Here at Level 9, everyone has a sales mentality. We make sure every technical and creative decision we make can help you make a sale.
Since Level 9 first opened doors, we’ve studied many web design companies crash and burn so that we can learn from their mistakes. We’ve learned that most of these companies excelled in creative and technical skills, but failed nevertheless due to their lack of business skills. They were building websites with great design and technology, but it just wasn’t profitable to their clients’ business.
We believe that sales is the backbone of every business and we have employed one very important philosophy that will set us apart from our competitors. We think of every website we build as a sales tool and its purpose is to sell our clients’ products and services.
I have been in Graphic Design for over 12 years and I have gained an excellent knowledge in all areas of design, computers and the internet. I am very passionate about the industry I am involved with and am proud to have achieved the accomplishments during my career.
