History of Traverse City Web Design

The Traverse City Web Design story actually began in New York City.  It was  2001 when the company’s founders, Ray Weigel IV and Kate Botello, left corporate television and began creating websites completing online marketing jobs 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. We still work with some of those original clients today. ” – Ray Weigel, Co-Founder & Creative Director

Eventually we made the decision to move closer to our roots and ventured to Traverse City, Michigan in 2003.

Ray and Kate started Traverse City Web Design, LLC. as a way to bring their web design skills to local Michigan businesses, helping to strengthen and build the state’s economy at the grass-roots level.
