Web Design by Jeff Maciejko
So you need a website
You’re a small business owner who is ready to start advertising or selling online. You’re a non-profit with an old website that needs updating. You’ve been in business for a while, and you’ve got a website, but it isn’t working.
Whatever the reason, you need a website built, and you want the process to be as painless as possible. Maybe you don’t really know where to start, and you need someone who can walk you through the whole process. Maybe you’ve got a good idea what you want and you need someone to take your vision and make it happen.
You’re in luck. My name is Jeff Maciejko (muh · jay · ko), I make beautiful, mobile-ready, easy-to-use, dynamic WordPress websites. My secret lair is on Vancouver Island, and I work with people all over Western Canada, from Victoria and the Cowichan Valley to Calgary, Alberta.
It can be easy
Websites are complex, but that doesn’t mean building them has to be. Entrepreneurs and non-profits wear a lot of hats, and I make sure “website programmer” isn’t one of them.
I follow a simple, step-by-step process that is easy to understand, easy to follow, and keeps things manageable.
Your business has goals, and so will your website. I help you identify what those goals are and together we design a blueprint to meet them.
If you’ve never done this before, don’t fear. You don’t have to have technical knowledge or prior experience. I will translate your business needs into a design that is easy to navigate, fits your style, and achieves your goals.
Once we’ve got the site layout, it’s time to put pen to paper, so to speak. A site mockup makes it easy to see all elements that require copy, and gives you something solid to go off when you begin.
Not sure what to say? I can point you in the right direction with guidance, templates and examples for when you’re drawing a blank.
With plan in hand, I dive in and do all of the heavy lifting. I use industry standard tools and practices to build your site, with clean code, multiple security measures, automatic backups and an emphasis on useability for you.
This is a transparent process, and you will be very happy with the results.
