Web design that commands attention.
Your website should be your first choice to promote your business. It is easier than ever to build a web presence without breaking your budget.
A WEBSITE YOU WILL LOVE
I work with you to develop a unique, customer-focused design that showcases your services.
Your site will be designed to be mobile friendly and responsive, so visitors will be able to browse your website easily, on any device.
I work with reliable, secure hosting services and install security software to discourage hackers.
Each page on your website includes keywords and descriptions that help search engines like google find you and understand what your site is about.
I stay with you as needed to make sure your site continues to perform as you intended. I install software updates and monitor security.
CREATING OR IMPROVING A WEBSITE–
HOW DOES IT WORK?
While websites are as individualized as the people who own them, there are some commonalities. Generally, this is how I work with you:
First, a meeting, free of charge, where you tell me about your business.
- What do you know about your customers?
- What do you know about your competitors?
- What is the purpose of your website? (I can help you clarify)
- How do you want people to interact with your site?
- How do you plan for your site to grow over time?
- What websites have you seen that you like?
- What you have done so far, and what do you hope to accomplish?
- Your budget for a website, if you have one.
- Your schedule.
- What materials you have in hand, such as photographs and written materials.
Next, I prepare a proposal that details what you can expect: content overview, user description, site goals, schedule, deliverables, responsibilities, budget. I believe in “no surprise” projects! (A result of over 16 years in bidding and managing high-tech projects.)
You get to choose from design templates that I will propose, and customize your favorite template with graphics, colors and typefaces so that it meets your needs for branding and strengthening your image with your customers.
You get to review and refine as we go along. I use a flexible approach to development, understanding that, as you see things take shape, you may want to change some of your original ideas.
I stay with you after the project is over to make sure things go smoothly. I install security software and monitor for threats to your site, long after our development phase is completed. I can also set up maintenance plans to review with you site performance statistics, backups, system updates and features such as search optimization and social media marketing so that your site, and your Web presence, evolve with your customers’ needs.
I AM TECHNICAL, BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE.
I research the best technology for creating a website that will meet your requirements. Then I prepare a proposal, also free of charge, that includes a project description, milestones, responsibilities, budget, and deliverables. I do this for all my website development projects.
