Agency level services at a freelance price

Businesses may struggle with the costs of hiring a marketing agency to support their online communication needs, however there are other ways to achieve the same goal without unnecessary costs. To this end, I've placed my fifteen years of experience working in Web design, development and interactive marketing at the service of many clients. Below you will find the services I routinely provide to help clients achieve their business goals and creative vision.

Web Design

Creative solutions for your web identity

Every company has a unique set of communication needs. Attractive, marketing-driven designs reinforce your business identity and communicate intelligently with your target audience. Custom Web design is the best solution in most cases, but if your company is just starting out online, consider inexpensive template designs which can be modified to meet your needs and get your company online quickly!

Web Development

Web application and information architecture solutions

Web development projects ranging from the integration of third-party tools such as email list sign-up, local search engines, and blog software to custom application programming. Development solutions target your unique business problems.

WordPress Design and Development

Information Architecture and User Experience Design

Improve your visitors' experience

As part of every web project, make sure you plan with your audience in mind. Better information architecture and attention to user experience design can significantly increase the value of your site and success of your project.

Web Hosting

Economical, trusted business web hosting solutions

As part of my commitment to offering complete one-stop solutions, all of clients can benefit from flexible Web hosting packages on Linux or Windows servers. Whether you are launching a new site, need assistance setting up and configuring email accounts, or want to consult and expert in the selection of a quality Web host, I can provide support and services to your organization.

Website Maintenance

Wrangling content so you don't have to...

Your website is a primary sales and marketing arm of your company and as such it must be nurtured and maintained. Many companies lack in-house resources to keep their site fresh. Don't miss opportunities while you struggle to keep your site up-to-date—let me lend you a hand!

eCommerce Development

Shopify-based online storefronts.

Looking to move your brick-and-mortar store online? Shopify e-commerce solutions offer a long list of benefits over traditional e-commerce development. Whether you are selling a few items, or a few thousand, its simplicity and elegance is a good match for your business.

Email Marketing Solutions

Direct Email Marketing Campaigns

Compared with traditional direct mail, direct email is an extremely cost effective way to reach your target audience. By leveraging your current contact list, or developing a new permissions-based, opt-in list, you can communicate with clients and customers easily and effectively. Campaign tracking allows you to follow up with the most interested recipients.

Search Engine Optimization

Increased site traffic through better search engine placement

So you have a Web site, but is anyone visiting it? Online promotion yields measurable efforts that help your Web site gain visitors, generate leads, and become an effective part of your marketing mix. Well executed "organic" search engine optimization can drive traffic to your site.

Social Media Marketing

Stop being anti-social

Extend the reach of your business or organization. Benefit from increased customer interaction, consumer engagement, brand loyalty and more.

Search Engine Marketing

Text ad driven site traffic on a budget

So you have a Web site, and you would like to promote it? Pay-per-click text ad placement (such as Google Adwords) yields measurable campaigns that help your business gain exposure. Paid search engine placement services provide powerful tools allowing you to reach your audience, drive traffic to your Web site and develop more leads than traditional print ad placement—at a fraction of the cost.

Graphic Design

A little quality design goes a long way

Graphic design includes the creation of corporate identity elements, such as logos and stationary packages as well as print marketing materials such as advertisements, billboards, and brochures. My approach integrates high quality graphic design with targeted marketing messages—insuring your marketing is professional, attractive and compelling.

Interactive Design

Flash animation, streaming media and virtual tours

Interactive design services range from attention-grabbing Flash animations designed for powerful presentation of your key marketing messages to streaming video and audio and 360-degree panoramic photography. Used wisely, interactive design can set your online presence apart from your competition.

Banner Ad Design

Custom Online Advertising for Your Business

Banner advertising is alive and well and still a multi-billion dollar industry waiting to drive traffic to your site. We go beyond mere graphic design to offer full campaign development, ad placement, tracking and analysis services—ensuring your ROI is as large as possible.

Online Marketing

Internet, Social and Direct Email Marketing

Simply having a Website is no guarantee that potential customers and readers will find it. While all site promotion begins with a well designed and developed website containing compelling marketing-driven copy, that is merely the beginning. All successful sites are supported by online and offline marketing efforts geared to drive traffic, generate qualified leads, and entice visitors to act.


A turn of phrase in a time of need

Whether you need copy to launch a new Web site, or just freshen up existing brochures and collateral, a just quick review by a qualified professional can help. I'll be there to support you every step of the way.
