom-line results – and you didn’t have to do a thing.

Questions? We have answers...

How much does a website cost?

To provide you with an accurate price, we complete a discovery session to learn about your business, your industry and your goals. A price range is between $4,000 - $7,000 for a website. For eCommerce websites, you can check prices out over here. 

Membership and Realtor websites are more customized. Pricing is between $5,000 - $10,000. 

Do you make eCommerce sites?

Yes. Digital Media Works does develop eCommerce websites. When developing websites on WordPress, we like to use WooCommerce as it has the most options available and is user friendly.  As an alternative, we can also build out your eCommerce website on Shopify. To learn more about eCommerce websites visit our eCommerce page.

Who builds your websites?

We have our own team of writers, developers and designers right here in British Columbia. We do not outsource your project, period!

How long does it take?

Digital Media Works begins every new project with a discovery session and assessment to understand your business, industry and the goals for you and your business. It's been our experience that taking this extra step reduces delivery time by 50%.

Typically, we can delivery a website in 5-7 weeks - completely installed on your domain, tested and fully optimized.

How do you keep projects on track?

Right from the beginning, you will be provided a schedule with timelines. This includes all the assets from your side as well as milestones from Digital Media Works. You'll be assigned a project manager - the project manager will maintain communications with you throughout the entire process to ensure we keep to the schedule.

What is Conversion Rate Optimization?

Conversion rate optimization (CRO) is the systematic process of increasing the percentage of website visitors who take a desired action — be that filling out a form, phoning you for an appointment, downloading an ebook, becoming customers, or otherwise. The CRO process involves understanding how users move through your site, what actions they take, and what's stopping them from completing your goals.

What is a conversion?
A conversion is the general term for a visitor completing a site goal. Goals come in many shapes and sizes. If you use your website to sell products, the primary goal is for the user to make a purchase. If your a service business - it might be to book an appointment online or phone you. There are smaller conversions that can happen such as signing up to receive emails.

Joe is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to better marketing your organization through the website. We couldn't be happier with the look and functionality of our site. In addition he provided us with training on how we can manage the pages of our site on our own and make small to medium size changes on our own time. Thank you Joe for your direction and professionalism!
