Rick and Katherine Palmer founded the company in 2002 after years of providing free design and writing services to friends and acquaintances. They soon found a ready-made market for their services in the small business community with owners who wanted to get their businesses online at an affordable price. For ten years, they have designed and hosted websites and provided print media for local individuals and companies.
"We pride ourselves on personalized service,” said Rick. “Many of our clients have tried do-it-yourself web design companies and found that template-driven sites are unprofessional looking, take up a lot of their time, and are a waste of money.
“Unlike many web design companies, we help our clients create written content for their sites. In addition to developing a website for a client, we can design a business logo, and take care of all the technical details, like domain name, hosting, email setup, search engine optimization, and even integrating your company Facebook page. We enjoy getting to know our clients, and we take an interest in seeing that their businesses succeed.”
Rick says many of their clients transferred existing sites to Palmerworks after being unable to reach their former designers for updates and other services.
“We are not a fly-by-night company. We’ve been in the business for ten years, and plan to be around for a long time. When you need changes to your site, due to price increases, employee turn around or other issues, we’ll have those updates done within the week,” said Rick.
Palmerworks also designs and produces newsletters and other print materials for small businesses.
The future looks promising for Palmerworks. "We plan to keep growing the company," said Rick, "and we're going to focus on helping business owners develop ecommerce sites. We'll bring the same level of personalized service and affordable pricing to that aspect of web development."
To celebrate their 10th anniversary, Palmerworks Design is offering a complete 5-page site for 10% off until the end of October 2012. Visit their website (www.palmerworks.com)
