With a beautifully designed website, you have the power to grab your customer’s attention; with seamless functionality, you have the power to keep it. Our design team has the expertise to not only create a beautiful and custom website, but also one that is designed with the user experience in mind. With a custom website designed by Fortress, you can bring your brand to life online.

Web development is what turns ideas into reality. The way your website functions and performs is dependent on development. Our team of website developers is well-versed in custom coding (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and more), as well as platforms like WordPress and Webflow so we can deliver any type of functionality that you envision for your website experience.

Writing for the web takes a multifaceted strategy that combines style, conciseness, SEO strategy, and calls to action (CTAs). Our experienced team of copywriters and content strategists have the skills to communicate with your unique audience while also meeting SEO and UX goals. Make your website your most effective marketing tool with Fortress’ copywriting capabilities.

User experience (UX) and user interface (UI) testing are essential in ensuring that your website is visually appealing, easy to navigate, and user-friendly. These tests identify any possible bugs or roadblocks for the potential user and allow us to deliver your customer the best possible web experience. At Fortress, we utilize several testing tools and A/B testing to create the most seamless customer journey possible.

Fortress provides best-in-class web hosting services that ensure speed, reliability, security, and accessibility. Each of our websites is secured with an SSL certificate as well as other cybersecurity safeguards. Fortress can also help your brand research and purchase a unique web domain that will effectively boost your marketing efforts and brand recognition. Additionally, we can help you get your website ADA compliant quickly, which is a requirement by law for all websites. Let us handle the technical side of your website so you can focus on using it to grow your business.

Apps can help brands stay connected to their customers and users from their mobile devices, and can allow businesses to provide their services on the go. Fortress provides app design, coding, testing, and deployment so you can put your brand in the palm of your customer’s hand.
