If a customer can't see your site on a phone, how will they find you?

At Blogsite Studio, I design every website to be mobile friendly. That way, every time a potential customer navigates to my client’s site on a smart phone, the information is presented as crisply and clearly as it would on a desktop computer.

What my clients say

Mari designed a beautiful site that graphically represents the travel experience. She listened closely and found the solutions we needed to present the information the way we wanted it. Additionally, thanks to Mari’s thorough training skills, our members are now able to design and create their own profile pages as well as post to their heart’s content. I would whole-heartedly recommend Mari for both designing sites as well as training users on WordPress.

"Mari Kane did an excellent job at helping me get my website up and online. She is very adept with Word Press and gave me numerous options while creating the site. Once we knew what direction we were taking she offered several inventive ideas. Mari is a good problem solver and came up with quick and clever expedients. I’d definitely recommend her services."

WordPress 4.7 is the Sarah Vaughan of Versions
WordPress Version 4.7 was released yesterday by the name of Sarah Vaughan and I could not be more thrilled. First Dinah Washington, then Billie Holliday and now "Sassy" Sarah! Now I can stop kvetching that WordPress doesn't name enough versions after women. Thank you Mr. Mullenweg!
