Web Design & Development


The foundation of any online presence is the Website and how easily navigational the web design is for users and potential customers. The website is your "hub," so to speak, and chances are the web design will be your first opportunity to make an impression on potential customers. Six or seven years ago, a brochure-style website (digital version of your printed materials) was enough if you wanted a web presence, but today, your website needs to do more than inform.

Robert Sharp & Associates is a website company providing everything from design, development, hosting, and maintenance of websites. We serve clients who host with us as well as those who host on a variety of platforms.

Your website needs to help you build a relationship with your customers. It needs to be mobile friendly to reach customers searching on their mobile devices. Your website may be how people first find out about you, and it serves as your online "brick and mortar" - the place people first go before visiting you in person. Does your site make a great first impression? Is your web design one that is easy for guests to navigate?

Our team of website developers has developed sites as simple as one page, to full content management systems and everything in between. Give us a call to discuss your next web design project.

Things to consider about your current web design:

  • Does your site provide a way to interact with your customers?
  • Is it stuck in the “brochure” format of the past?
  • Is it an accurate reflection of your business today?
  • Is it optimized for maximum ranking amongst search engines?
  • Is it optimized for mobile?

With these questions in mind, give our team of website developers, based in Rapid City, South Dakota, a call and ask how we can make you a website with an easy to navigate web design, a platform that is easy to edit, a site that is mobile-friendly, and an online presence that speaks to your potential customers and invites them to explore more. We are a team of website developers with years of experience and can make a customizable website to fit your every need.

While we offer our own Content Management System (PageFramer), we're also experts in WordPress.  WordPress is one of the most popular and easy-to-use content management systems available.  We can easily design, modify, or repair websites that use WordPress as a content management system.  Find out how the experts at Robert Sharp and Associates, located in Rapid City, South Dakota can help you with your WordPress needs.
