Whether you are looking for web design, corporate branding design, advertising copy or email creative, Stable Express can make it happen for you while keeping your corporate branding goals in mind.

Web Site Design is based on Strategy
For example, if your strategy is to be seen as the deepest discount marketer in your category we would design things entirely differently than if you had decided to position yourself as the most reliable marketer in that category.
Strategy dictates execution. - We have experience in a huge cross-section of business categories and have developed winning strategies for all kinds of businesses, big and small. We know where to probe and what questions to ask.
When client`s have a strategy, we respect it and immediately set to executing it clearly and directly.
IF YOU ARE ALREADY A RECOGNIZED BRAND
After strategy, maintaining the integrity of a brand becomes the next most important thing to focus on. Your web site should present the visitor with the same friendly familiar face he or she is used to outside of cyberspace. We don`t re-invent the wheel. We look for all the things that make you, you - and incorporate them as naturally as possible into your web presence.
Corporate colours, logo and any tag line used off-line, are almost always incorporated into the web site design.
We design for your audience and make it easy and comfortable for the first time visitor or the 50th time they come back.
Remember, having the flashiest web site isn`t for all people or clients.
Research shows that a very high number of people online will switch brands after researching the product or service they are searching to purchase. This has nothing to do with bells and whistles but rather with the user experience of quality of information, level of expertise and trust.
IF YOU`RE NOT A RECOGNIZED BRAND
The whole point of being recognized as a brand is to accrue the value of trust. When people recognize the mark of a product or service that they have had a good experience with they are more inclined to trust that brand to do a good job again, even if it`s for a different purpose. Over time it is the value of the brand that gathers equity. Building a brand requires taking the longer view.
This is the approach we favour. Because it`s where true success lies. If you doubt this, just look around you..
We know web design, we`ve created many and we can get you started.
Web Site RedesignIt`s obvious that web sites need continuous improvement. Just browse the web and you`ll see sites that are looking old and obsolete. There are many other reasons to redesign your site. Some of them are not obvious but are at the core of the site. It is no longer good enough to have a static website. It must capture attention, have new information and engage the visitor or else they`re gone to your competitors site.
Success on the internet can be a mix of the right design techniques and the right marketing strategy. Conversion rates, retention rates and a good customer relationship management strategy are what make a web site a success.
Success can be measured by longer term customer retention and values like total web site and marketing costs, total number of homepage hits, total number of unique orders placed, total number of hits on other pages and total cash value of web site orders.
Visitors to your site are only interested in one thing: "What`s in it for me?" Make it your goal to answer this question quickly.
