Design is at the heart of all we do at Front Porch Solutions. Design is what catches the eye and complements every other component of our solutions, from programming to email marketing to hosting.
Our design services include, but are not limited to:
Branding and Identity
Your brand is a long-term message communicating your mission, vision, values and, more generally, a personality. We can help you determine the visual, emotional and cultural images that comprise your brand’s personality to perfectly represent the entire company down to an individual product or service.
When you work with Front Porch Solutions, you will quickly see that our sites are different. Our experience in both design and web technology creates a chorus of art, functionality and usability. We combine creative ideas with sophisticated design principles to create websites that are clean, visually appealing and easy to navigate.
Whatever medium you use to share your message, we can create a variety of shapes, sizes and colors to help you send it, handling everything from traditional advertising avenues (e.g., newspapers and magazines) to direct mail, flyers inserts and more. We believe print design starts with an idea and ends as a work of art.
Interactive and Media
While we focus on the importance of graphic design and functionality, we have the fun stuff covered too. Want streaming video of your CEO’s weekly address? An interactive map of your campus? Front Porch Solutions offers these services and more, as we understand the added value of multimedia elements and interesting content for you users.
As with all our growth-driven services, our development services are tailored to your specific business needs. The continuous development of your brand is important, which is why our services cover both your internal custom software needs, such as a customer contact database, and your external software needs, such as your website.
Not sure what custom web applications your business needs? Our experienced team is happy to recommend solutions with demonstrated success that we know will work for you.

Our development services include, but are not limited to:
Custom Web Applications
In the digital age, having an established presence on the web is crucial to brand development and awareness. Centrally locating your application on a secure web server makes access easy for your employees and customers, wherever they are. Front Porch Solutions has an extensive background developing applications for our clients including helpdesk systems, project management solutions, conference registration tools, web-based reporting, online calendars and more.
Dynamic content is simply what the name implies: web content that changes in real time. Often powered by databases, dynamic content allows web pages to populate content in response to a user’s specific requests. Some sites need blogs or simple news feeds, while others need more extensive, integrated data management solutions. Whatever your needs may be, we’re well-versed in the latest technologies.
Our programmers are experts in creating custom, secure e-commerce solutions. Not only will we develop your online store, but we will also help to market, maintain and support it. From new business owners to established companies looking for product line expansion to new customers, we’ll implement an e-commerce solution that’s right for you.
Often an overlooked component in development, databases can quickly become an overwhelming mess of information. However, we consider database design an integral part of our development service package. Front Porch Solutions develops databases from start to finish, ensuring your data is manageable, accurate and easy to update. We can also integrate your database with your website and other technologies for the most uniform, efficient business practices possible.
If you’re in need of an intranet but aren’t sure where to begin, Front Porch Solutions can develop internal web resources based on your organization’s unique needs, including document libraries, searchable employee directories, electronic calendars and digital asset management solutions – all powered by your pre-existing databases and business systems. Most importantly, every website we create is protected by secure firewalls, ensuring your information is safe from hacks and viruses.
Front Porch Solutions offers ongoing web maintenance services to every client, which includes hosting, SEO, software upgrades and more.
When it comes to the production of your services, the possibilities are limitless. We understand your website is more than just an online business card; it’s the vehicle that drives all of your marketing strategies.
From the very start, Front Porch Solutions will work with you to determine your marketing goals, and from there we will integrate our creative visions and ensure the end product helps you reach those goals. And once we roll out the finished product, we will continue working to see how we can expand upon your goals and continue your growth.
Our marketing and maintenance services include, but are definitely not limited to:
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
We don’t only make your website look nice – we also make sure users can find it by implementing effective search engine marketing (SEM) techniques. Front Porch Solutions specializes in creating search engine-friendly websites by finding the right keywords to focus on and incorporating them into your site. We develop a thorough SEO strategy which includes keyword-rich copywriting, design tactics, proper back-end coding and link building, all the while not compromising on content relevance and readability.
If you’re looking to bring more people to your site fast, a pay-per-click online advertising campaign (PPC), may be an excellent option for you. PPC drives traffic to your website by paying a per-click fee for special placement on search engine results pages. We will create a custom campaign and manage it to fit your needs and your budget.
We make it our responsibility to help with every one of your marketing needs, even beyond online marketing. From high-resolution graphics to printing and mailing to follow-up, Front Porch Solutions has the expertise to conduct a direct mail campaign with high response rates. We’ll work with you to develop print campaigns which align with your online marketing to ensure branding consistency.
Email Marketing Campaigns
A clever and personal email marketing campaign attracts new customers and builds relationships with existing ones. Through Lettair, our customizable email platform, we can help you create highly targeted e-newsletters with quality content, high deliverability rates and an in-depth analytics dashboard.
Media in print and online present opportunities for display advertising. As a branding method or as a promotional marketing method, Front Porch Solutions will partner with you to develop a creative ad and find the placement best suited for you.
Social Media Marketing
Trust us when we say that smart online marketing includes a solid social media strategy. With all the available social channels out there – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram and blogs, just to name a few – it’d be silly not to take advantage of them as a marketing opportunity. Front Porch Solutions advises every client on how to incorporate social media into their online marketing campaigns, and if viral marketing is your goal, we have the capabilities to produce link bait in the form of videos, widgets, articles and more.
If you’re interested in creating or growing your social media presence but aren’t sure where to start or simply don’t have the time, our savvy internal social media team offers social media marketing plans customized for your needs and budget. Contact us today to start something great!
