Businesses Small & Large, We Got You!

The Power Of Web Design

It’s no secret that websites are essential to a modern day business. If someone tells you to check out the new restaurant in town, do you take the chance and go eat there, or do you google it? Nowadays, your customers are most likely going to google it, and what shows up, will often determine whether or not they give you the chance.

Your website is your business card, your online address, and your identity on the world wide web. Not only does your website provide a statement on your professionalism, but it gives those who are searching for your services a place to go. In the physical world, the last step of the search should land them at your front door. And in the digital world, your front door is your website.


“70% of consumers will go to a store because of the information they find online.”

Developer / Designer / Thunker

I am a Web Developer born & raised in Northern BC. Code is my game, and HF-IT is my business. HF-IT offers website services to businesses and organizations alike. I’ve been a programmer and IT consultant from the age of 14, and a tech-tinkerer even longer. I live, sleep, and dream in code, and I prefer to do things my own way. My goals in web design are to help you sculpt the website that you envision, in a way that nobody else can.

Why be stuck with a website that isn’t working for you?
When websites need updates and repairs, HF-IT can be your digital mechanic. With fluency in all the programming languages your site runs on, there are few things we can’t make a reality. Not every new idea, requires a new website.

JavaScript

The browser-side moving parts are handled in Javascript.

You’re a business owner, I’m a website writer.

Search Engine Optimization

SEO is both an art, and a science.

What is SEO? It’s the the act of optimizing your website’s content for both humans and search engines. Every single website on Google is read by their web crawlers, page by page. Your website is then ranked based on the content, keywords, URL structures, and meta tags. We optimize to ensure that when someone searches for your business/industry, you’re in the top results in your area. Every website can benefit from SEO treatment.

Yoast SEO

Yoast makes it easy to manage SEO tags and content directly from within WordPress.

No Broken Links

Broken links cause issues not only for your users but for search engines too. We can fix that.

Google Analytics

Analytics makes keeping track of page performance easy. With Google Analytics integration, you’ll never be in the dark.
