Who are you trying to reach?
As you consider creating your online communications and image, ask yourself these questions:
WHO SHOULD I WORK WITH?
There are lots of web designers, developers, programmers and graphic designers out there. 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 the possibility of ending 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 for your service, work, business or art. My site development process is extremely transparent and you are involved 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 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 WILL BE YOUR (and MY) ROLE IN SITE DEVELOPMENT?
You provide as much or as little to start with as you like. Tell me what your core needs are. From there, I help determine what your site needs are. I propose site design options, an easy-to-navigate structure and then customize it; I use your copy, or write copy as needed; I use your photos, videos and graphics, or I search for stock photos, video and graphics; I size images so your site is web-friendly and doesn't bog down or look fuzzy; I link supplied articles, documents, video, maps and social networking to your site; I search engine optimize and mobilize and publish.
If there are additional needs for the site, I have an experienced, professional network offering original photography, video, image and video editing, graphic design, animators, specialty logo designers, and more.
Your input and feedback is welcomed during the entire process. We work together to get you the online presence that works for you.
I make sure that, starting with your website, your online communications looks professional, clean and clear, and your business, art and story is easy to find.
Also, I think hummingbirds are really cute.
