Premium Results for Your Next Website, App, and Marketing Effort.
Do you need the expertise and speed that a large Creative Agency can offer, but don't want to be treated like a cash cow to be milked in a long line of other clients?
Do you ever find yourself saying:
I don’t have anything against large creative agencies. I actually worked for one for many years! The reason I left was because I wanted to work one-on-one with my clients. I was tired of being so far removed that by the time a strategy was implemented it was filtered and watered down to nearly no value to the client. It became more about keeping the big fish paying monthly than delivering real value to them. I hated that so much…
I understand how difficult it is to find a trusted professional who is skilled enough to deliver results for your website, app, and marketing effort. It’s intimidating to trust another human with a redesign of a website, or a new web app. I totally get that! That’s why nearly all of my clients come through personal referrals of past projects I’ve completed. A happy client shares with their peers the successful project, and that makes it a littler easier to connect on a potential project.
It’s a different world now than it was 15 years ago when I started SolidGiant. I understand you have many choices to create your website, app and marketing. If you are looking for a trusted professional let me share just three things that I believe set me apart (but no pressure, feel free to read my testimonials and reach out to them directly if you know them).
1. I’m a constant learner, and my expertise rivals that of a large creative agency. Because I’m passionate and love what I do, I am constantly growing and offering new skills to my clients. I deliver measurable results to my clients.
2. I focus on you personally and your business goals. I see each project as two parts. The first is making the project successful in reaching it’s goals, the second is helping you be successful personally inside your organization. This honestly is way different than any other agency. They focus on the former, and the latter they literally don’t have eyes to see. I understand that when I help you be professionally successful inside your organization with an awesome project, you have more opportunities for a promotion, raise, accolades. Which I love seeing!
3. The projects I work on are actually enjoyable along the way. We’ll have fun on the project together. I’ll keep it light hearted and on track. This is my secret sauce after 15 years. The people I have worked with love working together on our projects. Let’s meet some goals and have a blast while we do it!

I craft custom solutions focused on meeting your (actual) goals.
It’s not just about making a beautiful website anymore, it’s about reaching a wider audience, creating a premium brand, effectively communicating a vision. It’s so much more than a “website”. It’s hard to quantify until you’ve launched a successful project and know what it takes. I’ve worked alongside my clients for 15 years full time, helping them be successful in their organization and online. We have fun while we do it too!
I’ve built world class web apps for large nonprofits and businesses. Completely from scratch and custom, each app I build solves a specific problem. If there’s no off the shelf solution, then I’ll consult with you on the most effective way to build an app that solves your problem. It’s dangerous to pay an offshore agency to build a successful app, but I pledge to always lead you to the best answers and deliver a solution that will scale with you and your business.
As an official Shopify Expert, I can take your ecommerce business to the next level. With a strategy focused on conversions, I’ll redesign your store to double your conversion rate. Over the years and working with hundreds of ecommerce brands, I’ve been able to consistently double conversion rates. Which will double gross sales.
This term is so overused now days… I only use it now to share that I have 15 years of measurable success with campaigns and strategies that get a positive return on investment. When you engage with me on marketing, I’ll prove where every dollar goes, and if I don’t think I can get a positive ROI for you, I’ll explain why and help you decide the best path forward. I believe that if you’re armed with the truth you can make better decisions for yourself and your company.
I’ve never had an upset client!
