"Jackie is helpful, flexible and very reasonable."

As a small, social enterprise with tight budgets and much multi-tasking on our plates, this is the ideal combination for a web developer to help you shift to a more professional-looking website. We particularly appreciated her collaboration with Amy Purdie to bring us a design in keeping with the fab branding Amy produced.

What is a meta description?

Page meta descriptions are the little snippets you see underneath your site name in Google search results, and are invaluable for improving your Google ranking.
