Kiras services are simple, affordable and necessaryAre you ready to get the services that your business needs?

My services are simple, affordable, and necessary. So many businesses fall behind on the web because their websites don’t perform well on cellphones (or they don’t even have a website), or their photos are from 4 years ago, the last time they updated was in 2012, or it is so difficult to figure out how to contact someone that the customer gives up and goes elsewhere.

Rather than paying a-la-carte for separate services which could cost you thousands of dollars, I charge only 2 fees:  one that gets your website ready, and an ongoing maintenance fee for all the updates necessary to keep your website at the top of it’s game. You will see ROI after about 3 months, because it takes time for the changes to take effect. Nothing is instant on the web. It also takes time to build an email marketing list with solid, buying leads on it- and I will help you do it as quickly as possible.

During our free 30 minute consultation meeting, I can explain to you the kinds of changes you can expect to see in the traffic to your website and place of business. There is a lot of “technical” language I could use, but let’s start with this:  You know your business best- and I know mine. I will always ask you what you think you need, and we will go from there.
