With White Squirrel Website Solutions, your Internet presence is in the hands of a neighbor you can trust. We understand the unique marketing needs of your resort area business - and the seasonal effects on your business and your budget!
Our first step is to learn as much as we can about your business or organization. We believe that, as your webmaster, we are a vital part of your team!
From our very first meeting, we attempt to learn YOUR VISION of your completed website. We guide you through the planning process so that, together, we have planned the perfect site for your needs.
Once we have a plan, we begin the design – the “look & feel” of your website. The design includes the images, logos, colors, and fonts.
The layout determines where and how the information will appear and the way your visitors will navigate the site.
Your website’s information is then loaded into the site’s database. Some of this will be copy that you have provided and, depending on our arrangement, copy we have written for you.
As we input your content, we code each page with information to help Google and other search engines “crawl” your site. Search Engine Optimization is the primary method for guiding customers to your website.
Once the site is encoded, we review the site, creating a “punch list” of revisions and additions. The Launch 6 When everything is ready, we LAUNCH – your site is live!
A content management system (CMS) is available on all of our websites, allowing you to easily update your website on your own.
CMS is a software system that provides website authoring, collaboration, and administration tools designed to allow users with little knowledge of web programming languages or markup languages to create and manage website content with relative ease.
A robust Web Content Management System provides the foundation for collaboration, offering users the ability to manage documents and output for multiple author editing and participation.
CMS allows non-technical users to make changes to a website with little training - a website maintenance tool for non-technical staff.
Don’t have time to update your site? We will handle those routine updates for you - at no extra charge!
We maintain a Google Webmaster Account for your site, ensuring that your site complies with the current requirements for the largest search engine. Other search engines typically conform to Google standards.
We backup your website every day. The backups are kept for at least thirty days, and we save the 1st of the month backups forever!
We are always happy to perform routine updates to the content of your site.
When updated material becomes available we perform the updates for you – including database structure and other components that keep your site running smoothly, conforming to the latest browser technologies.
We literally LOOK at your site on a regular basis to make sure your customers get the best internet experience.
A North Carolina native, Patrick Evans lived in Asheville, Waynesville and Hickory before moving to Myrtle Beach, SC when he was 30 years old. In 2015 he retired to his current home in Brevard, NC.
Patrick’s work experience is in the hotel and restaurant industry, where he has worked as a server, bartender and general manager. He was the on-site consultant for the development of the GuestMate© Hotel System and helped implement the system with many east coast hotels.
He began building websites in the 90’s when the internet first became mainstream, and in addition to his consultation work for GuestMate© he worked locally with businesses and individuals in IT consultation.
In 2008 Patrick formed his own company, Web Myrtle, and started providing not just web design but also hosting and domain names for his clients.
Noting the many white squirrels that inhabit the Brevard, NC area, Web Myrtle became White Squirrel Website Solutions in 2015.
In 2016 Patrick introduced Squirrel Email – a branded, private, ad-free email solution.
