Some design companies contract their work out to cheap design services and turn around and charge you full price.  Then when something fails they don’t know how to fix it.  I don’t do that.  I make my designs compatible in all major browsers –  IE7, IE8, FF, Chrome, Safari and Opera.  If you have something you want incorporated into your site let me know. 

I have monthly hosting service available on my server for $6.00 per month for small business and personal sites.  There is no large up-front fee and I will bill you monthly.  If you decide you want to migrate to your own server I can help you do that also.  The site migration is free if you use my Hostmonster Link or let me know by email and I can send the link to you.

I offer excellent customer service and total customer satisfaction with quick turn around on all maintenance requests.  My goal is to work with you to create the website you want.  View your site online as it is being developed.

I can help you research your competitions’ sites.  Does a site’s color or gadgets catch your eye?  I will give you suggestions along the way and together we can make your website successful.

In order for your website to be seen, you need search engine optimization incorporated into your web site design.  There are many factors involved in order to make sure that your web site is visible on the internet.  Your web site needs search engines, like Google and Yahoo, to find your business and any updated pages quickly.  This is key to keeping your information, and what you have to sell, easy to find.  Keywords are one of the ways that search engines make this happen, but there are many more. In the last year it has come to light that Google does not even consider keywords as important as they once did, relying more on quality of content.  As a web designer, this is one of the many tasks that will be implemented to make sure that your website is there for everyone see.  SEO is an on-going task.  Anyone who tells you they can have you in the top 10 in a month is not telling you the truth.

SEO results take some time to see.  There are no shortcuts.  Any search engine algorithms are secret and no one has the upper hand.  Shoddy back-links and all the keywording in the world are not going to replace good content.  Poor quality links can get you black-listed or land you on the last page of search results. 

Search engines are gearing more towards quality content and good coding practices.  Poor quality content and poor coding will stop search engine spiders from crawling your site.  So keep all of this in mind when you are putting your content together.  I will make sure the good coding part is taken care of. 

One of the first things I will need in designing your site will be what is called branding.  Business cards and stationery all have branding.  This is the colors and any logo that you use to make your business unique.  What do you look for when you are on a road trip and want to stop at McDonald’s.  I know I look for the red sign with the big M on it.

Another item we will talk about is what you want inside your website.  Every page has to have some kind of content in it.  Content is King.  Are you selling merchandise online?  You will want pictures of the items you have to sell and good descriptions.  I also do photography and image modification.  Do you want articles pertaining to your business or merchandise that you sell to have links to other relevant articles?

Everything you want in your website needs to be on a list.  Think about it.  Write it all down.  Don’t do it in the spur of the moment. Then contact me and I will send you my web questionnaire.  Fill it out  and send it to me.  Or call me and we can discuss it.  We can make your website what you want it to be, with a design that will attract the search engines that make your web site visible to everyone who uses the internet.

If you need maintenance of your website after completion, let me know.  My rates for webpage maintenance are very reasonable.  Read my article on web site maintenance and let me know.

Certain Web Design can set up your website, provide hosting and/or get a domain name for you.  You can be up and running in no time at all.  Go to my web design estimator  for an idea of what you might like to do on your site or fill out the web design questionnaire and send it to me.  I will get back to you as soon as possible.  Or you can call me by pressing the button below.
