Development .."I want a whatcha-ma-call-it & a whizza-me-doo-dah.."
If you can dream it.. I can make it. Well that's not entirely true, but it's pretty close. As I excel at both web design and development then I'm able to handle entire projects from start to finish, from conceptualization right through to the launch. This results in consistency in both design and implementation, and negates any potential miscommunication issues which can occur when working with multiple parties.
Design .."I want something that looks awesome!"
I like the sites I create to be unique, special, and to stand out above the crowd. The first thing someone notices about a site is the way it looks.. it's what draws them in to explore further. Whether it's that professional feel you're going for, or something a little quirky, take a look through my portfolio and see if you like my style.
Ideas .."I haven't got a clue.."
So you've decided you need a website, you just don't know what it should do or how it should look. That's where I come in.. I'm an ideas man. I'll talk to you about your business, your target market, your goals, your likes & dislikes, and then use my expertise to advise you on the best direction to take.
You do have ideas? Then I can work with you to turn what's in your head into reality.
Usability .."Give me something my grandma can use!"
So your grandma might not exactly be your target market but she should still be able to use your website. As I come from a design background I have experience in designing for the user and creating sites that are intuitive and straight forward to use.

Mobile Website Design
More and more people are browsing the web from mobile devices these days, whether it be a smart phone or a tablet. Consumers are accessing websites on the go from a wide range of different devices, so by making your site mobile you open up yourself up to more traffic and more potential customers.
By optimizing your site for mobile it allows users to be able to access your content easily and efficiently from wherever they are. Make sure your site isn't left behind.
I design and build slick, intuitive and attractive mobile websites which are optimized for a range of popular mobile devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android phones & tablets, Blackberry, Palm OS, and Windows Phone 7.

Integrating WordPress into your website gives you control over more than just the content. It allows you to add pages, video, shopping carts, contact forms, blogs, display social media posts, upload files, check your site's stats, and much more. This allows you to extend you business through your website however and whenever you like, without having to rely on a web designer such as myself to do it for you. That added flexibility gives you power and saves you money.

Search Engine Optimization
Search Engine Optimization isn't the most glamorous area of web design, but I provide this service as it's an important factor in getting your website seen by potential customers. It's only natural that you'd want your website to be found above your competitors; no matter how great your site is if it's on page 25 of search engine results then no one's going to find it. A lot of factors affect how your web pages are ranked with various search engines, I use proven in-page optimization techniques to help your site rank above competitors for your targeted keywords.
While there are many things I can optimize within the site itself which will help your site's rankings, please note that a range of factors affect your page listings, some of which are out of my control.
Case 1: K-Traps:
K-Traps is a small business based in Minnesota who build hand-made minnow & turtle traps. They sell these traps through large online catalogs, but in doing so they lose a cut of their profits to the catalog companies. They came to me asking for a website and the request to outrank these large catalog companies in search results so that they could sell directly to customers online.
- ktraps.com now ranks as the 1st overall listing for targeted keywords: 'commercial minnow traps'. They have the first 3 listings on Google for that search term, which is bringing in huge business.
- They are also the 1st overall listing for all of the search requests: 'large minnow traps', 'box minnow traps' and 'cylinder minnow traps'.
- They also rank 2nd overall for keywords: 'minnow traps minnesota'.
- They also rank 2nd overall for keywords: 'quality minnow traps'.
Since the site went online they have been receiving an increasing number of online orders, continue to outrank their key competitors and bring in a huge amount of business.
Case 2: Confluence Creative:
Confluence Creative is an established model makers based in Wolverhampton, England. Their existing site was outdated and underperforming, so they came to me with the request to give their site a makeover and to improve their results in major search engines. Their goals were to rank above all competitors based in the city of Wolverhampton and the Midlands county.
- confluencecreative.co.uk now ranks as the 1st overall listing for the search request: 'wolverhampton model makers'
- They also rank 1st overall listing for search query: 'midlands model makers'.
- They also rank as the 2nd listing for: 'midlands architectural models'.
Since the website went live they have gained an increasing number of customers have who contacted them directly through their site.
