The perfect website should be visually striking, easy-to-navigate and clearly showcase your value. It should represent who you are and what you do. And we believe this shouldn’t cost you a fortune to achieve. At SMR Website Design, we work closely with you to build a website that reaches all your goals.
Our minimalist designs are individually tailored to represent your unique personality while meeting the exact needs of your target audience. We hand-code your site using the latest framework (Bootstrap 5) to ensure the perfect user experience across all devices. Incorporating the best optimization (SEO) practices and following the latest guidelines from all major search engines, we build high-performing websites that deliver on all fronts.
ADA Standards have been in the forefront of web design and building for the past 5
It has become a major topic leading to many legal issues for small business owners.
SMRWD has invested in the best testing software and training to ensure our work meets the latest standards for ADA Accessibility.
Our goal is to provide a good user experience online for everyone, not just meet the minimum requirements.
*We do not use or recommend third party widgets as they are not a proven way to make a website accessible. All of our work is done through the actual code of the website ensuring all aspects meet the highest ADA standards.
Legal Documentation is now required on all sites.
Privacy Policies explain to your site visitors what you do with the data you collect from them whether it be from a contact form, analytics service, or membership.
Terms & Conditions explain to the visitor how and what your website should be used for.
There are many other legal documents your website may need depending on it's uses.
SMRWD now offers creating this documentation for your website. We include creating and installing the most basic required documentation at no extra cost.
Hosting is one of the most important, but often overlooked, aspects of your site. It plays a major role in your website’s overall speed, uptime, and security. At SMR Website Design, we provide dedicated hosting servers to maximize performance, enabling your site to grow in a secure environment.
Security is a big concern for any site. That’s why we offer advanced web security on all our websites through McAfee to protect every user, device and location from malicious programs. We even install SSL certificates to encrypt sensitive information such as credit card numbers, usernames, and passwords.
Your time is better spent looking after your customers than worrying about the latest security updates. At SMR Website Design, we take care of your site, so you don’t have to lift a finger. From regular updates to ongoing back-ups and uptime monitoring, we keep your site bug-free and running like a well-oiled machine.
With a website looking this good, it would be a
crime for no-one to see it! Luckily, we hand-code all websites following the best
SEO practices to improve your ranking and help your customers find you.
We want to create a website that aligns with all aspects of your business. Whether you’re looking to build from scratch or bring new life to an existing site, we make it easy to get started.

How is my website built?
We build 98% of our client's websites by hand. Meaning they are all hand-coded websites built using the Bootstrap 5 framework. No templates, all sites are one-offs built from a blank canvas.
On occasion, if a client requests, we will build a site using a website builder such as Wordpress, Shopify, or others.
Where are hand coded websites Hosted?
All of our hand coded websites are hosted within our own hosting platform for optimum performance stability, and security.
What about SSL Security?
All of our websites are issued their own SSL Certificate by Sectigo and are encrypted and secure.
What about ADA Compliance?
Our websites are designed with ADA compliance in mind.
We use the best available software to check that our websites meet the latest ADA requirements. Although right now there is a huge grey area as to what is and what is not compliant, all of our websites are made compliant from the backend code. This has been proven the only way a website can be fully compliant.
Websites that use ADA widgets or buttons are found to not be compliant because of how they must be activated by the user to work. By using the code, the website is always compliant without the need of any extra steps.
How long does it take to create my website?
There are a few factors in determining how long it will take to get your site completed.
Generally, once the mock up is approved, the structure and flow of the site can be built within a day or two.
Mostly, the largest factor determining the completion of the site is how quickly we are delivered the site content, ie. images and written text.
The sooner we have all the content, the quicker we can build and complete your website.
How do I make a payment?
We have a few options for payments:
1. We can email you an Invoice which you can pay online with any credit or debit card.
2. We accept payment through Venmo.
3. We also accept payment through Zelle.
When do I have to pay?
• Design: To start work on any project, we require a small deposit of $50.00. The initial deposit enables us to begin work on a mock up website.
• Site-Build: Once you approve the mock up designs, we ask for an additional $50 before we begin the building phase.
• Mid-Build: Great design deserves great copy. But, don’t leave it until the last minute! Perfecting your web copy can take much longer than you may expect. Before commencing your project, we will need to agree upon a delivery date for your web copy. If your copy is not delivered within this timeframe, we may request an additional deposit to be paid each month until the copy is provided and the project is finalized. The deposit is then deducted from the total cost of your website project.
• Launch: With the completed website around the corner, we send out an invoice for the remainder to be paid in full. We communicate with you on the finishing touches and make any changes requested. Once the balance has been paid in full, your website is scheduled for launch!
Why do I have to submit a deposit?
It’s not that we don’t trust you. We simply ask for a deposit to safeguard our time and ensure you are invested in the project. It also helps us to push your project to the front of the line so we can get started right away.
Are there any hidden costs associated?
None at all! We will provide you with a fixed price for the entire project. This helps you plan ahead and keep within your budget. We also offer the option to select a monthly retainer, starting at $26.50 per month. This can be added at anytime, and helps provide you with peace of mind that your website is up-to- date and functioning at full capacity. Contact us here to find out more about our monthly retainers.
