Would you like a refreshingly different website company? A professional website design company, located here in Boise?
At Oasis Interactive we aren’t your typical website design company. We believe calling your web company should be a pleasure not something you dread! Phone calls should be returned promptly; updates shouldn’t take months; costs shouldn’t be a surprise and things should be explained up front in a way that makes sense to you.
Why hire a professional website design company over an amateur? There are many answers to that question, but quality tops the list. The old adage, “You get what you pay for” has never been more true than in the field of website design. Your website is the face of your company and it is imperative that it portrays your organization in the best possible light. A professional will follow industry standards and best practices. This will ensure that your website is easy for your clients to use and is an effective tool for marketing your business.
Boise Website Designers and Developers
In 2006 the Oasis Interactive web design company was born. We named our company and created our online home at www.TheWebOasis.com to represent the Oasis in the desert of technology that we wanted our company to be. We are website designers and developers with a focus on integrity, quality, and customer service which has allowed us do what we love while in the process helping many Boise business owners increase their online success.
The Oasis Experience
Honest and Realistic Prices
Unfortunately many companies in our industry have a reputation for billing clients much more than the initial quote. This usually happens because the vendor charges entirely by the hour and they don’t spend enough time up-front assessing your needs based on your business goals before sending you a proposal.
We have literally heard dozens of horror stories about this exact scenario and that’s the last thing we want our clients to experience. Business owners sometimes have unrealistic expectations about how much of an investment is required to develop and implement effective marketing tools that deliver true value.
Our approach to bidding on projects is to have a direct and honest conversation about your budget. If the allocated budget is inappropriate based on what you’re trying to accomplish we’ll let you know right away. Instead of charging entirely by the hour for every project, we work diligently to assess your needs at the beginning of the conversation. We quote most projects using flat fees based on a rate sheet. When bidding on hourly work we are careful to very specifically articulate what will be included in our estimate and how many hours have been budgeted for the price quoted.
By doing business this way we set clear and reasonable expectations before beginning any work so our clients don’t get taken advantage of.
Award Winning Customer Service
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Snake River Region developed the Integrity Counts! award in 1997. Since then the organization has honored more than 507 companies in Boise and the surrounding area for their commitment to excellence, ethical business practices and community involvement. Each year companies are nominated for the Integrity Counts! award by customers, employees, vendors and individuals in the community.
We had the privilege of being nominated in 2010 by a client and BBB employee. We then went through the process of submitting materials to demonstrate how we have shown integrity in our web design business dealings. An independent group of 12 judges reviewed the materials submitted by each organization to determine the award recipients. We were very honored to learn that we had been selected as a recipients of this coveted award. On October 29, 2010 the award was accepted by owners Matt and Jade Stanley at the gala banquet at the NNU Brandt Center.
There are many ways to build websites but we prefer using a content management system (CMS). This is because it makes it easy for you to maintain your own website without needing to know any programming. If you need to make an update to your website you are empowered to do that without having to wait on us and without having to get a bill.
Out of all of the CMS available there are three open source systems that are in the top of their field. These are WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. After having worked extensively with two of the three we chose WordPress because our clients liked it best. It is hands down the most intuitive and easy to use CMS we have seen and our number one choice for professional website design.
LONGEVITY: WordPress was created in 2003 and it continues to be actively maintained and improved every month by a global community of talented programmers.
POPULARITY: Currently the most popular blogging system on the web (as of Wiki 2011); as of April 2013 version 3.5 had been downloaded over 18 million times.
QUANTITY: WordPress powers one of every four websites, nearly 60 million in all, with 100,000 more being created each day. These statistics prove that WordPress is an established platform worth using.
PRESTIGE: Notable users include The New York Times, CNN, Forbes, UPS, eBay and Sony. WordPress started as a blogging software for the masses. It was designed from the start to be easy to use for people of all skill sets. As it grew to be one of the top web design software platforms it maintained its original focus on usability. It was also created with SEO in mind and is very strong in that field. Users who invest in SEO tend to get better, faster results when using WordPress as their website platform compared to other systems.
