My name is Laura Ball, and I feel that everyone deserves to have a great looking, professional website whatever their size or budget. With over 20 years of work experience in a variety of industries, I have developed a varied and unique set of skills that I am able to apply towards my design business. I have professional work experience with a variety of branding and desktop publishing such as logo design, brochures, business cards, flyers, postcards, catalogs, real estate information packets, email campaigns, mail merges, and more.
I have worked with many small business owners and entrepreneurs who had no web presence and needed a boost with a website and social media communication. Among the different types of clients I've worked with are a Montessori Preschool in Copley/Akron, a DJ/Master of Ceremonies in Canton/Cleveland, a Fire Safety and Education company in Akron, and even a Virtual Real Estate Assistant in North Carolina! Check out my portfolio for recent examples of my work.
My clients receive top-notch, personable customer service and availability on nights and weekends to ensure their satisfaction. I will guide you every step of the way and work with you to create a website for which you are proud and meets your needs.
I would love to discuss your project, your expectations and see how I can help you achieve your goal of a website that fits not only fits your needs but within your budget.
I am a web developer versus a designer. This means I use a designer’s mockups, templates or drag-and-drop builders to build a functional website. I may also add functionality to an existing website or help with things like troubleshooting and website maintenance. I also provide branding such as businesscard design and brochures to match the website theme and colors. Because I'm a developer as opposed to a designer, I can keep my rates lower and pass the savings to my clients!
I offer options for every budget and need. For the flat rate I can provide up to 6 hours of work including your home page, a contact page and three additional pages to describe you and your business. All you need to do is provide the text and images! Any additional work beyond the scope of the flat rate would be billed at $35.00 per hour.
If you're looking for site maintenance or general updates, my rate is $35.00 an hour.
If you need a domain name and a hosting plan, I can provide that through the hosting company I work with. If you already have a domain and a hosting provider, there is no additional fee. The hosting company I use provides SEO services for a yearly fee. I would also be able to help submit your website to the major search engines. I would be happy to help you set that up to ensure that the word gets out about you and your business to maximize exposure and grow your customer base!
Websites - I offer a variety of website packages from one time flat rates for a 5-page basic website to monthly maintenance packages to cover all of your regular updating needs.
Marketing/Advertising - Brochures, newsletters, flyers, mail merges, mass e-mail announcements, business cards, letterhead, invitations, postcards, labels, programs (music, theater, religious), etc.
Social Media - creation, maintenance and publication to the most popular social media sites to help promote your business such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and YouTube.

"...provided a wonderful website for my business. I met with her and told her generally what I was looking for. She took those ideas and designed a working model of our website. I took her lead and provided additional information to fill out the design which she then incorporated into the site. She was very easy to work with and provided a professional service. I will do business with her again."

"Laura was extremely professional and highly knowledgeable, she was very patient. She made the branded process very easy and joyful. It was great experience working with her, and she had tons of great ideas."
"She deserves SO much more than 5 stars! I recently moved here to Ohio from Texas and was rebranding my professional DJ service , specializing in weddings & black tie events. The market here, like Texas, is saturated with competition so it was very important for me to find someone qualified, talented and with a knack for creative vision. I contacted Laura thru a popular online marketplace and ran across her ad. I emailed her and she contacted me back super fast! She asked all the right questions right off the bat, and it wasn't long thereafter I knew she was THE one to bring my site to life, and boy did she ever !!! She always responded promptly and was very patient with me the entire process. She explained the process to me, offered me different options and even lent her talents to verbiage on my site. Which is no easy task ! It's as if she had known me for years honestly. The entire process with Laura was effortless, easy and she never ever made me feel like I was an inconvenience in anyway. She was extremely professional, courteous and went the extra mile , and in an industry such as mine, going the extra mile is of the utmost importance. She didn't have to, but she did....Every time. I would receive emails throughout each day keeping me up to speed on the progress and updates she was constantly making at my behest. I know maybe I wasn't the easiest client, but I can assure you, I am the most grateful. She's kind, a visionary genius as far as I'm concerned, and very well spoken and articulate. She has a keen eye for detail and because of her, I have a site that was completed fast, professionally designed and best of all I am proud of! She exceeded every bit of my expectations and I look forward to having her update it often. There's simply not enough words to describe her skills. Thank you Laura Ball!"
