Once you have a business and a website, you need customers to find you via Google search.
Even though it was true in Field of Dreams that "if you build it, they will come," it doesn't work that way with websites.
You need to do several things to help your website be found by potential customers:
Clutch is an independent business-to-business review and rating platform that publishes content that helps millions of readers around the world. Clutch is known for its extensive collection of client reviews, data-driven reports, and agency rankings.
Getting started on Clutch will help me showcase my work and receive verified feedback from my clients.
Web Design and Development Feedback
Just recently, two of my amazing clients provided me with my first two reviews on Clutch.
Analysts from Clutch personally interviewed my clients to gather their insights regarding my website design and development projects.
These solopreneurs gave me five stars across all five criteria:
I’m genuinely grateful to have had the privilege of working with Mayfair on the Boulevard and Jessica Cheek Art.
Mayfair on the Boulevard’s review highlights how I created a functional yet modern website for her adorable boutique. Jessica Cheek Art emphasized how I created a website for her portait painting business in just 24 hours. Both clients also mentioned that their requirements were met and they were impressed by the extra effort that I put into the projects.
Such achievements wouldn’t be possible without my clients' trust and support. Their dedication to their businesses and goals inspires me to do my best as their partner.
Cheers to brighter futures!

I feel so honored to be named alongside much larger web design firms in Fort Worth, Texas as one of the top web design firms in our city.
As a freelance website designer, I am different than big design firms. We each have our own ways of helping our customers.
While the bigger firms create powerful and complex websites, along with full branding and logo design, I specialize in helping small family-owned businesses and solopreneurs get a simple website that meets their business' needs.
Along with the simpler, yet clean and clear design, the websites I create are built in Weebly, making it easy for business owners to make updates on their own later.
If you're a small business looking for a website that perfectly suits your business' needs, I'd love to talk. Give me a call or fill out the form on my Contact page and set up a time to Zoom. I'd love to help you and your business!
Take a look at five Weebly website examples
As a freelance website designer, I've chosen Weebly as my platform of choice.
Weebly is easy-to-use with its drag-and-drop builder, but the main reason I use it is because it allows me to create beautiful websites that are mobile-friendly.
Here a five examples of websites I've created in Weebly for solopreneurs and small business owners like you.
Website for a Grief Coach
If you hire me or anyone else to help you with the way Google works with your website, you don't want to give out your password. Instead, you want to add me as a User on your account.
To set up Google Analytics and add me as a user, follow these instructions:
1. Visit: https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/ and click on Start for Free.
I visited a local website today and they had a HUGE list of email addresses of previous students.
That's a great way to get your email hacked!
Spammers can use a software program called a 'bot' to search hundreds of websites looking for exposed email addresses.
I had mistakenly thought that having the email address "hidden" inside a link would be OK, but it isn't.
So what to do?
Do you want to know an easy way to drive traffic to your website?
I spent a couple hours this morning watching YouTube videos and reading posts about Google Analytics (why does it have to be so confusing?). During that research, I found a super simple tip to increase traffic to your website...
One of the hottest things happening today are side hustles!
A side hustle is a job you do on the side, usually alongside your full-time job, but it could also be alongside homeschooling your kids or something similar.
I did a little research looking for side hustle ideas. Take a look and see if any of these look interesting to you.
"I made a website myself so all the content is there. I just need a professional touch."
This was posted in a group I'm in on Facebook.
Personally, I think creating the content can be harder than creating the design of the website, but not everyone agrees.
How about you? Do you have the content for your website, but just need a professional touch making it come to life?
I'd love to help!
There is more to creating a great website than just good content.
A good website needs:
If you're in the process of launching your business, you probably know exactly what you want to say to your potential customers, but not have the slightest idea how to bring that vision to life.

The hardest website page to create is the About Me page.
It's so hard to know what to say!
And to make it more confusing, the experts say that your About Me page isn't really about you; it's about your visitors and their problem and how you're the best person to solve it.
I asked some copywriting experts for their top tips on how to create a great About Me page.
Be sure to visit their websites for more of their copywriting goodness!

"When you’re writing an “about me” page, consider what your target client needs to know about your qualifications, experience, and philosophy to convince them to hire you. If your clients are corporate employees, they’ll likely be interested in your past positions, certifications, and professional accomplishments; a client base of professional dog walkers is probably interested in a much different set of credentials."
If you're a copywriter and have your own tips for a great About Me page, would you leave a tip and a link to your website in the comments?
