Development, Consulting & Content Writing
The most important aspect of any website, but especially for the
website of an information publisher, is getting visitors to the
information they need as quickly and cleanly as possible.
(If your visitors need to click more than three times to get to what
they want, chances are you've lost them to a competitor's site where
they won't have to work so hard.)
You want an attractive, content-rich site with navigation so
logical and easy-to-understand that just about anyone could use it
No one likes it when a website's design and navigation makes them
feel less-than-bright. Unfortunately, though, too many websites seek
to impress rather than welcome and inform their visitors.
When you choose MGP Direct as your web consultant, our main job is

get what they need... with ease, simplicity and speed. You'll hear us
