WordPress Designer & Developer
Four ways to tell if I’m the right fit for your web design project
When I build a website, I don’t just deliver it and walk away– I build long term relationships with my clients and their businesses. So it’s important that our values align! Here are four core values that shape the way I work.
1. I value integrity & honesty
Integrity & honesty are central to every interaction, from our first conversation to delivery of completed work. I’m honest about what I can and will deliver, and how long it will take. If we are not a good fit, I’ll do my best to refer you to someone whose work I know– I’ll never take your valuable investment and under-deliver.
2. I value clear communication
My clients frequently remark how much better they feel about their ideas and goals after our first conversation.
Even though you and I may use different vocabulary when it comes to your website (with techie stuff, it’s hard to avoid), I’ll always do my best do bring you clarity with clear examples, video screen recordings, and training sessions so you can feel confident about the digital marketing tools that can take your business to the next level.
3. I prioritize the long-term good
Some developers make their living by building cheap sites quickly, cutting ties, and moving on to the next before the new-site shine wears off. Later, when the site needs updates and things are starting to break, they’re nowhere to be found.
That’s not me. In fact, I stand behind my work so much that I offer ongoing web support to ensure that your website will always be working to meet and exceed your business goals. That way, no matter what changes come to your business or to the tech your site is built with, you don’t have to worry about being left behind or your investment losing its value.
Your website will be built to high standards. I create websites with:
- High quality premium plugins
- Completely custom, lightweight themes
- Coded the WordPress way
4. I value freedom
I work with WordPress because it is open source software. That means it’s free, which is great, but more importantly it means that unlike a subscription-based platform like Shopify, Squarespace, or other website builders, you actually own and control your own stuff.
Everything about your site, functionality, appearance, eCommerce, search engine optimization– I can customize for you.
And because it’s WordPress, you as a website owner have freedom to make changes without learning to code. That’s why I reach for WordPress more often than a static HTML + CSS website, although I can build using that if it’s the right choice for you.
Because WordPress is so popular, you have many options when it comes to who works on your site. With countless tutorials, you can even work on your site yourself. You won’t be locked out of what you own.
All the above values are more important to me than making a sale. That’s my promise to you.
If these things are important to you, too, we might be a good fit to work together.
What I do
I make getting a great website hassle-free.
You’re probably reading this “About” page because you know that there’s so many web designers to choose from and it can be hard to tell the good from the bad.
I’m here to make the process easier and stress-free.
For a truly successful website that will grow your business– and grow WITH your business, too– you need someone who knows how to make a website that:
- load quickly
- presents your content in a compelling, persuasive way
- works well on any device your customers are using (from mobile phones to giant desktop screens)
- follows best security practices
- is search-engine friendly
- creates customer trust with a professional design.
It’s actually pretty hard to get all those skills in one place, but that’s what I do. I’ve been practicing those fundamentals for almost 20 years, and keeping up with best practices as they evolve in the meantime.Get started on your website
