My name is Ryan Postell, I'm a stay at home dad in Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island, WA. I got started building websites for a good friend who owns a design firm in Chicago. I took over clients from small businesses with small budgets and tried to give them the best possible websites.
I've always been artistic, so this job came naturally to me. I used to draw portraits and paint on commissions since I was in high school. I found I really love creating and putting my art out there in the world. So it was no surprise when I started doing web design it came naturally and I loved it.
I studied more and more about design, SEO, and how to build and write content that not only looks amazing, but also helps rank higher on search engines. Once I got comfortable in my work I decided to try and find my own clients and work for myself. I still only offer my services to small and local businesses and my pricing is geared specifically for their budget. I started in April of 2019 and I am slowly building reputation as the top small business web developer.
Why Work With Me
I too am a small business, and I understand how important customer service is when your business is on the line. With some of those bigger firms you'll have to send emails and wait to hear back or call and get put on hold.
But when you call or email me you will hear from me right away and I will address any situation or question you have regarding your site. With Oak Harbor Web Designs you'll always have your website guy on stand by and ready.
I personalize all of the content on the website tailored to you, your business, and your personality.
I know from experience the bigger marketing firms outsource their web design and content writing overseas and just copy and paste text into a cheap and poorly made template that isn't optimized for proper SEO. It's just impersonal boiler plate web design. There's no character or personality to your site. I take the time to get to know your business and write everything from scratch.
Small Business Websites - By A Small Business
I currently offer web design, content writing, logo design, and SEO optimization for your small business for a small monthly fee with no upfront costs.
