Since not all sites require the same kind of portfolio, this service is an offer to add extra work to your Portfolio Page. Some websites have many more items that they need to add to their portfolio. This service includes 10 additional works to be added to a portfolio for $40.
The portfolio section/page of your website is critical to best showcase your work. We will work with you to ensure your work is presented professionally, artistically, and with the technical configuration for an enjoyable user experience. We take extra care to ensure images and meta-data is migrated without loss and understand the importance of this part of the project.
Hopefully all of our Portfolios grow over time. If you need to add to your portfolio, we can import your new works to your portfolio and configure them properly. We assist in the export from your old system and import them, preserving meta-data. We optionally can suggest new ways to enhance the appeal of your portfolio and introduce selling mechanisms to increase sales.
Some web sites present a different header in certain sections of the site. For example, you might have a web page reserved for logged-in users that presents specific content. You might instead want a different header when your visitors are in your Shopping Cart.
We can design and add a new graphic to your site. We charge a flat rate based on the average time it takes us to construct graphics. Once we get started, we will ask you for your initial opinion of existing designs. This will give us a better idea of the design elements you are looking for. We will refine a collection of graphics, and ask you for your opinion again. Once we have a pretty clear idea of what you are looking for we will present you with a few different rudimentary designs. Then we will construct a graphic for your opinion. Finally, we make adjustments based your input. We may incorporate royalty-free designs from 3rd parties.

If you have seen WordPress blogs on the web, then you know that often there is a ‘sidebar’ area where the ‘posts’ are categorized and a menu is displayed to the visitor so that they can read additional ‘posts’. Typically sidebars are used for adding important functionality to more than one page. Some sidebars can display horizontally – this is often used for ‘breadcrumbs’ for example. Sidebars are configured with separate functional parts, called ‘widgets’. You can add any number of widgets to a sidebar. Widgets are powerful tools and provide the functionality for sub-menus, breadcrumbs, featured pages, popular posts, calendars, login prompts, maps, images, contact info, YouTube channel galleries, social icons with followers, subscribers, and likes counts, etc. Please note however, some premium widgets do come with some extra cost.
If you purchased the eCommerce package, you already get one included (but optional) sidebar for your ‘Shop Page’.
Otherwise know as a Content Management System, blogging systems like WordPress, allow full control over managing the content on your website with little technical knowledge. Your blog posts can be integrated into the site and serve as a source for the text that appears in many of the areas on other pages. Adding blog content is critical to web positioning as blogs are easily indexed by web crawlers. In addition, blog content is easily shared on social networks. Blog posts can also be used for the content in other components on your site, making it easier to update. Finally, blog pages allow your visitors to view content in a form that they are accustomed to. This service, adds a properly configured blog to your WordPress site. We can also suggest ways to keep you blog organized and indexable by search engines. Finally, we show you how to easily update your blog.

Graphic modification is sometimes needed in cases where you might have a graphic that you want to use but need some modifications to it. Changing the graphic can be as simple as resizing, cropping, or changing the colorization. Typically it is a combination of these and some additional work to make the background transparent. After we adjust the graphic, we present the changes for your opinion. We will then make adjustments based your input. This sometimes takes a few rounds. The process is done over the phone and sometimes in a shared screen session. The process typically takes a few days. We charge $40/hr for this service.
