What I Do
First and foremost I build custom WordPress websites for Small Businesses and Entrepreneurs. However, the build is only a fraction of the process. I strive to extract the precise information from you in order to create a marketing solution in the form of a website.
The sites I build are:
- Easy to Use: Depending on your preferences, I often implement tools such as Advanced Custom Fields and Page Builders to ensure that the client can maintain their site easily without having to interact with any actual code.
- Mobile Responsive: Your website will adapt and adjust beautifully on mobile phones and tablets.
- Fast and Secure: I am happy to provide solid hosting recommendations (especially my own!!) and will install necessary security and speed optimizations for the client.
- SEO optimized. As the site is being built, every component will be considered and set up according to best SEO practices to be sure search engines know all about you or your client.
Who I Work With
There are a few prerequsites that I require from clients that I work with:
You Have Goals: There should be clarity in what you wish to accomplish and a preconceived general idea of how you best wish to get there.
You Have Time: In order to achieve the most beneficial results from our project, it is important that you have time allotted to invest in the project and that you are consistently available.
You Have A Budget: Depending on the project, and in order to really hit a home run and ensure top notch quality and care, it is going to take some investment and this should be discussed from the outset of the project.
You Have Passion: Are you passionate about this project? Whether its building a site, building an audience, or ranking higher on Google, it can take time. It is that passion that will sustain the energy of the project and ensure the best outcome.
Strategy – This is the most important step. Who is your target audience? What are your unique business goals? What tools will we need to implement to achieve the best solutions? I’ll ask the right questions to uncover the reasons why you need a new website and exactly what it is you’re trying to achieve.
Design – With our goals set, we will then move on to begin the design process. In this phase we will create things like color schemes, pick fonts, create sitemaps, mockups, and work together to design each page of your site to best implement our predetermined strategy.
Build – Next, I will begin the custom build based on our predetermined design and structure, including the tools discussed in our strategy session. After the build your site will be tested for responsiveness, speed, and overall functionality. Once your site is at peak, we launch.
After Care – Post launch, if you are subscribed to my website care plan, I will continue to provide routine preventative and proactive maintenance to your site. Also if any further training or consulting is needed, it will take place here.
