I design and build websites, mobile apps, & games, and I provide SEO services. See larger list here. I DO NOT CONSULT ON BUSINESS MATTERS, AND I DO NOT GUARENTEE THAT YOUR PHONE WILL RING AS A RESULT OF YOUR WEBSITE, MOBILE APP, GAME, OR SEO CAMPAIGN GOING LIVE.
You, the business owner, are solely responsible for knowing that you need a marketing plan. If you have no idea how to generate client calls, you may want to seek the advice of a business analyst or marketing specialist - I cannot help with that. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S FAILURE TO PLAN, OR LACK OF BUSINESS ACUMEN.
Search Engine Optimization (or optimizing your website for search acquisition) is not a marketing plan in and of itself. It is one small component of a much larger marketing & distribution strategy. I do not consult on or provide services to help you formulate this larger marketing & distribution strategy. If you fail to do the larger marketing & distribution strategy, my SEO work will be of little value to you. I HAVE NEVER, AND WOULD NEVER, GUARANTEE SEO RESULTS.
I am always happy to give freely where I can. So long as you understand that I DO NOT provide consultation on the following possible opportunities, and that they are offered for INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY, you are welcome to them: Click here
On the topic of HTTP verses HTTPS, you are solely responsible for knowing whether you want or need an SSL. If you have a membership site, and/or will be processing credit cards directly from your website (as in the case of a storefront with shopping cart software installed on your server), then yes, I highly recommend paying extra for an SSL. It is your decision either way.
Anyone can purchase hosting from GoDaddy today - the largest hosting company in the US by market share (as of 2018) - and take their site live without being forced to purchase an SSL. At the time of this writing - mid 2018, SSL's through GoDaddy are OPTIONAL - available via paid subscriptions only. (Note: There are some hosting companies that offer free SSL. I recommend contacting their support staff to ensure that the free version meets your needs.)
To Summarize – I design and develop websites, mobile apps, and games, and I provide SEO services. See larger list here. I DO NOT CONSULT ON BUSINESS MATTERS, AND I MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT GUARANTEE YOUR BUSINESS SUCCESS, OR SEO RESULTS.
