Las Vegas Website Design

WEB DEVELOPMENT

Whether you are looking for a new website, app or need edits to an existing website or application, I am able to help most people with their projects. If what you need is outside my realm of expertise I should be able to point you in the direction of professionals who can help you.

Below is a timeline of my experience and education since I began coding at the age of 12. If you would like to discuss your project you can call or text me on my cell at (702) 908-2449. If you prefer email you can reach me directly at me@josephstevenson.com.

1995

My father and brother got me into coding at the age of 12. I started with GW Basic on our old Doss IBM. I started with simple calculator programs and then moved on to building fantasy games.

1999 - 2004

From my teen years to my
early twenties I worked in multiple areas from coding projects to customizing MySpace pages for friends and girls I wanted to impress. I was usually not paid for my work but it was a huge educational time for me.

During this time I built and sold a window cleaning company that served Kingman AZ, Bullhead City, Laughlin NV and the Las Vegas area. This experience helped me later as I built my web development company.

2004 - 2005

2004 is when I built my first database driven website in PHP and MySQL. I built a job search engine that crawled the web for new jobs and then listed them much like indeed.com. At the time job boards were free to post jobs on through XML feeds so each day my crawler would index around 500K jobs and automaticaly get dispersed to job boards. At the time I was getting around 50k hits per day to my website which generated around $500 per day in advertising revenue, plus more in job posting fees from companies who wanted to sponsor their jobs.

After a few months the job boards I was posting to started charging for postings making it a zero sum game so I was forced to shut the site down. This project consumed most of my year but taught me a lot about making money online and going where the traffic and customers are.

2005 - 2017

After building the job site
it got me some attention and I started getting requests to build websites and help them rank higher in Google and other high traffic sources. Since 2005 I have built hundreds of websites, managed millions in SEO budgets, learned four new languages, spoken at multiple conventions as an expert, written two books and consulted with many firms helping their revenue increase by sometimes as much as 150%. I am constantly looking to improve my services, but through them all the web development is my first love and what I feel is where I can really help people.

Present

Currently I am focusing on writing my third book, continuing custom development projects for clients and providing consulting to companies throughout the world including Raptor Digital Marketing, my SEO firm run by Greg Hamblin here in Las Vegas.

I will be focusing on building my consulting services over the next few years while growing reach in multiple markets outside of the Las Vegas Website Design area. I love what I do and don't plan to change it much.

PROJECTS

A few of my projects over the years of my career can be found below. I have signed hundreds of non-disclosure agreements with many of my clients so if the information is not listed here I may not be able to divulge more. This list is not comprehensive and will not include all of my projects. Additionally, this list may include sites that have since been updated by myself or outside firms.

Hirschi Masonry is a Las Vegas masonry company that has been involved in many of the major construction builds over the past few decades. When we were contacted it was to give consulting on the current website and help grow the internet presence of the company. We decided after talks to build a new design over the existing website which included a responsive framework and CMS powered by Wordpress. The final website tied the history of the company into a more modern design which is what they were looking for.

After the new website was approved and launched we began focusing on making the company an industry leader online. After formulating a plan and deciding what keywords were important for search results we were able to succesfully target and rank for all major keywords related to masonry work in the Las Vegas area.

The Hilton Garden Inn project was brought to us by a PR firm who was working with the company to launch a new property in the Eastern United States. We were charged with taking designs and creating a website that would generate announcements for the property's grand opening and also gather user data for remarketing campaigns later on. This project came to us on a short deadline and after four long days of work we were able to complete and launch the site with fully functioning applications requested by the client.

The Cannery Resorts operate three different casinos in Las Vegas and in the Eastern United States. After their new website was complete by another firm we were contacted to work with their three different marketing departments under the direction of the Director of Marketing to help grow online presence through SEO and PPC.

The main areas we decided to focus on was SEO and Facebook advertising. What made this project interesting and challenging was the nature of the business and the restrictions online for advertising the gaming industry. After months of planning we executed campaigns focusing on the property's specialties like night clubs, restaurants and movie theaters. Our first social media campaign generated 500k in traffic and over 30k in revenue for the business.

Meisinger is a dental equipment company that specializes in drill bits and diamond heads for dentists. They have hundreds of salespeople who meet daily with dentists to review their products and see what fits best for the practice. Our job was to create an app that the salespeople could download on their phone and display product to the dentist. The main challenge we ran into was that there were hundreds of thousands of variations of the products making a search through the app a slow process. We were able to implement a caching system that would pre-load results based on categories and show results in an almost real-time format. This allowed the salepeople to display multiple products in a quick real time environment for their clients and generate more sales.

Hooters is a national chain with locations in most states. The project we were contracted to work on was the opening of the hotel here in Las Vegas. Much like the Hilton project, we were contracted by a local PR firm to create landing pages and information gathering applications. We were able to take creatives from their marketing department and build out a fully responsive landing page funnel that invited and captured leads from their current customers who were driven to the page from outside marketing efforts.

LAS VEGAS WEBSITE DESIGN/DEVELOPMENT

In order for search engines to know how to list my website I need to focus on a specific area and service. This page is dedicated to Las Vegas Website Design. Although I focus on Las Vegas Web Design, it doesn't mean that is the only area I focus on. I provide web services to businesses through the United States and other regions of the world. My focus is on the Las Vegas Web Design market since I am able to much more easily meet with clients, but I have for certain projects been willing to travel and meet regarding web projects regardless of location.
