How do I choose the right Akron website design company?

We believe that web design is more than just making your website look good. There are many website design companies in the Akron area that can do this for you.

Why is it important to work with a web designer that also knows marketing?

Your website is your #1 marketing channel these days. This is not important for Akron and Northeast Ohio area businesses, but for any business that wants to grow and compete in the digital space. 

Your company website should not only look amazing but it should be designed from the ground up to meet very specific goals that are unique to your business. Your goals are ultimately achieved by having a specific marketing plan, and a specialized digital marketing partner that can execute all the necessary tactics in a highly professional manner. 

At Sanctuary we specialize in custom website design, digital marketing strategy and the execution of your marketing tactics. Our team believes that this is a unique and valuable mix. When we combine an amazing, custom website with an end-to-end digital marketing plan that actually drives real customers to your website, you're going to have an asset that's working for you every day to grow your business.

How do I get started?

Developing an effective website for Akron area businesses involves many specific elements that are intimately dictated by the business, your unique goals, your brand rules, your budget, as well as many external factors such as the industry, your niche, and on and on.

At Sanctuary we've found that the only possible answer is to actually engage the potential client with a “Discovery” project.

In this project, we’ll do all the necessary work to really understand your unique goals. Only then are we able to deliver a proposal that allows us to align with the needs, budget and timeline required by each unique client.

Once this initial discovery is complete, we'll present our research and findings to you along with our recommendations for your new website.

Finally, when everyone is aligned around measurable goals, a specific plan, and a specific budget to get the job done, our team of specialists work to execute your project within the timeline that we've all agreed upon.
