Questions and Answers about Minnesota Web Design

A little extra work caters to your customers wherever they're at

Responsive design means that your website will conform to different devices. Whether it be a phone, a tablet or a phablet your website will be there and look great. Responsive design requires a bit of extra programming and a bit more designing than websites required several years ago.

Simplicity in design = High Quality focus on your brand and content

Though the amount of devices have gone up and possibly partially for that reason, the patterns for visual design that are standard have simplified. I create websites that are focused on converting your visitors into customers and presenting the best face possible for your company, even when you're sleeping.

Experience and Expertise

I've built responsive designs for 6 years, and my responsive development techniques have improved over those 6 years. I've even been featured in an article by eCommerce leader Lemonstand in their article '9 Expert Tips On Designing A Better m-Commerce Experience'.

Design in Development means quality control to the very end.

I think that design in the development phase is required so that elements such as different size screens and interactive elements get the attention they deserve. In modern web design, a freelancer who pays attention to these interactive elements can finesse them and make sure they offer your customers a pleasant, seamless experience that associates your brand with quality.

Built on WordPress, so editing content is easy for you

What was once a blogging platform has turned into one of the most respected web design platforms out there. I create websites on this platform in a way that is considerate of the fact you don't want to have to come to me to add bits of content down the road. With this platform, you can do those things yourself. I'm always available to help, but you shouldn't feel constrained by your website.

Website design that is built around the things you care about most.

I listen when you talk about what you need in your website. I know that for most small business owners hiring a web design freelancer is not a small deal. I want you to get the best value you can get in Minneapolis area, or Minnesota in general. I pay attention to making sure my affordable.

I believe that the more you know about your WordPress website, the better you will be able to market yourself, create content and give value to your audience and customers. You can do as little or as much of this as you want, but for sure I want you to be able to edit key elements on your website. After the web build is done, I'll sit with you and show you how you can get the most out of it.

Marketing best practices for your new site

I am not the expert in your industry, but I am in web design. I've been watching what works for 40+ plus clients, watching their analytics and becoming familiar with the types of web marketing that drive traffic and convert into customers. I can help share the principles I've learned in digital marketing that can help you with your business now.

You don't need to be a website guru

You didn't spend years learning to become the expert in your field, to have to learn website design, even if you're using a cheap template from Wix, or setting up a subscription at Squarespace. I help develop the quality graphics that represent your business in a professional light, without relying on cheap pre-built templates that blend in with 5 of your competitors.

I serve the Minnesota area

There are only so many legitimate web design businesses in the Minnesota area that will have the kind of quality I think your business deserves an affordable price. Many of the lower end shops are serving up templated designs that might not really be built around your needs, but are more for the convenience of the creator of the website. Many custom shops have prices over 30k, and I can say for a small business that's just not feasible or necessary.

Minnesota web design means we can meet up!

You may prefer to work with someone you can meet up with, and I've found that to be a great system for creating rapport, and the trust necessary to really deliver a great website based on your marketing goals. I think of your website as another salesman, and if you can hire another salesman to deliver great lead generation or more sales for you, then you've got a bargain.

Web design and development in Minnesota means you get homegrown style

I am not from California, nor the middle of Oregon so I'm not creating something that doesn't match the cultural norms and expectations of your local community. I do have style that surpasses many agencies in town and the ability to execute on that. I'd love to work with you. If the type of work I do interests you and you would like to work together or sit down for some coffee, get a free consultation now.

Imagine a bold looking website that works on all devices where you can edit the content bringing you customers.

I work with small businesses and organizations to create something that tells their story. I generally create on WordPress, but I feel comfortable working with many different platforms. I’d love to sit down with you and have a no pressure conversation with you about how I might be able to serve you with high-quality web design in Minnesota. Check out some of my work and I look forward to hearing from you.

Intentional design– crafted deliberately with their company's main differentiation at the heart.

  • Responsive Web design that will allow people to view your website on whatever device they came up with next.
  • E-Commerce design if you're in need of that. Whatever Content management system your site is in, I can help you with that.
  • SEO Conscious Web Design allows me to help you create a site, constantly thinking about how each element will affect the way Google digests the site. Highly important in this day in age, building the website in a way that allows you to put out content directly related to your business will give your website staying power and influence.
  • Pleasant Customer Service is the name of the game for a one-designer team. I have resources that I can use if I'm in need of a different skill set than mine, but I like to be there for any customers I have personally and look to delight by going above and beyond in getting you the best possible quality website.
  • Custom Web Design allows me to make your website without limitations. I create websites with code but always considering the visual and marketing aspects first and foremost.
  • Socially Connected Web Design leverages the innate interactivity of the web for your venture without getting ridiculous. I can help you pinpoint what the most important social networks are for your particular business and highlight those on your website where appropriate.
  • Marketing Centric Web Design is all about showing what makes your business so special. This is my main point of differentiation because I'm passionate about what makes your business different from your competitors, through a complimentary combination of appropriate headlines and visual imagery.
  • User Experience Design is all about making things clear and easy to navigate. This is central to my process while I create websites. I may start with a sketch on a napkin, or code for hours, but in the end, my process is dedicated to a couple central visual ideas that demonstrate what makes you different. Your customer, in the end, is who I aim to delight and serve, as I tell your business's story and draw them to your main conversion goals, allowing you both to benefit from a positive experience. And if you're in MN, I'm your neighbor - benefit from proximity from my professional Minnesota web design services.

