Clients Hire Us because …
We Make You Look Good Online. Looks matter. How you present yourself matters. Your credibility takes a hit and you miss opportunities when your company website looks unprofessional.
We do High-Quality Work. We’re precise, accurate and build things to last. We take great pride in what we do and build every site as if it were our own.
We’re Experienced. After 15 years building websites and doing digital marketing, there’s not much we haven’t seen. If you have the budget, we can build anything you want.
We Meet Deadlines. We get things done on time. We’ve never miss deadlines and won’t keep you waiting.
We’re Affordable. We serve small/medium businesses and service professionals, not huge corporations and our prices reflect that.
We Do Large jobs and Small Jobs. Whether you have a large job or just need some minor work done, we’re happy to help.
We’re a Small Company. I’m directly involved on every project. No bureaucracy or red tape at our office. This keeps costs down and production time low.
High Speed Turn Around Time. If you ever need help, we’re only a phone call or email away. We’ll never keep you waiting.
We Understand Sales & Marketing. It takes more than a pretty website to make sales. You need to know how to write effective ad copy if you want prospects to take action — skills that take years to develop and ongoing practice to master.
We’re Easy. We’re prompt, polite, friendly and pleasant to work with.
Speak plain English. Nothing’s more annoying than dealing with someone speaking techno-babble . You won’t find any rude, arrogant, techie know-it-alls here. We speak your language.
Web Hosting & Maintenance. With us, it’s one stop shopping. We design and develop your site and take care of all the website hosting and maintenance as well.
On-Going Support. After your new site or marketing campaign launches, you won’t be left hanging. As your business grows and evolves, we’re available every step of the way to help you make the necessary adjustments and updates.
I consider myself an honest expert in building long-term, collaborative relationships with clients through measurable, informed design and actionable digital marketing strategies.
Over the years I’ve developed a process that helps us efficiently design websites that captures the attention of your audience and guides them down the conversion funnel. We combine research-driven strategy, inventive design, and clean coding to architect change and build the best experiences for our clients’ audiences.
Turn Prospects Into Profits
Anybody can set up a website, but at Lovett Web Design, we build strategic, engaging experiences that reinforce credibility, communicate key messages, and turn prospects into profits.

What does a freelance Web designer do?
The main responsibility of a freelance web designer is to design and build websites to the client’s specifications. This often involves sketching basic concepts, creating draft websites, and making revisions as requested by the client.
How do freelance Web designers charge?
Reasonably skilled freelance web designers make about $75 per hour. This figure can vary though, according to CSS-Tricks. Website Builder Expert estimates that the cost to design a website is $30 to $80 per hour and the cost to develop it is $100 to $180 per hour. I’m experienced at both the design and development of websites.
How many hours does it take to design a website?
Designing and building a website can take anywhere from one day on a website builder like Wix or Squarespace (these aren’t preferred because they can be bad for Search Engine Optimization) to the sky is the limit for a complicated E-commerce site with numerous levels of categorization.
I had created my website, but was seriously struggling with writing the SEO code required to have the site recognized by search engines. I contacted Mark Lovett and within 24 hours everything was up and running perfectly. He was extremely responsive, professional and well worth the small price I paid. Highly recommend.
Mark did a great job with the SEO work we requested. We saw close to a %1000 increase in page views!
I’ve been working with Mark on a web project for a mutual client since April 2018. A new site had been designed, but had suffered an organic page ranking blow after re-launching. Mark was brought in to get the SEO rolling again. He has been very responsive and a pleasure to work with. The SEO implementations that he has put into place are working very well and our client has been very happy with the results!

“Working with Mark is amazing. He is an expert at what he does, fast and professional. He was able to get my project vision the very first time. Mark turned around my project in the most miraculous of ways. I was struggling to complete the website for my foundation on my own and it seemed as if Mark clicked a few buttons, worked his magic and a masterpiece was created. By having him in our corner we truly feel that our foundation launch will be a huge success and continue to be fruitful. I will continue to work with Mark on other projects. He is very affordable for the excellent quality product he delivers. Anyone who will work with him in the future will be pleasantly surprised at how good this guy is at designing and developing professional looking websites. Thank you Mark!”

Mark is easy to work with, he listens to my ideas and gives his own recommendations. We exchanged e-mails and spoke over the phone, he is patient with questions and answers e-mails quickly. He improved the overall performance and traffic of my website. I’m pleased with the service and would recommend him. We continue to work together, doing maintenance and further improvements.
Mark is creative and a wiz at understanding SEO and the inner workings of creative web design and options. Patient, responsive and instructive, we are thankful for the referral and happy with our results to date. (5 star Yelp Review)
Altman & Associates
“Mark Lovett is wonderful to work with! I am a graphic designer with limited web experience, so when I needed a website for my own firm, I turned to Mark for help. He enthusiastically agreed to work with me—he did all the setup and technical work, but at the same time, we sat together and he taught me how to get in the back end and do some things myself. He was patient and had a great sense of humor as I tried to grasp this foreign language! I would highly recommend Mark for organizations who need him to handle EVERY aspect of their website, as well as for others, like me, who need help, but also want to be able to change things themselves. Thanks to Mark, I now have a website I am extremely proud of. In addition, he made it happen quickly, which to me was imperative. Bravo Mark and many thanks!”

