Who We Are
We live to serve small businesses and bloggers who need affordable options for their websites.
So many times in life, it seems we have to choose between quality and affordability. Enriching Web Design doesn’t want you to have to make that sacrifice. We believe that even the smallest businesses and bloggers on the tightest budget can (and should) have stellar websites.
A good website is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it is also structurally sound. All of our websites are designed with a balance of beauty, speed, security, and search engine optimization (SEO). With those four components working together, the website we give you will make your business known.
About the Designer
My name is Rebecca Horton, and I am the designer and developer behind Enriching Web Design, based in the beautiful Winchester, Virginia. I have over 10 years of experience in web design and a B.A. from a classical liberal arts college. I left my job as the corporate communications editor for an Inc. 5000 company in order to start my web design business.
How do all these experiences fit together? I can provide you with a website that marries a beautiful and functional design to rich, quality content. With these two elements working seamlessly together, you will win over your visitors in no time!
Why do I need a web designer?
Depending on your situation, you may not need to hire a web designer. There are many terrific DIY design platforms out there. If you have the time, patience, and desire to learn, you can set up a basic site yourself. If you want to save some money, it’s a great option for quickly building a basic online presence. (Plus, if you ever get stuck DIY-ing, I am always available for consultations and support.)
But if you want to take your business to the next level, there are many benefits to outsourcing your site’s design:
Any design platform has a learning curve. When you’re running a business, you may not have the time to construct a good site. Hiring a web designer can help make sure you are using your valuable time most effectively.
DIY sites start at around $100 per year for a basic site (more for add-ons). With WordPress, a web designer can build you a website with unlimited features, and you can pay as little as $60 per year for hosting. Despite the upfront cost, you will save money in the long run.
The greatest content in the world will mean nothing if it is not effectively presented. A good web designer will make your message shine by creating an easily navigable site that both you and your visitors will love.
There are millions of websites. If you use a pre-made template, you run the risk of looking like other businesses in your industry. A custom web design will not only bring your vision to life, but will also help you stand out from the crowd.
In order for your website to be of best use to you, people have to be able to find it. A web developer will know how to help your website get higher rankings on search engines, which will drive more traffic to your site and more business to your company.
Websites are vital in today’s world. Your website is your online business card, and a poorly designed website can hurt your credibility and customer outreach. Hiring a web designer is an investment in your business’s growth.
