When you work with AKEA Web Solutions on a project, our approach is to look at your company from every angle to ensure the end product is exactly what you need. We will help you make the right choice for you.
As you begin your website journey with our team of experts, you’ll quickly see that we focus on helping you communicate your message and brand effectively, while engaging all of your customers. That’s where accessibility comes in. By creating a site that is accessible from the beginning, there will be no barriers that prevent anyone from finding your message. It may surprise you to learn that the World Bank reports 1 billion people (15 percent of the world’s population) experience some form of disability and one-fifth of that global total (between 110 million and 190 million people) live with significant disabilities. That is a significant number of consumers that your company needs to accommodate.
Not only is it smart business, we believe it’s just the right thing to do.
When I was growing up I was taught to always leave any place I visited better than when I had arrived. That mantra has lived with me since. As I have grown AKEA with my team, I have surrounded myself with people who live the same way.
After the creation of your site:
- We want you to be better, stronger and more confident – with a website that not only promotes your company but encourages inclusion and growth.
- We want you to be invested in your site, so you can be fully engaged and operational.
- We want you and your company, to be better off because you worked with us.
If you choose to work with AKEA long-term, we will strive to increase your company’s value.
Sometimes, the people we work with have existing websites that were built without no consideration for accessibility. The thought of starting over on any project is overwhelming – and we know that. But we will work with you to give you the best information, the best approach and the truth (even when it is scary) to get you where you need to be. We will help you find the most useful path forward to fully prepare your company for the future.
When you work with us, we’ll treat you as a friend, with transparency and a genuine heart. Rest assured, we will follow the industry’s standard for web accessibility called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, (and Section 508, when applicable), the most recognized standard. We will guide you through the process to confirm that you are meeting all requirements.
We are also experts in WordPress, the most popular platform available for websites with over 30% of the market share of the world’s existing websites. WordPress is easy to operate and because it is continuously upgraded to make websites better. We believe it delivers the best value for the majority of businesses’ needs.
With each project, we ask ourselves how we can use our expertise in online marketing, website accessibility and website building to better serve our clients. We are committed to offering them the best value, to teach them the true worth of their site and to make sure we’re leaving the world a little better than it was yesterday.
We look forward to working with you.
