New Website

What's in the box?

These are standard features on all my sites.

Content

Home, portfolio, samples, services, pricing, about us, blog, calendar, FAQ – the options are limitless.

Buy now, newsletter sign-up, learn more — let’s get your viewers clicking buttons.

Show everyone where to find you.

Your colleagues love you!  Let’s make sure your clients know it.

You get one email address included per site.  More addresses are available for a fee.

This could be a separate page or a popup, whichever you prefer.

And a customized search results page to match your theme.

Air Table, Calendly, FareHarbor, Google Maps, Mailchimp, YouTube, Vimeo, WPForms.  These are just a few of the third-party apps I’ve integrated into my sites. 

We’ll use your media if you have it, or we can choose professional images and video from my Shutterstock subscription. 

Design

I do not build sites from pre-designed templates.  I start with a blank page so every one is unique and reflects the person / org who commissions it.

Your site will match your existing corporate identity in font, color, and style.

It should be simple to find what you’re looking for on a website.  Navigation should be intuitive, and flow in a logical order.  Let’s not hide things.  

Works on all devices: desktop, tablet, and mobile.  I use the Elementor Pro page builder so your site looks great for everyone.

I build sites using accessibility best practices so visitors of all abilities can use them with ease.

Software & tech-y stuff

My preferred software.  Open-source, ever-evolving.

On every page, I’ll assign a focus keyphrase, meta description, featured image, and social media title and description.

Your images and videos will be optimized using Adobe Creative Suite so they’ll load quickly and look great.

I install SiteGround’s speed optimization and caching tools so your site runs fast, fast, fast.

I use the best environmental practices I can find so my sites have a small carbon footprint.

Your site is backed up by SiteGround and on UpdraftPlus.  When the web gremlins bite us, we’ll bite right back.
