Using PHP and mySQL database I can develop a website that is interactive. For example, a site visitor can enter their information for a classified ad and be able to find it in a search listing immediately. They can then edit or delete the ad at their convenience. Membership information can be stored and later used to determine site access.
Shopping Cart Processing
If you are selling products online then a shopping cart is what you need to help site visitors make purchases. If you have products with simple options and standard pricing, I can assist you in locating a shopping cart system and customizing it to look like your site. If you have unique options for your products or pricing that is based on special calculations, I can write a custom shopping cart that will meet your product's needs.
Your business may have a need to collect information from a site visitor in order to provide them with the information they seek or to give them a quote for a product or service. I am able to create a form web page that will email the information to your business and a thank you or confirmation email to the site visitor.
Photos are an important part of many websites. Site visitors like to look at photo images and the images help make a site look more interesting. I can use your photo images in digital or print form and enhance them for web presentation. If you do not have a digital camera, I am able to come to your business and capture the photos for you.
Beginning with your ideas, I will create a website look that best represents your business. The design phase includes creating graphics, headings, buttons, navigation, and page layout. Color schemes and website theme are developed during this phase.
Once the website design is completed, the actual coding of each web page is started. The development phase is where informational and image content is added to each web page. PHP and mySQL coding is developed for sites that interact with a database (ie. shopping carts, classified ads, etc.). Forms are created for collecting information from site visitors and sending to your business via email.
Basically, everything that needs to be done for your website to operate online is performed during the development phase.
Once your website is online, you will need occasional changes to keep your site fresh. Maintenance covers text and image changes that occur as your business changes.
Search Engine Optimization
When a web page is optimized for search engines it has all the elements a search engine 'spider' is looking for in order to index your site.
I include basic optimization into each web page I develop; however, a more advanced strategy that develops inbound links to improve search engine rankings may be necessary if your business depends heavily on the internet.
