Your one-stop shop for all your website needs

Sell online with an ecommerce store

I can help you choose between WooCommerce (WordPress) and Shopify. Then, depending on your budget, we can do either a custom designed theme or a premade template theme. Along with the store and customer account management, you’ll get payment processing, sales tax and shipping calculators, and all the other tools you’ll need to run an online store.

Show off your work with a portfolio site

This type of website is geared towards showcasing your work and encouraging prospective clients to contact and hire you. I can use sliders, image galleries, videos, and graphics with great results. I can match colors, fonts and other design elements to match your brand, as well as incorporate imagery and other graphical elements to complement your work.

Raise awareness with a blog

Whether promoting a cause, plugging affiliate products, collecting ad revenue, or just writing about your cat, I can set you up with the right tools. This almost always involves the CMS platform WordPress, which is king in the blogosphere. This lets you choose from countless free and paid themes. You’ll love it.

You still need a website

Your customers need to be able to find you or they might pass you up for a competitor with a better online presence. Advertise your business hours, contact information and location to the people closest to you. Let them call or email you directly from the website. Give them directions with Google maps.

It’s 2020! You need a website…
