Where did you learn to build websites?
I took coding classes while at the Academy and I honed my web design skills when I quit my day job as a Technical Writer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. I'm also a proud graduate of LaunchCode's CoderGirl program.
Why do you use Squarespace?
I use the Squarespace platform for all websites I design after switching from WordPress. Squarespace is powerful, clean, mobile responsive, design-driven and user friendly. There are no plug-ins to install, updates to worry about or third party apps to pay for. Oh, and I know the back end of the platform better than my own (soon-to-be-ex) husband.
What is SEO?
Search Engine Optimization. It's how you get ranked organically on the first page of google. Each website I design comes with basic SEO work so google will recognize your site. Ask me about my SEO supercharged package.
What is your turn around time?
I limit the clients I take on each month so I can give your website the time and attention it deserves. My general turn around time is 2-4 weeks.
No other website designer mentions anything about a target market. Why is that important?
Having my Masters in Business Administration is a huge advantage as I studied (and understand) the business world extensively. In order to bring the right customers to your site I start at the most fundamental level. If you do not know your target market or business mission we will identify it together.
Can I just have a Facebook page?
I would agree that Facebook is important tool for your business as it can drive traffic and sales, but it is not a substitute for a website. Facebook is similar to having a booth at your local Farmer's Market — you have exposure to a lot of foot traffic but you can only reach visitors who "stop by" and they belong to the market itself. With a website, the possibilities are endless and it's yours.
Why should I work with you?
I have what it takes, I'll save you time, I've got a plan and my clients love me. What more reason do you need than that?
