Hi, I’m Nathan… I’ll provide the solutions to your first-world-problems.
Let’s make this as simple as possible, imagine having one dedicated consultant for everything web related. No more questioning where to go or who to talk to. No more stressful confusion about your website. Sound good? Well then you’re in luck. If you’re looking for help with your next website or one that already exists I’ve got your back…
I’ve been in the web world for 10 years and have shared successes with companies of all sizes. Throughout these years I’ve worked both freelance and had a couple ‘real jobs’ building websites from a desk, nine-to-five… I’ve designed, developed, and deployed customized web-based solutions for mom-and-pop shops all the way up to multi-million dollar corporations. I’ve helped many small businesses grow their organic search traffic and helped corporations maintain websites with 500,000+ annual page views. No project is too big, or too small.
Don’t just take my word for it though, listen to what some of my clients have to say about me…
“Nate has been critical in the success of my website. Being fairly savvy with computers I thought I’d try and build a website myself when I started my painting company. My site got 2,500 hits the first year with minimal organic traffic. Nate rebuilt my site and within the first month drove over 10,000 hits to it.
My old site used to get about 10 organic hits in a good month, I’m now consistently seeing 300+ organic hits which have turned into profitable business on several occasions. The increased organic business wouldn’t have been possible without Nate’s work and SEO. In addition to this, I get numerous compliments on the layout of my new site and how easy it is to use. I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking to further develop their business or simply improve the look and feel of their website.” ~JD Jensen
My first ‘real job’ also had some nice things to say when we parted ways…
I highly recommend Nate as a candidate for employment. Nate was employed by Viking Magazine Service Inc. from June 2012 to February 2014, as the company’s Online Sales Developer and Social Media Manager. In this role, Nate was responsible for developing and maintaining all of our company’s websites, social media strategies, and monthly newsletter.
Nate has excellent graphic design, website development, and search engine optimization skills. Additionally, Nate is intensely entrepreneurial, well organized, and intelligent. Nate consistently demonstrated his ability to work independently and meet aggressive project deadlines.
Nate would be an excellent asset for your company and has my highest recommendation. If you have any further questions with regard to his background or qualifications, do not hesitate to call. ~Daniel Quam
Here’s how the development process works for me…
I. Strategize… We’ll make a plan, together.
I understand your ideal website is one that’s perfectly tailored for you. I strive to create a unique online experience for my clients that reflects your personality, plays to your strengths, and accomplishes your goals. Because one size does not fit all, we’ll devise a custom strategy that is as unique as your business. You can trust that the strategy we craft together will work overtime, so you don’t have to.
I believe your website is much more than alluring aesthetics, that’s why I approach every project from a business perspective rather than solely an artistic one. Combining stunning visuals with strategic solutions allows you to spark more productive connections with your customers. Other designers can give you a site that works, but you can trust me to craft one that excels. I accomplish this by considering every nuance and intricacy to provide your website with a stunning look and even stronger performance.
You have your niche and I have mine, together we’ll pair my talents with your voice to share your story online in a way that’s compelling and unique to you. I’ll work with you throughout the entire process to ensure your new site reflects your brand, captures your customers’ attention, improves user interactions, and ultimately raises revenues. I’m here to ensure that everything your site does, it does well.
II. Develop… I’ll get to work bringing your ideas to life.
I go to work on every single project with my creative juices flowing freely and I work hard to produce unique websites that make people stop and take notice. I know your business wants something compelling and that’s why I’ll never settle for, or create, anything less.
When it comes to your new website, I believe it’s essential to immerse myself in the latest development technologies. To achieve my cutting-edge designs, I always work with the most modern programming styles. This ensures your site will always dazzle your customers, no matter what browser they’re using to view it.
In today’s world mobile phones and tablets are quickly becoming the primary way people interact with websites. That’s why I build sites that render beautifully on all devices. You can rest assured your website will impress your customers whether they view it at their desk, in their den, or in the palms of their hands.
