Hi! My name is Ariela.

  • Location: Vermont

I’m a web designer and digital marketing consultant with 24 years of experience. I built my first website in 2000 and have been working in the industry ever since. Whether you have an established site – or are looking to build something new – I can help you attract more visitors, increase user engagement and build your audience.

Would you like to work together? In 2019 I started Swift Horse Marketing, which focuses exclusively on the digital marketing needs of bloggers. Please visit our website and reach out via our project inquiry form. Looking forward to hearing from you!

My Skill Set

One of the things I love most about web design & digital marketing is how the technology used in these industries is constantly changing. I strongly believe in having a growth mindset and am always on the lookout for new learning opportunities.

I enjoy creating unique website designs and compelling digital strategies, as well as spearheading highly targeted SEO campaigns. Increased traffic, engaged users and returning visitors are just some of the metrics I’ve been able to grow for my clients. On average they see growth of between 22%-56% year over year.

On The Side

In my spare time I enjoy using original photos, stock photography, textures and digital painting to create art. I also dabble a bit in photography when I get the chance.

When I’m not at my desk, I volunteer as a Cub Scouts den leader, love spending time in nature, and enjoy learning new outdoor skills. I’m also an avid gardener and enjoy horseback riding.

  • Working with Ari has been one of my favorite and most power-packed moves that I’ve made for my business. We’ve worked together on planning strategic content, SEO, getting major site changes made and it’s made all the difference. She’s extremely knowledgeable, easy to communicate with, and quick to brainstorm and offer suggestions. On top of all this, the site that she built me is well organized and so fast. I plan on working with her for as long as I can, it just makes sense.

  • I recently worked with Ari on a blog ‘tweak’. I had some *very specific* ideas that I wanted implemented and not only did she go above and beyond my expectations, she did it quickly and with much patience! I have worked with designers in the past and this was the most pleasant and effective experience I have ever had! Ari also took my ideas and added her creativity making the whole design so much better.

She keeps my site running efficiently and smoothly, and is extremely knowledgeable in her line of work. My site is in good hands and I truly couldn’t ask for better service.
