Core Services

Whether you’re a business owner, design agency, application developer, or just want to make your site look better, ShermanVision offers four dimensions of web development that will make your site stand out above the rest.

Custom Website Design

Don’t know where to begin? Tired of messing with those online site builders? ShermanVision has literally designed and built hundreds of custom websites for clients ranging from fine artists to federal defense agencies. We have several different levels of service to suit both the modest and comprehensive budget. We can also help design your brand so you can hit the ground running with your startup business and new website.

WordPress Customization

Are you an agency with your own designers? Are you a designer yourself? Along with our technical experience, ShermanVision has a fine art degree, so you can be certain the integrity of your design will be translated to the Web. While WordPress is the most popular CMS, we have also worked extensively with Drupal and NetForum – we’ve even designed and built our own CMSs from scratch, some of which are still in use after 18+ years.

E-commerce Setup

ShermanVision developed our first e-commerce solution in 2003. Since then we’ve developed numerous systems for membership subscription, event registration, and downloadable and physical products. Using industry-standard tools, you’ll be able to manage your secure membership access, events, shipping, tax collection and secure credit card transactions.

Animation & Interactivity

Animated billboards and other cool features will help give your site a strong visual impact. We specialize in providing motion graphics and user-engaging features. We have designed and developed many unique, dynamic components such as interactive maps, timelines and slideshows.

Animated Billboards

With every website we’ll include at least one animated billboard on the homepage. Your marketing slogan and a call-to-action button, over an attractive background image, will animate smoothly into view to capture your audience’s attention.

Memberships / Subscriptions

If you have premium ($) content, we can set up your site so users can purchase memberships or subscriptions and have exclusive access to pages or types of media from your site. Subscribers can be billed automatically and/or receive an email notification when their subscription is up for renewal.

Events / Scheduling

We can configure your store for scheduling or events. Your visitors will have access to calendar, lists and detail views. They can see images, maps, and speakers, and receive email notifications. They can purchase tickets and register for your events. The are dozens of options.

Product Variations and More

Product variations allow you to sell multiple versions of your product, such as small, medium, and large, or different color options. You can also offer coupons and discounts in your store. The options are numerous.

Other Included Features

Several other features are included in your site:

Responsive Design

Yes, your site will look and work great on a mobile device. You will likely first look at your new site on a wide-screen, desktop monitor, but we don’t stop there. We take extra time to make sure your site collapses well into a vertical format for mobile as well.

Page Builder

One of the most important aspects of your site will be whether you can edit it yourself after it’s complete. You may want to simply re-word a paragraph, or update a bio. Your new site comes with an on-screen editor where you can make simple changes or redesign the site if you want to. Just open the editing function, insert your cursor and type away. We offer at lease one hour of orientation in every site package to get you started.

Social Sharing

Sharing your content on social media is easy with your new site. At the bottom of every blog are buttons where users can share your stories with the world.

More Options

Take a look at these other options available for your site:

Site Acceleration

One of the most common complaints people have is about the speed of their website – how long it takes to load. Most of this has to do with the service-level of your hosting plan. The most economical solution is to subscribe to a content delivery network (CDN). This is a service that hosts your images on an external, high-speed server, delivering these assets much faster than a shared hosting platform.

Accessibility

The core features of your new website are inherently WCAG 2.0 compliant. However, special attention must be placed if you have particular accessibility requirements, like high contrast for the vision-impaired. Other considerations include hearing loss and cognitive limitations.

Analytics & Reporting

Monitor your site’s reach and engagement with analytics and reporting. We can install Google Analytics for a start, but any number of reporting options are available.
