Web Design For Startups

Custom packages

what you're getting

With a custom, open-sourced, full-featured site by Javelin, here's what you're getting. We provide robust Milwaukee web design and development for startup companies and social enterprises. To get a new venture off the ground is a huge job. At the top of your list: the company website. It has to convey instant wow. And it needs robust visibility in the major search engines. That process starts organically during construction.

We extend it with viral and paid advertising. Consider budgeting for them even before even sketching out your killer website. In making your startup website, our level of engagement can be custom-tailored. If you mainly need technical development, we can stick to that. Or we can create your entire website from scratch, including copywriting, visuals, brand development, design and promotion. Just tell us exactly what you need.

Best Web Design Tools For Startups
Select Your Tools

A modern website is a technology hub. For whatever we need, there's an app. In your case that means something called splash. Most likely you are launching into a highly competitive marketplace with some long-dominant players. You need to grab visitors by the throat and convert them into rabid customers dying to tell everybody about your killer product. Yet, splashiness can't distract from the takeaways we want to impart and the actions we want the customer to take. The recipe has to be mixed "just so." Along with splash apps, you'll also want to deploy some organic SEO heavy artillery, because otherwise your killer product might as well not even exist!

Econo solutions for startups

low-budget hosted builders

Let's be real. Not all startups are well-funded with a substantial budget for a killer website. Many a Microsoft has been founded in a garage, a kitchen or a dining room, or out of the back of a panel truck. For you there are the hosted DIY website builders. They use prefab templates with little customization possible. You'll have to live with whatever rudimentary apps are offered by the company's closed ecosystem. But there are no upfront costs. Pay just a modest monthly fee - albeit forever. Simplicity and reliability are other upsides. And these products are completely coding-free. Here are four popular econo solutions. If you need professional help with one of them, call for a quote.

Drag-and-drop builder known for hip, sleek templates. Favored by creatives for displaying and selling their work. If you like splashy and now, this might be the one. Good for image-heavy sites; so-so for text-heavy sites. Offers minimal customization options. New and improved admin interface, plus built-in tools for SEO and many more mandatories including e-commerce. Business plans start at $26 a month.

Omnipresent hosted website builder lets people who know less than nothing about websites create a website. Might be a little more difficult than Squarespace for some users. Has the greatest number of templates. Drag-and-drop layout system is more robust. For years was reputed to be not good for SEO, but the basic tools are there. Pricing runs with the pack. The Wix starter Business plan costs $18 a month.

Ultra-easy hosted builder targets extreme untechies who like having fewer choices. The company kept it simple by making it impossible to make even small changes to their templates. All homepages use one layout. Covers the usual related mandatories but on a barebones basis. Still, that might be just your ticket. A Business Premium plan costs $9 a month. Beware ad hoc service fees and surprise price hikes.

Perennially, wildly popular among people starting businesses on a shoestring. Built from the ground up for a business clientele. Their truly free plan makes them the best option if you don't want to spend even a penny on your business website. Great for very small businesses, but scales poorly. Under new owners, showing signs of atrophy and neglect, relative to hungrier competitors. Just $16 a month for the Professional plan

Our style is whatever works best for you.

become iconic

What we do is more like web branding. It pushes the envelope of conventional web design. Come to think now, let's feed that danged envelope into the shredder.

We stand apart from other local web designers in that many of our projects go beyond building a better website, to building a stronger brand. Sometimes for startups; other times for mature companies which have had some struggles; or find themselves facing new, tougher competition.

Javelin provides comprehensive, integrated digital marketing built outward from distinctive custom websites, informed by the best practices in branding, such that in building your new website we can cite a strategic rationale for every creative choice along the way.

We aren't into making sweeping, dogmatic proclamations about which web design philosophy reigns supreme over all pretenders. That's because style is plastic. Our favorite style is whatever we the agency and you the customer jointly determine stands the best chance of getting the best results.
