ABOUT
KATIE 
Hi! I’m Katie and I’m a Website Designer, Developer, and Strategy Guru.  Like you, I was once a small business owner wanting a great website (because every business needs a website these days!) that would wow my customers and grow my business. 

I created my first website and just wanted it to look nice, and quickly realized that was not enough to grow my business.  Business websites need to be used as a valuable tool to grow your business.  With a great looking and functional website, I was able to attract more customers and start my customer relationships on the right foot.   I’ve been creating and coding websites for seven years and I am obsessively focused with using the best design psychology techniques and implementing SEO tactics so your business gets found online and is a powerful marketing tool for your business. 

Let me use my design skills, sales background, and usability knowledge to help grow your business. 

ABOUT
KATIE 
Hi! I’m Katie and I’m a Website Designer and Developer (dev-signer, if you will).  Like you, I was once a small business owner wanting a great website (because every business needs a website these days!) that would wow my customers.  Unfortunately, I had no idea how to make a website myself!

Taking it as a personal challenge, I decided to expand my skills as an artist and graphic designer into the realm of website design. Creating my website took much longer than I had anticipated, but it was worth it! With a great looking and functional website, I was able to attract more customers and start my customer relationships on the right foot.  After that first project, I was hooked on website design.  My friends saw my work and my passion and started hiring me to create websites for them, and my business expanded from there.  I’ve been creating and coding websites for six years now and I have loved keeping up with the latest web-style trends and incorporating the most current tech and functionality into my designs.

Let me use my design training and ninja coding knowledge to help your business make a great first impression.

A great website can change Your business –

Increased traffic plus increased visitor conversion on your website means astounding growth in your business. I do all the online “heavy lifting” and you get to focus on what you do best, running your business and helping your clients.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS —

I’ll walk you through the process every step of the way.

Define

Every website really starts with a conversation. We will talk about your business, your goals and your audience. During this first phase we focus on defining your goals and your messaging so that the website created will best fit your needs.

DEVELOP

Next, we will work through my development process. I get to work laying out a customer journey and setting up the technical parts of your website.  Then I’ll get to work developing a custom website for you using research-based conversion principles that best convert your website visitors into customers.

DEPLOY

Your website goes live to the world!  Enjoy your new site, or add on one of our SEO optimization packs and we will make sure that Google finds your site.  Add on a maintenance package or a conversion tracking package that continues to optimize your site based on visitor behavior.
