Pittsburgh Website Design Company


My name is Mary Ecsedy, and I am the Managing Partner and principal website business consultant of our company. Since 2003 I have been building and marketing websites with my husband and business partner, Don Ecsedy, working with teams of website programmers and other professionals on a per-project basis.

The World Wide Web is still basically a wild frontier, and everyone trying to do business here faces a high degree of risk via their websites. That's why our company logo for Circuit Riders, LLC is a group of cowboys carrying shotguns (from a photograph of my great-grandfather and his brothers).

Our streamlined, proprietary process is based on over 14 years of real-world business experience, where success is measured in dollars and failure is not an option.

  1. Business Requirements - The first step is business discovery, to understand your business requirements, industry, competitive challenges, short- and long-term goals.
  2. Keywords Research & Intelligence - Once we understand your business, we do keywords-based business intelligence. We do online searches to learn more about your industry, your competitors, and your customers, from the perspective of Google and other search engines. If you have an existing website, we will research your current page ranking in Google searches.
  3. Roadmapping - The results of our keywords research are used for project planning and roadmapping.
  4. SEO Development - Now we can begin actual website development, starting with writing the SEO elements for each page. Why start with the SEO? Because we build the keywords into the foundations of the site.
  5. Create the Contents - The written contents are another form of Search Engine Optimization. The key to success is using the right words in the appropriate manner for each page on your site.
  6. Design - Graphic design, page layout, and illustrations are all created in order to highlight and support the contents, and to encourage website visitors to become prospects or new customers. (NOTE: This is where most website projects begin - with the design - which is why so many of them fail.)
  7. Website Development - This is the step where the website is actually built; all the pieces - the SEO, Contents, and Design - are all brought together to build the pages, with links and navigation between them.
  8. Launch - Many people see the launch of their new or updated website as the completion of the project. In our process, launching a website into going live on the Web is just the beginning. All the work that goes into the planning and development steps is to allow you to reach the point where you can begin to drive the site for business growth and competitive advantage. What happens next? Do people visit the site? Do they call or buy? Do they leave? Are they looking for what you offer or something else? Is there a mismatch in the keywords and the search phrases used by visitors?
  9. Success! - We call our process The Cycle of Success, because reaching the last step becomes the first step of the next cycle. Every project is different. But this process will allow you to hone your website as a business tool to the point where it will allow you to generate new business at will.
