How We Started
Granite Web was started in 2000, right before the DOTCOM crash affecting many large online operations, during which many of them shut down their operations. We started as a web design shop, performing general "webmaster" duties for clients including website design, basic SEO and web hosting. Over time, we have added many skills and services to fill the needs of our growing list of clients.
A Family Affair
We have been in business and have been family owned/operated for over 18 years.
Brothers John and Joe, the 2 principals of our company, have over 40 years combined experience in online marketing, web development, web hosting and networking. Our strong dedication to our families and business has helped our business to continue to grow and flourish.
It's all about Relationships
Relationships are everything to us. We rely solely on our reputation and word-of-mouth advertising for 100% of our new and repeat business. We have never paid for online advertising since we've been doing business. Our policy here is to treat every client with respect, professionalism and kindness. We commonly reference the saying "put yourself in their shoes" when dealing with just about any situation involving clients. We treat our clients like we would want to be treated ourselves and pride ourselves on providing our customers a level of attention that bigger firms typically fail to provide. Our clients deal with us on a first name basis.
Reliability and Continuity
We get calls all the time from clients who started a project with someone and then can no longer get in touch with them. This is often the result of clients dealing with a "person" and not a business. Many of them are freelancers in between jobs, often with specialized skill sets in certain areas. Sometimes they will get a call with full-time employment and become unavailable. Other times, they might get in over their heads with the skills required for the project and realize that there are parts of the project that they cannot handle. There's a lot of time, effort and planning that goes into web projects. We have the years of experience in a wide range of projects to know how to properly plan, quote and execute projects. We know how to properly manage finances year after year and maintain business cash flow to continue business operations through the good times and times of economic downturn. Our experience and smart business practices have kept our business strong, stable and here to serve our clients over the many years in business.
Here To Serve
We love what we do and are experts in our trade. We are here to serve any or all of your needs, big or small. We have serviced large corporate clients like Reuters and 1800flowers and have worked in a subcontractor role on projects for Cardinal Stritch University, Inttra, Tauck World Discovery, Insight Vacations and Bic Corporation. We've also worked with mom-and-pop businesses just starting out online and everything in-between. We look forward to discussing your next web project with you!
