Nuts and Bolts Media was founded in February 2011 and became a Limited Liability Company (LLC) in August 2012. Owner Andrea Whitmer has 18 years of experience in web design, coding (HTML, PHP, CSS), and server administration.
Our goal is to make the internet a more functional and less intimidating place for individuals and small businesses.
Our name was chosen because it reflects what we do – we give our clients the basics, or nuts and bolts, they need to develop a website and social media presence. Then we step out of the way (though we’re always available for support if needed!) We believe that everyone is capable of having an attractive website that meets their needs – sometimes they just need a little help getting started.
Good website design isn’t just about looks. It’s about empowering our clients to meet their goals, whether they want to sell products, gain exposure, or just develop a presence on the web. It is with those goals in mind that we approach every project – our clients are diverse and so are their needs.
Some design firms take over their clients’ sites, allowing clients only limited access and requiring monthly maintenance fees. At Nuts and Bolts Media, we believe that you are the only owner of your site and your content – we’re here to help, but we want you to learn to do as much on your own as you’re comfortable doing. All Nuts and Bolts clients retain full access to their sites and are not required to purchase ongoing services unless they choose to do so.
We seek to develop a long-term relationship with each of our clients. The internet is constantly changing, so it makes sense to have a web presence that can adapt to those changes. With flexible design and support options, as well as an understanding of each client’s unique goals, Nuts and Bolts Media is able to provide comprehensive solutions at a variety of price points.
Nuts and Bolts Media joined the Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce in September 2012. Owner Andrea Whitmer was presented with a new business plaque at the October 2012 Chamber meeting. We look forward to the opportunity to network with local business owners and explore ways that our services can benefit them.
