Christina Petrie, Web Designer and Strategist


(upbeat music) – When I was thinking about
creating a new website, it was mostly because of the website that I had created on my own. It wasn’t working for my clients. It was kind of clunky, and
it didn’t really reflect who I am and what I’m offering. (upbeat music) – I know that my website
is the very first thing that people see, it’s my brand, it’s my face, it’s my product, and if I can’t win them
over with that website, I’m not going to be able to get a customer, and hopefully I want
those customers for life. (upbeat music) – I feel like I’m more
than just a web designer, because I’m really interested in making an effective website. A website that generates leads
and customers and revenue. – So my goal originally
was to have a website that was smooth, easy to operate, and also easy for clients to navigate. – I needed a consultant,
I needed a mentor. I even needed a cheerleader
for this website, because this was my first product, and my first foray into ecommerce. I had a lot of questions,
but I also had a lot of needs that I needed, and she stepped right up to be able to build all of that. (upbeat music) – Because my clients
and I do so much work. I mean, we’re really so
involved in this project, that often I see it more as a partnership, and I take a really vested interest in their business and their growth. – Christina’s so much
more than a designer, and I think it’s because
she brings to her work her whole heart, and it really reflects in the product that she
is able to design for you. And it’s because she’s
working from this heart space, she really connects with her
clients on a deeper level than just pretty pictures and words. (upbeat music) – I think so many people go into
building a website sort of afraid to showcase themselves or to put themselves out there, but when we’re done,
they come out of it so much more confident. Confident about themselves, and confident about their business. With so much clarity and focus. – My website is my business. It is the sun, moon, and stars to Bedrock. So I rely on it a thousand percent and I wouldn’t be able to have any business today
if it weren’t for that website. – I have seen an improvement in client’s
being driven to the website and actually doing something on the website, right. Buying something or signing up for something. I have seen an increase in that, because I have this availability now that they can do that on my website. (upbeat music) – She was able to just
pull all of my ideas, my hopes, and create this
beautiful website for me that looked exactly the
way that I wanted to. – I have a vested interest
in my client’s success because when they succeed, I succeed. When they’re business grows, then I know I’ve done my job. (upbeat music)
