Are you prepared to build or refresh your website?

An expert web designer will ask many questions to determine the exact features and scope of your website. Some of these questions might be:

  • What is the main industry of your business?
  • What products or services do you sell?
  • Are you online or brick and mortar? (or both?)

  • What is the main goal of the website?

  • Do you need to design a branding kit and logo?
  • Do you have content or do we need to develop it?

  • How many pages do we really need?
  • Will there be an active blog or publishing component?

Are you considering building your website by yourself?

Stop. Don’t DIY. Let me do it for you. Or at least consult with you through the process.

Have you been wooed by Squarespace, Wix, GoDaddy or another website builder?

  • Are you a web designer?
  • Do you know what padding and margins are?
  • Do you know what a hex code is?
  • How about “div” vs “span” vs “p”?

All of these website builders tout their service as a DIY tool that anyone can use. That is true. But this is the whole truth:

Anyone can use our tool! But not anyone can make it look good!

You still need to know the basics of web design or we promise you’ll be pulling out your hair by Tuesday and dragging our name through the mud by Friday.

These DIY drag and drop website builders should also disclaim:

Every website (generally speaking) uses the same framework.

What makes websites different is their brand and the quality and focus of their content.

Do you know your brand? Do you have these assets?

Without these basics, you could theoretically build a website, but it may end up looking like WordArt from the 90s.  If you don’t know the basics of web design, like how CSS and HTML ultimately work, you are going to struggle to bring your vision to life. I can help you skip the struggle and bring it to realization.

  • Proper logo mark (not simply text)

  • Main and highlight/accent color

  • Title and body font face

Technology has brought us many great things to society, but I urge you to continue to ask yourself:

Just because we can, should we?

Website Design Process

Step 1

Discovery

I interview you to extract the necessary information about your business like company history, mission and vision, important products or services, milestones, etc.

Step 2

Website Architecture (Sitemap)

Based on the information and content collected in the discovery phase, I build an SEO and user-friendly sitemap to visually organize all of your pages in an easy to read and digest visual. This usually becomes the main menu.

Step 3

Homepage Design

The overall design of the site will be delivered with the first revision of the homepage. The rest of the pages will mimic this overall design but have their own content in the main part of the page.

Step 4

Sub Page Build Out

The rest of the website’s pages will be built out with the design from the homepage and the content provided. This includes product pages and blog posts.

Step 5

Search Optimization (SEO)

The website pages and content will be optimized for search out of the box. This does not mean you will show up #1 for “dog groomers” but it means the site will be in the best shape it can be to begin competing for ranking on Google/Bing.

Step 6

Mobile Optimization & Testing

This is the last step. All content and pages must be complete before mobile testing and optimization is performed.

Step 7

Soft Launch

We launch the site on your main domain. We ask friends and family to visit the site and test it out to try and find any last bugs we did not catch or issues with specifics operating systems, browsers or devices.

Step 8

Official Launch

We announce the launch of your website, and toast to a job well done for everyone involved. Congrats on your new web property, go get ’em. I’ll be here for anything else you may need.

Step 9

One Week Post-Launch Safety Net

You have one week from “official launch” for me to fix any issues or glaring mistakes that have been discovered at no charge. This does not include new pages or content of any kind, only fixing what was already on the site upon official launch.

Your website should reflect the character and success of your business.

Client Reviews

Recently I was looking for a web designer for a webpage that needed a make over and was fortunate to find Chad! Chad has been amazing to partner with. He understood the message I was trying to express with the website, was responsive to all of my questions, had super cool ideas to add and did all of this in a timely and affordable manner. Chad is awesome and my newly designed website is gorgeous!

Judi S., Kindness Champions (Rochester, NY)

We used Chad to build our new website. I had a very specific look I was going for, and even though I was pretty bad at articulating it, Chad nailed it. He is competent, patient and has a lot of great ideas. I will definitely use him again on future projects.

Greg Gartland, CybrMotion

Talented, responsive and understands the big picture. Chad was able to develop a sophisticated corporate site that in relatively short order was ranking top 3 organically on Google. He ask’s the right questions and crafts solutions based on your needs and desired outcome. Best bang for your buck and quality execution in a business that has a lot of fakers!

Joshua G, JG Realty

Highly recommended! We needed Chad to build a website that could allow customers to sign in for classes in sessions, pay by installment, read blogs etc… and he delivered! He went above and beyond and got our start- up on the first pages of search engines thanks to his great work with SEO. He made research to find the perfect payment portal, put my social media pages together, worked relentlessly to get our start up going. He is a great consultant and really helped when we were in doubt.

Magda Lahliti, Learn French Brooklyn

I was looking for a company/person to help me build an interactive website for my business. A website that would allow my clients to purchase subscriptions and such. After interviewing several other companies, I became disappointed in other companies lack of effort for a potential customer. Chad was very informative and knew exactly what I needed and was able to build my website to exactly how I wanted . Not only that, the website continues to grow with newer ideas thanks to Chad and his knowledge of what his customers needs and wants are. Chad is very professional, talented and skilled. He does not try to sell you on products or services that you don’t need. He keeps everything on point.

Kimberly Dolan, K.I.M. Keep It Moving (Philadelphia, PA)

Chad went above and beyond building our company’s high end website and exceeded our expectations with the final product. He is super easy to communicate with and very responsive to our many questions. He has also been a great deal of help consulting on all aspects of rebranding, marketing and SEO.

Chad has been doing our graphic and web design for over 4 years at Brooklyn Bazaar and Riis Park Beach Bazaar. His design sense is awesome and he always provides great suggestions with good insight on what will work for our biz. Always super responsive, really fast worker and all around great guy. Love ya Chad!

Aaron Broudo, Brooklyn Night Bazaar

I’ve worked with Chad for the last four months. He updated and rebuilt my website, and expanded my social media presence a thousand fold. He’s great to work with and had many creative ideas. I highly recommend working with him.
