We have come to realize over the years that creating a full-featured attractive website is only one piece of the puzzle. To truly help our clients succeed we need to provide a full range of marketing concepts and apply them to the website. This means during the design phase of the site we typically propose a number of things that could be displayed on the website for maximum effect. This could be a blog, a special offer, a set of featured images, news updates, recent events, testimonials, mailing list sign-up form, and other things that are relevant to the client's website. The result is a complete website that is attractive as well as effective and empowers our clients to achieve their marketing goals.
Let us empower YOU to succeed!
We use a Content Management System (CMS) to help make website maintenance a breeze, and the majority of our clients use this amazing technology as leverage to empower their website. This technology enables our clients to "log in" as an administrator of your website and make changes to the text, images, dates, prices, and any other regular content right through your web browser. No special software is needed and you can do this from any computer that has an Internet connection. Basically KOA Consulting is bringing world-class technology that was previously only available to the BIG companies and enabling any of our clients to use these features. We have based our Content Management System on the open-source "Joomla" platform as it is the most cutting-edge, robust, and easy to use framework out there. We have customized it even further to make sure it works just right for every one of our clients that wants these features.
Here is a list of just a fraction of the full set of features our Content Management System offers:
