Website Design and Development

A great website is absolutely essential for a small business.

My focus isn’t just on making a website – it’s on getting to know you, your business, your vision for yourself and your business, and from there begin planning a website that’s right for you.

I know main street and home-based businesses don’t have corporate-sized budgets for website creation. I’ll create a great website that fits your needs AND your budget.

A bridal and formal gown shop MUST be mobile-friendly. The young clients for this kind of business seldom use a laptop or tablet.

We created a clean site that looks great on mobile devices and showcases the beautiful gowns and accessories Shawn’s offers.

A lawn care and landscaping business needs to showcase its work.

Prime Lawn & Landscape has a new WordPress website hosted on SiteGround that shows their work beautifully not only in a photo gallery but in a Before & After section displaying the improvements Prime Lawn & Landscape can make on a property.

We also added copy that goes beyond telling site visitors what Prime Lawn & Landscaping can do but also markets this company’s lawn care, landscaping, and snow removal services.

This is an exclusive event that supports the Greater Hulett Community Center and the Wyoming Wildlife Foundation. I got a call in December asking if I could get a new website done by February with secure online registration. We got it done. I used Jotform to create all the online registration packets for the event’s sponsors, hunters, landowners, guides, and even the site’s contact form. Now all the data can be collected in Jotform and exported to an Excel file with the click of a button. 

We are soon adding a link to the online auction so participants can click a button to join in the fun!

Kevin created this website himself when he opened Skylabs in 2016.

Now, in 2022, he wanted an online store and a way draw more people to his website. We added a shop powered by WooCommerce, a blog called The Hi-Fi Fanatic featuring photos and info about the vintage stereo systems of his growing YouTube audience, and a huge showcase of vintage receivers, turntables, and speakers for site visitors to browse.

We also improved the site’s appearance and function, including using the Skinny theme which allows visitors to choose to view the site in light or dark mode!

Integrity Freight & Logistics needed a site that is primarily used by carriers. We added a printable carrier packet to the site to simplify the process of carrying with Integrity Freight. We also added a link to Bulkloads’ website where carriers can find loads to haul.

We wanted the site to also reflect Integrity Freight’s commitment to excellence and their willingness to be an advocate for their drivers and customers and to show that the company is run by genuine people committed to providing outstanding service.

Bill wanted a simple website with neutral, masculine colors and lots of photos of the horses he trains and the people he teaches to ride.

We use video extensively to demonstrate his style of horse training and show what he teaches at his riding lessons and clinics on social media (check out the videos we created on Rumble).

He gets a lot of business through his Facebook page that I manage.

The good search engine optimization of his website ensures that RQ Horsemanship shows up when people search keywords and phrases such as “horse trainers near me” or “riding lessons in the Des Moines area.”

I teamed up with Tina Smith Graphics to redesign the website for the City of Brookfield, Missouri. This website contains 83 pages of information all about the city government of Brookfield, the town, and the surrounding area. 

We created a light, bright, colorful website with easy-to-navigate drop-down menus. Ease of use was foremost the design for this site.

I wrote the copy for the website, implemented the SEO, and helped with creating some of the pages and directories using Tablepress, a plugin used to create tables in pages and posts on WordPress sites.

This is my recipe blog that I publish under just my first name (I don’t need weirdos showing up in my driveway).

My approach to recipe blogging is different than most: I put the recipe at the very top of the post for the reader’s convenience. Affiliate links are not on this blog. Instead, I’m creating products to sell directly through an upcoming online shop on this website to generate income.

My client needed a site that, as a non-techie, she could manage herself.

Since she already used Square for collecting payments and setting appointments on her old custom-coded site, we created a Square website for her. Square websites are incredibly easy to manage and work seamlessly with her existing Square account.

Now she can manage her own website without hiring someone to do it for her!

Frontier Leadership Resources offers leadership training for civic, Christian, and school groups in rural areas.

Michelle wanted a clean, simple website reflecting progressive thinking while respecting her clients’ traditional living in small and rural communities.

She also wanted assistance clarifying her thoughts and services in the copy of the website. I wrote the copy for Frontier Leadership Resources, and I also designed the logo for her company.

Paradigm Fitness and Wellness

A Wix website works best for Paradigm Fitness and Wellness due to its extremely user-friendly interface making it easy for my client to manage her website herself.

We branded with the colors of sun and sky because my client believes that being outdoors contributes greatly to overall health and she trains her clients outdoors as much as possible. I designed the logo as well.

Right now, the website is offline due to the owner experiencing a bad outcome from surgery. It will be online again when she’s able to manage a business.
