The Howard Thomas Group website contains advanced features such as rotating images and referal forms.

The Apex Custom Software website is a simple, elegant site.

Because many small businesses don’t have the resources for dedicated Information Technology staff, establishing a website can seem daunting. And while software exists to build your own website, designing a website that reflects your mission and conveys a professional image is no easy task. For these and other reasons, many small businesses have not established an Internet presence.

My experience in website design and development can help your small business create a cost-effective, professional website. By focusing on design elements such as color and images, my sites blend the owner’s preferences and fit cleanly into their existing business image. Layout and navigation are critical success factors and my websites help to get users to relevant information in the fewest clicks and emphasize key information. I also include options for advanced features such as contact forms, referral forms, secure access, and website traffic analysis tools. Learn more about my website design and development services.

In addition to website design and development, I also have experience in search engine optimization (SEO). SEO is the technique of improving the rank of website pages in search engine results. Simply having a website is not always enough to generate significant traffic to the site. Most websites receive the majority of their visits based on referrals from search engines. For this reason, it’s important to make sure that your site is listed as highly as possible in the results for search terms related to your small business and its products or services. There are several dishonest techniques that some SEO consultants may employ – which could get a website banned by search engines - however, I only use reputable means of improving rankings.
