Don't Get a Website. Get an awesome Website!

Built to look right on
ANY
device!

Your new logo design, which is the foundation for your branding and advertising, is done! You might be thinking about slapping it on business cards or brochures, but you need a professionally built Website before passing out marketing material. And as competition grows exponentially, you will lean on that Website more and more to tell potential customers, "Check out my stuff - it's better!"

If you're considering a DIY Website design or overused template, don't - both are pretty easy to spot and can quickly make your first impression with potential customers your last impression. My Website Design solutions are 100% unique so you stand out in a crowd of copycats.

The Correct Steps to Brand your Business

Delivering Super Fast page load times

I deliver performance-based Websites, because page load time is just as important as displaying relevant content. This is also the fastest way to get visitors to the information they want, which means your Website is better at converting clicks into sales. In contrast, a slower performing Website is likely to frustrate visitors, converting them into "bounces" - visiting a Website once to never return.

A one-second delay in page load time has been shown to cause a 7 percent loss in conversion and 11 percent fewer page views. For a Website earning $50,000 a day, that adds up to more than $1 million in lost sales each year! - PR Newswire

Already have a Website? If you paid a Web designer for performance that is not close to the example below, your Website may be delivering a steadily declining customer experience, instead of sales leads.

Tested using a 5/1 Mbps broadband connection from a Dallas-based server. Loaded Time was 2.8s using a mobile connection.

Helping you convert visitors into buyers

Some features & services that can significantly improve your Website's conversion rate...

Easy to Use

Ever used LibreOffice, OpenOffice or Word? Then adding content to your new Website will be super easy.

Type some text, drop-in a photo or two, even a video using a toolbar layout you're already familiar with.

Unlimited Content

Ever seen this advertised - "Need more than 4 pages? Get more pages starting at $100 ea..."
Yes, some Web designers charge to add more pages to your Website!

I build database-driven Websites so you can add any number of pages, with no additional fees.

Contact Form

O

A contact form should be the backbone of your Website marketing strategy - this is where sales leads are born!

Ask me how this feature can increase your conversion rate by guiding a user through the process.

Website Hosting

I'm not a Web host provider, but I have enough experience to talk clients through hosting choices (shared, VPS, private, etc.) and options (e-mail, storage, bandwidth, etc.) to ensure a stable Website environment for years to come.

E-Commerce

O

Today’s online shoppers have very high expectations of the customer experience, so it's critical not to present them with something clunky and frustrating.

I helped clients successfully sell a handful of items to tens of thousands using management tools for inventory, sales tax, shipping rates, product variants and more.

Google Map

O

Adding a map to your Website not only does the obvious; helps potential customers find your physical store, but adds legitimacy and becomes an attention-grabbing element on that page.

E-mail Marketing

O

What will you do with that solid sales lead from your contact form? Add that person to your newsletter subscription list!

Ask me about adding an e-mail marketing component to your Website - manage your list, send newsletters, all from your Website. No third-party app, no additional fees.

Testimonials

O

Adding a Google map, phone number and company info to your Website are great ways to start a reputation-building strategy. Another component that increases credibility is Testimonials, by showing potential customers how effective and reliable your products and services are.

Responsive Design

As of 2018, non-responsive Websites are penalized by search engines, meaning they now rank far lower in search indexes. And this is why I build every Website as responsive so it appears correctly on any device; desktop, tablet or smartphone.

As mobile usage grows, this just makes sense.

Your business deserves better than a free Website builder ad pinned to the top of 'your' pages.

Web Design frequently asked questions

  • What exactly does "page load time" mean and why should I care?

    Essentially, this is the time it takes your Web browser to request content from a remote Web server, that server to process your request, send that data to your Web browser to process the response, then fully render the page. An illustration might be more effective than fifty words:

    Websites that typically have performance issues are those using a template - these mostly finished Websites are coded and designed by Website developers to appeal to a wide range of customers, then sold for $50 - $150 per Web address. Unfortunately, the code-bloat that makes the site so flexible and awesome looking has a nasty side-effect of significantly increasing page load times, some north of 20 seconds before fully loaded!

