Following my own words of wisdom, I started Inara several years ago. What I didn’t realize starting out was how much my work would contribute to the dreams of others and how rewarding this would be for me. From the love of seeing a new website help a business grow their clients and raise their prices, the primary mission of Inara was born: To create agency level web design accessible to small businesses, local start-ups, artists, and charities.
Have you outgrown your current website or logo and are looking for something fresh, smart and fabulous? Or do you just need a flyer designed for a new promotion? No matter if your project is big or small, web or print, Inara has got you covered.

Building a website from scratch involves writing a significant amount of code, even before you have something worth looking at. That initial work consequently drives the costs of web design up. That’s why Inara skips this step altogether, and ventures into the world of themes: pre-assembled templates designed by brilliant developers that come with the essential elements of a web page already in place. By picking the right template as the framework to build your website, and then having the right skills to get in there and customize it, it’s possible to personalize it and look pretty much like anything you want ensuring your website looks like nobody else’s.
The blink of an eye: that’s how long you have to impress your online visitors. People judge a website in less than a second, and their first impressions affect the way they perceive that business as a whole. That’s why you need a website that stands out from the crowd. But, beauty isn’t everything and regardless of how it looks, your website should also work for your user. If it isn’t easy to use, visitors will leave. At Inara we focus on making your site attractive, user-friendly and very easy to manage yourself utilizing the WordPress content management system (CMS). If you seek more than just a website, Inara is here for that too.
Because there’s no point in having a website that nobody can find, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) should be a critical component of your digital marketing strategy. Inara will optimize your website in ways that will make it rank well on Google and other search engines. We also will set your site up on Google Analytics that will allow you to monitor a variety of key statistics including how many visitors your website has, what keywords they searched when they found your site, and your visitors demographic location, just to name a few.
Let’s get down to business! Using the contact form below please provide answers to the following questions and within 48 hours (excluding weekends) you will receive a response from Inara regarding your inquiry:
|1.||Do you have an existing website that needs a makeover or an entirely new website designed?|
|2.||Do you already have a logo for your business? If not, do you need one designed?|
|3.||How many additional pages to the home page do you expect your site to be? (ie. About, Services, Contact, ect.)|

|6.||After viewing the pricing options listed above and the example websites, which level of customization do you think you would like?|
|7.||Would you like some custom graphics to be designed for the site? If so, how many? For example, a custom graphic can be as small as a button in the shape of a symbol in your logo, an icon made to highlight specific information (see Streetmeettruck.ca for a good example of this in the three buttons below the image slider), or any number of other things that add a personal touch to your site.|
|8.||Are there any other special functions your website will require? (ie. e-commerce, member portal, photo gallery(ies), contact form, sign-up form, booking service, ect.)|
|9.||What level of search engine optimization would you like? (ie. Minimal, medium, maximum)|