III. Deploy… Share your completed project with the world.
With all the care I put into these websites, I’d never leave one to languish in cyberspace. Instead, I install analytics prior to launch that allow me to track your site and make improvements based on actual usage. By making these on-the-go adjustments, I make sure you get the maximum performance out of your website. For many companies today, this adaptability is the difference between their success and failure online.
IV. Optimize… Increase performance, exposure, conversions & results.
I understand that without traffic, even the most gorgeous website won’t help your bottom line. I also understand that getting to the top of the search engine results isn’t a one-step process. Strong keywords won’t get you far without site ranking and search traffic growth. That’s why I think beyond the launch, maintaining analytics and ranking reports to make sure the trajectory for your site is always looking up.
I’m always exploring innovative and sustainable techniques to improve your website’s search engine rankings. Because search engine algorithms are constantly changing, I must always be thinking one step ahead. I’ll never use tactics that boost short-term results only to let you down later on. I develop ethical, digital marketing strategies that improve search rank consistently while withstanding the test of time.
I’ll help you measure and analyze each campaign so you can watch your ideas turn into hard numbers and tangible results. I’ve been around long enough to know that this isn’t a one-size-fits-all endeavor, that’s why every project I develop is customized, energetic, ambitious, and most importantly successful.
My company had 2 complex, e-commerce based websites that needed to move quickly to a brand-new hosting platform. I was nervous to hire a developer to assist with this because our sites have a ton of members with accounts/logins, the sites do a lot in sales/transactions every month, and have a ton of pages of content on them. It would be a lot of work for whoever we hired and there was a lot at stake and on the line for this project. We also needed it to be done in a timely manner. Nathan responded immediately to inquire about the project and before we had even hired him he asked a lot of questions, clarified issues that may arise, and made us feel confident he knew exactly what we needed. We hired Nathan. From that moment on, we knew we had the right person for the job! He was SUPER responsive to our messages - often responding as quick as we could ask or answer. It was a level of customer service that I feel like I've never gotten from a developer - or many other people in this field. He would also ask a lot of questions for clarification if needed and bring up other issues that he may have saw while working in our hosting account (in case we needed help with those things too). It was one of those experiences where you feel like you're being taken care of and you can trust the work they are doing. Nathan was worth every penny that we spent on him for our projects. I told him that I hope he's ready to work for us in the future because I can't see using anybody else! The experience was literally that good! Thank you Nathan for your hard work for our company and the work that you put in on our website projects. Looking forward to continuing to grow our relationship and work together.
Nathan absolutely SMASHED IT out of the park! He was incredibly thorough, so friendly, so helpful, and went above and beyond the call of duty. He not only did a complete optimization of my site, but he gave me heaps of invaluable advice that I can use well into the future on my Wordpress site. I cannot say enough good about this man. Just hope that you are lucky enough to be able to work with him!!
Super nice to work with! Explained things very well, and wasn’t condescending about it at all. I was a little nervous about that, as I’m a complete novice at this. Very quick to get back to me. Worked through all my issues and super thorough. He was awesome about including tabs that I can use in the future to continue to make my life easier. I highly recommend Nathan.
We did a project in 2 phases with Nathan. The first project was satisfactory although it did take him 4 weeks to complete the 4 hours of work. Hence the responsiveness rating above. And there was a lack of communication on it, hence the communication rating. Where Nathan was brilliant was in his instruction for me on how to complete certain items. They couldn't have been more complete and clear. But the big problem was with work performed in Phase 2. The work that Nathan did caused our website to crash for 24+ hours. And there was no accounting of the work performed overall other than one screenshot. He was caustic at times - and wonderfully congenial at other times. So, my final assessment would go something along these lines....when he was good, he was very very good, but when he was bad, he was very very bad. An unfortunate ending for all concerned.
Very happy with the work and service I received. Planning on additional work next month.
Professional, quick, helpful.
Great Job, well done for the first project working with Nathan. Responsive and knowledgeable.
This project took much longer than I anticipated. Nate was unresponsive for many day at a time. He did however finish the project and purchased the software he needed without charge to me.
