Why do I love web design? Because it’s like the Internet’s version of a handshake. Often your first impression of a company is through their website. Can you get a good feel of the level of expertise, professionalism and quality that the company offers? Is this first impression going to drive you to pick up the phone and call the company, or purchase an item through them over one of their competitors? All of these quandaries are problems I aim to answer in your favour when I design your website.
I design all of my clients’ websites on the WordPress platform for a few simple reasons:
- WordPress’s responsive layouts offer a premium experience for your site visitors. They are mobile friendly, tablet friendly, browser friendly, and seamlessly molds their layouts to look beautiful no matter what device your visitors are using. Gone are the days people need to scroll across a screen on a tiny phone to try and find your contact information!
- Speaking of device-friendly, WordPress does not use any flash, so you don’t have to worry about certain tablet users being left in the dark. Everyone will be able to see your beautiful work splashed right across the page as they browse through your site. To make things even better, WordPress uses powerful HTML5 to bring some super cool animations and effects to life.
- Don’t want to hire anyone to maintain your site for you? No problem! Once your new site launches, I will give you a personalized step-by-step how-to guide that will give you the tools to update content on your site and make sure everything continues to run smoothly. Of course if you would rather just leave all that to the pro, I am happy to help you with any continued work.
- If the term “SEO” makes you feel nervous, you can relax. I’ve got you covered. WordPress in conjunction with a hosting plan is very, very SEO friendly. I write content on my client websites with SEO in mind. There are always ways to improve SEO and new flowing content is one big one, but again, I am available at hourly or monthly subscription rates to keep that content pumping into your site and your SEO ratings high.
Web design perfectly balances my nerd alter-ego with my design background. I spent ten years after college working in the e-learning field, where I was part of many user group studies that looked at how people look for content, and I use all of that knowledge when deciding how a site is going to be laid out.
To keep my business and life balanced, I only accept limited web projects each month. If you are thinking about updating an old site, or starting a new one for a new business venture, I’d love to talk to you about the project to see if we would be a good fit.
