A word from our clients
Scott has shown a real personal interest and deep professional insights into my career goals. He has helped me to devise ways to communicate with my various audiences and has encouraged me to think outside the box in my digital efforts. I credit the professional, prompt, and deeply engaged work of Altera Web with supporting and promoting the incredible professional success I have enjoyed over the last decade. I cannot stress highly enough how much I value Altera Web!
Professor and ex-host of MSNBC’s “Melissa Harris-Perry”
I LOVED working with Scott and his team at Altera Web. In addition to creating my personal site, Altera Web also built my Bakery site AND my Life Lived Pure site. My technical ability is minimum to say the very least. All of my sites are not only easy for me to use but they are easy for the customer to navigate and more importantly…purchase. Scott is always a phone call away to answer any questions. I would use Altera Web again and again. Just wonderful.
Actress and Best Selling Author
As an online influencer and YouTube Vlogger, I knew I had to have a digital presence and site that was both experiential and engaging. Scott not only exceeded my expectations in that regard but he also made sure that my site had the greatest impact based on what my audience wants. His blend of strategy and insight was a huge benefit as we created major impact moments that today have grown my channel into YouTube’s #1 James Bond brand presence.
The Bond Experience
Altera Web has been my go-to company for a decade, helping integrate digital services into the overall marketing mix for many of my clients. They make solid decisions, work within set parameters, and are there when I need them. Their ability to put a professional face on many of my clients has been an integral part in their respective successes.
Altera Web is, by far, one of the best companies that I’ve ever worked with. Their high regard for customer service, their attention to detail, their results-oriented goals, and their knowledge of the field is exceptional. They are one of a kind in this field.

Their responsiveness, guidance, and customer service are unparalleled. I would highly recommend them to any company looking to build, improve, or maintain their site.
Scott...thank you so much for a beautiful website. Your passion, diligence, creativity and commitment made it a joy to work with you.

Here's how we can help you
All web sites have goals and all web pages have purposes. We will strategize with you to make sure we are not only building a website that represents your vision well, but one that allows you to see a positive return on your investment. The site must orient the users, engage them and make them feel that the site is worth exploring. Users who feel frustrated, or are not able to complete desired tasks on a website, report negative experiences, most often due to poor usability and weak content. Our goal is to create positive encounters every time a user visits the site.
Studies show that in less time it takes to blink, people make aesthetic judgments that influence the rest of their experience with a website (and therefore with the people behind the website). Once a visitor comes to the your website, our main focus will always be on encouraging exploration and leading them down a path which helps you reach your online goals. Altera Web creates websites that are focused, clean and simple. Users’ attention is a finite resource and it is our job to help them find what they want as efficiently as possible.
We will be using the WordPress content management system as the backbone of your website. WordPress is the most popular CMS on the market today, with over 30% of all websites being run on WordPress in 2021. And we will also be utilizing the most user-friendly premium page builder on the market, allowing you to make updates simply and quickly. Full training will be provided. And naturally, the website will be mobile-friendly and SEO-friendly as well!
