Consult For The Web, LLC is owned and operated by Brian Ristola.
Having begun work in web design in the late 90’s, Brian started in the way many people in the industry do – creating sites for friends and family. Having gained experience in computer graphic arts and technology in his bachelor’s degree work in the early 90’s, he began offering web design commercially. This included HTML, design and flash work with a variety of New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, and Vermont clients – engineering firms, artists, motels, craftsmen, B&Bs, manufacturing companies, as well as others.
In 2003, Brian founded an eCommerce site focused on electronics for musical instruments. Putting to work operational systems, inventory, eCommerce management and search engine strategies that he created/learned/refined over the years, he built the business to be the leading retail source in it’s industry, – with #1 listings in Google for many products, outranking even the manufacturers of the products.
After selling the eCommerce business in 2010 and taking a mini-retirement of sorts, Brian now brings this knowledge and skill to others. Brian works to help them gain visibility on the web, reach new customers/clients and achieve their business goals and dreams, using the strategies, tactics, and methodology that helped to grow his own business.
Brian is an avid long distance hiker, and also enjoys playing electric bass and guitar, cycling, reading, travelling, learning languages and growing big beards.
