We don’t design websites primarily for you or for us but for your site visitors — your web customers. The typical visitor will take about 7 seconds or less to decide whether to stay or click away. With about 700 million sites on the web, yours had better stand out from the crowd in a positive manner — or few will stick around long enough to find out what you have to say.
Simple Lives designs and builds websites guided by the best available knowledge of user experience. How do people use the web? How do they find information they need? How do they read a web page? What catches their eye; what is noticed only peripherally; what turns them off?
We strive for sites that are eye-catching, visually appealing, easy to use and navigate, standards compliant, search engine friendly — and which recognize that your customer is always right.
Very simply put, search engine optimization is twofold — what happens on the site that makes search engines take notice; and what happens off the site to increase the quality and volume of inbound traffic. If you get the first part right, you are making Google smile and also enhancing the experience of your site visitors. If you get the second part right, it will greatly contribute toward the goals of the first part.
Simple Lives will take care of everything possible to optimize your website for search engines. And we can provide expert guidance and direction for maximizing traffic. These services are provided at no extra charge.
We promise not to leave you when your site is done and will always be an email or a phone call away. If you need something changed on your site, just let us know. Most of the time, your request is handled within 24 hours or less.
New and updated content on your site is an important factor in grabbing that high search engine ranking. And it makes you look good and us look good. Best of all, your site visitors will be appreciative and come back to visit more often. Everyone wins!
Simple Lives is proud to have one of the best site maintenance plans in the business including a free hour each and every month — and a lot can be done in an hour! Many of our clients pay little or nothing to keep their site fresh and up to date over the life of the site.
OK. Not exactly a help desk. But we have extensive knowledge of things like web hosting, domain registration, blogging, ecommerce, email, content management, community forums, social media — among others. And we are more than happy to assist you with any or all of these to the best of our ability. There is a lot to know and no particular reason you need to keep up with it all. You have a business to run.
That’s why we’re here.

I worked with Ken for about 6 months on a website project for an organization I am involved with. There were many people involved and it was a challenging project. Ken always showed compassion and patience, and was always knowledgable on how best to position our organization's "Home" on the internet. The final product delivered by Ken was, not only an informational website, but one that is a marketing gem and will create more prospective members, more income and charitable contributions for our Center. I cannot express my gratitude enough for being the person that got to work with Ken and be the "go-between" between Ken and our organization. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

We are a small nonprofit, and we have had such a terrific experience with Ken of Orange County Website Design that we keep bringing him new website projects and readily recommend him to other organizations. First and foremost, his web designs are professional and attractive - we have received many compliments on the look of our websites. He is also responsive, flexible, and easy to work with. And, as a bonus, he has provided us with valuable advice on many aspects of website development and usability, such as which email list manager services to use. We enjoy our working relationship with Ken and look forward to collaborating with him on many web-related projects in the future.
