KLK Web Services was started by Ken Kramer in 2013, Ken began to play around with web design to help out a local band who he knows all the members and they wanted an online presence. As he learned more about web design, he started to help out other people he knew because working on “Real-World” sites is more challenging than trying to come up with your own ideas on what to learn.
Ken started out by developing websites in Microsoft FrontPage and then played around with sites using Adobe Dreamweaver. He knew there had to be an easier/better way to develop websites, and then he found out about WordPress and has never looked back!
In the summer of 2014, a friend was purchasing an existing business and notified Ken that a website would be needed and would he be willing/available to help build it? Ken agreed and began to do some additional research on a solution to meet the clients needs. Ken found out about the “Genesis Framework” for WordPress, which had a 3rd party theme specific to the type of business being opened, so he began to develop his first client site!
