What Is Responsive Web Design (RWD)?
Day by day, the number of devices, platforms, and browsers that need to work
with your site grows. Responsive web design responds in accordance with the encountered devices, platforms,
Responsive web design uses the same domain name (for example, "silviagraphics.com") across all
devices and responds to the different viewports by providing the best user experience possible
for each device. The different viewports include desktop monitors, laptops, tablets, and all
mobile devices and their corresponding orientations (upright and sideways viewing by the user).
Benefits of Responsive Web Design
It saves you time and money
As our customer, you only have to pay for the development of one website. No mobile apps or
mobile websites are necessary. There's only one website that needs support too, so this cuts down
on monthly web support costs. Publishing new content is easy and more economical when there's only
one place for it to go.
The development is more complex to begin with, but once your RWD is completed, the monthly
costs will decrease significantly. Efficiency is gained because one "set" of code can
account for the additional channels, allowing for a single code change to migrate across every channel.
Your site will always look good, and your customers find information easier
This is because RWD will to adapt to the width and height or each device, such as smart tablets and phones,
and recognize any of the browsers ( e.g., Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari)
that visitors might be using. This means that your potential customer is going to have a much better
experience with your website. NOTE: A visitor is going to be a lot more likely to buy products
and services from your website if it actually works on his or her device.
RWD helps with your Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Because responsive design uses one code across all channels, it is a lot more effective to configure
the SEO inside of your website, plus we will be able to maintain your website a lot better.
What Is a Content Management System (CMS)
The content management system (CMS) is a system used to manage the content of a web site.
The main purpose of a CMS is to provide the capability for multiple users with different permission
levels to manage a website or a section of the content.
Depending on the nature of your business, you may need the ability to do daily updates on your website,
in which case we will teach you how to do these updates.
For example, for a website that has Articles, Blogs, Press Releases, a Store, an Events calendar, etc.,
each section can be assigned to one or more user(s) to create, edit, and archive.
What Is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?
SEO helps to ensure that a site is accessible to a search engine and improves the chances
that the site will be found by the search engine.
The purpose of SEO is to create a great, seamless user experience, and to
communicate to the search engines your intentions so they can recommend your website for relevant searches.
Basic search engine optimization (SEO) is fundamental. And essential. SEO will help you
position your website properly to be found at the most critical points in the buying process
or when people need your site.
Making your website search-engine optimized gives you a visible return on your
investment, as customers are able to find your business among the competition with greater ease.
Depending on your audience, we can build your website with keyword-enriched text to get you noticed
locally or we can utilize social media tools to help your business compete with the bigger names.
Social media platforms that we can utilize for you include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest,
blogs, and more.
Web services is a catch-all term for web hosting, web maintenance, and webbackups.
What are these and why do they matter to you? Please read on...
Web hosting is the critically important business of housing, serving, and maintaining files for one
or more web sites. More important than the computer space that is provided for web
site files is providing a fast connection to the internet.

Good websites are not static. Good websites have new content added periodically - usually the more
frequently, the better: updates keep visitors coming back again and again. At the very least,
good websites need periodic maintenance and tweaking.
silviagraphics offers cost-effective maintenance plans starting as low as $50.00/month
(with a 1-year contract). This includes 1 hour of work per month in which we do copy updates,
image exchanges, photo gallery updates, news updates, and search engine optimization (SEO) maintenance.
Depending on the activity of your site and the amount of updates, we can customize the plan for your needs.
Maintenance by request without a plan starts at $85.00 per hour.

outages, or other disasters. Our hosting partner automatically creates daily backups
of your entire account. Therefore, your site and its content are always protected, and we can easily
