I’ve been working on web applications since the late 1990s – my first project was deployed to a global team of over 3000 technical support engineers. I started full-time web work in 2004 at a marketing firm and have continued evolving through the web field as the web itself has evolved. After a stint as a ‘working’ manager of web developers, I am now retired from full-time work but available to work on small websites. In addition to web development work, I taught web development at DeVry University in the early 2000s (during which the Netscape 6 upgrade required a complete re-work of the class!)
Looking for someone to build a website?
Some Facts About Me:
When creating your website, I will:
- Optimize your website for Search Engines so it is easily found.
- Ensure it is accessible to all visitors by meeting W3C Accessibility Standards
- Add security features to reduce bot and spam activity
- Select a theme that is responsive to all devices/screens so your site can be viewed by everyone
- Set up Google Analytics for your site so you can understand visitor traffic
WordPress is my usual method for deploying websites but my extensive development experience allows me to cross into other technologies easily.
- SEO, SMM, AdWords -
Search engine optimization and online marketing ensure your business is found easily by your customer base.
Brand New Website
First, we’ll discuss what you are looking for in your website, what styles you prefer, what your branding looks like.
Next step is for me to compare your needs against potential themes and have you select a design that appeals to you.
I’ll install the theme and incorporate the design features, colors and elements that you selected. Options will be reviewed and selections made. At this point, accessibility testing is performed and tweaks to colors or element functionality are made.
4. Content Incorporation
At this point, content is incorporated into the design. Once the content is complete on the site, Search Engine Optimization elements are incorporated.
5. Testing and Tweaking
All of the design and content will be tested and tweaks made to both as needed.
6. Website Is Ready!
Launch of the website!
Work is completed on an hourly rate of $50 per hour. I will provide updates on progress and hours worked on a weekly basis. Smaller websites usually run between $500 and $1000.
Updates to versions of PHP, WordPress, Theme and Plugins are performed on a regular basis and can be billed on a monthly or per-hour basis.
Monthly or Hourly
Email is the best way to reach me. From there, we can meet in a coffee shop or library to discuss the website. Since I am employed full-time, I work on the websites in the evenings and on weekends.
