Today, I’m introducing you to Dave Yankowiak, a gifted web developer whose skills are only outmatched by the size of his heart. I’ve known Dave for many years and am honored to call him friend and benefit from his services.
If you are starting a business, at the front end of your idea and need to get a platform underneath it, or desire to rework your website so that it helps deliver your message and wares, I highly encourage you to contact Dave and put a gameplan together.
In his own words…
What I do: I am a front-end WordPress developer and have been operating Lift Development full-time for over five years. There are basically two types of projects that I work on: 1) Full design and development, and 2) development projects where the client already has a design that they need built on WordPress. I specialize in developing on top of the Genesis theme framework by StudioPress (affiliate link).
Why WordPress: It allows my clients to easily edit the content on their websites on their own. They can keep their site updated with fresh content and also save the cost of having to pay a professional to make the updates.
My clients: I work with a lot of smaller businesses and organizations around the country. I also have a few marketing/strategic firms that I partner up with to develop websites for their end clients. I don’t really do any advertising and most of my projects come through referrals.
My goals with every project:
- I want you to end up with a website that you’re proud of. You’re spending quite a bit of money – you deserve to be happy with the end-product.
- I want you to get over any fears of running a successful website. I’ll give you pointers and advice along the way. I’ll teach you how to use WordPress and give you resources for finding answers to future questions.
- I want you to have an enjoyable experience working with Lift Development. We’re in this project together, and I want us both to have fun and count it as a positive, productive experience.
- I want you to succeed. Bottom line: your website should be more than just a “presence.” It should be a legitimate part of your organization’s success whether driving new sales or acting as a point of customer service.
About Me: I live in Grand Rapids, MN with my wife and three daughters. Up here in lake country, the question is not “Should I go fishing today?” it’s “Which one of the 1000+ lakes in the area should I go fishing on today?” As a family we love camping, canoeing, and just about anything else outdoors.
