I am a professional web designer located in Eugene, Oregon.
You may ask: “Why hire Terry?”
I offer custom internet architecture – Most free web services offer web templates with restrictions to how information is navigated and presented. Even agencies base their “web packages” off pre-coded web systems. I approach each web project as a blank html file. Together, we will find the best possible solution to organize and present your information.
I offer custom web graphics – A free website may allow you to place your logo in the header of your webpage, but a custom built website will re-enforce your identity by maximizing the impact of functional web elements. Ordinary buttons, lists, headings and backgrounds are utilized to construct strong associations with your products or services. Don’t have a logo or identity? Better, yet! I can provide exceptional illustration and graphic design services.
I offer free search engine optimization – I hand-write html code to utilize your keywords, your keyphrases and location.
I am a webmaster knowledgeable in:
- W3C Valid HTML and CSS
- WordPress Installation and Customization
- Prestashop Shopping Carts
- VLD Personals Internet Dating Software
- RSS Feeds
- Flash Animation
- Domain Name Registration
- Domain Hosting and Maintenance
- Search Engine Optimization
I charge $70 an hour and I can provide an estimate and contract at no charge. Most WordPress sites take me 15 hours to complete ($1,050). These sites usually involve a modest amount of SEO work.
I use Opensource software to construct my webpages. I’ve installed and customized the following applications with my own html templates, text and graphics.
Content Management Systems
- WordPress – A W3C valid blogging site. WordPress offers many of the same features as Drupal with minor differences.(Example)
- Helios Calendar – A browser controled calendar / time management system. The easy to read calendar displays events as links. The application also doubles as a complex newsletter generator. (Example)
- VLDpersonals – Some of the default features were: Instant chat rooms, video, audio, friends, favorites, dozens of search options and a complex events calendar. (Example)
- Google Analytics - Google lets you measure your advertising ROI as well as track your Flash, video, and social networking sites and applications. I study and understand how to analyze this data to make your website more effective.
