A Design For Your Website
A successful website design includes a superior design, easy navigation and advanced Search Engine Optimization so that your website will not only be visited with optimal frequency, but will also effectively bring business to your door.

Mastering the Web With Search Engine Optimization
You might have heard the terms Search Engine Optimization, SEO or Web Mastering in your travels. SEO marketing firms and web designers will very often refer to web mastering and optimization for your website as an integral part of its success. Why? Because it is.
Web mastering, also referred to as Search Engine Optimization, is the work that allows your website to be found. Search engines will retrieve websites from search phrase requests based upon the information provided to them that will most closely match the request.
SEO marketing takes place in the build of a website. I am able to web master an existing website, and, certainly include this work in the websites that I build. As a web designer I have successfully built and web mastered many websites for businesses, here, in Vermont.
Really great Italian restaurant whose business was truly enhanced by the addition of a website.
This website build was quick and easy, includes desktop, tablet and phone version.
With advanced software from Adobe, my client also has the option of editing text and photos- with out a software download.
Located in Westfield, VT, the campground has been established for many years.
The owner, in this case, had a number of great photos and video that he compiled with the use of his Iphone. I was able to provide a reduced cost for the website build, as a result. AND- the time frame for completion of the work was certainly less, as well
Iphone photos and video are generally of good, if not, superior quality and may be easily added to a website or video for the Internet.
For the logo design, the owner asked me to use a photo of his outdoor sign and graphically image the wood carving to suit his website. The logo graphic that you see above I had fashioned from a photo of the outdoors sign.
The video for the website was a great addition. The owner was interested in showing the falls and his dog, Millie. His Iphone captured usable footage and audio, along with his narrative. I mixed the sound of the waterfalls and narrative with the background music.
The Great Outdoors
Retail websites are a lot of fun to design and build. This website is a prime example. A phone version was later added to the desktop design.
Retailers may utilize a number of advertising tools designed by the manufacturers of the products that they sell.
Retail manufacturers have, very often, produced videos of their products that may be incorporated into their retailer's websites. Meanwhile, video presentations on websites are considered to be very effective in bringing achieving results. A number of manufacturer, photos, graphics and videos were added to enhance results.
The design, overall, is purposely intended to captivate and inspire. In looking at the website, you might notice that the presentation isn't overly dramatized. Very often, simple is chic.
Text and information on this website is more than you might expect. Providing detailed information is effective in helping to bring visitors to your door. In this case, the owner had provided extensive text. Some of the photos are mine, such as the photos of Lake Willoughby, Craftsbury , farms, as well as some taken from the Newport, VT store. I have a photo stock of scenery from Northeastern Vermont that I sometimes use for my builds.
This website was originally just a desktop that I had designed and built years back.
Mobile - ready websites became very important in May of this year, as Google installed a new algorithm giving preference to mobile - ready websites on search engines. I designed a mobile ready version this year and connected the mobile to the existing desktop.
This presentation is specifically designed to present a Vermont sugar house. I provided a photo shoot for this presentation.
Simple designs for Vermont businesses tend to work very well, as the businesses tend to be modest. If I were to present local shops in the style of, for example, Macy's or Ann Taylor, new comers might be disappointed.
When I originally built the website, the sugarhouse, just 5 miles from Cabot Creamery was hoping to tap into the traffic that finds its way to the popular creamery. I optimized the website and business for that purpose. The business reaped notable results from the effort.
Located in Westfield, VT, a small Vermont town, the campground is also near the Jay Peak Resort.
I built a phone version to accompany the desktop design that I had built previously.
This build was inexpensive and quickly accomplished as photos were available on their Facebook.
The desktop includes a photo animation with buttons that I hand built using Adobe Flash. The mobile-ready version brings that animation to visitors using script.
I utilized colors and patterns in the creation of this design to present a visual "feel" of the business itself. Keep in mind that it isn't helpful to disappoint one's market. In this case, I designed this website to portray the well cared for aspects of the campground, the campsites and beautiful landscape, not only with photos, but with the overall composition itself..
An ongoing project with seasonal updates, I truly enjoy this website.
With a desktop and phone layout, All About the Cake finds a worthy presence on the Internet.
The photography includes photos from the owner, from manufacturers, such as Wilton and myself. It is a wonderful and effective collage of a multi-segmented business.
In recently uploading a desktop, tablet and phone layout- the website is making a splash.
Photos were predominantly from the owners of the restaurant. I was able to incorporate them and add a formatted menu and News Article.
A great project for a beautiful location, Perkin's Hilltop's website works well
to promote the business.
Many photos are mine and include a unique and custom desktop and phone layout. Dynamic text accompanies this design.
Enjoyed putting this together very much.
The design is custom tailored to suit the nature of the business.
Pages display the various segments of their work. and are optimizing
fairly well individually.
Layouts includes desktop, tablet and mobile ready
Advertising on the Internet
Advertising on the Internet may include a number of applications offered through Google, Bing, Facebook and You Tube. Costs are easily tailored to suit your needs AND you may target a specific market or geographic location.
You might also be interested in those annoying directories, such as, www.manta.com, www.yelp.com, www.local.yahoo.com and others that take up web optimization and sometimes place ahead of a businesses own website.
My philosophy concerning directories is that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Those directories that I've mentioned list businesses without being approached by the business owner. They are, however, eager to hear from the business owners that they list, have a button available for business owners to "Claim Your Listing" and an easy to navigate widget for business owners to enter data, including a website address, photo, and other information.
What is VERY HELPFUL is that these websites are especially optimized and will optimize your business listing further with your input. These directories will do much of the work for you... and that would be for FREE.
