Hi! I’m Alexis. Allow me to introduce myself and share a little about how I got to where I am today…
I created my first WordPress website in 2010 to blog about the personal & spiritual development principles I was learning and passionate about sharing.
After 2 years of blogging, I realized I was getting pretty good at maneuvering the intricacies of websites and started to develop an interest in them. So I took my first online course to hone my skills and launched my online business as a Techie VA creating websites and managing the online businesses of other entrepreneurs.
Over the years I continued to enhance my skills with additional courses and added web design services to my Techie VA services. And eventually evolved my business into teaching non-techie entrepreneurs how to create their own business websites.
After taking a break from the online business world to pursue other ventures for a while, I started to craving the freedom of online income and the rewarding feeling of supporting passionate entrepreneurs and small businesses. So I up-leveled my skillset once again and decided to dive back in. Now, I offer custom website design, website maintenance, and SEO services to support the business community the best way I know how.
WordPress is used by 40% of all websites and is absolutely the best platform for your business website. And since I strive to use best practices for all my clients, it’s the only thing I’ve used and recommended for over a decade. WordPress gives you complete ownership, versatility, and scalability for all your business needs.
Divi (affiliate link) is one of the most popular WordPress themes and for good reason. As an incredibly powerful premium theme, it gives me the creative freedom and control to build a custom design for your site while also offering a user-friendly interface so that edits and updates are quick and simple for even a novice user.
It’s always important to use the best tools for website performance, security, and overall service so you can effectively do business online.
I recommend Namecheap for your domain name. Their annual pricing is the most affordable, considering they offer free data privacy protection, reliable service, and can easily connect to your website host.
Siteground (affiliate link) is not only recommended by me, but by WordPress itself, and is one of the best independently owned Managed WordPress Hosting companies. They offer excellent customer service, website security, performance, and more.
Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) is the best place to host your business emails ([email protected]). Google is one of the most reliable email providers available and using them keeps your emails out of your website hosting server which can clog up and slow down your site.
