Allow DSW to act as your guiding light through the intricate and often intimidating world of digital marketing, design and technology. We have over 20 years experience with a focus on consulting, web development and marketing online.

This unique skill set provides us with a “total picture vision” that allows us to act as a full service company, customizing the best solutions for your business and simplifying the entire process of any project, from start to finish.

We are not just a marketing and design firm. We are a business solution powerhouse that drastically reduces your risks when looking for the most qualified candidates for your project. There are plenty of companies for hire that will use your budget to execute tasks without fully comprehending the most viable solution for your business. Many of them lack the vision and insight to foresee possible risks and challenges down the line. This means your investment might not be built on a solid foundation which is essential to ROI and longevity.


Branding is one of the most important aspects of any business. Your brand is the lasting impression from all that is heard, seen or experienced by customers who come into contact with your company and/or its products and services. It tells them what they can expect, and differentiates your offerings from your competitors’. If your company has grown and evolved over time, your brand may need a makeover so it more accurately reflects your business, products or services. 


Your website is usually your first impression on potential customers. According to statistics, you have just a few seconds to earn the end-user’s trust or  – “CLICK” – they’re gone, never to return. Not only must your website be aesthetically pleasing, it must also present an intuitive and user-friendly experience to avoid frustration which, statistics also show, result in causing your potential customers to click away. If not developed properly, your website will cost you revenue versus help generate it. 


In addition to branding and design we offer small business consulting services, content generation, CRM/CMS setup and integration, marketing automation, infographic design, digitization, print marketing and more. If it involves developing, marketing and promoting your brand – we can help. We also offer Google Adwords, Search Engine Optimization and Social Media Marketing services.

We’ll take care of the tedious details and do the heavy lifting, leaving you to worry about whatever it is that requires your attention daily. Due to our wide range of skills and experience, we eliminate the need for you to hire 5 or more companies to handle the many facets that can be involved in a complex project. We are a full service agency which means you only need to have 1 point of contact; 1 company fully vested in all of the details of your project with the big picture in mind. Not only does this save you time and money, it eliminates the need to communicate with multiple vendors.

Hackers are one of DSW’s least favorite group of people. Without proper security and monitoring in place, hackers will look for loopholes that allow them access and use up valuable server resources.

If any other type of hack is detected we are notified immediately to address the issue and reduce risk. We will keep your site safe at all times.


With software and technologies ever evolving, web site maintenance and software updates will be mandatory, at a minimal  monthly basis. You should always ensure you have regular backups of your web site. Even with a solid foundation and the proper equipment and protocols in place, we rely heavily on technology but know it’s not always reliable. Safeguard your investment with proper maintenance and back ups.

The Lowdown…


    “Debra is an awesome human who over delivers. I was unhappy with my website prior to Dog Star’s redesign because it did not convey the level of professionalism I wanted. Debra provided me with an extensive branding questionnaire that helped me with the vision I had for my business and personal brand. We worked closely together to achieve the right look and feel as well as deliver the right messages via the website content. I now feel confident referring other professionals to my website and am always receiving complements! It’s changed my business. I highly recommend Dog Star Web Solutions if you’re looking for a company that is thorough and thoughtful with every detail.”

    MARILEE TANGEN, Owner/Founder, Legacy Music Foundation
  • “The fear in searching for the right fit, when bringing a new group into our business, was overwhelming. How can they possibly identify or understand our business? NO ONE CAN COMPREHEND WHAT NEEDS DONE UNLESS THEY ARE IN OUR BUSINESS!! These are the thoughts I had while trying to select someone to help with our new website and keep things user friendly. I have been proven wrong. Debra and her team pulled the ideas from my mind and made them a reality. Dog Star has put together something better than I could have ever imagined. I believe the website will set a new “bar” in our industry and will be a beacon, for all other developers, to seek guidance from. It was not just ideas I needed. I needed to make this come together in a very short “off season” time frame. Dog Star separated the tasks that needed to be done, kept workloads organized, and showed us multiple ideas on how to achieve our look. Debra pushed me when I needed to be and took over workload when I did not have the time. Dog Star will always be part of OUR TEAM. Thank You Dog Star!!!!”

  • “Our website and social media platforms were not portraying the offerings and image we wanted. We had evolved into a larger and more complex company with increased offerings. We needed a marketing firm that would take concrete steps with smart digital and web solutions, solving our brand and image challenges at once. After interviewing many media groups, we were introduced to Dog Star Web Solutions through a referral. Since then, we have developed the type of inter-personal relationship with Dog Star, where they work side by side with us, always delivering a message and product which resonates with our various demographic groups. A real partner providing results towards the ongoing success of our business.”

