(some of the things I actually had to learn to do)
Responsive Web Design
Your website should be optimized for all devices: desktop, laptop computers, tablets and smartphones. By using Responsive Web Design (RWD), we can allow the site to automatically adapt to the user's device, ensuring a good user experience regardless of the device used. A site optimized for mobile will also help you rank better in search engines.
WordPress is my Content Management System of choice. It's very easy to use, implement and customize. I always recommend it to my clients so they can easily update their sites after launch. If you are not familir with WordPress, I recommend you watch this video from WP101. I can develop custom themes, install plugins, or customize pre-made themes. Are you interested in a WordPress site?

Social media is a very affordable way to promote your business. Networks such as Twitter and Facebook can help you drive traffic to your website. Facebook ads are a great way to target an specific audience. Twitter offers you a quick way to keep your customers informed about your new products and promotions. My social media services range from customizing your Facebook page and integrating websites with social media widgets to developing custom applications and setting up advertising campaigns.
E-Newsletters can also be a very cost-effective way to bring in more business or to stay visible. I recommend using a third party service such as MailChimp to manage your e-newsletter campaigns. These services provide you with great reporting tools that help you assess how your campaigns are doing. It's important that you have a unique, customized look for your newsletters so they can be appealing to your audience. I can create a custom design for you and help you set up your account with a third party provider.
I specialize in PHP, MySQL and jQuery. I've done a wide range of custom programming, including contact forms, application forms, database integration and content management systems. If you are in need of some custom programming, contact me so we can discuss it.
