Do you know the difference between RESPONSIVE and MOBILE FRIENDLY design? At The Web Shack, we design sites that are responsive to mobile devices. We believe it is vital in an increasingly mobile world.

Your site should adjust to the needs of your customer ... your customer shouldn't have to adjust to the limitations of your website.

The Web Shack is very excited to announce that we are NOW SERVING THE ENTIRE BRAINERD LAKES AREA!  

In 2015, we launched a second summer location in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes Area near Nisswa and Pequot Lakes, Minnesota.  Simply put … this area has always been HOME.   Now The Web Shack also has a home here – and our family is back, enjoying the beautiful lakes area and creating memories together to last another lifetime.  We are thrilled to once again call this area home and provide web design, hosting, social media marketing, and photography for the cities of Brainerd, Baxter, Nisswa, Pequot Lakes, Pine River, Breezy Point, Crosslake and the entire lakes area.

There is one critical element of internet marketing that is often overlooked …. photography. 

In a visual medium where your customer’s attention span is counted in mere seconds, it is vital to communicate your message quickly, accurately, and with maximum impact.   Your website, marketing materials, and social media presence are today’s equivalent of the store displays of the past.

Through our sister company, Archibald Studios, we provide professional photography services – including products, portraiture, headshots, real estate, lifestyle, architecture, and people – on-site at your location.  We have been telling stories through photographs for many years – we look forward to telling yours.

What is a domain name?  It is literally the address of your website – the URL (www.yournamehere.com).  In a recent article, allBusiness highlights the importance of having a custom domain name for your website.

However – a domain name is much more than a URL.  It is a name, a brand, an identity for your business or non-profit organization.   A compelling, concise, and relevant domain name adds professional credibility, and is a vital piece of a successful internet marketing plan. A custom domain and associated email instills confidence and trust in your customers – and adds that extra level of professionalism that puts you a step ahead of your competition.

We provide dedicated web hosting on a secure server that is updated and backed up daily.  In addition to hosting, we can help you register a custom domain name for your business, and set up email accounts for you and your employees using your custom domain.

Smartphone and tablet ownership has increased dramatically – over 35% since 2011 – according to a recent report issued by the Pew Research Center.   At the same time, desktop and laptop ownership has decreased.

These statistics emphasize the importance of a MOBILE FRIENDLY website.  The term often used in web development is “responsive” – meaning the site responds to the type of device that is being used and adjusts accordingly.

Not sure if your website is mobile friendly?  Contact The Web Shack today for a FREE evaluation of your site.
