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! We can add the full brand development + design package for an additional $500 (typically $1,200 before the bundle discount is applied).
This includes brand strategy sessions, Pinterest board collaboration, color selection, moodboard development, premium font selection, and logo design (plus alternate logos and submarks). All of this will take place prior to your website design and will add an additional 2-3 weeks to your turnaround time.
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 business growth.
If you are not ready for this complete package and don't yet have a brand or logo, I would recommend starting with my brand + website building bootcamp, BEYOND THE TEMPLATE.
+ How does payment work?
You can either pay 100% of the total package prior to the project start date and receive a discount, or you can select the payment plan. If you opt for the payment plan, you will make a 10% deposit upon securing your start date. 40% is due 24 hours before the project start date. The remaining 40% will be due upon completion of your website prior to ownership transfer. All payments will be made online through Stripe.
+ What is the turnaround time?
The typical turnaround time for the entire project is 2-4 weeks, with a live website in 2 weeks. In some cases I may be able to do a rush job (meaning the website is live within 7-10 days), for an additional fee. Please contact me and let's discuss if I am able to meet your exact deadline prior to booking.
+ Do I need to purchase my own domain?
Yes, you will need to provide your own domain. If you purchase the annual Squarespace plan, you will receive a free domain name through Squarespace. If you already own a domain, I can help you connect it to your new site.
+ What do I need to provide you with before we get started?
I will need all of your website copy and images before we begin your project. Creating copy and choosing images are very time consuming tasks that if not done prior to your start date will delay the completion date. If you need help with copywriting and choosing branded images, please let me know upon booking your package so we can talk about adding these services for an additional fee.
+ I'm ready to get started! What is your next start date?
I am typically booked a few 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 reach out to me for 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 payment and signing your contract.
- 1-2 weeks prior to your project start date, I will provide you with a dropbox folder that you will be able to upload all website copy files and image files into. This must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start date.
