In a nutshell, Internet Marketing is:
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
- Advanced Analytics
- Enhanced Email Marketing
- Social Media Marketing
Now that our team has built you an incredible website, it's time to drive traffic your way from all across the galaxy!
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION (SEO)
There are billions of stars in the universe, how is anyone supposed to find mine?
You'd be right to ask this question. The Internet is growing exponentially every day and becoming increasingly crowded by the competition. That's no accident; businesses are flocking to the Internet because that's where customers are.
Most top-ranking websites, the ones that appear "naturally" at the top of the search engine page just below the paid ads, do not appear there accidentally, they've been carefully designed and optimized to beat the competition to the top of the page by professionals like us.
DaSaR Productions Can Do That For You!
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is the art of getting search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo!, etc.) to notice you and rank you right up at the top of their search results where you can't be missed.
Our expert designers, coders and copywriters eat, drink and breathe SEO, so that your website, mobile platforms, email marketing and social media presence are fully optimized and totally SEO engaged.
Leverage the power of your website..."Hey Google, it's me!"
Optimizing your website is not as daunting as it sounds, it just takes a little know-how and a little elbow grease to get a search engine's attention.
Search engines generally respond to three things: Relevancy, Fresh Content and Money.
You may choose to pay to place an ad at top of a search engine page, or strategically position a "pay-per-click ad" when appropriate and we might recommend that in some cases, but it's not the only way to go.
DaSaR Productions can do the meticulous, behind-the-scenes work that sets your website light-years ahead of the competition from day one.
Effective SEO is our Bread and Butter.
To keep things fresh and to keep search engines interested, we offer monthly marketing and site maintenance packages that leverage a focused online strategy with professional support, timely and compelling updates and active optimization to keep your website ranking among the top results, every time.
The Internet is like the Universe!
...And your website is but a star. DaSaR Productions's team of Internet astronauts are experts at scouring the web for opportunities and occasions to promote your business and drive traffic to your site.
Optimizing your online presence across the web through blogs, industry websites, online communities and social media are a great way to get yourself noticed economically and effectively. We've honed our skills over years of practice and we'll be glad to put them to work for you!
ADVANCED ANALYTICS - QUANTIFIABLE RESULTS! "TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LITTLE STAR..."
Using advanced analytics and detailed data analysis, the team at DaSaR Productions will give your website the extra sparkle it needs to charm its way into the heart of every search engine out there!
We analyze countless data points that tell us exactly what's working and what's not. Our strategies are both organic and responsive. By carefully evaluating the strengths and weakness of your current approach, we are able to adapt our strategy to achieve optimum results that we can measure in real time.
How's that for wishing on a star?
ENHANCED EMAIL MARKETING - THE DaSaR Productions WAY!
Enhanced email marketing remains the foundation of any successful Internet marketing strategy. As evidenced by its considerable role in the last two presidential elections, email marketing is heralded as one of the most direct and effective ways to reach your customers and supporters.
Strategic, inspired and compelling email marketing can drive traffic to your website consistently and economically. Our team of marketing professionals can design and distribute sensational monthly newsletters and well-timed email blasts that deliver appreciable results.
Using advanced analytics and detailed data analysis, we can even document the success of your email marketing campaign and show you exactly how your campaign is working. We'll show you how many people opened or discarded your email, forwarded it, subscribed or unsubscribed from your newsletter, shared information on social media, or went directly to your website and spent some time there.
With that kind of information in hand, we can develop a marketing strategy that will be virtually guaranteed to exceed your expectations. Ask us about managing an active Monthly Email Marketing Strategy customized just for you!

Q: Who will I work with during the project?A: This is a great question to ask and you should ask it of any web design and development firm you are considering. Many firms will farm out work to freelancers or interns. Some firms give little or no access to client's who want to speak directly with their designers or developers. Our clients work directly with our tight knit crew. Who that will be depends on your project needs and what stage of the process you are in during the project.
Q: What platform do you build your websites on?A: We build all our websites and web applications from scratch on the open-source platform PHP and MySQL.
Q: Do you work with other platforms like Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal?A: No. We are exclusively a PHP MySQL firm. In choosing to build with one platform over the past 18 years, we have become experts in PHP MySQL and can create extremely custom solutions for our clients.
Q: Can you help me write content for my website?A: Yes. We can include copy writing and editing in our proposal. We also build your sitemap and help structure the foundation of your website in the planning stages.

Q: Do I own my website?A: YES! Everything that we build will be 100% owned by you. Most of our clients stay with us for the life of the website. Our team is just irresistible that way. But if for any reason you decide you want to take your site to another hosting service and get another company to service the site, we will happily assist you in making the transition as effortlessly and efficiently as possible. The website is yours after all, and we want you to take it wherever you go.
Q: Where is my website hosted?A: All websites that DaSaR Productions created must live in our servers. However, if at any time you wish to move to a new web firm + web host, we will package up your site at no cost to send to the new firm. Though at that time, we will no longer be able to support your site. The company we use for web hosting is a datacenter called www.siteground.com. We offer data center locations on three continents: North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. Thus you can choose the closest one to your visitors to get the best website speed.

Q: How much does web hosting cost with DaSaR Productions?A: We have simplified are packages for hosting down to two options. Non E-Commerce: $800 per year and E-commerce: $800 to $1,000 per year. All of our hosting packages are un-metered meaning that you will never be charged extra for going over a "limit." There are occasionally instances though if a site creates so much traffic that it may need to live on it's own server. We can help facilitate this if needed, but is extremely rare. Our yearly package also includes the cost of upgraded your site and patching with security fixes when needed as well as occasional and small web site content changes and phone support.
Q: Will you provide a full copy/backup of our site if requested?A: Yes and at no cost! You 100% own everything that DaSaR Productions creates for you and if requested we will provide a one-time full backup of your website. If additional backups are needed there is a minimal cost of generally $70 for 30 minutes of labor.
Q: Is my hosting fee refundable?A: Unfortunately we do not offer refunds on our web hosting accounts.
