A little about what I do
CurlyHost helps businesses, artisans, and nonprofits find their voice on the web. We not only get your site online, but we also become your biggest cheerleader in the success of your new venture. We work with business owners, designers and project managers to find the best way to translate your message to a website. We help you make sense of your website through face to face or online tutorials, teaching you how to support your WordPress site.
And that’s what makes us different from other web design and development firms and freelancers out there. We don’t babysit your site and charge you for every update. We want to allow you to make changes to your site all by yourself. We will sit down with you for either face to face or online tutorials to make sure you know how to support and update your site. Within no time you will become your own website guru.
WordPress has been around since 2001 and powers around one of every 6 websites on the Internet. WordPress sites are ideal due to their usability for first time users and flexibility for developers. You can carry out any vision you might have about your website. Best of all, because it’s an open source platform, you can do a simple search to find a treasure trove of online tutorials. Learning a few basics of WordPress is not that bad once you have a few tools and have someone to help you guide you on your way.
My prices vary depending on how much content and theme customization you need. Do you also need a logo? Images re-formatted? Body copy written? An online store created? Yep, I can help with that too. Or, if your budget is smaller, I can just do the tutorial part of my plan and help you build your own website.
I love a good story; plot twists, surprise endings and all. The process of telling a good story is difficult at first; turning random information into a compelling read. But that’s my favorite part. I love learning about different business cultures and technical systems. I love learning how a company differs from its competition and how we can highlight why a client should choose them. After we figure out what story your company is telling, we can then create an amazing website to match.
Your business has a story, your art has a story, your nonprofit has a story, your music has a story, your idea has a story and I want to tell it. We can make that happen through a killer website, consistent social media, and a marketing strategy. But first we need to get to know each other. So, contact me, let’s grab some coffee, and chat about what kind of story your company is telling.
Are you a business owner looking for a web solution that will grow with you? With my one on one tutorials and guidance, your website will become something you can update and change as time goes on. You are in the driver’s seat and get to control your website’s fate.
Are you designing a website for a client but don’t have a developer to make your design come alive? You will create the relationship with your client and I will turn your design into a website. We will collaborate on their desired functionality and how best to design for that.
Are you a project manager whose job is connecting designers and developers with your client? You will develop the relationship with your client and your favorite designer and I will turn that into a website. We will work together on desired functionality.
