About Digital808 – Web Design and SEO Background
How I Started
I graduated from Cornell University in 1998 and started my business in 1999. During my college years I was a marketing and economics major with a double minor in Communications and Astronomy. In college I had the opportunity to work for Cornell Information Technologies where I was introduced to web languages and started to dabble in them. Thus going into web design and development wasn’t that difficult.
Now, fifteen years later I can say that times have changed. Having an elegant web site simply isn’t enough anymore. Its all about creating a hybrid solution that’s both visually and contextually rich as well as easy to use for anyone who visits your web site, on just about any device. More important, this work is also about knowing how to optimize your web site so that search engines understand who you are, what you do, where you offer your services and more. This is a focal point of planning that I have been driving over the past fifteen years. My company has a two fold purpose; to help you get the right web site for your business or organization and, optimize your web site and content so that you can get noticed in search engines and other internet channels.
I and my two developers have been designing and developing web sites for fifteen years now; anything from small five page web sites to database driven dynamically fluid, multi thousand page web sites.
For quite some time Digital808.com has been known to deliver extremely competitive and very comprehensive web site solutions. Imagine a site that has the ability to direct the consumer straight to the products and services you would like them to see; no blundering, no frustrations and no ambiguity. Its about efficiency and ease of use and we stride to incorporate those elements everywhere into the sites we produce. With that in mind we realized that we not only wish to help those who are first time web owners, but also those who already have the experience and wish to focus their skills on further enhancing their sites usability model and to further market their products/services.
Our advantage is derived from our missions critical focus which is to satisfy our clients by meeting their costumers needs and expectations. We have witnessed a serious shake-up in the internet industry. Many web sites went bankrupt and it wasn’t because of poor products or services. At times lack of capital killed them. In other instances the lack of proper structure, frustrating web site usage, poor security as well as poor information architecture drove the final nail.
This shop opened doors in 2,000 and has proudly served a base of customers all over the world. Although most of our web clients are in New York City, Chicago, and Boston, we have developed and serviced web sites just about everywhere (Hong Kong, England, Honolulu, Seattle, London, and more)!