Mark has a great sense of humor and is a delight to work with. As a psychotherapist and author, I wanted my first website to present who I am professionally and personally and still work within my budget. Mark did just that and did it all in three days. Thank you, Mark. I am thrilled with my beautiful website.”
A great experience! Mark was patient, thorough and highly capable – a real pleasure to work with!

Mark is outstanding and I will use again. Thanks Mark for your professional approach and willingness to work with our teams budget.
Wingman/Scott R. Weaver
“There were three things I was looking for in a web designer:
- Empathy-the ability to understand the concept of what I wanted to create.
- Design Capability-I did not want a cookie cutter approach that looks like all the other sites on the web.. I wanted a site that was both professional and with a unique look.
- Technical Capability-the ability to build a functional site that would work well.
Mark produced on all three counts.
He was effective in getting the site developed and was readily available throughout the entire process.
I would recommend him to anyone who requires a new website or an overhaul of their current one.
Thank you Mark!”
Mark did a great job with my site. Very responsive and professional.
“Our website was having major issues, so we searched for a WordPress expert and contacted Mark to look into what was going on. Mark quickly discovered what was wrong and gave us multiple options and costs to correct the issues. Ultimately we opted for a new website. Mark gave us exactly what we wanted, expeditiously and at a fantastic price. We couldn’t be happier and are excited to share our new website with our vendors and clients. Thank you Mark!!”
Mark Lovett has done a fantastic job on my website. He is extremely talented, creative, and I highly recommend him. Can’t do without you, Mark! Nancy Leonard The Accordion Queen of Washington, D.C (Official Trade Name)

Engel Music Studio
I had several major issues with my Website, due to older WP codes. After contacting Mark, he replied requesting a summary of my issues by email. Mark contacted me and we were able to speak about how he could help. We met recently, and he was a huge help in resolving issues. Mark has a very pleasant down to earth personality, and is very easy to work with. I would absolutely recommend Mark for your website needs!.
“Mark did a fabulous job on my website project. After I moved my project from another web developer/designer, Mark completed the site in just three days. He was incredibly efficient, responsive, and accessible. I particularly appreciated his clear communication on a variety of large questions and small details. Mark helped me with sorting out issues with my hosting service, making calls and inquiries on my behalf. I look forward to hiring him for site maintenance and SEO work and have already recommended him to colleagues. Thanks, Mark!”

“Mark was about the fifth person that we interviewed regarding our website. The reason we chose to use Mark, was the he listened to us and demonstrated so by creating exactly what we envisioned. All the others wanted to plop our info into a template that looked the same as every other site, many of which we did not like. So if you need a technically minded individual with a strong creative side (rare combination) we highly recommend using Mark for your website design, creation, hosting and SEO needs.”
“I described my website idea to Mark and three days later is was done. He worked diligently and helped me fine tune its functionality and was always immediately responsive. He WILL be doing another one for me shortly because he earned my business the old fashioned way through honesty integrity and ability.”
Mitch Carr’s Auto Services
“I have worked with many web development service providers over the course of my career and have never encountered a contractor that was as responsive as Mark Lovett. In just a couple of days he was able to get my law firm’s WordPress website (which was left in disastrous shape by a previous developer) up and running and migrated to a new hosting service. I could not be more pleased with the service I received from Mark Lovett.”
H&H Lawworks, LLC
“Mark is accessible, affordable, and ready to help you get your site up and running quickly no matter how small or large the job is. He has strong web development skills and made me feel comfortable right away to talk through some of the issues I was having and proposing solutions.”
GIS & Information Management Specialist
“I hired Mark for a 2 hour consult/training. It was exactly as advertised and went off without a hitch. He was patient with my questions and we accomplished quite a bit that I would never have figured out on my own. I’m sure I’ll be hiring him again to help me further improve my site.”

“Mark has a ton of talent and a wealth of patience. We were in need of not only web work, but some careful instruction. Mark sleuthed out solutions for a handful of conundrums we experienced, and ultimately brought us to the point where we were comfortable and competent with manipulating the inner workings of our site. Yes yes…he taught us to fish : ) You’ll be at ease with Mark Lovett!”

He came to my office and straight away i felt like i chose the right guy. He is very knowledgable and even taught a lot of things that i can ( and should!) do by myself. I am glad to say that Finally i have found my computer guy!!!. I will definitely recommend him to my friends.”
