My specialty is redesigning business web sites. I work one-on-one with small business owners like you who are ready to transform their old, outdated website into a brand new one… one that you will be proud to show off!
I do full and partial redesigns. Full redesigns are total transformations of a website whereas partial redesigns just involve redesigning specific parts of your website like only your blog, header design, or specific pages of your site.

What Makes A Good Business Web Site Design
It’s not one thing that instantly makes a web site design good. There are so many different elements — put together the correct way — that make a good web site.
Some important web site elements are plainly seen on the surface of the design, and others are hidden behind the scenes within the coding.
Just knowing that can be daunting for a business owner. But as my client, you don’t have to worry about those things… I have your back!
Below is an overview of my professional web design services.
The Platforms I Use
WordPress, Squarespace, and Site Build It! are the 3 main platforms I use to create a business website.
Knowing how to design on each of these different platforms and why one would work best for you over the other gives me the flexibility to suit your individual needs.
Don’t know which one you should choose? I’ll help you figure out which platform is best for you based on an assessment/consultation I do at the beginning of my design process.
Every good website needs a good foundation. You don’t want to start out on a platform that really isn’t meant for you.
You need a Content Management System (CMS) that has every feature you want or need.
A CMS is a platform you can build your website on, in order to make it easy for you to edit, maintain, and grow your website.
WordPress and Squarespace are the two main platforms most local businesses work best in. I suggest Site Build It! when you want to take your business nationally or globally.
What’s Included With Every Design
Anyone can create a website, but not everyone can set it up for success.
There are features your business website simply can’t be built without. Yes, features that actually help your website become an investment that will pay off.
Here’s a list items I always include in my web design services.
How do I communicate with you?
As we work together, all our communication will be virtual — primarily by email. And occasionally phone calls, and/or Skype will be used. I don’t do in-person, face-to-face meetings.
That’s because in comparison to face-to-face meetings, communicating virtually:
- Saves both of us time
- Saves both of us money
- Results in faster responses
- Speeds up the the web design process
- Documents what we’ve discussed, so that there are no misunderstandings
It’s a win-win situation for both of us. Because all of this means better communication and better customer service.
Before I start a redesign, I need to find out more about you and your business. To make this process easier, I have an online form you can fill out at your convenience. This will basically help me find out what you need to have done and learn general information about you.
Then, I will evaluate it and contact you by email or phone to let you know if I will be able to take on your project. I will then send you a more detailed questionnaire that will help me to determine the direction to go with your design and also come up with a quote.
Once you approve the quote and my terms of service, I will give you a start date and an anticipated finish date. The finish date can change based on how soon you can get your content together and how many changes you wish to make to proofs. Any delay in getting requested items to me will push the finish date further away.
