Websites Designed to Work Hard

We create websites that realize your goals: increase revenue, and spread information to your target audience. Services range from a tune up to a complete design overhaul. We won’t try to sell you more than you need to get the job done. Design companies that lack business analysis may make a very pretty website – that does not achieve your goals. We want your new site to do more than look pretty. Every change is optimized to meet your business goals: more purchases, calls and emails from qualified customers or donors. Non-profits, if you need to spread key information to target populations, we will make sure your target visitors not only find and use what you provide, but that we can count them for reporting.

Imagine your ideal website

  • Professional looking – Clean, crisp and easy to use.
  • Designed with your marketing or operational goals first – So no tiny grey text your customers can’t read, no matter how pretty it is…
  • Search Engine Optimized – If you build it right, the right people will come.

Imagine it easy…

Website Malware Prevention, Upgrade, Monitoring and Backup Service

Just as you need to back up data on your computer and protect it from viruses, you need to back up your website’s design and information so that it is not lost in case of problems.

Websites live on web servers that you rent space from, usually on a yearly contract. They are continuously connected to the internet, and so vulnerable to attack from hackers, viruses, or accidents like deleting or messing up content and design.

For an affordable monthly retainer, Sophia Kelly of Tailored Tech will monitor your site to make sure it is up and running, free of malware, software is kept up to date (which protects the site from becoming hacked) and backed up on a regular basis to an off site location. Usually the first to know something is wrong, she takes timely action to restore or protect your site as needed.

The service includes restoring your site from backup as required up to once per month, with additional restores available for a small fee. Other technical services are available as required as well, such as email backup and administration, website design updates, or adding additional features to your site.

You will emailed a report on a quarterly or yearly basis detailing the upgrades and monitoring work performed to keep your site safe.

Our basic service is designed for WordPress websites, including Woocommerce ecommerce sites. Please inquire for other site types, or pricing for several sites at once.

Contact us now to get set up to protect your site and keep your business running smoothly at sophia@goodthingsbetter.com or 604-813-7674 (Vancouver, Canada)

Things I do for my clients (that aren’t obvious)

The things my clients find most valuable aren’t that easy to put in a business description.

  • Investigate options they are considering with an educated, experienced eye, giving them a neutral evaluation of vendors, technologies or solutions.
  • Discover what they know about their best clients and what makes them happy, and apply that go the given situation for them, making educated targeted recommendations.
  • Save money and time for their business and staff by finding efficiencies and easier ways of doing things.
  • Find out from their staff the honest truth about what practices are actually working, actually used and actually found valuable. Similarly finding out who the key staff are to make sure a project is successful and what they need to support them.