  • “Deb is a tireless professional who is not only a perfectionist but someone who will truly go above and beyond for you. I went to being the first search result in Google when tattooing was searched in my state, and my site hasn’t moved from the first three positions in over 3 years. I went from roughly 30 hits per month to nearly 2000 per month, the results have spoken for themselves.”

    Brando, Tattoo Artist
  • “I want to thank you on a job well done with my site. I can honestly say I’ve never worked with someone as thorough as you, who was able to draw out the information needed in order to give me a site that represents the professionalism I envisioned. I love my site and my clients are expressing how great it looks. I cannot thank you enough.”

    Elizabeth Trevino, Owner – Skin Frenzy
  • “I can’t say enough about the level of satisfaction I have from working with Debra. She was great to work with – prompt, professional, creative, honest and thorough. I couldn’t be happier about the site she built for the business and feel it reflects our concept and properties in the way I had hoped and beyond!!”

    Mindy Miller, Co-Founder – Telluride Condo Rental Management
  • “Debra has a wealth of knowledge and experience in so many areas that help our business. Combine that with her work ethic and it’s no surprise why I would not rely on anyone else. She goes above and beyond with every task she takes on. The result is always better than expected. It’s that simple.”

  • “Debra was very easy to work with and brought some really good ideas and interpretations of what we were looking for in our new website. She was punctual, listened to what we had to say and had vast knowledge of current trends and what type of site we wanted to create and project to potential clients. I would recommended Debra and her team to anyone who is looking for a functional website and some out of the box ideas that can separate your site from the rest!”

    Drew Nelson, Owner/Designer, EEC
  • “I had wanted to make substantial architectural changes to our corporate website for a long time but had delayed repeatedly because of worry about picking the right web designer. An associate who had worked with Debra Ferguson gave me some glowing feedback about work she and Dog Star had done for him, and that prompted me finally to take the plunge. Just as I had hoped, Debra and her team were extremely knowledgeable, sharp, and competent to diagnose and to make recommendations. They proved immediately to be “cutting edge” in grasp of current applications and solutions. The follow through was just as impressive, the pricing was very reasonable, and we received everything we had sought to achieve. It was great to have that kind of experience with such a major technical project, and I would not only recommend Dog Star to others, but will surely be using them again myself for future projects.”

    Jon W Brisby, Pastor – Church of God Eternal
  • “Working with Dog Star Web Solutions has been a delight. Debra and her team are nothing short of extraordinary.  Very professional and easy to work with. I had a loose plan about how I wanted my site to look and how it would function so there was a lot of room for creativity which Debra brought to the table by ten fold. I will definitely work with them in the future and I encourage anyone reading this to do the same.”

    Noah Shepherd, recording artist and music producer, Hado
  • “I just wanted to let you know how happy all of us at Jim Brown & Sons Roofing Co Inc. are with the consulting and web design services you have provided for us. Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level that far exceeds all other companies we have dealt with in the past.”

    Valorie Miller, VP – JBS Roofing
  • “She is professional and dedicated to creating the best possible website for your business. What makes her stand out from other web designers is that she honestly cares about helping to make you/your business successful. Her hard work and ability to go above and beyond to make your website the best it can possibly be is just one of her many strengths.”

    Corrie Zazzera, Owner – CZ Music
  • “I have had the pleasure of working with Debra for several years. She has been professional, insightful and decisive. She launched us into the 22nd century with her skillful knowledge of the inner workings of the web. I will continue to trust her ability and insight as I move forward with other business interests and endeavors.”

    Dr. Nicholas Meyer, DDS,DNM

Add in having a network to call on so you get a bigger team focused on your solution and you have Dog Star Web. Deb has been key to getting us through several situations and new product launches… add Dog Star Web to your team for peace of mind!”

    Jim Dryburgh, Owner, Balanced Worklife
  • “Debra and Dog Star Web Solutions helped our company with the redevelopment of our website and bringing it up to date. She set forth the priorities that we needed to develop, including color format, viable SEO text and worked closely with us to achieve these results. She listened to our concerns and was able to tap into her network to help us with the photography. She was not afraid to tell us what we needed to change…a refreshing and welcomed point of view. She is an expert in her field and we are extremely pleased with our website. Two weeks after our website was live we received a “viable” lead and turned it into a sale. Our B to B sales involve a clear customer profile and this sale was right on target. Debra currently manages our website on a monthly basis. We have peace of mind knowing that Debra has our best interests in mind. ”
