What some have said about Tinynow

Thank you Matthew Kreiling and Tinynow Design for spending so much time with me getting my website up and running. So great to work with someone that invests in more than just the technical and visual but takes a true interest in what messages I have for my clients, who I want my clients to be and how I want them to feel.

The Family Support Center was looking for a flexible, knowledgeable, available, creative and solution-oriented website resource (that we could afford) when we first connected with you/Tinynow Design.  We feel that we’ve found all that in our working relationship with you.

Matt HornyakDevelopment DirectorThe Family Support Center

Matt got our website up and running on budget and on time with no issues or problems.  He is easy and fun to work with.  We didn’t pay him with chicken feathers or next year’s cherry harvest, we paid him with cold corporate cash.  Money well spent.

If you want to be a part of the web design process and then take it over to manage and maintain yourself, I highly recommend Tiny Now.  Matt is one of my favorite professionals to work with; he’s knowledgeable, informative and he cares about his clients.  He really took the time to make sure I understood all the components, and he’s always there when you need him.

Thank you Matt!   You are absolutely delightful to work with, and the end result far exceeded my expectations.

WordPress – nerd tested

Your most valuable take-away will be your WordPress website. WordPress is a scalable open-source content management system. custom wordpress web design

  • Scalable means that it will grow with you, even if you grow bigger than sites like CNN or The New York Times, which use WordPress.
  • Open-source means it is created and supported by a community of nerds, a huge community of nerds.
  • A content management system or CMS, unlike many sites, allows non-nerds to upload, update, rearrange, or otherwise manage content.

Contact me and we can talk about how to make WordPress work for you and yours.

Content Strategy

There is an expression among internet marketers and others…content is king. It means that without the words, images, video and audio, your website design means nothing and will do nothing for your business. Creating quality content is usually a bigger challenge than building the website, but is often not considered when designing.

Content strategy means inventorying, analyzing, and organizing content. It means developing a plan to create and manage content. But first, it means defining why you are on the web in the first place.

The problems that a good content strategy can eliminate include:

  • Outdated content
  • Content that can’t be found
  • Broken links
  • A hodge-podge of visual styles
  • A hard to navigate site
  • Confusion about who should post what and when

 

Benefits of a good content strategy include raving fans, happy employees, and less reliance on the web guy.

Creating effective content is a lot of work. Let’s make it as easy as possible.

Responsive, Future-friendly Design

A responsive web design means that the layout and other aspects of the site change depending on what device is being used to view it.  People can access your site on phones, laptops, iPads, or refrigerators.

Future-friendly is a design philosophy that acknowledges and embraces unpredictability. It means reacting to today’s concerns but also building long-term value.

About Tinynow

Tinynow Web Design in Olympia, WA is me, Matt Kreiling, plus occasional sub-contractors. My business is about creating beautiful custom WordPress websites, and preparing businesses and organizations to successfully market themselves on the web.

Tinynow is about a lot of things. A weird name for a company, likely a result of too much poetry writing. Tinynow is about how short Now is. Not just a philosophical idea, it relates directly to the attention span of your customers. Visitors to websites need to find what they are looking for, or something interesting within less than 7 seconds. That is how tiny now is.

Tinynow is also about reducing dependencies, smallness of code, making small changes in your approach now for giant benefits in the future. The continuing growth of the web will make Now seem tiny compared to the future.
