Our first step together is understanding what you need and what we can deliver. This includes the setting goals to finish the project on-time and on-budget. We gather information of what where you are currently and where you wish to be in the future.
DETERMINE SCOPE OF WORK
After learning about your needs, we can determine the scope of work. Often we can break the project in phases as clients often have budget and time limitations. This allows us to have a long-term.. game plan to grow your business.
We need to study your business, your competition and your target audience. This information helps us develop insights to provide a competitive edge: differentiation. A clearly articulated website and brand increases profits and produces loyal customers. This approach helps keep your site free of clutter that distorts the focus of your business.
DESIGN & DEVELOPMENT
With a good plan in place, we design a website that integrates the ideas and strategies weve uncovered. Along with the copy-writer, designer and developer, we work together to produce a meaningful experience and well-functioning site for your visitors.
People need new. Once the site is up and running it is important to keep the content fresh and the look and feel of the site current. You may choose to implement some of the following strategies:
1. Marketing collateral to support the website
2. Implement an eNewsletter campaign
3. Search Engine Optimization
4. Press Releases
5. Web Advertising: Links, directories, pay-per-click
Remember, websites are like teenagers: they grow, cost money, take time, stay up all night and always need feeding! Let us know how we can help you grow your business.
Green Bird Media gives away a ton of business start-up while building your site. Please don't waste your time like I did trying to buy web design services on the cheap. (And yes I tried to do it myself and failed miserably). It's no wonder San Diego's Senior Corps of Retired Execs gets Green Bird speak all the time about internet marketing. Not only are they talented designers and developers, they really seem to engage in your business idea. It's like your success is their success or something. In fact, I call the principle, Susan Rust, "Save-My-A** Susan" (pardon my Francais) because honestly I don't know where I'd be right now without Green Bird.

My introduction to Susan was as an instructor for the workshop 'Internet Marketing 101' through SCORE. Susan has a wealth of knowledge and she can explain a very complex topic in easy to understand language. I highly recommend the class. I had the pleasure of meeting with her after class and her insights and clear, no-nonsense, simple approach to something (a business startup and web-site creation with shopping cart) that is no doubt even more complex than I was aware of at the time. I now know what steps I have to take in preparation so I will be ready to create a successful company. Ursula from TickBeeOff.com (very soon)

Awhile back I was trying to set up a site for my at home business, with very little luck. Apparently, I didn't know as much as I thought. However the same could not be said for Susan. In just a short period of time she was able to help me figure out what I needed, and how best to implement some of the great ideas. Now the site is far better that my original ideas, and I couldn't be happier.

Susan Rust and Green Bird Media enabled the church's IT Web Design Committee to meet their goal of a web site designed to attract those looking for a new church; portray St. Bart's as a place to worship and serve the Lord; and to describe St. Bart's as a community resource. The web site is easy to navigate, maintain and update. Susan is a most creative person in web design and branding. Green Bird's technical staff is worthy of five stars for their tremendous support and ingenuity. I highly recommend Green Bird Media.

When I met Susan I had allready spend precious time with some other people. I though I was never going to find somebody that could understand my ideas I was wrong, Susan is like my guardian angel in busines beucause, I had the idea of what I wanted and that was all she need it. She design my logo, my busines cards, my trucks and of course my website, they are by far some of the best designs I ever saw I'm already getting calls form people that saw my truck on the street, my web site started showing on google first page only one week after she started to work on my SEO I say don't waste your time like I did, see Susan and her staff they truly are the best.

We were just starting our organization and came to Green Bird with some very sketchy ideas of what we wanted for a web site. We were so impressed with the indispensable input Susan provided in helping us shape our ideas to meet our needs. They developed our web site, logo, and a great "look" for us. The results were simply outstanding and far exceeded our expectations. Since then, we have relied on Green Bird to develop numerous business and marketing materials for us. We have received tremendous feedback on every one of these products. They always surprise us with the quality of their work, their valuable input at the development stage, and the remarkable talent they apply to every task. All our requests are handled quickly, efficiently, and courteously. They have proven to be an invaluable asset to our organization.

Susan and Green Bird Media produced a website for my company, IdeoLingo, that exceeded my expectations. The development time was quick, service was professional and Susan took all my requirements and concepts into consideration. She is one of the few web designers I have met who has the ability to successfully integrate the technical (clean code, good use of metatags)and aesthetic aspects (strong colors, streamlined layout)of web design. A friend who is a web developer reviewed my website and commented, "You got more than your money's worth." I highly recommend Green Bird Media.

When I contacted GreenBird, all I had was a small idea of what I wanted. They helped me channel my ideas into a reality in a very prompt & courteous manner. They explained things to me and gave me choices. I never felt pressured into anything. They went above and beyond in helping me to get my website up and running. I can not say enough good about the service I got from Green Bird Media.

What can I say! The people at Greenbird Media were instrumental in helping Connections Church shape the visual and technical need for conveying our church's vision on our website. The continued customer care is warm and friendly. I get the sense that it's not just about the money but about partnering to make an impact. Thank you Greenbird Media.

The people at Green Bird Media take extra care to understand the needs of the client and GBM delivers a service that is customized for each client. I manage a small non-profit and we have seen an immediate impact in terms of higher web hits for our organization.

While it's true Green Bird did my stationery and my website, their help went way beyond this. Green Bird got me going. Green Bird challenged me to purify my message, make clear what I had to offer. Then they laid it out on line in an engaging, logical way. Potential clients as well as colleagues are impressed by the site. Recently, after seeing my website for the first time, several people have commented that I will have more business than I know what to do with. In fact, things are going well. Green Bird is very responsive; they listen well; and they give good suggestions. I couldn't see myself using any other web service.

Susan and her staff worked with me in getting my web site up and running. That helped me with photo's, word smithing, layout and their beautiful design and layout of the site. They were always helpful and available with answers and concrete direction and support. Thank you, Dana Ansell of Dakini Engineering

Green Bird worked with us to help define our new company image and were extremely helpful. They listened carefully, asked intelligent questions, and then presented a very well thought out media plan that was both eye-catching and professional, eagerly incorporating our feedback. Their service was prompt and more than met our expectations. I would highly recommend them to others in our position.
