Sierra Web Solutions, LLC. is a Reno-based business specializing in website designs for small business and personal use.
I am Tracy Rhodes, owner of Sierra Web Solutions, LLC. I started programming mainframe computers in the late 1960’s as part of my undergraduate college education. My programming experience continued in the late 1970s during my journey into higher education leading to an MS in Aeronautical Engineering. By that time computer consoles were arriving on the technology scene and computer punch cards were being replaced. When personal computers became available I bought one – a Zenith 150 PC operating at a blistering 4.77 MHz processor speed. At that point I put away my Fortran manuals and started learning DOS and Basic programming.
In 2005 I designed my first website for an online store selling hand-made dog toys to pet owners. That effort introduced my to HTML and the world of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), for I found that coding a working website is a very small part of “being on the Internet.” Additional website projects brought experience in PHP programming and MySQL databases.
As my Internet education progressed I began taking on additional website development projects, primarily for non-profit organizations with no technology budgets. Most of the work was accomplished while I was on breaks from my ‘day job’ as an airline pilot. As my portfolio and experience grew, word of mouth brought additional projects. When I retired from flying the amount of time being dedicated to website development grew until the point was reached when I felt that a business license and web presence was necessary. And so Sierra Web Solutions, LLC was born.
Sierra Web Solutions, LLC is not strictly a Website Design firm. Some design firms or freelance designers will make your website look any way you want then give you the keys and say ‘have a nice drive.’ My intent with Sierra Web Solutions, LLC is to not only design your website for you, but to then help you promote and grow your Internet presence in a manner that will help you reach your business’ goals – to act as an Internet Business Consultant.
The reason you have a website for your business is either to conduct business on the Internet or to promote your physical business. In either case there must be realistic, measurable goals set for the performance of the website. I will help you reach those goals.
