Websites

You don't need to stress about purchasing a domain, transferring it or any of the hassles my clients are nervous about.  I can help with single tasks you maybe stuck on, or start fresh and finish every step along the way.  I am a WIX CREATOR / Partner Level - so you can put your website in hands of someone with experience working with small businesses and independent contractors. 


(Below are a  few samples of different types of website options and integrations used to give potential clients an idea of the ranges available to suit budget and options.)

Website FAQs

PROCESS
I meet with the customer to figure out their technical limitations and comfort level before deciding which direction to go. For that reason, I now only use WIX. Wix now has responsive website capabilities with flex box technology. I can do the more advanced templates designs (for clients that will not be updating themselves) or use a more simple technology that clients can maintain themselves (I PROMISE!) and still have the movement and awesome capabilities) just more user friendly for people with no web experience. 

How long does a new website take?

It takes me approximately 2 weeks to design and layout the first draft. From there you will be able to review before we turnover you older site and go live with the new site. We can make changes and updates prior to going live.

How do clients maintain their site? That sounds scary!
You don't have to go it alone. You have the choice! I can maintain for clients, but some do not have a budget for even my affordable fees (or they want to be in control! That's OK too! I'm not one of those designer's that capture your property and won't let you control it. My goal is to make your website self-sustainable. The updates needed are designed and set up to be simple for the client. I offer custom video tutorials, on-site training and I'm always here for a quick phone call or to fix anything that you may have done wrong and can't figure out...but that rarely happens.

But WIX?  Really? 

Yes - WIX !  There is nothing I've wanted to do in over 8 years of working on that platform I cannot provide for my clients. It may not be for everyone, but focusing on small businesses, non-profits and independent contractor for YEARS - I've never been unable to do something I wanted for my clients. (Now they have new dynamic interface creating more options. I haven't moved any clients over yet, it's a bit more complicated, and many like to update sites themselves. But it IS possible! Clients updating themselves save money, but I can maintain for clients as well.  With that said, I'm sure serious SEO focused web design firms don't appreciate my opinion about simplicity and WIX. And there are reasons a business may need to spend THOUSANDS of dollars on a website, (imperative top ranking SEO/heavy retail.) But you can still have a very successful and affordable website with a presence on Google without spending all your limited small business profits.  
CONTACT ME - no pressure. I'm quite passionate about helping other small businesses because I've received help along the way myself, and I'm paying it forward.
