I’m Collin Stover, and I’m a Web Designer in Pittsburgh that helps passionate business owners create Websites that position themselves as trusted authorities, using tools that allow me to teach my you how to edit the content as easily as you would edit a word document — Guaranteed
I’ll admit…when I started my first business, I really didn’t care about Internet marketing. I just wanted a Website that looked good and got me customers.
I Just Wanted to Share My Passion With the World…I Didn’t Really Want to Become a “Marketer”
The problem was…I was 14 years old when I started that business, so I couldn’t afford to hire someone to design my Website and do my marketing.
When I set out to do it by myself, I realized just how complicated the DIY tools where out there. Even the ones that were simple were extremely lacking in customizability and functionality.
Luckily, being only 14, I had time on my side to dedicate to learning this stuff.
So I spent years teaching myself and perfecting my Web design and internet marketing skills, and was able to achieve some pretty impressive results:
I was able to increase my prices 500% in the first year of business.
I was featured on the cover of the Pittsburgh City Paper, inside of Pittsburgh Magazine, and on numerous daytime TV programs.
Most importantly, I was doing what I loved and making a living doing it.
I had the freedom to choose my own path, which allowed me to work on my own terms.
I wasn’t born a Web Designer.
I didn’t go to school to become a Web designer. My knowledge and skills were forged in the fire of building my own successful businesses.
Why do I tell you this? Because I pride myself on being more than just a “Web guy.”
I know what it’s like to be new in business, or even in a business that has been around for a while that you just want to take to that “next level.”
I also know what it’s like to know absolutely nothing about Web design or marketing, and how frustrating it can be to realize that just being good at what you do doesn’t make you any money unless people can find you (especially on the Web).
So fast forward a few years after I had all of this success with my businesses, I started to have others in Pittsburgh asking me to do their Web design and Internet Marketing for them.
I did a few jobs here and there, which attracted even more business, and it got to the point that I was doing more work on this “side job” than I was the actual business I was taking seriously and seeing success with.
“I really needed a website done quickly for my upcoming book release. Originally, I was going to work with my current developer who operates my fitness training studio page, but her quote was just too much for me to bare. I was referred to Collin from my publisher who aid he had reasonable rates and a quick turnaround. All of that was true, but the quality of the website is what truly shocked me.Click Here to Get Started
This website looks so professional, edgy, and just all around so incredible I literally was screaming with excitement when Collin showed me the proof! If you want a great website that showcases who you are and your expertise for the best rates , and have it all completed at lighting speed, Collin is your man!”Janelle Pica, Fitness Expert
I Decided…If I was going to offer this service to people…I was going to use the same system that I had used for my own businesses to find so much success.
After all, our good name is all that we have. I wanted these sites to actually work for people.
Let’s face it…if you’re on this page and you’re passionate about what you do, you probably view marketing as a “necessary evil” and not something you want to focus on. No one wants to be that “sales person.”
You’re also probably really awesome at what you do, and you have some clients under your belt, but you are looking to get to that “next step” that a client-converting Website could achieve for you.
But I also know the pitfalls of hiring a Web designer and Internet marketing strategist…
Firstly, I should have you know that I have been burned by “Web Guys” in the past along my path to becoming an expert on this kinda stuff. I’ve been sold to, lied to, put into contracts where I was making obscene payments for little to no progress, and I’ve been left with sites that do absolutely nothing for my business.
I know how frustrating that is, which is why I put my name on the line and guarantee that you will be satisfied with the work that I do, or your money back (See my Adamantine-Clad Guarantee at the bottom of this page).
I also know how frustrating it is that most Web design firms not only charge you an obscene amount for the design fees, but also charge you an arm and a leg each month for maintenance plans.
INTRODUCING: The Best Step-by-Step Systematic Process for Designing Visitor-Converting Websites FAST.
I Create the Site…You Watch the Clients Roll In…
Not only do I create the site, but I coach you through the marketing strategy behind it, and I use tools that make it so they can learn how to edit the site yourself so that you never have to pay me to make a change on your Website again.
Here’s what I promise:
I break my process down into 5 meticulous steps: strategy, content-creation, design, review, and launch. This is important because it allows us to break our work down into manageable chunks that allows us to get laser-focused on what you need and how we are going to achieve that.
I don’t just design a pretty site (although it will look breathtaking), I create an entire Internet Marketing Strategy for you so that you can have a site that not only looks good, but actually finds and converts new customers.
I build the site using WordPress, which allows me to teach you how to easily make edits on the site once I have designed it, even if your only tech-knowledge is how to use a Word Processor.
