Consistent Image Web Design

WordPress Web Design and Development, StudioPress/Genesis Framework, SEO, Social Marketing, WordPress Set-ups/Installations, Training, Simple E-Commerce Sites

I design and develop custom websites for small to medium size businesses and non-profits in the Portland area and beyond. I mainly use WordPress and the StudioPress Genesis Framework for custom themes, but can also work with other WordPress themes and help brand or customize them. I use WordPress for both blogs and as a content manager so that clients can maintain their own websites, and I include WordPress training so they feel comfortable doing that. I also offer SEO optimization, social media, and email marketing services and integration. And if customers already have a website or a psd design, I can help convert those to WordPress. I’m a native Oregonian and I’ve been designing websites since 1998. I am experienced and reliable. There are many examples in my company website portfolio along with customer testimonials.

Michelle Panulla Web Services

PHP, HTML/CSS, jQuery, AJAX

I do WordPress development (custom post types, custom plugins, custom themes, Genesis framework, etc.). My ideal client is someone who either already has a site and needs to make it do more or someone who has a big project they are putting together that goes beyond the typical functionality of WordPress. For instance, I am about to launch a site that includes e-learning and certification for servers/sellers of alcohol for a Pennsylvania trainer. When the client contacts me, he/she can expect a free 30-minute consultation to see if 1) the project is something I would have time to schedule and 2) we are well-suited to work together.
