Creative Web Design Process
We love strategy, scheduling and planning. We find joy in setting a goal and a list of tasks, checking them off and then seeing the successes they bring. Planning is the most important aspect of a web design project. We’ll work side by side with you to put together an exceptional web design plan that keeps everyone accountable and delivers results.
Planning is the most crucial aspect to building an awesome website. It takes a lot of experience to perfectly plan a website and schedule, and to set achievable goals. We start with a kickoff meeting. This is when we learn everything we can about your business. Who is your target market? What do you really want your website to accomplish for your business? From this information, we discuss how we would recommend building the website to best express your message and achieve your online marketing goals. We then create a written plan that details in simple language every functionality of the website, all deliverables and timelines. We want to ensure everyone has a full understanding of the project…before we begin.
In the design phase we utilize all the information we collected from the planning phase. Our creative gurus then translate that into a visual representation of your business in an awesome website design that’s unique to you. Our designs are very modern, clean and easy to navigate. These aesthetics are important to make your website successful. That’s because clean and easy to navigate websites are proven to convert and generate more leads into customers, compared to content heavy websites. Once our website designs are complete, we provide you with a mockup of the site for review. Then, with your feedback we make any necessary revisions. Once you’re happy with them, we get the designs approved for development.
In the development phase, we build out the website as designed in the earlier stage of mocking up the website. The majority of our websites are built in WordPress. That’s because it’s open source that’s very easy for our clients to manage, and it performs great in SEO. We are more than capable of developing in a wide range of other platforms and CMS. You can view a full list of the languages and software we develop in below. Once we have finished the development of your new website, we upload it to a test server and supply you with a direct link to the site. You then have the opportunity to test the site and review it.
On the go live date, we migrate your new website onto your business’s domain. Website hosting is set up based on your preferences. We can move your website live onto your hosting provider. Or you can choose to use website hosting provided by us. Our website hosting has some special features which include automated website updates, backups and impeccable speed and up-time. As soon as we put the website live, we do one final review of the website to make sure everything works exactly as it was meant to. We then add some finishing touches by making sure the site is secure, adding an SSL certificate, and connecting it to a security firewall or CDN system.
Have you heard the saying “If you build it, they will come”? On the internet, that isn’t necessarily so. Websites perform best when they’re marketed, the same way your business does. After the launch of your website, we help you promote it. Using the information we gathered in our initial planning sessions and knowledge we gained while building your website, we’ll bring marketing ideas to the table you might not have considered. That could include online marketing strategies like SEO services, a Google AdWords campaign, social media advertising or email marketing. We may recommend a customized marketing mix that combines different strategies to promote your business online, draw more visitors to your website and convert more of them into customers.
Industries We Serve

Businesses that sell directly to consumers, often have some unique traits. Consumers are educating themselves more and more before making a purchase. Having a strong web presence and a well designed website is imperative to the success of selling to consumers. Although not unlike the work with do with our other clients, we do tend to focus more on helping our B2C clients understand the importance of a web presence, and the role different types of content play in the purchase decisions. Our B2C website creations often include sections with testimonials, product comparisons, video demonstrations, white papers, case studies and blog articles. These different types of content all play a role in the purchase cycle.
When we work with B2C clients, on their marketing campaigns. One of the first questions we dive deep into, is understanding their target market. We need to have a very detailed understanding of who these people are, so we can create a plan of where to place advertisement that these type of people will see and find. When working with B2C clients, the marketing mix can be endless, if could simple include an SEO campaign and Social Media marketing, or it could be as extensive as including social media influencers, video commercials, tagged remarketing campaigns, and much more.
Working with entertainment clients is always fun, as the websites we design for these clients also have to portray to visitors of how much fun they could have colling to this venue. The style and layout of a website design is key to visitors to the website becoming leads, or just hitting the back button and choosing to spend their money somewhere else. Our web design team gets very creative with our entertainment clients, and our clients appreciate all the work we do for them.
Marketing is a huge undertaking for an entertainment client. They are often fighting with lots of other competition. So having a well balanced marketing campaign is imperative to the success of the business.

