At the heart of every well-executed web site, is a well-conceived strategy. It's our belief that every penny spent here, pays you back in dollars. Our process is designed to help you define your online objectives, then articulate a clear and comprehensive strategy for accomplishing these objectives on-time and on-budget.
Simply building it doesn't mean they'll come. Online communities, just as offline ones, need to be nurtured and supported. We specialize in building and sustaining online communities whether it is a global network of co-workers or a local organization making connections with its neighbors. At FarmHouse Studios we employ a number of research-based, community-based frameworks - such as Communities of Practice - to support, engage and, most importantly, sustain your online community.
The most beautfiul web environment, with the most spectacular functionality, won't mean a thing if you can't update the content without contacting an elusive webmaster to add a name, change a date or refresh copy. We've developed the "most user-friendly content management systems" so anyone in your office can edit and reformat text as often as you need -- without knowing HTML coding. Already using a CMS? No worries, we also work with CMS' such as Drupal, Joomla and Wordpress and more.
A site that's difficult to navigate is even harder to tolerate. FarmHouse Studios' User Experience team combines in-depth user research and common sense to develop usable and engaging experiences. We work closely with users, information architects, designers, and engineers to develop structured interactive systems for information architecture, navigation, and user experience.
We develop fully customized small and large-scale web environments for a variety of organizations. Whether you're looking for a new web environment or the re-design of a current one - we can build it. We specialize in site re-design, micro-site creation and integration, on-line tools for both you and your target audience, and much, much more.
E-commerce doesn't need to be complex, hair-raising or hard to use. However, one-size, out-of-the-box solutions rarely meet one's needs. We design, develop and implement a range of customized e-commerce solutions ranging from the purchase and shipping of products to an on-line pie sale fundraiser that sells and coordinates delivery of over 14,000 pies.
In today's increasingly networked workplace, social networking strategies have become an integral part of many organizations' business model. Online tools such as Facebook, Twitter and others now extend the reach of an organization's web site to new and diverse audiences. At FarmHouse Studios we specialize in helping organizations develop and implement social networking tools including Facebook application development. Is everyone twittering around you and you have no idea how to "tweet"? No worries - we're here to help.
This is one of the fastest growing uses of the Web. It's also one of the hardest to harness. Taking advantage of the possibilities - from rich email to online video - requires more than technical and creative know-how. It demands a thoughtful approach that brings exciting and relevant information to the right people at the right time.
