Your most important communications tool is your website. Is yours up to code?

If you don’t have a website, or if your current one isn’t communicating effectively due to an outdated look, usability issues, non-compliance with Web standards, or for reasons unknown to you, MarComm can help.

At MarComm, we provide Web analytics, and can conduct expert reviews and usability testing to determine what’s wrong with your website, while ultimately offering a variety of solutions to fix the problem. We also offer full-service Web design and development, as well as Web-specific content, such as SEO, so that your site not only looks good, but also ranks well. And thanks to Conductor—a customizable and proprietary Web-based Content Management System (CMS) developed by MarComm—once your new or revamped website is live, you’ll have the power to easily manage content, quickly view detailed statistics, and effortlessly build custom databases. Of course, support is something we take very seriously, as well. So, if you ever need us, we’ll be here, on campus, to respond to any request.

You can’t work every minute of every day, but your website can. And it should. If it isn’t working for you, contact us today, and we’ll make it our job to ensure that your website does its job.
