I TRULY CARE ABOUT MY CLIENTS.
I have spent my whole life in customer service. That’s not an accident. I actually love people and treat each of my clients as I would if they were my employer.
My personal story is a little boring… although I happen to prefer boring over drama. My husband and I are happily married and have four amazing kids, four adorable dogs and a loving cat. I have my Bachelor’s in Psychology but realized I didn’t have thick enough skin to be a therapist. So I started working in HR and slowly learned more about computers and business. The company I worked for was mainly a dial up company (oh long ago!) so in order to keep business coming in, I decided to teach myself how to design websites. I wasn’t very good at the beginning and used to give away work for free. Then I started charging a little more and over time I became better at understanding the technical side. And now, almost 20 years later, feeling pretty good about what I love to do.
My grandparents, Rose and Bill had a home on Ferry Street while I was growing up. Starting with nothing, they worked hard, but gave so much to others. I cherish the time I had with them and named my business in their memory, Ferry Street Consulting.
My greatest skill comes through lots of experience. Over the years I’ve built over 200 websites and have gained an understanding of business as a whole, which helps tremendously when designing a website to represent your brand, organize content to attract new users and reach for new goals.
01. WEB DESIGN.
Helping you create a new concept or tweak something you’ve started is my specialty! Colors, imagery, tag lines, content, framework, fresh ideas….everything you need to get started. I spend time really getting to know your business and finding the right strategy together for the most impact. I want your site to give you a true return on your investment and help you take your business to the next level.
Optimizing your website for key words, metatags, titles and content comes with every website I complete. If you need more heavy lifting on search engine marketing, I can refer you to experts who handle Google AdWords campaigns, Facebook ads, etc. All depends on your industry, competition and what your goals are before you invest in your site.
It can be very pricey to have a full time website person on staff. I am happy to negotiate a monthly flat rate for maintenance of your website for updates as well as additions and changes. I have heard terrible stories of companies losing their web person and not being able to find anyone to keep it up. I can promise you I will always be around and available to take care of your web needs.
I HAVE WORN MANY HATS.
As all moms do, I have worn many hats. Just like multitasking at home, same goes for work. I have done everything from cleaning toilets to bookkeeping, accounting, collaborating, managing, coordinating, organizing and my favorite, website design.
MY CLIENTS COME FIRST.
There is nothing more important to me than doing a good job. I set a high standard and always do my best to meet that goal.
Throughout my years, I have been lucky to have a good following. I have never advertised myself, so this website is a first! Like all other people, most of us put ourselves last. So here I am putting it all out there. Here is some of what my clients from all over have said:
“As the President of a successful digital marketing agency, I have entrusted many web development projects in Lori’s hands. Each and every one of these projects have turned into revenue generating machines for our clients.
Simply put, Lori Samuelson is the best web designer that I have come across and I don’t say that lightly.
If cost is your primary objection toward building a great website for your business, trust me, it will pay for itself very quickly.
I highly recommend Lori!”
~Kevin Kohlert, President & Founder BOREALIS DIGITAL MARKETING
“Lori is a God-send. She is very professional, courteous and very conscientious about her work and advising me, the client, on ways to get the job done and not spend a lot of money. We have worked so well together that I have referred her to several different ministries who desired to create websites and they are super satisfied with her work, professionalism and politeness.”
~ Anita P. Latin, ALB MINISTRY
“My business partner and I contacted Lori in regard to designing a website for our new surgical hair restoration practice. Lori made the entire process stress-free – she was pleasant, quick to communicate, and always available to exchange ideas.”
~Dr. Lawrence Feigenbaum, ST LOUIS HAIR
