Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.
Design is how it works.

I Build Wix Websites
Why do I use the Wix platform to build websites?
I have used other platforms in the past but when I look at design capabilities, pricing and ease of use for customers, I find that Wix is usually the best fit for new or small businesses.
The 3 elements that go into my web designs:
It's not just about the visual design of your website.
You also need a web designer who can take an analytical approach when it comes to organizing your information and providing good navigation on your website.
If people don't understand what you offer or can't find what they're looking for, they'll leave your website.
Web copy are the words on your website. They tell your story, explain your offerings and guides users through the experience.
But, typical writing rules don't always apply to website writing and could actually harm user experience.
I offer writing and editing services for web design projects, or as a stand-alone service.
Web design needs to incorporate good Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques.
This will provide your website a better chance at being found organically in Search Engines such as Google (that essentially means free advertising!).
It also goes hand-in-hand with a better user experience for your audience. Basic on-page SEO is a good foundation for website success.

4 things I focus on when designing websites:
...Tamara was so easy to work with and took all of my input and added her professional touch to our entire website. We have had an amazing response since we have launched our new site and couldn't be happier with the results...

You have information to share.
My job is to organize that information so people can easily navigate through it to find the information they are looking for. We don't want someone to find your website and leave shortly after because they can't figure out how to buy your product, book an appointment, or find the information you're looking to provide them.
Good navigation is important!
Providing a good user experience will help convert visitors to customers, clients, followers or whatever your goal may be.
Words are such an important element of a website. They tell your story, what you offer and information you want the readers to know. Words help build a connection between your business and the user - this helps gain their trust and convert them to customers.
Simple, easy to understand language is important. How the text is structured to help with site navigation is important. Your brand voice is important. Storytelling to draw the readers in is important.
The words are important!
You need a good foundation for your website. The first step is to make sure certain Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques are used when building your website, such as internal linking and properly coded Headings.
I design your website with on-page SEO in mind.
You and your brand are important.
I am a good listener and value your vision because this website is not about me, but you. My goal is to understand what you want, what your business is and what your goals are so I can build a website that reflects your brand.
