Who is Zelative

We are a creative family and network of awesome professionals who make online businesses and create an online presence for our clients. My wife Sandra is a graphic designer and has a Master’s in Fine Art and I am a WordPress developer with an I.T. degree and a background in photography.

We have been at it for 10 years but have twice as much experience in related technical and creative projects.  I appear to be at the helm but we do have a strong-willed 10 year old behind the curtain. 

We recently settled on the Eastern Shore of Maryland where I grew up.  Between the two of us, we have lived up and down the East Coast.

We would like to think that we are easy and enjoyable to work with. There is a ton to know when having an online business.

It helps if you have someone nice to explain your options or someone you can trust to do the work for you and look out for your best interest. It would be hard to find a competitor that can out nice us.

The artists in us also means you will get a site you are proud to promote.  The end product is really important to us. Our first goal is to make sure the site meets your expectations but secondly, we like to build sites that could be framed and put on the wall.

Design Process

Our process involves getting to know your brand, your goals, and the problems you face. After clearly defining the needs of the site, competition analysis, and great existing solutions. We will put together some design boards to further find the right direction.

Once we have a clear vision of the direction you would like to go in, we will work up a mockup that will provide the proper visual guide to easily discuss changes. SEO and performance are considered throughout the planning and design.

Eastern Shore of Maryland

If you live on the shore we are available to take pictures and video to be used for your site and marketing material. You might also appreciate working with someone that has roots here.

When I am checking out our local competition I am surprised to see they are not local. The companies that are showing up first in search results mostly live off the shore and often out of the state. Anyone can make a webpage for a location and it appears to be a local site.

Great Value

Our business model removes the overhead of the brick and mortar agency. HR and foosball table maintenance are costs not passed on to you. This does not mean as a client you will have less accountability and control. Our design process is the same as an agency and the dashboard provided for SEO work enables you to track work and results.

Competitive market experience

We began ZEL as a national Company and have worked on projects internationally. For some reason, we are popular in Australia. If your eastern shore business appeals to a broader audience, we will reach your audience wherever they live.

Cutting Costs

We get the virtual location thing. As a boutique studio, We partner with other professionals to handle monthly SEO work, social media management, email marketing, and online shop maintenance. This cuts down on our overhead, which we can pass on. A local office might happen soon, but we will keep the foosball table at home and keep our amazing national team.
