Hiring a Freelancer

What I do - and Don't Do.

I’ve heard horror stories from people contacting me with terrible past experiences of hiring a web developer online.  Web designers that can’t complete a job, they take your money and run,  or won’t give you a copy of your code and database.  I understand hesitation when you need a website and are trying to hiring someone you’ve never met face to face.

  • I require a contract - to protect the both of us.
  • I expect good communication throughout the entire project.
  • I form long term relationships with my clients.
  • I complete projects and maintenance requests quickly.
  • I'm determined and dedicated to solving problems.
  • I don't commit to any project I can not complete.
  • I don't take on more work than I have time for.
  • I don't own your code - you do.
  • I don't make excuses and not get work done.
  • I don't sell you website services you don't need.

FAQ

about hiring freelance web programmers

Most of the websites I build are some form of a content management system (CMS). Any database driven website can be considered a CMS since the content is stored in a database and managed through web based tools.  WordPress is a popular open source CMS.  I mainly build with WordPress and create custom websites with PHP/MySQL. I build everything from simple HTML sites to complex web applications.

I am an individual, not a team of freelance web programmers. When you hire me, you work with and communicate directly with only me.

The term web designer is used somewhat loosely.  It is often used to describe anyone that builds websites.  Web design implies how a website looks.  I am NOT a graphic designer. I do not design graphical elements that go on a web page. I focus on the technical side of building websites – specifically related to website code.  I build websites, and take care of all code related aspects of building a website.  Database design and development, PHP programming,

I have been working remotely from home since 2000.

I have been building websites since the late 1990’s. I worked in the corporate world on a team of web programmers before going out on my own to be come a freelance programmer in 2005.  My strengths lie in back end programming and database design and development using PHP MySql.  Problem solving and code debugging along with website security and technical SEO are other areas I have experience.

I accept checks, bank transfers, PayPal and credit cards. I send all invoices over email that include a link for you to pay securely online.

Once a final payment has been made, the code is yours.  I have had many people come to me that can not gain access to their code or database, and or their web designer is now trying to charge them excessive fees for a backup of their website.  I simply don’t work this way. 

Easy. Get in touch to start a conversation. If your project fits my skill set and we communicate well together, I will provide a quote to build your website. If you accept, I will send a contract clearly defining what will be done and and invoice for a deposit to get started.

Outsourcing to an experienced freelancer saves you time, frustration and money.

Web Development Portfolio includes PHP & MySQL websites

I’m not a graphic designer, but a web programmer. Showing you projects I have built is tricky because you can not “see” my work. I design databases and code websites to make them  function.  Database design and development, form processing, user registration and login, search engines -are examples of what I mean by function.

I partner with graphic designers to bring together what a website looks like and what it does, to build a complete and functional website.  The web designs you see in my portfolio, are not my work. How the website functions is what I am trying to communicate.

About Me

Why Partner With me?

When you hire me, you get a professional website consultant that will provide technical services to properly design, develop, host and maintain your website.

Face it, there is no “web developer store” that you can walk in to get someone to help with your website.  It can be a challenge to search for a web developer online. Search engines are cluttered with ads, and big companies monopolizing the top of the search results. Searching a global database on job boards to potentially hire someone is time consuming to say the least.

I have worked on hundreds of projects that include: custom web development, new work on existing websites, website redesigns, rebuilds, WordPress development & theme customization, website maintenance and consulting to fix website problems.
