Web design is a critical part of any online business.
Obviously, you need a web site. But more importantly, you need a web site that converts. And design plays a big role in conversion.
That's why I want to let you know about my brother, Jared Healy.
For the last four months, he's been coding up sales letters, setting up blogs, and creating web sites for me. And he's done a fantastic job.
I don't say that just because he's my brother.
One of my clients who has hired me for three different copywriting projects has also hired a few different web designers at my suggestion.
The first one did a good job, but stopped because he just didn't have the time. (This particular designer has a full-time job.)
The second one... well... let's just say my client was unhappy. (Read between the lines, okay?)
The third one was my brother.
Of all the designers my client had hired, he said my brother was easily the best. He did better work... and faster work... than any of the others.
I, too, have been exceptionally happy with my brother's work. It's top notch.
This is a big deal for me since a lot of my clients ask me if I know any web designers who can code up their letters and web sites. Up until now, I was always slightly hesitant. You never know how a web designer is going to work out.
But now I can confidently recommend Jared Healy.
Here is what Jared can do for you...
Code up a long-form sales letter with photos and design elements that improve conversion rates.
Set up a Wordpress blog on any web site, with any theme, and with as many plug-ins as you want.
Convert sites from HTML to PHP so you can update your site's navigation in seconds instead of hours.
- Set up split-tests. (You give him the words and he'll do the technical stuff.)
Of course, he can do more than this, but this is just a sample.
Jared has also put together some rates so you'll know what to expect before you contact him.
If you're interested in getting a long-form sales letter coded, he charges $100 per page with a $300 minimum. (A page is roughly what would fit on one page in Microsoft Word.)
He also has an amazing deal going for anybody who would like a Wordpress blog set up. For just $250, he'll set up your blog with whatever theme you want, plus he'll install up to five plug-ins. For instance, here are five potential plug-ins you might choose:
- Feedburner Icon with Feed Count
- Email opt-in form integration (Aweber, Goldbar, GetResponse, etc.)
- Popularity Contest (Creates a sidebar list of the most popular posts.)
- MyBlogLog Widget (Tracks traffic stats and lists community visitors.)
- AddThis Widget (Bookmark utility that allows readers to add your posts to social media sites.)
This is a bargain for $250. Doing all of this could take a novice two or three days to accomplish, maybe longer.
Anyway, if you're interested, give Jared a shout at webmaster [at] jaredhealy [dot] com. Or call him at 720-334-7029. If you have a project that falls outside what I've described here, I'm sure he'll be happy to provide you with a quote.
P.S. I receive no compensation from recommending Jared. Whatever business you do with him is between you and him.
