How Much Does a Website Cost? 

Marketing yourself on the web is important. When someone wants to know about you, they "Google" you. Often they will ask for a web address before a business card. And many business cards are now being used as a tool to advertise a website. It only takes a second to give your card to everyone you meet and your website can say the rest! It's the perfect way to show MANY people what you do in a very short amount of time. I can setup, design and maintain an affordable site for you. If you have good computer skills, I can also teach you how to make basic changes to your own site.

How I design your site:
My websites are created using, a great online company that I’ve been using for over 10 years.
This allows me to quickly design an affordable website for you with lots of bells and whistles.
It’s owned by you, accessible to you and can be edited by you, if you choose.
