San Diego Drupal Web Services

Services

Let's face it - There are many companies out there that can design a nice looking website. However, only a handful can create a site that is intuitive, easy-to-navigate, expandable, responsive, SEO-friendly and also easy for the site owner to update.  We understand that behind the site launch and operation of every successful website, or service is considerable attention to the business goals and requirements. Coolclick.com designs beautiful, custom easy-to-manage CMS-enabled web sites. By utilizing Drupal as a CMS, our sites give siteowners and managers a back-end administration experience just as great as the front-end site.

Coolclick.com also works with other Web Development and Ad/Marketing agencies that are simply overloaded and can't meet their own demand, or have inherited a Drupal project.  We are easy to work with and have over 14 years experience with web development. We have clients in San Diego, across the nation and across the world. Let out experience problem solve, project creative ideas and anticipate challenges before they even arise.

Drupal is a community-built website development tool. Once we customize your Drupal site to your needs, the software allows you to easily create, update and manage a website without requiring a lot of technical know-how. Drupal uses a point-and-click interface to let you add pages, menus, images and file uploads and it enforces security, so you can apply permissions to different kinds of users. As your website grows, it's easy to add custom features from the thousands of free modules you can download. Drupal is highly regarded as one of the best website frameworks available and is rapidly gaining adoption all over the globe.

Search.Engine.Optimization.

Drupal is a very 'Search Engine Friendly' platform, so by just having a CMS website you are already taking key steps to getting your website naturally ranked on sites like Google, Bing & Yahoo. However, we take additional steps to ensure that you are getting the most out of your content to ensure best ranking. 

Before starting a project, we meet with our clients to discuss Search Optimization planning. It is important that we understand what people are looking for and how you can help them to find it before we create a site navigation and hierarchy. If our clients are creating content, we ensure that URLS that are generated when creating content are 'clean', and we install modules that will generate clean Titles and URLS automatically. Site Maps are also generated and submitted to Google Analytics before launch. These are just a few things we do for our clients and we're happy to 'coach' our clients on how they can take advantage of their self-generated content and get some prime ranking without having to hire expensive SEO companies.

Google Analytics

Before we launch any site, we will set up a Google Analytics account for each client. Contrary to popular belief, Google Analytics can do most of the things more advanced analytics suites can do, except Google does it for free.

For those of you who don’t know, Google Analytics is a web statistics service that allows you to see how many people visit your site, what pages they go to, and where they are coming from. It’s a free service, and it works by sticking a piece of Javascript in your HTML code that loads when someone visits your page.

But, that only scratches the surface: it also allows you to create specific campaigns, goals, funnels, and reports that builds actionable data-sets and provides key insight into otherwise nebulous data. Most people have analytics set up, but a lot of them fail to dig into the data and miss golden opportunities to optimize their site. Every time you change the copy, structure, or design of your website, your web analytics suite will tell you what you should change (and whether you should make any changes in the first place).

With the growing popularity of pads and smart phones, we have shifted our focus to Responsive Design. A responsive web design uses "media queries" to figure out what resolution of device it's being served on. This web design approach is aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones). Flexible images and fluid grids then size correctly to fit the screen. If you're viewing this article on a desktop browser, for example, try making your browser window smaller. The images and content column will shrink, then the sidebar will disappear altogether. Responsive design does require more programming time, as instead of creating a site for a desktop browser, several 'versions' must be created to allow for the new media sizes (pads, phones, etc.) At this time, Coolclick.com will only create Responsive Design sites with Drupal. For more information, please contact us.

We use Commerce and Uber Cart as our eCommerce applications with Drupal. Before we start your ecommerce project, we will go over different options based on your needs and products to select the best solution for your business. We will assist you in creating a shopping experience from product to display to final checkout, and review all the steps in between to make sure that your users will easily be able to check-out while you are not missing any important information about the process.

While we have worked with other carts, we do recommend the Drupal applications to best integrate with your CMS. Core Features of both Commerce & Uber Cart: 

  • Create product types with custom attributes
  • Dynamic product displays
  • Order management, line item
  • Payment method API, allowing many different payment gateways
  • Tax calculation / VAT support
  • Discount pricing rules (Create situations/rules for codes and sales)
  • Deep integration with systems like D7's Fields, Views, Rules and Entity API.
  • Additional functionality is provided through contributed modules, such as Shipping, Stock, Coupons, File Downloads, Paypal and more.
