Small Business Websites

We can build a website for your small business that is easy for you to update. Our small business websites
are usually built on the WordPress platform and are customized for your business. We can even setup the website hosting and domain registration for you.

Repairs & Maintenance

We Fix Ugly Websites!
Do you have a website that needs a few things fixed or updated? Did you have someone really bad work on it and now it needs to be repaired? We have seen some pretty bad sites. We have worked on all kinds of sites that need to be fixed. Cleaning up sloppy and bloated code that creates the website will help it load better on visitors computers and also get better listings on search engines.

Basic HTML Websites

If you do not want anything fancy, we can build you a basic website. These sites are simple, fast and using the latest HTML and CSS standards. It can be setup so you can edit the text. We will work with you to figure out what is right.


Data is big today. We work on websites that use small or large databases. From creating to restructuring databases, we can take care of your data. We believe in streamlined databases and code to keep your website running fast. While we primarily work with MySQL, we do have experience with PostgreSQL, MS SQL and Filemaker databases.
We also can build an interface to your database to suit your needs. It can have multiple users with multiple access levels. Let us know what you need and we’ll see what we can build for you.

Blog Sites

Do you need a new blog site? Do you have an existing site that needs work? We have years of experience in working with the most popular blogging software, WordPress. We can install and set up a blog site, create custom themes, secure the site and build WordPress plugins. If you have an existing site and want to convert it to WordPress with the same or similar look, contact us.

No Contract SEO

If you have a website, you probably want people to visit it. That is why search engine optimization is important. There are many companies that specialize in Search Engine Optimization. While we do not specialize in SEO, we do basic SEO optimizations. This takes care of the basics and makes sure your site can be seen by the search engines like Google. There are no monthly contracts, but no guarantees on getting your site listed higher. If you are looking to just get the basics done, the this is for you. We will install analytics on your site, pick out keywords to target, optimize the pages using those keywords and submit your site to Google and other search engines.
