As you consider creating an online image for your business or your art, ask yourself these questions:
WHO SHOULD I WORK WITH?
There are lots of web designers, developers, programmers and graphic designers out there, but for most individuals and small businesses, that's more horsepower and expense than is necessary. On the other hand, if you're waiting for that tech savvy friend or family member to help you, then get in line behind their social schedules, work and school, and then possibly end up with something that is less than professional or a site that can't be found.
A clean, clear online presence is fundamental. We work together using a one-on-one process to tell your unique story and develop a site featuring your work, business or art. The site development process is extremely transparent and nearly realtime.
WHAT FEATURES WILL MY VISITORS WANT?
Each site is as individual as you, your business, service or art. Your potential customers have different needs too. Should you blog? Have an online store? Use PayPal? Include social media? Embed external services like bookings or calendars? Be mobilized so your site is viewable on iPads, iPhones or Androids? Create a members / customers-only section? Any feature is possible.
WHAT DOES MY WEBSITE NEED?
Every site needs a framework (architecture/hierarchy), a place to live (host), and a unique online address (domain name). It needs to be easy to find (SEO or search-engine ready) and offer clear content (text), images such as photos, videos, graphs and links (clickable buttons) so site visitors can easily contact you.
WHAT IS YOUR (MY) ROLE?
I help you determine what your site needs are, explore design options, customize it, then create an easy to navigate structure; write copy as needed; find original or stock photos, video and graphics; Also digitize and size images you supply so your site is web-friendly and doesn't bog down or look fuzzy; link articles, documents, maps and other information; mobilize and publish. If the need arises, I have an affordable, professional network offering original photography, video, editing, graphics, animation, specialty design needs, and more.
I make sure that, starting with your website, your online communications looks professional, clean and clear, and your business, art or story is easy to find. Also, I think hummingbirds are really cute.
