Live chat has been around for years, but it’s something Omaha business owners rarely Live-Chat-Newsletter-Graphicconsider implementing into their website. Why? It’s likely they think there’s a high cost associated with set up, and/or they think it’ll take too many resources to manage. And while this may have been the case many years ago, website live chat is easier than ever to add to your website.

Our Omaha web design firm has used LiveChat for years and it’s proven to increase efficiency and assist in making an initial quick connection with sale prospects. The nature of our business requires us to be in front of and away from our computers – so while we’re gone LiveChat delivers a message directly to our email when users leave a message. (You’d be surprised how many users would rather leave a quick message on LiveChat rather than fill out a contact form).

JM was recently added to LiveChat’s list of industry experts. LiveChat is customizable, provides reports and analytics, integrates easily with WordPress and is secure. We believe this can help increase our customer’s prospects, revenue and efficiency – as we’ve seen it work for us – and for only $299 we are offering LiveChat integration on your website. All you need to do is signup for LiveChat, provide JM with the login details, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Interested in setting up LiveChat on your website? Call 402.292.7500 ext 102.

Our Omaha web design and development team builds most websites on a WordPress platform. And while WordPress is widely known for its usability, ease for developers and security – there are security risks associated with websites, no matter the platform. For this reason, JM has recently started offering security packages for our WordPress customers.

Our security packages include plugin and WordPress core system upgrades whenever available, additional monitoring for suspicious activity and, should a hacker or virus enter your site, free cleanup from hackers and viruses. But we often hear, “I don’t think I need to be protected from this since we don’t store any sensitive information on our website.” This makes no difference to a hacker.

A recent article by Wordfence (a WordPress security plugin which JM uses to help protect our WordPress websites), indicates that in a recent survey over 60% of respondents didn’t know how attackers compromised their website. For those who did figure out how the attackers entered their website, plugins were the biggest vulnerability. As part of our security package we update plugins when available because of the associated security risks. WordPress core and plugin updates are often available because of new security patches that will help protect your website.

Our Omaha web hosting team has seen an increase in security threats over just the last several months. JM’s security package will not only prevent against vulnerabilities to your website for a small monthly fee, but will also save you many hundreds of dollars in website recovery if your website is hacked or infected. Call us at 402.292.7500 ext 102 for more information.

2016

Happy New Year from the JM Web Designs team! Our Omaha web design and development team is excited for the new challenges and successes 2016 will bring, after a ground breaking year of growth.

From 2014 to 2015 we experienced 18.5% growth. Our small and local team provided excellent service and products to Omaha businesses in the form of custom web design, prebuilt responsive design templates, internet marketing, search engine optimization (SEO) services, web hosting and more, gaining many new customers along the way.

JM provides secure web hosting services to hundreds of businesses all over the country; and among growth we experienced in all our services, web hosting saw a significant increase in 2015 – gaining over 150 customers. Our team also implemented many new hosting technologies in 2015, decreasing tech issues and increasing up-time.

JM has provided web hosting, web design and web development consistently for 17 years. But over the last few, our team has expanded to providing many new services – including SEO and Internet marketing. This year, we’ve expanded even more to meet our customers’ needs, adding security packages for web hosting and WordPress customers, Google remarketing services and Google+ optimization.

Looking toward 2016 we hope to continue expanding our services and team to meet the needs of Omaha businesses. Perhaps our biggest undertaking for 2016 will be a custom Customer Relations Management (CRM) system. This new CRM will increase our internal efficiency and expand the communication capabilities we have with our customers.

2016 is paved to be great for JM, and we wish the same for all our customers. Cheers to you, and much success the coming year!
