Spearhead Multimedia has been building successful websites for over 25 years. Our clients benefit from our experience and expertise with Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Digital Content Marketing, Email Marketing, Performance Web Hosting, and more.
We build websites with your business and its success in mind, websites that drive visitors to your site and convert them to customers. The relationship between a client and a web developer should be an ongoing one. One that involves regular contact to help each other stay up to date. No one reads an old magazine, they may pass by the same old website, too. Changing your site regularly keeps them returning and increases your probability of prevalence on search engines. To maintain a high rank for organic seacrch we regularly submit your website to the major search engines so they are indexed often. SSL certificates are imperative for all websites to indicate the site is not hacked and is actually your site. Ask about SSL today because a non-secure site may frighten away your potential customers.
Setting up an email campaign can be a daunting task but it is a key aspect of your marketing plan. We will create the templates, set up your contact list and provide tools such as social media signup buttons, text to join and QR codes for your place of business. Multiple packages are available from do-it-yourself off to complete management of your email campaign strategy. We have received awards for our email marketing expertise and recommend Constant Contact.
Performance Website Hosting
Spearhead Multimedia websites are hosted on high performance servers boasting 99% uptime. This not only guarantees your website will load extremely fast on mobile phones, for instance, it assures it will always be available to your customers. We host your email accounts on performance servers as well for high efficiency, outstanding security and flawless delivery. In addition, we place our sites on a content delivery network (CDN) which maintain a real-time copy of your site on performance servers throughout the world ensuring your customers will access your website at optimal speed. This is crucial for busy ecommerce websites.
Remote Backup Services
Our sister firm, Remote Backup Services provides secure, encrypted offsite nightly backups of your important data for assurance, safety, and disaster recovery. Your business data is far too important to put on an external drive or trust to unknown servers with the commercial providers. With RBS you receive a daily confirmation email of your backups, your data is stored across multiple hard drives and mirror servers. RBS is fully compliant with HIPPA for sensitive medical data.
Your logo and your business name are your brand. We disseminate your brand to a spectrum of search engines and social media platforms.
Your brand is the front door to your business. The first impression. Remaining consistent with your brand and your message is key to being successfully found organically.
Would you produce a cheap product? Use free clipart for your logo? Of course not. You want your brand to represent professional products and services. A do it yourself website is the same as clipart and not only doesn’t help represent success, but it will not get you found on search engines or bring customers to buy from you. The internet changes constantly as do the backend requirements that you don’t see and those requirements must be kept up to date to ensure success. This is what we do.
Close to 35% of websites today are built on the WordPress platform. Because it’s open source thousands of developers create time-saving, convenient, and helpful programs for it. Plugins for the best security to high-speed performance and beautiful themes to customize for your brand, we can stay within budget and still make your business look like a million.
We build our websites so they’re found easily and convert visitors to customers. Our years of marketing and development experience benefit every website we create. Security is very important to us. We take care of it, you’re never bothered by it. We use programs that increase the performance of the site and keep the database running smoothly. All images are optimized for the fastest loading time without degradation. There is extensive backend work done on each site for SEO, including rich snippets, which gives your Google listing the best appeal. We provide Content Delivery Network service which keeps the latest version of your website on servers all over the world. Again for performance and load speed. You see none of this but you and your business benefit greatly.
In 2012 I found myself as a solo entrepreneur in a new city. After a handful of unsuccessful meetings with media companies and web designers, I was advised to contact Stephen Picardi at Spearhead Multimedia. I did. Within two meetings he completely nailed my design concept as well as marketing needs. By the third meeting I had a fully functional, high end, working website with media links. Stephen not only listened and fulfilled all my design wishes, he filled a social media/blog void that I had no concept of how to address. He gave me practical, concise, and effective guidance. The following several years, I had the most financially successful period of my career. I rapidly gained traction, received accolades, and engaged patients with minimal effort on my part. I can only credit this type of notable activity to the website, social media, and blog that Spearhead Multimedia had initially set up. My practice became so busy I had little time for website or social media maintenance. Thank God I had systems and Spearhead Multimedia already in place. Now, in 2017, I find myself expanding and my career evolving. Who was the first person to call? Stephen at Spearhead Multimedia. First meeting, he nailed it…again. In a few weeks I had fully functioning website. Within ten days of going live I had several phone calls, all which converted to new patients. Even a drug rep recently said, “Wow. Nice website.” I haven’t even fully utilized the social media yet. My business and livelihood cannot afford to go with any other company other than Spearhead Multimedia.

I am “technologically challenged.” I admit it, I work at it, I try to learn as much as I can and I hire professionals to help me thrive in today’s technological jungle—that’s why I work with Stephen Picardi at Spearhead Multimedia. He is not a “hand holder” but gives me the information and instruction I need to adapt to the digital world and he can solve problems that I can’t even analyze when technology and I fail to communicate. Stephen built me a new website and maintains it so I know that it is constructed properly to communicate my professional message in the right way, with the right audience. He gave me WordPress 101 instruction so I can navigate my own blog. I trust I am in goods hands and that’s a BIG relief to a techno-fobe! Marilyn DeMartini Writer, Marketer, Fitness Professional