    Search engines don't care how slick a Website looks. Fast page load times and relevant content ranks Websites higher in search results.

  • How much does a Website cost?

    Short answer: "how much" depends on so many factors, it should be impossible for anyone to declare in one sentence, "Your new Website will cost this much..." Seriously though, if you went car shopping and the sales person threw out a price immediately after introducing herself, you would be shocked.

    Long answer: Let's talk about...

    • your company history, products, services and marketing strategy.
    • how you want your new Website to 'greet' visitors.
    • any graphic design, copywriting or content creation needs.
    • the importance of people finding your Website, AKA search engine optimization.
    • how you utilize marketing collateral (business cards, brochures, etc.) to build your brand awareness.
    • what features your Website should have to generate solid sales leads.

    Then I can provide a fair and reasonable quote.

  • Are there any hidden fees - do you charge extra for anything?

    Nope, my quotes are detailed enough that you know exactly what you're paying for.

    Regardless of who you hire or how their fee is structured, you will have to pay for at least three things to get your new Website online.

    • Domain name registration - the address for your new Website, which can be registered for 1 - 10 years.
    • Server for your Website files and your e-mail accounts, typically referred to as Website hosting. This is paid annually.
    • Website development and design. Unless you got some mad coding skills, it's probably best to hire someone to code and design this 24/7 marketing tool. While Website 'D & D' is a one-time fee, many clients later ask for additional features and/or sign up for a Website Maintenance Plan.

    Be mindful of companies offering Website "packages." Ask for details, for example; is Web hosting on a shared system or private server? There's a huge performance difference (and cost), which may affect how your Website performs as features are added and it attracts more visitors.

    Another consideration is ownership - I can make suggestions and guide you through the process of domain registration and sensible Web hosting plans, but only you should pay for these services. I receive my share of phone calls from the friend who let the ex-friend (business partner) pay for the domain registration. That ex-friend still has control of the domain.

  • I have a small shop. What's your opinion on using a free Website builder?

    "Free" anything is always tempting. But if your strategy is to convert a 'free' Website into an obscene amount of money, long term, here are several considerations...

    • Some of these services can only afford the free-model by dumping every Website on shared hosting (the same Web server). Slow loading pages (primarily due to limited bandwidth) is one of the biggest reasons search engines penalize Websites, free or otherwise.
    • Be ready to pass out lots of business cards with your new Website address; "my-business-name.free-website-builder-name.com".
    • Read the really fine print before creating an account, especially if you're required to add a credit card - some plans will silently auto-bill you for another year when the "limited trial" expires.
    • Changed your mind? Moving your content to a dedicated Web server may be difficult or impossible - rightfully no free Website builder wants you to leave, so an export feature may not be available. In that case you're stuck there, or expect to pay a Website developer several hundred dollars or more to migrate your data to a dedicated server.
    • Nothing is free, including free Website builders, which make the bulk of their revenue through advertising - "free" actually means you become the product through a "built with XYZ Free Website..." banner at the top of your Website, your e-mail address, home address, phone number and Website address sold to advertisers, their banner ads appearing on your 'free' Website and more!

    If you are a small shop, keep in mind it's even more important to think outside the box, doing everything possible to make your Website unique. Free Website builders will give you every wiz-bang option to 'drag-n-drop' onto a page. Just don't go crazy with bouncing text and sliding images because you think that looks really cool - it might instead damage your credibility with visitors who see it as a goofy gimmick. Remember, this might be the first (or last) impression a visitor has about your whole business.

    50% of new businesses fail in the first 5 years. You should do everything possible to stay off that list.

  • Can you proof my text before adding it to my Website?

    Absolutely! I offer Copywriting as a service, but would need to see your copy before providing a quote. This service includes grammar, sentence structure and readability improvements.

    Ideally this is done in conjunction with Search Engine Optimization, to improve the readability and keyword density of your pages.
