In order for websites to truly thrive, they need web development. It is not just about the actual creation & construction of the site. Patrick Zarrelli, the CEO of Dependable Website Management, found out how important web development was when he was running his Print Killer Media Network. It was then that he discovered that it was much more profitable and would be a longer term solution for his clients if they adopted the web as their main portal for their businesses. Over time, more and more clients “drank the Kool-Aid” and Zarrelli had a full client list that rivaled his print media company.
Wikipedia defines web development as the broad term for the work involved in developing a website for the Internet (the World Wide Web) or an intranet (a private network). Now as simple as that definition seems to be, web development is much more complex than that. It has many layers to being a successful endeavor. From the front end of a site (the landing page) to the back end of the site (the servers).
Web development ranges from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications electronic businesses, and social network services. Other services that web development commonly refers, may include: web engineering, web design, web content development, client liaison, client-side/server-side scripting, web server and network security configuration, and e-commerce development.
Among web professionals, “web development” usually refers to the main non-design aspects of building web sites: writing markup and coding. Most recently web development has come to mean the creation of content management systems or CMS. These CMS can be made from scratch, proprietary or open source. In broad terms, the CMS acts as middleware between the database and the user through the browser. A principal benefit of a CMS is that it allows non-technical people to make changes to their website without having technical knowledge.
Through Dependable Website Management, Zarrelli has put together a web development team that can handle everything from soup to nuts. DWM offers a plethora of web development services. Custom websites, API, e-commerce, graphic design, hosting, computer and network repairs, web hosting, social media marketing, SSL security for sites, shopping cart & credit card processing, WordPress, SEO & SEM, daily blogging, Google AdWords, and even email set-up and management.
One must know by now that you must be on the internet to survive. Not only should one be generating revenue online, but it is also the best way to advertise and market your product or service. The ability to develop your brand is not only recommended, but it is absolutely essential. One might even say critical to the survival of a company and brand and identity.
