I have designed and maintained websites since 2000. I used to use MicroSoft® Word and ftp the sites to the host, then tried GoDaddy’s Website Tonight, and Joomla, but I have had the most success in creating quality websites with WordPress.
If all you need is a site that is informational in nature, a quick resource that tells people who you are and how they can reach you (like mine), your website could cost as little as $30 a year once we’ve got it up and running. If your website needs regular updating or you want more bells and whistles, it costs a little more, but we would always make sure we stayed within your budget. Websites don’t have to cost an arm and a leg, contrary to popular opinion. Take a look at a few samples of my work below, then call or email so we can get started on your website!
Minnehaha Conservation District
The Minnehaha Conservation District from South Dakota wanted their website to have eye-catching colors and a News of the Week announcement page. They wanted pictures of their plants and an easy way to download their order form. They also wanted a generic email address that would automatically forward to their work account. Finally, they wanted an online calendar for posting meeting times and special events.
Lowry Community Covenant Church
Lowry Community Covenant Church in Minnesota wanted a simple design, a feeling of “home” and warmth, and training for the person who would be doing the maintenance. It only took Elin thirty minutes over the phone to learn how to update the calendar, change text, and add pictures.
Southwood United Church of Christ
This great church in Missouri decided it was time for a face lift. We kept most of their information, changed a few menu items, and gave it a new, fresh look.
… and after
Sioux Empire Water Festival
The Sioux Empire Water Festival committee in South Dakota wanted a fun look that would appeal to their audience — 4th graders. They wanted their presenters, exhibitors, and teachers to be able to register online as well as submit online evaluations. They also requested slideshows so the kids and their parents could see what was in store for them.
I hope you can see that it doesn’t matter where you or I live for us to work together on a great website. In this day of video conferencing, faxes, scans, email, and telecommuting, we can easily do business together. I am able to video conference via Skype, Facetime, Messenger, or Gmail, and can help you with every step from the first consultation to the final question. And I LOVE to travel so who knows when I’ll be ready for a road trip to your place!
