How We Work

When you contact ATU for the first time regarding your website project, we will talk with you to find out as much as we can about your business and website needs. If you are not sure what you want or need in a website, don’t worry! We are trained to ask questions that will clarify your goals and help you envision the most appropriate Internet website to represent your business.

After one or two conversations, we can usually give you a ballpark figure of what it could cost to design, develop and implement a website for your business.  If you give the go-ahead, we will prepare a website project proposal/plan which will include project deliverables and a proposed project schedule.  The proposal will be submitted for your review. If an approval is given, we can schedule a start date for your website project.

As your website project gets underway, we provide early online views of page design work and other website deliverables. Early website feedback from Clients gives us a chance to confirm our mutual understandings of the project and its deliverables. It also gives us a chance to adjust the page design and page content early in the process. ATU keeps Clients apprised of project progress and we are committed to keeping project schedules and delivering an excellent product on time!

What is SEO and how can I get it?!

SEO (Search Engine Optimization) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine's "natural" or un-paid ("organic") search results. To that end, our highest priority is ensuring that a Client's website is accessible to search engines and is built and optimized in such a way that it helps improve the chance it will be found by people searching the web.

We build your website using current-industry Best Business Practices. We work with you to ensure that important business keywords are prevalent in page content as well as in titles and website links. We include geo-targeting references to ensure that people searching for services in specific geographical areas are able to find you. We include logos and outbound links to professional organizations and other entities with whom you have relationships.

We can advise on online marketing tools such as Pay-Per-Click, Social Media Marketing and E-mail Marketing. These, in addition to social networking through Facebook, Linkedin,  Twitter and others may help you target your key audience and bring potential customers to your website and your business.
