Website Design / Website Development
We realize that choosing a website design for your business can be very frustrating and time consuming. Finding a good web design company that offers full website development is sometimes just as difficult.
Eagle Web Designs is a full web development company, meaning we can complete your project from start to finish without outsourcing any of the work. All of our website projects are completed in our Myrtle Beach, South Carolina office.
When we develop a website for a business, we strive to make the website unique for that business, as well as user friendly. Our goal is to make each website interesting, functional, and easy to navigate. We custom design every website to fit the needs and personality of that business.
Since we are located in South Carolina, you will always speek to an American and you will usually work with the same web designer for all of your projects. All of our web designers live right here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
What is the difference between website design and website development?
The difference has to do with how far the website design company goes in the development process. Website design usually has to do with just the graphic design and layout of the website and laying the content on the pages. Website development has to do with the website from start to finish which includes the use of proper code, error checking, coding for the search engines, integrating other programs, and many other aspects.
Not every web design company offers the same capabilities. Not all website designers have the same abilities or knowledge.

Most people tend to think that if they design a website themselves or have a "friend" design it for them, it will be professionally created and the visitors will come running to the site. This is not so. Quite a few website design companies and self taught web designers use programs and templates to quickly design a website, or they outsource the project to another country. Unfortunately, as with just about anything, taking short cuts has disadvantages; for you, the client.
For the web design company, there is no disadvantage. They get your money, design you a quick website, and then can charge you later to "fix" the website. Or, if they don't know how to or don't know any better, you will have to start over with a new website design company.
Quick website design programs and templates very rarely use proper or updated coding. We have found this especially true of the "do-it-yourself" website builder programs. The code used in those programs is usually quite messy and not search engine friendly at all. One of the worst things about the programs is that most of the time you can't move your website to a different hosting company if you want to.
Another problem with a website design company that does not support full website development is that some of them do not host their own websites. This is very common with the self taught, work from home web designers. This means that you will have a 3rd party involved with your website, or even a 4th party if they outsourced any of your website project! That is just more for you to keep up with, and more potential problems.
As a full website development company, we offer this as the difference between us and other website design companies; True website development consists of understanding the clients needs and wants, producing graphics that relate to the professionalism of the clients business, properly coding the website pages following the latest W3C guidelines, setting up easy to use navigation, preparing the website for search engine indexing, properly integrating any other needed programs, and doing it all in-house.
We also pride ourselves on our great customer service and relationships that we have with our clients.
Some areas of website development that are frequently outsourced by other companies.
Writing custom PHP programs for interactive websites
Integrating e-commerce shopping carts
Optimizing websites for the search engines
One of the disadvantages of outsourcing is the inability for the website company to be able to make changes for you. Most of the time, the changes have to be made by the company it was outsourced to, and this can take weeks instead of days.
