I build most websites on the WordPress platform. I do this for a multitude of reasons, but primarily because of its incredible versatility. It is the most widely used open source website platform out there… A staggering 75+ million websites are built on WordPress, which is over 30% of the internet, and there’s a good reason why. It has a user-friendly admin interface, so making content updates fast & easy. There are an infinite amount of ‘plugins’ available which can make your website to do pretty much anything you need. From e-commerce to a simple portfolio site like you’re looking at now… WordPress can do it.
At your service
Using digital marketing strategies and interface design, I’m here to help grow your business and reach your marketing goals. I use a mix of my experienced design background, knowledge of web development, and IT skills to solve your marketing needs.
As a summary of everything below, my specialties are working with newer companies, helping them with all aspects of their digital marketing and branding from the ground up. However, several of my projects have been smaller, one-off designs or websites. Whatever you may be looking for, I’m happy to help!
In my professional career I find some of my biggest assets to be project design/management and UX. Seeing a project from conceptualization all the way through to product launch; and many cases, long after.
Everything I build is mobile-responsive and secured with an SSL certificate, which are absolute musts these days.
Behind the scenes, I’m optimizing your website along the way for search engines like Google, so you have a solid, organic SEO (search engine optimization) foundation right out of the gate.
My method is simple. You tell me what kind of look you’re going for and the functionality you’re after, then I build it. Once your new website is looking and acting the way you’d like, I show you how to make as in-depth of changes as you want to learn, giving you the option to keep your site up-to-date on your own, without having to pay me for maintenance. More of a hands-off website owner? No problem! I offer maintenance & update services to meet your needs.
After the build and launch, I always make myself available to help you and answer any questions you may have.
For nearly every business, a logo or way to brand yourself is a necessity. Your logo says so much about your company and it’s your consumer’s first impression… a visual representation of what you’re all about.
I’ve created logos for all kinds of clients, and the end result is always their satisfaction. I take any design input you give me and run with it. I will typically have a few different options for you in the first phase; you then tell me what you like/dislike about each one. From there I make changes, then rinse & repeat as necessary.
Once your logo is finalized, I give you a variety of file types, along with the source file so you can begin branding any medium or substrate needed.
Search Engine Optimization
If you’re not paying for ads, where your website shows up when people search on Google is the top factor in your website’s traffic. Search engine algorithms take hundreds of factors into play when they decide where you rank in their search results. Ranking organically is a never-ending job that requires time and effort to show up near the top.
I’m here to help you rank organically by working on the most important things from that long list of ranking factors. Updating & fine-tuning your meta titles and descriptions behind the scenes; writing unique, rich, valuable content; optimizing coding; syncing your site with Google Search Console, Analytics, and Tag Manager; making user-interface adjustments that keep visitors on your site for longer… these are just a few things I do that help you rank higher.
