Serving small businesses and independent professionals


Rest easy knowing that your website is running smoothly and doing the job it was intended to do: bring customers to your business.

Let a pro maintain your website while you focus on running your business.

Every small business needs a website. That’s a given.

But what happens when the design is done and your website has launched? Who’s responsible for maintenance? How often is your site updated? What’s being done to draw traffic?

Unfortunately, too many small business websites sit around collecting dust and falling into disrepair. To make matters worse, nothing’s being done to attract customers to these businesses.

Professional Website Maintenance:

  • Keeps your website safe and secure and running smoothly.
  • Your business stays relevant with fresh content and a current design.
  • Draws traffic to your website and brings customers to your business.

Meet your website consultant

My name is Melissa Donovan. I manage websites for small businesses and independent professionals who don’t need a full-time website administrator. This allows my clients to keep an expert on call who will handle all their website and online marketing needs without the burden of hiring an employee.
“Melissa has done an excellent job managing my author’s website, keeping it up-to-date and refreshed. [Melissa] is persistent and pleasant and understands my occasional lack of responsiveness.  We’ve had a very long partnership and I appreciate it.  Working with her is great!” Michael K. McMahan, Author

“[Melissa has] become an essential and highly-valued part of my team. Melissa stays current with trends and technology — so I don’t have to. Melissa’s writing and communication skills are superb. Her knack for diplomacy and tact have steered me away from many blunders I might have made without the benefit of her business and marketing background. Melissa’s blogging and social media experience have been invaluable to my business. She helps me put my best face forward on the World Wide Web.”

Judi Jensen, Quiet Karma

“Melissa’s astute skills helped me evaluate, plan, organize and communicate our business offerings in a clear and concise manner. The work Melissa produced met all of my expectations and then some. I am comfortable saying that although I don’t know the requirements of your particular project, I can tell you in terms of working style, I found Melissa to be easy going and flexible, creative, organized and reliable. Most of all, she knew how to ask the right questions. And, yes, I would gladly contract her services again as well as recommend her to others.” Alvin Cordeiro, Entrepreneur

“[Melissa] helped me promote my book, set up schedules for my social media accounts, and designed my author page. She is highly organized and a gifted teacher. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with her.” Lori Gurtman, Author

“I have worked with Melissa on a variety of website design, SEO, and copywriting projects. As a San Francisco Financial District IT and Technology Consulting company, my clients can be demanding -– and they have every right to be! Melissa always sets proper expectations, is thorough in her analysis, and delivers on time. I will continue to include Melissa when client needs warrant to complement my existing portfolio of consulting services.”
