Content is king on the web, yet, it’s also the most difficult part to get right. Because of this, many designers will build a pretty interface, then expect you to know what content to put inside it. And they are the purported experts! When you work with me, we will iron out the content together before I write a line of code, ensuring that it’s a first-class citizen on your website.
Did you know that smartphone users account for over 30% of web traffic? Google has even begun lowering the ranking of websites that are not mobile friendly. To address this, all of my new websites are responsive, which means that the website layout will rearrange itself to fit on screens of any size.
According to a recent study, 40% of people will abondon a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Your business can’t afford to suffer that kind of loss, so I heavily optimize and test each of my websites to ensure they are blazing fast, even on tardy cellular connections.
“We couldn’t afford the high price most companies wanted to charge and did not have the time to do it ourselves. I would highly recommend Caleb to create the website that is just right for your business.”
A fully custom layout and design, carefully crafted content, precision coding, responsive (mobile-friendly) layouts, and a great price are complimentary with each option. If you don’t see what you need, let me know — I want to help you!
A one-page website, perfect for your micro-business or event. Think about it like an online billboard where important information can be succinctly presented. Content and design are critical for these websites, so I’ll make sure that it’s flawless.
Every single-page website comes with free hosting for a year on my super-fast server, so your website can get online quickly and with as little friction as possible.approx. cost $400
My most popular offering for small businesses. A website of this caliber typically boasts 5-20 pages, and may include some more advanced features (like the ability to edit the website yourself).
This type of website is appropriate for most small businesses, but especially those that want to use their website to educate customers, showcase a large portfolio, or enumerate their manifold services.approx. cost $1,200
Need something bigger? I have experience building websites that contain 300+ pages. I can either design the website and work with your developers to implement it, or design and develop it myself.
The site will be CMS-driven, making it appropriate for any website that handles a lot of data, such as an e-commerce website. I love to work with the Kirby content managment system for websites on this scale.approx. cost $3,500+
Email me the link and I will look it over and send you a list of three ways you can improve quickly your website’s design and usability, absolutely free. If you like what you see, but are not feeling particularly gumptious, you can hire me to implement the suggestions on your website for you — but that’s your call.
“Caleb has a gift for web design, a passion for the organizations he works with, and is very wise and honest. What a blessing he has been to us!”
I’m Caleb, proprietor here at Grove Design, a one-man website design and development agency in Lewistown, Montana; the land of black angus, steak, and burger, where winter lasts half the year and summer is spent in the hayfield. I love Christ but am wary of politicians and milk cows.
I employ the same philosophy while doing business as I do for building websites: Honesty & clarity above all else. I’m committed to looking out for my end user — you. There’s very little I love more than a home-baked apple pie, but seeing another business with a well-tailored website really takes the cake.
“Caleb is fast, tech-savvy, and knows his stuff. He has always come through, doing what he said he’d do and more. We are thrilled with our site.”