All of my sites are mobile-friendly up to Google’s rigorous standards, and are optimized for search engines (SEO) so that we can get you closer to those top results on Google.
“We worked with Collin to develop a website for our multi-location practice. Our goal was to create a website that was clean and mobile friendly, as well as something that walked the fine line between looking sophisticated enough for our younger patients and being easy to use for our older ones. Collin did all of this and more. His service was out of this world, and everything was done at an affordable price.Click Here to Get Started
In just the 4 months since the site went live, we’ve had 3,025 visits from 2,184 users, totaling 10,003 page views. An impressive 79.5% of our website traffic has come from Google, which shows that this site WORKS. We’ve had 45 inquiries from both new and existing patients on our site, which resulted in 24 new patient appointments for our practice.
It’s simple…the website Collin designed has paid for itself in just a few short months, and we couldn’t be happier. What’s even better is that Collin has taught our in-house staff how to run the site themselves so we can be self-sufficient, and yet he is always available to follow-through with support when we get stuck or need something else implemented. Thanks Collin!”Dr. Aaron Smuckler, Renaissance Family Practice
Here’s What You Get:
Strategy-Coaching: We will have several coaching calls to determine exactly what your goals are for your business and how we can create a Website that will most effectively help you to achieve those goals — I am the only Web Designer in Pittsburgh who makes marketing coaching an integral part of his process.
Content-Creation Roadmap: We will create a road-map for your site based on your strategy so that we know what content will be needed before we even start the design process. This allows the design to be created specifically for the content, instead of the other way around.
The site will be designed in WordPress using tools and software that will make it easy for you to understand and make basic edits on the site once it is is designed so that you don’t have to be chained to me as a designer.
All of our sites are mobile-friendly and responsive so that your Website will be functional and beautiful no matter what device your visitor is viewing it on.
Content will be added to the site with Search Engine Best Practices (SEO) in mind so that you will begin to rank in Google and other search engines and start reaching customers who would have otherwise never heard of you.
You will receive several free rounds of revisions so that we can create a site together that is even better than the one you imagined in your head.
Additional features like membership sites and shopping carts can be added so that you can start to make money from your site right away.
Sites are built with call to actions in mind so that visitors don’t just pop in and leave — they take action to make a purchase or give you their information for follow-up.
I help many of my clients create back-end sales systems that allow them to automatically follow up with visitors who come to their site in order to build a relationship that leads to a sale, without any work on the part of my clients.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much is this going to cost me? Can I afford it?
A: I do not believe in one-size-fits-all pricing, because no two clients are alike. Let’s get on the phone for a free 30-minute “pick my brain” session where you can ask me whatever questions you want, and we will determine exactly what you need, and what you don’t. This will give us a better idea of what kind of investment you will be making, as well as give you a solid plan for moving forward whether you decide to work with me or not. Payment plans are also available in order to make this as affordable as possible for you.
Q: I already have a Website…is there anything you can do to help me?
A: Many of the clients who come to me already had a Website that was either underperforming or doing “just okay.” I find that most Websites out there are pretty to look at, but don’t have any real marketing and sales principles behind them. This leads to Websites that are nothing more than wasted real estate. I take these sites and make them more effective, whether that means just creating more “focus” on the site in order to position my clients as experts and make them more sales, or it means me completely redesigning the Website. The best way to find out how we can make your site more effective is to schedule a time to get on the phone for a free 30-minute “pick my brain” session to determine your needs and how I may be able to help you.
Q: I don’t really want to “deal with” creating a Website. I just want to do what I do best and help my clients. Why do I need one?
A: A Website allows you to reach (and help) more potential customers than you could ever meet on your own in a lifetime. If you are truly passionate about and believe in what you do, then it makes sense to want to share that passion with as many people as you can. A Website allows you to do that. Aside from that, using my systematic step-by-step approach to designing Websites makes it so that the entire process is painless, and maybe even fun, for you. I want you to focus on what you do best while I focus on what I do best — creating visitor-converting Websites.
“We hired Collin to redesign our Website, both to give it a breath of “fresh air,” and to re-strategize, as we weren’t getting as many patients filling out appointment forms as we would have liked.
When we first sat Collin down in our office to talk to him, we had a list of questions for him about our Website. Collin took the time to answer each one thoroughly, and in a language we could understand as non-tech people. This level of accessibility has continued, and it is something that sticks out about Collin.
Not only did he give us the breath of fresh air we were looking for (even the colors on our site look brighter!), but in just one month we have over 20-timesed our investment with him. New and returning patients alike are finding us on the Web and filling out our booking forms, and that makes the project a success in my book. Thanks Collin!”