Our SEO services are proven to work, with many success stories. Our clients have told us that they have had to hire on more crews and staff to meet the demand of projects once they had SEO done to their website.
Food & Beverage
We love food, and a few beverages! When working with our food & beverage clients, one of the most important aspects to a website design is how the product is visually portrayed on the website. As people know in the food and beverage industry, packaging and presentation is almost as important as the product inteslft. And that is no different when developing a website. We recommend professional photos to be taken by our food & beverage clients, so that we can display their products on the internet as they truly deserve to be.
We have a lot of fun with our online marketing campaigns that we run with our food and beverage companies. We often use a mix of SEO services, Social Media marketing, Google Adwords campaigns, and building a strong web presence on various food related websites. One unique aspect to this industry which seems to be a bit more important than others is reviews. We work with our clients to improve their reputation management, with tools that make it easier for our clients customers to leave them positive reviews. And we put in some checks and balance features, to try to reduce negative reviews from making it onto the internet.
Startups are most often the companies that have the most unique and groundbreaking ideas, products and services. We at Gooder Marketing spend a lot of time with our start up clients to understand what their vision is for their business and their short and long term goals. We often spend more time educating our start up clients, and to set realistic goals. In many cases start ups are working non stop with their minds focused on multiple things at a time. We understand this and help to take the burden of additional work building our a website. Our clients trust us to do the job we specialize in, so that they can focus on growing their startup.
Choosing the right marketing strategy for a Startup is crucial, as they have limited budget, and no room for error. We work with our clients to understand their target market and help to find what we call “low hanging fruit” In many cases their are fragments of a market that have not been heavily tapped into by other competitors, or when it comes to SEO, there are sometimes keywords that get forgotten of un noticed, that can be quickly utilized to bring in online traffic and leads. Our goal for all our clients, not just start ups is to provide a good ROI on your marketing investment.
Continuous education is an ever growing trend. If you have something you would like to learn, do a google search and you will find a handful of training providers, no matter how obscure the subject may be. At Gooder Marketing with have helped clients build websites, for preschool, private school, universities, safety training, and specialty courses such as cooking and mental health. The most important aspect with an education website is having a very good UI, so that visitors to the website can easily navigate the website. We strive to make the education part on a website clean and easy.
Some of the online marketing we have done with our education clients include Search Engine Optimization, Social media advertising campaigns, that target a very specific audience, and Google Adwords campaigns. A mix of these three items, in most cases is a perfect marketing mix for education clients.
Transportation is a large part of an economy, it can involve public transportation, freight and shipping, and travel in the sky, on the water or on a rail. With such an extensive array of transportation types it is hard to wrap all of these into one category. However our process when working with our transportation clients is quite similar to how we work on many of our other web development projects. The one unique aspect that we often do see in these types of website designs, is the need for ordering, tracking, support and overall management of the service for sale. We help our clients accomplish these goals by implementing various pieces of software together. The website becomes more of a gateway to these softwares, and allows for our clients customers to easily navigate through the process of purchasing.
The online marketing campaigns for our transportation clients is also quite extensive. A variety of tools can be utilized, dependant on the target audience of the client. Most often we approach a project with a mix of SEO services, Social Media and paid ads.
Dealing with healthcare clients can sometimes be a challenge, due to the regulatory rules and regulations set in place by governments. In fact when dealing with medical patient information that gets processed through a website, requires a qualified and registered developer with a certificate that allows them to work with such type of material. The protection of private data is very important in the healthcare industry. With that said, we do not work on any type of project that passes private medical information through a website. But we do work with medical clients who need a new website. We have helped many health care clients design a website, and integrate tools that help run their business more efficiently, such as scheduling softwares.
At Gooder Marketing we enjoy giving back to the community. Each year we work with a non profit or community program to help improve their website or web presence.

The Manufacturing industry in Canada is an important sector of our economy, and we have seen some very innovative products built by our clients. A website plays an important role in showcasing a manufacturing company to prospective buyers and companies. Our clients have given us great feedback in how their company and sales teams have benefited from a revamped and redesigned website.
The second part in which we help with is the online marketing side. A fancy new website and an amazing product is great, but if no one can find your website, what good does it really do?

In Fact being a small business competing within online shopping is often much easier than the big box stores with so many limitations. A majority of our Ecommerce websites are built with WordPress and Woocomerce, however we have also worked with Shopify and Magento. We have worked with clients that sell their products globally, and with clients that prefer to just sell locally. When building an ecommerce website, there is a lot of planning involved, and with the experience of Gooder Marketing, we will be able to help guide you through the entire process.
Real Estate is a very highly competitive market across Canada. Within our particular market here in Barrie there are over 900 real estate agents for a population of under 200,000 people.

Gooder Marketing is an accredited developer for CREA which allows us to develop websites that integrate into a real estate agents real estate board and pull listings from the MLS onto the website.
For the internet marketing aspect of our real estate clients, we are very open and honest. In most geographic locations it is very difficult to rank on the first page of Google for real estate keywords (unless you're a larger brokerage, or a real estate agent with an extensive history) For a majority of our real estate clients, we help them capture leads through Google Adwords, or through social media advertising. These two online marketing tactics can work great to drive new leads for either buyers or sellers.
In recent years we have seen a shift in the styles of law practices and their websites. The new trend is to show a more colourful, friendly and inviting atmosphere while continuing to uphold the strong professional impression. We feel we have accomplished this with our website designs for law clients. We help our clients throughout the branding and marketing process, weather it be setting up a photo shoot at the office, or rebranding their logo. Our website development teams always enjoys working with our law clients.
We also help our law clients with their online marketing and SEO services. When a problem strikes people turn to the internet and often do a Google search for a lawyer or paralegal. Showing up for these types of search is what we excel in succeeding. Primarily for our law clients we focus on SEO and Google Adwords. Having a dominant position in SEO gives our clients a dominating foot hold over their competition. While Google Adwords allows us to build out unique and highly targeted marketing campaigns for our clients. These two solutions are a perfect mix for online marketing.
We love to learn about the latest and upcoming gadgets. So it is natural that we like working with these types of clients. Website designed for technology are often promoting a product or service. Our technology website designs often include the following content types, as they help in the buying process of customers; testimonials, product comparisons, video demonstrations, white papers, case studies and blog articles. These different types of content all play a role in the purchase cycle.
Sometimes marketing a technology product or company is challenging, due to the fact that their product or service is relatively new. If and when that is the case, we turn to more of an educational marketing approach. We often accomplish this through email marketing and social media.
Sports & Fitness

We enjoy working with sports and fitness clients as it is a natural fit to what we enjoy doing in our down time. Often these types of sites are designed to be clean and simple.

For the most part a majority of our sports and fitness clients focus on a local target audience, and SEO and Social media marketing is a great fit for their needs. We work with our clients on a budget that suits them, to deliver them new leads and customers from the web.
Small Business is one of our favorite types of clients to work with.

We find this the most rewarding with our small business clients.
