bringing your vision to life
When it comes to a website for your brand, there's a good chance you don't know where to start, OR you've tried to create it yourself but became a bit overwhelmed.
Building a website is definitely a project that takes time and planning, but with a little help, the road from vision to reality can be extremely rewarding and exciting.
Working with me will not only give you more time to focus on building your business in other areas, but you can be sure your web design is in good hands from start to finish.
4. The design starts.
Once you fill out the inquiry form below, I’ll reach out within 48 hours to schedule a discovery call. On the call we will go over your brand vision, what content is needed, and I’ll answer any questions you may have.
2. Contract and deposit.
After our call, I’ll send you over a proposal which you can accept by paying the required 50% deposit and signing the design contract attached.
3. Gathering content.
I will send you an email from ‘ContentSnare’ that you will be required to complete. I’ll gather all the basic business info, your copy/text, pictures, product info and though this form. I will also invite you to Trello so you can keep updated with my progress, add notes, and collaborate with me as needed. This is optional, and only if you want a visual of where I’m with designing your project.
During the design process, I’ll be working to bring your vision to life! Once the foundation is complete for your website (i.e. once I have the template laid out, but still adding content and pages) I’ll send you a demo link where you can preview everything and provide me with feedback. This process can take 3-6 weeks to complete depending on the complexity of your project. I will provide you with an estimated finish time on our discovery time.
2. Approval and launch.
Once all your content is added and your website design is complete, I will have you do a final review and approve. After I’ve received your approval, you’ll pay your remaining balance, and I will work on making your website live! This includes connecting your domain which may take 48-72 hours. In the meantime, I’ll design a launch graphic for you to share on social media once it’s up and running.
6. Management call.
While your website is connecting to your domain, I will schedule a Zoom meeting with you which you’ll join using your laptop or tablet. On this call I will go over how to control different aspects of your website and/or managing your store.
1. Your first inquiry.
Frequently asked questions
What platforms do you design with?
Wix and Shopify only.
Which platform do you prefer to build with and why?
Wix! Wix is constantly updating their platform to compete with other eCommerce websites like Shopify. They offer many of the same features with less learning on your end and less apps to pay for. The design process is also more flexible, and I can likely design anything that comes to mind without coding or buying additional templates.
What sort of content will you need to start the website design?
Great question! I’ve created a downloadable checklist which you can find here. Some items you may not need, for example if you need a simple booking site and don’t sell products. You can download it by clicking here.
How much can I expect to invest on my branding package?
Your investment is dependent upon the needs of the brand but typically starts at $200.
Do you provide any content?
Unfortunately, I do not provide any photos or write any copy, but I’m happy to offer resources for things like images, where you can find free collateral for your project, just let me know during our call.
If I’m starting an online store, do I need a laptop?
The short answer is yes. There are some aspects of your website that you simply cannot manage with a phone or tablet. A laptop is almost required to effectively run your business.
Do you provide on-going maintenance
Unfortunately, I do not. But I do provide several a la carte items that you can choose from depending on your website updating needs.
I want to make changes to my brand’s website myself. Is that possible?
Yes! You will always have access to the back-end of your website if you want to make adjustments. I’m totally here to do it if you need me to, but will also coach you on how to make simple changes so you have more control over everything within the site.
How long does it take to build a website?
The overall process from start to finish once I have all your required content can take 3-6 weeks depending on the complexity of your project. I will provide you with an estimated finish time on our discovery time. If you’ve paid for your services to be expedited, I will provide you with an ETA during or after your coordination.
