"My website doesn't get me any business at all"
That was the response of a plumber who had his website URL displayed on the side of his moving truck when I asked him how his website was doing 13 years ago.
He’s not the only one who got nothing out of the website he had built.
It’s disheartening when I hear that business owners spend their hard-earned money on a tool they hope will help them and just have either a terrible experience getting it done and maintaining it, or it ends up actually hurting their business rather than helping.
When I first started making websites 14 years ago, it was a hobby that I started dabbling in for fun. Then, the more I did it, the more it became a passion of mine. It allowed me to live in Vietnam for three years with just some clothes and a laptop. Later, it got me a job at an exciting start-up company. I would never have had those opportunities without my web design skills.
And along the way, I met designers, copywriters, developers, and entrepreneurs who made me better at my craft and whom I can call upon when I need extra talent for a project.

Copywriter, Content Creator
Tom has been a content creator for over 17 years, gaining a million followers, and over 40 million combined views. He’s not only a viral marketing strategist but he’s also been a top-level copywriter for over eight years. When he’s not focused on digital marketing, he’s either working on his purple belt in jujitsu or playing in chess tournaments to become a grandmaster.
Designer, Quality Control
Not only is she a designer, but Carley makes sure the websites, content, and integrations we put together are actually good. She takes a step back and looks at things from a user perspective and tells us where we can improve.
And Ace…who is a very good boy
Systems Strategist, Troubleshooter
Sometimes websites and third-party applications don’t work together with just a few clicks. They need brain-power to all tie in together. Janson is one of the best at figuring out the technical side of a build while keeping the customer experience in mind.
