Website Development

Realize Information Technology

From complex sites to a simple, one-page web presence. Our first priority is to accommodate your business goals and budget.

With more than 20 years experience, we have seen exciting changes in internet technology. And a few flops.

Many web developers are so focused on master their tools that they forget about the client’s goals. Sometimes they forget to look at the site they are building from the perspective of a member of the public. The list of considerations for professional site design continues to grow.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Ensure your organization has visibility on Google and other search engines. Most of our clients want “free” or “organic” traffic from search engines. However, with a healthy budget, you can pursue a Google Ads campaign. All major search engines—such as Google and Bing—have primary search results, where web pages are shown and ranked based on what the search engine considers most relevant to the user’s query. Our goal is to get you on the first page of a Google search.

Here is one aspect of SEO that consistently trips people up: Trying to compete on their competitors’ terms. If you did research and saw the other guy making a killing in Custom Widget B, should you be writing content about the same topic?

Your true starting point is the set of traits that make you most distinctive. You’ve got a Reversible Doodad that no one else has? Run with it! Note that identifying distinctive traits does not come naturally to everyone. It may take an outside perspective.

Social Media Management

Don’t have time to post and engage on social media? We can help. Social Media makes it easier for your business to listen, interact, and engage with customers. If done correctly, can be time consuming. Yes, you could have someone currently in office do this, but do they have a track record of success in this skill? Are they posting information relevant to the customers you are trying to reach? Are they posting often enough? Do they have the time available to plan and execute a social media strategy in addition to their current duties? Our team can create a business plan to target new customers as well as engage your current customers.

Hosting

Reliable web hosting with solid performance. We carefully compared different hosting systems to provide you with modern, stable technology. All plans also have a baseline level of security enabled at no extra cost. We can also build eCommerce functionality into your Realize hosted project. For sites with high traffic needing top professional performance, we can set up a dedicated server. Ask about our plans.

Site Management

We can do regularly-scheduled maintenance on your existing site. This may be updates to internal software, security scans, scheduled content modifications, or changes to product entries. We can generate a report each time the tasks are completed.

Accessibility

Make your site content accessible to all persons, including the disabled.

How many designers think to look at their work from the perspective of someone who is disabled? Not enough. Not only are disabled persons poorly served, but the legal landscape is responding to such unfair practices.

Legal Preparedness

A growing number of national and international laws may apply to your site. Avoid an adverse event! Realize Information Technology can audit your existing site, advise changes, and perform upgrades for you.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is based on strict laws in Europe and is designed to protect consumer privacy. It applies to most sites worldwide.

More about the GDPR …

The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) originated in California but, in practice, applies worldwide:

Does CCPA apply to you?

  • Businesses are subject to the CCPA if one or more of the following are true:
    • Has gross annual revenues in excess of $25 million;
    • Buys, receives, or sells the personal information of 50,000 or more consumers, households, or devices;
    • Derives 50 percent or more of annual revenues from selling consumers’ personal information.
  • As proposed by the draft regulations, businesses that handle the personal information of more than 4 million consumers will have additional obligations.
