Frequently asked questions:
+ What platform do you design websites on?
I design all of my websites on Squarespace. Read more here to find out why I love Squarespace so much!
+ How much does Squarespace cost?
You can find the current Squarespace hosting prices here. You can either pay annually and save or pay smaller amounts monthly. The Squarespace hosting fee includes everything you need... Squarespace customer support, security, etc. Plus, when you pay annually, this cost will also include a domain name and in some cases, one year of a custom email address is included as well.
When you work with me, you will also receive 20% off your first year of Squarespace! (when paid annually)
I highly recommend going with the Squarespace business plan as it unlocks multiple features that are extremely useful. Just reach out if you have any questions about this!
+ What if I don't have a brand and/or logo?
No problem! I develop full brands and would love to help you with this. I do offer a brand + website bundle, so just reach out and we can chat about what this will look like for your project.
I would caution against skipping this step and moving straight to the website design process if you don't already have a brand developed... knowing your brand is crucial to your website development and your business growth.
+ How does payment work?
We will set up a payment plan where you can pay part of the total before we begin, part of the total on the start date, and part of the total once the project has been completed.
I work based on a waitlist, so if your project start date is more than a few weeks out, then I will ask for a non-refundable 10% down payment to secure your start date in my schedule. It is a good idea to secure your date in my schedule - even if you're a few months from being ready! - because the slots do fill up quickly.
+ What is the turnaround time?
The typical turnaround time for the entire project is 3-6 weeks. And don't worry, once a deadline is set, I'll do everything in my power to meet that date (obviously, this is dependent on you meeting your deadlines as well). In some cases I may be able to do a rush job (meaning the website is live within 7-14 days), for an additional fee. Please contact me and let's discuss if I am able to meet your exact deadline.
+ Do I need to purchase my own domain?
If you do not have a domain and you would like to purchase an annual Squarespace plan, then you won't need to purchase a domain! It will be included in your annual Squarespace plan. However, if you already have a dommain you would like to bring with you, we can connect it to your new site.
+ What do I need to provide you with before we get started?
Ideally, I would love to see a draft of all of your website copy before we begin. But I 100% understand that it can be overwhelming to write copy without seeing where it will go! So, I will help you create your copy and walk with you through the copywriting stage to ensure that it fits the site nicely.
I would also like to have any images that you would like to use in your site before the start date as well. Again, I understand that you are hiring me to help with the aesthetics of your brand, so I will be happy to help you search for stock images that fit your website and brand for no additional charge.
Keep in mind, if your copy and images are not ready during the design process window (the first 2-4 weeks following the start date), then I may need to insert some filler text/images and show you how to swap out your own copy and images at a later date. (don't worry, it's super easy!)
+ I'm ready to get started! What is your next start date?
I am typically booked at least 2-4 weeks out, but sometimes an immediate opening is available. Contact me to find out the exact start date of your potential project.
+ What is your process and how do we get started?
First, you will book a free consultation to make sure we are a good fit (consultation typically lasts 15-20 minutes). Once you have decided on a package that is perfect for you, we will secure your spot in my schedule by making your initial payment and signing your contract.
At that point we can begin working through copy, collecting images for your site, and creating a brand (if needed).
Once the start date arrives, we will get down to business! This is where the fun begins. You'll get a live demo site to view the progress and give feedback throughout the entire process! I typically start by designing your home page. Once this page is approved, I will complete the rest of your site for you. Once the site is PERFECTION, you can launch and CELEBRATE.
Next, we will schedule traffic report sessions for two months following your launch date. This is included in your package price as a way to see how things are going! We will be able to tweak, test, and watch those conversion rates climb!
It's time to scale your online business.
