A Custom Web Design
I will handcraft a unique, uncluttered, feature-rich website that looks great on a desktop, laptop or any mobile device. I’ll create a web design that helps your visitor finds information and answers and then come back for more.

"I love the new website. It navigates easily and has a very clean, sophisticated design...classy" ~ Ann.
Easy to Customize
If you can send email, you can edit your website. The on-line editor is a word processor that saves files to your website. You can edit your site from any computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Mobile Friendly Responsive Design
Google: "Starting April 21 (2015), we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal." A responsive web design WILL affect ranking performance across a variety of devices.
A logical menu truly reflects the nature of your mission. The people visiting your website will understand your vision... and so will Google when ranking it!
What's Not Included
Backgound music on start-up ~ waiting for the fancy Flash introduction to load ~ or anything else that auto plays. It's not something you want to inflict on anyone.
"From our very first meeting, Raymond Vance understood the "look and feel' I was after for my web site. He created stunning visuals to capture my vision, and did so with incredible ease and efficiency. Working with Raymond was a joy from start to finish." ~ Molly Kavanaugh, freelance writer & owner of Lasting Words
That Come From A Clear DesignPROCESS
- Free Church Website Design
- Integrated Site Search
- Drop Down Menus
- Visitor Statistics
Since you receive a custom website, your design is not created before we meet. The free initial interview is 90 minutes of you sharing with me what you are doing. I'm there to learn about the workings of your organization, but more than that, the mood of it. What is it that makes it special to you and to others? Also to assist in branding consistency, I'll be looking to see the colors you use, the type of font you feature, and the style you have on your letterhead, your business cards, and newsletters. I will use that information to make a complementary looking website.
- Easy Page Editing
- Google Calendar
- YouTube Videos
- Home Page Slideshow
- Google Map
The design phase actually starts on a sheet of paper. Here the basic layout of the site is sketched -- and often erased or torn up and thrown away. Once all the pieces have a place and seem to logically connect, a style sheet and home page are designed to see how it looks. From there the other pages are developed to co-ordinate with the overall design. Lot's of time is spent here.

When the coding is "right," we meet again to see if it really IS right. After any corrections, the design code is transfered to your web hosting site. If you don't have a hosting site yet, we walk you through the stages of getting a domain name and a web hosting site. Once posted to your site, time is spent in integrating the content editor, and the Paypal shopping cart if you need one. We meet once more for a tutorial on how to edit the information on your site. Support continues after the site is active. It's merely an email away.
"Salem has been blessed with the work you are providing." ~ Dave.
"Your work with the website has already been phenomenal and
given us a very useful tool for outreach and in reach." ~ Pastor Bill
