Web Development

FrontBlocksBI'll make this really simple. I'm not going to create a fancy site for this message (I've done that for clients). Nor try to wow you with effects  (I've done that for clients). I'm just going to tell you I've been working in the web space since 1995.

Here's what we can do for you:

  • Help you structure and create your content.
  • Create a new site with appropriate technology.
  • Help you recover existing assets like domains and websites.
  • Handle all graphics, video, and design components.
  • Handle all the logistics and technical stuff.
  • Keep the site up and running.
  • Show you how to manage the content (if you want to).
  • Make sure you can be found.
  • Apply a tested and select group of core add-ins to protect and enhance your site.
  • Host your site on a private, closely managed, server with multiple backups.

I suggest you keep reading...

Since 1995 I've built hundreds of sites from one-page emergency-at-midnight political sites to sites with thousands of pages, custom functions, and extensive media support.

Add to this my extensive skill sets in photography, graphic design, video, publication design, data management, application development, and more and you have a complete, affordable, efficient source for great, effective websites.

You can use dozens of 'instant site' services and free hosting options. You can even pay for advanced services and custom domains names. And if you have years of skill and experience you probably can build a decent website.  But is most likely not your area of expertise and your are probably much better at many other skills and tasks.

We will walk you through the process, host your site on our private, carefully managed servers, make sure you are mobile enabled, and help with the myriad of details that make a modern website. Since most of our work is done in JOOMLA or WordPress, you can easily manage your site if you care to. Along with a sister company in South Carolina, we can work collaboratively on large projects, particularly involving associations and non-profits, which is an area of expertise for them.

So let's talk. Let's find a great solution for your company or organization. For more information contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call me at 410-838-8264.
