Web Design Services
It is nearly impossible to run a successful business today without a solid web presence. This not only demands a website that works and looks good, but your customers must be able to easily find it. The internet is an ever evolving space. The way websites are written changes daily. It is important to stay on top of the trends and criteria that will lead to a successful website. Today websites are more dynamic in the way they let the user interact, this along with social media integration, the web is one of the best ways to promote your company.
I put a great deal of thought into the design of each site to help maximize the user experience. This involves a large number of elements seamlessly working together. It is important that every website is easily navigated so the users know exactly where to go to find what they are looking for. Load time must be kept to a minimum if you want to keep your audience engaged. When more images and content are added it is important to have them optimized so they do not weigh the site down. Above all else it is critical that your website has well written, relevant content. All of these pieces not only help engagement, but a well written fast website will boost your search engine optimization (SEO). Having the best looking website wouldn’t mean much if no one is able to find it. I walk my clients through all of the different design phases when it comes to building a website and work with them to ensure the content that is displayed is relevant and accurate.
Currently I primarily build websites using a WordPress format, I find it to be both user friendly and search engine friendly and I still have total control over the design. With all of the different widgets and plugins that can be added to a website these days it is important to have a good content management system (CMS) to oversee everything. This allows total control of all aspects of the website from making edits to managing user profiles. Integrated with an analytics program you will be able to see exactly what is happening on your site. This can be extremely valuable for a number of reasons but can really help to give you insight on how your audience is reacting to different marketing you may be trying. Your CMS will also let you manage your websites users, and gather important information like names, emails, and phone numbers.
People browse the web on a multitude of devices so all websites I build are fully responsive meaning the layout is optimized to the viewers device screen size whether it be a cell phone, or large computer monitor.

Web design isn’t just limited to having a website. Email marketing can be a great way for companies to grow. Whether it is promoting a specific product or an event your company is hosting, sending email blasts out on a regular basis can not only help with the specific event you are advertising, but can also help you stay imprinted in your customers minds.
Social Media is one of the best ways to advertise nowadays and it is very inexpensive!! Nearly everybody is on social media these days, giving great opportunities to promote your company with different events. Staying fresh on social media has been one of the most successful ways some of my clients have grown their business. There are a number of different ways to utilize this as well. For example you can share posts directly from your website, promote different events, add promotional videos and more.
Video Editing, Animation and Motion Graphics
These days video graphics can be especially useful when it comes to marketing. Video is a very versatile medium, much can be done with it. Video can be used on websites, in email, on social media and more. Video has numerous benefits. It is extremely attention grabbing. Video and animated graphics are the first thing a visitors eyes are going to go to on an otherwise static webpage. Video also gives you an opportunity to add personality to your brand. If we are already taking advantage of social media, using video will increase your audience exponentially. It is much easier to add some excitement to a video campaign than to a static print campaign. I have used video in different ways for past clients and have found it to be most successful in engaging an audience, There are no limits to what can be done with video, making it a great marketing tool whether it is live action, animation or a cross between the two.
