Helping people is something that I’ve always strived to do.

Whether it’s helping someone find their way around town, give someone a boost with whatever they are working on or just be a listening ear for someone, helping people accomplish their goals is something that I innately love to do.

Now, in this digital age, it’s transformed into helping people get their business, their organizations or even themselves online with a great website so that others can find them.

I love that moment when I hand the keys of a website over to someone and show them how to use it and they realize the power they now have. No matter how big or small the website is, hearing how this website will help them or hearing from former clients about how this website is currently helping them is why I do what I do.

Those are the moments that I honestly live for. To be a friend they can work with to give them, their business or their organization a digital boost.

And in the end, I want to be a friend that can help you with your website.

How I Do It

  • WordPress – I use WordPress as my content management system of choice. It’s free and open source, which means it’s completely customizable to fit whatever project I’m building. And for you that means a great user experience for all of your content needs, from adding and managing pages to creating blog posts to even managing an online store through your website.
  • Accessibility – Everyone needs to be able to use your website no matter what technology they might use to browse your website. And, to be honest, it does take a lot to make sure a website is accessible. But I build everything with accessibility in mind. It’s always a consideration, and I take the time to make sure everything is accessible. That means you don’t have to worry about the accessibility of your website and everyone can use your amazing website.
  • SEO – Search Engine Optimization is massive in today’s online world if you want to get found in search results. Now, I am not an SEO expert. You’ll need to find a dedicated SEO to help you with that fully. But I make sure that everything I create is built with SEO in mind so that it helps, not hurts, your SEO efforts.
  • Security – Security is a big concern for websites no matter how big or small. Unfortunately there are people out there who would love nothing more than to ruin your website. But every site I build has security in mind, from locking down who can access your login page to stopping brute force attacks to keeping your data secure. You won’t have anything to worry about with your site’s security.
  • Performance – Websites need to load quickly to keep people on the site. I take the time on every website to make sure that the site is loading as quickly as possible and hitting all of the Google PageSpeed Insights benchmarks. From using the best practices to teaching you how to keep your website quick, you won’t have to fret about your website’s performance.
  • User-centric – At the end of the day, it’s not about me. It’s about you and your website. So I do my best to keep both your experience with your website as well as your website’s user’s experience in mind as I build the site. At the end of the day, you’re going to get a website that’s easy for you to manage without having to ask a lot of questions and the site will be easy for your users to navigate.
  • Training– You won’t just get a website dumped in your lap and then be left in the dust by the developer. Each website includes personal training on how to manage your website once it’s launched. This could be a recorded screen share that you can refer back to whenever you want or a live training. And you will always be welcome to ask any questions you have. At the end of the day, my goal is to help you build and manage a website that helps you, your business and/or your organization.
