I spent months admiring other personal wedding websites. Not until I found Brett from One Small Business LLC and him a call and that changed. I was not disappointed. I think my personal wedding website looks by far better than the others that I was looking at. Brett went above and beyond my expectations. Additionally, I was truly impressed with Brett's responsiveness and attentiveness to my questions and concerns throughout the process. Brett responded to all my emails and calls promptly. He made me feel like I was his only client. This personal touch was amazing. I would no doubt recommend Brett to anyone. One Small Business LLC SEO and web design services can't be beat!May 2, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I usually charge $50/hour to be fair to both myself and the clients (about half the going rate for quality design, marketing and SEO). It costs approximately $500 for a basic website or website upgrade, and about $1000 for an eCommerce website designed passively market itself and close sales on its own. Adding products to websites with shopping cart buttons costs between $2-$5 per product, depending on the complexity and options. I do NOT (up)charge for hosting and domain names - but rather advise the client on the purchase and give them 40% off coupons. Domain names are about $15/year with a maximum of 10 years, hosting costs about $5/month, and usually email accounts are free. Most of my competition will charge upwards of $200/month for this necessity that actually costs about $60/year.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?First I need to know the customer's goals, which are almost always generating more sales and leads. I start by getting their logo or designing a new logo, analyzing their website, social networks, directory listings, and collecting all of their company literature (anything with words about what they do or what they sell). After analyzing everything, I develop a plan to achieve their goals.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I spent 5 years producing proposals for new school construction, including: developing web sites, producing presentations, setting up trade shows. I took advanced classes in Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, and Dreamweaver, then spent the past 20 years mastering every Adobe application from Photoshop to Dreamweaver. I have designed and built about 80 websites in total, and about 50 of them were for clients. I have previous experience as a CAD drafter so i work extremely fast, accurately and efficiently.
