Web Design for Very Small Businesses | The BabyDave Organization
The BabyDave Organization offers web design services to very small businesses, creative individuals, craftspeople, contractors and collectors. BDO is a very small business itself, operating as a sole proprietorship, calling upon a tight network of skilled partners when special expertise is required and learning new skills as we grow. We understand the limitations imposed by the 24 hour day. BDO can help when your time or personal knowledge reaches its limit.
The Internet allows even the smallest business to compete, to a degree, on a world wide basis. What distinguishes an individual craftsperson from the sometimes hugely bigger competitor is the personal touch. The personal relationship, community connection, neighborhood feeling can be communicated through your web presence. BDO believes that very small business is well served by balancing clean contemporary web design with warm graphics and personalized text. Use your web pages to communicate your personality and values, the quality and reliability of your skills and service and make your presence on the Web an authentic and effective tool for marketing your very small business.
