ABOUT ME

I have been in advertising design for more than twenty years, designing graphics for newspaper, yellow pages and website publishing. In 1996 with the closure of McFarland Graphix, where I was Senior Designer, I faced starting my career over. I foresaw the future of advertising and marketing on the web. I took my design skills, went back to school and studied to become a web designer.

MY MISSION

since 2010

Web Concepts LLC

Owner & Designer

During my time working throughout Southwest Virginia as an e-commerce consultant for a state sponsored agency, I realized the average small business simply could not afford the inflated fees traditionally charged by web developers. I formulated my business plan to fill this special need for a few special, small businesses. My desire was to serve entrepreneurs who would become my friends as well as my clients.

I am not a designer for big business; I am here to assist small business owners who may not have a clear understanding of marketing, but understands the importance of branding.

My price structure was developed to make it possible for these entrepreneurs to have a quality branding package that is affordable for their budgets.

TESTIMONIALS

Something Smells Good! Aromatherapy

Jenny Wallace Owner & Founder -
Something Smells Good! Aromatherapy

I have worked with Mikki for several years now and would highly recommend her. She just built my new and improved website and it is wonderful! She is a pleasure to work with and has always responded right away to anything I needed assistance with. In addition to being extremely dependable and always helpful, Mikki is a very talented designer. She always goes above and beyond what is asked and looks for new ways to exceed design expectations. Always aware of the latest technology, she is a fantastic asset. New orders are already coming in to the revised site! She’s the best and I can’t thank her enough!

I was referred to Mikki by a good friend and contacted Mikki with the need for creating a logo and website(blog). What impressed me most about Mikki was that she wanted me to love my new logo. Not like it or be satisfied with it, but love it. She listened to my ideas, added her experience and we have what I think is a beautiful site and a wonderful logo. Mikki puts her heart into her projects, she is professional and talented. She provides great support and responds promptly to questions. I am very satisfied with this project and have asked her to work on another for me.

McBride Innovative Fencing

Pam McBrideOwners -
McBride Rennovative Fencing, Churchill, Tenn

I believe God puts people in our lives for a reason. Just as we were feeling overwhelmed about trying to get a website developed, a friend of mine said someone she knew had just gone live with her website and promised to get the name of the developer. We looked at some of Web Conscepts' sites, and then gave Mikki a call. After one meeting we knew she was the designer for us. We had complete faith in her abilities, and have been very well pleased with her designs. She is very quick and efficient and so pleasing to work with. She helped us in so many ways and with wonderful suggestions. We are very happy with our website!

Chilhowie Christian Church

Mary Lynne Branson Administrative Assistant -
Chilhowie Christian Church, Chilhowie, VA

Mikki has worked with us from the initial construction of our website to this date. Mikki has been most helpful, prompt and knowledgeable in helping us with our site and maintaining it on a regular basis. When we need an update or regular changes we send them to Mikki and they are put on the site in a most speedy manner. She is very creative and we often just lay it in her lap and she runs with not only the information we give her but has to come up with a design as well. She always does this in such a helpful manner to us who are not knowledgeable of web design in the least. She is a joy to work with and we look forward to many years of productive websites while working with Mikki.

I am so grateful I was referred to Mikki to build my brand's website. She was a wealth of information, provided me with knowledge to work independently, was extremely patient, and always went above and beyond to ensure my website fit my expectations. No matter how many questions I asked her, she was kind, patient and thorough. Thank you, Mikki, for making this such a pleasant experience! I look forward to working with you on another site soon.

Our website is unbelievable! It is crazy how fast you truly understood what our company is all about and how you put my thoughts online. You are the best!

Advantage Billing Solutions

Carrie Goss Advantage Billing Solutions, Bristol, TN

As a small business owner, I have tried several web site design options. I have tried to tackle it myself, enlisted the help of friends, and tried an online service. I do not recommend any of these routes! Mikki was recommended to me by a local college and I have been very impressed with her services. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. She helped me understand my site and offered me valuable suggestions on how to improve my web content so that I could improve my search rankings. Mikki is professional, prompt and very friendly; she is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Mikki to others without reservation.

Interstate Awning &Sign

Trever Bartley Owner - Interstate Awning &Sign - Bluff City, Tenn.

Interstate Awning & Sign, LLC asked Mikki to take over our new web site design. She absolutely knocked it out of the park. I am so happy with the site. She takes time to explain why she is doing specific things and how it will effect the site. I will call Mikki again and again.

We couldn't have completed our new web site without the help of Mikki. She is excellent not only at building website but teaching you how to maintain your site once it goes live.

Tri-City Realty Group

Karen Cox Broker - Tri-City Realty Group, Bristol TN/VA

There are several reasons why I know Mikki Barker is a great web designer: first, she really cares; second, she has the experience and background in web designing and marketing; third, she wants you to be happy with your design and teach you how to have control of your web page so you can make changes yourself and not have to rely on someone else; lastly, she is a finisher – she won't rest until it's done. Mikki has spent countless hours with us and it is greatly appreciated!

SERVICES

Web Design

I design websites that are user-friendly and easy to navigate. I listen to my client and strive to give them the web site they need, want and will be proud to have represent their company.

Mobile Development

It is estimated that almost 50% of all Internet access is made using either a smart-phone, iphone, tablet or ipad. All web sites I develop are responsive to the device it's being viewed on.

Social Media

Facebook has rapidly become an intricate part of any businesses Internet presence. With every web site I design I also design a Facebook cover and profile image to reflect the look and feel of the companies web site. This aids my clients in branding their image.
