Welcome!

Hello, my name is Brian Anderson, owner of JSOL Software. I am a freelance, all-in-one 'web guy', specializing in virtually everything web-related. If you've heard of it, I've probably done it! I have been based on California's Central Coast since 2003, but my clients range all over California. My niche has always been a one-stop-shop for small to medium size companies who require ongoing professional web services without having to hire a full time web developer.

Discuss, Design, Develop, & Maintain

What do you need? A brief overview.

I begin by describing the multitude of options for your site. With your input, I can create a fresh look and new design, increase internet traffic to your site via search engine optimization, create a system that manages itself, or even improve social media and networking for your business, school, or other organization (to name only a few). Whether your needs are specific to your medium or you just need someone to provide ongoing maintenance to your site, we can work cooperatively to achieve your goals in creating, maintaining, and redesigning your custom website. Let's have a discussion to figure out exactly what you need as well as the most efficient way to accomplish it.



Discuss, Design, Develop, & Maintain

Something new, or something improved?

When contemplating the design and layout of your current (or prospective) site, the first question to ask yourself is, "Do I want a new, improved design, or do I simply want to give my site a facelift?" While browsing the web, perhaps you visited a site with a particular "look" or "feel." By identifying features in which you were interested, I can work to integrate the new, desirable components into your site. From the words of the great Pablo Picasso, "Good artists copy. Great artists steal."

On the other hand, perhaps you're looking for a fresh start. Whether you're frustrated with your current site or looking to set up a brand new site, we can gather ideas and examples, compile and organize them, and design something new, and more importantly, unique to your preferences.



Discuss, Design, Develop, & Maintain

How do you want it developed? (Are you aware of the options?)

Under the surface, there are infinite avenues arriving at the same end-product: a beautiful, functional website. How it's developed (constructed?) predicts not only performance level, but also the amount of time and money spent on site maintenance. Popular options include (but are not limited to) static HTML, a CMS system (Wordpress), and custom and dynamic (PHP, JSP, Javascript, etc).



Discuss, Design, Develop, & Maintain

How much are my services? And how much does it cost to build a web site?

Well... that depends...
The $$$ can range anywhere between a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. The cost depends on the amount of design time, the amount of implementation time and the type of system (e.g. CMS) that runs it. However, I understand that web sites can be very expensive and the most common hurdle holding someone back from having a premier web site that will help launch their business is the upfront cost. To remedy this, if you can not pay the total cost of the web site upfront, we will come up with a contract that will not only allow you to affordably pay over time (12-24 months), BUT will also include web hosting and my on-going web maintenance & marketing support! This way, we can work together to make sure your web site is utilized to it's fullest potential!
A MODERN, FULLY FEATURED & COMPATIABLE WEB SITE = EXCELLENT WEB PRESENCE = INCREASED CUSTOMER BASE = MORE REVENUE = A WEB SITE THAT PAYS FOR ITSELF IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME. It's a Win-Win!!!

Need Ongoing Web Services?

Maybe you need continuous web work, or maybe you just need someone helping you with your email lists & online ads; but you cannot justify hiring and in-house designer. Not a problem! I offer affordable maintenance retainer packages ranging from 4 – 40 hours per month.

And! I offer premium web hosting for only $35/month ($350/year)!




About Brian Anderson

First off, what does JSOL stand for?

When I started my business in 2002, I developed Java Applications and Java/JSP web sites. At the time, Java/JSP was a leader in server side scripting and programming languages. JSOL represented Java Solutions. Since that time, web standards and practices have evolved, new languages have appeared, and specializing just became unnecessary. Thus, I abandoned the 'Java Solutions,' and from a combination of maintaining roots and indifference, I decided to keep the JSOL.

Now, a bit about myself:

I grew up in a little town called Nevada City, California: a foothill town at the base of the Sierra Nevadas. To say the least, my passion is the great outdoors. When I'm not at my computer, you'll find me trail running, snowboarding, golfing, or surfing (to name a few). In 1996, I moved to San Luis Obispo to pursue my education goals, and I am proud to say, I'm one of the lucky few who decided to stay and enjoy the SLO Life!

My niche has always been that of a web designer who is NOT JUST a web designer, but someone who is intimately familiar with a client's business and can provide online marketing, IT consulting, photography, print/media, etc., from start to finish. This broad-based approach is ideal for start-ups, small businesses, and design & marketing firms who need help evolving and keeping up with this fast-paced industry.

I not only develop and maintain my own web sites: I also sub-contract and handle accounts for other web design & marketing firms (examples upon request).
