I Make Websites

Beautiful Websites, Excellent Service.

My clients are like you: someone who needs a website for a business or event. A website that fits their needs, and the needs of their customers. That's what I make for them. It's simple.

Some websites are simple HTML brochure sites. Some are data-driven & secure. And all are unique, designed, coded, and custom made to fill a specific need.

Process

The Process

It all starts with a chat.

Our first meeting, by phone, Skype, or in person, will help me understand a lot about your project. Then, I'll give you a detailed estimate before I start any work.

Design

Design

Your vision, brought to life.

Your descriptions, a consideration of competition, and current web design trends all inspire the designs I'll create, sketch, and then mock up for you. With your feedback, the design can be tweaked and changed until it's perfect.

Does your site need to be a beacon of good design and usability to compete in your industry? I can help you achieve that. Or do you just want a one-page brochure site so your customers know your address, phone number, and hours of operation? I can do that, too.

Development

Development

Making it go.

I take the approved design and turn it into a website, complete with interactive elements, forms, database communication, and social media connections. Everything you need, and nothing you don't want.

Plan on changing your site often? I can install WordPress or any other blgging platform or CMS to give you editability. Need interactive chat with clients on the site? I can help you choose and configure a third-party system to provide that functionality.

Optimization

Optimization

Making it awesome.

More and more people use their phones to look at the web--almost more than their computers. Your site needs to work on large and small screens to be accessible to your clients. I use responsive design to achieve this quickly and elegantly.

I can also help you set up free services like Google Analytics, domain email, marketing email accounts, etc. Since I know your business and your website, I can even guide you to applications and services online you may never have known existed—and you may never be able to live without them again!

Overtime

Overtime

Making your site work for you.

So your site is live--now how do people find it? Above and beyond the basics of SEO like keywords and descriptions are techniques like integrating live content, adding social media interactivity, and working with an SEO firm. It's up to you how much effort you want to put into SEO, and I'll assist you at any level.

Finally, I am available for your site's updates, upgrades down the road, and advice, as the web keeps changing, on how to best position your site against the competition.

Who Am I?

I'm a small business owner, like you.

My skills have let me build a business of my own creating, and programming websites—and designing logos, print pieces, and other identity materials as well. I love what I do, and so I enjoy helping other small businesses build their brand and utilize the internet to their advantage.

When I'm not working on websites, I'm usually hanging out with my husband and 3-year-old son gardening, sewing, baking, brewing beer, or watching way too many episodes of a TV show in a row on Netflix.

Please contact me about your next design or web project. Be as specific as you like, or wait until we chat to give me all the nitty-gritty details. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
