What if your hired a seasoned web developer who was not only trustworthy and reliable, but knows that your just don't want code written... But that you need to make a positive retun on your investment? That you want to make your business better off than it is today?
My name is Ryan Foster, and I am a web developer and designer. But I'm also a business owner. I've built my company and reputation on trust, hard work, and results. I want to learn about you, your company, and what you want tomorrow to look like for your business.
Together, we'll put together a plan of action that realizes that tomorrow, divided into specific milestones.
I don't just build websites — I build communication tools. My strategic approach to content development, design, user interaction, and programming has given companies like Aol, United Airlines, Herman Miller, O.C. Tanner, and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints the tools that they need to get noticed. And, help their audience find information they need, and discover products they want to buy.
I have one goal: To produce a significant return-on-investment for you and your business.
A: I've built my business on a foundation of reputation. My clients refer their colleagues to me because they know I have a track record of getting stuff done — of understanding the problem at hand, and putting together a plan of action.
A: I know that what you really want isn't a new website or app. What you want is more customers, more revenue, and more profit. I start each project by listening — I want to know everything I can about your business and what problems you face. Only then will I be able to help you put together a roadmap that charts out a plan to conquer your business problems and make you more money.
A: I don't want to have "former clients". I want to build long term, meaningful relationships with everyone I work with. This means acting on key performance indicators, and incrementally making the right adjustments that make your business more profitable for months and years to come.
I want to make sure you get the best possible partner imaginable. For the majority of clients I talk to, I think I'm that guy. But there are a few types of projects that don't always mesh with my process:
1. "We've Got It All Figured Out Already"
If you just want a web developer or designer who you'll give requirements to, we won't work well together. I'm an expert when it comes to the web and marketing, and I want to help you build the best solution possible given our combined expertise.
2. "We Love Our Rubber Stamps"
If you need signing off from a committee to get anything done, I'm not for you. I work very closely with each of my clients, and that means I need to be able to rapidly execute. If we're waiting for approval from a lot of different parties to get anything done, we'll both suffer.
3. "What Are Your Rates?"
If you're looking for the lowest possible price, you won't like my rate. And unlike many developers and consultants, I am very upfront about my rate. My rate is $95.00 per hour and it's not the cheapest. But if you want to make an investment in your business, and want to work with an expert consultant who's acutely aware that you need to recoup your investment and then some, let's talk.
I do digital differently. I pride myself on personalized attention to your project. Don’t hire me if you’re looking to be next in line on an agency conveyor belt. I become heavily invested in your project and I am passionate about delivering incredible results. Because of this fact, I only work with a very limited amount of clients at one time and spots are filling up quickly. Don't wait. Contact me today.
When we kick off your project, my first task is to immerse myself in your business. Anything and everything relevant to making your project a smashing success needs to be on the table. Prepare to answer some hard questions!
Then, we'll meet and talk about your goals with this project: If you could paint a perfect picture of tomorrow, what would that look like? What defines success? What would be a home run?
After I have a clear understanding of your goals, we'll create a plan of action to get us there. Working within whatever budget or time constraints you have, I'll make sure you get the maximum return for each dollar you invest in this project.
Finally, I'll get to work moving us toward the goalpost. Each week, you'll get to see the latest updates to your project, and we'll meet often to find out if there's a quicker and/or better path to get us to your goal.
I'm currently accepting new clients and would love to see if there's a mutual fit. All it takes is a quick email to me and we'll schedule a time where we can discuss your business, your project, and how I can help shape your businesses' tomorrow.
If you want to know more, please read success stories from past clients of mine. Find out who I've worked with, what problems they had, and how I went about solving those problems for my clients.
Continue reading for a summary of my capabilities. When you are ready, contact me for a consultation. But remember, I work with a limited number of clients at a time and available slots go quickly.
