What creates a successful website
and what doesn’t?
Slider

The difference in successful websites is right in the design!

Why do so many clients find themselves with websites that aren’t successful? The reason for this deficiency is clear…most developers do not design for marketing simply because it doesn’t show off the developer’s skill. There are two types of developers, The first type is those who design websites to show off what they can do in order to get another project. The second type will just use an already created template theme so that they can turn out the website within 24 hours. Neither of them have the clients’ best interest in mind.

One of the keys to a successful website isn’t how many sliding images you might have or how beautiful your images look. Instead, it’s about understanding how design influences the path the reader will follow. When you present your information using the correct design path you remove distractions, and therefore create the potential for generating greater profit.

You are missing out if there isn’t a monthly fee for your website

Yes, WordPress is free, but did you know that other content management systems (CMS) are also free. Yet, WordPress powers 32.07% of the top million websites and WooCommerce powers over 28% of all online stores. If you are happy with a simple blog with minimum security, no backups and a design which doesn’t fit your vision, then yes, WordPress is free, and we are not for you.

If your vision is a website which directs the customer to your product and clicks buy, then we need to introduce you to the world of plugin’s. WordPress’s strength comes from its plugins. To understand how plugins help is like comparing a fruit vendor with a cart to the grocery store. Both sell fruit, both pay rent, but the grocery store owner has staff to share his workload, security to protect his fruits, and marketing to increase visibility and sales. A simple blog is the fruit vendor, whereas a professional website running plugins is like the grocery store. The grocery store will have a high running cost but also have greater income compared to the fruit vendor.

Why didn’t my developer tell me these things?

Website designers talk about plugins all the time. Plugins will supercharge your website, and a supercharged website will create more profit. What they don’t talk about is that unless you regularly update those plugins, it leaves your website open to malware or hackers.

Yes, anything after WordPress 3.7, will have free automatic background updates. That function is great, but it only updates WordPress files and not plugins. It’s the website owner’s responsibility to get the updates from the plugin developer and update their website. The problem is that a large percentage of those super charged plugins require a renewal fee for those updates. You can ask the developer for the updates, but it will cost extra as it will be outside of the original design fee. We didn’t like that business model which is why we created the TST subscription.

Being able to budget for web maintenance was something we had not considered. Now we can definitely see the payoff of being able to have someone respond to our website emergencies and knowing someone knows the operation function of our website. We don’t have to explain much as they built it, so they know what is going wrong in situations.
Since our organization is tiny and changing a lot, working with someone who can respond to those kinds of changes has been huge for us. Additionally, Dave sincerely cares about finding what works the best. We have worked with others, and they did not care.

Features designed with you in mind

Custom Website

Nothing is more embarrassing than showing up to the party wearing the same dress as the other girl, right? So why do the same with your business with a template theme? You get a custom website created for your brand, business or product. Designed following advertising fundamentals to increase sales. It’s also designed and developed to grow with your business.

Open Communication Meetings

The kickoff meeting starts the project and the meetings continue until your site is live. So what happens after the site goes live? Do we drop off the planet? Nope, we begin the open communication meetings. In these biweekly meetings you can ask for help on updating the website, fine tuning the sales page, or answer questions you might have about anything. Don’t worry about your questions getting lost or forgotten as we track them for everyone on the project to review and edit.

Unlimited edits

Worried about asking for changes after the site has gone live? We aren’t like other companies that nickel and dime people. If you need something edited, just ask during your open communication meetings or update your personal request task list and we will work together on it.

Flat payment system

I hate paying different bills for my website as it’s confusing, why can’t someone just make something that covers everything, Sound familiar? We listened and created the TST subscription. It covers most everything a successful business will need to pay when running a properly built website.

Web Hosting

Design companies won’t host and hosting companies don’t design. If you go with the hosting company, you get an off-the-shelf theme which does not move if you switch hosting companies. If you go with a design company, need a hosting company that runs the same software as the website. We see hosting and the website as depending on each other, not two different things.

Email

If your website is down and there’s a high chance your clients can not e-mail you? The reason is that your e-mail is using the same server which host’s your website. This is a bad design which is why we don’t do it. We keep your mail addresses on a mail server separate from your website. So things keep running and stay secure, the mail servers on the east coast and the web servers on the west coast.

Security and Software Updates

Most websites are time capsules in our experience, the developer is long gone, and the client doesn’t know they have to update software. This mistake of not updating keeps the door open for hackers to access your client’s private information and more. Updating software is a must now a day, and we take updating seriously.

Backups

Most hosting companies have a backup system in place, but have you confirmed how often they backup your website or where are they stored the backup’s. Backups are critical to every business and every business has different needs. We tailor backups to your requirements. We store multiple versions of backups locally and remotely to minimise risks to our clients.

I wanted to make the switch to self-hosted WordPress, and the degree of technical knowledge for what I needed was overwhelming. TST Technology handled everything and still handles all. The more I call around to see the level of service and price that others offer, the more I confirm that I made the right choice. I appreciate Dave as a strategist and advisor almost more than as my tech guru.

They are more than a technical solution; they try to understand the problem. It's like hiring them to take me to the grocery store, but they are not only going to carry groceries. They will also help me improve my diet and make sure I am eating the correct foods. Not only are they doing the technology, but they are trying to understand and advance the business. I can trust them. Trust is very important to me.

How is the TST technology subscription different?

Web developers will focus on aspects of the website; typical things are how many pages, images, logo’s colours, etc. We begin the TST Technology subscription by getting to know your business so we build a website that complements your business.

Old way before TST Technology

You pay a web designer thousands of dollars to design and deliver a site. They leave and the site sits on your server outdated, not backed up, and not optimized. 

New way after TST Technology

TST Technology subscription is equal to getting your own IT staff without the high overhead costs. 

  • Off the shelf WordPress template 

  • Meetings stop after site goes live.

  • Nickel and dime you for website edits

  • Hosting separate from Website

  • No Email when website is down

  • Security patches not getting done

  • Not sure if backups are update

  • Billing nightmare

  • Custom website built for you

  • Open communication meetings

  • Unlimited edits without extra fees

  • Fully-managed hosting

  • Fully-managed email

  • Security patches get done

  • Regular backups stored locally and remotely

  • One bill to cover everything.

I knew no one I would want to trust for my overall needs in a website and also thought it would be very difficult in pricing. After working with TST Technology for 6 months, I thought it was a good decision because it helps me continuously to work on the website, improving it and having a progressive approach instead of having a static approach.

I like the constant communication, and I wish I had more time to do more of it. I find it helpful that there is a more comprehensive approach and integral approach to my business rather than just a fixed way. They are looking at my business, not just my website. I found it valuable that there is a link between my business and website. What I am doing and what I am up to and how things should change is based on the view of the website.

Which support plan should I select?

Support plans cover everything listed in the “Features Designed With You In Mind” section. Memberships, donations, ecommerce’s and specialized websites require extra plugin’s but which we don’t charge. We use sessions and server resources to define our pricing, because it benefits your profit.

For example, a membership website with only 1,891 sessions per month and uses low server resources, would fit into “Pro Support”.  Whereas a blog which gets over 181,983 sessions per month and uses high server resources would be “Master Support”. A membership or ecommerce website requires more service than a blog, but a server running out of resources affect your clients which affects your profits.

We understand most people don’t know how many sessions or resources their website uses per month, so choose the “Pro Support” to start. Once your site is accepting clients for a few months and setup on google analytics, we will review it together.

- A session is the browsing session of a single user to your site
