Title III of the ADA has mandated that all places of public accommodation are required by law to remove any barriers that would inhibit a person with disabilities from being able to access the business’ goods and services. This includes websites for employment agencies, labor organizations, state and federal or employers with 15 or more employees.
Many people interact and perceive the online world a little differently. The internet world is so widely used that ADA compliance also applies to websites and mobile apps.
So, why should we make our website accessible to people who have disabilities that affect hearing, vision or physical capacities?
Other than a moral obligation to ensure people with disabilities have the same opportunities as anyone else, ADA compliance can increase your target audience, improves SEO efforts, helps build your reputation and overall better website usability. There is also the matter of a possible penalty for not being ADA compliant as well.
Web accessibility can seem complex and overwhelming if you do not know where to start. According to the last census study, nearly 1 in 5 people have a disability in the United States.
Luckily, Berry Digital Solutions offers this service to new and existing customers. Your website should be accessible for everyone, regardless of ability. And we can help you get there.

Last August, a local businessman came to Berry Digital Solutions looking for....well, a digital solution. He had recently acquired a popular national product, The Insider Bat™. The Insider Bat™ was well-liked and highly reviewed by thousands of happy customers, but it was mostly just known on the baseball and softball trade show circuit and through some word-of-mouth between some highly respected coaches and instructors.
So our task was to help spread the word about this wonderful training tool and create a website to make The Insider Bat™ available for purchase online. Within a matter of a couple of weeks, we had created a Facebook page, Google business listing, and built The Insider Bat a beautiful new online home to the exact specifications of the client. Almost immediately, the site began paying for itself with online sales...with almost no promotion of any kind! The Insider Bat™ was such a solid design and well-respected training tool amongst baseball and softball experts, that it pretty much sold itself.
Sometimes, that's all it takes! Create a product that people love, and the happy customers will act as your sales team!
That business model frees up our client to expand his offerings to more great products, rather than hiring more support staff and adding to the overhead costs of The Insider Bat™. Now he's using his Insider Bat platform to sell some of these great new products, including the Hands Inside Trainer, Soft Hit Balls & Lizard Skins Bat Grips. And we're excited to partner with this client on a couple of new products and websites in the very near future!
Just a couple of Champaign County businesses growing together by offering quality products and services in a new digital world!
Local excavating and sealcoating company, No Limits from St Paris, needed a web presence to connect with customers. They wanted to showcase their current work as well as other services they offer. Take a second and check out their new website at www.nolimitexcavating.com.
When the Village of St Paris became frustrated with trying to keep their residents informed online, they came to us with a small budget. We were able to create a beautiful, easy to navigate website for them that can be updated easily, while at the same time, created an advertising platform for local businesses in the village. This was a match made in heaven as now the village website is being used as an informational money maker for the Village itself. Check out the new design at www.stparisohio.org. Also visit www.wespendlocal.com/advertising for more information on advertising on the website.
We love helping organizations make a real difference in our communities by creating a great user friendly website with a cause. The Logan County C.O.R.E. is exactly that. Please visit www.LoganCountyCore.com to find out more about their efforts and how you can find help for yourself or someone you love.

We first met Nate Dawson at a Champaign County Chamber event for young professionals. He was in the middle of a website redesign with another company and I told him I would take a look at his final design once it launched. Nearly two years later he called with that website not yet launched. We pride ourselves on making your website design process as easy, and as efficient, as possible. We were able to create a new design and launch his site in less than a month. Nate was excited to have someone who didn't end the relationship there. like most small business owners, he was in need of someone running his website full time. He now has a direct contact that allows him to communicate changes timely and on his terms. Check out his new site at SterlingRestore.com.
