How it works

Focus on your business. Let me worry about your website.

Get in touch

Get in touch with me to discuss the subscription option that best suits your needs.

Step 1
Design

Send me the text content for your new website, and I will design wireframes and mockups for you to review and provide comments. I can also help edit and organize the content.

Step 2
Build

Once the design is finalized, I will build your website using a full-featured professional web development platform, and write custom code if needed.

Step 3
Payment

Your first month subscription fee is charged only when your new site goes live.

Step 4
Support

I will manage and maintain your website so you can focus on running your business. Think of me as your part-time IT guy.

Step 5
Update

Make content updates yourself using a simple editor, and depending on your subscription plan, I can also make more advanced updates for you and even build new pages.

Step 6
Features

Why working with me will be a joy.

$0

upfront fees

World-class tailor-made websites can cost anywhere between $5,000 and $30,000+ to design and build. You can get the same results from me by paying a low monthly subscription instead.

4

weeks to design and build

Most large web development agencies take 3-5 months to code a website using WordPress, a flexible but outdated tool. You can expect a finished project from me within 2-4 weeks using a more modern and equally flexible tool. The finished product will look just as incredible.

5

custom hand-drawn illustrations

An artist will be commissioned to draw up to 5 unique illustrations to place in your website at no additional cost if you choose the Unlimited Plan. You may also provide me with your own images.

+

power-ups

Third-party power-ups can be added to your website for a small additional fee. Available power-ups include scheduling, membership management, eCommerce, and payment processing tools.

WOW

designed to impress

Clean and simple, yet bold and engaging design tailored to your brand, with impressive interactions and animations that will WOW your customers.

Reviews

Not to brag, but all of my clients love me.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need a website if I already have a Facebook page or Instagram profile?

Have you ever tried looking up a restaurant menu on your phone, only to find a picture of it on their Instagram? You probably didn't enjoy reading it.

Facebook pages and Instagram profiles can be great platforms to boost your online presence -- in addition to a website. Each social media platform has specific use cases: Facebook pages are great for making announcements, while Instagram profiles are great for sharing photos of your business. Neither, however, are great for presenting large amounts of information in an easily readable format, which is important when you are trying to sell a product or service. That's where a marketing website comes in.

Besides, an official website makes your business look more professional and trustworthy. Stop posting pictures of your flyer on Instagram!

Why don't you use WordPress?

While WordPress powers over 40% of the entire Web, it is an outdated and time-consuming web development platform. Even simple tasks such as updating your plug-ins may cause your website to break. While many large agencies are stuck with WordPress for various reasons, nimble and flexible independent web professionals are increasingly making the switch to other modern professional platforms for quicker development and easier management.

The most important benefit of a modern professional platform is that it allows custom coding for design flexibility. You can create any website design you can imagine!

Can't I just build my own website using amateur platforms?

You are certainly welcome to try! There are several fabulous web design platforms out there that are suited for amateur designers. However, they are never as simple as one would expect.

Building a website is tedious and time-consuming regardless of the platform you choose, and all require a certain level of confidence with technology and knowledge of the building blocks of a website. Most importantly, most amateur platforms do not allow for much flexibility in design, and do not allow you to write custom code.

If you want to WOW your customers, a professional platform is the way to go!

What payment methods do you accept?

When your website is ready to launch, I will send you a secure link to enter your credit card information. The card will be automatically charged a monthly recurring fee throughout your subscription period.

Does "unlimited" really mean unlimited?

Well, within reason. For the most part, yes. Most of my clients choose this subscription option, and all have been satisfied so far!

I would like to create a website featuring memberships/gated content. Can you help me?

Yes! I can help you set up membership management power-ups and connect them to your site for an additional fee. This includes designing account creation and login pages, etc.

I would like to set up an eCommerce site/online store. Can you help me?

Yes! I can help you set up inventory management and payment processing power-ups and connect them to your site for an additional fee.

What happens to my website if I cancel my subscription?

As with all subscription services, cancelation of your subscription will cause you to lose access to your website at the end of your final payment period.
