Front Porch Branding | Video & Photography did a TON for my business. I don't have the skills or the time to develop the skills necessary to produce a visually compelling website -- Front Porch branding helped me get that done. Additionally, our headshots were a couple years out of date and Front Porch Branding came to us and captured updated shots for the site. My business branding is now consistent and I have Front Porch Branding to thank for that.

Extremely positive experience working with Eduardo! Very professional and his work is absolutely excellent. Cannot recommend Eduardo enough - he knows his stuff and knows how to listen to the customer. Definitely will continue to do business in the future and will recommend anyone that needs logo, web desing, business card desing, etc.

Excellent, across the board. Very pleased with the service and final product. Couldn't be happier. I hired Markon Brands to fix and finalize my company website. Originally I had hired another web designer to do this, but met only with foot dragging, mediocre product, and in the end a request for more money to finish it. Out of frustration, I turned to Thumbtack and found these folks. They were very friendly, helpful. And quick. They greatly improved my website, added extras and helpful suggestions, and were a pleasure to work with. To top it off, I also view their services as an excellent value for the dollars spent. No joke, if you're looking for professional web design and marketing, look no further than this group. They can do the job quickly and are easy to work with, and their final product will exceed your expectations. Doubly so if you're a smaller company with a limited budget. Top value and great experience. Can't recommend high enough. 5 stars fully earned. Thank you Kristine and Mike!

So happy Lauren Howland was recommended to us for shooting our new website. We shot all of our new inventory in the late afternoon, with 3 models in Oregon. She was professional, warm and comfortable to work with. She was especially able to communicate great direction (**especially recommended if you need some warming to the camera lens**). I actually have a few friends I've been begging to model clothing for us - and they agreed if Lauren was the photographer. It's shown in her work, but what I was most impressed with, and what I feel a review is best used for - is her professionalism. She has a high standard for communication and respect for the art and the industry. Pay your photographers well!! They work hard to develop a craft like Lauren Howlands. 10 Stars! Can't wait to book another date with her again.

I've been a business "solopreneur" for almost a decade, and through the years, as my business has survived the recession + grown, and also with life's changes, my personal goals have changed and my business vision has shifted. In my 8th year in business, I engaged Clearways Coaching services in order to gain clarity and direction in hiring help, and delegating more so that I could focus on business operations and sales. I was burned out and emotionally exhausted from doing it all on my own for so many years, and had trouble seeing how I would be able to make (what felt like) huge changes and see results in a relatively short amount of time. Since that time, David Merino and I have been working together on a bi-weekly basis, and in each session, he starts by asking me to recall my "wins" from the previous week, and determine my agenda for the session. David asks key questions to get me thinking about where I want to put my energy in the coming week, and which resources I'll call upon for help and/or making progress. When I've gotten overwhelmed or blocked, David patiently asks an open question to get me moving again. By creating short term goals and attainable action steps that I can chip away at through the work-week, I'm able to chart small successes along the way and be mindful of my accomplishments, which further spurs me on to the next goal. David's coaching technique has been vital to the growth of my business because I've been able to tap into my power and motivation to try new methods + be intentional about carving my path. If it's not working, we adjust and redirect. I'm proud to say that through working with David, I've faced many fears and pushed my personal + business boundaries. Since 2013, I've contracted an employee to handle social media, blog-writing and project management; created/fine-tuned systems + protocols around sales and new client relationships; and analyzed marketing + sales strategies. If you're clear that you are ready for change, and you're committed to taking action, I highly recommend working with David Merino of Clearways Coaching.

Azunga Web Design and Development is my go to for all my web marketing. I've been working with Adam and the guys there for over a year. I couldn't be happier with the results. Azunga created my website and now does my search engine optimization (SEO). Over the past year I see my website traffic consistently increasing, increased sales, and much more. I'm truly happy with the service and the clear open communication that I have with Azunga. I've been with other web design and search engine optimization companies where I call or email for feedback but never hear anything back or finally get a response days later. Not with Azunga. They respond quickly to my requests, explain exactly what they are doing for me, and provide me with data to back up what exactly they are doing for my company and our website. I highly recommend using Azunga Web Design and Development.

Lou designed my logo, web site and business cards and I'm thrilled with all of them. Not only that, she was very professional and a pleasure to work with. She was able to take my relatively unspecific ideas and help me develop a look and brand that is exactly what I wanted and needed.

I hired Whit to brand PDX Metro Pages, a new community news and advertising monthly. So far he put in about 10 hours and has already nailed it. He managed to extract the look I wanted from my brain and put it on paper - perfectly executed. I'm going to keep using him as long as he's willing to put up with my ADHD!

Tanya is amazing! She goes above and beyond helping you with what you need. She has the skills to help at any stage of your process. I wanted to learn to create my own website and didn't know where to start. She equipped me with the tools and videos to walk me through it! I have never taken any computer classes and had no idea what to do. It was overwhelming before we found each other. She walked me through every step and did all the back end work for me. Amazing! Something I though would be impossible, she made possible and fun. She even reminded me to celebrate such a milestone in my business! A website is the first thing your clients see, it should show the best of who you are. Tanya made that happen. Thank you for all the many hours of help and work!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I find a good app developer?

A good app developer can help you if your company wants to build a new mobile app for customers but you don’t have an IT or development team on staff. First, decide whether you want an app made for the iPhone or Android phones or both, then start your search by finding an app developer with expertise in your chosen platform. Ask for samples of their work, such as code samples, that can be tested on open source repository sites like GitLab and GitHub. You can also interview firms that specialize in mobile app development for small companies or startups; they should be able to offer examples of different types of apps they’ve built, and are likely to have expertise in a range of technologies and platforms. Before you sign a contract, make sure to ask prospective app developers these questions:

  • What other apps have you developed? Make sure the apps in their portfolio reflect the type of work you want to have done for your company. It’s especially helpful if they understand your industry.
  • What technology and development services do you offer? Ideally, an app developer will conduct a business analysis, develop the app, perform quality testing and make sure the launch is successful.

Will you maintain the app after it’s launched? Releasing an app is only the beginning. You’ll need someone to maintain it too, releasing updates and fixing bugs.

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.

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

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.

Who builds apps?

Apps are usually built by software developers who specialize in mobile software. They may be experts in just one mobile software development language or know several, and may have expertise in front-end or back-end web development. No matter what kind of phone or tablet you carry, there are hundreds of apps for it — and new ones seem to be added to the app stores every day. Before you hire an app developer, it’s important to have specific goals for your app and a clear idea of its purpose. When your company is ready to build an app, you can hire a freelance app developer or work with an app development company that can also support the app after it’s launched. It’s important to know whether you’ll need the developer to provide ongoing maintenance and support or if your internal IT team can maintain it after its launch.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
