Project Brief

Beach Shutters Photography needed two major elements of Web Design.  The first and of course most important thing is they needed a Beautiful website to show off their magnificent photos.  This was particularly challenging because the client needed the page to load quickly and also show off their work.  This is a constant challenge that we are presented with.  This leads me into the second most important concern for my client.  Search Engine Optimization in a very competitive market.  Google search ranking highly rewards web sites that load quickly on both browser and mobile devices.  We were able to create a large site that I am proud to say, has naturally ranked number 1 for over two years now in the customers region.

Skills Needed

I would like to sum up dong a photography web site by saying “the Photography business is very competitive”.  In todays market a photographer can run their entire company online.  Beach Shutter Photography was a really fun challenge for me.  I pitted myself against the established pros and create a world class website and blog.  The owners main focus Search Engine Ranking.  She had observed that most of the other photographers in the area were paying for adds all the time.  I will have to say that it was quite a achievement to get the correct key words in and still have the site easy to navigate, make sense, and look visually stunning.  I am very proud that www.beachshutters.com has ranked number 1 for over 2 years now.

Initial Concept Planning

Beach Shutters Photography in Orange Beach Al needed 3 elements to create a hugely successful website.
Number one was Search Engine Optimization or SEO for short. If SEO is done correctly and the the routine updates are done on a consistent basis you can keep your site on page 1 indefinitely. In a competitive market this can Save you quite a bit in advertising while at the same time giving your business the reputation as number 1.

Getting to know the Customer

The challenge continues on getting the best design and allowing my SEO to do its best work. Communication with the customer is paramount to achieving success in web design. You can build the best site ever but if it does not function well or the customer does not like the look of it, we did not do our jobs. We spend quite a bit of time learning about our customers and how exactly they want to appear online. We take that and do our very best to produce their vision and add our special custom touches that will definitely set them apart from the competitors.

Quality Content

Creating Quality content is the final and most important element for the end user. Once you have found the site and clicked on the link what comes next has to impress. For the Beach Shutters Project quality photos were the easy part. Putting all the wonderful photos in the correct place and making sure the site flows was our challenge. You only have about 6 seconds to impress so we make sure each one counts.
