...with the design, implementation, and operation of small retail business marketing programs, creating websites, email campaigns and print catalog design and production.
With years of direct "hands on" experience with small and organizations I understand the challenges and constraints you face when developing and maintaining a relevant and competitive presence in today's internet.
My mission is to create a website and e-marketing tools that you can operate and manage to bring your story to your customers and community.
By using a CMS (content management software) solution I create websites and e-mail applications that your staff or volunteers can update and manage the content of with nothing more than your browser! The website software automatically formats and places your information and images in the appropriate places on your site. The e-mail marketing solutions I provide operate in the same manner.
The way we use computers to get information from the internet has changed dramatically in the past few years. Today there are more and more people using their phones and tablets to browse the web. It is projected by 2015 mobile browsing will be the rule rather than the exception.
So it is crucial that your website is designed to adapt to every possible device rather than a traditional design solely catered to desktop browsing. This is called responsive web design, and it is what I focus on.
The most fundamental and effective marketing tool for your organization or business is a well designed and developed website. It must reflect the unique nature of your "brick and mortar" presence.
Do not settle for "cookie cutter" straight out of the box solutions. Your web presence must effectively tell your unique story to the world. I offer a full website design and development service which not only includes designing beautiful, engaging, effective and easy-to-use web designs, but also e-mail marketing programs.
The first step is to figure out what your goals and objectives are. Check out websites for organizations similar to yours. What are your competitors offering on their sites? What features and services do you envision for your new site?
Once we've worked out your website goals and objectives I design an web interface tailored around achieving what we initially planned out. When the design phase is over and you approve the look and feel of your website I begin developing your interface design into a fully compliant web standards website.
After an average 3-6 weeks of web development for a standard website, we launch your new site. Training and support is provided to ensure you have full control over your new website.

I look forward to hearing about your projects soon!
Whenever possible I use "open source" software solutions. Primary examples are the superb content management programs Joomla and Wordpress that provide web standards compliant frameworks for many of my website designs.
Since most people are only familiar with proprietary products like Microsoft Windows I felt it would be helpful to share some information about the numerous advantages open source software offers for businesses and organizations, some of them even more valuable than the software's low price!
None of this is to say, of course, that your organization should necessarily use open source software for everything. But with all the many benefits it holds, you'd be remiss not to consider it seriously.
