I know that shopping for a website developer, and having a website built, can be a painstaking process.
It’s typically not as easy as buying a computer or software, where the pricing and details are all spelled out. After building and selling custom websites for twenty years, I decided to take what I had learned and make the process easier. Here’s what I came up with:
1. Clean, uncluttered design.
The designs I offer draw on years of experience to provide my clients with a clean, appealing, easy-to-use website. My designs create a balance between form and function that will provide your customers all the information they need, while giving them a positive impression of your business.
2. A Semi-Custom Process that allows for lower cost website development.
The semi-custom approach allows you to choose a starting design layout that works for your business and suits your design tastes. Choosing the design layout up front gives you more control over how your website will look when it’s finished. It also removes the problem of not knowing what the designer will create after you’ve committed time and money to the project.
3. Quality service pricing.
My pricing structure is set to ensure a high level of quality and service throughout the website development process. Over the years I’ve learned that modest pricing meant that I was stretched too thin, with too many projects, and I decided that I could best serve fewer clients with prices set closer to what my bigger business competitors charge. However I do something many of my bigger business competitors don’t; I spread my website development fee over 12 monthly payments, so it can easily work within your monthly budget.
4. WordPress for content management.
WordPress is the largest self-hosted blogging tool and content management system (CMS) in the world. Because of its easy to use interface and rock solid coding, it powers around 29% of the websites online.
WordPress makes it easy for you, or your staff, to update the content on your website without having to understand web design or website development. Once I build the website you'll have the ability to edit the text or add new pages. Of course I can handle all content updates if you choose not to do it internally.
5. Personal service and ongoing maintenance.
It is very important to me that each client gets the personal service they deserve. You will deal directly with me throughout your website project, and I will work hard to make sure you’re well taken care of and completely satisfied with every step of the process. I prefer running a small design service where I can work directly with my clients throughout each part of the process.
6. Website portability.
It’s often hard to move your website once it’s been built, not because web developers want to keep you captive, but because of logistical problems inherent with moving websites. I set out to solve this problem in order to make the buying process easier and less stressful for my prospective clients. It’s always easier to enter a transaction if you know the long-term commitment is not completely binding.
Although setting up a way for my clients to easily leave seems counter-productive, I saw it as a priority when looking at the options from my clients perspective.
7. Attention to detail.
One of the issues I’ve worked to overcome is the complexity of building high quality WordPress websites. I’ve created a 68 point checklist to ensure uniformity for all the sites I build. The checklist makes sure that no single important feature or security measure is left out.
My goal is to provide you with everything you need to make an informed, comfortable, buying decision. To learn more about what I offer please check out my Frequently Asked Questions page or give me a call at 706-338-1464 and let me personally answer your questions.
