A custom website design is now affordable for everyone
Due to recent events in the web design industry, It is now possible for every small business to have a custom website that is affordable, is a UX website design, informative, unique, easy to navigate, a lead generator and is search engine optimized (SEO). Hiring a professional designer to refresh or create your website is the best alternative. All successful businesses take investment in time and money. Allocating money up front on website design can make a huge difference in how your company is perceived by your customers later.

The cost of a new website depends on your definition of “success”
A“free website” has little upfront fees but can be costly in other ways, effecting the success of your business and brand. Allow me to explain.

Every website, whether free or paid, has set-up fees of at least $100 a year or more for a domain name and a hosting company’s help. But unfortunately, that’s where the similarities end.

A successful logo brand design must accurately represent a company as it exists today and well into the future. A well designed logo has longevity, is modern in look, unique, simple and memorable. Refreshing an existing logo can sometimes be the best solution for a company. Iconic logos can be found everywhere today, as noted below with the evolution of the Volkswagen, Starbucks, Pepsi, Yahoo! and Apple brand.