I am a small business owner who was referred to Hook Agency to develop my website, promoting and advertising my business. The first time I spoke with Tim I knew his company would be a good fit for my business. The entire Hook Agency team was very responsive, acommodating, patient, and easy to work with. They made the whole process productive and stress-free. I recommend their services to anyone starting a business or for those who simply would like the best agency supporting their business.read more

Truly honest and caring people - I reached out to Hook Agency to schedule a consult with them, and I received a call from Tracy Kelly the same day. He was personable, kind, and took the time to explain what I was looking for wasn't a fit for their agency, but went completely above and beyond to talk to 2 other businesses to see if they would be interested in working on the project I have in mind, and then sent me a follow up email with their contact information. I am so impressed with the Tracy and his honesty and integrity. If you're worried that someone is going to sell you on services you don't need - you can expect a breathe of fresh air with Tracy and Hook Agency.read more

I was looking for agencies because we wanted to create a new website and blog. Hook was one of our top choices, but admittedly, I was nervous based on the fact they had not done work in my industry before. Fast forward to a year later, and I couldn't be happier. The team at Hook is responsive, resourceful, creative, and fun to work with. We have great content on our blog, and website continues to grow each month. I'm "Hook"ed!read more

Tim and the entire Hook Agency team has been the exact partner my company needed for all things web design, SEO, and even digital marketing strategy. Was hesitant at first with the complexity of my industry, but they have far exceeded expectations with research and content development. Our SEO position and inbound leads were almost nonexistent. Within three months our website authority and position had drastically increased, and we were consistently receiving organic leads. Now we have closed our first inbound lead as an organization and are transitioning to let Hook manage our PPC. As a small business, Tim has been helped us get the best bang for our buck while getting to know our company and process to help achieve our goals. We have used several large and small SEO companies in the past, but Hook Agency's management has provided the first measurable difference and growth. Would highly recommend!read more

We considered several web-design firms before selecting Hook Agency to redesign a large portion of our company site, and we're incredibly happy with the results. Not only was the team able to create exactly what we wanted, they've come up with some great compromises between keeping our brand voice and SEO writing, providing solutions that I'm confident no other firm would be able to dream up. It's been a very collaborative process and we're seeing great outcomes. They've also provided technical support on some small web issues, which takes major headaches off our plates as a small business without a full-time IT department. We absolutely recommend them!read more

Very impressed! Long story short, our company website that was hosted elsewhere somehow lost data and went down. When the hosting company failed to do anything about it Hook Agency didn’t hesitate to help. They went above and beyond to get us back up and running. They made us feel confident and comfortable with what they were doing and explained everything each step of the way. I would definitely recommend them!read more

Super impressed with Tim. I had no idea how to find a web developer in my budget. Even though he was well out of my price range, he still very kindly took the time to suggest a few options and and walked me through how pro web developers operate. Class act! Thank you!!

HOOK made the complex topic of SEO far less intimidating. They were patient and understanding with our learning curve. They worked "with" us, educating us as to where the opportunities were. They identified what "they" could do for us and even more valuable, what "we" could and should be doing for ourselves. HOOK and their style of full transparency, had us feeling comfortable immediately and ultimately feeling like we had a trusted partner working for our best interests. We look forward to our future collaboration and success!read more

Without even paying a dime, Tim looked at my google analytics account and my google console account and gave invaluable free advice.

Tim and his team were collaborative, responsive, fast and delivered quality work on a tight timeline. The Wordpress pages they built are easy to update, mobile friendly and we plan on using the template they built for landing pages down the road. Tim also provided insightful guidance on SEO and lead generation best practices along the way.read more

When I began searching for an SEO agency last year, I received a lot of generic proposals from SEO agencies who wanted our money but didn't show any dedication to learning our niche industry. Tim, on the other hand, came to the table armed with a list of keywords to go after, goals to reach, a knowledge of what our competitors were doing, and an eagerness to understand our industry. Since then, Tim has shown a deep commitment to our success and has gone above and beyond to make sure we reach the goals we set. In the last year, our company has experienced a 30.8% increase in conversions from organic search (3mos/3mos) and a 135.06% increase in page views from organic search (3mos/3mos). The conversation has shifted from "let's get more leads" to "we need to hire more employees to handle all this new business." Tim has been incredible to work with, and I'd recommend him highly to anyone looking to hire an SEO specialist.read more

“My company launched our completely revamped website and couldn't be happier with the way the site turned out, and our experience with Tim B Design. They took our old website with outdated graphics, poor sales results and transformed it into a modern, incredibly attractive and sales thriving site. In 6 short months we have seen a 300% increase in sales by online traffic, a greater return than we had ever imagined. Our product keywords are up over 350% and our website can easily be found on top of any major search engine. When we met with them to discuss the project, we were immediately impressed with how easy they were to communicate with—just real, down to earth, believable people that don't talk over your head with tech jargon. They listened and spent ample time understanding our products and message to make sure the site layout was exactly what we wanted.These days, I feel that people get to know your business through your website before they even walk through your door so it better be a good first impression. Our site brings in new clients every single day. The best part is that my website is so easy to use, I am able to edit content whenever I need to. It’s become such a great tool for my business. I am so in love with my branding, I receive compliments everyday. The Tim B Design team is amazing. They are creative, quick and so much fun to work with, I highly recommend them to any business.”Brad LorenceOwner, Banksystems Marketing Incread more

Tim B Design is exceptional to work with! He and his team have a great attitude, they've shown excitement in helping my business, and they are go getters! When I first contacted Tim on his website he responded to me almost immediately which was great. After our first face to face meeting I knew I wanted to work with him. I agreed to have them design my logo and build my website. In the process of doing that Tim thoroughly educated me on the importance of SEO which I knew very little about. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything while he was educating me but I decided to enter in an agreement for that too. Shortly after starting SEO they had availability to take over my social media accounts and I jumped at that opportunity. I put my full trust in them and they are doing great with all of it. Because of their work I've already seen growth in the number of sales leads generated by my website which is terrific! If you need help with any of these areas you need to contact Tim B design. Thank you Tim and Bea!read more
