Small Business Website Development
Are you looking to improve your online footprint by updating your aging website? I’ve worked with hundreds of small businesses to improve their website and help improve search engine rankings.
Picking the right company to work with for your website development is an extremely important and difficult decision. Many times, your website is the first thing potential customers see and first impressions matter.
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. I would love to work with you.
I build Small Business websites that are…
What good is a website if a user can’t find what they need. Your website will be well thought-out ensuring your visitors can easily find what they are looking for.
Easy to Edit
You shouldn’t need to contact a developer for every little change on your website. I create easy-to-edit sites using the block editor, making changes simple for you and your team.
My finely-tuned process ensures your site will be lightning fast. From code and image optimization to a focus on using only high-quality plugins, I work extensively to provide the best performance possible for your site.
My focus on quality code and proper coding standards ensures your site will stand the test of time and function for years to come.
Small Business Website Development FAQs
My development process varies based on the type of project. Check out my development process page for more details on my development process.
I typically only take on full build projects or work on sites I’ve previously built, but I would be happy to take a look to see if I may be able to help you. Please contact me and maybe we’ll be a good fit to work together.
My typical development-only project is $5,000-10,000. If we will be working with my design partner to come up with a new design, this will typically add $5,000-$7,000 to the project. Bear in mind, these are ranges that will vary greatly based on the complexity and scope of your project.
Additionally, if you need custom copywriting, in-depth SEO or any other services, that will affect the price as well.
My typical build takes 2-3 weeks followed by 1-2 weeks of QA/testing. More complex project will extend that timeline. This also assumes timely communication.
If we are going through a full design prior to development, this will add 4-6 weeks to the process.
Start time will vary, but it is typically a 4-6 week lead time prior to project kickoff.
I have a custom starter theme I’ve build that is essentially a “blank canvas” to start each project from. This ensures your website is build specifically for your needs and doesn’t include any features you don’t need ensuring peak performance.
I use a number of plugins with nearly every build including:
- Advanced Custom Fields
- Gravity Forms
- WP Migrate DB Pro
- Yoast SEO
- WP Rocket
Some other plugins I use a lot include:
- WP Recipe Maker
For eCommerce sites I build with WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads.
I also include my own Core Functionality Plugin where I handle all non-theme functionality like Custom Post Types, Custom Taxonomies and more. That way should you ever need to change themes, you won’t lose that core functionality.
All of my sites are built with SEO in mind. This includes things like semantic markup, proper use of alt tags, ensuring the site is accessible, installing and doing basic setup of Yoast SEO.
I do not offer full SEO services like keyword research, writing meta description, writing copy or doing in-depth SEO. I would be happy to provide referrals if you’d like more in-depth SEO. Additionally, if you provide me with things like meta descriptions and custom title tags I am happy to get them in place for you during the build.
I do not offer copywriting services. You will be responsible for providing the content for your site or working with a copywriter. I can provide referrals if needed.
I don’t offer any design services but have a number of design partners I work with on a daily basis. My design partners are experts graphic design specifically for websites and will help guide us through the website design process using best practices.

Small Business Website Development Testimonials
Kevin EchemendiaOwner – Two Stories Media
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.
Mike JulianCEO – The Duckbill Group
Working with Matt was an excellent experience from the first exploratory conversation through getting our website launched. Matt is a great communicator, helpful educator, and had amazingly quick responses to every one of our (many) questions and requests. He was always looking for ways to improve our website and enhance the user experience. If you are looking for a web developer, do yourself a favor and connect with Matt.
