Atlanta-Based Agency Develops Google Docs-Based Methodology To Help Businesses Streamline Their HubSpot Web Design Process


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 30, 2012

All web design projects have at least 3 stages: strategy, design, and implementation. Often, companies start the graphics portion of their web design before addressing their messaging and determining how their website will help them capture more leads, often leading to higher costs, frustration, and an ineffective website.

One of the major web design pitfalls that we have seen, is the tendency of business owners and marketers to focus first on the look and feel of their website. said Eduardo Esparza, president of Market 8, this only leads to countless revisions, increased design costs, and ineffective websites that do not support sales growth.

Last December of 2011, Market 8 launched a series of web design templates for the HubSpot CMS and a methodology that helps companies understand their messaging and their lead conversion triggers.

Companies adopting HubSpot and immersing themselves in inbound marketing, need to be thinking about how to generate leads through their website. Our methodology for HubSpot web design forces companies to think about what they want to say and how leads will convert; we then help them execute their message and their lead capture process with custom graphics, custom calls to action buttons and a series of web page templates that they can reuse as they create their content, said Esparza.

Market 8s HubSpot web design is facilitated by a proprietary, easy to use Google Docs-based Implementation Workbook that allows efficient collaboration between clients and the Market 8 team.

Our process is designed to facilitate collaboration, Esparza said, sometimes we see up to 6 people working and discussing different aspects of messaging, content and conversion, simultaneously, in a single Google spreadsheet; this eliminates e-mailing information, version control, and allows for quicker implementations and a better end result, every single time.

Market 8s hubspot web design templates have a starting price of $ 950 and are available in 4 different layout structures and implementation levels.

Orlando Web Design Agency Micrositez Introduces New Web Design Packages


Orlando, Florida (PRWEB) June 09, 2012

Leading Orlando Web Design Agency Micrositez announced today that it has introduced a new line up of lower cost Website Design Packages to meet increasing demand for its products and services.

It could be argued that being an Orlando web design Company is a bit like being a barber, people always need their hair cut and barbers do not technically shift or sell any stock or inventory. To that end web design is also an intangible but on-going business, just as hair is always growing (supplying a need for barbers and hairdressers); the web is also growing and evolving and web designs need to be updated regularly to keep up with changes in style and evolutions to underlying code and HTML markup.

Micrositez Website Design Orlando founder and CEO Scot Crone is quoted as saying Website design is not a one time process, web designs get old, start to look dated or just simply no longer work in newer browsers. To this end Micrositez have developed a new line of lower cost web design packages to meet demand from smaller businesses looking for a stylish and more up to date website that will allow their business to stay current and their web presence to be more fully up to date.

Micrositez are a leading web design and Digital Marketing Agency headquartered in Floridas Hi-Tech corridor Lake Mary (just North of Orlando). They provide hand 100% coded markup with the highest quality unique designs available. As far as the new lower cost web design packages go, Micrositez CEO says Not everyone can afford a hand drawn, hand coded website; not everyone wants or needs one either; thats why we have introduced a line-up of special fully customizable templated designs utilizing the latest HTML markup. These are off the shelf so they are quicker and easier to design and develop, therefore they cost less, its that simple.

Web design today has gone through many evolutions, animated gifs and scrolling text will no longer cut it, clean, user friendly intuitive design is what is called for in 2012. The Orlando Marketing Agency Micrositez now believes that it is better positioned to meet the needs of small to mid sized enterprises with its latest range of fully customizable templated designs. These templated designs can be altered to suit any companys theme or color style and the HTML code is clean and SEO friendly complying with the latest W3C guidelines.
