Website Design for Small Businesses

Creating websites for my clients is always an interesting process. I enjoy learning about my clients' specific business, their current and ideal customers, and what their goals are. I ask very specific questions about how they run their business and how we can improve upon that with their website. 

Clients may provide me with their own content or I can write their content for them with just some basic information. Copywriting is another service I provide to various clients, not just for websites.

Many of y clients want to manage their own website once I have created it, others like semi-annual maintenance such as changing the look over for specific holidays. For these purposes, I can design your website using beginner-friendly design programs like Wix, Squarespace and WordPress. These allow my clients to easily update their blogs or stores without my help. 

All of my clients' websites are fully equipped with basic SEO, Google Analytics integrations (if they desire so), and I can also include some specific apps such as Square and PayPal payments.

Amsterdam Garden Centre

This was a fun project which has allowed me to create some exciting features. Amsterdam Garden Centre had been in business for 40 years when I began working with them. Therefore, I provided a complete branding package for them in addition to producing their website.

The owners of this company trusted me to create a functional yet visually pleasing website. This included branding which integrated the heritage of their company and the goals of their future. Additionally, I created their tagline "Locally Owned, Locally Loved" and wrote the copy for the entire site. 

Essential aspects of this website:

  • Standard Pages (Home, About, Services etc)

  • Blog

  • Online Store

  • Gift Card Integration

  • Event Booking

  • Digital Event Videos

Throughout COVID-19 I have provided them with regular updates and features to allow them to reach customers in a digital way. ​One of these later additions was the creation of a video display so they could provide their customers with video tutorials that would normally take place in person.

Photography by Marlow

This was a unique project for a professional photographer who had been in business for 30+ years.


He had been managing his own website for several years but wanted a "facelift' in branding design, copywriting, and page layout. Additionally, I made his website mobile-friendly, which is very important. 

Many of his clients wanted to be able to book online so I created an easy to use bookings page and calendar feature. Each of the services could be booked for specific times.

For this client, I provide semi-annual services updating his website.
