A Webmaster Not A Designer
"Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works," --Steve Jobs
That quote by Steve Jobs is very true when it comes to web design today. Today's web design is not only about how pretty the site is.
Content is king in 2017 and marketing is what gets your name out to the people you want to connect with. Marketing is about making a connection and brand management not advertising like it was in the past. I have successfully help market semi-profesional football teams, community centers and even sports analysts.
Customers are more savvy and better educated about their purchases. Visitors to websites want an interaction, a connection with the content they are viewing. The old school shop and store owners would know about their customers, their lives and all of that. There was a connection between the store owner and the customer. Online marketing is about making that connection with your customers on a personal level, not just advertising to them.
Today's websites are about content management, page flow and interactivity. It is not necessary to spend a huge amount of money having a designer code a site. A business does not need to pay that kind of money anymore. Top media and commercial websites are now WordPress sites. Companies like The New Yorker, Variety, MTV News, The Walt Disney Company and Mercedes-Benz all use WordPress.
The Columbus Fire website is considered one of the top semi-professional football websites in the country. The website made for SportzKelz is liked by her clients and a lot of people in the sports business. Read what my clients have to say about how I have helped them bellow.
Momma Speaks 4 Me
Welcome to Mommaspeaks4me.org as my newest client. Autism is growing in our country every year. The sad thing is that the parents of children with Autism turn to outside help to take care of their loved ones when they can't. Sometimes these children are not only not cared for properly but are also attacked by these caregivers. Momma Speaks 4 Me is an organization that is working to draw attention to these problems. Visit the website here.
I needed to upgrade my website to a more professional site Brad took the reigns and made it a masterpiece.

Columbus Fire Football
I really like the website and just started promoting it to the players more to get them to share it with their friends and family as well as advising them that the site had been updated with the games listed with having the dates, times, and GPS locations if they click on the hyperlinks that you attached. The website is easy to navigate around with answering all of the questions that someone may have. THANK YOU!
The Columbus Fire Website has been a three year labor of love for me. They came to me after they did not feel that their previous webmaster was taking their needs seriously. My job was to give them an easy to navigate website that their fans could go to find information about the team, the players, their sponsors and other things.
