Website Design Services for You

Let’s build a better website that really works for your business.
Brush off the dust. It’s time to give your website a face lift.
Did you know that after your website loads, users form an opinion in .05 seconds? And if they don’t like what they see within the first 10 seconds, they’ll leave.

So if your website is outdated, off brand, or looks like a DIY disaster, then you’re likely losing clients as we speak.

It’s 2019, which means:

Your ideal customers are absolutely looking for you online.

Your digital footprint is almost always going to be your first impression.

Your website has the potential to be your most powerful employee. It can work for you 24/7, doing its job ’round the clock.

But if your website screams “I’ve been collecting dust for a decade,” or even worse if your future customers are Googling your business only to find no website at all…

You’re losing valuable customers before you can even say hello.

I can help.
I offer website design services for startups, small businesses, and bloggers who are tired of trying to DIY their website.
Whether you’re:

embarrased by your outdated website…

exhausted from endless hours of trying to DIY…

admittedly uninterested in tackling your website on your own…

It’s time.

Each project starts with a custom proposal so that I can provide your business with exactly what you need, and none of what you don’t.

Whitney was a pleasure to work with and truly took my vision and turned it into a reality.  She was very in tune with the style I was going for and captured the mood perfectly.

RECENT WORK

Ultimately it’s most important that your new website reflect your brand and resonate with your ideal customer.
But it’s also important for you and me to be equally excited about working together.

When choosing a designer for your project, it shouldn’t just be about the right price, the right platform, or a timeline that works for you. There’s usually a moment where you say: “YES! You’d get me.” You know, a certain je ne sais quoi that just makes this feel right. 

Generally speaking my style is modern and minimalist. I focus on function first, I like clean, consistent, cohesive designs, and I utlize a healthy amount of white space. But don’t get me wrong: I love a bold brand, and am not afraid to pack a little punch with color.

What’s included in each project

In addition to your custom website design, we always includes the following to ensure your new website is built on a rock solid foundation and sets you up for success.

Domain Purchase

You bring the business name or name idea, and I’ll do the research, availability check, and purchasing to secure your domain name.

Hosting Setup

I’ll choose the best hosting provider based on your business needs, setup a new hosting plan, and connect it to your new business URL.

Wordpress Install

WordPress is the world’s most popular CMS, and I work exclusively with this platform. I’ll install a fresh instance and complete your setup.

Responsive Design

A responsive, mobile friendly (and even mobile first) website is simply put a must have for any and all businesses or blogs.

Social Media Sharing

I’ll integrate your social media accounts, and make sure your viewers are encouraged to share your content via social sharing.

Email Integration

Have an email marketing strategy? I’ll include email opt-ins throughout your website design to help you grow your email list.

On Page SEO Tool

I’ll select, install, and setup the #1 WordPress SEO plugin to easily enable you to get more visitors to your site organically.

Site Security System

It’s critical to keep your website safe, long after launch. I’ll install and configure a security system to protect your website.

Automated Back ups

Maintaining routine website backups is an essential part of protecting your website. I’ll install and activate a routine backup process.

Frequently Asked Questions

Read these frequently asked questions to learn more what it’s like to design and build a custom website for your business.

HOW MUCH DOES A NEW WEBSITE COST?

Each project starts with a custom proposal, because truthfully, everyone’s needs are different and “set packages” haven’t worked well for me or my clients. Custom website projects with me typically range between $3,000-$6,000; some are done for much less, some are done for much more. In order to provide you with an accurate estimate, please contact me using the form below.

Do you offer payment plans and how do I pay?

A 50% project deposit it required upon signing. The remaining costs are paid in one or two installments, depending on the length of our project. Payment is accepted online, and is made very easy thanks to a program called Wave. If you prefer to write a check, that works for me as well.

HOW LONG WILL IT BE BEFORE MY SITE IS DONE?

Project duration is highly variable based on the website size and complexity. The timeframe also varies depending on the timeliness of communication, holidays, number of revision rounds, etc. That said, past projects have ranged from 4-12 weeks. But don’t worry, I’ll include an estimated timeframe in your custom proposal, so you’ll have a sense of timing well before we get started. Reach out today to get the conversation started.

What is my role in the process?

We’ll go over all of this in more detail at least a few times before getting started, but this is really, really important, so I’m glad you asked. It is your responsibility to provide all of your website’s content (copy + images) before the design kick off. Yes, this means you’ll have homework to do. Yes, you should expect to put a lot of thought into this. And yes, I’ll give you plenty of guidance and templates to help make it as easy as possible. But I repeat: all copy and all images must be finalized and delivered to me before we get started.

In addition to organizing your content in advance, you’ll be expected to provide thorough and thoughtful feedback at set points in time during our project.

The number of revisions, review meetings, and check ins will be outlined in your custom proposal. If you’re ready to learn more, complete the form below!

CAN YOU HELP ME WITH COPY AND IMAGES?

Absolutely! My website projects usually start with you (the client) being fully responsible for all content including copy and images. However, if you’d like to enlist me or another professional to help finetune your work, write from scratch, or source the perfect images, please let me know and I’ll be sure to include that in your custom proposal.

CAN WE USE WIX OR SQUARESPACE?

No. I build exclusively with WordPress, and highly, highly recommend it. If you’re set on Wix or Squarespace, send me a note and I’d be happy to refer to you to a few of my favorites!

What if I'm not happy with the final result?

I’ve not yet had an unhappy client, and fingers crossed, you won’t be my first. My process is highly collaborative, and you’re involved in each step along the way to ensure we’re heading in a direction that aligns with your business, your brand, and your vision.

What if something happens to my site after we're done working together?

A timeperiod of unlimited support post-launch is included in each website project so that I can be on call to help if anything comes up. After the post-launch support period has ended, you’ll be responsible for the maintenance, backup, and updates to your website.

Can you help me in the future?

Of course. Once we launch your website, and the post-launch support period has ended, you can always reach out if you’re looking for quick fixes, content updates, or help with maintenance and website security. You can hire me by the hour for quick fixes or short to do lists. Or, if you think you’ll be making frequent changes to your site, and wish to keep me on retainer for a few hours each month, we can arrange for that as well.

Additional Services

Looking for something else? I offer a variety of additional services related to website design, technical needs, ongoing support, and content management.

Technical Support

I offer support services for all WordPress websites, including website maintenance, bug fixes, style updates, design tweaks, content development, copyediting, blog formatting, and SEO… just to name a few. Purchase a monthly support plan to ensure the most timely turnaround, or pay by the hour as needs arise. Send me your to do list, or your wish list and voila. Let me do the tricky work.

$75 per hour (with a 2 hour minimum engagement)

& More

If there’s something you think I could help you with, all you need to do is ask. Examples of ad hoc and add-on services we’ve provided to past clients include domain and hosting setup, company email setup, Google Analytics configurations, Facebook pixels, social media strategy, content planning and editorial calendars, social media templates, blog post management and more.
