There’s this idea that web development is just following a recipe

At a lot of digital agencies, web developers are treated like line cooks. They’re given a recipe — a pinch of design and a cup of content — and then told to serve up a website.

Not coincidentally, a lot of businesses hate their own websites. (We know because they’ve told us when they need a new one.)

Of course, we’re not most agencies. We’re Rebels. And we think about website development services completely differently.

Rebel’s technical experts are involved at every stage in the process

Our web developers don’t start with a design. We start with business goals in mind: what are you trying to accomplish? Why do you need a website? Who is going to interact with your website, and what do you want them to do?

After all, (almost) anyone can make a website that looks nice. Not just anyone can make a website that solves problems, meets your needs and unlocks opportunities — let alone find the most efficient way to do it — and, yes, still looks nice. That’s what makes our technical team different: our holistic, solution-oriented, conversion-focused approach.

We know our tools, and we pick the right one for the job

Yes, we’ve got technical skills. Our team has experience with (deep breath) PHP, .NET, HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, Ajax, XML, SQL (hold it), WordPress, Drupal, SharePoint, Sitecore, Umbraco, Jekyll and the rest of the Jamstack (almost done), Magento, Bigcommerce, Shopify, Volusion, WooCommerce and more (and, exhale). We also do (one more deep breath) iOS and Android apps, augmented reality, systems integration, custom APIs, intranets and portals. Plus we can check out whatever custom, proprietary or legacy system you’re using.

Whew. The thing is, it’s one thing to have a whole bunch of tools in your toolbox but quite another to know which one to pick for a certain task. We’re not just WordPress developers or PHP website developers; we’re deep and holistic thinkers who take your objectives into account and make the right recommendation. If you have a tool you want us to use, that’s a great starting point; if you just have an objective in mind, that’s even better.

Either way, there will be Rebel technical experts involved in your process from the beginning, weighing cost, complexity, time and efficiency to help us pick the right tool, or combination of tools, to meet your needs. We work with proven solutions so you’ll know you’re getting a product that works — and we’re always innovating, trying new things and customizing solutions to find a better way to get the job done.

Deep, holistic technical strategy

From digital strategy and technical analysis to implementation, management, and execution, we take a strategic and holistic approach to everything we do. Once you’ve got your dish in the oven, it’s a little late to change the ingredients. (You could do it, but it’s going to take longer and won’t taste as good so you might be better off starting over.) We know what questions to ask and what steps to take when we create the recipe so we can get it right in the first place.

If that sounds like the right approach (and it should!), then you’re in the right place. Contact us today to get started.
