Main Features

Save Money

thumb

Web development can be costly up front, but it can provide an ROI quickly by automating tasks and can be customized to your workflow.

Analytics

thumb

You can find out a lot about your visitors and find problems with analytics. Basic data, event based data and e-commerce data can all be viewed in detail.

Web Fonts

thumb

Give your site style with fonts other than Times New Roman, Arial, Tahoma and Veranda. Most browsers can support web fonts, which is a better solution than creating heavy images for headers and logos just to use a custom font.

Responsive Design

thumb

Websites can be designed to work on phones, tablets and computers without creating a separate mobile site, without too much extra work. There's no reason to not have a mobile site!

Fully Customizable

thumb

Your site can be customized to your specification, from the front end to the administration panel if you're running an e-commerce website or a contest.

Great Support

thumb

I provide great support before, during and after your website is built. Just as your business is important to you, your satisfaction and your website are important to me.

Services & Abilities

Mobile Websites

Mobile devices such as phones and tablets are gaining speed fast. Your site needs to be accessible on a mobile device in a friendly manner, whether you limit features on a mobile version or not. People don't want to be pinching to zoom in and out and scroll horizontally and vertically just read your site.

It's time to let go of the static, one size fits all, web. There are hundreds of device combinations with more coming out all the time. There are so many operating systems, browser capabilities, screen sizes and resolutions. I can develop a responsive website that can form to the device your website is being viewed on.

Summary

I can create a website that works for your visitors from desktop to mobile users. Most times you can keep all of the same functionality, but even if your site is very large, I have the solution to fit your needs.


Payment Processing and Custom Shopping Cart

Do you have a product or products to sell? Are you running a fundraiser? You may need to be able to accept electronic payments from your visitors for your services or donations.

I have experience integrating with BrainTree and PayPal, both of which have reasonable fees.

Summary

You may need to accept payments on your website for any number of reasons. I can consult you on an option if you are unsure and get you set up to bring in money electronically.


Admin Section

Although this admin section is ecommerce based, I can create an admin section that allows the processing of entries (for a contest or the like) or orders. I can also create CSV reports in formats that are helpful to you.


I can integrate emails to trigger automatically. For example, when you have a tracking number and you've marked an order as shipped, I can have an email automatically send to the buyer, letting them know of the update to their order.

Summary

Whether you need to maintain entries on a contest, keep track of users subscribing to a mailing list or to process orders from your online store, I can create a secure admin section, customized to your needs.


Getting Social

Most sites these days integrate with social networks in some way, from "like" and share buttons to gathering social data through APIs to apps and tabs on Facebook. I can help you add social media to your site or do data collection with social data.

Summary

Adding social buttons to your site can be an easy way to get promotion. Digging deeper into social APIs, you can gather data and build a site custom to your user, read their friends, see their posts, etc.

About Me

Who is TJ Nevis?


Great question! I am very passionate about web development, I've been doing it for 15+ years, 4 professionally. So much is changing on a weekly basis from the tools available to the devices accessing the web. Besides websites, I am a tinkerer. I've been working with Arduino and Raspberry Pi to automate the house, create my own NAS, an RFID loyalty database and so much more. I also enjoy vehicles, keeping them clean, customizing them, etc. I detail cars from time to time, but at one point it was a major source of income for me. I've also taken a few helicopter lessons - maybe one day I'll have my license!
