New Website Design

One of the key factors in enhancing the success and allure of any business is for them to have a professional-looking website that is engaging, informative, mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate.

    • Ecommerce/Online Stores

    • Brick and mortar stores

Help with your Existing Website

About Me

I worked for over 35 years as an IT professional in every imaginable capacity for major consumer product and banking companies in New York City. In the Summer of 2021, I heard the mountains calling, turned in my resignation and moved to Denver.

Now, semi-retired and enjoying the outdoors and slower pace, I still have a passion for application development and want to continue to put my skills and experience to use by building high-quality websites for small businesses.

I have considerable experience working with many of the major WordPress themes, Page Builders and Plugins including: Elementor, Beaver Builder, ACF, WooCommerce, Yoast SEO, WP Rocket, Jetpack, etc.

Additionally, I am skilled in the Core WP technologies including PHP, JS, JQuery, and CSS which provides a much greater level of customization and performance to your site beyond the limits of WordPress alone.

Why do you need a website?

81% of people research a business or service on the internet prior to making a purchase decision.

Having your own website is a necessity to create your online presence and increase you visibility. 

One of the key factors in enhancing the success and allure of any business is for them to have a professional-looking website that is engaging, informative, responsive, and easy to navigate. A high-quality website acts as the ‘digital face’ of your business and is by far the most cost-effective means of marketing and providing an edge of your competitors.

What I will provide

Whether you have a specific design completed or only a rough idea and need help elaborating the details, I’ll work with you to define the goals and objectives of your website, how best to reach your target market and how to engage people with your site.

After getting to know you and your business from an in-depth discovery session, together we will look at what is doing well and what needs to be worked on to reach your business goals now and in the future.

Your new website will be unique, built to your needs and a perfect fit for your business. It will be built to be easy to navigate, intuitive and responsive to look and function well on any device.

Need help with your current website?

Is your existing WordPress site creating constant issues? Is your site a jumbled mess of WordPress plugins? Is your site running incredibly slow and suffering in search engine rankings? The problem likely isn’t WordPress. Your WordPress website is more than likely just built incorrectly.

I’m happy to work with you to rebuild your site the correct way in WordPress, even starting from scratch, if necessary. We can work to eliminate unnecessary plugins, fix problem areas in your WordPress installation, optimize assets & overall live site load time and more.

When reviewing your existing site, I’m happy to make suggestions if I see ways your site can be improved. Whether that’s better optimizing for search engines, correcting ADA compliance issues, User Interface (UI) suggestions, adding new functionality or integrations, and more.

Search Engine Optimization

Organic search can be your most powerful customer acquisition channel. The top Google results earns 37% of the searchers click. The second listing drops to 15% and after the first page traffic is almost non-existent. Therefore, a strong organic search engine strategy is a must for any successful business.

Ask yourself, do you want your competitors getting more leads from placing just one position above yours? Or even worse you are not visible in any search results key to your business.

SEO can pay big dividends − over time. When done effectively, SEO will drive organic traffic to your website and increase your ROI on a sustainable level. However, SEO requires a long-term outlook, and must be cared for in alignment with other marketing strategies at the same time.
