Web Design for Small Businesses
Your business needs a website that loads fast, looks clean and professional, and is accessible to all. That’s the kind of site I build. I strive to deeply understand the needs of your business to deliver a tool that’s not just a flat, passive online brochure– it’s a dynamic, persuasive platform to drive your business forward to where you want to be.
Your time is too valuable to keep struggling with a website that isn’t working.
Your business needs a website that attracts customers, strengthens your brand, and streamlines your business online– all on a small business budget.

How to get started
If you’re wondering where to begin, you’re not alone. It’s easier to take the first step when you know what the whole process will look like.
Here’s what will happen after you fill out your quote request form.
On the phone or in a videoconference, we discuss the needs, challenges, and goals of your business and how your new or redesigned website can help.
Scope of Work & Agreement
After the call, I write up a detailed scope of agreement to be sure that we are on the same page about what the project looks like, how long it will take, and a firm quote on how much it will cost. If it looks good to you, we’ll both sign and after the deposit is paid, your project can get started.
If you need to get found on the web, quality content is critical. If the project scope includes content gathering & editing, you’ll be able to easily provide the content by answering questions about your business, and using fill-in-the-blanks style forms and other helpful methods for getting all the content we need.
Look & feel development
I create a style guide, which represents the visual aspects of your website and ensures that your branding is consistent throughout your marketing– both online and offline. Rather than mock up every page, it conveys the look and feel by nailing down your fonts, branded colors, style of photography or illustration, and use of whitespace.
Building the website
I will develop the site and populate all content. After it’s ready, I’ll present it to you and get specific feedback and notes through a guided review process.
Once you sign off on the final product, it’s time to launch! I will install your website your web host and your site is ready to go live. I’ll hand off all the info you need to take ownership of the site (even if you engage my services for ongoing care of the site).
Let’s chat about your website.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you charge for websites?
Even though cost isn’t the only factor you’ll consider, I know that getting a good value is vital for small business owners. So you should know that your website’s cost will depend on things like:
- how many different pages or types of pages need to be developed
- whether you want to sell goods or services right from your site
- what custom functionality is involved
- how much content needs to be created or repurposed for the web.

How long will it take to build my website?
Typically, websites take between 6-10 weeks. How long your website will take to develop depends on factors like how many different pages or types of pages need to be developed, how much custom functionality needs to be developed, and on the readiness of your text and image content.
