Need a modern website that WORKS for your business?
A good-looking website isn’t going to cut it for your business. You need one that is strategically designed to get results and looks good.
Here’s how your custom website will come to life:
- You’ll send me a note (below) to get the ball rolling. Then we’ll make it official once we know we’re a perfect fit. I’ll send over your proposal, contract, and invoice.
- Homework time. Don’t worry, it’s fun homework. There will be easy-to-fill-out online forms (no sign-ups or software required) that will get to the heart of your business goals and plans.
- You’ll get a wireframe to review. A wireframe is just a mockup of a website without any design elements so that we can decide on layout that will guide your visitors to where you want them. Send me feedback and I’ll revise it if necessary.
- You’ll get a style card to review. A style card is a picture with suggested fonts, colors (if you don’t already have branding done), image style sample and more. It’s a summary of the style that will be used on your site. You’ll review and give feedback.
- You’ll get an actual website to review. The wireframe and style card will come together and I’ll send you a designed homepage to review and provide feedback. Then we launch!
- I’ll meet you for a 30 minute coffee and Skype to go over any questions you have about your new site.
How much will your custom website cost?
Your custom business site will be $1,999 USD.
This price comes with 4 custom designed pages (for example: your home page, service page, blog post page, and about page).
Additional pages and advanced features like shopping and appointment booking are available as add-ons as well. Pricing is all up-front, and you’ll be able to pick your additions right on the proposal.
More revisions can be purchased–if scheduling allows–at my hourly rate. But they’ve never been needed yet!
We’ll aim to have your new website ready within two weeks of our start date.

How will we communicate?
Primarily Trello (if applicable), emails with video messages when needed, and Skype.
If a chat is necessary, a face-to-face Skype chat is much preferred to phone. Why?
It’s much more like being there in person with you, and we can share our screens as well, which makes it so much easier than a phone conversation to be sure we’re on the same page. It’s kinda hard to describe a website over the phone anyway, right?
Occasional Skype chats can be scheduled.
Email and Trello (if applicable) communication can be referenced while I am working on your project, which is why it is my preferred method of communication.
I favor video messages inside email and Trello for many things, and you are more than welcome to respond to me in video as well. I use and love the free tool Loom.
Will there be a contract?
You bet! I care about protecting BOTH of us. I sign it as well so you can be confident that I will do what I promise (and legally entitled to it).
I really want a professional website, but can’t afford custom yet. Can you still help?
YES! I couldn’t afford one either when I started my own blog over 10 years ago, so helping you is one of the main reasons I do what I do. My pre-made themes are professional quality (in look and code), and highly versatile so you can have a pro blog while building up to the income that will allow you to invest in a custom one.
My pre-made themes are currently getting makeovers for the major new WordPress update, so:

Can we divide up the payments?
Absolutely. For custom websites, the payments are automatically divided by 50%. Half due to secure your spot in my calendar (non refundable–to ensure we are both committed to the project), and 50% due before launch.
When will you work on my project?
You will receive a schedule of when I will be available to work on your project once we are officially working together. The entire process usually takes 2 to 3 weeks or less (that is the goal!). So prompt and succinct communication will keep us moving along.
I do take on more than one project at a time, and also have to set aside time for the less-fun tasks that come with running a business, so I won’t be available 100% of the time during business hours.
I do check my email twice a day, and Trello (if we’re using it) as needed while actually carrying out the work on our project.
