Jay S. - Owner | Lead Developer | Design | Marketing
I'm a 37 year old Business Owner born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. I'm the proud Dad of a beautiful 7 year old little girl who drives me to be more successful every day. I stumbled into the field of The World Wide Web by pure coincidence through my original main passion, music. In 1995 I was in a band that was in my mind, destined for stardom. But something called the internet seemed to be the new age of promotion for local and nationwide entertainers. Being very into art all of my life, graphic design had already piqued my curiosity. So, why not build my band a website? After purchasing some books on HTML...
I created my first site on an old internet network called "Geocities". After a lot of fun building it and compliments from others, I decided to try my hand at a few freelance jobs designing websites.
Back in the days where a domain name was a flat $75 from network solutions and hosting was upwards of $150 per year, I started with a few local companies. First a gym, then a sports supplement company, followed by a restaurant, and so on.
Over time, the importance of web marketing came to my attention. Gone were the days of having the most strategic Meta-Data of your competition. It used to be a well built website could stand on its own for months if not years to come. But eventually Google changed the game. Static websites meant websites that weren't authoritative. Sites that regularly added relevant content flew up in the ranks leaving static HTML behind.
I quickly realized this was now a marketing game. Social Media became almost as important as the sites themselves. That brings us to today. My specialty is now creating not just a website for your company, but a growing online presence that thrives.
Please don't hesitate to contact me to discuss how I can help your business gain leads and thrive through online growth and promotion.
