Project Description

WordPress has become the “Go-To” resource for website designers, and for us who are exclusively using WordPress in Columbia, SC. Over 30% of ALL website out there are using the WordPress CMS platform for their online presence.

In the realm of self-hosted websites, WordPress, as a Content Management System (CMS), accounts for 18.9% of all websites in the world. WordPress themes (themes are website templates built to work inside of the WordPress CMS) offer a plethora of unique designs for you to choose from. There are thousands of WordPress themes readily available to choose from.

Why choose a WordPress theme? Choosing to use a WordPress Theme can save thousands in development costs, especially when you consider how much time is saved when not having to build or develop a new website from scratch in HTML, CSS and PHP code… not to mention having to build an SQL Database. We help you choose a WordPress theme, then all we have to do is customize it by changing the content, like images, text, video, color schemes, etc. Plus, with all of the WordPress plugins (WordPress Plugins are ways to extend and add to the functionality that already exists in WordPress) that are available to easily add extra functionality to WordPress websites, creating online shipping carts, online payment gateways, forums, email marketing systems, security, membership websites, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and so much more.

You can see why we have decided to stop coding so much from scratch and use one of the best business tools available for getting websites up, active and online much faster. Thus enabling us to be so much more cost-effective and efficient.

Below are images of two client’s working websites. They are clickable so you can view display videos of them for your review. Each is made in WordPress. Take note of the difference between each site and how they are used to do very different things. This is just a tiny example of the possibilities made available with WordPress, WordPress Themes and WordPress Plugins… and the cost to each client was fractional. Take a look:

Arlee, through his Company Blurbidea, designed a website for our small law firm and we are more than happy. He not only has great technical skill but also has serious marketing knowledge and he has assisted us greatly in both areas. I would recommend him highly.

Arlee has done an excellent job of taking my vision and creating a reality that has exceeded my expectations. His talent goes far beyond the norm. When you are able to have a professional that understands the real estate business and knows what it takes to be successful, the outcome is pure brilliance. Thank you for being a mentor and challenging me to be better than I ever thought I had the ability to be!

Arlee approached me in June of 2008 regarding the sale of family owned beach property in North Carolina. He had a sales concept that I had never heard of….. video sales presentation! I hired him to produce the video of my families property and was ecstatic with the finished product. The sales agent I had a listing agreement with didn’t pan out and I signed on with Russ. He guided me through the detailed paperwork, explaining in common sense language exactly what I needed to know about our agreement. With his expertise and commitment to solid business practices, we collaborated on a Eastern US marketing campaign of my family property. It was a fabulous experience from to start to finish. I wouldn’t hesitate a second to hire him again to consult with me. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a Real Estate Consultant/Video Producer. His work is excellent!

When Ambient Media first launched onto the scene we called on Arlee to design our website. His knowledge and experience allowed us to move quick and meet our deadline. We were thrilled to find someone who wanted to understand our business and presented the best ideas. The final product far exceeded our expectations. If you need a creative web designer that you can trust from concept to final product look no more… Arlee is your man.

As I am learning Adobe Illustrator/Photoshop he has been an amazing and patient teacher.  I can tell you I am not the best student. He is knowledgeable and highly skilled at website designing, all Adobe products.

Arlee is an excellent website designer and marketer.

We used Arlee for all kinds of tech help at my last job for the last two years and he was amazingly helpful. He would create YouTube videos to help our staff & clients understand how to use new applications. He was always there for us!

Arlee is and always has been an outstanding resource for our business.  Intelligent, savvy and very creative. He can handle a vast array of assignments and he is available 24/7 long before 24/7 was vogue.
