About

Thank you for visiting my web portfolio. I specialize in informational web sites for consultants, keynote speakers and small businesses. This includes buy or donate online through PayPal. Home for this design studio is Madison, Wisconsin but I have had customers from Maryland to Florida to Colorado – see current list.

LinkedIn Icon All quotes on this site are directly from my web clients. Read more on my LinkedIn Profile.

You will see in my portfolio that I have many long-term clients.
Why my web customers hired me and keep coming back:

  • The site looks great! - Deb from EngaginTechReferrals – the engine of small businesses. Clients recommend me.
  • Liked other web sites
  • Time based charging – no monthly fee
  • Willingness to collaborate on design
  • Willingness to take control, or act on an as-needed basis
  • Liked how I explained things or helped think through ideas
  • Liked how PayPal was incorporated into the design; does not have to look like a generic shopping cart
  • Helped them out of a jam (web host disappeared, web designer disappeared)
  • LOO – “Madison local” and woman owned

What they also like:

  • SEO  – Google, Bing, Yahoo
    I use best practice methods for improving performance on search engines. This organic (no paid ad) search engine optimization has worked well for my clients.  Good SEO practices + frequent updates are key ingredients.
  • I can be replaced (!)
    I set up your website so that you could replace your web host or your web designer (me!) with minimum hassle. You hold contract and passwords with your web host and URL name. If something goes amiss, you are in control. When choosing a web designer ask yourself what will happen if you want to part ways?  Some designers “take care of it all” for you, but in the long run are they really protecting themselves or you?
