ABout FTM Designs

Professional Website Developers

FTM Designs, also known as First Turn Marketing, is a website design company that likes to "stand out in the crowd." We are located in Baxter, Minnesota, and have been building websites since the spring of 2007.

FTM Designs believes the key to a successful website is to understand our clients’ needs and the problems they’re trying to solve. That is why we work with you to find the right design for your business. Our websites are simple to use, easy to find, and most of all provide an enjoyable end-user experience.

Our first website is a little more than outdated now. But, in 2007 it fit in with other websites. Throughout the years, advanced technology has significantly improved website design capabilities. If your business has an outdated website or doesn’t have a website yet, you may be missing out on potential customers. Gone are the days of looking up a phone number or address in the phone book.

Our website developers stay on top of the latest technical information available in order to build our websites with advanced coding and the greatest SEO to help your business' online presence exceed.

What makes FTM Designs unique is that every website we build includes SEO, and the quote you receive for your project is the price that you pay. There are no hidden fees. The website we build for you will be responsive, meaning it will work on a laptop, mobile phone, tablet or anything else you want to use.

Greg Schmidt: Performance / Marketing Manager Paradigm Automotive

I was very skeptic about having a new website built as I had been through 3 different fast talking web designers and was getting fed up throwing good money away after bad. I met with Kelly from FTM Designs a few different times to sketch up the new site and let him do his thing from there. The finished product is great. Kelly has a great eye for design blending with functionality. SEO has always been a challenge for me as we service a broad selection of search terms and now I rank very highly on many different keywords. After the site was built we got into e-commerce and he set the whole thing up for me as well as input products, shipping costs, and linked with PayPal. Working with Kelly has been a great experience and I would recommend him to anyone.

After trying two other website companies, I luckily found FTM Designs. I was more than pleased on their fast paced customer service. Not only did I get quick replies/ updates. The site seems better than I could hoped for. FTM Designs is the only website company that actually took my idea and built it into a real functional website. It's nice to have a company that cares about your online appearance for a VERY reasonable price!!

I own Lookin Good tint LLC for 14 years. Over the course of this time I have spent thousands of dollars on my web site. I have a friend who used FTM Designs and told me to give him a call. It was the easiest process that I ever had on my web site. I sent him my files and he added his touch and it was done!!! I have had a lot more action off my web site than ever before and couldn't be happier!!! my customers love my site! Thanks Kelly for the great work!!!

Keven Ness : Owner Lookin Good Tint

FTM Designs was easy to work with and knew exactly how to turn my ideas into a website. I cannot thank them enough for the fast turn around. Within a few weeks we went from ideas on paper to a live website. It’s nice to know that I have someone I can turn to when I need the job done right.
