Website design is a very important part of your business. Today the internet has a large amount of unappealing designs with a poor user experience. When you research 

web

and plan your design for user experience, your site passes those that have not. This puts your business ahead by doing one thing: research.

This leads me to my title in the design world. I am a User Experience Designer who specializes in Web Site Design.

What is a User Experience Designer? I study the psychology behind design and how that affects the user. I know the design principles that make a successful design. Yet, I also pay attention to what your targeted audience needs from the design.

A very important aspect of design is knowing how your design affects the consumer. I do this by asking the proper questions to get to know your targeted audience. Once we establish you targeted audience, we plan your site's map. Then we prototype the design. I research carefully about the site's colors, typography, photos, and layout. All these aspects play into how someone navigates your web site.

The big difference between a User Experience Designer and a Web Designer is that I focus on the user and how the overall design affects them.

I make sure your vision for your site translates to a design that will work for both you and your audience.

Get a responsive design. Responsiveness in web design simply means your site will look great across mobile and desktop platforms. 

I work with your budget. 

Starting a new business can be expensive. I have a lot of different packages available to help you launch your online business without breaking the bank. 

Receive a great design that emphasizes User Experience. The most overlooked part of a design is creating a seamless user experience. Hiring a user experience designer is how you can ensure your site performs just as well as it looks.

Engine

The big question:

What is Search Engine Optimization?

Search Engine Optimization (also known as SEO) is the process of making your website rank on search engines such as Google, Bing, or Yahoo. There are millions of websites out there. How can you be sure people are able to find yours among so many others? There is a scientific process that involves a lot of research and planning to achieve this.

Many believe it is as simple of placing keywords throughout your site. Though that is a small aspect of SEO, it is far from the whole picture. Search Engine's have an algorithm that reads websites and ranks them. The ranking takes into account the readability of your site along with keywords.

The reason this becomes such a complex process is that this algorithm is always changing. So it is up to SEO experts to keep up with the constant change. Hiring an expert to perform SEO on your site helps search engine users find you among the noise.

Because SEO is a constantly changing science, this is not a one and done job. I continue to work on your website's SEO each week. Your competitors are making sure they keep up. You need to keep up too.

I work with your budget. I have numerous plans that will work for you and your business. 

I constantly update your site for SEO purposes. As I said before, SEO is a dynamic science. An ever changing science deserves constant attention. 

I am trained in SEO.

I have studied the science of SEO in a formal setting and have applied it to various web sites. I am also constantly reading up on this ever changing science. I stay on top so your site can too.

content

This talent plays an important role in search engine optimization. As we know, sprinkling keywords throughout your site is not the

Now, we need to focus on the content development. When a user comes to your site, they want to know exactly what it is you offer. The writing needs to be clean and concise. When your site is bogged down by cluttered writing, users get frustrated and navigate away from your site.

This is where strong content development comes in. It is important to hire someone who can ask the right questions about your business. The correct questions allow for proper content development right away.

Having a beautiful design attracts the user to navigate through your website. Having strong content invites them to stay on your site, and reach out to your business. This process takes time and care. Not everyone has the time to focus on the process of content development. So hire someone who has the time and the passion to create the content, so you can focus on your business.

I studied writing & editing.

I love to write and took it seriously throughout my education. I quickly advanced to the position of TA in each writing course throughout University. I took that knowledge and studied further how to write for a successful website.

I keep generating content for you. Your site will likely need regular content update. That takes time and attention to detail. That's why I keep up on it.

photography

Product photography is a different kind of art. I know we live in a world where smart phones are accompanied by higher quality digital cameras. A lot of businesses with online stores

believe photos taken with their phones will do fine. I guarantee these photos you take on your phone will not do your products justice.

This is a specific art that involves the correct lighting, background, bokeh, and much more. I am a professional photographer. I use my expertise to make sure your products look their best. The easiest way to connect to your audience is with breathtaking photos. It is also the easiest way to deter consumers if your product photos aren't professionally done. Make sure your photos aren't the reason you lose consumers.

Although I live in Colorado Springs, businesses send me their products. I take the photos, and then send them back. I then take the time to edit these photos and upload them to your site, and send you the digital copies.

I am a professional photographer.

I have worked in hospitals as a newborn photographer. I have photographed weddings. I settled on product photography as a preferred subject. 

I edit the photos. I use the Adobe Creative Suite to edit your photos for your website and social media platforms. You receive all files. 

You send the products and relax. I take care of all the photography and send the products back to you. All you have to do is check your mail.
