I meet clients either in my office or at your place of business. With over 25 years of experience in business on the Central Coast, I understand the unique challenges we face. I also understand the great opportunities in Santa Maria and would love to help you maximize sales and profitability.
Managing a marketing budget can be confusing. There are so many options to place your limited advertising dollars. Using real-world examples of sales/profit return can help clarify the best options.
Search Engine Optimization
"Build it and they will come" unfortunately does not apply to your Internet presence. You may have a compelling business with great products/services, and a great website. If nobody sees it though, it does no good. Out-of-town SEO companies constantly bombard businesses with sales pitches that can be very deceptive. I can help clarify and navigate the SEO world.
Web Site Development
I have been building websites since the late '90's. The design platform and technology is constantly evolving. The sites I build are competely compatible with different devices like desktops, laptops, phones and tablets. Choose an affordable fixed rate or affordable hourly rate. I can even design at your business in some cases so you can trust you are getting the value for your money.

If you currently have website hosting, we want to give you an update on what has been happening over the past few years regarding your Internet presence or web site. This information is a bit boring and technical, but you need to know how the Internet has evolved to take advantage of your web site since your competitors are currently making changes.
Most of our websites have been custom, hand-coded sites that rely on strict, static HTML (probably your web site). As technology and user interfacing has advanced, it became possible to produce a web site using advanced coding that took into account the device that was being used by the customer. Mobile phones and tablets use a different browser and display that made static HTML sites difficult to navigate. Today, once the user types in or clicks on a website, the browser (usually Google) can determine what device the end user is on. This is called “responsive” or mobile technology. Google and other browsers reward web sites that are responsive, ranking them higher. We used WordPress for “responsive” site design for a few years, which utilizes CMS or Content Management Systems, but this platform has increasingly become prone to hacking and virus/malware since it resides on a private server.
We are now in the process of migrating ALL of our current and future customers to a platform that is 100% responsive and resides on a secure server. Take a look at sites we manage that have made the transition:
New site - https://www.mollyspix.com
Original site - http://sixblade.com/mollyspix
Cleaning Supply Warehouse:
New site - https://www.sudsvendor.com
Original site - http://sixblade.com/sudsvendor/index.htm
We have many more examples and encourage you to make the switch to a modern platform that looks great on desktop or mobile platforms. We can keep you with your current website with no problem, but transitioning your site to the newest technology would require about 5 hours to re-design your site (depending on the size), plus purchasing hosting on the new secure server. Give me a call/email to get a quote on a new, upgraded web site.
If you have a WordPress site with us, it will be cancelled by December 31st for security reasons.
