Content Management System for Website

Dear Big Cheese,

I need a website, but I need a content management system built in because our services are still evolving and I would like to be able to add news every day for our clients.

Beside that functionality, we will also need the site to have a unique and almost whimsical design (we are specialty retail shop in Charlotte).

Is this a project that you can handle and can you send me references of some sites that you have done like this.


Sung K. -- Charlotte, NC

Retail Shop Owner

Dear Sung,

We can certainly assist you in creating a creative, professional aesthetically pleasing AND user-friendly website for your Charlotte-based retail business. Our designers will work with you to design a site that you are proud of and reflects the personality of your business.
A content management system is a wonderful tool for allowing you access to make content changes to your site through an easy-to-use password-protected back-end. This will give you 24-hour a day access and the ability to update news, upload pictures, create links and format text. We use Joomla to create all of our content-management site, and we are proud and excited to offer this to you. You can read more about Joomla's Content Management System on our website.
I look forward to meeting with you soon and the opportunity to work with you. When we meet I can show you sites that are similar to what you are looking for in both design and functionality and give you the contact info of these clients so that you can speak to them personally about heir experiences with Mouse and Man and the success of their websites.
Take care - Happy Thanksgiving!

Online Reputation Management

Dear Big Cheese,

When I do a search for my business name on Google, I find all sorts of things including an old complaint, an online thread about another business with a similar name in another state, a former employee's MySpace page (with some unsavory pictures!), my golf league scores and some person's blog that mentions the company. Then much later if you dig and dig, you will find a link to a directory that links to our company website.

How do I change this and make my business website the thing that comes up on a search? I fear we are losing business opportunities!

Need Business Logo and Image Package

Dear Big Cheese,

I have decided to start my own CPA business in Charlotte after 15 years of working at a big firm. I need a "look," a logo and website and an image that I can can use to brand myself. What do I need to start this process and how quickly can I get it done?

Steve -- a CPA in Charlotte

Dear Steve,

Congratulation on starting your own firm in Charlotte and best of luck! Mouse and Man is a perfect choice for your "image" creation. We are not only experts in finding the right "look and feel" for new is something we sincerely enjoy doing.
To get started we would have you meet with our creative team to discuss the personality of your new business. We will ask you questions like "who are your clients?" "What feelings do you want to convey?" and "Do you have a tag-line, or message?"
This will help us determine if we need to go steady and conservative, or bold and contemporary--or anywhere in between.
We will work on a logo, a website and your other image pieces and we can do so quickly and professionally. It usually takes 4-6 weeks to get this pulled together depending on our schedule and your availability.
I look forward to talking with you about your new project and I can't wait to introduce your new business to the world.
My very best regards,

What is SEO?

Dear Big Cheese,

I see that you do web development--but I also heard that you do SEO. Can you explain what this means?

Joe P -- Charlotte

Dear Joe ,

SEO is "search engine optimization"-- which is the process of tuning a website such that it ranks high in the search results of a search engine like google or yahoo.

The higher a website ranks in the results of a search, the better the chance that that site will be visited by a user--and those users are your potential clients, customers, etc. SEO helps to ensure that a site is "search engine friendly" and accessible to a search engine and increases the chances that the site will be found by the search engine.

Mouse and Man offers web developent and search engine optimization services from our world headquarters in Charlotte, NC.
