I am highly qualified to help you with small business web design because I am a website designer and SEO consultant who is a small business owner myself – for over 24 successful years – and I know how to get the most out of a small budget while maintaining a professional look.
Small Business Websites that Work for You
My small business website design services are perfect for startups as well as established small businesses. With a range of website design experience and a specialization of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and content writing that increases the chance for conversions, I make sites useful as well as pretty.
I work directly with corporations, sole proprietors, and individuals as well as with other web developers, graphic designers, and internet advertising professionals.
I am a Denver web designer that is affordable for small business, while producing designs, or re-design, that looks professional enough to compete with million dollar sites.
The difference between using my small business web design service versus a large ad agency is that I don’t have high overhead, and I don’t charge overcharge. So I can produce your pages for less while maintaining quality – you will be working with the owner, me.
On a Tight Budget?
Website templates can be a way for your website designer to keep costs down for your web design and get you a more affordable website. I do that, with your custom colors and logo, and a few well chosen photos or stock graphic elements to save you money.
Affordable is one thing, however, the place to skimp on costs is not on your website.
Your website can be the lifeblood of your small business and an important part of your small business advertising.
Pay per click advertising performance is closely tied to sending prospects to your website.
Resist the temptation to go with a low bid, under $1,500 for instance, because it is virtually impossible to get a well performing site, for online search results, with that small of an investment.
I make sure that even with a start-up budget you have a business web design that is search engine optimized and can grow as your budget grows, and help you to get clients with it.
As a Denver small business website designer, I provide the full range of start up needs, including domain advice, domain registration, hosting advice, concept, production, and implementation of your web site, including website copy writing, stock photo selection and procurement, and photo manipulation or retouching work, and most importantly SEO.
I believe a good online presence should load quickly, look good on mobile devices and desktop computers, be easy to navigate, be aesthetically pleasing, reflect the business it represents, be able to get ranked highly on Google, and be an invaluable aid to your marketing program.
Separating your company website from a typical site through artistic page layout and organization, the use of color, dynamic graphics, stock and enhanced photos is important. Adding interest and individuality while maintaining a clean small business web design is my intent.
Yes, I can make your existing site mobile-friendly!
Your Web Designer With SEO Expertise
I realize every website developer now says they build SEO websites. Buyer beware! Website designers have no qualms about stretching the definition of SEO to meet their needs. I’m a proven optimizer with over 12 years of experience in the field, that gets sites ranked!
Websites for Ad Conversion
In addition to ranking high, the websites I design are optimized for conversions (Conversion Rate Optimization, or CRO). If you advertise your website, through Google Ads, Microsoft Ads, or other methods, your website needs to convert viewers into customers.
I write content, and create forms and conversion tracking for advertising results. I can also help you with your ad campaign setup and management.
My services are an excellent fit for small businesses from start ups to businesses that are successful, but either need a fresh look, or new functionality.
Please note, my preferred platform of choice is developing WordPress websites. They are the most popular platform in the world, and have many advantages for small businesses.

Custom web design can get expensive. To save you money, I favor the approach of using a standard framework to begin the build of your site, which allows me to make the most of your web design budget.
Usually, when companies talk about custom website design, they are referring to the look and feel of the site. After all, most sites share the same general functionality.
By using an invisible framework, I can save you thousands of dollars on up-front development costs. My semi-custom web design solution integrates your branding seamlessly into your web design, and even enhances it.
It is very important that your site look professional as well as match your brand colors, fonts, and graphics.
Be aware that many designers are flaky and come and go frequently, so all designers are not created equal. You can be sure you get not only an internet marketing oriented designer, but also a business oriented custom web design consultant when you hire me.
I have an excellent a track record in design and marketing in Colorado since 1995!
Semi-Custom Web Development
Some of the elements that I customize for your unique website are:
- Color scheme
- Logo and brand integration
- Photography and graphics
- Page content (text and links)
- Layout of main content
- Layout of header and footer
- Layout of the sidebar (or removal of sidebar)
- Navigation menu
- Font usage
- Hosting and security
Please note that I am a website designer and digital marketing consultant, which is different than a programmer/developer.
I build websites with tools/code that are already made and in use on WordPress websites.
So basically, I can replicate things you may have seen on other sites as close as possible with pre-developed tools that are available to me. Please discuss any elements that are important to you that you have seen on another site when inquiring about a proposal.
Blog Site Design and Development
Need a Blog? Blog is a term used to express ‘Web Log’, if you are unfamiliar. I use a WordPress-based system to create custom blogs, which is the most utilized blogging software on the planet.
You will want it set up on your server (as opposed to WordPress.com server, which is their free service that cannot be ranked and does not allow use of your own domain name).
I can match the blog to the rest of your website, or, optionally, your whole website can be based around a blogging solution (which is referred to as CMS, or Content Management System).
Conveniently, I can install a pre-designed template so you can be blogging while we create the custom look you want, without interruption.
