Your Business Needs a Website

Your site needs to be mobile ready

Mobile Internet usage has skyrocketed over the past few years and has just recently taken over desktop Internet searches. The mobile readiness of your site is important to reach this growing section of consumers, not to mention your rankings in Google. The following figures should give you a good idea just how mobile readiness is elemental to the continued success of your business.


94% of smartphone users have looked for local information. 84% have taken action as a result.


57% look for local info at least once a week. 25% look for local info daily.

61% will leave immediately if a website is not mobile-friendly and look for move on to another site.


Those are some serious numbers. Here's a few more: 41% of small businesses don't think they need a website, and only 53% are online. Cost is the number one concern for 19%, but what do you think costs a business more, an investment in a website, or the customers that they are losing every day by not having a website? The figures speak for themselves and the numbers continue to grow. If you're not online, you're invisible. Getting your business online not only helps your business but helps your community become an online resource for consumers.


“I've been meaning to get a website for my business but I can never find the right person or the time and I'm concerned that there will be a lot of daunting, unfamiliar choices. I need someone I can rely on and trust. Someone with the experience to manage the entire project.”

This is where you find out about me, my professional experience in helping clients and businesses achieve an online presence and hopefully, to those who are still hesitant, to provide enough reassurance to effect a positive action and take the first step to getting your business online.

Unfamiliar choices

When you first try to start an online presence you're faced with a daunting amount of unfamiliar choices. Maybe modern technology is foreign to you and you don't know what to expect. Maybe you're ready but you don't know where to start, or maybe you just need someone to talk to about how and where to start. Your smartest choice is to turn to a local independent expert to consult with for explaining expectations such as different online marketing options, what the project development schedule would be, how long it would take, and what the likely budget would be. You need to look for a consultant that is capable of earning your trust.

Everything you need. Expertly managed and executed.

Hybrid Web Development

Design is not detached from development. Integration of knowledge from both sides results in a website which is that much better at appealing to the visual sensibilities of a visitor while simultaneously providing intuitive website functions.

Responsive Design

Responsive design means knowing that your website will be viewable on mobile devices, which is very important to the ever-growing amount of mobile visitors. If your site is not responsive, you are turning away customers without even knowing it.

Full Cycle Development

I've spent over 16 years managing hundred's of web development projects. I know what's important to you, and how to be effective for your business while managing the project for a smooth experience with amazing results.


Pictures speak louder than words and you want your products to appeal to your customers. Professional landscape, product, and as soon as the FAA clears it, aerial photography and videography will be available.
