Means Design Group is a website design and development firm, specializing in helping small businesses and non-profit organizations. I can help with every aspect of your website – from domain name registration and hosting to design, content management, ongoing maintenance, and even training.
How long have you been in business?
Means Design Group was formed in 2016, but I’ve been designing and developing websites professionally for over 20 years.
How has your business or organization been impacted by COVID-19? What additional challenges are you facing?
Businesses everywhere are feeling the financial pinch of the pandemic, and many want to cut advertising as a way to save money. My challenge has been showing small business owners and non-profit organizations that spending their advertising dollars wisely, rather than eliminating them completely, can be the difference between the success and failure of their business at times like these.
What have you done to adapt?
I work with clients to show them that building a website does not need to be a huge financial burden, and that the benefits of having a strong online presence are worth the investment.
What is something you would like people to know about your business or organization?
No job is too big or too small. I’ve worked with large corporations and small businesses with one employee. I enjoy working personally with clients to deliver exactly what they need at a price they can afford.
