The ultimate goal of any website is to attract, engage, influence, and convert visitors. To accomplish this, we must first understand your visitors—their goals, roles, and personas. We must also understand the competitive landscape, content resources, functional requirements, analytics; and we must explicitly define site objectives.
With the project clearly defined and research in hand, the creative team constructs interface wireframes. Graphic design compositions soon follow, but not without strategic review and scrutiny. It is certain, profitable design is deliberate—every single pixel—and must meld form and function to lead visitors toward predefined marketing goals.
Finally, we bring the vision to life. Using cutting-edge technologies, our specialists develop each site mobile-up, user-optimized, and Google-ready. At launch, we initiate the search-marketing action plan derived during strategy, driving qualified traffic to a site designed for conversion. Updating the site is effortless via the content system selected.
We give you the power.
We build every website with a powerful content management system so you can administer your own website.
WordPress is a breeze for even the most novice users. Create posts and pages, format them easily, insert media, and with the click of your mouse, content is instantly live on the web. WordPress is a very powerful tool with an infinite number of options!

The first crucial step is to define the project, which starts with a discovery meeting. Following introductions, we learn about your organization, understand your goals, and begin to understand your visitors’ goals, roles, and personas. We also discuss our methodology and the strategy required to build a successful website by all measures, including the key performance indicators you define.
The project team determines and directs each milestone and every task required to define, design, develop, and deploy your website. Through every stage, your project manager guides the way, insuring a seamless and enjoyable process for you and your team. As the primary point of contact, the project manager clearly communicates with you as we methodically journey toward deployment.
Responsive design provides an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with minimal resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from mobile phones to desktop computers). RivalMind will design your website with a unique mobile experience that matches the overall style of the site (responsive design), so your content will look great on every device, every time.
Updating your content is effortless using the website content management system. Akin to using a simple word processor online, the site administrator securely logs into the website and then navigates to the page she wishes to edit. After making the corresponding updates, the administrator simply saves the page and the site is automatically updated. Content updates are solely in your hands.
Plan for success.
The design process begins with blueprints, known as wireframes, to identify the paths and placement of strategic and influential content.
We build every website with strategic purpose—tangible, economic goals. Thus, we start with wireframes to define page zones, architecture, key functionality, and content placement—the fundamental building blocks that lead visitors toward conversion. We also develop a style guide, prescribing fonts, colors, and interface elements to communicate brand identity.
