COVID-19 Resources

Winterset Websites is operated from my home office in Des Moines, Iowa, which means I am able to continue providing service as usual at this time. I’ve been helping all kinds of businesses to adapt their online presence in various ways: products for sale (digital and physical), videos, podcasts, updates and announcements, and more. If you’re looking for some ideas to enhance your digital presence during this time, feel free to check out the resources below or give me a call to brainstorm. Consultations are free.

You can add a “Subscribe” button to your website inviting people to join the list, and you can also add people manually.
