Darlene Watters - website designer.
Whether you are just getting started with a new business, or your website is outdated and could use a fresh new look, I can create something that will fit your goals and your budget.
Once your website has been created, you will be able to make changes on your own. Update text, add new photos, create new articles; training is included and is ongoing. You don't need to learn the entire system at once.*
* Training is for "CMS" (content management system) only. You must have a solid understanding of how to navigate the internet, send and receive emails and manage your own operating system (i.e. Windows or Mac). Training is for one individual only.Too often I hear stories of web design projects gone wrong; a friend or relative designs a website for cheap - or free and then suddenly becomes unavailable when there is a problem. No matter how skilled someone may claim to be, if they don't work full time as a website designer, chances are they won't have time to help when you need them. This is my full-time job.
The images on this page are just a few samples of my work. Websites can be designed to your specifications, or you can just provide your content (text, photos, logo) and ask me to come up with a unique and creative idea for you. Each project is different and is priced according to your wants and needs but you can rest assured that you will be offered suggestions to keep the cost low.
When I began designing websites I made the rookie mistake of choosing a cheap host. I erroneously thought I was doing my clients a favour by setting them up on a low-cost hosting service. Although this error in judgement did not create a catastrophe for my clients, it caused me a lot of undue stress, expense and extra work.
When I design your website, I work behind the scenes to prevent problems. Although no server is error free, you can rest assured that any issues will be dealt with quickly and professionally.
While most hosting services have you sharing one server with hundreds of transient sites - all managed by people you don't know, the websites I create are hosted on a server reserved for my clients alone. This means that resources, RAM memory, storage space etc., are not being abused. The results are more reliable hosting for you. And, if there is ever a problem I am just a phone call away. You are not one in a million faceless customers who will find themselves trying to navigate through an automated telephone system when you need help. You get what you pay for as the saying goes. It costs a little more for hosting space on a dedicated server, but your website is not at risk by the hundreds of people who may have access to a server offered by typical hosting companies. To use an analogy, it's like buying a brand new car and parking it in a neighbourhood where it could be stripped bare. I offer valet parking for your website.
