Successful web design and search engine optimization is having a conversation that both your neighbor AND a Google bot can understand. It might not be easy but it is possible!
And sometimes your neighbor might be harder to have a good conversation with!
As a former college soccer player, turned runner, turned triathlete, Katie Zech (that’s me!) is a jack-of-all-trades in athletics, just as she is with web design, SEO and graphic design.
My 17 years of agency experience managing projects, deadlines, and budgets translates into solid gold for Zech Design clients. Let’s start the conversation. How can Zech Design help your business grow and communicate?
“I had never experienced building a website and Zech Design made it practically painless and so easy. The owner, Katie Zech worked with our organizations vision and budget. Her suggestions were always on tract to getting us to where we wanted to be. We couldn’t be more excited with the finished product!”

Search Engine Optimization can feel intimidating, however, it is simply a conversation. Building a website with a solid SEO foundation means you are putting your sign out for everyone, especially Google, to learn more about your business.
Website SEO includes:
- Foundational SEO (titles, descriptions and alt text)
- On-page content
- Site structure
Graphic design is a core component to any design, whether website, print or social media. I utilize 20+ years of experience with Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign to create and edit graphics that complement and integrate within your brand and style.

Did you know a Google Maps listing is actually a Google Business Profile? Google Business Profiles enable business owners to claim a profile for their business that may appear in Google search results. Virtually any type of business can claim a Google Business Profile, which will display information that searchers may want to know, such as address, opening hours, and customer ratings.
Google maps marketing and optimization is a powerful aspect of local SEO. The power of your GBP (your description, google website, services, products, etc), is also impacted by citations, directories your business is listed in, links from other sites and more. This strategy helps your business be listed higher in local Search Engine Ranking Pages (SERPs). Schedule a consultation to see how your business ranks.
