Why I love doing small business web design

April 9th, 2012

Every once in a while, I am reminded why I love doing small business web design for a living. I had one of these moments a few months ago.

One of the neat things about doing small business web design, is that you get to know a lot about the companies you do the websites for. Working with small business websites is especially fun because you’re often dealing directly with the business owners themselves. You get to hear their passion for what they do.

It’s also fun to work with small business owners who are in the Seattle area, because you get to run into them as you go about your day. I’ve seen an electrical contractor van that I did a website design for, as well as a metal recycling truck whizzing down Hwy 99. Each time it takes my brain a few seconds to realize why the logo or business’ name is familiar. It’s because I’ve done their website design.

Another reason it’s fun, is because you learn all about their small business as part of doing the web design. For example, when I did a website for a hay farmer, I learned that depending on the time of year, the nutritional makeup of the hay changes dramatically. Who knew? Now, I know a little more about hay. 🙂
