Do you have website shame? The Repositioning Expert felt SHAME from her previous website. It was doing nothing for her, and it looked like something out of the 90s. As a marketing consultant, The Repositioning Expert realized that her website was holding her back. She needed a marketing hub of a website that could manage her podcast, blog, offers and future landing pages - all while looking and feeling modern. Once the project was finished, it wasn't long before she informed us that her new website helped sway the decision of a high-profile lead into working with her.
Benchmark Advertising needed their website renewed. They offer real world marketing, but they needed a hand with their digital marketing. Their website wasn't working for them - literally, it wasn't working! They needed to showcase their street side advertising and have a place to display all their locations on one map for clients to choose from. They wanted to work with us every step of the way on their web design project, and we were happy to do so until the final product met all of their needs.
We were enthused to work with a brand as big as Safeguard Canada. Like the others, they needed their website design renewed, but they wanted to do it with a .CA domain to increase their online presence in Canada.

Their website now ranks above all other vendors in Canada, and accommodates their many products and services. This web design Ottawa company has been working with them for some time now and continue to develop a lasting business relationship.

If there's one thing that I learned in starting The Shirtless Web Guy is that standing out is essential in any competitive industry, especially in the Ottawa website design industry. Standing out could mean having a website with a great design that compliments your brand. It could mean increasing your online presence and search rankings so that your website is easily discovered. It could mean taking off your shirt. Now you may be too humble to do the latter, but we can help you achieve the former. Choose a Ottawa web design company that knows branding and knows how to stand out from the competition.
