Web Design

Jeff Miner Consulting

Web Design

I started my consulting business building simple web pages for friends and later expanded to small businesses in the Lake Tahoe area. My approach has been to use web pages as an electronic business card to attract customers through internet searches, to give customers a feel for the business, and to get them to make contact to learn more or to make a purchase. This approach allows the web page to be simple, direct, and quick to deliver. If you would like to learn more, contact me. Below are some examples of what I mean.

A web page should deliver your message and get the viewer to contact you. Web pages can be effective without being complicated.

Retain your character, but keep it simple
Graphics create visual interest.
Text tells your story, answers questions and gets customers to act.
Links allow access to other resources.
Search engines should list you in the top group.
