Web Design & Development
Websites that create Results
We are committed to creating beautiful and functional websites that produce results. Whether your goal is to increase online sales, generate leads, raise awareness about your cause, or something else entirely, we will listen to your unique needs and develop a website that gives you a solid foundation for success.
Custom Web Apps
We asked Copper Cup to build us a new website in 2009, the site was above our expectations. The new business it brought in was substantial and we continue to work with Copper Cup today. Since 2009, they have done videos, photographs, built ads and helped with many projects. Fritz and Melissa have been very professional at the same time have made us feel like family. I would certainly recommend Copper Cup for all your website and media needs.
In all our years of business, we have yet to meet two clients who are identical. Every business is unique, and every business has unique needs for their website. We believe in giving you a custom product that is an extension of your business model. Something that is created just for you, not something you have to try to make yourself fit into.
Our team of web designers and developers has many years of experience, allowing them to work together to create websites that are fundamentally well-built and user-friendly. We have been building websites a long time and have seen many trends come and go. Because this isn’t our first rodeo, we understand the key components that every website needs to succeed in an online world, and build each website with these in mind:
Smartphones and mobile devices are becoming more and more prominent in our daily lives, and on the web. Statistics show that more Google searches happen on mobile devices than any other device, including desktops. In fact, it won't be long before Google rolls out their mobile first index.
If your website is not optimized for mobile visitors, your website will be left behind. Our designers understand how important it is for you to be able to effectively reach your audience, regardless of device, which is why we implement Responsive Web Design on all of our new sites. This means that your website's design can "respond" and adjust to the size of the screen that it's displayed on, allowing it to be viewed seamlessly across all devices.
Optimized for Success
At Copper Cup Images, we know that site design is only a small part of achieving a successful web presence. Success doesn’t just happen, it’s created by paying attention to lots of little details. For a website to be truly effective, focus must be placed on usability, search engine optimization, conversion goals, coding standards, and the extremely important task of effective presentation of valuable content. We are committed to getting every detail right, on the page and in every line of code under the hood – because we know that it makes a difference.
Content is Now King & Emperor
That phrase was first heard in our industry many years ago, but it is just as true today as it was then. The quality and presentation of your website content determines the likelihood that your visitors will be satisfied, share your content with others, and complete conversion goals. We place an extra emphasis on achieving content quality, providing share options, and funneling users towards conversion goals during the development of a site.
Easy to Update Content Managmenet
One of the most requested features on websites today is the ability for clients to easily update their own website. We have created our own Content Management System (CMS) to be a simple, elegant solution to updating your website, with absolutely no programming skills needed.
Gel, the Squishy CMS.
We wanted our content management system (CMS) to be something that could be shaped, molded, and rebuilt to meet the specific needs of our clients – hence the name, 'Gel'. You won't find any one-size-fits-most template websites here, just truly custom websites for truly unique clients.
Gel is intentionally simple, uncluttered and easy to use, making it easy to update and manage your own website. There are no plugins or add-ons to manage or update, because your website was built for you instead of around you like some other CMS's. Gel is a shining example of lean, mean code built with search engine optimization in mind and will get your site off to a good start in Google's eyes.
We know that no one wants to think that their website could be a target for an attack, but with thousands of bots scraping the web to find vulnerable sites, it's a very real possibility that shouldn't be taken lightly. Each of our sites is developed with security in mind, to make sure your investment is well protected. Furthermore, we keep our code secret, unlike those open source CMS's, so it's harder for hackers to find ways to get in.
17 Tips for Finding a Website Design Firm
Here is a thorough list of tips and tricks for finding the best website development firm for you.
How much does a website cost?
That is the number one question we get asked about website design. And it's not an easy question to answer. Asking how much "a website" costs is a lot like asking how much "a house" costs… it depends on what you need and want.
A website can be built like a modular home… from a template with little customization and no user-specific functionality. Or it can be built like a custom home, giving you the exact design and exact functionality you need.
We build websites that are like custom-built homes, and the price of each website depends on the size and the features needed. We create websites for non-profits and small businesses with limited budgets, and for larger companies that want all the "bells and whistles." Call us at 918-337-2781, and let us visit about exactly the kind of website you require. Then, we'll create a quote around your needs.
