We Are Independent Contractors
We answer to many names, “Web People”, “Chief Technology Officer”, “Engineer”, “VP Marketing”, “Web Monkey”, “Content Strategist”, “Chief Marketing Officer”, “sunshine” -the list is long.
We’re trusted local guides and easy to work with. Everyone is paid “in-house” so you receive a single invoice. We scale resources to deliver any size project on time and on budget.
We’re communicators because your project, regardless of size will have requirements for success. We listen intently to your needs and follow a proven process and timeline. From your estimate to your final invoice we ensure your satisfaction each stop along the way.
We use the latest standards because it’s the right thing to do for persons with disabilities. It’s also true that Google rewards websites that follow standards. Pages that are WCAG 2.1 compliant get higher rankings. We keep everyone’s costs low by investing time in the details of your project early in the process.
Our clients love us for staying focused on their ROI. A recent survey of our clients found a majority to consider our services as a “cost-reduction and efficiency strategy” more than a “necessary expense”. We do what we say and we get it done.
Although I do all of the work and I am solely responsible for my work, I use the word, “we” a lot. Completing a great project on time and within budget requires a team. To create something original and complete that works great for you and your clients I’ll be using a wide range of licensed, open source software. Any special licensing will be done on your behalf. Other licenses that I pay for may be used on multiple websites to reduce costs. I use a platform built and maintained by thousands of designers and developers (WordPress). This includes themes and plugins built and licensed by third party developers.
These open source licenses create value for you, the website owner, to benefit greatly from the efforts of many in the open source community. We will use a licensed copy of WordPress. Your website and licensing will be a new business asset that can be added to your digital asset portfolio. These assets may be transferred to a new business owner should you ever decide to sell your business.
There are also temporary licenses that a new owner would need to renew monthly or annually and these are identified in price estimates when possible Certain plugins and themes that cost money to license may be necessary as you might require to add new features. I pay extra to license some plugins such as Gravity Forms and Elementor. Like every other part of your project my goal is to use the appropriate technology for your individual needs. By becoming a managed hosting client you benefit from the licenses that I pay for and use on your website.
