Why choose me for your web development needs?
As a business owner myself, I understand the stress involved in hiring someone to work for you. This decision can be even more daunting when it involves your online image and marketing. Your website is a public representation of you and your brand, and you want to make sure you’re presenting your best side to the world. So why am I a good choice for such an important decision?
I have a diverse skill set
The advantage of my wide range of skills is that I can handle many different kinds of projects, but the added benefit is that it saves you money. All my work is done by me, in-house. This means the design, production, development, launch, and maintenance of your site are all completed by yours-truly. Since I’m not hiring anyone else to help with the work, this significantly cuts down on my overhead, meaning I can charge fair prices.
I'm a WordPress Guru
WordPress is the internet’s most popular Content Management System, and is what I recommend for most of my client’s sites. I know all the ins and outs, and how to get a great looking site up and running fast. Since WordPress is so user friendly, clients often don’t need my help making updates or posting content once I’ve completed their site. You can read more about why WordPress is such a great CMS here.
I am reliable
I make it a point of pride that I always respond quickly to client inquiries and requests. I was born and raised in Chicago, meaning I'm a native English speaker. My normal work hours are Monday thru Friday, 9-5 CST. Prior to becoming a web developer, I spent 8 years in the US Army, which means I understand the importance of clear communication, time management, staying organized, and remaining task oriented.
I’ve used WordPress for most of the work I’ve done for clients as well as for my own projects. Whether we’re building a site from concept to launch or you just need some simple custom edits, I can walk you through the process.
