Web Design for Metro Atlanta Small Businesses

Web Design to Kickstart Your Small Business

As a small business, it’s important to have a website that is easy to use, optimized for performance and SEO, mobile-friendly, and effective at attracting visitors to the site. That sounds like a lot, and it is, but is this affordable for a small business? It is, and that is my focus.

WordPress is My Web Design Platform of Choice

WordPress is a popular Content Management System (CMS) platform used for creating websites. There are many reasons why I love to create websites using WordPress, but here are a few highlights:

  • WordPress is widely used by 42% of the Web, and over 60 million people use it in all different industries.
  • It has easy to use and flexible design tools which allow you to create beautiful designs.
  • You can start with a basic WordPress website and extend functionality as your business grows, thanks to their over 55,000 plugins that provide specialized functions.
  • It is extremely stable and supported by a large, extremely capable WordPress community.

Small Business Web Design Features

Your website will be built on a lightweight platform that’s optimized to load fast. This is important because website speed is a search engine ranking factor.

Customized Design

You website will be custom crafted to reflect your business’s unique brand. I will work within your budget to create a professional design you’ll love.


I include initial on-site SEO to optimize webpage content. This can help improve search engine rankings so the website receives more traffic from users.

Mobile traffic is steadily growing, so a mobile-friendly website is a must have. Your website will be designed display accurately on different devices ranging from desktops to mobile phones.

  • 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.

Answers to Some Questions Your Small Business May Have

Websites are built using a variety of page builders and technologies, so I would need to examine your website before I could answer this question. I am exclusively a WordPress web designer, so if your website is already in WordPress or you are open to having it moved to WordPress, I can help you. However, if your website is poorly structured or doesn’t perform well, I would recommend my WordPress Web design Services to redesign the site, make it performance focused, and optimize it for the search engines.

All my websites include SEO best practices to improve website visibility online via the search engines. For some projects, I perform extensive keyword research to optimize the site for specified keywords.

I do not offer web hosting services, but I provide recommendations on reputable web hosting companies based on your budget. I don’t offer web hosting, because I want you to own your web hosting, not Thomson Web Services. I have worked with clients in the past who had web designers that owned or controlled access to the client’s web hosting provider, and this makes it difficult to transition to a different web designer.

This depends on the complexity and scope of a website project. In general, small websites take between four to six weeks while larger, more complex website projects require additional time. Once I know your website requirements, I can provide you with a an estimated timeframe. During the project, you will be responsible for sending me website assets (such as page content, images, etc), so delivering these items promptly helps to keep the project on schedule.

The cost of a web design project depends on the features you need for your website and overall project scope and complexity. Once we discuss your project and I know the scope of your project requirements, I can provide you with a quote for my WordPress Web Design Services. That said, my smallest projects typically start somewhere between $2,000 to $2,500.

Yes, I provide freelance web design to businesses in the metro Atlanta area and all across the US. If you are local to my area, I am happy to meet with you to discuss your project. Otherwise, we can meet online via Zoom or another video conferencing platform. Communication is very important to me, so regardless of whether you are local or not, we’ll keep in close communication during the web design project to ensure the project proceeds smoothly.

I require 50% up front in order to start a project with the remaining balance due when the website project is complete.
