Where To Start FAQ

Get help starting a website

Do you want to show off your work?

Consider a portfolio website! This type of website is geared towards showcasing your work and encouraging prospective clients to contact and hire you. You can use sliders, image galleries, videos, and graphics with great results. Match colors, fonts and other design elements to match your brand, as well as incorporate imagery and other graphical elements. For an example, checkout Apparelmark in my Portfolio.

Do you want to sell your products online?

Open an ecommerce store. I can help you choose between the major shopping platforms. 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. For an example, checkout PlumbM8 in my Portfolio.

Do you want to reach large audience?

Start 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.

Do you have a brick n' mortar shop?

You still need a website. Your customers must 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. For an example, checkout Sabiston Fabrication in my Portfolio.
