In 2010, I standardized on WordPress. It makes development cheaper, faster, and better for most clients. I work the niche between projects requiring a full production team, and clients who are comfortable building their own sites. That’s exactly what WordPress was developed for. WordPress sits at this crossroads by supporting content development by users, while facilitating customization by developers.
In short, I have the chops. I made my first website in 1996 by hand-coding HTML. Later I taught college classes in web site design and coding. After obtaining my master’s degree, I was a Java dev for international, multi-million dollar projects. In those days, my code often got merged into gargantuan projects where my individual contribution was invisible. Today, I love seeing my clients’ visions load on the screen in front of us.
If you have a website and you’re here, there’s a good chance it hasn’t been recently maintained. Contact me immediately. I’ll survey your existing site for ticking time bombs, and we’ll discuss what I find. You don’t need to be ready to redesign your site to hire me — in fact I provide emergency services — but it’s a LOT less stressful (and expensive) if we head off problems before your site breaks. About half my clients never proceed with a full redesign, and that’s okay.
If you need a new website, you’re probably afraid it will be complicated and expensive. One thing I love about WordPress is that it’s possible to launch a simple site in under a month, at a very reasonable cost. A simple “brochure site” runs around a thousand dollars for most clients. Larger projects can be developed in stages to get your professional presence up quickly, while defraying the cost and effort for more advanced features until later. I’m happy to work with your schedule and budget. Either way, I love to be there when you cross “website” off your to-do list!
