The critical first step in any project is defining what a website is supposed to do. Establishing clear goals and objectives helps determine the shape of the site and informs the metrics we use to gauge success.

Market Analysis & SEO

Search indexing plays a vital role in how customers find your site. By examining the performance of key competitors we can identify the most effective inbound paths for customers and optimize the site accordingly. We support site copy with the structured markup that search engines love, making your content easily discoverable.

Brand Positioning & Copywriting

Brand Positioning & Copywriting

Beware the dreaded TL/DR (“Too Long, Didn't Read”). By The Way Labs will help break up your brand narrative into concise, well-illustrated content blocks that are easy to digest.

Brand Positioning & Copywriting

By The Way Labs conducted a full audit as well as a detailed comparison with competitive brands before diving into our project. They provided recommendations that were deeply thought out and were able to clearly communicate their reasoning in ways that made it easy to understand.

I found it very refreshing that By The Way Labs was able to provide big-picture strategy overlaid with detailed technical solutions, beautiful creative and superior project management.

Responsive Design

More people will view your website on a mobile device than a desktop. Having a website which performs beautifully on all devices is critical to reaching any audience. We build responsive themes with layout and content optimized for all modern browsers.

From outbound email newsletters, to posts on LinkedIn, to shares on Facebook and Twitter, we will ensure that your message is beautiful and consistent across all digital platforms.

Social Branding

The BTW Labs team has more than premier design chops, but a keen sense for navigating real business needs and challenges. For us, BTW Labs have been a secret weapon, not only to dust off our competition, but to send them reeling - to the point of trying in vain to emulate us. I consider the BTW Labs team an extension of our company's creativity, and a conduit for our marketing energy and voice.

Development

Custom Drupal Development

Custom Drupal Development

By now you may have guessed that we like Drupal. This open-source platform is not only incredibly powerful, it’s also robust enough to fit any website need – from a simple marketing site to a powerful online storefront. And it's all open source – which means at the end of the day you completely own your project. From custom theming to 3rd-party integration to custom module development, By The Way Labs can handle Drupal development projects of any size.

The Right Platform for the Job

While our go-to web development platform may be Drupal, it is not always the right fit for every project. We also build sites in Squarespace, Shopify, and HTML5 as the needs of the project dictate.

By The Way Labs went above and beyond to help me stabilize and expand the build of a complex website project. They worked seamlessly with our Agile workflow and provided critical recommendations for standardization and improvement. Urgent issues and questions were addressed quickly in a thorough fashion so I never felt lost. I highly recommend this talented team for your next project.

Campaigns

Content Marketing

Content Marketing

The key to a great content marketing campaign is the same as any other form of marketing; the creation of content that people want to engage with, rather than try to avoid. Our goal is to deliver as much value to your target audience as possible, through the creation of relevant, engaging content that clearly captures the essence of your brand.

Content Marketing

As the Director of Community Relations, I'm consistently looking for creative ways to keep our audience engaged and stimulated. Developing a fully functional and effective e-commerce website is a big chunk of our marketing efforts and the "By The Way Labs" team has continued to go above and beyond our expectations. Not only did they create a beautiful and trendsetting website for us, they continue to bring unique marketing strategies to the table.
