What you are all about
You own (or work for) an outstanding business that deserves to be seen, heard, and remembered. Your business is extremely important to you and not just a hobby, so your company has a least one full-time employee (even better if that’s you) that strives to not only deliver excellent services and products but also grow the business. You know running your business takes hard work, and there are no shortcuts to success. As an experienced business owner, you do what it takes to get your business to where it’s supposed to be. You are already delivering outstanding products and services. But you also know that website, branding, and marketing isn’t your field of expertise, and understand that it’s better left to a professional than to try a DIY approach in the little time you already have. After years of hard work or extensive research and business plan writing, you’re fully ready for your business to take the next step and make an impact on your customers and clients through an outstanding website, branding, and more.
You know your time is better spent running your business than worrying if your website is experiencing problems. You’re also looking for someone with a solid background in marketing who brings at least a decade of experience to the table to give you the tools you need to succeed. After all, You want a website that doesn’t just look pretty but fulfills a purpose for your business and makes your life as a business owner easier. You understand that you need more than a new website, but rather a tool that helps you show off your business in the best light possible to increase business, win contracts, hire new team members, and more.
As a business owner, you want it all: a great design with a solid strategy behind it, worry-free upkeep so you can focus on your business, an unbeatable price for a project completed within a timeframe you set, and of course, no risk for your business. That is where we come in – and over-deliver.
What you value
Since 2013, xox Media has been trusted by dozens of businesses, big and small, across the country. We help businesses just like yours navigate the complex world of website design (and more!), saving you time and allowing you to focus fully on your business. Your brand, website, and online marketing efforts should communicate clearly and openly with your target market, genuinely sell your services and products, and help boost your business seamlessly. And that’s exactly what our core values reflect: reliable, quality work that your business can afford.
No matter the size, needs, or budget of your company, we offer packages that are affordable for any business. Our packages are specifically developed to not have any setup or upfront fees, making them accessible for businesses of any size, and designed to reach your goals within your budget.
All of our projects are backed by a money-back guarantee, no questions asked. We want you to not only be comfortable, but also happy to be working and growing with us. We offer the full money-back guarantee on each and every one of our projects so you and your business don’t have to take any risks and are protected.
We help businesses create online presences and branding materials that they can be proud of, and are strategically developed based on our analysis and with your goals in mind. Your website should not just sit there, it should add value to your business, and make your life, and your clients' lives, easier.
You will not be stuck in a long-term contract while working with us. All contracts we offer are on a straightforward and simple month-to-month basis, and can be upgraded, downgraded, or canceled any time to fit your business needs. Giving you the flexibility your business deserves.
Many business owners work with us after the disappointment of working with past companies that overcharged them, left them vulnerable, or went completely unresponsive. We selectively choose to work on a very small number of new projects at any given time to ensure we can focus fully on the setup and maintenance of our clients.
As a business, we know the frustration of calling hotlines, finding chat buttons, and waiting days for an email response. If you want somebody that takes your success personally—and if you want to call and talk directly to your developer instead of a customer service representative—then we’ll make a great team!
What you ask
To fully concentrate on your business, we take on a maximum of 2 new clients per month. This approach allows us to focus on the setup of your website, work in unison with you, and come out ahead of the timeline you have in mind for your project. Working this way means you never have to wait for us.
Our clients are our greatest asset, so we only take on those we strongly believe in. Some of our clients are in the medical field, others are in interior design, architecture, and construction. Many of our clients are B2B or GovCon businesses. While we currently offer some of our clients an online shop extension, we currently do not accept purely online shops or dropship businesses as clients.
Our current clients include the following industries:
- Interior Design
- And more
Yes, we actually offer two guarantees!
10 Day Guarantee
We have completed the process within 4 days and less, but have also stretched out the process for clients who prefer to take their time. We only take on a very small number of new projects at any given time to ensure we can fully focus on every setup, and providing a seamless experience for you with high quality work and results exceeding your expectations.
Money Back Guarantee
As a fellow business, we aim to not only save you time, but also make your business life easier and more worry-free. We know first-hand, how stressful it can be to outsource crucial work for your business. We want to take the stress out of it, so you and your business don’t have to take any risk and can enjoy the experience of having everything taken care of for you without having to take any risks.
Other website design firms charge a large one-time, upfront fee, plus regular charges for ongoing maintenance. In contrast, all of our plans include only an ongoing “all-encompassing” monthly fee that’s in the same price range as what other firms charge for maintenance. This helps you stay on budget and save time. We love seeing satisfied clients, and it’s worked so well that we have no plans to ever require an upfront fee.
No. All work for our projects is completed by us, right here in Washington, DC. We believe in close, personable relationships, and a reliable, timely quality of work that is sustainable for years to come.
