Custom Web design For Small Business
Affordable Websites for small and mid-market companies
We are a Chicago website design and development company, specializing in responsive WordPress websites for small businesses and mid-market companies. We don’t believe small and mid-market companies should have to settle for a poorly designed or overpriced website.
Our Website Design Team
Our web design team has created websites built on the WordPress platform for over 8 years. To provide the most value for your business, our designers not only have web design built into their DNA, but also SEO.
Our team is small, resembling a boutique web design firm, which keeps cost down while still remaining agile for our clients.
Over the years we’ve heard alot of things about what we couldn’t do with our small team – and we ignored them all.
- They said we couldn’t create amazing websites with teams of 3 or less – we do it all the time.
- They said you need teams of project managers, designers, and developers to create amazing experiences – we say, that just bloats the price.
- They said you can’t create a website using local Chicago designers and developers for less than $4,000 – we say, we can and we do.
- They said you can’t launch a great website in less than 3 months – we say, most of our sites are designed developed and launched in under 2 months.
WordPress Web design & Development
Generate traffic and convert visitors into customers with a new website design. Our designs are developed and built by local Chicago designers, programmers, and CSS architects, and utilize the WordPress CMS so you can easily edit and add new content. Because we have a strong background in SEO, every website we design and build comes with SEO built into it.
Your website is the face of your business online, and like it or not, the design of your website says alot about your business. People visiting your website judge how trustworthy and authoritative you are, and how comfortable they feel buying from you based on how professional your website looks.
There are many common mistakes that small businesses make when embarking on a new web design project including: the design becomes too busy or flashy; there is no clear call to action; paying too little or too much for your design; having stale or out-of-date content; and finally, probably the biggest mistake is taking the DIY web design route.

Our Web Design Process
From the first step of understanding your marketing and business goals, to the creative planning process, design, and quality control, our Chicago web design agency works hand-in-hand with you to optimize your web presence and shape your brand.
The first step is always about information gathering – identifying things like the website purpose, goals and target audience
A plan includes a definition of the site map, structure and technologies that we’re about to use.
Not only we focus on wireframe models and the visual style in this stage, but also on the usability of the user interface for the best possible user experience.
A very important part of the process is choosing the right text, photos or videos – all optimized not only for your visitors, but also for search engines.
Here we actually CREATE the website using the HTML Markup, PHP, and Cascading Style Sheets with some help from databases and other technologies.
We test all the technical features, like code and scripts, compatibility with major browsers, but also we ask ourselves if the website really fulfills its purpose.
After we launch the site, our job is definitely not done yet! We always monitor what’s happening after the start, enabling us to fix any possible deficiencies.
I was at a standstill with my new blog and needed that extra push to make it a success! Bill Ross at Linchpin SEO was my savior! He listened to what I wanted, knew exactly what I needed and helped to launch the blog to the next level. In a world where customer service is dead, Bill and his team restored my faith in what it means to love what you do and to really understand your customer. Alison Victoria, TV Host Kitchen Crashers
In helping us launch our blog, Bill was strategic about the overall vision but also tactical enough to suggest small enhancements, spending extra time to find solutions that fit our needs and worked within specific guidelines. You can tell he really cares about his clients and about producing a good product — he was extremely responsive and proactive every step of the way. Lindsay Knight, Chicago Ventures
