A custom website can make a big difference for your business
You’ve seen the stats. More and more people are shopping online and looking for solutions online every day. And businesses are also moving online to meet those needs. It’s quickly becoming a crowded space..
A custom website design can help you stand out from the crowd. You can show off your business in the best light possible. And you can easily turn it into an online store or add a blog section to the site. A custom website allows your dreams to run wild.
So let’s work together to give you the website of your dreams.
A design that matches your business
Your business is unique. So your website should be as unique as your business. During the discovery phase of the process, I’ll learn more about your business and your wants and needs for your website so that I can design a website that delivers on all your wants and needs and stands out from the crowd and grows your business. You’ll have an opportunity for your dreams to come true.
Today roughly a third of all websites use WordPress. It’s reliable, has great support and is easy to use for beginners. It’s a great platform to build a website on.
Digital Marketing Foundation
Websites are just one piece in the large puzzle that is digital marketing. But they are the biggest piece of the puzzle. With a new website, you’re going to get a great foundation to build your digital marketing strategy. Every other thing you do from social media marketing to email marketing to content marketing and online advertising will point back to this fabulous website.
If you sell products in your physical store, you’re probably going to want to sell your products online as well. And that’s no problem. We can tack on an online store to your new website that will also make it easy for you to manage your products.
Responsive Web Design
This should go without saying, but your new web design will be responsive. That means it will look good (and contain the same information) no matter if the user is browsing your site on a desktop, tablet or mobile device. You can reach them all.
In today’s digital age, everyone should be able to use your website no matter what technology they use. In addition to being the moral thing to do, it also broadens your customer base. So your website will be tested to make sure that it’s accessible before it’s launched.
Education & Training
There’s a lot to learn about when it comes to your website. And you won’t be left high and dry in your learning. In addition to the training session after your site is live, you’ll also have a plugin that shows you tutorials and helpful hints right in your dashboard.
Search Engine Optimization
Search engine optimization is paramount for every website today. While there’s a lot that goes into SEO, quality code is the first piece in that puzzle. So your website will be built with SEO in mind so that you have a great place to start your SEO efforts.
Security is extremely important in today’s online world. You not only want to keep your website up and running, but you want to protect your data and the data of your users. So your website will come protected by Wordfence so that your site will be as secure as possible.
How this will work
Everything starts with the free consultation call where we’ll learn more about each other, discuss the projects and figure out if we are a good fit for each other.
If we agree to work together, I’ll work on getting a contract drafted. Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of legal work. This will basically outline the timeline for the project, who will do what, how much this will cost and the payment structure.
Once the contract is signed, we’ll start to talk more about your website. We’ll get down to what you really want and need with this website so that I can build a solution that will accomplish your goals.
As we get more of a focused vision on what the website is going to look like, we’ll also start to focus on what content will be needed — from text and copy to images and maybe video.
When we’ve got the solution figured out, I’ll work on designing the website to meet that solution. I’ll take care to work in your branding, text, images and make sure that it provides a top-notch user experience.
When you’ve signed off on the design, I’ll get right to work developing and coding the website. It will use the best practices out there today to help with your website’s security, page speed, SEO and accessibility.
When the website has been developed and the content added in, you’ll have a chance to look through it and recommend changes before it goes live.
Finally, when we’re all ready to go, your website will go live. And you will only need to provide your web hosting and domain information. I’ll take care of the technical stuff.
Once the website is live, you’ll have a chance to sign up for a website care plan to get quality hosting, managed updates and more. But we can talk about that later.

Questions you might have
What is your rate?
My hourly rate is $65 per hour. Since the exact price you’ll pay is dependent on what your website needs to be, we can discuss the specifics about the price during the consultation.
What will be discussed during the consultation?
During the consultation we’ll get to know each other better. You’ll learn more about what I’ve done in the past and what I can bring to your project. And I’ll get to learn more about your business and what you want and need from this website.
Why use WordPress?
WordPress is used by roughly one third of websites on the internet. It has a great community backing, and it’s great for beginners. Plus I’ve been using it for well over 10 years now. And if you need any help, I can teach you the ropes.
Who will take care of the content?
Content creation for a new website can be a tricky task, and it can get forgotten about. Who will take care of the content part will just depend on whether you can create it or hire someone to or if you need me to. And we’ll come to an agreement before the end of the discovery phase.
How long will it take?
Without knowing your specific project, I would say no less than three months. Although it depends on what you want. If it’s just a simple website, it might take less time. More complex websites will take longer
How does payment work?
If we agree to work together, I will budget out the price of the website depending on the hours needed to get the job done. From there, the price will be split into three parts to be paid at different milestones along the way (after the design, after the development, etc.). The website must be paid in full before it is taken live.
