Web Development in Manistee, Michigan and Greenwood, Indiana

Cure Interactive specializes in creating web presences for small businesses.

Before we can help your business, we need to understand it. What do you sell? Who wants it? Why do they want it? Those are some of the questions we will need answers to, before we can begin contemplating an effective online presence.

Once we understand your business, we can begin offering solutions to your online problems. One of the most common problems we see, are businesses not being found in online searches. To solve this, all the sites we build have Search Engine Optimization (SEO) built into every page. But simply being one of the top search results on Google isn't enough. Once a user has clicked that link, you have on average 15 seconds to get them interested. Much longer than that, and they will go somewhere else.

This brings up the second biggest problem we have seen with small business sites- accessibility. At the very least, your site should be easy to read, and be useful to the visitor. This means having good contrast between text and backgrounds, relevent content, cross browser compatability, and a mobile friendly design. Just this year, mobile web browsing has exceeded desktop browsing, as this handy graph will show:
