YOU NEED A WEBSITE THAT RELENTLESSLY IMPRESSES YOUR AUDIENCE AND BRINGS IN SALES—SO THAT YOU CAN FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT TO YOU.
I’m here to help you, from the big changes to the small fixes. I can create a whole new site or blog for you, customize and install a new theme for you, update a theme or style you already love, or just make a few changes to fix errors and swap out content on your website or blog.
When we work on a project together, I’m not there to just execute a strategy. I’m there to help and to cheer you on, from start to finish and beyond the project launch. Clients pre- and post-launch can seek me out for advice on their websites whenever they need to.
Website design begins with a 1-hour consult to go over your current website or websites you admire to discuss the design and functionality you’re looking for in your site. After the design meeting, we’ll set up a sales strategy session and incorporate those goals into the final design of your site.
Business Goals Review
Your website needs to be helping you achieve your business goals. You’ll fill out a short business goal worksheet, and we’ll meet for a 30-minute review session to brainstorm the ways your website can help you reach your business goals. Your business goals will be used alongside your design preferences to create the best possible website for you.
Sales Strategy Session and Marketing Tactics Review
Your website needs work relentlessly on bring in sales. You’ll fill out a short business goal worksheet, and we’ll meet for a 1-hour sales strategy session to brainstorm the ways your website and your current marketing tactics can help you bring in more sales. You’ll come away from the meeting with suggestions on how to up your marketing game after the new site launches. The finalized strategy will be used to dictate design elements of your website so that not only looks great, but works hard for you.
All content on your current or future site will be reviewed for usability and SEO. When we’re looking for usability, I’ll be asking the questions:
- What is the main purpose of this page? Does this align with the business goals?
- How easy is it to understand the main call to action?
- Is there anything too busy or potentially confusing to visitors?
- How is the uniformity? Does everything look like it belongs here?
- Can Google and other search engines easily understand and rank this page? (SEO)
The content review will be a recorded video review of your content that you can view at your leisure.
Alongside the content review is work done for SEO purposes. The content review will cover any content problems areas needed to be addressed for SEO purposes. The SEO planning will be done in the development stage, using plugins, tracking codes, and best SEO practices to make your website ready to rank.
When you’re working with me, you’re not just left in the dark. You’ll be learning along the way and have me available for questions during and after the process. I’ll be available for questions along the way up to 6 weeks after the launch. I’m here to make sure you’re confident in your ability to manage and maintain your website.
Website Setup/Theme Review
If you need just to get online, I’ll set up your website on WordPress or Squarespace, and help you select a theme or template that works best to match your goals. In this package, you’ll have unlimited access to my in-depth tutorials on these hosting platforms.
Custom/From Scratch Design
Are you wanting a theme coded from scratch, not a customization of a current theme on the market? Let’s design and build from scratch for your website needs. (Note: most websites are built off of existing themes. People who build from scratch are usually larger businesses with specific needs, such as Marie Forleo’s site.)
