Don't hire a web designer when you really need a webmaster.

Web designers are good at creating websites, but they leave small businesses doing all the heavy lifting; website updating, online marketing, and dealing with frustrating web and computer issues.

We are webmasters. We take responsibility for your website. We keep it updated, we solve problems, and we drive new leads through search engine optimization.

Oh, and we're pretty good at web design too.

Who We've Helped...recently

A few examples of small businesses we've helped succeed

North Point Outdoors

North Point needed an experienced web professional to build a custom website and take responsibility for their SEO so that they could focus on the operation of their very busy, ever-expanding business.


Diamant Asset Management
Financial Advisors

Diamant needed a complete website overhaul of a very dated web presence. They had an idea of what they wanted, but needed a skilled professional to implement the solution and stay with them for ongoing support.


Sarkisian Builders
Home Remodeling

Sarkisian is a long-standing family business with a stellar reputation. They knew they needed a strong website to grow, but without losing their familiar local feel. Ongoing support and help with online marketing was key.


Problems We Solve

Straightforward solutions for small businesses since 2002

This is the most common problem we're asked to solve, and we've very good at it after nearly 20 years. We build modern, mobile-friendly business websites that instantly improve your business' image and reputation.

Ripcord Design websites are built Google-friendly, and with SEO Boost we can crank that up even higher, leveraging decades of experience in online marketing to help you reach the coveted first page of Google search results and get clicks from potential customers.

There can be a lot of reasons for this issue, but the easiest fix is to design/redesign a professional website and then make sure you're ranking reasonably well on Google. We offer both as part of our small business web design.

We hear this all too often. On one hand it's disappointing and likely has been a source of frustration for you. On the other hand, we love being able to show just how professional and responsive a web design firm can be.

This is solved with our built-in website editor. Make your edits directly on the website and hit save - it's that easy. Unlike many other firms, we don't ask you to learn WordPress in order to make simple text changes to your website.

Ripcord hosting includes business email with strong spam filtering included. We also offer SpamZero for small businesses who need more advanced help ending the barrage of daily junk mail.

Perfect! We do. We've done this for a long time, for small businesses of all kinds - from attorneys to yoga studios. The fundamentals don't change - get in front of your target audience, present a clear, professional offer, and be able to deliver. Working with us will help you improve all three.
