Onward websites are powerful machines forged from the latest content management technologies and fashioned to ignite business growth. We craft each website with passion and precision. Ready to get started? Let's build something great together.
We fashion our websites on the WordPress content management system (CMS). Although there are certainly many custom elements that will be created for your WordPress experience, the fact that the structure isn’t built from a brand new CMS helps keep costs lower. It's also open-source, meaning that when everything is said and done, you'll own your site, not us.
Premium Managed Hosting
Our third-party premium managed hosting is designed specifically for Wordpress giving you 24/7 chat and phone access to a Wordpress-specialized support staff, as well as automatic daily backups, proactive malware scans and powerful security firewalls.
No need to worry about logging into a separate service. We'll build analytics right into your site! Through WordPress Jetpack, which will be installed on your website, you will be able to view the number of visitors to your site each day, week, quarter or year. You’ll also be able to see which sites are referring traffic and which links and pages people are clicking when they visit.
We craft SEO (Search Engine Optimization)-friendly websites, which ensures your website is more visible to internet users who use search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo. We’ll also include an SEO WordPress plug-in, which will help ensure that when you add new content to the website in the future it is optimized for search engines.
Website speed matters. In fact, according to multiple studies, every second counts. Every second longer your website takes to load represents more potential customers leaving your site. Speed even has an impact on SEO. Our included hosting solution and efficient coding ensure blazing fast speeds that boost your SEO ranking while enhancing your website's user experience.
Ready to take the wheel?
It's midnight and you just noticed a glaring error on your website. It needs to be changed right now but only your web guy can do that, and guess what? He's fast asleep and won't be available until the morning. If only you could just make the change yourself! But you don't have access to the website plus you don't know code anyway. With an Onward website, you'll have full access to make basic content edits without ever having to take web development classes. We'll personalize an easy-to-use interface that allows you to make as many changes as you want, at any time.
Congratulations, you've made a name for yourself and now all manner of hackers, spammers and other riff raff are out to get you. Fortunately, your Onward website is powered by a managed, WordPress-specific host that boasts some of the best security measures around. Your website will enjoy iron-clad protection in the form of multiple powerful firewalls between your website data and those who would compromise it, proactive detection and elimination of malware through a regular scan, and automated daily backups with one-click restore in the event a dedicated hacker actually makes it through.
"Nate and his entire team were a dream to work with. Not only did they build a beautiful website that was representative of our organization, they went to painstaking lengths to ensure that it was customized on the back end and manageable for our staff after hand off. Additionally, our marketing campaign was significantly more successful thanks to their insight and guidance. I cannot speak highly enough of Onward and would recommend them to anyone for any and all website and marketing needs."
Florida State University Foundation
"I cannot speak highly enough about Nate's knowledge and work on websites. From creating an attractive and modern design to providing a smart and well-thought out strategy to address target audiences, Nate can do it all. He helped create a dynamic website for a health alliance I spearheaded and was accessible and responsive throughout the entire process. He helped my team identify key audiences and tasks for the site and made difficult concepts (like SEO and call-to-action placement) easy to understand to even a lay person."

"If you're blessed with the opportunity to work with John, take it. John is a fantastically skilled designer and developer - moreover, his unmatched work ethic and personality shine through all that he says and does. His creativity, attention to detail, diligence and quality of work are of a level difficult to come by. I'd wholeheartedly recommend John to anyone."

COO, The Auto Club Group
"I worked with Nate in my role on the Visit Florida Board of Directors. He assisted our committee with database and website needs to improve the value we provided to our partners as well as visitors. He was insightful, energetic and always delivered a great product at the end of the day."
CMO, Co-Founder, Flyreel
"John Newman... where do I even begin? A few words come to mind when I think of John Newman... reverent, humble, amazingly creative, highly skilled-- just one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with. John's work is simply magic, and his ability to come up with great solutions is over the top. John is a rare find. I can't say enough great things about John Newman. It's impossible to not love this man and his work."
American Lung Association
"Nate worked on a website redesign project for me while I was the project leader for a statewide alliance. Nate sat with us through several meetings to make sure he understood exactly what the alliance needed to capture our target audience through this new website. The end result was a visually appealing, user friendly (on both ends) wealth of information for alliance members and potential members. I would recommend Nate Long for any of your website needs."
Director of Marketing and Product Development at IRBsearch
"John Newman is the original triple threat - he's an incredible designer, developer, and writer. After working with him on numerous branding expeditions, I found his output to be fresh, polished, and pixel perfect. His ability to learn, grasp, and implement new technologies is unparalleled."
Customer Success Engineer at Chef (formerly Opscode)
"John's thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and precise execution of tasks, large or small, make him invaluable to the organization. He is a conscientious web developer and an unparalleled graphic designer."
Client Services Engineer at Basho Technologies, Inc
"An aggressive self-learner, John was continually pushing his skills envelope in pursuit of creating the best user experience possible. No challenge was too formidable for Newman to undertake. He went from graphic designer to front-end developer in no time but always maintained his aesthetic sensibilities. John was also an invaluable player in several cross-functional development teams where he always contributed 100% and encouraged the other participants to do the same. I've never heard a cross word spoken by or about John Newman and I look forward to working with him again when the opportunity presents itself."
