What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I'm a free-lance web site designer with over 10 years of experience. I have the experience to build both Flash and HTML sites ... for a lot less $$$ than design companies or firms. I have clients in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Missouri.
Three to Six page informational websites are only $400 - why would you pay more?
Please look through my portfolio at some of the many satisfied clients I've built websites for. I will work with you until we find the custom design (website) you need. I also specialize in custom Flash designs - where as many companies don't.
When building a web site for clients, it's very important to know something about the search engines (Google, Yahoo, MSN (Bing), etc...). There are literally THOUSANDS of people that claim to know the secrets on how to get your website listed on the "first page of Google". I get emails on a daily basis with these types of claims - mostly from individuals in other states.
Here is something to remember before you decide to pay someone that makes these claims:
There are NO proven techniques to get you listed on the first page! If there were, Google (and other search engines) would not be selling Pay-Per-Click advertisements (the ads you see at the very top or on the right side of the page). There definately ARE techniques that will help you get listed for free - further up and hopefully on the first page of the organic listings. But one trick that works one week, may not work the next week or month.
I've done SEO Marketing for almost 10 years now, so I know many of the techniques to get you listed organically. I will code your home page, as well as verify your website on all the major search engines.
