MRB Media did a wonderful job on my web site. I am very happy with the design and how it turned out. I have them design all my marketing material also. I am particularly impressed with their continued help and support. If I ever notice something funny or a broken link on my web site I just shoot them an email with the issue and Boom! It's fixed.

http://tack.bz/1C4XV I'm a fan! I heard of this service speak last Friday. That's not the first time I've heard about improving your business's online reputation, but it is the first time I was not overwhelmed. I wrote a short list of things to do for my business's reputation and I'm doing them! Easy. Camille Darf http://tack.bz/1BDJD I have had several web design "masters" over the years who have created/updated my websites. It was ALWAYS a painful hurry up and wait situation. Wait for the work to be completed. Wait for mistakes to be corrected. Wait for everything. I felt trapped and helpless. This service is different and I GIVE THEM AN A+!!!! Dawn Liota http://tack.bz/1BWb7 I have been working with this service for nearly a year and every time that I consult with them they always deliver above expectations! The thing that I love most is that Eric is a wealth of information and I always walk away enriched, enthused and ready to take my business to another level. Randy Tickler http://tack.bz/1BWex This service provides a very professional and personal service to their clients. They not only design the website, they also handle the technical aspects of purchasing a URL, getting the blog set up with the free downloads for those who subscribe to their service. Sandy Vageena http://tack.bz/1BWi1 Care, and the best attention you can receive is what you can expect from this service. Personal attention that will help you discover your voice and work to support your goal today, tomorrow and into the future. I have personally worked with Eric and know he will do everything possible to help you along your path and make life easier for any project you are working on. Russ Joust http://tack.bz/1BWkc Amber and Eric are such a pleasure to work with. Eric has such attention to detail and has helped guide me with plugins and other WordPress issues. Amber is always a good source for helping me create content. Thank you for taking care of my website. Cynthia Apple http://tack.bz/1BWm5 Wow Eric and his team gave me so many marketing tips to help me grow my business it's taken me a month to implement them all! Thanks Eric! You are SUPER awesome! Jack Smith http://tack.bz/1BWoz Had several questions regarding on-line marketing that were answered quickly with a focus on what I wanted - the end result. Loved the caring and the interest in helping me succeed. Red Smith http://tack.bz/1BWtU Recently I had the privilege of hearing Eric speak at the chamber of commerce. I have known him for several years now. It is obvious that Eric is very passionate about helping others grow their businesses. I know how tirelessly he works, with her partner Amber, to offer realistic, reasonable solutions to small business issues ... making it possible to navigate the unsure waters of the internet, web design and social media ... with a "painted path" to visibility and growth. Eric makes it seem so easy. He instills confidence in people, even technically challenged people like myself, to give something a try. To let go of the fear of the unknown and just try something new

John and I collaborated on artwork and web design for several websites. Every project came out amazingly well, in large part thanks to John's creativity and attention to detail. He is very responsive and takes pride in his work. John patiently taught me how to use a few tools in Adobe Photoshop I had not yet become familiar with as well. I highly recommend L Design and Development's work.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Why should you hire a web designer?

    Your website is often the first thing your customers see when they’re searching for a business or service on the web. As the face of your organization, your website needs to be attractive and functional, offering the latest features that users now expect. To plan and design a site that both reflects your company’s mission and values and appeals to customers takes a professional web designer. While free online services can help people set up websites, web designers can provide a unique solution made specifically to meet customers’ personal or business needs.

    Most web designers offer a wide variety of services to make your website aesthetically pleasing and easy to use. Modern web design must be mobile-friendly and scalable, capable of expanding to include a blog, social media sites, and even video streaming; web designers are experts at integrating various web technologies. They can build the site, add functionality, test it, launch it on a live server, and track and maintain its performance.

    In addition to web design and graphic design, some web design providers also offer development and security services, including search engine optimization (SEO), social media marketing and management, logo design, site maintenance, domain registration and hosting, protection against malware, and digital marketing and content services.

    What should you look for in a website designer?

    A professional web designer creates the look and feel of your website, collaborating with you to choose colors, creating logos and other branding materials, establishing page layouts, and creating sample pages. An important part of web design is making sure the site is functional, meets your goals, and is easy for users to navigate. When you’re looking to hire a web designer, start by reviewing the person’s portfolio. Look for samples of work that match what you envision for your website, including experience building the types of pages or features you want. Make sure the web designer is familiar with your industry and understands both industry trends and web design trends — an old-fashioned or out-of-touch site will turn customers away rather than intrigue them.

    Because web designers tend to work as freelancers on a project basis, they must be excellent communicators, willing to manage their own work, and available on your schedule. Some critical skills, such as working collaboratively and responding enthusiastically to feedback, aren’t core to good web design, but make working with a web designer much easier. Finally, look for a web designer who has cross-functional knowledge, such as understanding marketing and conversion rate optimization in addition to web design.

    How much do web designers charge?

    The average cost for hiring a web designer varies greatly depending on the scope of the work, which may range from building a site from scratch to rebranding an existing one, as well as the amount of content and graphics the designer will create. In general, the more complex the project, the more time the design agency will have to spend. Because web designers often work on an hourly basis, the longer the project, the higher the costs; you can count on the web designer spending at minimum 10 hours to create a very basic website with just a handful of pages with few elements. Prices also depend on the designer’s skill set, the process, and the company’s rates. In general, the national average cost for a basic website package starts at $500, but a customized website can cost as much as $2,000 or more. Here are typical average hourly rates, broken out by the complexity of the work:

    • Basic layout and user interface: $15-$40 per hour
    • Content management system design: $20-$50 per hour
    • Custom website design with custom code: $45-$75 per hour

    How do you hire a web designer?

    You’ve determined that the best way to create a professional, modern, mobile-friendly new website is to hire a professional web designer to build it. To hire the best person for the job — and to get the web design that best fits your company’s identity — it’s important to ask a few key questions:

    • What’s the scope of the work? Will the website be basic with just a few pages about your company, its services, and contact information? Or will it also have an e-commerce section for online shopping, a blog, or content for visitors to download? Before you hire a web designer, make sure you have a thorough, specific list of the components you must have the designer include in the web design.
    • What do you want your website to look like? Consider websites that are similar to the one you’d like to build, ideally in the same industry or serving similar types of customers. Build a set of examples of types of pages, design aspects, and website features that you can hand off to the web designer — the person you hire should have experience creating websites with the features you want. If they don’t have the right skill set, they’re not the right pro for you.
    • What’s the web designer’s start-to-finish process? What will the final deliverable be? Before you hire someone, make sure their availability works with your timeline and that their process meets your expectations. Most important is finding a web designer who will work collaboratively with you to create a successful online presence.

    What do you look for in a web design company?

    The web design company you choose must be able to interpret your company’s mission and identity and turn it into an appealing website that connects with potential customers. They must help you reach your target audience and meet your business goals. A web design agency should have on staff both talented web designers, with fresh ideas and extensive technical and creative skills, and a marketing team that knows how to drive traffic to your site, encourage visitor engagement, and convert visitors into customers. Web designers should be able to build in search optimization and integrate your site with a content management system and e-commerce tools. Look, too, for a website design company that understands responsive design and can optimize your website for mobile devices and desktop browsers. The right web design company understand current design and website trends, has experience building sites in a variety of industries (not just yours), and has an expansive portfolio of live websites. Finally, don’t simply hire the cheapest bidder — in web design, as in all things, you get what you pay for.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
