About AK Web Design
One reason I started offering web design is because of the amount of scammers and con-artists that exist who will ask for thousands and not even give you a finished working product, ask me, I have several examples. But the most important reason is to support my family and progress my career/portfolio as the best freelance web designer in the area.

A critical factor that separates me from most other designers is my background. I've put many years in sales management at an 80% close ratio. I've owned or operated several small businesses built from the ground up in many different industries. Having said that, a website is only a website unless you market it correctly. With no targeted visitors, my beautiful design and your money is just wasted. Web marketing is not for the faint of heart, and I can navigate you through the treacherous waters and save you lots of time and money on things that don't work. My sales expertise coupled with superior technical knowledge have proven invaluable in creating intuitive highly marketable properly functioning websites.
