WebTechLabs is a boutique web design and development firm located in the Los Angeles area.
Back in 2003, our founder was faced with the dilemma of the lack of quality, affordable solutions for e-commerce to use in a new online venture. The e-commerce platforms in the market at that time were lacking many of the common place features you see it today’s online stores.
He contacted many developers and shared with them his vision of how he wanted to improve on and enhance the existing online shopping carts. Unfortunately many thought the customization and features were too advanced or too cost prohibitive since they weren’t done before with the open source tools available.
Our founder was not discouraged but instead inspired to take on the challenge himself. Without any previous design or programming background, he taught himself web design and PHP coding. Instead of learning by reading books and taking classes, he dove head first into open source e-commerce software and just started experimenting with code in attempt to customize his own online store with all the bells and whistles he dreamed about.
This foundation of learning website design and development as a business owner trying to find solutions, gave us the unique perspective to understanding both the business and marketing aspects as well as the behind the scene technical side.
Over the near decade our team has honed our skills and have accumulated a wide array of experience creating internet solutions for nearly every industry and category. We have developed a custom content management system back in 2004 that is still in use today and more recently internet marketing software for automotive dealerships. We have also been involved in developing custom web applications for Silicon Valley start-ups and ran very successful SEO campaigns for a movie studio in Hollywood.
Please do not hesitate to contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
