Who are you?

I am a Business Owner

The Logic Box loves entrepreneurs and small business owners. We understand that the primary purpose of a website is not to look good but to attract new leads and customers.

In Charge of Marketing

We love marketing! Seriously. Our sites are not designed to be just another pretty face but to deliver new leads and customers to our clients. Check out our Design Approach to learn more.

Website Administrator

What are you looking for?

Do you have a current website that needs to be updated? That’s great because we specialize in website redesign.

Mobile responsive website

Over 78% of all website traffic comes from mobile devices and that number is only growing. All of the sites we design and develop are fully mobile responsive and are designed to adapt for the iPhone, iPad and other Mobile Devices.

A beautiful design

We pride ourselves in designing beautiful and interesting websites. Check out our portfolio to view our work and judge for yourself.

Someone I can trust

Our reputation is our most valuable asset. We believe trust is something you must earn. Give us a try and we promise not to let you down.

A long term partnership

We love our customers and have enjoyed long term relationships with clients from as far back as when we started business. If you’re looking for a long term partnership with a firm that can take ownership of your website needs, we are your team.

A blog website

Most of our sites come with a custom blog page. With that being said, if you’re a solo blogger who is long on blog posts but short on budget, a fully custom website may not be the fit for your needs. However our TLBpages Blogging platform is exactly what you need and you can be up and running in 7 days. 

I need a site just like Yelp and Facebook but I need you to sign an NDA before I can tell you more

Sounds like what you need is a ‘Web Application’ not a website. A website is mostly about design and static content. Websites such as Facebook and Yelp are really pieces of software that look like websites. These types of sites are typically far more costly than a regular websites, but you're in luck because we've built many high profile web applications driven by communities and APIs. We will need a far more in depth consulation to determine exactly what you need, and make sure you have a decent budget in place. 

When do you need it by?

No idea

That’s okay. We can help clarify the scope of the project, along with your goals to give you a realistic timeline for the project

1-3 months

Great! That’s a pretty reasonable time frame. We’re happy to work with you with that timeline.

Yesterday!!!

Whoa! Hold it there partner. Our experience has been that if you’re in too much of a rush you run the risk of doing more harm than good. Our minimum time for turning around projects is 2 weeks, with most projects taking 1-2 months. Let's go over your requirements first, typically we found clients are ambitious with what they want which is mostly not what they need.

I have a website but...

I hate my website! It’s ugly

That’s okay. In fact that’s great, because we can definitely help with that. If you hate your existing site or it's not working on mobile devices we'll take a look and suggest the best course of action, learn more here

I can’t update my website without paying a developer

That's never fun. We can update your website, however it may actually cost more to do it. We develop sites that are super easy to update and edit on your own without having to know any code. Plus we’ll provide you with detailed video tutorials on how to update and edit the site on your own. Of course if you don't want to, we have maintenace plans as well. 

My website looks dated and old

If your site is over 5 years old then it probably looks old. What's worst it may not work on the latest devices. That’s okay, we can definitely help with that. We use the most modern website design best practices to ensure your site will be up to date with the latest and greatest in design trends. Learn more here.

My website isn’t mobile responsive

Yikes! That’s not good. Over 20% of all website traffic comes from mobile devices. All the sites we develop are fully mobile responsive and adapt for the iPhone, the iPad and all other Mobile Devices.

No one comes to my website ;-(

Why you shouldn't hire us

You’re looking for a cheap site

If your primary concern is to spend as little as possible on your website, branding or graphic design, then we’re probably not the right fit. We work with big brands and business owners who know their time is valuable and they have a need to automate their websites and increase their bottom line with proven marketing methods and online tools. Remember, you get as much out of business and your investment as you put in. 

Our TLBpages CMS websites (which runs this website) do everything and more if configured correctly. Unlike wordpress, there are no third party plugins and widgets that can screw your websites up. Our packages begin as little as $50 per month with a $500 configuration fee. You can install a Wix website, a blogger website or many other cookie cutter websites. If however you wish to run a business and need a website that will help you monetize your brand and your products, get in touch with The Logic Box.

Treat your business like a hobby and it will pay you like a hobby. Treat it like a business and you'll get paid like a business.
