About Charleston WebBuilder

Building a website is about building a future for your business. We take that seriously.
Charleston WebBuilder was founded by Donna Powell after a successful 20-year career in Sales and Marketing. She studied web design with the Art Institute of Atlanta and apprenticed for a year with young technical gurus before launching her own agency in 2007.

Donna’s passion to create quality, affordable websites for small businesses and non-profits is her special niche. Offering personalized support and collaboration is unique in this technical field and her clients appreciate her approach to their business goals.

Formerly with CharlestonWebweaver, Donna started both that agency and CHARLESTON WEBBUILDER with  a simple goal: to make custom websites affordable and accessible to everyone.

Expanding into the emerging world of ecommerce, she chose Shopify as the most reliable and fully featured platform on which to build e-stores. Shopify ExpertShopify selected Charleston WebBuilder to be an Authorized Shopify Expert in 2016, and that association is still in place.

So, with you,  we build something good for the future. This is what we do. Together

My expert was very professional and knowledgeable of the task I ask her to complete. Also my expert was very easy to contact whenever I had question. I would hire my expert again for any other projects.

We needed more than a web designer.

I am pleased to have found Donna Powell and her services through Charleston Web Builder. My husband and I found we outgrew our hobby and needed a platform to sell. Both of us have little to no experience with today’s technology.

We needed more than a web designer. We needed branding, logo services, and very importantly training. We needed to be able to continue to grow in an e commerce environment after our web developer service contract ended.

If you are looking for a graphic designer and web developer, you have found one. Donna will walk you through all the unknowns of developing your website. In addition, Donna will walk you through the applications you will need and coordinate issues you may with the host program.

Donna was great.  Very capable and worked under her own initiative.  I gave a very broad overview of my expectations and allowed her design talents and knowledge to fill in the detail.  I was particularly impressed with Donna's attention to detail and her eagerness to learn about the products that I sell.

Donna was a pleasure to work with. She was very engaged and motivated to deliver an outstanding website. I had a vision going into the project and she was great at incorporating my aesthetic ideas. I also appreciated that she showed me how to make changes in the future.

Charleston WebBuilder has been there to help establish and promote my ideals

Since the inception of my business career, Charleston WebBuilder has been there to help establish and promote my ideals. My growth of my website turned out to be an exciting adventure as the team at Charleston Webweaver captured the spirit of my business through imaginative captions, pictures and presentation.
I feel secure in my choice since Charleston WebBuilder has always been there for me, offering continuing support.

Always there for you…

I am not very computer literate and she simplified things for me. Donna set goals for me which helped to urge me on to help with new content for the site. I did not have a logo so Donna sifted through images and came up with 2 choices for me. … If I have any further web site needs I will go to Donna for help. Charleston Web Builder is a good choice for you. Thank you Donna for all your help and patience with my unending questions.”

…couldn’t be happier with the choice I made

I chose Charleston Web Builder over two other web designers, and couldn’t be happier with the choice I made…She laid out the entire process so me, a computer novice (and computer hater!) could understand.
I would most certainly recommend Donna and Charleston WebBuilders if you need a professional appearing website. Donna also created the Rack Cards for my business and they too turned out great…!.
