How Bento Sites Improves Your Website

Healthy Web Design

Jeff Shibasaki started Bento Sites with the belief that every small business owner should be able to have a healthy website which they can easily manage. In fact, that’s why Jeff modeled Bento Sites after bento — the Japanese meal-in-a-box that includes all of the essential food groups.


Core Values

Jeff’s recipe for healthy web design is integrated throughout every product and service at Bento Sites.

1. Self-Managed Website
Small business owners should have full ownership and full control of their websites.

2. Affordable
Democratize web design, SEO and digital marketing.

3. Beautiful
Make it beautiful — from behind-the-scenes workflows to every post, product and website project.

4. Organized
The easier visitors can navigate a website, the more likely they’ll complete the intended tasks.

5. Minimalistic
Less, but better.

6. Compelling
Posts, products and services as well as redesign projects are the result of research, best-in-class processes and a keen attention to detail.

7. Complete
SEO and digital marketing are part of the web design process, not an afterthought.

8. Strategy
A website without a strategy is just an expensive brochure. Our result-driven process focuses on leads and conversions.

9. Satisfies Visitors & Search Engines
Analytics, branding, content, design, SEO, usability — visitor and search engine satisfaction starts here.
