A professional internet presence isn't only for big business anymore.
Entrepreneurs and artists alike are using their websites to get their message out. The problem is that you may not have the time, money or know-how to produce a polished website on your own.
As a solopreneur, I've had to figure out how to solve that very problem. After months of research to learn how, my solution is the website you're on right now.
Much of my work is with clients who are creatives. It's quite common for these independents to have too many projects going at the same time. They come to me for help to get things done.
One of these clients liked my site, and wanted one, too. I assure you that "building websites" isn't anywhere in my original business plan! But finding solutions that work for my clients is a primary mission, so I did it! One site led to another, and now I've discovered that I have a new way to feed my passion for working with clients. And I've found that there's a bit of a creative in each of us!
Shake Anderson wanted a website where he could tell more of his story. He needed a platform to house the extensive catalog of songs he has written. Fans can listen to his music and download the songs they want to own right from his site.
Remodel Marriage Ministries is another great example of a full site. Luis & Angela Hernandez started working with me as the editor of their book project. Their Marriage Under Construction books support the marriage conferences they lead. After the books were published, we added the website. The site provides both the latest information and online registration for upcoming events. Since then, we've added the Kindle version of their books. We're recently launched Spanish versions of both the books and the website, called Matrimonio En Construcción.
Another project is for a non-profit called The Garden of Giving. This organization is making a real difference in their Pennsylvania community. The Garden provides fresh eggs and produce for Monroe County's food pantries. This is a very important project, and I can recommend it if you're looking for a good cause to support.
Other sites are poet, Raiden Carr, health coach, Jennifer Palmer, author and talk show host, H. Matthew Francis, and math professor, Joyce Menges. I find myself wanting to start each introduction with, “and here’s one of my favorite sites…” It’s been wonderful working with each and every one of these sites, and they really are all my favorite!
All sites offer secure (SSL) payment for your products and services. Analytics are available, showing sales and comprehensive information about visits to your site. The average site takes about 30 days to launch.
This process doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. And it won't be if we do this together.
