Small Business Website Development

Is your business looking to increase your online footprint, update your ageing website and generate more leads? I just may be the perfect fit! I’ve developed over 100 websites, most of them for small businesses just like you.

Picking the right company to work on your new site is a very important decision. Your website speaks volumes about your company and brand and it needs to be built to reflect that. I will work with your company to ensure all aspects of your website are covered.

I encourage you to check out some of my testimonials and even reach out to me if you’d like to speak with some of my previous small business clients.

Benefits of working with me

Timely
Communication

I pride myself in providing clear, concise and timely communication. Whether it is responding to generic emails, support questions or communication during a website build I strive to respond in a timely manner (usually within an hour) so we can all keep things moving.

Fast
Turnaround

Running a lean ship as I do, I can typically turn a project around in under 12 weeks (typically less). Development time is typically 2-3 weeks once I have designs and based on my schedule I can usually get a project on my calendar within 6-8 weeks.

Reasonable
Pricing

While website pricing can vary dramatically my typical agency websites fall in the $3,000 – $6,000 range. This leaves your agency plenty of room to turn a good profit and offer your clients an affordable, yet quality website that they will be proud of.

Quality
Code

An often under-appreciated and overlooked aspect of a website is the quality of the underlying code. I take pride is creating websites with clean, well-commented, efficient code using best practices. This helps ensure longevity of a website, great performance, and ease of maintenance and future-proofing.

Innovative
Solutions

I love when my clients come to me with a problem that I can help them solve. These unique requests give me the opportunity to use my experience to provide an easy-to-use solution for the end user. With WordPress nearly anything is possible, and I love bringing ideas to life.

Lasting
Relationships

I am not looking to build a site and disappear. I value long client relationships. When you are on a website care plan, hosting with me, or simple touch base from time to time to catch up or get other small jobs done, I look forward to creating a long-lasting relationship.

Thorough
Development

I make sure your site is responsive (mobile-friendly), SEO friendly, images are optimized for performance, sitemaps are submitted to search engines, proper URL redirects are in place and more to ensure things are done the right way.

Easy Site
Updates

Crafting sites with clean code and using only premium plugins makes all of my sites easy to keep up-to-date. This allows you to easily manage your website without the constant worry of updates breaking or crashing the site.

A Great
Experience

I’d like to think that all website projects go smoothly, but that simply isn’t the case. I work hard to make sure the process goes as smoothly as possible. Creating an amazing site is one thing, but helping make the process as simple, and pleasant as possible is important.

Mike Julian - The Duckbill Group

Through several recommendations from colleagues, I hired Matt to take a website design we had in Sketch and make it a reality. We had a short timeline and Matt was able to deliver ahead of schedule–and it looked GREAT. Communication-wise, he’s wonderful to work with–I particularly loved the daily video updates he sent us as he progressed. I’d certainly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a solid WordPress developer.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your development process like?

I’ve created a six-step development process to keep things organized and efficient. Open communication, proper planning and transparency make each project as smooth as possible.

I already have a site. Can you make some quick changes to it?

I am currently only taking on full website build projects. Working on to of other developer’s code, especially if it is dated, is difficult and not something I am currently doing. I would be happy to refer you to someone in my network if you’d like..

How much do full website projects cost?

Again, it depends. Prices can range from $2,500 to $10,000+ depending on the full scope of your project. Typically projects fall in the $3,000-$6,000 range. I’d be happy to discuss your needs and give you an estimate.

How long will it take to build my site?

There are a few factors that come into play here including the scope of the project, how quickly you can provide the assets needed for the site, if the assets are provided in an organized and web-ready manner and the speed in which you communicate. Typically sites take 4-6 weeks, but if communication is slow, or if I am waiting on assets from you, it can slow down the process considerably.

What plugins/themes do you typically use for your sites?

I use the Genesis Framework for all of my sites with my own Base Child Theme as a starting point. The Genesis Framework provides the backbone and my Base Child Theme is a blank canvas ready for customization.

My go-to plugins include Advanced Custom Fields & Gravity Forms. They are included in 100% of my builds unless the client has another form preference. Other plugins I typically use include WooCommerce, Simple 301 Redirects, Easy Digital Downloads, Genesis Simple Share, WP Migrate DB Pro, Yoast SEO, Akismet, AffiliateWP, User Switching, WP Featherlight and WP Smush.

I also include my own Core Functionality Plugin where I handle all non-theme functionality like Custom Post Types, Shortcodes and taxonomies. That way should you ever need to change themes, you won’t lose that core functionality.

Do you offer graphic design services?

I don’t personally offer graphic design services but work with a number of talented designers on a daily basis. My design team will handle any graphic design needs (website design, logos, graphics). While I am fluent in the Adobe Suite I focus my time on development.

Alyssa Gay Consulting

I’ve worked with a number of other website designers who left me and my clients more than disappointed. Enter Matt. No words are adequate enough to describe Matt’s expertise & the pleasure it was to work with him. He recently completed a website build for my company and worked with me from conception to completion to ensure that everything was perfect. He was able to create custom functionality, all while still creating a beautiful site. I also cannot get over just how prompt he is with making revisions and getting in touch with you throughout the process. Matt is definitely my go-to for all things website. I highly recommend him for whatever you may need, whether that’s a new site entirely, a site audit, or hosting! You will not be disappointed.
