Website Designs for Your Needs

I can build websites in many different ways, but my platform of choice is WordPress.  I can build for you anything from a simple brochure website to large and complex website with added functionality.  Whatever you are looking for in your website, I can help you achieve something that is designed to grow with your needs whatever they may be.

Mobile Friendly Websites

All websites I build are optimized for smart phones and tablets.  In other words, they are “Mobile Friendly” and will look great on most all tablets and phones.

Existing Website Makeover or New Websites

Do you currently have a WordPress website that needs updating, a makeover, or added functionality?  Perhaps you have never had a website before and don’t know where to start.  No matter where you are in your internet presence, I can help develop a package to meet your needs.  I do everything from build websites from scratch to re-modeling an existing website, to security and maintenance.  If you need help, I can get your ideas off the ground.

Flexible Options for Every Need

Since no two situations are exactly the same, and your needs will vary from everyone else, I find it necessary to be flexible in my offerings.  I want to give the personal service and customization that I would expect if our roles were reversed.  I find “Cookie Cutter Packages” to be needlessly restrictive and counter to making happy people.  My proposals are designed specific to you and your needs.  However, they are not chiseled in stone and I am flexible enough, and I’m not afraid to step outside of initial agreements if required in order to make my clients happy.

Click the Tabs above for two possible design packages.   These are meant only as guidelines to give you an idea of what your project might cost before you decide to contact me.   While these suggestions may not suit your needs completely on their own, they are a great starting platform to build on.  Customizing is simple.
Contact Me to discuss your needs.

I do things a bit different than many web design companies.  I DO NOT host websites or domains.  (For those new to the website world, a domain name is basically the internet “address” of your website, for example,  It’s not that I cannot host a website or domain name.  The fact is, I can and do host domains and websites that belong to me.  They belong to me, I own them, and they are fully under my control.  If you hired a web company to build and design a site for you and you did not buy your hosting and domain name, you do not have control over your own site; the company you hired does and while there are those companies out there that are honest in these matters, I have seen many times where they make it very difficult for you to get control of your own site!  That’s because they are making money off you and they don’t want you to leave! 

I educate my clients of this practice and urge that you take ownership of your website and pay less money in the long run!  It’s not a lot of extra work.  You need to buy a domain name and website hosting plan.  It’s that simple.  These are yearly costs you will be paying anyway, but you will not be paying a mark up on these costs to a third party, and you will have total control of your website.

For all my clients, I also provide a file folder that contains every file I used to create the website.  That includes a full backup of the site files and database, every image file, and all files used to create all artwork, including logos, for the entire site.
