Web Site Design and Consulting Services

During the past few years I have often been asked by both clients and friends to "consult on" or "art direct" Web sites for them. I have in all of these cases taken the time to discuss with them their vision of their proposed sites and to reconcile this vision with the realities of what would also most effectively serve their needs at an affordable price.

If you are interested in a well-designed, extremely pleasing, professional Web site that is fast and totally functional, then please fill out the Web Site Consultation form below or simply email me at silvio@silvio-co.com or give me a call at 905-985-3555.

My abilities as a design consultant and book publisher, and those of my associate, a certified Web professional, will certainly make the creation of your new Web site less stressful for you while also allowing you to do what you do best: "taking care of your business."

Affordable Web Design

  • The unique combination of benefits and features we offer will save you many hours of your own precious time. And we're affordable!

Professional Web Design Services

Easy Web Page Navigation

  • An easy-to-navigate Web site, so you don't lose customers along the way.

  • Friendly "dual navigation" to make your pages easier to use. First navigation bar: top, right or left. Second navigation bar: bottom.
  • "Top of Page" links for easier navigation of long sales or product pages.
  • Drop-down menus/lists for easier navigation to products or pages, if required.
  • Contextual links added to your content. These are keyword-rich links to other pages in your site. Search engines love contextual links.

Custom Web Site Design

  • A Cascading Style Sheet created for your project to ensure consistency of fonts, headings, link colours, etc. throughout your site.
  • A "template" of your custom design to ensure a consistent look and feel to your Web site. This is not a generic template; this is a template made from your unique Web design and used to create all your pages, so they are consistent and easy to update thus reducing maintenance costs.

Web Content Development Services

  • Skillful editing and updating of your content (including grammar, punctuation and spelling). Most Web design firms paste in your content with no thought as to how it reads, or how well it suits your online business.
  • Suggested changes to your sales pages for improved market impact. Quickly start turning visitors into customers!

Other Web Design and Development Services

  • Fast-loading, clean, attractive Web pages. We don't irritate your customers with gyrating graphics, music that won't go away, silly mousetrails or sliding text!

  • Every link tested and re-tested.
  • All Web-related logins and passwords recorded in multiple places for safekeeping.
