website design and managed hosting

squarespace | wordpress



54 Design Group, LLC, designs websites in WordPress or Squarespace that align with your company goals and objectives. Those of us who have been in the industry for a number of years (we have over 15 years experience), want you to have a successful website that will be a benefit to your business or organization, attractive, manageable and secure. We appreciate you have a wide range of designers to decide from and each client has their specific requirements.

Our Midwest location in Mexico centrally located between St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri, enables us to provide high quality websites at a competitive rate. When you consider most website designers use the same WordPress or Squarespace platform and many of the same hosting agencies, spending more for services you don’t require isn’t cost effective. High overhead has to be covered somehow.

Perhaps your decision on a designer is based on locale, similar websites to your business, additional services, etc. Whatever is driving your final choice, ensure your website designer is experienced, well qualified and established. We’ve been in business since 2003, originally in Arizona and now in Missouri. We strive to deliver the best product we can, and communicate clearly with our clients.

let’s get started

You have a business to run or an organization to oversee, let’s schedule a brief personal (within mid-Missouri), or phone meeting during which we can discuss your website project and how to move forward. There is no hard sell, you want to know how we work and we want to know what’s important to you.

Prior to our meeting you will be asked to provide some basic information about your business or organization, your competitors, design preferences, etc. Together we will look at what you like or don’t like about your current website, features you would like to have or may add later on, comfort level in making edits, and other basics. By getting an idea of where you are and where you want to be, we can best advise you on the best course of action.

Afterward you will be provided a budget proposal and an anticipated timeline for completion. If all looks agreeable you’ll be provided with a design concept to consider, formal proposal and deposit request to begin your project.
