Website Design & Development is so much more than just creating a nice looking site. Your site has to deliver your message while ranking well in search engines to ensure you are moving towards accomplishing your online goals.
There are so many things that go into designing and developing a website that it can be overwhelming. My goal is to make the process as smooth as possible while delivering a website that you are proud of that helps your business thrive.
There are endless freelancers and agencies offering web design and development services. It is difficult to know which ones are reputable so I encourage you to check out my testimonials and view my portfolio to get a feel for some of the work I’ve done and what my clients think about working with me.

What to look for in a developer
Ensuring you work with an experienced developer is important. Having been through over 150 builds, I know the ins-and-outs of website design and development and can help guide you through the process efficiently and cost-effectively.
A designer or developer who is unwilling to provide a current portfolio is a red flag. Being able to review past projects helps you ensure you are working with someone who can get the job done.
Word of mouth is everything these days. Do your research and make sure your developer has solid testimonials. These could be Google Reviews, LinkedIn Recommendations, Yelp Reviews or website testimonials.
A developer without any SEO (Search Engine Optimization) knowledge can possibly do more harm than good when developing a site. Having at least a basic understanding of things like meta titles, meta descriptions, 301 redirects, content quality and proper heading structure can go a long way.
I’ve seen a few developer sites with messages that they are “so busy working on client sites that they can’t keep up with their own”. I don’t buy it. If you’re selling web development services, you should have a great looking website to show off what you can do!
Communication, in my opinion, is the most vital part of a website design and development project. Being able to give a clear vision of what you are looking for and in return receiving a clear layout of expectations, cost, roles and more will help make everyone’s job easier.
I enjoy partnering with Matt on WordPress projects for our clients. He is super responsive and timely and has a great philosophy on what clients can and should expect from WordPress developers/programmers. Matt makes good recommendations (but yet rolls with the punches when clients might override). He has assisted on website projects of all sizes for our team/clients and I look forward to continuing our partnership in the years to come.
