sarahosey.com

author website

(2020) when i first came across sara (ALSO A QUEENS GAL!!!), i was a potential customer looking to purchase her book Iphigenia Murphy.  when i first got to her website, i saw there were no links to purchase the book throughout the site.  as a web developer, i kept making mental notes, and then i decided to cold call email her about improvements that could be made.  i was worried that other people were doing the same thing, so i figured i could come up with a better conversion and content flow solution.

i did a simple site style refresh and since sara wanted the front page to be the blog page, i added a fully functional sidebar and added call to actions – including buy buttons for a “latest book” slot.  i also restructured the navigation for better flow, and i created a book page with detail pages for her existing books (with MORE easy to find buy buttons).  i hope these small changes will help her in selling more books!

TATTOOSBYKELLYM.COM

tattoo artist

(2019) kelly came to me with a support email recently.  her website was broken by another developer and needed help.  under the hood, there were a lot of modifications that didn’t translate well with other plugins that existed, default wordpress settings weren’t set, no precautions were taken for existing content when a new method for editing was launched, etc. – so she trusted me to fix the issues and i made content control better for her as well.

in addition to fixing those elements, i also finally got to bring kelly’s site over to responsive design.  when i initially built her site back in 2012, that wasn’t a requirement yet and she had turned her site over to another developer by the time i asked if i could apply it.

client testimonial:

“I trusted Jessica from the very moment we spoke on the phone.  She made sure to ask every question that could paint the picture of what I wanted this website to look like. In turn, she give me exactly what I was looking for and more. I was able to tell she has a true passion for what she does and the proof is in the pudding.

Jessica helped guide me through each step of the process of choosing the overall layout, structure, styling, color scheme, strategy for posts/categories/tags and all the other design elements.  She accommodated every single question, request and anything that I can think of in a timely and more than professional manner. Her intelligence on web design is incredible and she keeps you up to date throughout the entire process.  The way she works is very organized with unlimited patience hitting every deadline that she had set.

I would highly recommend Jessica’s services to anyone looking for website design and development, refresh, restoration, support or any other services she has listed.  I wish I knew her 3 years ago, when I first had the idea of creating a website and I wouldn’t have to go through the trial and tribulations that I have gone through previously. To say the least, Jessica has created the timeless brand and website that has exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

client testimonial:

I found Jessica through a coworker, and I’m so glad she did.  I have no background in web design, and she was patient with me during the design and implementation process. During the design phase, she was patient and always responsive, full of good ideas.  She worked through various versions with me until we had it just right.  Once we locked the design, she set up a site for me that I can then edit.  The design was really intuitive and well organized. I was so happy! I had a great experience working with her, and highly recommend her!– jennifer hile
