A Content Management System (CMS) is a Web application that uses a database back-end to create, edit, and store website content.

The ultimate goal of many websites is to achieve good organic search engine ranking. What is organic search ranking? When performing a search on Google or Bing what appears on the search results page first are usually 3 to 4 ads right a the top (paid for advertising), followed by Google My Business listings right below (on a map), followed by ORGANIC RANKED websites. Search engines employ algorithms to determine which websites are most relevant to your search, listing them in order of importance. Our 23+ years experience with SEO can benefit your website ranking. We utilize all our knowledge in search engine ranking, optimizing ALL components of your website and knowing exactly which other strategies contribute to high organic ranking. Our client’s success is proof of it.

Not only do we install Google Analytics for your website to collect vital data about your website visitors and their behavior but we offer expert services to analyze the data and formulate suggestions and strategies for further optimization of your website performance. Connect with us if you are interested in Google data analysis and SEO implementation.

Having a website that is responsive and mobile-friendly is a MUST for two reasons: more people browse the Internet on their mobile devices than on a laptop or desktop computer. If your website is not mobile friendly, the visitor would have to “zoom in” to be able to read text and navigate your site. People no longer take the time to do that, they will move on and find a website which is “easy to read and navigate” on their mobile device. The second reason is that Google ranks websites higher that are mobile friendly!

Online shopping has become the norm and during time of pandemic, a vital necessity for many. Sales on the Internet opens up a whole new market for businesses with almost limitless opportunities. To conduct business successfully online, the website must be visually appealing, instill a sense of trust (SSL is a must!) with a clear and easy navigation. Customers should be able to view products along with product details, add items to a shopping cart, view the shopping cart at any time, make changes to the shopping cart (delete items, change number of items ordered, etc.), and go through a smooth and secure check-out procedure to finalize the sale. If you are interested in an e-commerce solution for your business please call us and we’ll be glad to discuss your website needs in depth!

Header animations and slide shows add visual appeal to the introduction of your company or services and highlight most important facts or benefits. Our graphic design skills and marketing experience are a great asset to creating graphics that will capture the interest of your visitors – not just visually but with its message.

Would you like to integrate video and sound on your website? No problem. We can integrate and host Quicktime movies, Windows media player files, mp3 files, mp4 files, and insert YouTube video clips into your website. Need professional video production or virtual tour? We work with experts in the film/video production industry should you need a professionally produced video of your company, products, or services.

“Hi Scarlet,… Guess what? I sold about 16 Yanmar machines overseas worth over $——– because of the website you did and the great search engine optimization,…..The other day a customer told me that he spent about 20 minutes on the site because he liked it so much. I remember when I started the site my Dad thought it was the biggest waste of money he had seen and it took about 2 years before he liked the idea. He really likes it today though.”

Joe Barrett, Barrett's Equipment Englewood

The first time I met with Scarlet, I knew that she completely understood the image I was attempting to create with my website. Although discouraged against using black and white images by other website artists, Scarlet was not afraid to experiment with my ideas. After our first meeting, she responded most promptly with the first “draft” of my website, and she had a remarkable creative talent for visualizing what I described to her in our initial meeting. Her maintenance of the website and response to continued changes and updates to the website has been remarkable. I would highly recommend her services for website design, hosting, maintenance, photography, and other creative concerns involving this form of marketing.

It was our lucky day when we were referred to Media Focus from another one of Scarlet’s satisfied clients. We were totally ready to have our current website taken to a higher level, and Scarlet’s performance certainly didn’t disappoint! From our initial meeting over a year ago to our present working relationship, we have been impressed with her professionalism, creativity, expertise and prompt attention to our needs and details. Being in advertising and marketing for years, I had some definite ideas for image and content, and Scarlet listened and respected my input. Combining my contribution with her know-how, she was able to execute the project beautifully. She is extremely knowledgeable on search engines and how to position a website with keywords that will give it maximum visibility. After all you can have the most sophisticated website in the country, but if people can’t find you, it is of no value! We have had new patients on a regular basis come to us as a result of our website, and we are grateful to Scarlet for such a professional and effective website that has given us great results.

Scarlet always lends a ready ear to client suggestions and then she goes the next step and maximizes suggestions through her own talented input and wide experience. Scarlet has been (and continues to be) a Joy to work with.
Add her firm to your team for a winning play.

When hiring Scarlet & MediaFocus, I came with a pre-conceived design that demanded customization & specialties’. Scarlet & her team accepted the challenge, researched the issues and presented solutions that enhanced what we were looking for within the budget we requested. There is a definite contender in the local web market that I have already recommended to other companies. MediaFocus.

Media Focus Designs has been wonderful to work with. Scarlet is very knowledgeable and patient! She took our ideas and ran with them. Our new website was up very quickly. She went above and beyond to help us transition our email. Any changes or additions we want to make to our website are done without delay. Great company to work with.

She creates a web site that compliments the image you would like for your company. I receive many compliments on how professional and user friendly my site is. She is very service oriented and prompt in her response to your needs. After dealing with others, I am glad I found her. By working with her for better Search Engine Optimization, we have continuous visits to our web site and more business. For us, this has been much more rewarding than placing ads in magazines.
