Arachne Productions - FionaFiona Ostermayer – With an Ed.M from Harvard University, Fiona began her working life as a teacher. In the early days when schools were just beginning to bring computers into classrooms, Fiona discovered that she had a gift for technology. As the Internet grew, more and more friends were asking for help with web sites and Arachne Productions was born. Fiona teamed up with Ellen three years ago after they met in an online web business course and they began building their own web sites together for profit. In recent years they have branched out to share their knowledge with others after it became apparent that there were simply not enough web designers who could combine design skills with business acumen. One of the great strengths of the Fiona/Ellen team is that their skills and specialties combined make a very powerful set of talents.

Fiona’s specialties include:

  • Web design and development
  • Keyword analysis and research
  • Graphics and banners
  • HTML and CSS coding (Certified)
  • Search Engine Optimization

Arachneproductions - EllenEllen Schmidt – Dr Ellen Schmidt is a practicing veterinarian and webmaster who is fascinated by the internet as a medium for modern communication, collaboration and valuable information. She began to develop her own web site offering advice for the care and treatment of pets. Its great success encouraged her and she began to take courses in online marketing. It was in one of these courses she met Fiona and they realized that their combined skills were very powerful. Together they built a number of web sites for profit, all of which were successful. It soon became clear that they needed to branch out and begin offering their talents to others who did not have their training and experience. The success of the Fiona/Ellen team lies in the fact that their talents are perfect compliments and they can therefore provide a much greater range of services.

Ellen’s specialties include:
