Web Design Portfolio Highights - Small Business Websites

At First Step Digital Dreams, we take pride in helping small businesses establish a strong online presence and achieve their digital dreams. If you would like to see all our work check out our Full Portfolio Page. Here are some examples of our recent work: 

For a home remodeling business, we created a website that showcases their services, portfolio, and customer reviews. We provided web design services to create a professional and user-friendly website, as well as SEO and copywriting to ensure that the website ranks well on search engines and effectively communicates the client's message.
We helped a personal real estate broker and consultant transfer their website from Homestead hosting to our reliable and secure hosting platform. We provided website redesign services to make the website responsive and professional, as well as SEO and copywriting to improve the website's visibility and effectiveness in generating leads.
For a dog waste removal business, we created a website that effectively communicates their unique value proposition and services. Although the client did not use our full package of SEO and design recommendations or our complete local SEO package, we're pleased to report that their website is already ranking on the first page of Google in less than a month after going live.


"My website and hosting were old and outdated. First Step Digital Dreams made updating it easy by sending instructions on how to switch to their hosting and then building my website. They worked with me every step of the way making changes and giving suggestions throughout the entire process. Now I have a modern functional website that I'm really happy with. I'd recommend First Step Digital Dreams to any small business looking for Web Design, especially if you are in the Syracuse area. "
