Helping Small Businesses Grow and Protect Themselves, One Conversation at a Time

Small business owners sometimes need help understanding the best ways to establish their website, branding, and overall online presence. Most of that isn't "set and forget." Entrepreneurs oftentimes need more personalized help than Small Business Association (SBA) and Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs) provide. That's where I come in.

I don't simply write and review code. Before anything, I consult on the best ways to optimize your website and social media to match your goals, attract your target audience, protect your data, and save time, in plain English. I talk about the digital marketing funnel, business continuity plan, etc. But applying those frameworks and methodologies to a specific business, or "use case," require more research and experience. The most popular solution isn't always best for you. I provide this assistance through Parker Dewey micro-internships. Use my contact form below discuss projects you've posted or a quick website audit.

Notable skills: cPanel, SEMRush, WordPress, Linux.
