About Whiteley Designs

I’m Matt and I am a Lancaster, Pennsylvania based website developer who has been building bespoke WordPress websites for over 10 years. It all started with a Groupon-clone site back in 2008 and has slowly grown into a thriving business doing what I love.

Read below to learn more about what I offer. I encourage you to read some of my reviews, check out past projects, and learn more about my development process.

My Core Values

Investing in a new website is a big (and expensive) decision. Picking the right person to work with is extremely important. I take pride in the relationships I’ve built with my clients over the years. I am not looking for a one-and-done project. I am looking to create a lasting, mutually beneficial relationship. Below are just a few of my core values.

Communication


I pride myself on clear, concise and timely communication. I will respond to your inquiries, big or small, in a timely manner in the clearest way possible. I know many times I speak a different language than you, so I will explain things as simple as possible and many times provide screen-share videos to accompany my response.

Quality


There is a reason I won’t be the cheapest quote you get, and that reason is quality. I have worked hard to create systems that allow me to create websites that are lean and mean. With quality-code, well thought-out site structure and quality plugins my websites load fast and stand the test of time.

Relationships


When I work with a client I am always thinking about the long-term. I don’t want to create a website and hand-it-off. I want to create a long-lasting relationship to ensure your website performs for you. From website hosting and maintenance to performance optimization, I hope to earn your long-term business. That, and I’m pretty cool and fun to work with.
