What are the best bang-for-the-buck web marketing, e-commerce, e-learning tools. Word of warning, it starts with WordPress.
I started the Media Kitchen, a web design, development and Internet marketing firm about 15+ years ago. I have created award winning work for IBM, Intel, Pennington Grass Seed and How Stuff Works, to name a few. I have also worked with The Weather Channel and Cartoon Network on several fun marketing projects. One of my many awards includes a Webby for work with The Boys & Girls Clubs of America national headquarters.
I began as a UI/UX architect, and designer, but quickly gravitated to development.
Some notable projects include:
Designed and developed a Groupon clone using WordPress, several premium plug-ins, and custom coding.
Using custom PHP and client side code, this product selector helps Temprite customers select the correct component for a multitude of cooling and refrigeration applications.

I am also in the process of building this selector as a hybrid mobile app for iOS and Android.
