Hello. I’m Kristi.
I build websites, optimize content for search engines, and write copy for conversion.
If you need a website, I can help. I began my web career in the ’90s, which means I have been planning, designing, building, and optimizing websites for more than half my life! It’s definitely my No. 1 passion.
Writer & Editor
Content is king, especially in the digital age. I am an award-winning writer with specialized training in conversion copywriting and writing for SEO. I’m passionate about testing, iteration. and measuring results, so I especially love writing advertisements and landing pages for paid media/PPC.
Though my foundation is building websites from scratch via HTML and CSS, these days I love to work on WordPress. It’s SEO-friendly out of the box, highly extensible, budget-friendly, and perfect for marketing websites!
Search Engine Optimizer
A well-designed website is more than just a digital property for your business; it’s a precise marketing tool. But first, you need to attract the right audience. That’s where I come in. I’ve been optimizing websites for search engines for more than a decade. My services include competitive analysis, keyword research, technical SEO, and content creation so your site can rank high on Google.
An effective website not only attracts the right audience, but it also inspires them to take action. For many businesses, this action is converting visitors from prospects to lead (and eventually paying customers). I am a certified conversion optimizer and digital psychology specialist. My experience includes website audits, heuristic analysis, landing page optimization, digital analytics, and A/B testing.
