“This SOUL SCHOOL SISTERHOOD could not be possible without the incredible help of my web designer Sharon King of Digital Marketing by Design. With her efficiency, practicality, and creative visual eye, Sharon created a BEAUTIFUL WEBSITE for me. Asking for technological help from her has been one of the best decisions that I have made this year!!! Sharon removed the pain of technology so that I could focus on the creative and visual elements of the materials that I have put together over the years to help others.“
Sharon King did a fantastic job of redoing my business website, modernising it in both form and functionality! She is creative, kind and very skilled! I recommend her highly!
“Sharon just completed my new website I love it. It is exactly what I asked for, simple, clear and clean! I really loved what she did with my logo! Sharon is a great communicator, reliable and quick to respond to your needs. I am a very busy person, Sharon had mountains of patience for me and we were still able to complete the project within our timeline.
I highly recommend Sharon and Digital Marketing by Design for any project you may have. Thank you Sharon for everything.“
Frequently Asked Questions
How do we get started?
We like to assess your needs and goals before proceeding with a project. Scheduling a Discovery Call and completing our website questionnaire will help us to determine your wish list and your nice-to-have list and how we can help you achieve your goals within your budget.
What top-level domain name should I register?
Well, that is entirely up to you but if your business can serve an audience outside of your country, say Canada, or if you are doing business outside of your home country, you may want to go with a top-level domain like .com. But if you will mainly serve Canadian clients or a local audience then a .ca would be better. A .ca domain name will immediately brand your website and business as 100% Canadian.
Will I be able to maintain my own website after it has launched?
We offer website maintenance and care packages to clients who do not wish to do the housekeeping on their websites but, will also provide training to those clients who prefer to handle the aftercare themselves.
I do not have a big budget for my website. Will I still be able to get online?
Yes, even a one-page website is enough to make you stand out from those without an online presence. We recommend a self-hosted website but there are other alternatives if this is still not within your budget. Website builder applications such as Wix or WordPress.com can help you get online but there are limitations such as your website being a subdomain of these platforms. However, you should choose a platform that meets both your immediate and long-term needs and strategic goals.
