Our Story

Founded in Richmond, Virginia, Balcony Visions LLC is a creative consulting agency specializing in full-stack web development solutions and simple digital marketing packages. We do work, and we solve problems that help all kinds of entities connect with the public to share their amazing message, service, or product.

Balcony Visions LLC was founded by Richmond City native Jerrard Smith, an alumnus of the Bloom Institute of Technology (formerly Lambda School). Following his graduation, Smith dived headfirst into the industry. Driven by a strong desire to affect change through technology, Smith began working right away with local businesses, public speakers, and nonprofit organizations.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, Balcony Visions LLC has continued to increase its reach and prosperity and that of its clients and partners. The mission of Balcony Visions is to serve entities that are willing to rise to the challenge in these unprecedented times and create true change.

Next, we synergize and strategize to plan the work. Finally, we work the plan to manifest your vision.

We do not talk about price at Balcony Visions LLC.

Full-stack web development combines both front-end and back-end technologies to create a web application or platform from the bottom up.

We can collaborate with your in-house team or work independently. We are familiar with collaborative technologies and ticketing tools such as Jira, Slack, Microsoft Teams (MS Teams), Trello, and more.

We are also familiar with Git versioning, Github, Azure Repos and Pipelines (DevOps), and NPM packages.

We provide front-end web development services for entities focused on creating a customer-facing (or employee-facing) interface, website, or web application. We can also transform your design files or ideas into functional prototypes and actual web applications. Our offerings include:

  • Azure Suite (Databases, Web Application Services, App Registrations, Active Directory (AD) integration, and DevOps)

We create fully branded, custom business tools for various entities, helping them replace costly SaaS (software as a service) subscriptions and scrap outdated, laborious processes that are often expensive in terms of time, effort, and money.

Some of the benefits of using proprietary tools are:

  • Have a fully branded software suite of your own.
  • Complete control of your customer’s data and your data (ultimate privacy and accountability).
  • Get rid of repetitive tasks that can be automated by machines.
  • Cut back work-hours and increase overall productivity.
  • Take advantage of AI and advances in technology that have simplified the science of data.
  • Replace tedious Microsoft Excel formulas and spreadsheets with computer programs that get the job done fast.
  • In-house software that we (or your own team) can maintain and scale.
  • Tailor-made features that purchased applications and subscriptions cannot provide.

We can build your proprietary business tools from ground zero, or we can collaborate closely with your in-house team to assist you in making your in-house software.

We provide services to entities that want to set up their domain name, web server, or hosting package for the first (or thousandth) time. We also handle cloud-based solutions, such as cloud servers to host proprietary tools or hold company data.

Are you looking for an alternative to Google Drive? Look no further! We can build you your very own NextCloud web server so that you can have complete control over your data and privacy. Other offerings include:

  • LEMP stack web server deployment
  • Digital Ocean and Linode virtual machine prep
  • Virtual machine / Virtual Private Server (VPS) / Dedicated Server setup (Digital Ocean, Linode, Azure) 
  • Domain and subdomain setup
  • NextCloud server setup
  • Domain and subdomain migrations
  • DNS & Hosting troubleshooting
  • Cloud Server troubleshooting
  • DNS & Hosting setup with your registrar/company of choice

Please be advised that we do not handle AWS (Amazon Web Services)!

We provide web design services using What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get platforms like Wix, Weebly, Shopify, WordPress, Elementor, and Squarespace. Offerings include:

  • Brand new designs
  • Re-designs & editing
  • Debugging & troubleshooting

We also pixel-perfect conversions of WYSIWYG sites to hard-coded sites that offer more customization for scaling entities and require more technical flexibility than these platforms can offer.

We provide simple marketing solutions to help you get your message, service, or product recognized by the public. We want to help you scale, share your story, raise sales, and make an impact.

  • Define your “Ideal Client”
  • Understand your “Target Audience”
  • Create a web presence using social media
  • Get your professional social media pages on and popping!
  • Take advantage of FaceBook & Instagram Ads
  • Get a professional company listing (Google My Business, Apple Places, Yelp, et cetera).

Since our specialization is in full-stack web development, you can expect our marketing packages to be straightforward. However, you can also expect them to be effective. We especially encourage entities that are not technically inclined, such as non-technical small businesses, young churches, and organizations operated by staff who are less in touch with modern-day tech, to consider using us. We want to put you on stilts so that you can get noticed or become more competitive.

We also provide creative design services as part of our simple marketing packages. Offerings include:

Graphics 
Iconic logos to make your entity and your story stand out, banners or full-scale designs for professional FaceBook and LinkedIn profiles, restaurant menus, business cards, and more.
