In a Nutshell
The bulletin board on my home page is reminiscent of a time when we could easily keep track of things. If you thought you might forget something you just tacked up a note. Nowadays, most of us can’t get away with that, especially people in business. We have our mobile phones ringing, texts coming in, reminders beeping at us, places to get to, and the like. One thing you probably don’t want to be worrying about is your website, online presence, uploading photos, and all that. What I can do is build you a website in WordPress, make it mobile friendly and maintain it for you, or you can do the upkeep yourself. We can do up a Facebook page, Flickr photo account, and YouTube channel if you need that for your business as well.
WordPress is an open source Content Management System (CMS), often used as a blog publishing application. What does that mean to you the client? It means once I have built your website you can do your own content management. I will teach you and you will be able to do updates to your site without knowing any HTML or CSS code. It’s not as hard as you may think. You save money if you don’t have to pay a web designer every time you want to change something on your site. If you don’t want to do it yourself, you may have an employee that’s a keener. If not, no problem I will gladly do your site updates for you. Either way, WordPress is definitely the way to go these days. You can even make posts from your iPhone!
You might be thinking “How did this happen, do I have to be worrying about my social media and web presence? I’m too busy running my business to give any attention to that stuff.” Well you may just be right this time. I will make you a custom page to go with your website for Facebook, Google+, or YouTube. I will do the maintenance for you if you don’t want to do it yourself. Everything and everyone is connected, don’t be left in the dust.
I’ve made webpages for both of my folks who I’ve lost recently. I have included a video I made, the eulogy, obituary, and photos. This is a great memorial to have especially for close members of the family and those who couldn’t make it to the celebration of life. If you’re interested let me know, I’ll offer you a reasonable price to put it all together because I believe it’s important.
If you are wanting a personalized video of family, babies, pets, or simply a video slideshow of photos or a combination of stills and video footage, I can make one for you, complete with transitions and soundtrack of your choice. I can also burn it to a DVD for playback in your device. Many file types are available for playback on any device. Here are just a few I’ve done: I made one for my Mom’s celebration of life: Forever In Our Hearts and one for my Dad’s celebration of life: We All Love You Dad. And here’s one I made in college: Hootie’s Workday.
Blog and Photo Galleries
Have you got things you want to say? Do you have pictures and videos that you want to share? Would you like to have a blog to make that happen, but you just don’t know where to start? I can get you set up with a WordPress blog where you can easily upload photos and videos. We can set up a Flickr account to go along with it and you can have all your photos kept safe online. With Flickr YOU own your photos, not them.
