web design and development service
Affordable Web Design for Small Businesses
Your business needs a professional website that looks great, loads fast, and makes you money. That’s the kind of custom website I build.
Your time is too valuable to keep struggling with a website that isn’t getting results.
Your business needs a website that gets increased web traffic, strengthens your brand, and generates leads online 24/7/365– all on a small business budget.
Your business doesn’t just need to get web traffic: you want to attract and persuade ideal customers. That means that every part of your website needs to focus on your customers, answer their questions, overcome any objections, and be your best salesperson– 24/7.
mobile responsive design
Standing out from a crowded market with a website that looks great and works smoothly on all types of devices– today, a majority of website visitors are using mobile devices and touchscreens. Your website needs to cater to their needs.
Effective search engine optimization
Having a great website won’t do any good unless it gets visitors. Ranking highly in search results doesn’t happen by accident– it takes experience and dedication. I’ll help you form and implement a solid SEO strategy to grow your online presence.
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 contact me for a quote.
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, brand colors, and general style.
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 offer a free trial of my website care plan, so if there are questions or post-launch minor tweaks and additions, I’ll be there.
Just like any software, your website will need updates and maintenance. Your business will grow and evolve too, so it’s important that your website reflect that! I offer a free trial of my Website Care Plan with every new build.
Frequently Asked Questions

- 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.

Typically, websites take between 6-12 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.
