About Me

 

Who am I?

My name is Susie Baity.

I’m a designer and developer who is inspired by the bravery and optimism of entrepreneurs.

I’ve been around small business owners my whole life — my dad, my husband, and now me.  I spent a decade and a half in the financial services industry working with independent financial advisors who are…..you guessed it…..small business owners.  I have volunteeered with dozens of non-profits over the course of my life and remain amazed at the dedication and ingenuity of the folks who make them run.

I have incredible respect for what it takes emotionally and financially to strike out on your own.  I understand that every decision to invest in your business comes out of your pocket, not from a corporate slush fund.  For non-profits, every dollar spent on something other than your core mission must be carefully weighed.  I get it and I’m here to help.

You actually can’t do it all  (and you shouldn’t).

You need an online presence.  It is mission critical, but managing it can be such a distraction that you spend more time working on your business than in your business and that’s no good for anyone.

You know what you should do…

Whether you are a sole owner, partnership or small group of stakeholders, I know you have heard all of the “shoulds” when it comes to having an online presence — website, social media, to blog or not to blog, email lists, newsletters….the list goes on and on.

Then there are the things that you didn’t even know you needed to worry about — website security, keeping your site up to date, or making your site accessible to people with disabilities (yep, that’s a thing and not considering it can cost you).

 

Your website needs to be an asset, not a burden.

That’s where I come into your picture.  Whether you need a quick update to your website, a security hygiene check or a complete overhaul, I can help get your mind off of your website and back on your core business.  I will listen to your concerns, help you prioritize what needs to be done, and execute your vision beautifully, on time, and within your budget.

As a small business owner, I realized early on that to bring my best self to my work I would need to outsource the necessary parts of running a business that I lack skills in.  Enter Susie.

As a creative and organizational mastermind, her guidance and knowledge in website design and social networking has helped me stay focused and connected to my clientele. Additionally, she has an innate ability to see the bigger picture project and  then narrow it down to bite sized pieces – perfect for a business on a shoestring budget like mine.
 
I am forever grateful and highly recommend Susie!
