I’ve been designing websites since the web was born. I built websites in the days of Flash and websites that pre-date mobile devices and social media. There is no doubt the web has changed our lives, it’s changed how we shop, how we get news, how we keep-in-touch with friends & family, and how & where we do business. As the web matures, we need to evolve with it to stay relevant. This where I come in, I help small & mid-sized businesses leverage this fast-paced digital space by helping businesses become memorable with meaningful design, I help businesses get found using techniques to increase visibility in search engines, and I help businesses develop experiences that delight users on their terms whether it be from a desktop, tablet, or mobile device.
Do you use any Free / DIY website platforms, eg. Wix, Weebly?
No I do not. MWH is a custom design company, DIY platforms offer canned design templates and stock art (used by tons of others) to help small businesses on a very low budget get online fast. However, those who choose these platforms often run into problems forcing a restart and maybe even loss of time. What DIY platforms do not offer that MWH does is; one-on-one professional consultant, design catered specifically to your business needs, design unique to you and your brand, long-term relationships, expertise in marketing like SEO and social media, support management & hosting, and lastly a product and a partner your business can grow with.
How much does a website cost?
Each website I build is hand-crafted, individually tailored to the needs of the client. It's due to this reason there is no set price, however as a ballpark, small business websites tend to fall in the $4k to $7k range, whereas a mid-sized business website may start around $6k and exceed $20k depending on the requirements.
Can you build an eCommerce website?
Yes! If you're looking to sell physical, or digital goods online I can help you get up and running the right way. Whether you sell a single item or have thousands of SKUs, I can provide your business with consulting on the best platform, payment systems, design, and marketing for your online store.
How long does a website take to develop?
Your website's project timeline will depend on the size and scope of the project, as well as what else I have on my schedule. I've built websites in as little as a month, and have had other projects last as much as a year plus.
Will I have access to edit my own website?
The short answer is yes. MWH uses WordPress to develop 95% of our website projects. With WordPress, we can customize the admin to give your team easy-to-use editable areas of your choice such as galleries, portfolios, pages, service menus, and much more. We'll also provide training materials to guide you post-launch.
Once my website is complete, what happens next?
Upon the approval of your website, a few things will happen in order to launch. I'll work with you to set up the proper hosting environment, and help set up email if desired. When applicable, I'll also set up your website's ongoing support plan, and kick-start any marketing services we agreed upon.
Who creates the content for my website?
This is an excellent question. The content of your website may consist of page text, high-level messaging, and photography. We'll work with you to understand the type of content needed, then it's up to you if you'd like to hire an outside writer, write your own content, use stock photography or hire a photographer. If you don't have time to find these resources, I can provide additional consulting to help find the best fit.
Can my website be expanded at a later date?
Absolutely! In contrast to print, websites can evolve as often as you want. I'm only an email away if you need something new I'll be here to support your business as your needs change and as you grow.
Do you only work with local businesses?
Nope, I've worked with clients all across the US and am happy to discuss your project regardless of where your company resides.
