Website design / development / hosting

Leemark Communications has 25 years of experience in solving its customers’ website problems and needs.

New websites

Owner Chris Lee will help you identify your goals and build a site within your budget. I can help you find and register your own domain name (, help you find affordable hosting, and register your website with search engines.

Leemark’s strength is creating sites with crisp copy, strong editing, intuitive layout and compelling photos, logos and maps, plus audio and/or video if desired. See my portfolio page for examples.

Existing websites

Leemark can take over administration and maintenance of existing websites if your site was built by someone else and you have parted ways.

Support for many technologies / formats

Leemark can create and maintain websites using numerous technologies:

  • WordPress-based
  • Joomla-based
  • hand-coded websites.

Chris also knows …

  • the difference between JPEGs and GIFs, and when to use each,
  • how to compress images yet retain quality, and
  • how to add alt tags for accessibility and search engine optimization (SEO).

— In other words, the many little things that make for a well-built website!

How can your prices be so much lower?
Leemark doesn’t have the overhead other firms do. We’re a small business without a storefront or big office building. That lets us give you a better price.

Can’t I just build a site myself using off-the-shelf software from the local superstore?
Sure you can. But, there’s a learning curve to any software. What’s more, some website design programs use templates that limit your site’s individuality and customization. It also takes time to design something that will be appealing and intuitive. Leemark can create a website for you and then, if you want, show you how to update the information on the site yourself.

I also know which graphic formats to use for which types of images, how to compress images enough to load quickly yet look good, and other tricks of the trade. Plus, I test each site on multiple browsers to ensure broad compatibility for visitors to your site.

I’ve heard of some Web firms offering free sites to small businesses. Why can’t I just use one of those?
You can. But the old saying “there’s no such thing as a free lunch” applies to websites, too. Web firms that build and host your site for free usually give you a simple-template site and require you to include outside advertising on it.

Leemark offers a unique combination of personalized attention, great design and prices that don’t break your bank account. For more information, please contact me.
