About Mychelle Blake and Firelink Online Media LLC
Why Work With Me?
I am your Online Digital Consultant. I optimize your online presence with a variety of “designed for you” tools to meet your goals. Whether you need to get more sales for your project, bringing in more clients for your service, or finding more donors and support for your mission, you want to invest in a website that will make the difference and showcase what makes you stand out.
I believe in communicating regularly with you and keeping you updated throughout the entire process. Your website and social media are important facets of your marketing plan and you don’t need to feel overwhelmed by the process.
Often, businesses often focus too much on how their website looks and don’t focus enough on creating compelling content that will help them grow. Your website should work for you and solve your biggest problems. The websites I create and SEO plans help clients reach the public, promote their mission, or move their customers to action.
I have a professional background in marketing, communications, non-profit and association management, and animal behavior consulting. (Yes, you read that last one right!) I have worked for decades helping clients tell their story, focus their mission, and communicate their goals.
I have been an Online Digital Consultant for small businesses, national associations and governmental organizations. I love technology and digital communications. Even as a little girl I was psyched to be the first person on the block to have an Atari 2600!
I have been using the internet and creating websites since websites first existed. From there, I developed my web design, coding and communications knowledge through years of professional experience, as well as through certificate programs from UNLV. I am also proud to say I was one of the first graduates of the Las Vegas Iron Yard Front End Engineering Cohort, an intensive and exhausting 12-week program that tests your knowledge, creativity and mental endurance!
Websites That Inspire Action
The Internet can be a scary and confusing place but it doesn’t have to be! I help you by creating an effective website using design, content writing and search engine optimization without hassles, headaches or stress! I provide personalized service without overwhelming you with techie jargon or budget-busting features.
Whether you're starting out or need a redesign, I can build a strategic website that grows your business. I work with all platforms (though I may talk you out of a few!) and make specialty sites such as online stores and courses.
SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIZATION
Is your website coming up at the bottom of searches compared to your competition? Or not even on the first page? I can help by reviewing your site and creating a dedicated SEO and content plan to get your business noticed!
Helping your website to become accessible to people with disabilities is not only the right thing to do, it can also lead to potential lawsuits. I am well versed in web accessiblity requirements and can review and help set up your site to be in compliance with WCAG guidelines.
Which is a fancy term for "I write your website!" Writing for the web requires knowing best SEO practices and how to get your customers' attention. A beautiful website with ineffective copy won't help bring customers in the door.
Projects are priced out based on the particulars of the job and your specific needs rather than using one-size-fits-all packages. Investments for sites begins at $2,500 and up. SEO plans are also customized to your specific needs and the market you wish to target. Contact me to discuss your business goals and strategy and I can prepare a custom quote for you. Payment plans are available as well!
