Thanks for visiting our new site and checking out our blog. Here you can expect posts regarding website tips and insights, relevant educational content, as well as company updates like this one.

I wanted to start this company because I felt there was an opportunity to offer premium, modern digital services to small and medium-sized businesses in the Cincinnati region and beyond.

There are plenty of options out there to get a website up and running nowadays, either via DIY tools or other web agencies.

DIY tools, though they might be good enough for some small businesses, give the illusion of value because they are cheap and easy to get up and running, but at the end of the day, you have to invest a significant amount of your own time into building and maintaining your site, staying on top of trends, integrations, etc, taking time and attention away from your core business. The end results are often buggy, unmaintained, difficult to scale, and feature-lacking websites.

The vast majority of other web agencies have not updated their tools and processes with the times. They mostly still use WordPress and cookie-cutter templates, and the end results often lack originality and a modern user experience.

WordPress and the mentioned DIY methods above might be cheap and easy, but we are firm believers that cheap and easy doesn't yield quality. Instead, we use the latest and greatest tools available to build truly custom sites from scratch adhering to the current best practices.

Additionally, I was surprised to learn many local businesses and entities were paying top dollar for custom sites that they don't even completely own once they are built. This is concerning. We build sites that become assets to your business and you 100% own.

Lastly, we strongly believe that original, high-quality media is essential for a good business website. Therefore, we have made investments in offering photography services in-house. We have our license from the FAA to operate drones for commercial use, giving us the ability to capture incredible aerial photos and video.

We look forward to getting to know our small business community in the Cincinnati region and beyond. Please feel free to reach out via our Contact Us page or hello@2riversdigital.com.

Stay tuned for future updates and educational content!
