Welcome and thank you for the visit-
I approach every site with one question in mind:
What can we do to make your site contribute to your business or cause?
I then work from your ideas and suggest features and ways to realize those goals.
This task requires more than just a web designer; you need someone who understands the big picture online and has a keen drive to compete; someone who not only understands the technology, but someone who understands what motivates online users to act.
In addition to experience in web programming, your design person should have expertise in usability, quality content creation, search engines, web graphics, photography and accessibility, along with the professionalism required to make timely changes and adjustments. Further knowledge of how marketing in the online medium differs from print or TV is also a prerequisite to creating a website that's effective.
I typically design websites utilizing the free, open-source CMS platform called Joomla. I chose this system because it combines ease of use along with a professional dynamic extension network that seldom lets you down. I tried others (Wordpress, Drupal), but they we're either too complicated for my clients to use, or the developer aftermarket was flaky and undependable. After your site is setup, I encourage self participation and will train you to take over running your site- you need not ever pay for site maintenance again. And, if you do run into problems, I'm just a phone call away.
Please read the article that defines my approach to site construction. Besides being a good introduction, you\'ll be made aware of the mechanics involved in making sure your online project is a success.
