The minds behind Sarge Sites are (in order) Jon, Paul, and Kristel. Having met in the early 2010's, the trio quickly realized that their unique skill-sets complemented the others' thoroughly. While Jon's background is found primarily in server engineering and systems programming, Paul maintains a keen eye for web design and broad artistry, and Kristel carries an extensive history in Analytics-Driven Operations and Organizational Development. Between them, the team has grown websites and companies from genesis to multi-million dollar revenues by employing specific, key strategies toward their web platforms, analytics, product designs, and marketing outreach campaigns.
It wasn't long before Jon, Paul, and Kristel converged their skills and formed Sarge Sites: an organization dedicated to growing the next generation of businesses in a personal way. Sarge Sites is not just a web development firm. Sarge Sites is a business catalyst. Our goal is to grow and scale our clients' businesses by employing a tailored digital approach and backing it with a bevy of process operations enhancements. While we will always be able to offer basic web agency tools like hosting and design consulting, our best work comes from deep integration and partnership. To learn more, please reach out and begin your business' journey with us.
Our team takes great pride in our partner businesses and maintains strong, consistent relationships over time to ensure the compounding growth of these organizations. These are just a few of the teams we've integrated with.
InTheNumber is a new breed of apparel company. Beyond the scope of making great looking clothing and pieces that are both comfortable and sleek, InTheNumber’s mission is to be the catalyst by which communities come together. Wearing a piece of “I’M IN” gear represents membership in the shared goal of neighborhoods joining forces to support and invest in one another.
When Sarge Sites partnered with InTheNumber we weren’t alone. While we assumed responsibility over site health, reliability, performance, and security, InTheNumber’s own creative and marketing team opted to retain all design and artistic oversight. This split-team approach lead to remarkably productive operations: Sarge Sites was free to implement new features, functionalities, and workflows on the site while the ITN Marketing team was clear to move quickly and roll out new designs at the same time.
As InTheNumber continues to grow and unite communities across the nation, Sarge Sites is ensuring the scalability and security of InTheNumber’s digital assets ahead of time. Whether it be securing a user account system, developing a full eCommerce structure, or creating an affiliate / social-media framework, we’re ready to support our partner in their growth and mission.

The difference is shocking. We didn't realize the impact web performance would have on our user analytics.
Our relationship with School Ministries Ohio first began amidst an internal rebranding discussion. Formerly known as WeCareForStudents, the team sought out a fresh name, design, and overall modern experience for their clients, volunteers, and guests. Chief among their goals was the universal friendliness of their site's experience to a variety of visitors.
School Ministries' own Words like 'warm', 'inviting', and 'delightful' helped to shape the direction of our team's design patterns for the site and yielded a color pallette of gentle and playful blues and greens, while the steadfast nature of their efforts informed our experience flow to be highly capturing visually yet highly informational textually.
School Ministries Ohio's community outreach programs and consistent ability to authentically connect with students was something that excited our team. We continue to take great pride in calling School Ministries Ohio one of our partners and helping them to reach new heights in their mission.

The Sarge Sites team made us feel confident in the process and helped us understand how to use our website so we can be confident in making updates in the future.
Haiti Deaf Outreach is a non-profit organization created to support children at an orphanage school for the deaf in Haiti. Since its genesis, Haiti Deaf Outreach's goal has always been to develop and grow these students in positive and nurturing ways, and to properly prepare them for the road ahead. They focus on developing each child's personal faith relationship as the foundation of their mission.
Sarge Sites has partnered with Haiti Deaf Outreach since the origins of their digital presence. Our teams worked closely to design a website and user-flow experience that would accurately reflect the organization's goals and mission. To that end, our team designed and implemented a custom donation gateway for public support while preparing the site for hosting inspiring content and responses directly from children in Haiti.
Sarge Sites believes in a three-tiered approach when we integrate deeply with our clients. We recognize that no business can thrive without a strong digital presence, but we also value balance in that digital ecosystem. Here's our perspective.
A successful website does three things: • It attracts the right kinds of visitors • It guides them to your main services or products • It collects contact details for an ongoing relationship with them
All three parts of our manifesto are founded on strong web performance. We believe that no single web-page representing a successful business will render more than two seconds after a user attempts to access it, and we aim for under one. For almost all businesses, the 'right kinds of visitors' are increasingly tech-aware and seek swift web experiences. It's not just us, either. Data currently shows that pages loading beyond that time expectation commonly experience a user loss rate over 30%. Not to mention, site performance has a significant impact on Search Engine Index scoring (SEO) and revenue.
Our team employs a first-class performance strategy on all new sites and offers conversion protocols for existing sites to ensure they meet the performance criteria for the modern web and the modern user. We run constant, stringent monitoring to ensure all our of partner sites are optimized and running at full speed 24/7/365, and we host all of our sites on their own unique, isolated cloud containers for optimized performance and layered security. None of our sites share servers. Ever.
In order to attract the right people and collect contact information for them, you need a strong marketing campaign that can prove its performance. Gone are the days that businesses could run general ads in the public space and expect sales. Businesses need calculated, thought-out, consistent marketing and user-specific digital campaigns to reach the audience they're looking for.
The Sarge Sites team specializes in leveraging site and traffic analytics data in conjunction with user- session flows to prove out and implement custom marketing campaigns for our clients. We excel in reaching repeat visitors and capitalizing on first-time interests while making sure to track interest origins to show impact over time.
A successful website guides visitors to the main services or products a business offers. While simple in phrasing, all too often we see 'modern' sites that are filled with advertisements, clutter, too many products, and distractions. It seems that the eCommerce industry has chosen to trade a positive user experience for one that hopes a user will purchase an item if they get (forcefully) shown a hundred.
We believe that a positive user experience lasts longer than a single sale. Sarge Sites takes a unique approach to design: we want to show the visitor what they came interested in, and nothing more. Our design principles don't revolve around visual frameworks and flashy colors, instead we focus on the fundamental user experience. This experience encompasses far more than how a site looks - rather, it begins when the visitor first sees an image of the product or hears the organization's name. From that point forward, we aim to make the first impression the best impression.
