Mobile-optimized and easy to update
You need a fabulous site that looks fantastic and will help you grow your business or nonprofit. Of course it should look great on every computer, phone and tablet and you want to be able to make changes to it yourself. On top of that, you're working within a budget so it can't be too expensive. If that sounds about right then I can help. I build new, user-editable, mobile-friendly (aka responsive) websites that are easy to use and include everything you need - even training - in one simple package. All of my sites are created on a reliable, secure system with built-in tools for working with your site - no special software or knowledge is needed and you can even edit your site from the couch on a tablet. Pricing is based on the size of the site you need and what features you want to include.
- Hosting starts at about $10 per month - this is the "rent" we pay to have our sites online.
- Implementation starts at about $495 and varies based on the size and scope of your site - this is the cost of creating your site.
- Maintenance is available as needed or as monthly subscriptions starting at $140 - this is the cost of having me maintain your site.

"I wanted to pass on a big "thank you" from the men and women of the USS Frank Knox reunion association. All expressed deep appreciation after viewing the website and the work you did to get us up and running. I am bringing back 4+ hours of video of the older veterans and some of their stories. Once edited I think these stories will add to the site in a meaningful way. Your work is greatly appreciated. Thank you on behalf of all the Frank Knox veterans and their wives." ~ Stephen Cross, U.S.S. Frank Knox Reunion Association
