Semi-Custom Website Design
I design clean and simple websites that focus the attention on the message, and quickly get the user to the services and products, in order to convert visitors into customers.
I customize web site designs to meet client needs using a WordPress design framework that allows for cost effective website design. My sites tend to be minimalist, and of course are small business websites in that they are generally budget friendly.
My Denver website design company offers a focus on higher search engine ranking.
Higher ranking of websites in Google search results is accomplished through optimizing the website through a process called SEO (search engine optimization).
Your small business will benefit from my Denver SEO website design services because of the site architecture, keyword planning and build-out method, and exceptional content writing.
I’ll handle the technical aspects, so you can focus on what you want presented to your customers.
Hiring a competent internet marketing company to do your website design will result in a more fluid structure to the site and friendlier looking design while achieving the back end requirements of Google and Bing search engines.
Most of my clients want me to incorporate SEO design for market placement, and content meant to convert visitors into customer – called “Conversion Optimization”.
If you have a programmer or designer that you like, yet they seem unsure of SEO practices, I can work with them to achieve your goals.
You are in the right hands using an internet marketing company like mine to handle your website development.
Websites Designed for Mobile Devices
More people view websites on mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet than on a PC.
Mobile websites are a priority with me, but more importantly, Google is now in a “mobile first” mode of showing websites in rankings.
I design new websites with this in mind. Of course I can also convert your current site to a “mobile responsive” site – which is the industry standard.
This means the single site will present well on smartphones, tablets, and desktop computers.

Blogging and Content Writing
A blog (short-speak for Web Log) is a section of your website that contains articles that are ordered sequentially on your site. Typically a blog site shows the latest articles on the homepage, whereas a business website usually relegates the blog articles to a link in the navigation menu or footer.
Blogging is a useful tool for pushing your website ranking higher in search engines. The catch is, your articles need to contain very relevant information to the overall site subjects.
If you have an existing website design that you like, I will match a blog design to the rest of your website.
The content can remain the same, or I can freshen the content and optimize it for search engines.
Made for Digital Advertising
Of course you are not obligated to have me develop a website with the goal of ranking high in search engines. Some businesses choose to forego spending money on ranking factors and rely on PPC Advertising.
My sites work integrally for internet advertising needs; they are written for high conversion of visitors into customers. And I do a lot of consulting for ad landing pages as well as creating them on my client’s sites.
Ease of use, logical layout and content writing are crucial for success. I work closely with site owners to get results.
SEO Website Cost Considerations
An SEO website costs more in the initial setup, however it is worth the extra investment in most cases.
If you don’t have a large budget, I can build your website with economy in mind.
Operating a small business myself, I know how to respect a smaller budget and work to get the most out of it.
SEO web design is even more important for small businesses trying to make a name for themselves than for larger established businesses.
SEO content is important to save you as much in future advertising costs as possible.
I am here to get your site not only looking professional but also to be useful in internet marketing. You’ll be amazed at the boost to your site visitation when you reach the first page of search results on Google and Bing.

Website Design Q & A
If you have specific questions about my services please don’t hesitate to call.
Can I make updates to my own site without contacting you each time?
Yes. I realize the importance of making your own content changes to a small business in order to save money. As a website design agency focused on small business, I build all websites this way – it is called a Content Management System.
Your company will have a login area and be able to navigate to existing pages to make changes, or to create new pages.
Website Content Management System Myth
You’ve all seen it when a company is trying to sell you a website package – “no coding required”.
What they don’t tell you is that there is “expertise required”. Now and again I need to explain to potential clients wanting website content management systems (CMS) that it is still a website that needs to be set up.
Clients are deceived by looking at a completed CMS site, or a CMS site template demo, and think it “comes out of the box” that way.
What they don’t see is that a template site for a website content management system is a set of pre-coded widgets, plugins, design elements and database ready to be applied. It is not a website that is set up and ready to go. It requires organizational planning, many decisions on settings, layout, graphics and photos, creation of pages, and population of information before it is a website.
Yes, templates can be great starting point, but don’t be deceived into thinking that a $79 template is what a website content management system costs for a finished website. It is merely one of the cost elements, just like hosting is.
For a complete site, I need to make lots of decisions, add all of your custom content, find photos, set up your navigation system, your blog, your categories, and ideally, do some search engine optimization research, which is then applied to your CMS. That means meeting time with the client, application of expertise, design time, content writing, navigational mapping, etc.
Most people who have never seen how the CMS looks upon initial upload would be a little shocked to see all that needs to be done to create a site that resembles the demo that you see. I know I was. In fact, support forums are virtually overrun with questions about “how to make the template look like the demo”.
As your Denver website designer I help with all of the setup, from loading it onto the server and making it work with the domain name you selected to making layout decisions, and customizing the logo, colors and more.
Don’t expect to know how to do it, that is why you hire an expert.
How much should I expect to pay a website designer?
Denver website design firms charge a very broad range of amounts depending on your needs. A well done, effective site in Denver could cost anywhere from $2,500 to $30,000 or more.
Most of my website designs are under $9,000.
In order to answer how much your website design will cost, a good website designer will ask you a series of questions about:
- your business operation
- your customers and who you wish to attract online
- how many distinct services you offer
- and your visibility goals
This will help determine what sections your website will need, how many pages your initial site will contain, and what features it will need.
Please keep in mind that an effective website is a marketing tool, not just an overview of your business.
When I talk about website design, I am talking about not only the aesthetic look, but also the structure and the user experience.
A simple, easy to understand product or service may require a less complex site. However, getting that site ranked in Google searches still requires certain elements.
A cheap website is an ineffective one
You can always find someone to do something cheaper. What are the historic results of that methodology? I think you know.
There is no getting around it, websites are complex and not easy to develop. They take many hours of work – and expertise.
Do you work with other website developers on Web design graphics?
Yes, if you are a webmaster and need graphics and design, I will work with you on creating graphics for your site. In addition, my services are available for helping with your SEO or advertising your sites for your clients.
I also provide SEO consulting for programmers or ecommerce website development companies for higher ranking, and PPC advertising help for enhancing advertising effectiveness.
How long does it take to build my website?
The length of time it takes depends on three primary factors:
- Am I starting from scratch or converting an existing site?
- Complexity of the site, and amount of keywords and phrases
- My current scheduled website builds
Websites can be designed and launched in as little as a week, or may take as long as a month.
