Your website should give a great first impression.
While your customers can get a lot of information from an optimized Google My Business listing, a Facebook page or a Yelp profile, a your website serves as your built-with-love digital storefront. You can make it exactly what you want it to be, and you can easily and efficiently guide people to the things they need. A great website gives a level of legitimacy and intentionality to a business, especially to customers who don’t know you. And for your existing customers, it provides more ways for them to get involved with you or share your business. And in 2020, it’s absolutely essential to have one. And if you’re going to have one, it might as well be good!
I design, build, strategize and optimize websites for small- and medium-sized businesses who take pride in serving their customers well. Many designers stick to the visual side of things, but my approach blends design, writing and user experience (UX) to give your customer/client an enjoyable and easy experience connecting with your business.
My Website Design Philosophy
- Your website should be a tool that works for you. Yes, it takes time (time, effort, money) up front to make that happen, but once you have a good foundation built, it should be a strong business driver.
- All websites should be easy to use and beautiful. Without both of these traits, your website user’s experience falls flat. Your website needs to be easy for you to use too, so I choose a platform based on each client’s individual needs.
- Modern, fully mobile-responsive, top-rated themes and page builders are a must when designing a website. This ensures everyone who lands on your site can quickly (and happily) get what they need.
- Technology is always changing. A great website is an ongoing project, but a good website designer should guide you through the process so you don’t have to spend hours reading blog posts and wondering if you’re doing the right things.
