Web Design

Your business is the best, so let’s show the rest of the world you are the ideal in their mind. Don’t just follow others -– be the leader. When you also add branding into the mix, your website relaunch will be more than a redesign – it will truly reflect the leader you are. That’s how your brand becomes memorable – not just well known.

Claim Your Territory in Your Clients' Minds

It's not what you say, but

matters.

Design, color, and typography are what you're saying beyond the words you're using. Often, they can contradict the words. That's where the confusion begins. Instead of confusing, you need to be clear so you can stake your claim to that spot in your clients' minds for what you offer.

Still Sniffing Around?

That's okay!

Sometimes we’re unsure of new experiences. Let’s get you started with these guides.

  • Web Terms Demystified

    Learn the terms used in designing and developing a website in order to fully understand what you need and don't need.

  • Web Maintenance Checklist

    How to maintain a safe and secure site with a fail safe – a full backup!

  • Ideal Client Avatar

    Empathize with your clients by understanding who they are.

"Am I standing out as the trusted expert?"

Been there!

Which of these feel like you?

  • I'm tired of looking inexperienced and boring.

    I’ve been in this line of work for decades. My branding and website don't convey my level of expertise or rates.

  • People don’t know what I do for a living.

    I have difficulty explaining to people what I offer and how I’m different.

  • How do I transition from executive to entrepreneur?

    I used to work with my colleagues, but now I’m a business owner. How can I change that perception?

  • I'm not getting any referrals.

    My clients and peers don’t refer me to others. Why is this?
