    E-commerce Marketing / Site Development
    "I have worked with Monte for over two years and during that time we have launched over 30 different websites - ranging from simple 10 page sites to much more complex ones with over 100+ pages of content. Monte and his team are exceptionally talented and regardless of whatever new idea I come up with, he would always come up with an effective way to design and program it. All of the sites have clean code, wonderful CMS systems and they perform well for all search engines. I feel very fortunate to have Monte as a resource, He is clearly one of the best in his field and I will continue to send work his way.

Q&A

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
A standard pricing model is difficult to build for this type of work. It's highly dependent on the depth & scope of the project. That being said I try to work within a clients budget to deliver a product that exceeds their expectations and meets the required functionality.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I have been tinkering with developing with computer technology since circa 1986 when I received my first personal computer and began to learn. I later acquired my degree in Design & CAD/CAM technologies. I spent a number of years in the car industry working to design and model automotive parts and vehicles as well as working for a number of specialty companies as a electric wire harness designer for Nortel & Insilico Technologies. After a number of years doing freelance programming during the early days of the net I started to focus my energy on designing and developing websites for business.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have worked with all size business from small local startups to full scale corporations and Non profit organizations. Marco Island, Marriott, Courtyard, Holiday Inn, Duke Energy, SPM Resorts, Charlestowne Hotels, Smithfield Corporation, PreCast Concrete Construction., Beachside Vacation and many more.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently did a refresh & responsive design for smithfieldstation.com a large commercial hotelier & marina in Smithfield Virginia. Complete Refresh Delivered in 4 weeks.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
As with hiring any professional it's important to find someone who will take the time to listen to your needs and advise you of the available options and technologies. If I had a single recommendation it would be to work with the developer you feel most comfortable with after your initial phone discussion. There is no such thing as a 10$ an hour developer. That $10 an hour developer will cost you $100.00 an hour to have someone correct the work in the long run if they deliver the project at all. I have spent the last 20 years in continuous education mode as technology changes in the industry and have managed entire teams and subcontractors for more projects then I can count. The rates I give are reasonable and based on multiple people working on projects at a managed professional hourly rate.
