I’ll help you choose the right technology.
There are lots of ways to get yourself a new website. But choosing the right one—the one that fits your needs, your style, and your budget—can be a challenge. Whether you’re a do-it-yourselfer or you’d just like a geek to build you a great new website so you can get on with your business, I can help you.
Even in this age of push-button everything, I prefer to build websites from scratch. Hand-coding may sound old-fashioned, but it provides me the flexibility to build you a website that fits your style perfectly AND renders quickly and accurately in every browser, on every computer: old ones and new ones, PCs, Macs, and the latest tablets.
...smartphones? ...mobile first? ...responsive design?
Glad you brought that up. If it seems as if everybody is browsing the web on their smartphones, that's because it's true. It's what all the cool kids are doing.
The cool web developers are building responsive websites that -- with a single code framework and a clever set of style rules -- adapt themselves to the device that's in your hands right now. That's one more thing that I can do for you.
Want to keep that snappy new website up to date all by yourself?
I’ll integrate my hand-crafted code with a content management system that lets you do what you want:
- update the text and images on every page
- add new pages and move things around
- post articles to a blog
- keep an online calendar
- build a mailing list and keep your subscribers interested
Hand-crafted code? Content management system? Responsive design?
Won’t all that be expensive?
Actually, it’s surprisingly affordable. My low-overhead, small-scale approach to web design lets me do more for you at a lower cost than most web developers. Delivering on time and within budget are important parts of my Simply Effective mantra.
And for my most budget-conscious clients I can offer an even less-expensive approach: WordPress. Although WordPress was developed as a way to get a simple blog online quickly, I’ve learned how to coax WordPress to do much much more. Using WordPress, I can deliver a full-featured website in a great big hurry, and I can teach you to update it yourself!
Whatever your budget, I’ll help you choose the right technology with which to build a simple, effective website.
