- The planning, design, and deployment of your organization’s website

We are especially good at empowering marketing directors by helping them regain control over their websites in order to launch campaigns faster in-house and enjoy 24/7 access to online content.
We embrace great design, we love to educate, and we have a proven process for success. If it sounds like we might be able to help your organization, please talk to us.
The old days of taking a few notes, throwing some designs out there, and seeing what sticks are over. Website planning has evolved and ibu has a proven process for yielding predictable results.
Our process is called Website Planning and guarantees that you are always in control of your budget and you always know exactly what to expect. You wouldn’t build a house without a architect, so why build your website without one?
Great design matters, and we look at each project as an opportunity to add a little bit of beauty to the Internet. Professional design inspires trust, and we want your constituents to trust you and feel good about doing business with you.
Based in Denver, Colorado, ibu has been designing for the web since 1998. The web is not print. It is also not an ad campaign. The web is a place where different rules apply and where information and content are as important as aesthetics and layout.
Design on the web is about permission marketing, conversion, and brand loyalty. It is about giving your constituents the easiest path to what they need. It is about closing the gap between you and your audience.
We understand how to create beautiful design online and then how to combine it with best practices in usability and functionality. When you work with ibu, your organization will look like a market leader. When you work with ibu, your constituents and prospects will trust you based on first impressions. When you work with ibu, you will be proud of your image online.
Want to see what we’ve done for others? Take a look at our work to see for yourself. We have expertise in a number of markets, including non-profit, associations, manufacturing, professional services, e-commerce, financial services, health care, education, and more.
If great design and a strong first impression matters to you, this might be a good reason to contact us and learn more. We’ve helped hundred of other organizations in the corporate, non-profit, and small business space and we would love to find out if we are a good fit for you.
At ibu, we understand that not everyone is a wordsmith and not everyone has time to write and polish content for the web. It can be a daunting task to come up with content for your website, especially since writing content for the web is different than writing for other mediums.
We write and edit content for the web. Whether it’s creating a new set of content for your new website, editing existing content, or ghost blogging, we can free you to get other things done while we help you communicate online.

Your website should be easy to use and easy to manage. That’s why all of our websites include a robust, easy to use Content Management System (CMS) that allows your marketing team to make changes to your site 24/7. A Content Management System, or CMS, gives you a powerful set of tools to manage your website without relying on an IT department or an outside company.
The older business model of relying on an IT department or an external company is no longer acceptable. Today’s websites function as information hubs, with interactive components like blogs, event registrations, time-critical press releases, sponsorships, surveys, email campaigns, forms, e-commerce, and more. Waiting for an IT person or a website company to make changes to your website slows down your operations and hurts productivity.
A Content Management System from ibu puts you back in control.
Post blogs, videos, images, forms, event registrations, new products, and press releases on your website in minutes with no special technical skills required. Analyze the effectiveness of your content with our built-in SEO analyzer. Give control to multiple people in your organization and tailor access based on roles. Link your website to the leading social networks and increase the distribution of your content.
No software is required. Manage your website from any computer starting the day it launches. A Content Management System gives you back the time and attention you need to run your business or organization. Our CMS also allows you to delegate roles and responsibilities to other team members so that the workload is shared.
Organizations from many different industries have trusted ibu to provide a robust, secure, and easy-to-use Content Management System including health care organizations, non-profits, global manufacturing companies, professional services firms, educational institutions, banks and credit unions, law firms associations, libraries, and more.
