When we build a fire having good kindling is important.

When building a business, having a web presence is as essential as having a telephone number. However, having an expensive, complicated site is NOT essential. While there are still some people who look for goods and services in the phone book or classified ads, most of us use the internet to let our "mouse" do the walking". I know that when I've been looking for a service online, I will skip over listings that do not have a website.

We use the internet to search for a wide range of goods and services such as a massage therapist, a personal trainer, an attorney or landscaper. We also use the web to look up the hours of an establishment, see their rates, and get directions. In the case of artists, designers, and builders, we can view their portfolios and galleries.

Using my skills in designing and managing websites and my marketing experience, I can help you get a web presence or help you spruce up and streamline your current site. I can also give you direction on how to get your business noticed on the web.

Some of my clients have wanted to have a way for people to pay for their services online from their website, and I have set that up for them as well as secure shopping carts for people to purchase products.

Although the office is located in Carrboro, I have developed websites for businesses located in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and several out of state organizations and companies.

All of the websites I've designed are smart phone friendly because they fit themselves to the screen size of the device being used and maintain their basic design. They are also designed using the latest design protocols which makes them more search engine friendly, allows them to download quickly and have a consistent look in various browsers.

Keep in mind as you look through the sites that I have developed (see portfolio), the client has the ultimate choice as far as the color, layout and content of the site. Call 919-619-0323 to arrange for a complimentary consultation.
