Website Design Dayton Ohio

Web Design

Website design has evolved dramatically over the years. When we entered the market back in 2003 Microsoft was selling FRONTPAGE and everyone with a copy became their own defacto self web designer and companies were even launched using the product to develop websites for customers.

Competing in the market of "Web Design" for entry level companies was daunting simply because of the amount of competition. Everyone thought because they had a copy of Frontpage, or Dreamweaver and a number of other boxed website software solutions that they qualified as "web designer". And quite frankly some of them were excellent. The problem for the consumer who needed a website however was who to pick? Often it came down to knowing a friend or relative who dabbled... and that was "good enough". Certainly the price was right.

So, we were always competing against your "wife's cousin, Frank who knows how to build a website". How did 50Bubbles survive in this environment? Design was a commodity. That was obvious.

I never even thought to ask that question until I went to Google today and typed in my own business in a search. Google has a way of introducing things that sneak up on you.
