Web Development Services
I build large and small websites, design & develop web databases, code custom applications, host websites, debug issues, and more.
I have been a website programmer since the late 1990’s. I have worked for small startups and in a corporate setting. 20 years ago I started working remotely, which then snowballed into becoming a full time freelance web programmer.
Freelancing has given me the opportunity to build many different types of applications in many different industries.
My main focus is coding custom websites with PHP/MySQL and WordPress. Almost all web applications I build are a type of content management system (CMS).
With 25+ years experience in the field of website development, I make recommendations of the best solution to build your site within your budget. I am an expert problem solver with identifying and fixing website problems including; code, performance, SEO, hosting, and security issues.
I am located on the East Coast, in Virginia Beach VA. Clients hire me from all over the USA (and worldwide) to provide website development and support services remotely on their websites.
It’s just me.
My skill set focuses on the technical side of web development. This includes web programming, database design and development, debugging, technical SEO, web hosting. I do not have a team of web programmers that work for me and do not outsource and web development.
My work is also referred to as web design, but I am not a graphic designer. I do not create the graphic elements of how a website looks, but do have experience in the best ways to lay out a web page to make it logical and user friendly.
I am also not a copywriter or social media marketing expert. If you need these services, I collaborate with graphic/web designers and can make a recommendation if you need one.
Although web designer is a general term to describe anyone that builds websites, more specifically a web designer focuses on the graphic design of how a website looks. This includes creating graphic elements, defining, fonts, colors and overall layout of a website. This is creative, “right brain” work.
I am a web programmer, a coder. I build websites, by programming logic with PHP/MySQL to make them function. Work I do ranges from coding simple websites to complex web applications, fixing website problems, website maintenance, security and hosting. This is logical, “left brain” work.
Who Hires Freelancers?
I fill a niche of website development and support services for small business owners and individuals. They need web development services, but don’t have the budget to hire a web development company or full time developer. I work remotely to provide professional web development & support services as needed.
Small Business Owners
The majority of my clients are small business owners that understand the importance of a website for their business but don’t have the time to learn how to build and maintain a professional website themselves.
I provide one time, short term and long term website support services for clients. Some of my clients have been partnering with me for almost 15 years.
I partner with graphic designers and freelance web designers that provide niche services like me.
I also provide web programming support for small web design companies and marketing agencies that don’t have this skill-set in house.
By outsourcing web development, they can offer more services to their clients and grow their business.
Individuals hire me for side projects that include side hustles, hobby website or unique startup website ideas.
They have great ideas for a new business but don’t know where to start to create a website. My website consulting is invaluable to the success of their project.
