Execution Strategy

BUILD – Website Development

Sapphire Falls Web Design specializes in website design and creates online experiences that help businesses grow. My websites are custom designed, responsive, made for scalability and capable of catering to any business needs.

Websites are built with open-source software (Joomla or WordPress), the world’s most popular website content management system (CMS) platforms. CMS allows me to build sites for scale and provides a user-friendly system for my clients to make basic updates. But I don’t just create awesome websites, I provide the tools and strategies for my clients to help them build a successful online presence!

MAINTAIN – Managed Web Hosting

If you don’t have a maintenance and security plan for your website, it’s only a matter of time before your website is hacked – plain and simple. When a website is hacked, it can be devastating. Not only will you potentially lose your current website with all the latest data, but it will have a drastic effect on your Google rankings and SEO standings. It’s not only important to have a prevention plan but also a backup plan in place.

While there is no guarantee anything on the internet can be 100% secure, there are precautions that can be taken to prevent potential hacks and site infections. That’s why I created a custom website security plan with cloud hosting that I offer to all my clients.

GROW – Local Organic SEO

Oh, the fun, intimidating, confusing, shady world of SEO (Search Engine Optimization). For a long time, I did not branch into SEO services. SEO needs vary drastically between clientele, industries, and goals per client. But no matter how beautiful a site looks, if it’s not getting found organically online, potential customers are not being reached.

That’s why I invested in one of the most complete sets of effective SEO software suites that is essential to achieve and maintain top positions in local organic searches without pay-per-click PPC advertising.  Focusing on organic search results, I get your business website better rankings when people search for your types of products or services.

How I Got Started

As an adult education instructor at Auburn Career Center (Concord Township, OH), my passion for web design influenced me to initiate a series of website programming courses utilizing open-source software to assist entrepreneurs in developing websites for local businesses. After several years of website freelancing, Sapphire Falls Web Design ™ officially launched in 2010.

In 2014, an opportunity led to relocating Sapphire Falls Web Design business to Franklin, TN. Sapphire Falls Web Design, LLC is now a licensed business in Tennessee.
