Method 21 - Creative Web Design & Internet Marketing

Method 21 is a Houston-based Internet marketing & web design group. We create designs that look great while turning visitors into customers.

SEO, PPC, HTML, CSS, Social Media— With so many acronyms and terms flying around on the Web, it's difficult, as a business owner, to determine what will help you succeed. We've put a lot of time and effort into figuring out the right combination of existing web technologies needed to help small and medium businesses thrive online.

By now, it's common knowledge that simply being online doesn't guarantee that visitors will arrive at your site. It's also a fact that simply driving visitors to your site won't guarantee that they'll do anything once they arrive. With that in mind, we've developed a set of strategies that fulfill both of these needs: generate sustainable traffic and encourage user interaction.

Our goal is to help businesses to get more out of their online presence with design, search engine marketing and conversion optimization tactics that provide real, measurable results. We work to establish long-term relationships with our clients as we build, test and refine, to develop the best possible online marketing strategy for their businesses.

We're creative. We know design. We know internet marketing. If you're interested in having your first website built, revamping your existing website or web application or simply launching a solid web marketing campaign, get in touch with us today and put our skills to the test.

What We Do

  • Web Design & Illustration

    Design is at the core of what we do. While we do focus a lot on features like SEO and Accessibility, in the end, it comes back to the aesthetic. We use custom graphics and, in many cases, original illustrations to make our designs truly unique in this competitive online space.

    Since design is primarily about communication, we take your goals and input into consideration so that we can ensure that every pixel contributes to your online success.

  • Search Engine Optimization & Web Marketing

    When it comes to SEO, just about everyone has an opinion about what it takes to get you to the top of the search engines. That's why our strategy for optimizing involves methods that we have tested and found to be effective. No "smoke and mirrors" here.

    Unlike some companies, we don't focus solely on increasing traffic to your site. We go deeper. We analyze incoming traffic to find out what makes your visitors tick. That, in turn, gives us just what we need to convert casual visitors into paying customers. After all, isn't that why we're all online?

  • User Interface Design

    If you've spent any time on a computer, then you know what it's like to get frustrated while attempting to browse a poorly-structured website or application. If you own a website, it's important that your users be able to satisfy their needs with minimal effort.

    We can evaluate your website or application and provide you with a detailed User Experience Assessment. In addition to that, we can work with you to improve the UI of your product. This includes making improvements to the user experience, as well as enhancing the graphics in the interface so that you can be sure that your users keep coming back.

  • HTML Markup

    If you're a design firm with tons of work on your plate, sometimes you just don't have time to deal with the task of coding your masterpieces.

    We offer standards-compliant XHTML/CSS and HTML5/CSS markup services with quick turn-around. The markup is fully commented, so that you can make sense of it when you receive the final product for further in-house development.

    All markup is tested against Firefox, Webkit and Internet Explorer 6-8. More browser compatibility is available upon request.

  • Custom Wordpress Development

    In addition to our Markup Service, we can take your design a step further and turn it into a Wordpress theme. If you have your markup already done, that's fine too! We can create themes with as few or as many templates as needed to achieve your design vision.

    Optionally, we can pre-install any plugins that you wish to include in your blog or site so that when you receive your finished product, you can hit the ground running.
