Leaving a great first impression is always important. Did you know within 500 milliseconds of viewing your website, a visitor is already forming their opinion of your brand?

If visitors land on your site and don’t find what they’re searching for, you could be leaving money on the table and losing out on opportunities.

An engaging and well-designed website is vital to the growth and sustained success of your organization, regardless of what industry you’re in. Gone are the days of static, boring websites that remain untouched for years. You need a dynamic and functional site that actively helps your marketing and sales efforts.

E-commerce? Done. Custom forms with logic? Easy. Password-protected Members area? It’s not our first rodeo.

SEO rich & blazing fast

Your new website will feature your keywords and phrases throughout, in H1 and H2 tags, page names, body copy, and more. The entire site will be optimized for speed and efficiency.

Custom WordPress sites

The majority of our clients wind up choosing a custom built website because they need it to match their brand and want more input into the design.

These projects typically take between 3-4 months from start to completion, though some have been finished faster while others have taken longer.

Our custom-built websites offer more flexibility and customization than the other solutions, while also allowing clients to be involved throughout the process. You will be assigned a Recon Media account manager who will work with you the entire time.



What about after you’ve launched the site? How do you protect that investment from malware and hackers? Keeping the core files and database up-to-date? What about analytics and making sure everything is healthy?
