About the Owner and Team

John started his career as a sign business owner/operator in San Bernardino, California when he was just 19 years old. With a love for graphic design, technology and helping businesses improve their image; John was already armed with everything he’d need for the up and coming “World Wide Web”. To be a successful business owner in the fast growing/ever changing sign, printing and screen printing industry; John never said no, rather learning from each challenge increasing in knowledge and confidence. As his company grew in popularity so did the internet, so customers began asking about websites. Seeing the rapidly growing need for a business’s online presence, John began educating himself in html, php, and javascript to built his first website. After a few short years John sold his sign company to pursue his new passion of designing and building websites full time.

In 2007 Websites By Patriots opened it’s digital doors, with the desire to take the skills he honed in his successful sign company; and apply them to website creation. With his success came growing pains. John needed a way to have customers be able to edit their own websites, He worked with a developer to create CuBit; a easy to use Content Manager. This allowed John to take on additional clients while still maintaining a high level of design and support services.

As business continued to grow John hand selected support members that shared his passion for customer service. This diversity allowed him to increase the services that he could offer to his clients and ever growing business. As the internet continued to evolve, it prompted the need for a more powerful CMS to meet the ever-changing needs of the World Wide Web. Over an 18 month period he crafted a more powerful WordPress based system he named Teamero.

John finds great satisfaction in knowing he has empowered over 1000 small businesses to manage their own website without having to learn complicated programming or needing to pay a web designer for continued updates. The end result has been a flawless marriage of stunning graphics and website functionality all in a single website package. Pairing that with award winning levels of support, Search Engine Management and more; Websites By Patriots and truly become a picture of the American dream.

A Conservative Mindset

It’s not old fashioned values that makes a conservative business owner, but it sure seems like that is how we are labeled. Just owning a business and creating something with your own 2 hands, using your God given talents along with hard work and taking the financial risks of success; seem to set businesses apart in today’s marketplace as conservative. If that is what “ol’ fashioned is, then I suppose that’s what we are)

We’re not sure how big a company needs to get before you become liberal minded, but I suppose we haven’t reached it yet. However, it doesn’t take a genius (which we definitely are NOT) to see how liberal policies of high taxation and regulation destroy the backbone of America, the small business owner. It is this mindset that has carried this company for so many years to support small businesses achieve big business success with a small business budget.

Christian Owned and Operated

If we needed to put a label on this business I would have to say that we are a Christian Owned and Operated Website Development Service. What exactly does that mean? It means that we are dedicated to serving and honoring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, as a result; we are accountable to a higher authority. One that holds us to a higher level of standards. We believe in the following principals and we expect you to hold us to them.

Honesty – At whatever the cost, we choose not to lie or even stretch the truth because we know that God cannot work in us or even through us if we insert a lie into the situation. And in order to achieve the impossible (as we are often asked to achieve) we need His guidance, energy, direction, inspiration, and yes, even His blessing in order to design at our best.

Integrity – When we say we’re going to do something, we mean it. We will do everything in our power to make that happen. Our Word means more to us than the dollar because we know that our financial needs are met by God who calls us to focus on His plan for our lives and the needs of the people he brings into our lives (You, our clients).

Diligence – The Bible talks about doing your work as though you’re working directly for God and we take that statement very seriously. We are truly working for you, for us and for our future but most importantly, we have a boss in heaven that we are trying to please. Sometimes it takes more than the 8 hours in a regular business day because the job we’re working on just takes more time. We don’t give up, we make it happen even if it takes some extra effort, extra coffee, and extra time.
