About Pacific Northwest Web Works

Hi, I'm Alex

I have spent most of my adult life in the tech sector. I worked for years doing IT work including running my small computer repair shop. My life was focused on helping others with their technology problems and making technology easier for them.

And then I married Ashley. While I had creative talents with technology, Ashley has always been a crafter. Soon after we got married, we started taking her crafts to a local farmer’s market. It was a lot of fun for both of us.

But like many small business owners find out rather quickly, a storefront or market alone won’t grow a successful business. Soon I was learning as much as I could about email marketing, branding, and how to build an online store to expand our reach. I had built websites in the past, but e-commerce is much more than the run-of-the-mill website.

As we focused down the craft business into a candle and soap business, we started gaining sales online. I also found that I enjoyed the process of building e-commerce sites. As time went on, I moved away from repairing computers and into web design full time. And so Pacific Northwest Web Works was born.

Over time we have built websites for all kinds of businesses. But our passion has always been with small businesses. Those just like us. And since we learned so much growing the candle business, I really got a good feel for the marketing that goes into making a business in a small town successful online.

Together Ashley and I design and create the websites. Ashley is not very techy, so I rely on her to help simplify the websites I build. This makes it easy for our clients to manage the basics of their website. All without having to deal with all the DIY which causes so much stress for other non-tech business owners. Your time is more valuable than sitting behind a screen hoping what you are making works and looks professional.
