Traverse City Web Design History
The Traverse City Web Design story starts in New York City, in 2001 when the company’s founders, Ray Weigel IV and Kate Botello, left corporate television and website design and began doing freelance web and search engine optimization work for companies and entertainers in the city’s theater and jazz scene.
“We were lucky to start with clients like Birdland Jazz Club, Jim Caruso, Billy Stritch, Avenue Q, The American Songbook Project and other entertainers, talent agencies & production companies. We made websites and email newsletters, and ran social media marketing campaigns that helped our clients sell tickets and get better and bigger gigs across the country.”
Eventually moving closer to home in Michigan in 2003, Ray and Kate started Traverse City Web Design as a way to bring web design skills to local Michigan businesses, helping to strengthen and build the state’s economy at the grass-roots level.
We worked hard to develop highly functioning websites for Michigan based companies, as well as continued to maintain close relationships with our national clients.
Traverse City Web Design Today
Now, over 10 years later, some of the staff has changed, and we’ve grown quite a bit, but we’re happy to say we’re still designing websites in Northern Michigan and still have many of those early clients. We haven’t stopped honing our design skills and are still helping companies discover new ways to use the internet better.
While based in Northern Michigan, our client base has continued to grow across the country. We’ve designed websites for banks, oil companies, manufacturing companies, corporate entities, and many, many small businesses. We’ve built large e-Commerce stores and small sites meant to capture donations for non-profits. We’ve also worked with many, many entrepreneurs who are just starting to get their businesses rolling.
If you’re looking for a new website, or just want to discover new ways your business can grow on the internet, contact us and let us know what you’re interested in.
