Let's Work On Your Small Business Together

My name is Dave Soucy and I work with small businesses like yours on their websites and online presence. But that's only part of the deal.

What I really work on is your business and digital marketing strategy. And I do that by learning about you, your business, your goals, and your customers.

I've been running my own businesses online since 2004 and have been helping clients get unstuck for over a decade. If you're ready to take your business to the next level, I'd love to work with you to get it done.

Why You Need More Than A 'Pretty' Website

Successful websites aren't simply pretty. Your small business website needs to be conceived with your ideal clients in mind, and designed to lead visitors to take the type of action you want them to take.

Audience

Too often small business owners believe that their product or service is for everyone. Spoiler Alert: It isn't.You need to define your audience so that your website speaks directly to your ideal client or customer.

Objective

What exactly do you want a visitor to do when they land on your site? Should they fill out a form, call you, download info, schedule a consult, buy something, or sign up for your course? I'll help you define the objectives of the site.

Strategy

Once the objectives are defined, we'll map out a plan, create a strategy, decide on tactics, and put them to work on your site. The result: a site that attracts your perfect customers and increases profits for your business.

Are We a Good Fit to Work Together?

I'm a pretty laid back guy, and easy to get along with. But, there are a few things that you will need in order for us to be able to work together. These include:

  1. Content. I can't build a website if you don't have any content. If you haven't thought through what you need for content on your site yet, I won't be able to help you out. I can't create your content for you. You are the expert on your business, not me.
  2. Time. Building a kickass website will take a bit of my time, because I want it done right, and so do you. And it will take a bit of your time as well, because you need to be able to create the content (see #1), I'll need you to provide input and approvals along the way, and there will be decisions only you can make.
  3. Budget. You won't need to mortgage your home to pay for your website, but this is an investment into your business and you'll need to budget for it. While every site is different and cost can vary widely based on functionality, size, and features, a basic business site (something like this one for instance) will probably start in the neighborhood of $3000 or so, and go up from there depending on what you need. A site with basic ecommerce capability will probably start at $5000.

If any of these items look like deal breakers to you, not a problem. I understand that I'm not a fit for everyone. I'd rather be clear about it up front so that neither of us wastes time trying to put a square peg in a round hole.

Barefoot's Website Design & Development Process

You'll be in the loop and involved, every step of the way.

1. Discovery

Discovery

The first step is for us to chat so that I can learn about you, your business, your customers, and what you want to accomplish with your website. Tell me as much as you can about yourself and the customers that you serve.

2. Initial Design

Initial Design

Taking what I learned through Discovery, along with input on your likes and tastes, I'll put together the initial design of your site. I'll show you some samples to help steer the process in the right direction, then put it all together into something for you to take a look at.

3. Build Out

Build Out

Once we've agreed on the direction of the design, look, and feel, I'll start to build out the actual site. This is when I'll add in the functionality that your site needs, along with your own content, imagery, graphics, and logos.

4. Tweaks & Revisions

Tweaks & Revisions

Once the development site is built out, we'll test things out. I'll make tweaks and revisions based on your input, and fine tune things to your needs.

5. Go Live!

Go Live!

Once all the revisions are done and everything has been tested out, we'll bring the site live and unleash your rockin' self on the world!

6. Support & Maintenance

Support & Maintenance

After your shiny new website is live and on the internet, I'll still be here for you, making sure things run smoothly, backups are taken, and everything stays up to date.

Barefoot Fun Facts

Before Barefoot

Before Barefoot, I started my career with 13 years in increasingly senior corporate management roles, with full P&L responsibility for budgets of over $25 million and personnel management of up to 30+ staff members. I've owned three businesses, and have sold two of them.

Family

I've been married since 1990, and have a fantastic wife, two awesome daughters, and a mutt named Buddy.

When I'm Not Working...

You can probably find me at the gym, at one of my daughters' sports or cheer events, or hanging with friends.

Favorite Things

I'm a Boston sports guy, a lifelong fan of the New England Patriots, and a more recent fan of the New England Revolution. I love sushi, a good sandwich, and going to the gym. Laying on the beach is great, but I'd prefer a hike in the mountains.

Totally Random

I work at a standing desk. I've never watched "Game of Thrones". Or ET. I created my first website way back before the internet was cool. I believe that complex problems are often best served by simple solutions. And coffee. An unfortunate lawnmower accident in the 90s led to me having half a big toe on my left foot. That's why the logo is a right foot.

Getting a kickass website for your business shouldn't be a painful, bank account draining experience. My goal when working with you is to provide you with a beautiful, functional website quickly, that your visitors love, without breaking your budget.
