Web Design

Building websites that actually accomplish business goals

What's the point of having a website, anyways? 

Want the short version? Without a website, your business is dying with each passing day. Don't take my word for it – research indicates that 76% of consumers go online to research a product or service before making a purchase at an actual store. In today's world, customers are making real purchasing decisions based on what they see on your website. You just can't afford to not show up for the game. 

Psst... You can read more about why you need a website in this blog post. 

Can't I build my own website for pretty cheap?

The answer is yes, you definitely can. After all, I got my start in the web design world by doing exactly that – building a website for my own ecommerce business. 

But should you build your own website? It depends on how much your value your time. I'd be lying if I said it doesn't take time and effort to learn even the free or inexpensive software you need to build a website. And unless you're a web designer or a professional marketer, you will likely struggle to build the site in a way that accomplishes your business goals. 

Look, it's the same as any task in your business. Can you manage your own finances instead of hiring an accountant? Yes, you can. But could doing it yourself ultimately cost your business valuable time and money in mistakes and missed opportunities? Certainly.

What makes me different from other web design companies? 

To me, an ecommerce storefront is just a tool that serves one purpose – to accomplish your business goals. I build and design with conversion in mind – that is, my websites actually convert your visitors into paying customers (see case studies here).

Here are a few other attributes that set me apart:

Core Nomad is operated by a robust team of one.

Yep, I do all of the strategy, design, and development work on my own. I believe in the value of personal expertise, and frankly, I don't want my clients to pay the huge agency fees that typically come with professional web design and marketing services.  

I've worked with companies like yours.

This is not my first rodeo. Since 2015, I've worked with billion-dollar enterprises, startups, small businesses, midsized companies, and everything in-between to assist with web design and marketing. Don't take my word for it – go check out some of the companies I've helped. 

I eat, sleep, and drink processes.

How does one man single-handedly manage robust web design and marketing projects for numerous businesses at the same time? Streamlined, documented processes. I've walked this path many times before, and I'll use my own proven methods to accomplish your business goals. 

Speaking of processes, here's what mine looks like for web design. 

My 2-Month Web Design Process

  • Step 1 : Compile
  • Step 2 : Configure
  • Step 3 : Build
  • Step 4 : Launch
  • Step 5 : Support
Step 1 : Compile


"What goals do you want your website to achieve for your business?" Your answer to this question will serve as the foundation for our web design project. Once we figure out our purpose, I'll work with you to collect, compile, and document all the content (images, copy, pages, features) we'll need for the site. 

Project timeline: Week 1

Step 2 : Configure


Custom domains, hosting plans, private email, content management systems... I'll help you navigate all the jargon and provide the proper recommendations for your business. Oh, and I'll personally take care of all the technical configuration on your behalf. 

Project timeline:  Week 2

Step 3 : Build


This is where it gets fun. I'll use all the info we've covered thus far to build out some wireframe design drafts on what your home page, key pages, and overall site will look like. Once I receive approval on your end, I'll get to work on turning the site design drafts into your new website.

Project timeline: Weeks 3-4 

Step 4 : Launch


Isn't launching a website just flipping a switch? Not if you're in the business of building websites that actually work. Before we launch, I'll install a few custom analytics packages so we can measure your site's key performance indicators accurately and reliably. After we launch, I'll analyze the data to find opportunities for improvement and use those insights to modify your site. 

Project timeline: Weeks 5-7

Step 5 : Support


If your business changes every week, shouldn't your website do the same? From complex issues like theme updates and technical support to simple image/text changes, I'll completely handle all the "website stuff" on your behalf.

Project timeline: Week 8+
