COVID-19 Update: We’re open. Let us know if we can help with any website issues.
Welcome to Team 218 Web Design! Let’s get right to it.
What’s the most important step in creating a website?
We believe it’s research (what we call discovery). Before writing a single line of code or considering any design layouts, invest the time to learn about you, your business and what you expect out of your website. Consider how your business was formed, what you do, how you do it, and how you are different from your competitors.
Why? Because your website should be a extension of your business reflecting your values and philosophy. It should be able to convey what you do, how you do it, why you do it and what makes you stand out from the crowd. Your website is often the first thing a person sees when learning about your business and you never get a second chance at a first impression.
Our intent is to build your website so it suits your business perfectly and makes you look amazing online. When you want proven web design in Iowa, you want Team 218 Web Design – Great Websites Made in Iowa.

Why Should I Choose Team 218 For My Iowa Web Design Project?
Two words – customer service.
Remember when businesses used to actually provide service? They didn’t act like they were doing you a favor by having you shop with them. Nobody assumed you wanted to bag your own groceries or check yourself out.
Businesses provided Customer Service – remember?
It wasn’t only a courtesy to their customers. They knew their customers were essential to their survival. They also thought of customers as a part of their extended family. A trust and a bond developed between a business and its’ customers.
We still operate that way. That type of service is the cornerstone of our business.
Our goal is to never let a customer do something with their website that is not in their best interest.

We love WordPress as a development platform.
Rock solid and reliable; WordPress is the engine behind almost 34% of all websites on the internet.
This large user base ensures this platform isn’t going anywhere. It is expandable and customizable. The popularity of WordPress ensures immediate resolution of any security issues.
And WordPress isn’t only for blogging anymore. Its’ continuous evolution has transformed it into a solid CMS (Content Management System). The website you’re viewing right now is built with WordPress!

Responsive Website Design
Laptops, Tablets, Phones & Wearables. It’s not practical to design a different web page for each of these different devices.
So how do you make sure your website works on them all? Media queries to the rescue! This bit of code determines the screen size of the device reading the page and adjusts the layout to match.
Another approach is Fluid Design. The normal pixel unit of measurement is replaced by vw (viewport width) and vh (viewport height). These units of measurement represent exactly 1% of the viewport. Fluid designs adapt automatically based on the size of the screen available.
Any website built today should be responsive!

Social Media Marketing
Social Media Marketing has been around for a long time. We used to call it word of mouth advertising. Now instead of 1 person telling another it can be 1 person telling tens of thousands!
If you’re not using social media, you should be. You should strive for consistency across all the social media platforms you use.
If your website is www.bestwidget.com then you should try to use the same naming convention in social media. Your Facebook page should be Facebook.com/bestwidget. Your Twitter account should be twitter.com/bestwidget.
Google MyBusiness is rapidly emerging as an important component of Local Search. It’s a must have for any serious search strategy.
