Executive Web Management LLC (EWM) was founded in 2003 to complement its sister company, Executive Computer Management Solutions Inc. (ECMSI). The focus of EWM from day one has always been to provide solid, real-world website solutions for businesses and individuals.
Due to the complexities of northeastern Ohio, and in particular the Mahoning Valley in which EWM is based, it's safe to say that the economy drives market fluctuations more rapidly these days. As a result, EWM understands that businesses and individuals are budget-minded but also want (and need) websites that can compete in local, regional, national, and world markets.
EWM takes a much different approach to websites than our competitors. We don't work on commission. We will never recommend or sell anyone anything that they don't need. But we do approach every potential client with the intent of a long-term, professional relationship. And we always strive for fairness, both for the client and for ourselves. Your bottom line is always our top priority.
Take a look below at EWM's services and our ever-expanding portfolio to see how we've helped businesses and individuals with their websites. Then feel free to contact us to set up a meeting to discuss your solutions.
EWM believes in talking extensively with the client before starting a website design. As a result, every site that we produce is customized to expressly fit the client's wishes and needs.
In addition, we meticulously plan the entire site's structural layout so that future changes are easier to implement. Items can be amended relatively quickly to an existing site because of our streamlined system, resulting in an efficient use of time and therefore tightly-controlled billing.
We don't just design sites from scratch, though. If you have an existing site that you'd like us to redesign or maybe just spruce up a bit, we'd be happy to evaluate it and formulate a plan that fits both your needs and your budget.
EWM owns its own dedicated server for stability and flexibility. Therefore our hosting plan cost is modest* and includes virtually unlimited storage, unlimited monthly data transfer, multimedia support, and statistics package. Additional items can always be added at a nominal cost.
Some websites will require a dedicated IP address, security certificate, and so on, depending upon the scale. Our hosting plans can accommodate such situations with an adjusted rate which will be determined after our initial client meeting.

Of course, your website will need to be found in order to generate traffic. EWM will help you find your perfect domain name—if you don't already have one—and then go through the process of basic search engine optimization (SEO). We work one-on-one with our clients to construct the optimal keywords, description, and other important parameters for search engines. Then we submit your site to multiple search engines so that you're catalogued quicker, meaning your target audience finds you faster.
Once your site is up and running, you may wish to make website changes on your own, such as amending text or adding an image. We always encourage our clients to take a proactive approach to managing their websites when possible, yet that's not always an easy concept if you're unfamiliar with the methods. EWM can suggest and provide training for a content management system (CMS)** that will perfectly complement your lifestyle while being very budget-friendly. A CMS is not a necessity, but it does let you take control of updating your site at your convenience, day or night. EWM will expertly guide you with this transition.
**Content management system may require a separate purchase by the client.
Wordpress has evolved from a simple blog manager to an entire website builder. EWM realizes that sometimes a custom site is too much for some people's needs, so we offer Wordpress as an alternative. We can get your new site installed in literally minutes. From there, you take over the admin control panel and modify the site to your needs. And we'll always be here for support if you need it.
Have a Wordpress site you'd like to move? We can help you with the transition.
The social media phenomenon is an incredibly efficient way to communicate with the world. But it doesn't have to be a scary proposition—EWM can help set up your social media accounts, provide any necessary images, and link those accounts back to your website. We can also help with a flexible update schedule that fits your needs. Of course, we'll always be available to train you about using social media responsibly and correctly for your business.
One of the best ways that your company can communicate quickly, effectively, and efficiently with your clients—and potential clients—is through an e-mail newsletter.
Despite what you may have heard, online newsletters are not difficult to create or send out. We've got the perfect newsletter service to handle all of your needs, large or small, for that optimal target market. We'll even customize the layout and look to match your website or your business's current branding.
After the newsletter is mailed out, you can then get updates on the metrics associated with it (number of opens, clicked links, and so on). This will show how e-mail newsletters are a cost-effective way to market yourself.
Our server supports cPanel®, one of the industry's leading control panel products for website management on the server.
Once logged into cPanel, there's a lot you can do to enhance and examine your site. For example, you can view your site's statistics, add e-mail accounts, and much more.
It's just another powerful way that EWM lets you take a proactive approach to managing your website.
EWM's design team works quickly and efficiently. Our billing time is in partial-hour increments*, so you will always be billed ethically. If a website change will involve more time than is customary, we will notify you first of the approximate time range so that you can make a decision before we start. We will never overbill you for our services, nor will we ever start a major update without your approval. With EWM, you will always be in control of your expenses.

We love keeping in touch with our clients (and the public in general) with our newsletters. Below is an archive of our newsletters, plus our latest one at the top. Be sure to sign up—it's fast, safe and secure. And be assured that we won't sell your information to anyone.
Our client list is one of the most comprehensive in the Mahoning Valley—and with good reason. EWM has an excellent working relationship with our clients and we ensure that their sites are exactly what they need (and want). But more importantly, we feel humbled that they trust their collective web presence with us.
The examples below represent a small fraction of our clientele, but it gives great insight into our capabilities.
