PYP Core Website Package

I absolutely love helping people share their passion with the world, and when I’m working with my clients, I bring “the all of me” to the table. When you hire me as your web developer, you are also getting a …

Creativity Specialist – I am all about creativity and love brainstorming ideas, article/site titles, tag lines, and other inspiring ideas. We’ll spend plenty of time “visioneering” what your site needs in order to reflect your branding, message, and objectives in a way that engages your visitors and entices them to take action.

Trained Life Coach – It’s inevitable that challenges will come up, and it’s very helpful to have an objective listener by your side to help you work through them.

Tech Teacher – you can learn as little or as much as you like about web design, image editing, video creation, online technologies, and more in real time by watching my computer screen as I show you the steps.

Tech Support – I’m here to help with any computer snaffoos, glitches, and hiccups that invariably come up. Email or call me anytime, even weekends! I can even create quick how-to videos on request.

Enthusiastic Partner – I can’t help but get excited working with folks on their projects. There’s something intrinsically thrilling about helping an idea or passion come to full fruition!


Optional Key Feature – “Co-creating” in real time

Instead of handing off the work to a designer, waiting for them to get the work done, and then going back and forth until everything is completed to your satisfaction (hopefully), I offer a unique opportunity to be part of the creative process by watching me put the pieces together as you provide feedback and ideas on what you like. You simply connect to my computer screen from anywhere in the world, sit back, relax, and watch your site come to life! There are significant advantages to this approach:

  1. Efficiency – cut out the back and forth game by seeing it done right the first time as you tell me what works and what doesn’t.
  2. Sense of ownership – you will have played a part in creating your site and will know that you’re getting exactly what you want … because you get to see your site come to life as you watch!
  3. Synergy – the power of two minds coming together with a single purpose – very powerful!
  4. Learn – by watching me put the pieces together, you can learn as much or as little as you like. In the very least, you’ll have a decent idea of the process, taking some of the mystery out of it.
  5. Dare I say …. it’s a lot of fun! My clients really enjoy this approach!

Note: You do not have to be there for every single step, only when you want. I am happy to handle any or all of it on my own. It’s up to you!
