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.
Nathan is tha bomb. Very helpful, and communicates throughout the entire process. Boosted my site speed more than I thought he would be able to. 6 out of 5 stars! He's great
Nathans help was invaluable and worth every penny. He saved me so much time in speeding up my website. He completed tasks quickly that would have taken me weeks to figure out. Nathan kept me informed throughout the process with a great summary of the changes at the end. My website speed results speak for themselves. I would thoroughly recommend Nathan and will use him in the future.
I am truly impressed, and I don't impress easily. I was having significant issues with speed on my Wordpress site and was feeling very frustrated. I realized I needed a professional developer to look at my site as I don't have the skillset to figure it out. Luckily, Nathan responded to my job posting. He was a pro right from the beginning. Excellent communication all the way through. He delivered on his promise to speed up my site considerably -- it's ultra fast now. He quickly recognized some widgets that were slowing down the site, which I had not clue about. He got rid of those, plus made a whole list of other changes in Cloudflare, and on the site which are far too numerous to list. Truth is, I'm beyond satisfied. He did the work in a short amount of time and was very open and responsive, providing updates as he worked, which I truly appreciate. He answered all of my questions, which were constant. I should be his agent :) All I can say is -- Thank-you! Do not hesitate to work with Nathan. I will happily return when new issues arise. Thanks again :)
Nate is extremely knowledgeable, personable, and hands on. He's been very communicative as well while working on our project. When tensions were high on our team, he was a calming presence with his knowledge and demeanor. He was also very patient as we worked through some complicated technical issues with non-techy people in the mix (always willing to break down his explanations to a simple level, while not being condescending). Most importantly, he also understood the critical nature of uptime and made sure to minimize the financial impacts of the changes we needed to make (when quite literally "time is money" for when our site is live). I've worked with many external developers, and Nate has been the absolute best. We look forward to working with him on many more projects to come! -Eric Stout, COO - WhiskeyRiff
Clear communication 1) Clear and appropriate questions on the project I submitted. He understood that this should be a quick and easy fix. 2) He noted an SSL problem and informed me. 3) Clear that estimate was for fixing both problems. I am truly glad I found Codeable
Nathan was professional, friendly, and actively listened to our ideas and vision for our site. He set up the website in such a way that simplified the update and content addition process and taught us how to do it. Response time was great-- 7 days exactly from concept to finished site. Even though we were not a high dollar project, Nathan prioritized our work and treated us like a big-time customer. Five stars. Thank you.
Nate was professional, timely, and very helpful.
Nathan is a top notch communicator. His work is great!
It's been a pleasure to work with Nathan. Communication has been excellent throughout the process, and I thoroughly appreciate his willingness to listen carefully about what I need and to help think with me about what can work best for the project. Nathan is terrific at walking me through the different steps in the process. I hope we can continue collaborating on work.
Nathan completed the project with quality in mind and made all adjustments as requested and quickly.
Nathan did a FANTASTIC job on our website, in a matter of minutes he got work done that would've taken us days to figure out. Nathan communicates in a very timely manner, and technical skills are outstanding. If you want any customizations done to your website, Nathan is your guy!
