Do you need a new website?
I can help you create an attractive website that reflects your personal style and brand and has all the functionality your small business needs. I look for the simplest solution with the greatest impact, customizing the experience depending on your needs, budget, and desires. And I bring a wide-ranging skill set to your project. I offer fully customized sites and strategic packages that can help you launch a professional website with ease and at an affordable project cost.
From simple to full-featured websites!
One of the great things about WordPress is that your project can be simple or extensive. Sites hosted at WordPress.com can offer simple but professional solutions that are easy to maintain. But WordPress can also be a robust and full-featured solution. We can choose a theme (design) to work with, and I can transform its look and feel to make it your own. We can also add plugins (apps) to extend the functionality of your website. Click here to learn more about WordPress and why I use it as my platform of choice.
What other functionality can I have on my site?
More full-featured sites (self-hosted at places like GoDaddy) offer a huge library of free or low-cost plugins that are available to extend the functionality of your website. You can create e-commerce sites, use PayPal to sell services, integrate with social media, create a sign-up form to connect to an email marketing application like MailChimp or Constant contact. You can manage events, book appointments online, and more. Click here to learn more about WordPress.
Learn to use your website!
As a coach and a trainer, I also have a very strong commitment to ensuring that when the website is complete you are soundly grounded on how to use it. Some people want to maintain their entire website, while others just want to learn to update their pages and add blog entries.
I love to train people to use WordPress! And I find that many times people have a WordPress website, but they don’t know how to use it. I train people one-on-one, in groups and offer WordPress Work Studies! Click here to see more details.
Are you building a WordPress website on your own but have gotten stuck? I fill in the technical gaps so that clients can get their website up! Whether this is pointing them to a plugin that helps fulfill some technical need, teaching them about best practices related to security, writing CSS code, or helping them create a child theme so they can alter the layout of their theme, you are in the right place. Along the way, I also train clients so they can be more self-sufficient.
I charge $60 for the initial one-hour consult, an hourly rate of $45 an hour, and a minimum charge of 30 minutes ($22.50).
How much does it cost to build a website?

Outside of these packages, custom website development cost & complexity vary based on a number of factors:
- The complexity of the project (The most basic of sites can be hosted at WordPress.com which reduces complexity.)
- The amount of custom design work: There are thousands of free and low-cost themes (designs). Some clients wish to keep things simple and don’t opt for much custom work, while others want much more design control over their theme.
- How much of a do-it-yourself person are you? I am always happy to partner with people in building their website. Obviously, the more you do, the less I need to do.
- How much training do you need? Some people feel tech-challenged and need more support, while others need less.
