Website Consulting Services
Since 2004, I have been helping small business owners establish an identity on the web, strengthen their reach, and increase business growth.
By hiring a website consultant, you can focus on what matters most - running your business. Let me guide your business through the process to creating or improving your business's online presence.
Custom Tailored Web Solutions
There is no one size-fits-all solution when it comes to creating a successful digital strategy. The only efficient way to gain traction on the web is to develop a web strategy that suits your business model. It needs to align with your company's strengths and goals. Your digital strategy needs to be mindful of possible restraints, such as budget and time.
Entrepreneur. Designer. Developer.
I started freelancing while attending Purchase College in New York. I'm a founding partner of Bocain Designs, a small web design company just outside of Albany, New York.
I like to say that I didn't grow up with the Internet, but that the Internet grew up with me. I started using the Internet in the early 1990s and have ever since been hooked. I've been creating websites and watching websites evolve for the last twenty years.Contact Dan

Web Design and Digital Strategy Workflow
Below is a typical project "roadmap" from start to finish.
The first step to improving your business's online presence is to contact me. In your message, include some information about your business and needs. The more details, the better. This gets me caught up to speed as to where you are in your journey.
Creating a Strategy
From our initial conversations, I'll caught up with your situation. More importantly, I'll have the information needed to craft a digital strategy specific to your needs. With this strategy, you'll have a road map for getting your business a foothold on the web.
Execute the Plan
Once there is a strategy, the next step is to implement it. If the tasks involve design, development, or website user experience, I'll handle it personally. For certain parts of the strategy, I may source it to professionals in my network. No extra effort is required on your part. I'll work with my team directly and always be your point of contact.
Once your website looks sharp and marketing strategy is in place, I'll keep an eye on key metrics for your business. Using this data, I can make recommendations or adjustments to the plan we have in place.
Web Design & Development
Here are recent examples of my work. With all of these clients, I played a major role in designing on-page experiences, developing their websites, and launching them onto the Internet.
Why Hire Dan?
I have spent more than 15 years in the web design industry. I know what works, I've seen what fails, and I know how to navigate business owners through the entire process.

I'm not just a web designer who can also develop websites. I have over a decade of experience running my own web based, web design business. I've been through the process, multiple times, for my own business, side businesses, and for hundreds of clients. You're getting an individual with a strong sense for business, someone who keeps up with current design trends, and web standards. I can take the guess work out of the whole process, ensuring a smooth ride from point A to point B, wherever you are.
I built my first website in 1998. My first client project was in 2004. Since 2008, I have been working in the industry full time. In the last few years, I've played a role in creating or improving over 200 different websites per year.
I have worked with over 2,300 clients spanning across over 75 countries. A majority of my clients are from the United States, the UK, or Australia.
This really depends on the job. By the time you're done working with me, you'll have a website that will work as a strong platform to grow your business. You'll have a strategy on how to market yourself online, what channels (web traffic) to put focus on, and a way to track your success online.
Many of my clients whom came to me for improving their current situations saw improvements as high as 700% in terms of monthly revenue.
I can design, develop, and deploy your website. On top of that, I can also help with the business model, and how it pertains to your website. Here's a summary of services I do offer.
- Domain registration & management
- Implementing HTTPS, SSL, and securing existing websites.
- Website design
- WordPress development
- Website content
- Post-launch website strategy
- Conversation rate optimization
- Usability and accessibility testing
I know where my strengths are. More importantly, I know where my strengths aren't. For certain web services, I must respectfully "bow out" - but don't worry, I can connect you with trusted professionals in my network to ensure top notch quality, end to end. Here are web services I do not personally offer, but have strong contacts for:
- Search engine optimization
- Search engine marketing (Bing Ads, Google Ads, Amazon Ads, etc)
- Social media marketing (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, etc)
- Email marketing (via Mailchimp, Constant Contact, etc)
- Certain data analysis task (Google Analytics, Search Console, Data Studio, etc)
Contacting me is a great way to begin. Before you do that, I have a few recommendations as to what you should have ready. This information will make the process quicker, and easier, for both of us.
- Where are you in your journey? Let me know if you already have a website, need a new website, or need changes made to it. If your company is brand new, that's important to let me know too.
- Have you invested in anything yet? Sometimes people have already bought a logo, domain, web hosting, brand/identity work, etc... Let me know if you've already have assets created.
- What is your timeline like? How fast do you need to move?
- Where are you located (and include a timezone)?
I'm usually booked up for a minimum of four (4) weeks. That doesn't mean we can't start chatting and getting a project brewing. I just can't jump into working immediately.
Thanks for asking! Web design is not just my career, but also a passion, so there are often days where you can find me hanging around the house, tinkering with code. I also enjoy getting outside and can be seen bicycling around town, gardening in the yard with my wife, banging on metal (blacksmithing), or just relaxing in a hammock.