A modern, up-to-date website is the first step to leaving a great impression and establishing credibility to your website visitors. To encourage visitors to explore your site, the website content and structure must be strategically designed. That is why we first focus on creating the strategy, then implementing that strategy with outstanding design. Your website visitors will not only be welcomed with a great first impression, but leave with a last impression after exploring what your business has to offer.
Even though all of our work is completed right here in the nation’s capital, our clients range from the DC/Virginia/Maryland area, up to New York, and across the country all the way to Oregon and California. Thanks to Zoom, Hangouts, and other invaluable communication applications, we are able to conveniently and effectively work with clients from all over the country to help them navigate the complex world of website design and branding, without compromising quality.
We love building out exactly what you have in mind! It is always great when clients come to us with a vision in mind for us to build into a reality. While we don’t edit other developer’s websites, on occasion, we work with businesses who have come to love their old website that’s lost its functionality over the years. We can rebuild an updated version of your old website — not just with improved looks and functionality but will also be sustainable for years to come.
We offer a 10-day turnaround guarantee on every one of our projects. But, we also know that fast timelines are not for everyone. Some businesses with their hands full prefer to take a slower approach, instead deciding to handle the process of content creation over a period of weeks or months. We match any timeline preferred by the client, making the process as convenient and interruption-less as possible.
Our relationship with clients is built on trust and longevity. We work hard to gain our client’s trust after a (typically) disappointing experience with their previous website studio. For that reason, we value honesty above all and ensure everything is not only completed to both their specifications and our agreement, but we strive to significantly exceed your expectations. No matter what timeline, budget, or features you’re looking to have integrated, we thrive on honesty and keeping the promises we make to your business.
xox is a reference to the game X’s and O’s (or Tic-Tac-Toe). Even though it might seem like a simple game at first, it requires analysis and strategic thinking to keep up with your competitor, just like Marketing and Communications. To come out ahead, you have both a clear advantage if you show initiative and make the first move over your competitor. To succeed, you have to align your three pieces in one row, which are Analysis, Strategy, and Management. xox Media was born out of the idea to help businesses align those three components in our website, branding, and other offerings, so you come out ahead of your competitors.
We want you to receive the most value out of our plans for your business. That is why we created three eBooks that we exclusively created for our clients.
Content That Converts
Many business owners struggle when it comes to creating intriguing website content. My marketing and communications background enables me to assist you in creating effective content for your website in-line with your goal. This guide is a guideline of content ideas and gives you a head-start in the content creation (or improvement) process.
Creating A Buzz
Launching a website can be stressful and overwhelming. But no worries, I’m here to take the stress out of it and make this an exciting experience for you and your business. I achieve this by developing a clear plan for us to follow so we can guarantee the launch of your new website will be a success. I also created this guide to equip you and your business with everything you need to generate hype around launch, so your business can get the attention it deserves.
Mastering Your Blog
This guide was created to give you all the tools to start a successful blog, that will help you boost your business’ marketing efforts and sales. No matter if you need ideas for upcoming blog posts or help to define your audience, this guide is here not only to help you get started but also to provide you with valuable resources along the way.
All of our projects come with a fixed scope and fixed price, based exactly on your business’s needs, wants, and budget. We know how important the budget is for businesses. For that reason, we layout from the beginning exactly what you can expect from us, in which timeframe, and what exactly it will cost you. This ensures you will not have any surprise charges, staying on budget at all times. Of course, we always offer the option during the contract for you to make adjustments as your business needs change.
To be frank, the term SEO is a huge buzzword. We get a lot of clients who tell us that they want to “work on their SEO”. But they’re only saying that because they saw it online somewhere, and not because they understand what that actually means. It basically involves digging deep into your website and optimizing every one of your site’s pages for search engines to find you better. It’s a lot of work. It’s a lot of trial and error. Despite what tons of “free guides and videos” will tell you, there is no quick or cheap solution for SEO. It’s a very long, very expensive marathon. And one you likely won’t finish first place in. Because we do not feel comfortable charging clients for so much work without guaranteed results, we do not offer SEO services. We are more than happy to provide you with a few tips to get you running with some basic SEO, as well as making sure that your site is built with Google’s best practices in mind. For more advanced SEO, we’re more than happy to provide you with some help vetting SEO firms (to avoid expensive mistakes for you).
We are long-term partners for our clients, and are always here when you need us. We’ve become trusted partners for our clients–no matter if they need a second opinion on their marketing strategy, website copy, and much more: we are here to help. Because of this, we’ve established a referral program for our clients, to pay them back for their kindness in recommending us. Clients receive a $300 credit to go towards their invoices.
Few things are worse for your business than your website being hacked. It doesn’t just destroy credibility with your customers, but also sees you being penalized by Google and other search engines. We do everything we can to keep your website both functional and secure. In addition to implementing firewalls and various security implementations, we are on 24/7 alert, and are notified if something happens on your website. We also examine all website security reports every Monday. If something suspicious occurs, we know right away and intervene.
