As a web designer with extensive WordPress and social media experience, I take an integrated approach to marketing and design, developing tools that work for you—and your customers. I invest time in learning your business and understanding your customers and the people you need to reach. Based on that foundation, I analyze your needs, review your existing programs, and help you develop a strategy that best fits your business.

Currently I am available for hire for WordPress customizations and web/social media strategy consulting. You may contact me via email at cpolanosky [at] gmail [dot] com.
