Websites are incorrectly thought of as digital brochures. Your business website cannot be just an Internet display like an online flyer. Well developed business websites have become central marketing hubs and consoles for sales data control and dashboards for content leadership. These are the smart, successful and profitable companies. DDC is a business development service, not just a design service, the emphasis is on development in a dual sense of the word. Develop as in (1) back-end internet coding and (2) front-end business authority and useful tools. Most people think “We just have to create a website and it will magically generate sales traffic and earn us a million bucks”. Maybe you’re thinking that once you launch your website taking your business online, it will open the floodgates to sales. Sure, you can create and launch a website quickly, but then what do you do? You wait. You wait for the mojo of the internet to bring in new customers which actually never happens unless you know how to launch correctly. Launch means much more than just making your website “Go-Live” Maybe you’re wondering about the sites that get picked up really fast, like within months of a launch? You know what’s common in all of them? THEY LAUNCH RIGHT. They get indexed fast. They don’t get penalized by search engines. And they provide a great user experience right from the go. You’re a business owner, don't be looking for just another website; instead, you’ll want to accomplish specific business goals. You’ll want an ON-LINE BUSINESS not a website. Design Data Concepts is an on-line business creator, providing extremely effective tools for accomplishing these goals.

Your most valuable and important asset is your customers. Who are your customers? How do you communicate with them? How do they interact with your company website?

That convenience contributes to lower web-design costs and invites developers to enhance the system.
