Platform / CMS RecommendationsWe will work with you to define a clear set of requirements including core functionality, asset management, customization, roles & permissions, etc. that will allow us to make the best CMS recommendation for you. We are well versed in numerous CMS solutions, but we’ve found that ExpressionEngine generally works best for larger sites and WordPress is typically the best solution for smaller sites and smaller budgets. Of course, there is much more that goes into making the best CMS recommendation, but we’ll walk you through the pros and cons of each. Our ringers also have many years experience working with other CMS solutions such as Joomla and Drupal on large-scale sites. We also keep up to date on other boutique CMS solutions such as Virb and SquareSpace so rest assured that we’ll always recommend the best CMS solution for your project.

eCommerceDesigning an eCommerce website requires a different approach compared to basic website design. Varieties of online selling principles are considered while designing an e-commerce website. Putting a product on the web is easier than renting space and opening a supermarket. However, selling the product is much more difficult. A good e-commerce website design should be user-friendly and accessible with minimum number of clicks.
At Landers Brannon, we tackle the challenge of transforming conventional marketing techniques into profitable online selling process. Some of our eCommerce offerings include integration of user friendly (and SEO friendly) shopping carts, well designed search catalogs, Payment Gateway Integrations, SSL certificates and supporting online marketing services.
