About Website Design with Christopher Ross

Small business website design, from local newspapers and colleges, to community based businesses, have been the focus of my website design services for over 20 years. I build cost effective marketing solutions, designed to generate leads and make sales for small businesses.

Why we create websites with WordPress

WordPress is very interactive, and designed for low technology users to quickly update and maintain their websites. While we’re always happy to manage and update content for small business website owners, each website we build is designed to be fully owned, and managed, by the small business owners we create websites for.

Do your websites come with training?

Each website we build for a small business comes with training, and manuals, on updating and maintaining your website, as well as an invitation to local WordPress meetups and special events called WordCamps in your area. We do our best to provide not only an amazing website for small business owners, but also a wonderful experience for the people managing websites.

Do your websites come with hosting?

We learnt a long time ago that many small business owners lack the technical expertise to manage many aspects of their online marketing, including website hosting. If your team has the in-house knowledge to register domain names and run website servers, we’re happy to offer support services where needed. Otherwise, we’re capable of proving information on website hosting for your business website.

Do your websites come with search engine optimization?

Search engine optimization (SEO) isn’t a magic bullet, or a one time thing but yes, all of the websites we build are designed to encompass the best practices possible for search engine optimization from social media cards for Twitter and Facebook, to Google’s expected schema, sitemaps, XML feeds, favicons, SSL certificates, and hosting.

SEO is a complex, and powerful tool for creating local organic traffic to your website, and as unique as your individual website needs.

Do you offer free website quotes?
