Kia Ora, and welcome to Web Matters

I'm Michelle Sullivan, a Christchurch website designer with many years of experience designing and building websites and running web design companies. I primarily work with WordPress, along with doing Shopify e-commerce sites.

Much of my work is maintaining the many websites I've built since I've been in business. I also take on new clients for brand-new builds and will consider maintaining sites I've not built.

What I can do for you..

Many clients refer to me as their 'web lady' and look to me for advice on many website-related things. I can build you a WordPress website or a Shopify store and care for it as long as needed. I can do a website audit of your existing WordPress website and fix any problems I discover. I can teach you how to use your WordPress website. Write the content for your website and help set you up with e-mail marketing. I also do basic SEO work to help you rank better in the search engines.

I am also looking to add SquareSpace site builds to my services, so if you are interested in using SquareSpace, please also get in touch.

How and why I do web design work

My clients are my top priority, so I invested a lot of time refining my web design processes and skills. I'll always work in your best interests so we can grow your business while making it easy for you. I'll also be very transparent about what I think you need and what it will cost.

I do this work because it's fun and gratifying when I can help someone grow their business or find ways to make things more efficient. And in some cases, I know I've helped a business survive tough times.

What makes me different?

My long and varied experience in the web industry sets me apart—my attention to detail, commitment to learning, and willingness to go the extra mile. My web clients know they can pick up the phone or email me, and they will reach me. I'll understand what they need and respond quickly and efficiently.

If you've ever struggled to get help or been misled by the support you did get, you'll find it refreshing to work with someone who is not only accessible but knows your business and cares.
