If you don't have time to make your own website, but you don't think you can afford a mind-blowing site... you found the right guy. I'm that sweet spot designer that can make you something that stands out better than most and for a reasonable price. I'm usually quite fast too.
Websites build trust.
That very first impression is crucial to getting sales and showing authenticity. In the subconscious of everyone we all think, "Can I trust these people?" the moment we visit a website. So I like to start with something new that grabs their attention and is familiar enough that you don't miss the point. I love to make websites that do new things for that reason, to help you tell your story online in a new way that makes friends with people right off the bat.
"Can I edit my site?"
You have access to manage the content of your website on your own with the easiest editor available, but if you need a new page or a section added, you'll likely want to holler at me. I'll whip it together pretty quick.
THE ULTIMATE PACKAGE!
If you're interested in
I can do some really swell photography, videos and graphic design, however I don't usually take on projects of that nature, because I'm very busy with websites. (YHWH Jireh!)
I do use those skills when needed for websites, so It's not completely off the table.
I have friends - REALLY GOOD FRIENDS - who can help and very reasonable people, so I usually leave that up to them. Here's some that I recommend:
Heighten Creative, WeBreedlove Productions, Campbell Creative Co
And of course if you want a website along with complete branding/strategy/SEO/grow your business help, see above for "The Ultimate Package" where we work with Campbell Creative Co to further your brand like no one else can.
When I learn some thing amazing or helpful or that saves money, everything inside me wants to share it with people!
I put these into two categories: Webflow & Business Life Tips
I use webflow to build sites and it is hands down the most incredible tool. sometimes you get stuck and I've gotten stuck many-a-time, so I'm happy to help people learn it in ways that are easier than I did. When i started learning Webflow, nobody else around here knew what it was, so I was on their forums and always watching videos. Now you have someone down the road to call on for questions...me!
Business Life Tips
So many of us use the same standard tool when starting a little business and honestly those usually suck. I'm always searching for the companies that got fed up with bigger companies and made a product thats better and more affordable. (For example I ditched Adobe Illustrator for Affinity Designer and I'm never going back. $40/mo vs. $40 one time fee.) Or maybe you want a bank that can do digital "cash" envelopes. I'm search for years and landed on Qube.
When I find a tool that can really help you keep your life/businesses more organized or save you money I love to tell people. You can keep up with my blog or just ask me for something specific.

Downtown Bentonville Inc
Owner, Founder, Does Everything
The purpose of Minim is to offer outstanding creative services for the small businesses that need it to cost less so they can pay the insane rent etc.... I use the profits to make my content better, more affordable and to take care of my super supportive wife and kiddos.
The Good Lord is our rock, our peace and our purpose. Everything I make and person I help is a little thank you to Him for the breathes it took to do it and the joy He puts in it.
I'm from Rogers, AR, live in Bentonville. It's a good life.
All over the place. I've been building websites for about 10 years. I used to suck at it, but now I'm doing things most companies can't around here.
I learned the basics of code from the boys on the tech team at Walton Family Foundation, beginning when they were their own company called Silvermoon Consulting. Austin, Mark, Jonny & Jesse are a dream team. Working with them taught me that you really have to find the tools that allow you to work like there's 5 of you to be good at what you do.
If it wasn't for them seeing my creative need and pushing me to go work at Downtown Bentonville Inc, I may not have ever learned design. I was the designer / developer / videographer / photographer at DBI for 6 years. I was the one man design, print and web development team. It was really fun and gave me a space to create anything based on the need I see. Plus I got to see it all out in public and that was pretty rewarding. I continue to manage their website and help them with anything they need. Cause we still friends. :)
I was not a designer, but I was hired to build Downtown Bentonville Inc. a site on Wix. I learned design on the job and now I couldn't be happier creating websites and designing promo materials. Sometimes you don't need a degree or even much experience. Just show that you have what it takes to learn, humbly. Then fight every dang day to stay humble and keep learning.
Do I have a degree? Yeah I went to some over-hyped school around here to get one for what it's worth, but it's not related to design at all.
Minim started with my buddy Chad George (a local genius) and I. We worked together at Downtown Bentonville Inc everyday for 3 years. Lately he's found a great job that he loves and fills his creative juices, running all the media and design at New Heights Bentonville. So now it's just me. Do not hesitate to check out what he's doing lately. Like I said, he's a genius. Seriously check it out....did you do it?
Yes we are still friends and I definitely miss seeing him everyday.
