Local Phoenix Website Services and Support. Done in a Flash.

HI, I’m Shelby!

I’m a Phoenix native with a passion for helping small, local businesses and creatives flourish the best way I can: with a kick-ass website and masterful SEO. I’ve had an obsession with everything about computers since my early teenage years, which lead me to formally study such subjects as computer programming, networking, and website design in my adult life. After spending a few years mastering the world of pizza-chain restaurant management, I decided it was time to go back to school and pursue my goals in the tech field.

When I am not studying or working, you can find me at a local brewery or restaurant somewhere around the valley, or taking it easy at home with Fred the pitbull, enjoying my favorite comedy podcasts and TV shows.

Services

From beginning to end, I’ll go over every detail to present you with most visually-striking, relevant, and cost-effective solution to get your business or artistic venture seen online.

You have enough to worry about; leave the website maintenance to me. I can keep your website looking good, updated, and running fast, whether it was my creation or not.

Already have a website, but are in a panic because something suddenly stopped working or doesn’t look quite right? Broken images? White screen of death? Database connection error? DNS, domain, SSL, or email issues? Not a problem! I tackle any website disaster, big small or scary; I love a challenge.

Lease is up at your current host, or just ready to leave? Migrating a website can be scary stuff. You want to make sure it’s done right. Losing all the work you’ve done or paid for due to a silly migration error could be devastating. Let me pack it up and move it for you!

Have a website already but it just needs a little face lift? No problem! In addition to building websites, I also love renovating them! Clean up your homepage, make your website look good on any device, update your submission forms. Whatever digital spring cleaning you need, I got you!

Did you know that 51% of smartphone users have discovered a new company or product while conducting a search on their smartphone? Or that 71% of all website clicks come from the first page of Google, while second page links only get 6%? If you’re not using SEO best practices, you’re losing a valuable opportunity to build your brand awareness. SEO can be hard to grasp the lingo for, let alone learn, but I can help you go from the second-page graveyard, to being a top-page result!

Need an answer fast? Don’t get stuck on hold for hours with customer service. I am more than happy to help and answer all your questions. Additionally, I can train you to take care of things on your own. I have extensive customer service experience in explaining IT nerd stuff to people of all skill levels and backgrounds over the phone.

The Process

It’s 2019, and you need a website. It’s not enough to make a Facebook page with a generic layout and be done with it, you need a landing page as unique and dynamic as your business. That’s where I can help. I work closely with you to find the best layout and design for your business. Whether you’re promoting your competitive cake decorations or launching your new indie-metal-prog-rock album, I will make your website unique to you and your business. Leave the HTML to me; I get all the dirty techy bits done so you can focus on running your business.

Consultation

The most important part of your website is the person behind it; you! Your landing page is your first impression, so let’s make sure it shows the best side of you and your business. During a brief phone or email consultation, we’ll go over what your goals for your business are, how much of an internet presence your brand already has, and any other details you think will make your site stand out!

Strategy

This is when we’ll build your website’s game plan. We’ll take a look at what your competitors are working with and improve on their strategies, research the keywords and phrases that will being your site to the top of Google results and your in front of new eyes.

Design + Development

Now comes the hardest part - and the part you don’t have to worry about! I’ll take care of all the behind the scenes work that will make your website sparkle and shine, ensuring a perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics. You just sit back, relax, and get ready for the most exciting step.

Launch

Before we roll out the digital red carpet, I’ll send you a final copy for approval, and once we’ve double (and triple… and quadruple) checked that everything is in order, your site will go live, and you can watch the hits pour in!

Continued Support

Let’s keep in touch! We can discuss plans for scheduled maintenance, go over any questions or troubleshoot any issues you may be having with your website. Building the site is only half the battle; keeping it updated and running smoothly is the rest. I'll be there for you through all if it.

Paperchase Films

Portfolio + Projects

PaperChase films is an independent film company based in Los Angeles, California. This was my first big project. I built this site in WordPress from the ground, up. This is my baby. I started working with PaperChase in January of 2018 and am currently still working with them to add new films and press content as it is published, as well as adjust the site’s design and content organization as needed. Throughout development, my duties with PaperChase included:

  • Installing, and configuring the desired WordPress theme
  • Installing and configuring necessary plugins to achieve the desired appearance and functionality
  • Configuring the SSL certificate
  • Editing images when needed
  • Modifying configuration files and adding custom HTML and CSS code

Very recently, the clients and I agreed that it was time to move hosts to resolve some performance issues we were experiencing. In one weekend, I migrated the site to its new home and it’s now running smooth as ever. 

Royal Salon is full-service salon located in Peoria, Arizona. I worked on this website in November of 2017 and have since given control of the site solely to the business owner. The client already had a website created in GoDaddy’s proprietary website builder, but needed a complete facelift done on it. This included:

  • Editing images to fit properly where needed
  • Resizing and aligning content tables
  • Updating and enhancing copy on each page
  • Ensuring accurate data on Google Analytics
  • Inserting strategic keywords on the site and behind the scenes to enhance SEO
