Are these mistakes causing you to lose website visitors and money?
7 mistakes that can seriously derail your website, costing you lost customers and income. What they are and how to fix them.
The big “Why”
Today, if you aren’t online, you don’t exist. Because that’s where people go to check us out and determine if we are for real.
Yet there are over 1 BILLION websites. And at least 3.5 BILLION internet users. Fortunately, you don’t have to reach ALL of them. Just those who want and will use your services or products or who share your cause.
There are many ways to get your message online, but only one that lets you fully control it and OWN it: a website. Your website that is the hub for all your online activity.
I deliver results that I’m proud of, that my clients are proud of and that work for them. True success is shared success.
To that end, I don’t just build a website (or create a design) — I review your business model and strategy. If needed, we’ll clarify them together. Then I provide a solution that will work well throughout its lifetime. It’s all about a relationship that goes beyond the initial project. Because getting you connected with your tribe is what I do.
Work with us
The Drug Store
Family owned community pharmacy committed to awesome customer service with staff that truly cares.
The Unity Games
Connecting youth on Staten Island and in the other New York boroughs through basketball to bridge ethnic and religious differences, building friendships since 2003.
Our old website hadn’t been updated in a long time. But the biggest problem was that the online prescription refill function wasn’t reliable. So orders got lost and customers were upset. It cost us real money every day!
Claes created a temporary website with a new process for online prescription refills that worked perfectly. We weren’t losing money and customers any longer.
Then he worked with us to design a new website that shows off our pharmacy at its best and is helping bring in new customers. As a result, we have seen our online prescription refills triple!

Our first website was fine, but our web master was a disaster.
By 2012, we asked Claes to help us. The entire process was so much easier and more effective. We were able to give our input on the design and he really responded to our thoughts. He also was able to fully integrate our website with Salesforce.
In 2016, we decided we wanted a new look to attract not just kids, but donors and sponsors. Claes completely revamped the site, giving it a fresh new look that was also mobile friendly! The response to the site from everyone has been overwhelmingly positive. This year Claes has done even more to streamline our workflow, updating our application forms with e-signatures so that we can go paperless!

The one with “Not Secure”
Are you seeing more websites show up as “Not Secure” recently? The major web browsers now are “outing” websites that don’t use secure connections. For good reason.
Oops — did I do that?
“Did I do that?” was the trademark phrase of the ever clumsy Steve Urkel on Family Matters. Blunders are for laughs on sitcoms. Not so much in real life. Yet we still find ourselves having to say “Did I do that?”
The power behind 1/3 of the top 10 million websites
Did you know that 1/3 of the top 10 million websites in the world are powered by WordPress? And the number keeps growing!
Suddenly gone — where’s my website?
The Swedish passenger train company MTR Express recently found themselves cut off from their customers. Their website, where people book travel on their trains, was gone.
7 ways limited funds can work in your favor
The best way to start a new venture is surely to have all the funds you could possibly need. Because no worries. Or maybe it’s really a good thing to work with limited funds.
Is Google marking your website “Not Secure”?
They told us they would do it, a long time ago. And now they are.
The website design process
“What’s involved in building a website and how long does it take?”
So glad you asked.
The beauty of brevity
If one word in time is good, two must be better and a whole page absolutely wonderful. Right? Or maybe not! Why brevity may be the best policy.
Picking an email service provider
Inbox full of spam? Thinking of changing your email service? I was there and went through the process. Then walked through it again with clients. Here’s what I learned.
