strategic website design + build

Your website is your business’s shop front – so it’s important to feel proud of how it represents your brand and the messages it sends to your dream audience.  There are no cookie-cutter solutions around here. You’ll get a custom-designed website, entirely unique to your business with design that captures attention, hearts – and leads! Because good design isn’t just about how it looks – but also how it works. Your website needs to take your audience on a journey, allowing them to connect and engage with your brand in a way that is memorable and authentic.

3 – 6 WEEK PROCESS

the process

Get in touch via the contact form. I’ll get back to you to arrange a time for your free phone consultation. During this call, we’ll chat about your business and growth goals.

You’ll then receive a proposal from me, outlining my recommendations for achieving those goals.

When you’re ready to go ahead, you’ll then receive an invoice for the deposit which secures your spot in my schedule.

Please note, larger projects are often booked 2-6 weeks in advance, which gives you time to complete some important strategic ‘homework’. This pre-work is essential to ensure I can capture exactly what you’re after!

frequently asked questions

Can you start my project now?

Sorry, chances are I can’t. I book up fairly quickly – anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks in advance – but do get in touch to check my availability and we can go from there.

Do you do package pricing or by the hour?

Package pricing helps me to laser focus on your goals and design a truly distinctive project without you or I worrying about the time being spent, or whether will there be additional charges. I do list the scope this covers in the proposal, so there are no surprises. For smaller projects outside of the original scope, I may price these hourly.

Why do you only present one logo/brand/website concept, why don’t I get several to choose from?

Great question! I have been doing this for a long time and what I have found is that if I put all my time and creative energy into coming up with one concept, it is THE best concept suited to your unique brand and business needs. Previously, I would spend additional time coming up with other concepts to present, when in most cases the clients would actually choose the first one that I recommended. For the past year I have been trialling this with much success and often little to no changes. I do build in some time for tweaks if needed and I 100% want you to leave me with a truly gorgeous website that you love. I have crafted a set of questions that helps me to understand you, your business and dream audience which sets me up for success here and enables me to craft the website with minimal revisions required. 

Will this be very time consuming for me (the client)?

I do require some homework from you, but no, it is not super time consuming. For the best success of the project though, I will need you to be as thorough as possible with my questionnaire. It will be super helpful for you to know your dream audience and business goals, but I will walk you through this process each step of the way so don’t worry if you are not sure about these things yet.

I’m nervous, I am not very tech savvy does that matter?

No problem at all, for clients I create a login portal where all our communication and files are stored to cut down on the overwhelm and make for a seamless process. I provide instructions on how to access this and it is as simple as logging into my website online. I will also provide you with a short video walking you through how to make edits to your website along with some very basic maintenance. I am also available for ongoing work should you require it. No question is a silly question though so please feel free to ask if you are unsure about anything.

What platform do you build websites on?

I currently work in WordPress for most websites. It is easily scalable and can facilitate and grow with your business. Note this is not WordPress hosted though, as that has certain limitations and I do not recommend using wordpress.com. For ecommerce I like to use Shopify as it is super user-friendly in the back end and has great inbuilt SEO to help your business grow and reach its target audience. This doesn’t mean I can’t tee up other platforms though, so let me know what you are thinking and we can go from there.

Why do websites cost so much to produce?

Your website is the home for your business online. With so many people turning to the internet to do their shopping / investigation / research into you, it’s necessary to take the time to craft and set this up correctly, so your website represents your business well on mobile, tablet and desktop. I want to design something distinctive for your dream audience and to walk them through your information in a way that connects them to your offer.

Do you write the copy and supply images for the website?

I don’t specialise in copywriting, I do provide you with an outline for what copy will be needed to give you a foundation for starting and I can definitely recommend someone if you are needing a hand. We can also discuss what images will be needed, often I can supply these at a reasonable rate or we can discuss a photography shoot if needed to really elevate your business.

Will I have to pay you ongoing fees for my website?

Nope, I like to give clients full ownership of their site – I won’t hold you hostage for a monthly ransom and charge you an arm and a leg to make changes. I give you the tools to make minor edits yourself. Your hosting will be set up with a company I recommend and their fees are minimal and this can be moved to another host provider at any time by you. The website is built in WordPress and I give you the passwords for everything, it is your website and you own it. I am here to help if you prefer though.
