Welcome, I’m so glad you are visiting my site. I’m Janis Berman, a freelance provider of web and editorial services. As a freelancer based in Silver Spring, MD; my services are directed primarily to clients with straightforward needs and budgets. A low overhead allows me to offer responsive high-quality websites at affordable rates. Access to marketing and branding experts means I can offer a range of marketing services, including branding and logo development as well as graphic design for print and web.
Over the last 15 years, I have worked full-time primarily developing, designing, writing, editing, and maintaining websites for government and private-sector organizations in the Washington DC metro area. More recently, on a freelance basis, I have helped clients establish websites. I have a BA in English from the University of Maryland and an MA in Psychological Services from Marymount University in Virginia.
A personal share….
Over the years, I have been interested in spiritual and human development. A baby boomer, I participated in the human potential movement, a product of that generation’s youth culture. I emerged from that raucous, revolutionary, and controversial movement with a few lessons learned. Nowadays my intention is help people bridge the gap between technology and opportunity. I know how important it is to communicate clearly and to provide support and encouragement—as well as to avoid using technical jargon.
But Enough About Me…
It’s About You: Where You Are Now and Where You Want to Be
As an individual entrepreneur, or the owner or stakeholder of a small business, you probably need and want to devote the bulk of your time, energy, and talent to growing your business.
I can help. I’m committed to helping talented people—like you—establish a web presence that works. And by a site that works, I mean one that brings you success and clients.
It’s my intention to learn, through listening, what your priorities and goals are and to build a website that meets them. And I’m committed to doing it at an affordable cost. I do this by using my combination of design, editing, and coding skills to build contemporary sites. Sites that get clients to engage and take action!
What’s more–I’ll get you up and running fast. Using an established workflow process, I guide you through a step-by-step process in which, often, the most I’ll ask from you is your opinion.
