Web Design, Development & Strategy

I help businesses design strategic, innovative websites. Here are some examples of my work:

Design Process

As we work through the design process I will help you refine your web strategy to align with your overall business strategy.

Define

Together we will define your goals and requirements for your project, including:

  • Brand Identity
  • Audience/Ideal Client
  • Key Competitors
  • Calls to Action
  • Colors & Fonts
  • Key Features

Design

Next we will generate and refine ideas, sketches, and wireframes until you are ready to move forward.

During this phase I will also give you an estimate of the development cost and timeline.

Develop

Once you have approved the design direction I will get to work!

During development we will check in regularly—usually every other week.

Deliver

Time to unveil the result!

You can still request revisions, and of course the final go/no-go decision is yours to make.

Once we have finalized the project I will deploy it to your live website.

Technology

Websites will usually be built on the WordPress open-source content management system. WordPress is a powerful, flexible foundation for building everything from simple websites to sophisticated web apps. WordPress can also be integrated with lots of other software, such as project management software, CRM software, document assembly software, and more.

For hosting, I use SiteGround managed WordPress hosting. SiteGround includes daily backups, staging, enhanced speed and security, and a free SSL certificate for your website. (If your website is already hosted somewhere else, it can stay there if you prefer.)

Pricing

For most projects the cost depends on the work to be done. If you contact me and describe your project or the problem you are trying to solve I will do my best to give you a ballpark estimate. Then we can refine that estimate as we move through the design process.

Building or redesigning a website typically starts at $5,000.

I also offer hosting for your website or project for $99 per month. Hosting includes SiteGround managed hosting, select premium WordPress plugin licenses,* email configuration, maintenance, and support.

*Premium plugins currently included in the hosting plan are Advanced Custom Fields Pro and Gravity Forms.

About Me

Sam Glover

I have been building websites and web-based tools for longer than I have been a lawyer. In college I built websites for a European Star Wars convention and a video game startup. I built a website for the outdoor store where I worked evenings and weekends during law school. I built a website for the first law firm I worked for, and when I went to work for a larger firm I started that firm’s blog. Then I built my own firm’s website and blog and started Lawyerist, which I worked on until I left in 2020.

I’ve built dozens of websites and tools, Girl Skate Cos., Caveat Emptor, the Minnesota Black-Owned Business Directory, Lawyerist’s Small Firm Scorecard, City of Skate, and more.
