Since 2005, we have been creating affordable, uncluttered websites. We opened our doors as Umpqua Web Design two years later, based in Roseburg, Oregon. As we grew, our clientele went beyond Roseburg … in fact, beyond the United States.
Anyone living in Roseburg is well acquainted with the name Umpqua, a very common name in the area… have you heard of Umpqua Dairy? It is named after the Umpqua Indians, a band of the Coquille tribe.
As our reach grew, we found that our name was difficult for others to pronounce. In addition, as our services grew, “web design” no longer fit.
It was time to rebrand and Solo Web Solutions was born. We still offer the same integrity… and getting to know our clients and their businesses continues to be very rewarding.
Simple and Straightforward
Simple and Straightforward. That’s my motto. There’s a science to creating an effective website and I love helping businesses convey their unique style while making sure their site doesn’t get lost on the world wide web.
You don’t have to go broke trying to create a presence with your website. From web hosting, web design, and website safety, I create affordable sites that support your needs and get you noticed!
Cheryl Smith, Founder of Solo Web Solutions
Cheryl received a Bachelor’s Degree in Foods and Nutrition, but found that it didn’t meet the call on her life. She married and raised two sons and then went back to school … just to learn how to troubleshoot her computer.
Cheryl ended up falling in love with her software and web design classes. She went on to earn an Associate’s Degree in 2005 in Computer Information Systems and began developing websites.
She loves working jigsaw puzzles and solving problems, both useful in the world of web development.
“My greatest gift is my ability to sort through all the things you want to share with your audience and arrange them so that they can easily be found, turning viewers into clients.” ~Cheryl Smith, owner
We Love WordPress
Over the years, clients have asked me if they could maintain their own sites. Before I started using WordPress, this wasn’t an easy task. Either the client had to learn HTML and CSS, or I needed to find an after market content management system that was affordable.
Content Management Systems (CMS) make it easy to edit existing pages, including photos and text. WordPress gives this flexibility and more. That’s why I have chosen to make WordPress my CMS of choice.
