Inexpensive websites for Small Businesses. But not Cheap.
“A website is your face on the internet. Make it a good one.” No business should exist without a web presence today. Let a fellow small business owner, Me, help you get started or fix what you already have. Don’t spend thousands with a bloated agency.
You are advertising whether you know it or not. People are talking about your company. You can help guide, if not control, the perception and conversation about your company. You may be small, but that does NOT make you insignificant or powerless.
You cannot manage what you do not measure. Operating a website without data is like driving a car without a windshield. How did visitors get to your site? Where are they going once they get there? How long are they there? What’s your most popular content? All of these answers come from Analytics.
Give me a few minutes of your time to figure out the best options for your goals, budget and timeline. Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing small business owners ripped off. Lets talk on the phone, or in person. You tell me what you want, and I’ll give you the best options, whether that’s with me or not.
The conversation around social media is ubiquitous. But you have to decide for yourself how, and IF, your company should be utilizing social media. I will help you develop a plan for presenting your company on social media outlets, and determine how to interact with your current and potential customers.

For anyone that doesn’t want to read this entire post, the gist is: my last day at Columbia College is today, July 31st, 2013 and as of August 1st, 2013 I will be working for myself, full time, running my Web Design business based in Columbia, Missouri.
Windows is targeted by malicious code more frequently than Linux and Macintosh combined. Why? Because 92% of the PC’s in the world today run Windows.
WordPress powers 22% of newly activated websites and 18% of ALL websites on the internet today.
No other platform can boast that!
First, be proud and glad you have such an amazing tool to manage your website!
Second, remember you’re using a software that dominates the web, and realize you could be targeted for attacks.
Much to my shock, they were the first quotes I’ve ever put on my site by Elon Musk.
Obviously Elon Musk is the billionaire who helped found PayPal, then cashed out and started Tesla Motors and the Space X competition.
He also appeared in Iron Man 2 beside Robert Downey Jr. with one line telling Tony Stark he had a good idea for an electric jet.
Regardless, he’s an amazing entrepreneur and I hope to add several more quotes from him.
WordPress 3.5.2 was released today and you need to update your site immediately as the WordPress team fixed 12 bugs.
JitBit posted a very interesting article proclaiming A/B testing doesn’t work.
But one place we might not be as vigilant is if an email comes from a friend or acquaintance.
An SD card for you camera which syncs to your wireless network, or creates a Wi-Fi network to share directly to your phone when you’re away from home.
You’re probably used to seeing shortcodes in WordPress. Shortcodes normally look like [shortcode] or [shortcode option="option" setting="setting"]. Plugins and Themes add shortcodes to extend the functionality of WordPress. WordPress sees the square brackets and replaces what we see in the editor with some other content. Whether the shortcode is replaced with one line of text, or a very large and complex block of code depends on what WordPress is instructed to do.
The programming is very easy and the possibilities are endless.

After all, the Jetlev is around $60,000…

Fiscalini built methane digesters to process its daily harvest of cow manure and whey byproducts into biogas which powers a generator.
Instead of having Taxis compete for business with Uber, they simply want to legislate away their advantage.
Incumbents are too afraid to compete like every other business in America has to so they want law makers to do their dirty work.
Well, those law makers are ELECTED and we can let them know what we, the AMERICAN PEOPLE think about this!

While I’m not a huge poker player, I do really enjoy a good game of cards whenever a group of guys can get together.
Unfortunately, getting a group of like minded folks together to do much of anything is a scheduling nightmare!
PartyPoker.com is a great, web based, way to get a quick game going without having to fuss with calling, Facebook-ing, Twittering, Google Plus-ing or contacting a bunch of people and working out schedules.
I really like that the system is web based. There is a downloadable application, but it’s not required. This makes it easy to grab a quick game anywhere and everywhere.
Plus, the Tournaments are a cool feature for more challenging and exciting games.
Also, I like that the site isn’t limited to Texas Hold’em. There are a lot of other poker game options on the site.
It seems like Texas Hold’em got a bunch of press because of the No Limit Tournaments, but I still love the good, old fashioned Five Card Draw!
My only complaint is there is no face-to-face interaction with players, but that’s the nature of any web based game, poke or otherwise.
The biggest benefit of using an online poker platform is you don’t have to just take money from your friends and family!
While you’re probably not going to make thousands, unless you’re that awesome, at least this way you don’t have to feel bad about the $50 bucks you take.
Just the thrill of poker!

I have been doing web design professionally now for 11 years.
I strive for content and design separation using cross-browser supported HTML & CSS.
If you don’t know what that means, perfect, I’m the man for the job!
My primary focus is working with Small Businesses and Individuals who might struggle with technology and need someone who speaks English and not unintelligible “tech-speech.”
Feel free to look at my portfolio to see a list of works I’ve completed.
Small Businesses, Sole-Proprietors and Individuals do not have thou$ands$of dollar$ to blow on a website. Everyone needs a web presence today, and my goal is to provide you with that for as little money as possible. More importantly, after the job is finished I am still your man.
is just as important as before the sale. I work with all of my clients to make sure they keep their web pages updated with new content. The web is a very dynamic place and people expect to see your web site change often. You are not alone in this! My clients can send me emails with whatever they want updated. If someone struggles with anything, I’m here to assist. Most of the time I receive emails with pictures and text and the request to, “please make this look good for me.” That’s what I’m here to do for you.
I don’t want to sell you a website. I want to find the best solution for your needs.Talk is cheap, and talking to me is free! Tell me what you need, and even if I can’t help you, I’ll point you in the right direction.
