Our Experience Helps You
"I'm totally clueless and this is really intimidating."
If this is how you feel, then we can help you get the website you need, without feeling overwhelmed.
Most of our clients are startups, and most of the rest are business owners who have never owned a website before. We understand that your needs are different than the needs of a corporation, or a business owner who has an existing website!
Some web designers call it "hand holding" to walk someone through the process and help them understand why things need to be done a certain way. They consider it to be a waste of time to educate their clients so the client can make a choice that benefits them for the lifetime of the site instead of just making arbitrary decisions that the client then has to live with.
We don't feel that way. One of the most rewarding aspects of web design, in our opinion, is to help someone learn and grow through the process of building their first site. It's pretty cool to talk to someone who is clueless about the technical issues, to give them a way to understand an issue and make a good choice, and then to hear them say, "I get it! It makes sense now!"
Just because you don't understand all about web design, that does not mean you are stupid. We believe you are capable of making the right choices for your business, if we help you understand in a way that makes sense to you... Issue by issue, choice by choice, patiently over the course of the contract, we will help you know what is important to know, while we worry about code and server compatibility, and the technical details that would only distract you from doing your REAL job, which is running your business.
- If you need explanations, we'll give them to you.
- If you want a certain feature that may cause you problems later, we'll tell you what the long term issues are.
- If you are not sure what features you need on your site, we'll help you understand how you might use the features that are available, and which ones aren't necessary.
- If you are afraid that we'll make recommendations based on what is most profitable for us, we won't. If you honestly do not need something, we'll tell you. If you might or might not need it, then we will explain so you can understand, and then you can make the right choice for you.
- We won't ever take advantage of your lack of experience with technical issues.
Web newbies are our preferred clients. We like working with them, because we enjoy teaching and helping them get an end result that they could not get if they worked with a less experienced designer.
We could target successful businesses. We have the experience and technical expertise to build much more complex and much more lucrative sites than we usually do. We CHOOSE to work with startups and first time site owners, because we like to!
We have the greatest clients in the world. They work hard, are as generous as they can afford to be, and they are just terrific people.
We'd love for you to become one of them!
