Just as every small business is different, so is every website.
I like to kick off every web design project by sitting down, getting to know you, and learning the ins and outs of your small business. We’ll talk about visuals, your hopes for what a new website will accomplish, any special functionality you’re looking for, and I’ll give you the full rundown on my design and development process.
We’ll combine your expert knowledge of your industry with my background in web design and digital marketing to build a unique, fully functional website that’s custom-tailored to your small business and audience.
New Website Design and Development
If you’re looking for a simple, content-driven website with features like a blog, calendar, or contact form, I’ll get you up and running on the content management system (CMS) WordPress. This tried-and-true platform will ensure that you can easily make basic updates yourself after we launch—of if you’d rather not DIY, we can set up an ongoing maintenance plan.
If you’re looking to start selling products or services online, I’ll get you up and running on the eCommerce framework Shopify. I’ll set up a payment terminal (usually using something like PayPal or Stripe), configure your tax and shipping info, and create an easy way for you to constantly add and update your store’s items, review your orders, and track your inventory.
Other Website Platforms
WordPress and Shopify are just a couple of the major web platforms out there, and they’re definitely not your only options. If you’re considering a few different platforms for your new website, let me know! I’ll help you evaluate your platform needs and can make some recommendations on what will work best for you. Other platforms I have experience with include BigCommerce, Drupal, Squarespace, Volusion, and Wix.
Every New Website Includes:
These days, you can expect visits to your website from just about any screen size: from a 27 inch computer monitor to a small Android phone. Responsive design ensures that your website is built to scale down to even the smallest of devices, without compromising the content or functionality.
Basic SEO Optimization
Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of optimizing your website so that search engines, and in turn people, are better able to find you and all of the content you have to offer. I ensure that every website I build is SEO-friendly, containing things like proper content hierarchy, link structure, keywords, and more.
Once your new website has been live for awhile, you’re probably going to eventually need to make some tweaks. Before we wrap up your project, I’ll provide the necessary training to ensure you’re feeling confident on the things you’ll be doing most frequently. We’ll cover things like editing page content, adding new images, entering blog posts, and more.
