Maria Boyle

Digital Creator, Designer, and WordPress Expert.

Hey, it's nice to meet you!

My name is Maria, and I love creating. Based out of the Greater Portland area, I work with people all around the world on their marketing and website projects. I love learning about my clients, what makes them tick, and what makes their businesses tick. 

The thing I value most about working independently is the relationships I’m able to form with my clients. I know their hardships, their life goals, and what matters to them as people. Because of this, I’m able to create strategies that will truly benefit them and their businesses. 

I'm driven by watching you succeed.

Now, about what I can offer.

Your Site is Yours

It's annoying to have to hire a designer or developer to change a photo on your website, isn't it? Honestly, it's criminal. I make sure you are 100% confident editing your site on your own before you take the reins.

I customize

I don't use premade templates or 3rd party themes, ever. They're riddled with bugs, sometimes malware, and 2,000 other businesses' websites will look exactly like yours. I build everything from scratch with your vision, so your site is truly unique. That way, we can do whatever we want!

Security

Hackers are everywhere these days. Can't they get a real job? I'll deck you out with SSL, firewalls, and health monitors. Strange login attempts from Latvia? Not today. You'll always get alerted if something fishy is going on.

Monthly Maintenance

Have edits that will need to be made each month and don't want the hassle? Want someone to ensure your site is always healthy, backups are done, and software updates are made? I offer monthly packages, customized to your needs.

Training

Your web builder or agency probably told you you can't edit your own site, or maybe you're just unsure of how to do it. I'd love to set up a Zoom with you to show you how to do things on your own, even if I didn't build the site! That way, you don't need to pay someone to make changes, and you can feel confident and self-sufficient moving forward.

I'm your Partner

I value you, and I haven't even met you yet. I advise proactively and do everything I can to improve your business' message because I want you to succeed. I'm with you every step of the way.

My Approach

Devotion to individual, personalized service

A lot of companies claim they’re transparent, but have you ever been in the situation where everything is falling apart, and no one will answer your calls? Yeah, it’s awful. Agencies are dishonest because they’re scared to lose you as a client. Of course, I don’t want to lose you, but I’m always honest about any snags I hit and what I’m doing to work through them. Additionally, you won’t need to deal with the stress of trying to get a hold of your designer, through your project manager, through your account representative. I do everything on my own, with the occasional outsourcing to trusted, hard workers. And you’ll always be made aware of when that happens.

While I do have monthly maintenance clients, I don’t take on more than 3 or 4 new site builds at a time, and this is because I am committed to giving you exceptional attention and service. I don’t believe in overbooking because this delays current projects and means a drop in quality and service. This may mean you have to wait a bit for our contract to start, but once it does, I’m all yours!

I have a lot of passion for designing, which means your site will get finished up in a fraction of the time it would take a larger agency to create your site. You won’t need to wait a month to receive your first draft – depending on the size of your site, I’m talking a few days to a week or two. This doesn’t mean your quality will suffer, however. I’ve got my planning and implementation process down to a T, so you’ll receive the highest quality of craftsmanship.

Occasionally, I’ll outsource to individuals if you need additional services, such as content creation or heavy-duty animation. My team is made up of well-vetted and professional freelancers who are truly exceptional. From designers to content strategists, my team is always thrilled to go above and beyond. Located everywhere in the United States, my team is dedicated to meeting all deadlines, no matter what timezone you’re in.
