I have built a plethora — yea, a plethora! — of websites for over a decade now using many different methods.
My favorite software I both use and recommend, and am qualified to be called a “super-geek” in, is WordPress. It’s amazing stuff (the self-hosted .org stuff, not the .com stuff)! However, there are exceptions, depending on your needs (such as e-commerce), that might call for other platforms such as Magento, Squarespace, or the many others out there.
Having been a start-up business owner (a few times) and a blogger for 12+ years, I will happily serve as a consultant and will always point you in the direction of what will (1) cost you the least amount of money yet (2) remain “future proof” given your business plans and technical capabilities to update and maintain your own website.
Also, be sure that I never build a website that doesn’t look good on every device that it can be viewed on.
So Let’s Make Something Together!
I base costs on the scope of the project and the many, many factors and people that come into play when developing a website. The best thing we could do is have a quick phone call or email exchange and begin the conversation about your project. What I can guarantee you is that you’ll find quickly I’m all about transparency as well as teaching you as much as you want to know about your options in the process.
If you’re interested in working together, go ahead and get in touch through the Contact page.
*I’m currently quite busy taking some classes and learning more advanced programming languages for future possibilities such as application development. Therefore, I’m doing very little “client” work, but I’m super flexible and am always open to possibilities! So it’s worth checking if you want to work with me!
View A Few Past Projects
I obviously cannot (or just don’t want to) post every site I’ve built, so here is a variety of samples of a few favorite projects.
Please note that they were all looking and functioning well when I finished/linked them here but I can’t guarantee what they may look like on the day you click the link since I do not actively maintain some of these.
Galleries coming soon!
This is a pet project of mine which is a multi-user membership site with multi-author blogging, portfolios, and other content streams, and a fully functions e-commerce shop.
The largest site I’ve ever worked on, I revamped this entire site theme and structure, incorporating newer modern design, a better presentation of information and services, and much more. This site uses Magento software for a very large e-commerce catalog with a custom checkout / price quote process. We also merged a hybrid Magento and WordPress blog into it. Magento is not my platform of choice, and I’d rarely recommend it for anyone unless you’re an enterprise or something with a gigantic catalog. However, if you’re already using it or think you need to, it’s a possibility with its own perks.
This site was a mess when I was given the job. I jumped in and re-organized their pages and content, helped them plan out the architecture of the site, and helped them choose and create a fitting theme for their information and all they needed to display. They now have everything you could ever want in a site, including the ability to flip a switch and have e-commerce capabilities when they choose in the days ahead.
All the same capabilities as the previous, except we built and planned from the ground up in every way.
Once a full functioning website, now in development, this is nothing but an interactive landing page that collects emails and simply gives people some information.
Very similar to above. No extra pages. No extra frills. Super simple. Making this would take me less than a day, but you can be building behind the scenes then!
This steps it up to a super clean, responsive site with just a few pages, a blog, some contact forms, etc. Built on WordPress software so the cost of making and cost of maintaining this is very low.
This is similar to the above except built upon Squarespace software. This now costs more to maintain with a monthly fee but provides simple secure e-commerce capabilities.
As stated before, this is only a small sampling of site I’ve created. If you don’t see something similar to what you want, then know this: basically, if you can imagine it, we can make it happen. If you have any other ideas or questions, or have something in mind that you’d like to brainstorm, just shoot me a message and we can either email about it or schedule a call to really dig in.
