About My Business
My career in graphic design and website development began in July of 2018 when I built my first website, The Spoonless Witch. I didn't know anyone who could help me with the graphics, with developing the website - or even in teaching me to do so, which meant my only option was to teach myself. As I learned, I started offering to help friends and family with their websites, graphics, and social media accounts, for free at first to gain experience. Now that I'm confident in my website development skills, I feel comfortable charging for my services.
I'm happy to take on jobs for any type of company, and have done graphics, website development, and/or social media management for businesses in a variety of industries such as; an insurance agency, diamond painting, a doctor's office, a metaphysical shop, an art shop, a bakery, and more. When creating a website, graphic, or working on a social media account for a business, I'm flexible enough to be able to bend to any industry, as well as their specific needs and goals as a business.
I've developed a handful of successful websites, including the one you're currently looking at! I even continue to keep up with many of these websites, and update when needed. I just love looking at a brand new, untouched website as a blank canvas, allowing me to mold it in my hands any way I want. Brands that have trusted me with the development of their websites are:
The Spoonless Witch and Ashley's Aura were built with Shopify, Prince Hill Insurance Agency's website was built with Insurance Splash, and Nancy's Diamonds and Grandma's Kitchen were built with Format, which is also what I used to build this website.
I also redesign existing websites, so if you're not happy with the way your website currently looks and feels, I can bring it back to life! I could even do a complete rebranding for your business, which means redesigning the website as well as making new logos, headers, and graphics, with the goal of changing the entire style of your brand.

My career in graphic design began mostly out of necessity. I started my first business with absolutely no experience in graphic design, and I had no clue how many creative images you need on a website! Product images, cover photos, collection images, and that's not even including the whole logo package! I paid for the logo packages for both of my websites, but I've made all the other images, like product photos, cover images, and some of the pictures that are scattered throughout the pages.
When I started graphic designing, I first used Adobe Spark for it's simplicity and user-friendly editing system. As I became more advanced in my graphic designing abilities, I started to get bored with Spark and it's small variety of templates. I had heard great things about Canva, so that's what I use now. There's so much more you can do with the images, and you can even make videos with Canva too! They also have hundreds of thousands of templates, on any and every subject you could think of. I recommend Adobe Spark for beginners, and Canva for more intermediate. I also like LunaPic, for quick, simple edits. They have one of the best one click background remover edits out there, LunaPic's and Canva's are two of my favorites.

My mom and I were gifted our first camera when I was 4 years old. Not to age myself, but it was a very cool film camera that kids now couldn't believe you'd have to have the film developed before you could print the pictures, and see them for the first time! I instantly fell in love with photography, and took pictures of anything I thought was interesting. I won first place in two state fairs in same year for a photography collage I put together when I was 6 years old. From there on out, I would sort of have an on again off again relationship with photography. I do so many other things like making jewelry and skincare, graphic design and web development, and even more, that photography tends to get pushed to the side. I'll always go back to it though, as it was my first creative passion.

SEO stands for “search engine optimization.” In simple terms, it means the process of improving your site to increase its visibility when people search for products or services related to your business in Google, Bing, and other search engines. The better visibility your pages have in search results, the more likely you are to garner attention and attract prospective and existing customers to your business.
SEO is a fundamental part of digital marketing because people conduct trillions of searches every year, often with commercial intent to find information about products and services. Search is often the primary source of digital traffic for brands and complements other marketing channels. Greater visibility and ranking higher in search results than your competition can have a material impact on your bottom line.
Ranking when people search on Google is essential to boost lead generation on your website. If you don’t show up within the first two pages of a Google search, your chances of getting found drop to nearly zero. It’s important not just to show up for your business name, but also for searches for what your company does.
Simply put, on-page SEO is the practice of optimizing your website content and HTML to best rank in search engines. This means defining what your page is about, as well as organizing each element so that search engines can read it. This includes your page title, URL, content, meta title, meta description, alt tags, links and headings.
I don't have a product in the shop for SEO yet, so if you need some SEO work done, just go to the Contact Me page and send me a message about what you need done.
