What are GRIDNYC Advantages?

We bring together marketing, technology, and creativity

Website is a powerful communication channel which can reach a multitude of audience. As marketing communications specialist and website developer, we possess the knowledge, experience and technical know-how to design, develop, and construct your website that ties together your product info, marketing message and other critical business information.

It takes creativity to attract today’s audience; they can remove themselves from your site with a click of the fingertip. Your message must be strong, clear, and to the point. Your marketing strategy doesn’t have a chance if it isn’t seen.

We know how to best present your business

Today’s marketplace is highly competitive––more and more companies are fighting in the same market space and offering similar products and services. A well-designed, polished company website can be a deciding factor that sets you apart from your competitors.

We know how to make your site easy to find!

Reinforce Your Brand Value

Website is a company’s business card. A well-designed, state-of-the-art website reflects a company’s value proposition.
From a Brand Value perspective, website is a device that can reinforce a Brand’s four primary measures (four pillars) –– Differentiation, Relevance, Esteem, and Knowledge. They are consistently linked to a Brand’s ability to deliver revenue and profit for its owner.

UX: Facilitates Site Visitors

Information architecture, usability, and human-computer interface design are at the core of User Experience (UX), which is also one of our major design focuses.
UX design means taking site users’ needs into account at every stage of the development, from usability of the home page to adding products to a shopping cart to sending the confirmation email… etc.

A user-friendly website represents a user-friendly organization.
