I can design a fresh new website for you or re-design an existing website, whatever you prefer. Each website built now will include the following features:
- Mobile-friendly / mobile-first web design
- Did you know that most website traffic comes from mobile devices these days? It’s usually best to focus on your mobile visitors experience first. In fact, Google even prioritizes mobile-friendly websites in search results now.
- Basic SEO implemented
- Advanced SEO services available
- Optimized for speed and performance, especially for mobile devices on a wireless network
- Social networking features, if requested
- Website analytics code for tracking key metrics useful for future development

Reasons to have a website:
- Give you or your business an online presence to attract new customers
- Track analytical data on your website such as visitor resolutions, countries, plug-ins, etc.
The websites I typically do are built and run on the WordPress platform. I take this route because it makes it very easy for you or your colleagues to take control of your data and the ability to to keep it updated without relying on me, saving you time and money!
Search Engine Optimization (“SEO”) is critical to visitors finding your website. Without effective SEO, search engines such as Google and Bing will have trouble finding your website, delays in crawling it for changes, lower rankings in search results, and much more. Each website will come with basic SEO at the time of design, but I can offer several different types of SEO with advanced capabilities:
- Website: Ensuring the website itself is capable of allowing search engines to crawl its pages and content, and eliminating any possible crawl errors that can occur.
- Localization: Ensuring your business contact info can be found and is consistently written across popular local and review-focused websites where people go to find local businesses such as Yelp, Foursquare, Facebook Places, Google Businesses, and more.
- Social Media: Ensuring data consistency across all social media profiles, adding in any missing information, and more.
- Content: Working with you to build content and a long-term game plan for adding to the content pile at a rate that is expected in your specific industry which can get the most focus on your business from various places across the web.
Ideally, all three would be worked on and improved as in most cases these are all related and help contribute to one another for the ultimate “online brand” to be found online. However, if time and money is a constraint, we can work together to determine what the best focus would be so you get the best bank for your buck. I don’t like selling something I can’t back or something a client does’t actually need, so you can expect a lot of honest advice from me to ensure you can succeed with your online adventures.

Frequently Asked Questions
The FAQ below serves as a resource for answering the common questions I receive, and to provide more information on various topics.
It is virtually unlimited. Consumption of resources must be reasonable, not impact the performance of other shared sites, and can’t be used for simply hosting backups. I’ve never personally had to limit any client’s usage of the services I provide, which is why I call it “unlimited”, but of course some limitations will apply if anything becomes unreasonable in terms of resource usage. Trust me though, you won’t be caught off guard at all, as I will know ahead of time how many resources will be used as I build or migrate an existing website.
Due to pricing and availability, the servers I operate are located in a data centre in Toronto. I’d love to get servers closer to my clients in the Metro Vancouver & Fraser Valley area but it is not financially feasible at this time, unfortunately. The location of these servers is subject to change, but my servers will always be located on Canadian soil in order to provide services to clients in the healthcare/medical field and to ensure your data is only applicable to Canadian law.
