There’s more to a web presence than just being present. With the right strategy, development, and communications in place, any business can find success.
Websites should be a small business tool, not another complexity to overcome. Think of us as your neighborhood resource, whether you’re just down the street or across the globe. Looking for ecommerce expertise? A sleek brochure website? Ghostwriters for your corporate blog? Reliable hosting and support? Whatever your needs, responsive, easy-to-talk-to web professionals can be hard to find. Let us be yours.
Midlothian Web Solutions is a proud member of:
Small business website solutions and enterprise level applications can be hard to wrap your head around. When you need a tech industry adviser, Midlo Web is here to help.
We provide not only individualized website design and development but also personalized training and support for the systems we build. We aren’t overseas. We’re right around the corner.
Web content shapes the understanding of your business. These days, your digital first impression is as important as any other. Your voice and your authority matter. We’re ready to get started when you are.
Maybe you know your web presence could be stronger, but you don’t know where to start. Maybe your systems are outdated, and you’re unfamiliar with updated solutions. Maybe you have a goal but no idea how to get there. This is where we come in.
There’s a lot for a business to consider in this digital age. Website strategy, content strategy, social media strategy, and more seem to by changing by the week. Falling behind can be detrimental to your business, but you don’t have to keep up. That’s what we’re here for.
Whether it is a content management system, corporate intranet, ecommerce platform, or any other web solution, we provide not only personalized development but also personalized training and support for the PHP platform-based systems we custom-build for you.
Customized, feature rich, open-source ecommerce solutions like Magento create new possibilities for B2B and B2C retailers. Integrating third-party systems such as inventory management, invoicing, and shipping can allow you to focus your time and energy elsewhere.
When the copy is done well, your business becomes a trusted source; your website picks up traffic; and new leads are generated. When it’s done poorly, even the most polished company comes across as amateurish. Let our team take projects off of your already loaded plate.
Having an effective web-presence means customers need to be able to easily find your business online. There’s power in high search engine result page (SERP) ranking. Let us take you there. URL structure, page titles, site mapping, and keyword portfolio integration are just a few of the SEO techniques we specialize in.
WordPress, Drupal, and similar frameworks allow for easy-to-manage, engaging online experiences from blogs to advanced Internet applications. Utilizing the PHP language, we build content management systems that put control in your hands with a straightforward authoring environment.
There’s a difference in template-based websites and websites designed by visual professionals. Our award-winning graphic designers can construct your website’s theme, complementary infographics, and so much more. Websites can look outdated in only a few year’s time. Make sure yours is as fresh as the rest of your business.
Having a vigilant and reliable host for your website can be a huge asset as a company navigates the ever-changing internet waters. From 24-hour turnaround on security patches to weekly backups, we’ve got you covered. Need business email addresses or security certificates (SSL) too? Not a problem. We can take care of you.
Your web presence is only as strong as the content you craft and the communications you send on a daily basis. Precise, concise language matters in this age of limited attention spans. That’s why we offer training sessions and workshops for groups or individuals. When we say we’re a full service web solutions company, we mean it.
Content Specialist & Co-founder
With a Bachelor of Arts from the College of William and Mary and a Master of Liberal Arts from the University of Richmond, Kris Spisak began her career as a college writing instructor. However, after six years in the classroom, she decided to shift her work toward professional writing and editing, first founding K. S. Writing, a company with a mission to bolster the literary arts community by connecting professional creative writers with businesses in need of their communication skills, and later partnering with Frank Petroski to found Midlothian Web. Kris has always had a fascination with the ways one can capture an audience with language—from knowing the rules of grammar to finding the right voice to applying the right web strategies for search engine optimization (SEO). The place where right brain and left brain meet is her favorite place to work.
Frank is a Zend PHP Certified Engineer who received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Philadelphia University in 1999. Joining the Internet industry in the late ‘90s, Frank experienced the monumental rise of the dot-com era and the historic burst of the dot-com bubble first-hand. Dedication, agility, determination, and initiative defined the successes of that era, and these traits were the foundation for Frank’s launching of Petrofy, a web development company focused on delivering a cutting-edge Internet presence to its clients. Frank believes in the collaborative and participatory culture of the worldwide development community and has embraced Open Source Initiative—particularly the PHP platform. He not only enjoys developing and implementing innovative applications utilizing the latest Internet-based technologies, he also enjoys tackling new challenges with a vast array of tools in his belt.
First at Petrofy and now at Midlothian Web Solutions, he has remained dedicated to responsiveness, integrity, and becoming a true partner in every client’s success. When he isn’t in front of his computer, he can often be found playing volleyball, bowling, cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles/Flyers/Phillies, or spending time with his family.
In graduate school, Brenda Storm once built her own computer because the instrumentation she was using could not be handled by anything commercially available at the time. This speaks to two important aspects of Brenda’s personality: she is persistent in her desire to get a job done right, and she’s not afraid to tackle a challenge. Since the time she took up that soldering iron, Brenda has been a chemist for Hercules, a direct sales trainer, and a Pampered Chef director, and she comes to Midlothian Web Solutions with a passion for details and for delivering the level of customer service that everyone deserves and expects. She is a graduate of LaSalle University and the University of Virginia.
