I’m Carloscar Tovar, web designer in San Antonio, Texas. I’ve been a freelance since 2004 and helping businesses launch and improve their digital marketing strategy.
I discovered web design in 1996 when I was in high school, using free web hosting companies like Geocities and Tripod to host my websites, which were dedicated to NBA stars (here’s living proof).
There are many advantages of hiring a freelance or solopreneur like myself instead of a web design agency:
- Reduced costs
- Easier communication process
- Smoother project development flow
Nowadays, there are plenty of options to have online presence: directories like Yelp, social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube), website auto-generators and builders like Wix, Squarespace and Shopify, and many more.
But specific markets and medium and big companies need web designers, they can’t rely on generic website builders and generators.
I offer targeted-solutions for specific needs. Not everyone needs a super-complicated, state of the art website.
I love doing what I do, to be able to use both my left and right brain hemispheres to design creative solutions which rely on complex IT infrastructures.
I’m proficient in graphic manipulation, branding, illustration, prototyping of user interfaces, and video-editing. Also, I can code custom web solutions or use standard exiting platforms and customize them to my client’s needs. WordPress is my favorite because it allows me to create robust websites and save my clients time and money.
My analytical personality allows me to look at search engine optimization and statistics reports and be able to suggest best practices to increment visitors and conversions, and decrease bounce rate and shopping cart abandonment.
I’m reliable, efficient, and trustworthy and I’ve helped hundreds of companies over the years. If you’re interested on hiring me let’s schedule a phone call to have an initial interview so you can decide if we’re a good fit.
Web design and development
I create fast and SEO optimized websites, with brand consistency and user experience as top priorities.
If you’re looking for WordPress design and development, you’re in luck. WordPress websites are my specialty. I can help you create a WordPress website from the ground up, or also assist you just with maintenance and edits.
With me, you don’t need an in-house web department. I’ll take care of your company’s website content updates, plugins, themes, design, reports, analytics and more, for only a fraction of the cost.
I’ll take care of what your team of 3 or 5 people is taking care of. I’ll keep you informed of everything that is done with your website and provide you with statistics every first day of the month. My process is transparent and effective.
Whether you choose a monthly retainer or per-job rate, I’ll be available and put 100% of my effort to give you the results you expect.
Search Engine Optimization
SEO is more an art than a science. In my years of experience I’ve learned to read the search engines algorithms and to keep my knowledge up-to-date, and applied it in my websites, and my clients’.
In the same way as the website maintenance service, I provide my clients with monthly reports and statistics so the progress can be visualized easily.
I provide web hosting for companies that require always available tech support and assistance, in a secure, stable and fast environment.
With fast, ready-to-answer, direct support from myself, you won’t be dealing with answering machines, waiting times, or support tickets. I’ll be always ready help, ready to troubleshoot, whether on the phone, Slack, or in person in your office or business.
