I can’t say enough about what Firefly has done for our online presence. They gave us a flawless start-up plan and through the years have continued to meet all of our needs. They have given us a product which allows us to rate among the top online entities in our industry. They are easy to work with and extremely capable when it comes to understanding and exceeding our goals.
The folks at Firefly were able to not only create a website that functions in the ways that my brand needs, but they were able to make a site that actually celebrates my body of work. They created something that really made my work sing in a whole new way. I really can’t praise them enough.
I’m so grateful for my fabulous website & even more so for the care and attention it gets for critical updates to keep looking so good! Y’all are the best!

Firefly came on board pre COVID-19 shutdown in March, right as our biggest fundraiser of the year started. As a non-profit we rely on fundraisers to sustain our association. The event quickly had to convert to virtual for the public to access it, Firefly did an amazing job during the transition. We are thrilled with their dedication to their clients, the great teamwork they demonstrate and the willingness to work with us on our needs. Firefly is very positive note for our association during this uncertain 2020.
Mobile Friendly Websites
Today, everyone is on-the-go and mobile is king. Google has recognized this and they now rank websites in search results based on a site’s mobile capabilities. At Firefly, all of the websites we design are responsive. This ensures that your site is just as user-friendly on a smartphone as it is on a desktop. We do thorough testing on several devices and browsers, then make customizations to ensure that your website looks its best on each screen and application.
Firefly learns about your organization and listens to your needs. We follow with related research, strategy, and solution development. The result is proposed solution, timeline and price.
We initiate the project in a kickoff where we review the proposed solution and the work required. We review deliverables, timelines, deadlines, the project process and key success factors.
Depending on the solution, Firefly develops a design concept to present and review for approval. If its a custom app we present interface designs and requirements documentation.
In this stage, we take the conceptual work and bring it to life. We produce usable collaterals, websites, ads, logos, billboards, applications, and more depending on the the type of work we’re doing.
Once the work is produced, it is thoroughly tested by the Firefly team and the client team to ensure everything works as planned. Adjustments can be made at this time to meet set goals.
Now that the work is complete, we present it to the client’s audience. This includes taking websites live, posting digital products, sending out print collaterals and promoting the launch in various channels.
The Most Important Step
Your marketing isn’t a static piece of art, it is a living enterprise that should continue to grow. Clients who opt into SEO contracts or other ongoing marketing services will experience the continued evolution of this phase.
KEEPING YOUR CONTENT UP-TO-DATE
Easy to Maintain
All of our websites are designed on the open source platform WordPress. This makes editing your own content a breeze. After the launch of a new website, we have a training session with each of our clients to show them how to maintain their content by replacing photos, updating text, adding blogs and more.
Website Hosting & Updates
One of the advantages of Firefly is our hosting retainers. We help keep your website up-to-date and more secure by performing quarterly updates to WordPress core, the theme, and the plugins to ensure that your site is functioning properly. With Firefly, you can rest easy.
Unlike other hosting providers we will perform continued maintenance to your website on a per project basis. This can be anything from adding a new custom feature to your website, creating a custom landing page, or simply updating content you don’t have the time to get to. We are here to support you as much or as little as you require.
LEARN ABOUT THE PROCESS
Website Design FAQs
Creating a website can be a lengthy and complex process. First you must purchase or register a domain name if you haven’t already, then gather ideas and inspiration on design. After that, you build a sitemap, design the site, add content, test your site, and launch. It seems overwhelming, but with the help of Firefly we work to make this process as intuitive as possible.
Responsive web design refers to the ability of a website to resize itself or “respond” to changes in device. For example, a website with responsive design will be able to look the same whether it is viewed on a computer, tablet, or phone.
Google, and other search engines, places greater importance on websites that are user-friendly and more specifically mobile-friendly. If your website’s design makes the user’s experience better and easier, Google will likely rank your site higher than others in their results.
Modern web design focuses on meeting the needs of the user. You want users to have positive interactions with your site in order to gain potential leads and earn customer loyalty. Without an emphasis on user experience, your site will likely lose traffic.
A great web design focuses on usability and ease of navigation, clarity, consistency, simplicity, visuals, mobile compatibility, and speed.
