Lack of Knowledge Can Cost

Understanding CMS Development Needs and Cost

As I go into my 6th year at The Microtechs, I've seen recent trends in the Web Development industry that seem to be costing companies big bucks. The primary cause I'm seeing is still the lack of knowledge around CMS solutions like Wordpress and Joomla. Time and time again I get calls from business owners, project managers, marketing directors and the like - with a shopping list from prehistoric IT staff. Off on a hunt for mysterious skills they're told they need, companies spend tens of thousands of dollars on sub-par production and unnecessary code writing.

Powerful, Elegant and Sophisticated Design

Parallax is a difference in the in the apparent position of an object viewed along different lines of sight. The term derives from the Greek word parallaxis, meaning alteration. In web design, the parallax effect is a relatively new trend. The effect itself has been around for a while, but lately is becoming more used and talked about.

Responsive Design

Adaptive Layout for Mobile Devices

Introducing the future! Responsive Design is an alternative to Mobile - in all likelihood it will replace mobile versions completely. Responsive Websites adapt on-the-fly to browser size, repositioning and resizing content to best fit the viewing device.

Websites like Fab.com and Pinterest have made Responsive Design a worldwide sensation. Now, here at The Microtechs we are able to offer this cutting-edge Web 3.0 technology. Why create an entirely separate website and template just for mobile phones? Isn't it such a pain to have to create multiple versions of every image, just so we can view them on a mobile device?

Not anymore. Thanks to this fantastic new technology, it's not just the layout that changes "on-the-fly". Yes, it truly is impressive when you grab the corner edge of your browser and watch the website re-arrange itself as you change the size of the window - BUT, what's perhaps even cooler is that the Videos, Images, Slideshows, Slidesets, etc all resize as well.




Want to see a live example of Responsive Design?

Just resize your browser and watch the template do it's magic!

We’re headed to #LasVegas and bringing some of our Silicon Valley tech to the great state of Nevada. I wonder how many small businesses are powered by #wordpress or #joomla in Vegas alone?

During the pandemic, as our clients businesses and people all across America began suffering, we dedicated just under $1MM in billable hours to lead the Marketing & Digital Branding of a high profile NDA client that was working to help everyday people and businesses across the nation. It was an incredible honor to be of service and leverage our wealth of skills, knowledge and resources to help real people. Without a single dollar spent, we reached 40MM people and our content was viewed by about 125k people a day. Our conversion rate was over 80% - and we’re proud to say we helped businesses and people across the nation. We can’t wait to use what we’ve learned for our clients: Those we haven’t met yet, and the loyal friends who’ve used our services since we began in 2008. Let’s get to work, America 🇺🇸 https://www.themicrotechs.org
