I Bring More Visitors To Your Site By Improving Your Ranking In Search Engines And Building Your Online Presence. Then I Convent More Of Those Visitors Into Customers By Improving Your Sites Usability.

Marketing and Branding

Brand Identity : I believe that your brand and identity is a key driver of your small business’ perception, so I mix creative graphic design skills, marketing strategy and analytical mobile web-code to produce branding and identity that is both purposeful and unforgettable. These assets will make your small business stand out with ads, event posters and business cards that are attractive to your audience.

A Unified Design : It’s been proven time and time again… and it doesn’t always have to make sense (IE: Starbucks Logo), but people love a unified design and seeing a lot of it. Nothing takes your business to the next level like spending a small amount making it look completely professional. It just adds polish to the final result of your new branding. It could be T-Shirts for employees (which can also be sold) – or just stationary for yourself. But it adds a polish that many small businesses simply don’t have. All you have to do is point me in a direction, and I’ll build a brand awareness that will take your small business to the next level.

Full Service Security

Daily Backups : You can rest assured that your website will be backed up at all times.  I back up each site once a day at 1:00AM EST to cloud storage automatically and if you decide you no longer require my services, you will not only receive your domain back with no issues (I will never own your domain in any way) – but you will also receive a fully cloned backup of your website for migration.

Fluid Optimization : Adding your Site to my content delivery system, image loading times are lowered by 55%.  Allowing your website to open much faster than hosting it yourself.  Also, I Consistently optimize the database as well as updating all the plugins the day they’re released.  Always keeping your site up to date and fast as can be.  All the images are optimized to show the best value, while being the lowest size for website load.

Responsive Design

The websites I build are slightly different from the site you currently own, or sites others are making now. These websites automatically scale to the device. So it looks great on any device; whether it’s a iOS, Amazon or Android phone – or a Mac or PC. Anything.

It’s not just about having a website today, it’s about having a website that looks great on a computer, tablet or mobile device all at once. To do this, you want a developer who’s a specialist in getting that together for you.
