web development consulting services
Many people contact me stating that need a website, but have no idea of what they need beyond this. I provide web consulting services to help you plan the best way to approach building your website. I will walk you through the development process and provide you with a website proposal that will meet your website needs. I continue to provide consulting throughout the whole web development process.
Some web developers are just coders. You tell them what you need, they code it, deliver it, done. Often, people that contact me do not know what they need beyond “I need a website”. I provide web development consulting services to “hold your hand” through the web development process.
In the beginning I answer any questions you have about the process of how to create a website, using custom, open source or commercial software options and a ballpark budget you should expect to spend to build your website. During the web development phase, I will make suggestions and recommendations for the best way to address issues that come up.
I have worked on hundreds of WordPress websites and will provide WordPress consulting services to help you plan to build a new website or address issues on an existing WordPress website. If you want to just use my services as a WordPress consultant, that is fine. I also provide WordPress development, theme customization and WordPress maintenance services too though.
There is mixed information on the Internet about WordPress being the best way to build a website and the worst way. I will say I have seen plenty of awful WordPress websites out there that run slow and are full of security issues.
That’s not WordPress’ fault. It’s due to ignorance and neglect on your part (or your WordPress developer). I run all of my websites on WordPress and have never been hacked. You just need to know what you’re doing.
In terms of speed, running WordPress (or any other website for that matter) on a quality host is a must. Optimizing your website for it to run faster is also needed. (You can see my WordPress speed test results here.)
As a web programmer, I address technical SEO which includes code and content related website optimization (vs marketing your website by building backlinks and social media.)
Technical SEO recommendations I can make address the following:
- Unique page titles, meta tags targeting specific keywords
- Generating and submitting sitemaps
- Addressing code issues that will effect your rankings
- Creating and submitting site maps
- Making websites mobile friendly
- Improving page load time and overall website speed

What my customers say…
Adrienne Palmiere did excellent work for us. The price was great, her communication was prompt and professional, and she handled every question and concern right down to the last detail. I can actually say she made the process of overhauling my site…fun! I would recommend Adrienne Palmiere to anyone.
you have been wonderful to work with. You’ve worked wonders with our new website. We have only compliments from our internal employees to our 120 +outside sales people. I was a bit hesitant working with someone “out of state” and via “internet”- Your communication skills, quickness of reply and accuracy sure proved me wrong. Thank you!!!
