Everyone will tell you that you need a website for your business.
Why? Because that’s where your customers go to find everything from laundromats to pediatricians. I’ll tell you you need a website, but then I’m a web designer, so you’ll want to ask around.
It seems that everyone has a website these days. It’s no longer enough to just have a website.
You have to have a website that works. And a Plan. A clever plan*.
I’ve been designing websites since 1999. I got my start in web design creating web pages for my business group when I worked at Intel (the computer chip company, not the government agency listening in on your phone calls). I also discovered that working in html and css is fun! That’s right, I said fun.
I started my web design company, Pint Sized Sites, in 2011 to help small businesses get their business on the internet. What I’ve discovered is that most small business owners simply don’t have the time or the know how to make the best use of those websites. They end up missing out on a lot of potential business.
As a web designer, I hate seeing a good website go to waste. With that in mind, I expanded my offerings to include everything I’ve learned about internet marketing.
I want you to be successful.
There is nothing that tickles me more than seeing a client’s business take off. Seeing them busy and booked solid makes me smile.
So what else can I tell you about myself?
I’m a geek. I have a degree in electrical engineering. I watch Star Trek reruns, play video games (I bought an Xbox 360 just to play Oblivion), and have read every Isaac Asimov book I could find. Some people knit, I write web code.
Ok, I knit a little, too. But, mostly I crochet and I will continue to do so just to mock all of my knitty friends.
I love cats and hiking, but not hiking with cats. I love indoor rock climbing. Climbing outdoors is great fun, too, but a rather harrowing experience with a tarantula kind of shook me up.
As for the name Pint Sized? I picked the name for two reasons:
- At 5 feet 0 inches tall, I’m “pint sized” myself.
- I’m out to help small, pint sized, businesses
