Building a great site goes far beyond web design.
It's about providing value.
It's about creating a positive experience that keeps your visitor interested.
It's about smart design that always puts the people first, giving them exactly what they want.
It's about being seen - bringing in visitors and making a strong impression.
Web Design is complicated.
It doesn't have to be.
When you hire me, you need not worry about servers and databases, front end, back end, SEO, SEM, scalability, modularity - You get the idea.
Performance is built into my code for speed and reliability.
My focus is on creating interactive applications that help you stand out!
I engineer websites and applications that put people first.
A positive User Experience (UX) is the fruit of intuitive design and code that works.
I'm what they call a full stack developer.
Which basically means I'm comfortable with the entire development process, A to Z.
I'm more of a developer than designer.
If you want to hire a better graphic designer for the artwork and UI design, I do understand.
I create the foundation for your site's success, guide you to time and money saving practices, and show you the ropes for web design.
Find out what kind of designer / developer I am.
I do advanced programming work, generally in the form of interactive applications.
I started out doing Web Design, but transitioned into much more difficult work.
Along the way, I developed my own software for building interactive applications for the web (including websites).
This software saves you time and money, because it saves me tons of time and money.
It keeps the builds clean for rapid deployment, and it scales nicely because I've used a loosely decoupled, highly cohesive module system.
Find out why I do some marketing operations as well.
Even though I left marketing for web development, I spent half of a lifetime training to be in marketing.
Search Engine Optimization is actually quite technical, and
Search Engine Marketing is too important to mess up.
That's why I continue to keep them in my wheelhouse.
Site Analytics, A/B and Conversion Testing, Landing Pages - these are all important marketing operations for your website. They're also operations that require a keen eye for metrics and design - so it only makes sense to keep to my strengths.
Learn if you need a custom solution (or a prefab site).
Determining if you need a custom website really depends on what you want out of your site.
If you're on a tight budget, a prefabricated site / software solution is probably going to fit you better.
If you're wanting a high degree of interactivity and visibility, it takes quite a bit of work to create such sites/applications.
There are options in the middle, mixing and matching, compromising here and there, but it truly depends on the goals you have for your site.
The other things I can do for you.
I can do a lot, but there is only one of me.
Search Engine Optimization, Social Media Integration, Content Management Systems, eCommerce Systems, Site Analytics, A-B Testing, Conversion Testing, Search Engine Marketing, Landing Pages.
That's why I recommend hiring me as a web consultant.
Even though I can't always be the one doing the work, I can help you to ensure that your project is running LEAN and always headed in the right direction! Consulting isn't expensive - lost time and capital is.
