We are local to Tampa and employ an in-house graphic designer to create custom logos and graphics for your business.

WordPress now powers 30% of websites and is the perfect economic solution to website design without compromising user experience and visual appeal. We can customize every aspect of your WordPress website so it meets your business needs and fits your brand’s image. WordPress offers thousands of useful plugins that we are experienced in implementing, like WooCommerce, to turn your WordPress website into an E-commerce powerhouse and Yoast SEO to maximize traffic to your website. We can create a custom package tailored to your business needs, or we offer a basic Pluto WordPress Package that includes everything needed for a successful WordPress website, including deployment, maintenance, social media integration, contact forms, a custom logo created by our in-house graphic designer, and more. All websites are fast-loading, responsive across all devices, and optimized for SEO with keyword-rich content, plugins, XML sitemaps, and Google Analytics built in.
We want to make web design as simple as possible for our clients, which is why we are happy to offer in-house custom logo and graphic design for your website or promotional materials. When designing websites, our graphic designer collaborates with us to create a custom logo that fits your brand’s image and website design and will gladly consult with you to ensure your vision is reflected in the final design. We always offer logo and graphic design revisions, and are happy to spruce up old logos or convert them to vector images so that no matter how large or small your logo is, all of its lines, curves, and points remain crisp and smooth.
Business cards are often your first impression when networking or prospecting new business. Our in-house graphic designer will work with you to ensure the design process is smooth and your business card reflects your logo, brand image, or vision, or consult with you to develop a new, cutting-edge design.
Having a great website that draws customers to your business is only half the battle. The other half is ensuring that when customers search for keywords related to your business, your website shows up at the top of search engine results. SEO is not simply a click of a button or plugin you implement and walk away from. It’s a multifaceted strategy that involves a number of ethical, white-hat SEO techniques we implement over time. For this reason, we have created a page dedicated to explaining our process and some of the tools we use like keyword and competitor research, Google Analytics, backlinks and citations, and developing keyword-rich content, in detail, which can be found here.
Application Programming Interfaces or APIs let developers integrate features provided by other services or companies into your website. An example of API integration is Google Maps location data, Amazon ‘Buy Now’ buttons, on-website Twitter posting, and Weather Underground real-time temperature and forecasting data. The examples are endless, and almost every major website uses some type of API to power their website. Our team of in-house developers is skilled at API integration and has worked with numerous company APIs to integrate them seamlessly into websites. APIs really bring websites alive by increasing user engagement and ultimately traffic to your website, so we are excited to always offer custom API integration services to our clients.
Handling deployment and hosting in-house with AWS (which is what Dow Jones, SAP, and Netflix use) lets us make the entire web design process, from design to deployment and beyond, simple, fast, and efficient for our clients. Deployment and hosting through us is not required, but we do offer it, since this can be one of the most complex and important aspects related to how your website performs. We chose AWS because they offer scalable, enterprise level hosting solutions along with top-notch security at a very low cost. They offer unparalleled customer support, and their services require no commitment, so as soon as you stop a server, you won’t be billed starting from the very next hour. We are extremely skilled at working with AWS and consider it a forte of ours. We can create and implement a custom firewall for added security if needed, cloud services, and more. AWS servers hosting VirtualZero developed websites are located at AWS data servers on the East Coast and have an uptime of greater than 99.99%, which is the best in the business.
Storing data is an essential function for many websites. The kind of data gathered, processed, or saved varies wildly between websites as does the methods and scheme needed. For websites requiring data preservation, many of the one size fits all web solutions simply will not work. We offer custom database design so that the databases used in your website will be optimized for simple, customizable queries. From saving basic information about website visitors to complete asset management solutions, we will design and integrate the perfect database solution so that your website works for you. Some of the database systems we have designed in the past include a ticketing management system and complex asset tracking system for Hillsborough Community College’s main campus. The ticketing management and asset tracking system are used by HCC’s Computer Science Department.
