Freelance Web Design

Freelance Web Design for Small Businesses

Theresa Thomson, residing in Canton, Georgia, provides freelance web design for startups and small and growing businesses in the Metro Atlanta area and beyond. My WordPress Web Design Services focus on creating attractive, well-designed websites that perform well and are solidly built. A website that performs well loads quickly, is mobile responsive, incorporates search engine optimization (SEO) best practices, and provides leads for your business. A website that is solidly built provides a strong foundation for adding new features as your business grows.

My Background

I have always loved working in the field of technology and have done so for my entire career. Over the years, I have acquired experience designing and developing software, writing business requirements, performing technical training, and managing relationships with external technology partners.

I started out working for over 20 years in software design and development for prominent high-tech companies including AT&T and Merck & Company. During my time as a programmer, I worked on a variety of large-scale software development projects and learned to code in several languages. I also worked for a time as a business analyst in an information technology (IT) department where I developed business requirements for a college’s online student management system.

My Transition to Freelance Web Design

While working in the corporate world, I had a few opportunities to do pro bono websites for a few groups at my local church. These experiences sparked my interest in web design and eventually led to the formation of Thomson Web Services, my freelance web design business. I love the creative aspect of website design, and I enjoy creating an online presence that helps my clients look great online.

My Pivot to WordPress Web Design

When I first started out in freelance web design, I created websites using the Joomla Content Management System (CMS). After awhile, I knew I needed to pivot completely to WordPress for my web design projects. I was amazed at the beautiful websites that could be built using WordPress, and I was in awe of the huge number of high quality plugins (over 54,000) that could be “plugged” into a WordPress website to provide new features and functionality. For a new business seeking startup web design or a small and growing business, this means you can start with a basic website and as your business grows, it can be extended with specialized functionality via a WordPress plugin.

As for me, I am a huge fan of WordPress and absolutely love to use it for my web design business.

Other Interests

If I’m not sitting behind my desk working on a freelance web design project, I enjoy finding time to run, cook, and work out at my local gym. I am blessed to have a wonderful family, and a crazy but adorable Pembroke Welsh Corgi named Charlie who constantly amuses our family. In fact, one of my daughters recently interned for Thomson Web Services, and I tasked her with creating a website as her final internship project. She created Corg of Borg to remind our family of our well-loved but absolutely crazy boy. Pay the website a visit, and you will see many cute pictures of Charlie and find out why we nicknamed him the “Flying Demon Dog”!

  • Ablosutely amazing comany to work with. Our website needed a new design, but also had lot of technical issues in the backend that were impacting overall technical SEO performance. Theresa first designed and launched the new website and then methodically worked with us to steadily resolve all the rechnical issues in backend. I trully appreciate the level of ownership that Theresa has for the work she does. She also work with all the interfaces (like hosting companies, plugin vendors, etc.) on our behalf. All in all, I am very happy with her support and would highly recommend for her to anybody needing web services. We still work with her and will continue to do so in future.

    I worked with Theresa to rebuild my website. She was absolutely fantastic and exceeded my expectations in so many ways. she was consultative and while she respected my requests, she gave me open feedback where appropriate. I've used offshore web design services before and am very glad that I used Thompson Web Services for my needs.
