Comfort Web Design?
My name is Linda Cook. I have been
designing websites since 1999 and specialize
working with small to medium size business
concerns all across the US.
I work with each client
to design specific graphics and layouts to best
showcase their businesses. But having a
great looking site is only the start of having
an effective website to increase your bottom
line. Once the design is complete I go to
work behind the scenes building out meta tags, google
verifications, site maps, geo maps, links, site
submission to all of the major search engines
and looking for trade links from other sites to
increase your site traffic. I enjoy
the challenge that each new site brings and can handle just about any project you need,
from simply adding one page to an existing site, or completely
starting from scratch. So if you're looking to design a new site
or re-do an old one; I'm here to help, call me.
|Can I maintain the
website myself once it is set up?
You can use the file manager html editor
through your hosting panel or any number of html
editors to edit your pages. I do not
recommend such actions since your website will
be custom designed and most likely contain
scripting that requires you know about html
computer language to effect changes correctly.
95% of my clients find my maintenance fees
extremely reason and your updates are done
How long does it take to set up a new account?
I process orders 7 days a week! Once an account is set up an activation notice will be sent to you via email including a userid,
password, and FTP hostname. If you are designing your own site you can begin uploading files to your new web site immediately.

design house to build your homepage?

companies say, learning and building a website can be very
frustrating, time consuming and difficult for the everyday PC
user. Unless you enjoy hours upon hours of surfing the net for
just the right graphics, learning how to use a graphic program to
create your own, then learning how to use an HTML editor and FTP
program to upload your files to the web, Comfort Webs is who you
need. My prices are affordable and my personal service will ensure
you a wonderful site that you will be proud to display. Personal
relationships with my clients are a must! I want your site to fit

|I'd like to
have a page that's very interactive with all the bells and
whistles! I want flash presentation, java scripting, applets and things like that. Will
that cost me extra?
Not at all, most design elements
such as java scripting and css style sheets comes included in the prices listed
on our pricing page. You'll find that I go the extra mile to
include many things in your package that cost extra with other
designers. I love a good challenge, and are prepared to bring
excellence to your site - no matter what you may want or need! The
only extra charge you will incur is if you ask me to retouch
photos or consistently change out graphics, photos, music samples,
etc. or if Flash Animation is requested. Those are separate
charges from your website cost. Ask me for details* The only thing
I ask is that you provide the text content for your site. I
can assist with some structural ideas but only YOU know your
business and how best to describe it.
