Be prepared for our copywriters, designers, and developers to ask a lot of questions so we can reverse engineer your business to better understand what your customers or clients are looking for when it comes to your new website. When you work with a full service digital marketing agency, you have a team of experts at your disposal.

Your website tells potential customers who you are, what you do, and how you’ll help them. Your website should show the very best side of you, put your best foot forward, and ensure your potential clients or customers are so impressed in that first second of arriving on your site, and throughout their entire experience there, that they turn from prospects into customers.


When you work with The Media Captain, a premier Columbus web development company, you will be partnering with a team of designers and developers that are obsessed with quality and that will build your business a site that you’ll be proud to show off. Whether you are a local business or a national brand, we will create a site that is customized for your needs, designed to keep traffic on your site and that will lead to quality conversions.

All of the websites we design and develop are responsive across all devices, meaning the mobile experience is ideal. According to Smart Insights, there are more mobile searches versus desktop searches. This means your site needs to be designed with a mobile first mentality, which is one of our specialities.

We know that your business is like your baby – that’s certainly how we feel about ours! We will take care of and nurture your baby (aka your website) to help it grow into something that you are proud of and excited about, and also something that can stand on its own to help build and grow your business. We also have the SEO expertise to optimize your site so the search engines love it!

Schiff Properties owns and develops some of the most coveted commercial real estate in Columbus. Despite having a large property presence in Columbus, they were lacking a web presence, so they turned to The Media Captain to change that.

Our Columbus web design agency built the website, conducted the photography shoot, and created the design for the site. The Media Captain put Schiff Properties on the map so potential investors can find their most recent developments.

“Great client communication throughout the entire development process. They were proactive in setting up photo shoots at our various properties. Whenever I need an answer or something updated, their developers are on it! I strong recommend working with The Media Captain, you won’t be disappointed!”

Fortin Ironworks approached The Media Captain in need of a new website. Fortin has numerous divisions within its company. The leader in Ironworks wanted an easy to navigate site so current and perspective customers could easily find the appropriate department.

Before going into the development, The Media Captain’s IT department helped Fortin with server consolidation, to save on unnecessary costs while making their hosting more streamlined.

The Media Captain’s design team helped with the overall look and feel to provide an optimal user experience based on the different divisions (architectural ironwork, vintage market, metal fabrication and DIY Handrail). The development team at TMC then hardcoded the remainder of the site.

Since launching the new site, more pages are visited per user, the average time on site has increased and most importantly, the sales team at Fortin now has a great asset in their website to help them close more business.

DermWarehouse sells thousands of skin care and beauty products, all dermatologist recommended.

The Media Captain built the DermWarehouse site from scratch utilizing WooCommerce, an open source e-commerce platform for WordPress. Because of the large volume of products on the DermWarehouse site, this project was a large undertaking for The Media Captain’s development team and included setting up over one thousand individual product pages.

In addition to building the site and adding all of the products, The Media Captain assisted in setting DermWarehouse up with its payment gateway for credit card processing, plus PayPal and Square as alternate payment methods. TMC also integrated shipping software that pulls in orders from the backend of the site, coupon popups, live chat functionality, company and product reviews, and sales tax automation.

The name Cardale has a special meaning to anyone in the city of Columbus.

His legacy as a Buckeye will forever be cemented by the 2014 championship run where he led the Buckeyes to wins over Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship, Alabama in the college football semifinal and Oregon in the National Championship game.

Before getting in contact with The Media Captain, Cardale didn’t have a website.

Cardale Jones now has a hub at where he can direct potential sponsors, update his followers on events he attends, and a website which he controls where fans can learn more about his personal brand.

We couldn’t be more excited to team up with Cardale Jones to build him a championship caliber site.
