In Fine Order Testimonial


I so appreciate how easy it has been to work with Justin over the past 6 years. He is professional, efficient, full of great ideas and always willing to hear my perspective and suggestions. I consistently receive feedback about how fabulous my website looks and believe that this is giving me a distinct, competitive advantage in my field. Without a doubt, this is a service second to none!

Adding Videos In Joomla

Most online video providers include an option to embed their content using iframes and require that it be added at the source code level. Thankfully, there's a great extension for sites using Joomla that makes embedding videos a breeze!

Does Your Website, Um, Suck?

How many times have you visited a website, only to dismiss it almost immediately and click elsewhere because, basically, it sucked? When it comes to your site, it's important to look at usability for your potential and existing customers. The following points will hopefully address what your site may or may not be taking into account.

First Impressions in .2 Seconds!

Did you know that a new visitor to your website will form a first impression in two-tenths of a second! In about 2.6 seconds users will focus their attention on the area that most influences their first impression. These statics come from eye-tracking studies conducted at the Missouri University of Science and Technology. And while great content helps, first impressions are 94% related to a website’s design.

Website Maintenance 101

With most modern day Content Management Systems, maintaining your website is as simple as editing a Word document. As long as you have an internet connection and a modern web browser (we recommend Chrome, Firefox, or IE9 or newer), you can add or edit your site's content.

about dryfive

Our Process

Initial Correspondence:
We review a client's requirements and develop a quote for the project.

Collect Required Content:
We collect and review content supplied by the client (textual content, existing site content, artwork, imagery and video).

Project Development:
Once all content is received, we implement the site's framework (content management system), look and feel, apply the appropriate navigation, organize and apply supplied site content and apply the project's specific functionality.

Review & Administration:
The project is opened to the client for review. We also review the CMS administration functionality with the client before taking the site live.

Project Delivery:
The project is moved to its live state and is now accessible to the public.


What's required to maintain my site?
You need access to a web browser (we recommend Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) and an Internet connection to use the administrative area of the CMS (content management system). No other software is required.

How long before my new site is up and running?
Timelines for completion differ from project to project. Our entry level CMS projects normally take 10-15 business days.

Do you require a deposit?
We require a 50% refundable deposit of the price agreed upon in the project's contract, payable by credit card or by cheque.

What other costs should I expect?
An annual fee for web hosting and domain registration/renewal from your host of choice (we recommend SiteGround hosting) is the minimum you should expect with regards to any ongoing expenses for your website.
