Website Management

Websites I Manage:

ParachuteJumpPublishing.com Note the webmaster at the bottom of every page :-).  The owner of the site was very organized, so I was able to get this site up in 2 days.  Not including some fine tuning she wanted done.  She had chosen a theme (ThemeForest – Website), purchased the domain name, continued using the host she had set her first (non-WP) website on, had a written plan along with all the content and some photos, and told me she liked purple.  The fact that it was to be a hub site for all 22 books she was going to write (of which 4 were done when she chose this domain name) and her amazing story as to why this came to be… was more than enough to design the site.  I continue with the usual duties of SEO, upgrades/updates, and any other functions or content she wants to change or move or make better.  Paulette’s story for creating this is very inspiring!

WhenMarsWomenDate.com  This is the first off-chute of PJP.com.  Please know that I sped up the slider for this demonstration; go to the site to see it in real time.  Since it was a site about ONE of the 22 books she is writing for her Legacy, there were a few changes.  Out side of content, there were menus, and more graphics (of which I made also).  I have made many updates to this site on my own that the owner and I had discussed.  Most of the changes were in SEO, security, and added connectivity her social sites.  When one client asks me to do something, and it would help my other clients’ websites, I usually just do the update them all (with no extra charge) unless it may impact the look or functionality of the site; in that case I always get an okay from the owner of the site.

ProfessorRoberts.com  This was a site migration.  The Professors host said the free web platform he was using was no longer going to be updated, especially for Windows 8.  At which point he decided to see what was available.  Not only did he update the sites entire look and move it to WordPress; he decided to allow me to host it.  Understand this is not something I am looking to branch out in; but I do what I can to make clients’ web life easier.

PrimeStrategies.com  The original website and blog were on separate sites.  They are now both combined into one site.  Design was by Andres Basso, the migration (including documentation of the old site) was my assignment.  This professional’s business coaching skills are simply amazing.  She came up with my tagline!

TheCancerPath.com  This site recently went online after the author of a series of “Cancer Path” books was in the process of being launched by Dr. Paulette Sherman.  As her book publishing and sales grow, so do her sites.  They are very multi-functional in that they offer both free information, more detailed help through her books, and even one-on-one counseling.  If you know of anyone who is fighting cancer, her video blog is beyond inspirational.

AskAnAngel.com   After completing the migration to WordPress (as described below), I now just keep the sites updates and upgrades current.  In time, more current SEO and other social integration may be added.  Christopher Dilts is a very gifted spiritual counselor with many ways to access his help and guidance.

DianneLegro.com  Dianne is a multi-talented artist and counselor.  She was my first client.  I helped her with a newsletter via MyNewsletterBuilder.com for one of her clients (Santo J. Costa).  The advice on her website goes beyond helping singers, speakers, and those needing help in these areas.  This was also a migration to WordPress that I was given control over after someone else had started the task.  It was more than an honor to work with and for her; her site (including her YouTube channel) is a must to visit if you do any kind of speaking.

Website management is:

Website analysis, Website dynamics, Social Integration, and Website SEO.  What possibilities are available for your site to be more interactive, more functional, better/different from your competitors?  There is free information throughout this site, but you can always contact me for more information on everything my website management will/ can/ and may include.
