Amy S. Chan's Experience
Freelance Web Designer
Sole Proprietorship; Myself Only; Internet industry
2013 – Present (1 year) Hawaiian Islands
While you might be on one or several social media networks, you still need a central place for your brand's online presence that is truly yours. Your website is your online home base. Not Facebook, not Google+, not Twitter.
A professionally designed website is an investment. It enables you to influence, inspire, or impress. If we work together, I will design a website that showcases your abilities, products, or services. It allows you to do business while you sleep.
Instead of spending painful hours trying to learn HTML and CSS, let me take care of that. (I love it and I'm good at it.) Are you ready to partner with me so you can focus on doing the work you're passionate about?
