Digital Excellence: Guide to Kansas City Website Design

Premier Website Design in Kansas City
Welcome to the heartland of digital innovation! Critchfield Consulting, in Liberty, Missouri, is excited to provide this article and guide for Kansas City business owners on how to effectively design a spectacular business website. 

A bunch goes into doing this right, so we felt it appropriate to provide a guide, not necessarily a do-it-yourself tutorial (who has time for that?) but to provide, at the very least, a checklist for what's important to not overlook.   

As a digital marketing and consulting agency representing our world champion city, our aim is to serve the entire Kansas City Metropolitan region, extending our expertise to our northern neighborhood Missouri suburbs like Parkville, Gladstone, Platte City, and Independence, as well as our southern city friends in Lee's Summit, Blue Springs, Overland Park, Olathe, Lenexa, and Prairie Village.

As we said, a lot can go into building a productive company website and it's certainly not just its design that matters.  There's a big difference between a functioning website and a pretty website.  For the sake of this guide, why don't we explore how to do both together?     


  • ____  Website Security: Does your website have a security certificate?  
  • ____  Directory Listings: How well is your business contact information spread out online? 
  • ____  Google My Business (GMB): How effective is and has your GMB page been optimized? 
  • ____  Online Reviews: Reviews play an important part for website success, SEO, and credibility. 
  • ____  Backlinking: Do you have authoritative 3rd party websites that link to your website? 
  • ____  Social Media: Which social platforms are we integrating into our website marketing?  
  • ____  Website Speed: Is your website programmed to be quick on mobile and desktop devices? 
  • ____  Page Development: Do all pages have ALT Text, Meta Descriptions, Page Titles and Headers? 
  • ____  Backend Programming: How effective is your website communicating with search engines? 
  • ____  Google Analytics: Gaining Google Analytics access provides valuable website data you want.

  • ____  Company Branding: Primary and secondary colors, logo, theme, and slogans help design?
  • ____  Website Navigation: What pages do we need and what pages do our competitors not have?  
  • ____  Website Design: What is it we want our design to show, say, and do? Custom or Template? 
  • ____  Home Page Elements: Consider a welcome video, large imagery, team introduction & strategy?
  • ____  Mobile First Design: Are you working with a team that focuses on mobile design? 
  • ____  Assets: What photos, reviews, video, and company assets do you have to work with already?
  • ____  Calls to Action: Where do we want people to go and what do we want them to do on our site? 
  • ____  Conversion Elements: Do you have live chat and internal page mini contact forms for leads? 
  • ____  Content Strategy: Is your content good and meet the requirements search engines need?
  • ____  Search Engine Optimization (SEO): How well are you optimized to create organic results?  
  • ____  Additional Items: Pay attention to not overdo it on fonts, colors, and spacing.
