Our experienced and creative staff, based in Palestine, Texas, build functional websites that help businesses grow.
Everything we do is custom – therefore, what your brother-in-law got may not be what you need and will therefore be priced accordingly. You’re paying for years of experience with East Texas Programming.
While we prefer to work on our own stuff, we also redesign and update sites created by someone else.
If we cannot do what you request, we will be honest with you and tell you why.
Each website we develop is unique and designed specially for you — we don’t use templates! More design options are available to you because we only do custom web design. If you have a specific design in mind, we can take it from paper to online reality!
We use the most popular, most widely used, and fastest growing content management system (CMS) available today for web development — WordPress. Originating in 2003, WordPress currently powers more than 43% of all websites on the Internet, including many of the world’s top websites.
In today’s world, it has become practically essential that your website has the ability to be viewed on all screen sizes and by all screen resolutions. We specialize in responsiveness and understand how important it is that your website looks and performs perfectly across all devices — mobile and tablet as well as desktop and laptop.
Sell your products online with an e-Commerce site and offer your customers the ability to pay through various payment gateways, such as PayPal, Stripe, Square, Braintree, and more. Alternatively, if you are already using a third-party shopping cart, we can connect it to your site.
Protect your website by opting for our Monthly Maintenance Plan. We keep your theme, plugins, WordPress version, and PHP language version up-to-date which helps protect your website from crashes. We monitor your site on GSC and GA and include a summary with your monthly report. We also do scheduled backups of your website to protect you in the event of a crash.
We connect your site to Google Search Console (GSC) to confirm that Google can find and crawl your site. If you have opted for our Monthly Maintenance Plan, we address any and all indexing problems that may occur on your site and monitor your website’s traffic. A summary of your site’s traffic is included in your Monthly Maintenance Report.
Also available with the Monthly Maintenance Plan, we connect your site to Google Analytics (GA) to “analyze” your site’s traffic. We monitor your site to determine where your site’s traffic is coming from, direct, organic searches, social media, or other websites. We are also able to determine your users’ behavior while on your site, such as the most frequently viewed pages and how long visitors stay on your site.
Social media is a big deal! We can link your website to your social network profiles, such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, etc. We can also embed much of your social media within your site, making your social “feed” visible to your website’s visitors.
We are a full-service company offering to host on our own servers built for speed, reliability, and security. We have your applications and websites covered including WordPress. If you have a site already built and want to move to our servers – come on over!
If your site is hosted with East Texas Programming, your email is free up to 10 users. Additional users can be added in blocks of five for a small fee. If you just want a business email address and no website – no problem. We can accommodate you. Our email includes the ability to upload documents in a secure password-protected area that has timers. Ask us how this works!
We register domain names for our customers and pricing is very competitive. We can quickly check to see if the name you desire is available. There are now almost 300 name extensions available! Artists and musicians might like the .me extension! If you have a store, you may like the .store extension. A CPA would like .pro.
Every website we develop includes basic search engine optimization (SEO) intended to give your site visibility on search engines (Google, Bing, etc.) As time goes on, you may find it beneficial to purchase additional SEO work to give your website an opportunity to increase it’s position in search engine page ranking results.
Tell us the basic design of the logo you have in mind, or better yet, draw it out, and we can reproduce it! With this service, you have options to receive your logo across various file formats, i.e. pdf, svg, eps, png, and jpeg, to satisfy your marketing needs online and as well as in print.
The eLearning industry is exploding! Everything is moving online. College courses – no problem. We can do that! Are you a professional who wants to teach your audience how to make something? We can do a class for that! We do SCORM compliance classes with certification and we can do a simple video that explains YOUR business to put on your website!
We work with your Learning Management System (LMS). And if you don’t have one we can recommend one as well as sell you your own custom LMS (no shared database with the rest of the world).
We have 30 years of experience with Microsoft products. Microsoft Word and Excel as well as Publisher and PowerPoint. We’ve created several Access standalone databases being used in small businesses to handle everything from accounting to in-house compliance standards.
Do you have a special online database need that you want for your employees to log into to perform a special task? Whatever you can come up with – we can create!
We are proficient in SQL Server databases. When you have an application that requires that your database move online, it needs to be more than MS Access which isn’t designed for Internet applications. We also work with MySQL. Whatever your needs are, we can accommodate!
We can create a web service to make things happen in your application based on the criteria you request.
We also do database conversion. Convert extracted databases from one accounting system to another. Over 30 years experience.
In today’s marketplace, every business needs a website.
Your customers expect it!
Whether you are a brand new business or an experienced business wanting to upgrade, we can help you make an impression on the web.
