Hi, my name is Jana Brech, and I am the author of webwisewording.com. I live in Brisbane, Australia. I provide website reviews and other web related services.
I have a passion for usability – for creating websites that optimize the user’s experience. I enjoy building websites that “zing” – websites that hit the mark of providing valuable content, have aesthetic appeal, and marry the business goals of the website owner with the needs of the users.
Is there something I can do for you? Well, it all depends upon your needs. Often, I can cast an ‘expert’ eye over your website, and give you a few quick pointers to improve usability, content and keyword optimization for search engines. Or I can provide a more comprehensive service. Here are some of the things I can do:-
- Website reviews
- I review websites for their quality of content, keyword optimization and usability. This can range from an informal, quick assessment to a detailed review of multiple pages. It can be beneficial to have a third party review your website for usability issues, conformance to industry standards, search engine optimization and conformance to your business requirements. It is best when someone who is not the developer or designer and can look at the site with a fresh eye. Because of my business background, I can often see undiscovered marketing potential in the existing website.
- Website development
- I have a select list of clients whose needs I look after on an on-going basis. Contact me if you need a website and you think my comprehensive approach would suit your needs.
- Website facilitation
- If you have complex website requirements, you may need an entire team of people to design and develop your website. In that situation, I can help by acting as a facilitator or go-between, communicating between the business owner and the technical team, and ensuring that the website meets the business goals of the owner. I have an understanding of business requirements, and can also speak the “language” (jargon) of the technical people. Often, technical people who are experts in aspects of website design or development, do not have an understanding of business needs. This is where a facilitator can smooth the way, and communicate the owner’s business requirements to the techies, and ensure that the website meets those requirements. I also have the capacity to be the “user’s advocate” and ensure that the website performs well according to the end-user’s requirements.
- Website maintenance
- I can provide a comprehensive service to help keep your website ticking over. This means helping to keep your site secure, up to date, and well optimized for search engines. It can also mean adding new content on a regular basis. Websites which are built with Content Managements Systems (such as Joomla, Drupal, WordPress) must be kept up-to-date with the latest software releases, to help protect the sites against security breaches from hackers and malware. This is becoming more and more critical.
We are delighted with Jana’s development of our www.healthinstitute.edu.au website. Jana has created a beautiful new site for us, and re-worked our existing content to maximise usability, impact, aesthetic appeal and credibility. We are very pleased with the end result which has boosted our student enrolments. We have subsequently engaged Jana to develop another large site for us, which is still in construction. Highly recommended.”–Shanti Gowans, CEO, Health Institute Australia
