Arjuna Ghose – Freelance Web Designer in Halifax, NS for hire
Hi, my name is Arjuna Ghose, and I am a freelance web designer located in Halifax, NS most of the year. I’m going to guess you’re here for one of two reasons: 1) You’re in need of someone to design and build your website and you’re looking to see what your options are; or 2) you’re a freelance web designer yourself and you’re looking to build relationships with other designers. In either case, this article is for you and is written to help you get to know me a little.
Currently, I am the only employee, operating as a freelance web designer. I am passionate about what I do and enjoy investing my time and energy into my business. Did you know that freelancers, who now make up about one third of the American workforce, tend to be happier, more productive and more dedicated than regular workers?
I use WordPress as a content management system (CMS) for my websites. Unlike other complicated content management systems, WordPress is designed to be easy to use. For a website owner, posting content is as simple as composing an email or creating a Word doc.
I’ve created video tutorials for my clients to help them run their website through WordPress. Conversely, I can run your website, operate your blog, social media, and email marketing for you all for a nominal monthly fee. This will give you more time to do the things you need to do to run your business.
In fact, here is an (almost) comprehensive list of the things my company can do for you and your small business:
- Custom web design and development
- High quality look and feel (Branding)
- Search engine optimization (SEO)
- Mobile friendly
- WordPress integration (allowing you to update your website on your own)
- Free hosting and weekly backups of your website
- Social media integration
- Graphic deisgn (Corporate identity)
- Logo design
- Business cards
- Social media cover image design
- Content Creation (We can help you create the content for your website)
- Connect with your visitors on a personal level
- Pack the content of your website with personality and colour
- Find the passion in your business and let it shine
- Provide value
As a freelance web designer, my task is to build you a custom designed website that will be aesthetically pleasing, effectively express your brand, and can be easily found in the search engines, such as Google, Bing, and Pinterest. Some web designers don’t actually build (i.e. develop) the website; they just create the design in the form of an image. Some web developers aren’t good at design. I specialize in both; that is both design and development, and when I say development, that includes quality on-site search engine optimization (SEO).
My job is not to produce cookie cutter websites. I custom design your website so that I give you a unique personality.
With a background in graphic design, I started out in print design many years ago. After a few years, I decided I was more inclined to design websites. Now I am an expert in both design and development.
I help your business to stand out with a professional, high quality look and feel. The design of your website should help you stand out as an authority in your field.
When the design of your website is good enough that it helps you to stand out as an authority or a leader, that immediately builds trust between you and the visitors of your website, and they are more likely to purchase from you.
See for yourself what my passion and dedication for what I do as a freelance web designer can do for your small business.
