Web Design

In short:

Webdesign, specifically for small businesses, professionals, artists, writers, etc. Straightforward, no nonsense and cooperative attitude. Tailor-made. Affordable. Personal approach.

Below you can read in detail about all of this.

General information:

In 2017 most, if not all, professionals will need a website. It’s your business card, shop window, stage, and portfolio. Often it is the first impression to your audience, and with the shift to smart phones and tablets it would truly be a waste to miss out on such an opportunity.

Combined with social media, traditional communication and your own network, a website is an essential part of the communication with the outside world. Just think: how often do you yourself use the internet to check on a company, product or information?

A good website adds value to your services. It increases revenues, publicity, goodwill, appreciation, client info, etc. Adding a webshop generates direct income.

Your website reflects your (corporate) identity. A website visitor has to be able to easily recognize what the website has (and you have) to offer. This means a clean layout, recognizable style, easy navigation, recent images, readable texts and as little clutter and noise as possible.

I can help you with this. My answer to questions like “What is possible?” always is “What do you want to achieve?”. Together we will describe where we want to go, and then I will get us there.
“Simplicity” and “easy-to-use” are my keywords to get us to our end goal together.

Along with web design, I can take care of setting up and organizing social media, or build a mail-list/newsletter structure. And just in case you would like me to, I can act as a web/social media editor once the project goes live. Together we can set out a strategy, make a plan, or just discuss how we can handle this.

What will you get?

You will have a website built in your (corporate) style, according to your wishes and needs, easily accessible, easy-to-update, by both you and I. Your website will be responsive, which means it works with various computer browsers, tablets and smart phones.

I like working with the WordPress CMS-interface. But other CMS-interfaces and HTML structures are possible too.

Whenever necessary, I can call on experts in many fields for most “problems” and we can then find and offer a solution.

How does this work?

A website has to offer answers to the questions Who?, What?, Where?, How?, and Why? And if possible what “it” will cost. Contents and graphics need to focus on answering those questions.

I believe in as little clutter and noise as possible. Readable, quiet and logical are all things that will show my personal touch to your website. We need to show what makes you unique and we do this by using your own photos (no stock), personal texts, etc., with an open door approach.

It is important to be original, without reinventing the wheel. (Or at least not too often.)

What will it cost?

It depends on what we are going to do. If it fits within the packages below, then you can use those prices. Usually web design is tailor-made. However, before I start, you will be provided with a quote so that both of us know what to expect. I believe that “clear”, “transparent” and “cooperative” are the answers to a successful working relationship.

Web hosting

Domain registration

Although I can (and will continue to) provide web hosting and domain registration, I have decided to no longer actively promote this service. Instead I will discuss the options with my client and look for the best solution. I work with a couple of hosting partners, all of which I can highly recommend.

International customers

Obviously, this page (and the entire English version of the website) is for the international market. I live and work in the Netherlands. Dutch is my first language, English a second language. My web hosting runs on Dutch servers, with Dutch IP addresses, or on American servers, with US based IP addresses. The IP addresses link to physical locations, which is important for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). If necessary we can always discuss a different web hosting solution. Also, because of my location, beware of the time zones; by the time California wakes up, Tal is ready for dinner.

Having said that, hello world! Let’s not worry too much about petty stuff like location, sleep and language barriers. Let’s get this thing going!
