Get to know “This” Web Developer and “This” Great Team!

San Diego Based WordPress Web Design

When you start building a website of any kind on the internet, you should have someone with experience help you get started. I specialize in WordPress Development and Design because the platform works with so many businesses. Did you know over 25% of all websites on the internet are WordPress websites?

People choose WordPress as their design and development platform for its broad range of capabilities. It doesn’t matter if you are simply looking to give your business an online presence or create the next big thing in e-commerce: if you want to create an amazing website that is scalable, easy to maintain, and does not require a team of expensive engineers to build, you want to use WordPress. Even TechCrunch and the New Yorker websites are built on WordPress!

So if your business has less online traffic than either of the two websites mentioned, you can make a great business site for your brand using WordPress. I work with my team to make sites that look great on all devices and give your business the look and feel to keep your clients engaged and interested in working with you. Our transparent approach to web development can help you better understand the how’s and why’s behind the importance of a custom built WordPress website.

If you are here in Southern California, we would love to meet you in person. We enjoy working personally with our clients, so if you are in the area, it would be our pleasure to arrange an in-person meeting to go over your questions, concerns, and even show you how we make our websites!

Target All The Right Customers

We can help tailor your website to fit your target demographic. What’s more, we can analyze your existing site traffic to help you learn about the behavior of your existing visitors to further engage your audience.

Improve User Experience and Site Speed

Nobody likes when a website loads funny on their screen, and the only thing they like less is a site that never loads. We can create a website that looks great on every device and loads quickly without sacrificing your ideal user experience.

We Work Tirelessly to Deliver 5-Star Results

Our clients are the most important part of our business. Ironically, we have not even optimized this website for SEO! This is because our clients almost always find us or hear about us from other happy clients.

We want to make sure you get the best user experience, so we will put in the extra hours to make sure when all is said and done, you will recommend our work too!

Let's Work Together!

If you are looking to build a great website, or perhaps improve on your existing website, give us a call! Let’s discuss what we can do together.

My Proven Process for Designing Your Site

We developed a standard, proven process that creates positive results for clients.  By knowing my process, you’ll always know exactly where your project stands as you see it come together.  The following is a broken down process of clear steps that simply work.  These eight phases, followed in order, can move along swiftly while making sure we do things in the right order.  The main reason we follow this process is that it delivers results that clients love!

Phase 1:  You provide your content—photos, videos, text, and articles.

Don’t have your content yet?  Let’s talk about your timeline. Then, ‘batch’ your content and send it all at once.  Why?  We have found over and over that when clients wait to send their content altogether, they have clearer thoughts about what they want and have fewer revisions, saving you time and money.

Phase 2:  We discuss your design ideas and requirements. 

We will have a phone conversation about your goals for your new website.  You’ll tell us your ideas or even point me to some sites you like.  We’ll talk colors, fonts and layout ideas.  We’ll discuss all the key components of your site.  We’ll hone in on the number of pages and what should go on each page. We will be sure to take copious notes!

Phase 3:  We design your site.

This is where it starts to get fun!  Your initial site will start to bring it all together.  It will have all the things we discussed in Phase 2.  But…it won’t look just the way you want it.  When you know how this process works, that won’t bother you, because you’ll know what’s coming in Phase 4.

Phase 4:  We go through your site on the phone and make decisions together about the final site.  

In this conversation, you’ll be telling us, “I like this.  I don’t like that.  Make this bigger.  Make this smaller.  I love this color but hate that one.  Etc, etc, etc.”   We will provide our professional input and you make the decisions.  Then, you let us go back to work to quickly bring your site together.

Phase 5:  The fine tuning. 

We go to work making all the changes we discussed in Phase 4, bringing your site into focus to look just the way you want it.  Frankly, clients usually get nervous in Phase 4 and then get excited after Phase 5.  We share this process so clients know—that’s normal!

Phase 6:  The punch list.  

After you’ve had a chance to look over your Phase 5 site, there will still be a few things you want me to tweak.  Now is the time!  You provide one complete list of all the changes that remain and we will turn them around for the final phase.  It’s not uncommon to have a number of small changes—no problem.  We just need them all in one list, one time.  Note:  Revisions are fine, but complete re-designs at this step would require a change order with additional cost.  Again—that’s why we share this process, so you’re sure that we hone in on what you want in Phase 4 and 5.

Phase 7:   Site Performance.

When we design a site as outlined above, our core focus is user experience, functionality, and visual appeal.  Then, we turn attention to site performance.  How fast do your pages load?  How does your site look on a computer, a tablet, a mobile phone?  Our team will be sure that we’ve used design techniques that enable your site to perform well.  We will also let you know if there are things about your web-hosting or content that are holding your site back.  We will fix any performance issues caused by the design and provide you with a list of other issues that are beyond the design.

Phase 8:  Your Website is Complete!

At this point, we will submit a request for final acceptance and payment.  From the beginning, we will be working to create great work that you will recommend and perhaps even provide a testimonial for our services! We always want to be at the top of mind when you are looking for someone on your next project, and we are only as good as our last job, so please let us know if there is anything we need to do to earn your recommendation!  The ultimate compliment is when clients refer our services to friends and colleagues.

Miscellaneous:

The process outlined above has been proven to give clients peace of mind and a site that ‘wows’ them.  When you work with our team, you know exactly what to expect and we find clients really appreciate that.

Our team works Monday through Friday, but we save our weekends for family, friends and just re-charging. We are responsive and occasionally work late, but don’t pull all-nighters.  That means you’ll always have a rested, energetic, motivated professionals working on your project!

We created this process to make sure that our services are a mutual fit, so if you have any questions about the process, we are always available to discuss how we can work with your company’s needs.
