Specializing in small business website and web marketing services

Web Design and Development

Web design is more than a pretty layout that flashes hints of artistic genius. User experience is critical. That includes a smart layout, relevant content, and a reliable framework to support it all.


Good copy keeps the visitor entertained as well informed. It communicates in the voice of the company providing the service, product, or information and is rich with well-considered keywords. It makes them leave with what you want them to have or with a desire to come back to learn more about you or your product.

CMS Customization

It's not uncommon for me to be amazed by a brilliantly designed website idea. It's not uncommon for the creators of brilliantly designed website ideas to need a hand turning those brilliant designs into a functional website that they are empowered to edit, themselves.

Whether you're a creative looking for ways to showcase your work/turn your hobby into an income, a small business just starting out (or trying to break away from the chaotic options and updates from any of the build-your-own website businesses), or a design shop looking to outsource some work, I've probably done it before.

With so many options to establish a presence on the internet, why would you need to hire someone to help?

Website Business Vocabulary/Lingo
When approaching the task of starting a website, there are numerous opportunities to become either confused or intimidated by the language involved in the website business.
