 Web Design  


 Marketing Consulting/Coaching



We help clients build their websites…BUT, our real strength is helping them think through what it is they are trying to accomplish with the site, which tends to be a LOT more marketing to really make a website effective.

That said:

  • We develop cost-effective, usable websites.
  • We are now concentrating on client editable websites using the WordPress platform.

  • We are currently accepting clients.


CommCraft does marketing consulting in Silicon Valley, California.As principal of CommCraft, I have been working with primarily small businesses for over 34 years.  I find that slight "steering" or coaching is all that is necessary in many instances.  For example, a client might call to bounce around an idea or to see what I think about an approach, and that's it. Of course, we can do more, but sometimes just reaching out is all that is needed.  For more information about coaching/consulting click here.

CommCraft is now a HostGator web hosting Affiliate

Believe me, I have tried, and placed, many clients with shared web hosting services over the past 15 - 20  years.  The past year and a-half or so, I have been gradually moving my own personal accounts and those of many of my clients over to HostGator.


  • A real human answers the phone
  • All of their support is in the USA (Texas of all places!)
  • They have 24/7 support
  • Their on-line chat service is great (and prompt), too
  • Their pricing is terrific, especially if you go for one of the year option plans
  • Installing WordPress is an absolute snap (However, you'll need to call them if you are setting up a WordPress test site first before you have an URL associated with it)
  • Etc., etc.

They typically have a 20% off the first year (paid in advance).  I think it is well worth it and would recommend the "Baby Plan" as a starter as opposed to the "Hatchling".  This link will take you there: HostGator.

Disclaimer:  As an affiliate, I do make a tiny commission if you do sign up.
