Front End Description

This web site was created for someone who wanted a web presence as she started her own massage therapy business in Las Vegas. When I asked her to give me a list of web sites she liked, I was surprised to see that all of them looked, in my opinion, like they were from 1998 (contained neon colors, animated gifs, and looked a little unprofessional). I had to convince Karen that she would benefit more from a more professional looking web site, but as you can see, she still wanted a neon-ish color. I wanted to create three columns, the left for basic information and navigation, the middle for the content, and since Karen had pictures she wanted to present, I put those in the right column.

Back End Description

This is a static site - no backend.

Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts

If I had complete creative control over this web site, this web site would different. I spent many days on the phone with Karen making suggestions, showing her several options, and working through our differences. In the end, she liked the web site, and I was happy to see her happy. I also helped her with search engine optimization, on-line marketing, and pay-to-list options.
