Comprehensive Service Listing
I specialize in building websites that are fast, easy to use, optimized for search engines, and cross-browser compatible. But that’s certainly not all I do. Here’s the full list:
Website Design and Development
Cross-browser friendly code using progressive enhancement
PHP web apps — both framework-based and from scratch
There’s tons of excellent code out there that’s already written, free, and is supported by thousands of power users who are continuously finding new ways to improve it. Why pay for pricey software when you can use open source? In many cases, I have found that open source provides a better solution than expensive software solutions. Need something the open source community can’t provide? I can solve the problem! I love writing PHP myself, an extremely popular and free platform for writing web applications. PHP has been used for many huge websites such as Facebook.
WordPress / OpenCart integration
Enjoy the power and flexibility of WordPress for content management and OpenCart for the online shopping cart. I specialize in integrating the two frameworks. You’ll end up with a WordPress theme used across your site and a completely separate install of both frameworks, that can be updated to their latest versions—for security and bug-fix reasons.
Search engine optimization (SEO)
I work to maximize your rankings on search engines so that your customers find you much more easily. This includes writing semantic, search engine optimized code, and also making recommendations for how content should be written and structured if you want to update your website in the future.
Content management system (CMS) integration
CMS systems allow you to maintain your site without being a web guru. A common package I use for a CMS solution is the popular blog and CMS software WordPress. CMS systems provide a word processor-like interface for editing content that requires little training to use.
If you don’t have time to keep your website up to date, why not let me do it? Most updates can be made within 24-48 hours.
Animated Adobe Flash elements
Flash elements add visual interest to your site and draw the user in so that more visitors stay on your site and read about what you have to offer them.
I can analyze your traffic patterns to find trends that can reveal what can be improved to maximize your ROI. I can also answer questions you may have about your visitors such as “What geographic locations are most of our visitors coming to our site from?”.
Got a design but need someone to make it ready for the web? I strive for the cleanest, most easily updatable code I can write, while meeting W3C standards and thinking about SEO from the first line of code written to the last.
I can look at your website and tell you (as well as implement) the steps required for improving your search engine rankings.
Rich Internet Applications
Easy to use, great-looking web applications that simplify tasks for your staff or customers and impress them at the same time.
Animated Sales Presentations
Stunning, smooth motion graphics with voiceover that will inform and impress clients and make sales an easier job.
Interactive Sales and Training Tools
Intuitive web or desktop software which users can navigate and learn material at their own pace.
Email Marketing Campaigns
Eye-catching emails that drive traffic to pages on your website with a marketing goal in mind.
I can set your brand apart with a recognizable mark that fits your company like a glove.
Brand Identity Development and General Graphic Design
This includes logos, company style guides, letterheads, brochures, bulk mail materials, and more.
I shoot well-lit photos that accurately represent your products and make them look their best
