We are a very small business within a small business. My work is for Compact Camping Concepts, LLC. Through that company I sometimes take on clients for web design, website rewrites, etc. I do not solicit business other than this site and word of mouth.
I taught myself everything I know about coding, designing, graphic art and SEO. I have about seven clients and that keeps me busy! Most of them are on maintenance contracts which frees up some of my time for design. This has been going on for about ten years.
My experience is in Joomla, Shopify, PrestaShop, Shopify and many other programs. My websites are all hosted on one hosting company. I have a wide swath of experience in that regard and the hosting company I use has never let me down.
WordPress is my favorite CMS, although I am not adverse to other platforms; it is a lovely set of codes that I can understand and manipulate for design. My own templates are usually used for design. I have worked with Weebly, Sitebuilder and the like but only because clients have begun there and don’t want to switch to a hosted site. Just as a side note; it is cheaper and less stressful to buy your domain and your own hosting than use a ‘free’ site builder. More here.
So if you are searching for a web designer who is flashy and has all the bells and whistles (and charges a lot), have fun! I am not that designer. I do enjoy what I do and have the freedom to pick and choose who I work with on web sites. If it looks fun, count me in! Just fill out my contact form and I’ll get back to you.
