Optimized Web Design & Development
"IF YOU BUILD IT, they will come."
But will they stay or run away?
Ever walk into a restaurant but then turn right around and walk out? Maybe it was the food on the floor, or the flies buzzing around your head, or maybe it was the formica table tops you didn't like. Maybe you can't put your finger on it, but you get the sense that the food and service just might not be the quality you had hoped for, and so you walk right on out and into the restaurant across the street.
Your website can be pushing your visitors back out the door!
Our web designers here at Kat & Mouse SEO & Web Design want your potential customers to stay put when they walk "through the door," but beyond that, we want them to come back again and again. So, we go to great lengths when we build your website to assure that happens.
We give your website the "sticking" and "converting" power it needs.
We spend time doing competitive market research on your behalf. We visit the store across the street, so to speak. Then we go to work to make your website better, more useful, more informative, more memorable, and more profitable.
- To get visitors to stick, our web designers put our attention to developing a clean, professional design that puts your visitors at ease and lets them settle in when they walk through the door.
- We sweep away the dust and bugs and bring in the decorator to make sure your website reflects the professionalism of your business.
- Then we make sure you have compelling copy that will drive your visitors to the cash register or phone.
- We pay attention to the "floor plan" and make sure traffic will be directed in a nice, easy flow throughout your site.
- And we make sure you are furnished with all the nuts and bolts you need to conduct your business online effectively.
- If you choose, we also go beyond the actual development to make sure your website is visible, and remains visible, throughout the Internet and in the search engines via our SEO and SEM packages.

Let us create your targeted, optimized MOBILE WEBSITE
Have you looked at your website in your phone lately? You may be disappointed. Why? Because websites designed for computer browsers not only don't fit in the small screens on phones, they are packed with way too much information and crowd out what your audience really wants.
Consider your mobile audience. Why are they coming to your site?
Creating a mobile website takes understanding of who the mobile market is, what they really want on your website at that moment, and how best to give it to them. Kat & Mouse understands the special needs of your mobile audience.
If you already have a website, or if you're in the process of developing one, we can create a mobile version that fits just right, not only within the dimensions of the screen, but within the brief moment of time your mobile visitor is giving you.
We develop mobile websites for iPhone, Blackberry, and all other Smartphones.
