A website is homebase. It’s your calling card. It lets people know who you are and what you’re about. It’s a combination billboard, business card and biography of your business.
ToKnowMe Web Development are ‘minimalist’ website developers. We aren’t comfortable with clutter. We do all aspects of web development including domain registration, website hosting, logo and graphic design, layout design, content creation (including video & copywriting) and getting you found (SEO)
A website has to have some unique qualities. It has to appeal to a new visitor within the first 3 seconds, usually on an emotional level. After that first decision, it has to answer or look like it will answer their most burning question within 10 seconds. It also has to be crystal clear as to what their next move is. It has to NOT make them work to get what they’re looking for so it has to be “clear” and “concise”. That’s why we avoid ‘clutter’ in a website.
