Why Choose Me

Satisfaction – I’m not happy until you are! I have an eye for detail and take pride in my work, and strongly encourage your suggestions and other input throughout the development of your website. You’ll be able to watch the progress every step of the way, as I will provide for you a password-protected web address for this purpose alone.

Customer Service – Unlike the larger companies who really don’t have the time for personalized service, I am always here for you, and I’ll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have. If  I’m not sure of the answer I’ll do my best to find it for you. I’ll also give you tips on copy, keywords, linking, or anything else related to making your website the best it can be. I don’t believe in building your website and then just forgetting about you! You’ll find that I’m very easy to talk with, and very friendly. Read more at Personalized Web Design Services

Low Cost Web Design My rates are very competitive, because I have very low overhead.

Cross Browser Compatibility – I’ll be testing your design in Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer 9 (IE8 and under is no longer supported), Opera, and Google Chrome to ensure cross browser compatibility.

Consistency of Design/Usability – Currently, the average connection speed is approximately 5Kbps (kilobytes per second). Thus, a 40 Kb web page will take approximately eight seconds to download. This just fits within the so-called ‘eight second rule’, which is considered the recommended loading time for web pages. That is, it has been suggested that users will tolerate no more than around eight seconds for a web page to download. I try to keep pages at 15Kb or under, ensuring quick load times. And so your visitors won’t become lost on your website and have to wonder if they’re still on the same website at all, your design will maintain a consistent look throughout your web site, including an easy to use and logical navigational system.

Enjoy Fast Indexing – Your website link will be listed on this website, which is spidered everyday. This gets your website indexed much faster – usually only a couple days or so – than submitting it to the search engines and waiting for them to retrieve it from their files before they go check it out, which can take up to a month or more.

WARNING If you have ever been offered “Guaranteed search engine placement for $xx per month” then you are almost certainly being ripped off. The scam is to list all the search engines that you want to be in the top ten results for (like Google, MSN, Yahoo, AltaVista etc.) and then list a few search engines you haven’t heard of. When the guaranteed results are investigated – you find that you are only in the top ten results of the search engines that you haven’t heard of – and on further investigation you find that the company that sold you the service runs these sites. It is a popular and profitable scam. Don’t be taken in. Demand to see results they have had for real people and take up references from them. Always remember that 90% of search engine optimization is offsite, and takes time. If they are only charging a few dollars per month it simply isn’t possible to get you to the top of Google for that kind of money. Large corporations have dedicated teams of people working full time to get them to the top of Google, and it still isn’t guaranteed!
