Storytelling on the web for small businesses involves a lot. You need a clean, clear website with all of the important information (i.e. location, business hours, contact info, etc.). You need clear and compelling copy, photos and potentially video to convince people that your business can help them with whatever they need. You’ll need to make sure that the site stays up and running and updated to protect against security threats. And sometimes you’ll need something changed or fixed on your website.
It’s a lot. But I can help you take care of each of these things. Storytelling is my passion and I love helping small businesses tell their story online — whether it’s through a website, a text story, photos or videos. And I would love to help your business accomplish the same things online.
Here are some of the ways I can help you tell the story of your business.
Small Business Websites
If you have a business, you have to have a website to go with it. With more and more people finding places and shopping online, if you’re not online, you basically don’t exist. And having a nice clean, readable website with the pertinent information is the baseline for any new website.
But a website is more than just a place to list your name, address and business hours. It’s a place to tell your story. Here, you control the narrative. You can tell the story of why you started the business. You can share success stories of customers you’ve helped. And any marketing efforts will come right back around to your website.
A website is how you tell the story of your business to the world. I would love to help you find the best way to tell your story. From a guide that lays out all of the steps of the process no matter what developer you work with to finding the right solution, I can help you build the best website for your business.

WordPress websites need a lot of care in order to work for your business. There are security concerns, updates to make and a lot more. But those things take time. And that’s time that’s taken away from you running your business.

A website is a great tool to tell your story, but the content is the real meat and potatoes to telling your story to a wider audience. A pretty website with cool animations means nothing if your text and other content is lacks a way to grab a reader and, even worse, is just flat out wrong. But you can avoid these problems by creating exciting and informative content.
The web offers a multitude of ways to convey a story, from a regular text story to photo and video stories, or even a combination of all three. Storytelling is my passion, and I love using all three mediums to tell stories of others on the web. And I would love to help tell yours through those mediums.
So whether you need some copywriting to spice up your site or want to tell a story through text, photos and/or video, devise a plan to spruce up your content to tell your story.

Sometimes you need to change something out on your website, but it requires code and time that you don’t have. Other times you have a really good idea for some sort of web project, but don’t know how to make it actually happen in the code. That’s okay. I can help you do either one of those things.I can take the stress of the workload away from you and give you quality work with peace of mind. And you’ll come away with a really cool product that helps tell a story.
