When you finally take that big step and buy your domain to support your new business, you'll either have to learn all you can about web design, or hire a professional web developer.
Sounds like an easy decision to make, doesn't it?
If you have the time and the inclination, you can do some research and put up your own site.
If you don't have the time, energy or technical knowledge, you hire someone.
But, what happens down the road? What if you don't like what your web developer has created for you? What if your business changes? What if you change your logo, product line, pricing, or you write new copy? Well, no matter what changes you make, you're going to have to pay your developer. More time, more money spent.
What if you have a responsive business that changes frequently? What if you do some research about how Google works, and you realize that Google likes it when you add new content to your site? What if you sell unique items and the products change daily?
Get ready to pay... and wait.
Web developers get busy. Sometimes they are not responsive to your needs. Sometimes, it'll drive you crazy.
What if you could take control? What if someone could teach you, very simply, how to construct and edit your own website? What if someone empowered you to control your own brand and website?
That's what I want to do for you.
Most of my current clients found me when their old web designers disappeared, stopped being responsive, or took too long to implement small changes on their websites.
Many web designers play their cards close to their chests- one laughed at me when I told him I make house calls. He didn't want to see or interact with his clients face-to-face.
I can certainly put up a website for you.
But wouldn't it be so much better if I put up the website and showed you how to log in and edit it? Change copy, add pages, reorganize the nav menu, upload a new header logo, new images?
All of those tasks are incredibly easy on Squarespace, Wordpress, GoDaddy and Wix. Those are called WYSIWYG platforms (say "wizzywig"). That stands for What You See Is What You Get, or, put another way, you basically move words and images around till you like what you see. No knowledge of "coding" is necessary. An 8-year-old can admin a WYSIWYG website. Even an 80-year-old can do it. You just need someone to show you how.
Learn website development from me and take control of your online business.
