About EJM Design
I started my business at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic after being furloughed from my job. I love being an entrepreneur and helping other entrepreneurs achieve their goals, so I work with business owners to develop solutions through web development and digital marketing customized to their needs. I’m based in Western Massachusetts, but am always available via phone or video chat.
Helping small businesses succeed
In today’s world, a professional and functional website is essential for all businesses. Even a thriving brick-and-mortar store needs a digital presence, because most of a consumer’s research begins in a digital setting. If you’re not appearing in their search results, you’re sending them straight to your competitor’s website. So instead of using a template like everyone else, we’ll create a space that attracts your ideal customers. Every site is built completely from scratch; no templates or pre-designed themes are used.
A process you can trust
Beginning each project with an in-person consultation to review your business goals ensures we’re on the same page from the start. Following that, a landing page will be published so that you can start building an email list. Your website will be built on a holding platform so it can be viewed as it progresses. The site will be set up using SEO best practices and connected to Google Search Console to improve your search engine ranking. And when it’s complete, you have the option of self-hosting or utilizing one of our hosting plans.
As a lifelong member of the equestrian community, I have a passion for helping equine and agricultural non-profits and not-for profits succeed through web design. Many challenges these organizations face can be improved with online solutions, such as:
Collecting memberships & payments
Event registration & entry
Selling merchandise and tickets to awards banquets or events
Embedded Paypal donate option
Collecting mailing list subscribers
Monthly/quarterly newsletter editing
Automated email flows when site visitors take certain actions
Embedding Instagram or Facebook feeds to easily update website
I’m fully aware of the budgets many of these organizations have in place, so I offer web development and maintenance services at a heavily discounted rate. Although I prefer to design in WordPress, I will work with an existing site if necessary (although the functions may be limited). I also offer discounted graphic design solutions to non-profit and not-for-profit agricultural-based organizations.
There are a limited amount of spots available each year for this type of work, so please contact me to discuss your needs. Each project is quoted on an individual basis.
