Our Story

November 19, 1996, was the day CWS founder, president, and Chief Happiness Officer, Alan De Keyrel, registered for our first domain, corporate-web.com. At that time, Alan was in college and the $100 registration fee was one of his big “start-up” expenses for his new business concept. Since that fateful day, CWS has been able to add at least one team member per year.

Consistent growth has been a part of CWS’ history due to our team’s dedication to solving clients’ problems, not “selling” them on our services. Providing value to our target audiences has allowed us to build honest, long-lasting relationships throughout our community and beyond. Moreover, we haven’t strayed far from CWS’ very first slogan: Dynamic solutions for the Internet.

Our Culture

Always Evolving, Ever Changing

When we asked our Chief Happiness Officer, Alan, what he thought makes an ideal work culture, he replied:

“There is no one ideal culture. The culture that works for CWS may not work for another business. It has to be unique for you and your team. Once you understand your culture (who you are), you have to make sure to hire new employees who match the culture.”

And, that’s what we’ve done. Our tight-knit team of analysts, designers, writers, managers, and programmers like to keep a balance of professionalism and fun. Don’t be surprised if you walk through our doors to find us watching funny YouTube videos or playing foosball. You might even catch a client or two participating in a friendly game.

We Get Results

Main Street Dental Clinics (MSDC) are an affiliation of locally-owned dentistries in southeast Minnesota. MSDC had built a successful dental practice; however, they felt they could make more of an impact through an optimized website and effective marketing. We agreed.

The CWS team helped MSDC freshen up their branding and messaging along with creating a brand new website. Then, a process we like to call growth-driven design was implemented. This meant that MSDC’s website and marketing efforts would never go stale. Our team is constantly updating Main Street Dental’s strategies and digital user experience so that they can focus on what they do best: dentistry. Growth-driven design has helped MSDC achieve:

  • 328% increase in organic traffic,
  • 2 featured Google snippets,
  • 13% increase in local traffic,
  • and a 47% increase in views to contact pages.
