This post is about a video game. A fighting game. Street Fighter, to be exact.
People have been playing this game since I graduated from High School in 1987. I started playing Street Fighter II in 1991.
Now, we make the official website for it.
Today I decided to see how we ranked on Google. I searched Riverside web design and found us on page nine. That is dumb. I typed in Riverside website design and my company appeared on page four. That was slightly smarter than dumb, but… not by much. Searching website design Riverside displayed us on page five. Oops. Got worse again. And then I tried one more term: Web design Riverside. Pfft. It showed us on page seven.
You know, if you’re really good at Ultra Street Fighter 4, you can now play it and win enough prize money to buy a house.
That is… well… something I really like.
I’ve played video games since the seventies. My lead designer, Brian, is into them as well. Now, games are more than our entertainment. they fill our work days, too. Here’s a cool story about that.
If you’re looking to serve customers on the internet, it makes sense to have a website that loads fast, has clear navigation, provides direction, and looks good on any display. Sites like this make it easy for visitors to find what they want and take action. In short, you want a website that works.
If you’re into fighting games, especially Street Fighter IV, there’s something very cool going on Saturday at The Warfield in San Francisco! It’s the CAPCOM Cup: An annual fighting game tournament that’s the finale of a year-long professional tour.
Think about the last time you needed to make changes to your own website. Chances are, you had to call your designer, make a request, wait, and pay. This process makes sense if you need a whole new page or section. However, there’s almost no reason to go through it when you only want to change a word or photo.
Olive Branch Counseling Centers wanted the ability to update their counselor list, biographies, and more. Their old site required the skills of a web designer to make changes like this. So they commissioned us to recreate their existing site in WordPress. Now, when they hire a new counselor and want to place them on their website, Olive Branch staff can simply log in, follow a few easy-to-understand steps, and click update.
As a bonus, their new site is responsive. It automatically and elegantly resizes to fit desktops, tablets, and phones.
If this sounds like something you’d like for your own website, please give us a call.
