Web Pros, Inc. History
An Idea Is Born
While Eric was a junior in college at University of Wisconsin Green Bay, he was in the meat of his psychology major, but people started having a dire need to get dial up modems, use email and browse the web. Back then, he saw a business opportunity so he picked up an HTML 4 book and started learning how to code web sites using Notepad in the summer of 1998.
Shortly thereafter, he decided to form Web Pros, Inc. and his first web design client purchased a site from him in August of 1998. Back then it was a hand coded world full of animated gif's and very simply design structures. There were so many different search engines available it made it almost impossible to know which one was the 'best".
As the internet developed, and the bubble burst in 2008, times would change and so would client needs. Flash would become a craze for a very short time, and now clients demand mobile structures that resize to their phone or tablet. Facebook is now a must and keeping your blog and search engine optimization up to date is a high priority.
While Eric is the primary designer and manages the web hosting servers, his wife Connie took a role in the company in January of 2014. She handles customer service and most of the office duties.
