Pritchett Web Design
Welcome to PritchettWebDesign.com! Montgomery Alabama's common sense web designer. I've been serving the website needs of local small business owners in the Montgomery Alabama area and elsewhere since 1996.
Making a good website isn't rocket surgery (I know), but so many web designers make it more complicated than it needs to be. I've always taken a common sense approach to web design...keep it simple and keep it honest. The websites I make are easy to read and navigate, and the main focus is placed on the "message" and not the website. And this is something that your visitor's will appreciate!
I've helped many small business owners with their website needs and I can help you as well!
I made my first business website in 1996 and I've made many more since then. Over those years I've seen many website fads come and go and the dust kicked up by many a web designer trying to keep up with them. I'm not a fad chaser, never have been. Instead I like to stick with what works - simple and honest websites.
You may be wondering what I mean by "honest" websites. Quite simply, it's a website that doesn't over build the business it's meant to serve.
I'll give you an example.
A young smooth talking web designer walked into a small auto repair facility that was located in an old building on the edge of town, and told the owner that he could make him a website that would bring people in the door by the droves. The owner went along with it, but the website was a failure because it was dishonest. It depicted a new state-of-the-art facility with brand new equipment and tools, and technicians wearing sparking clean uniforms. In reality, it was an old shop with old tools and equipment, the shop was dirty and untidy, and the men wore dirty uniforms covered in grease.
Rather than make a website that highlighted the shop's positive points such as extremely knowledgeable mechanics, very reasonable rates and a friendly staff, the web designer chose to put forth an unrealistic image. That was dishonest. Some may call that good marketing. I call it dishonesty and I will not make a dishonest website.
I make simple and honest websites. By simple I mean - simple to use, read and navigate. And by honest I mean that I do not try to make the business more than what it is. I'd rather help make the business better than to make it sound better.

I do not make Worpress websites. I can, but I choose not to because I don't like Wordpress for business websites. For one thing, I don't need Wordpress. I can create databases and write the code to make your website dynamic or as functional as you need it to be. Other web designers may have to use Wordpress, but I don't! ;)
I got a call one day from a guy that owns a self storage company in Florida saying he needed a website. I said okay, and I made him one. His only involvement in the website process was to give me the specific information about his business that I asked for to use as his website's content. With his website he had the ability to change prices and availability of his storage units with just a few clicks. He could make coupons in just a couple of minutes that were instantly displayed on his website that people could print out and bring in for special savings. His website had a contact form so that people could ask him questions without him having to expose his email address on the web. Within just a few weeks of going live with his website, it dominated on all the search engines in his area. It commanded the #1 position in organic search results on all the search engines and still does today.
As his needs grew so did his website. After a while he called me and said he needed a way for people to put in a reservation request for a storage unit, so I made one. Some time later he wanted his renters to be able to pay their storage rent online, so I made a payment program for his website. Many people have reserved units through his website and he has collected many thousands of dollars in rent through his website. His website has been actively working to make him lots of money...it's very dynamic!
Many years ago I made a website for a guy in Florida that owned a monument company. He was a simple, honest man that worked very hard. I made him a simple, honest website and it has dominated the #1 position on all the search engines since the time I went live with it. He too, has made many, many thousands of dollars from that simple little website. People from all over the country with loved ones who had passed away that lived in the area, contacted him through his website requesting a monument to be made and installed on their loved ones grave.
Do a search for a monument co in Gainesville FL and see if OT Davis Monument Co. doesn't come up in the #1 position in the organic (free) search results. Search for a self storage co. or facility in North FL or in Williston, FL and see if North Florida MIni Storage (willistonselfstorage.com) doesn't come up in the #1 position of the organic search results.
These are just two websites that represents a classic simple informational website and a more involved dynamic website. Which would be better for you will depend on your business and your needs. I will be glad to help you choose the type that will be right for your business.
Non-Typical Web Designer!
One thing that makes me a non-typical web designer is that I don't work under a contract. When I make a website for someone and they like it - they pay me, I give them a receipt and upload it to their server. If they don't like it - I keep it and they don't pay me. It's just that simple
If a client wants me to maintain their website they pay me at the beginning of each month or for 6 months in advance, and I'll give them a receipt. When they want to end the maintanence they just stop paying me.
I can also make updates to a client's website on an as needed basis for a one time fee.
