The internet has made many people rich beyond their wildest dreams. It has also taught people that success can be fleeting. The difference between both of these extremes is having knowledge of the medium you're working in, an understanding of where the internet has come from and where it is going, and in most cases an experienced professional that can guide you step by step in order to help you develop your idea to it's full potential.

Organic search rankings are great because they bring your site traffic and don't cost anything. The only problem is that if you are a brand new site it usually takes some time before your site starts ranking well for keywords that are searched for on a regular basis. When you are waiting to get ranked it is a good idea to start up a pay-per-click campaign.
The most known pay-per-click program is Google's Adwords. This program allows you to be featured on the first page of any search term in exchange for payment when someone clicks on your ad. These ads are placed at the top and the right side of Google's results pages. The higher you want to show up on these pages the more you have to pay for each click.
Paying for a top ranking of a highly searched keyword may seem like a sure fire way to cash in, but can be more difficult than it sounds. There are many factors that go into everything from what keywords you should be paying for to what should be said in your ad. The idea is to use very specific keywords, so people who know what they want can find your ad easily. For a monthly fee we will set-up and moniter your pay-per-click campaign and keep track of those who are clicking on your ad's and make sure no click fraud is taking place.
Online Shopping Cart
One of the most important web applications for an e-commerce website would have to be an online shopping cart. We have the know how and the capabilities to incorporate this feature seamlessly into your site. When you want to buy an item you click the add to shopping cart link and 1 of that item is automatically placed in your cart. You can then view the contents of your cart and change the quantity of items or even remove it completely. Once you have finished your shopping you simply click the check out button and fill out your personal information. Once the form is submitted you get a confirmation email.
The integration of databases is crucial to any online business. They store all kinds of important information about your users, orders placed, and items in stock. I have extensive experience with MySQL databases and have used them in many forms of online applications. I prefer to work with ColdFusion or php when creating applications that utilize databases.
