Effortless Web Designs.
Unlike most website creation businesses out there, my approach is marketing plus design. With my 20+ years sales and marketing background, it's not just about aesthetics but defining the variables that will bring visitors to your website and a return on your investment.
There are many platforms for building websites yourself such as Go Daddy, Wix and Squarespace. But not everyone is a "pro" or tech savvy to get one started. Or if you're like most small business owners, who has the time? This is where I come in! Not only can I get your site up and running quickly, but I will produce a high-quality website that you can be proud of and get a return on your investment. Then after I create your website and publish it, I hand it over to you! After some basic training, you just do the easy part and simply maintain it. That is why I use platforms like Wix and Squarespace so it's easy for you to edit and update. Or if you choose to keep me on retainer to maintain your website, I can do that, too. Oh, and if you need a new logo or a logo upgrade, my services can include that as well.
My approach is simple: each website is marketing plus design. With your input, I will develop your site by first identifying your audience, what they're looking for, and the next step they want to take. For example, my process would mean defining those variables to convert leads to customers or attract and convert visitors to members. And that’s marketing. I do marketing first and design second. Bottom line, it's not just about a pretty website. I ‘get it’ when it comes to determining what the primary purpose of your website is.
My focus is partnering with small - medium business owners to promote their business and generate revenue as quickly as possible. With the digital age, it's more important than ever to have an online presence to reach more potential customers and/or visitors. I also have a soft spot for non-profits such as ministries and causes. I am not doing this to get rich, so I try to keep my costs low and explore creative ways to stay within your budget. And if you're still not convinced, I will design a complimentary mock-up of your site before you sign or pay for anything. If that interests you, contact me today!

"Lina Cardenas is creative, tech-smart and business savvy. I recently had the pleasure of working with her to design and launch the TERI organization’s website. Once on-board, she jumped in immediately bringing her creative talents to page design and ensuring brand consistency. She also brought an intuitiveness to the site which greatly improved our users’ experience. Since her redesign, our page visits continue to climb, and I fully expect that to continue. Finally, she’s wonderful to work with! Hire her – you won’t be sorry!"

"Just started my own business and wanted to work with another small business. Along came Lina. We had a Zoom consultation and from there she was able to help bring my idea into fruition. Lina was patient with me as I was juggling different roles in my life, work, business, family and personal. My website became the last on my priority list for a few months. Lina did not pressure me at all to complete the website. Fast forward to 2022 and I was ready to get my website up and running. There were some changes to the original plan but Lina was able to work with me and accommodate me to meet my timeline and stay within my budget. Lina was responsive to my phone calls, emails & text. Easy to communicate with and approachable. I am happy with how my website looks and satisfies my business needs. Thank you so much!"

Her years of experience lends extra support and great feedback in helping new business owners like myself much needed help to move my vision forward. For many, it is hard to seek help due to lack of finances, confidence in another’s abilities but I can promise you 100% satisfaction. I rate her a 5 out of 5 stars and encourage you to seek her for support if you are needing to create a website, business cards and/or other."
