Are you a small business owner, start-up or creative entrepreneur who needs a standout and functional web presence? Do you have products or services that you want to sell or promote online? Perhaps you just need a website that tells the world who you are and engages your visitors? Yes? Then let's talk.
LESS IS MORE
Designing beautiful and effective websites
is one of my favorite things to do!
Making it a long, drawn-out process and costing thousands of dollars is not my M.O., nor is it helpful. I feel strongly about offering a service that is accessible to most people. Many design firms charge big bucks for a website, justifying it by providing the ‘full monty’ and having multiple staff working on your behalf. For most small businesses or entrepreneurs this is not an option - most just want an attractive site that describes their services, and perhaps a blog or news page. Even an online shop doesn’t have to be costly if you use the right kind of platform and prepare materials ahead of time.
WHAT YOU GET
Three components that make or break a website:
Style + Functionality + Ease of Use
I am passionate about creating attractive websites with good flow and intuitive navigation. My designs are modern and uncluttered, with room to breathe, definitely not flashy! One of the things that will make your life a lot easier and your site simpler to manage is the hosted web service that Squarespace provides. I work exclusively with Squarespace now because they offer a very intuitive system and unlike with a self-hosted Wordpress site, they take care of all the back-end stuff. Having used both platforms for several years I am also a big fan of the latter's cleaner, more stylish, and user-friendly websites.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU AND YOUR WEBSITE
- Because I am a Squarespace Circle member every website that I design for clients is eligible for a 20% discount on the first annual payment.
- Another benefit of my Circle membership is that I get a six-months trial period so you don’t have to pay for website hosting until we are ready to launch it.
- A selection of many beautiful templates. And if you just can't decide, then I am happy to choose something suitable for you.
- All templates come with built-in responsive designs so your website will always look great on any mobile device and be favored in Google searches.
- Squarespace automatically backs up your site and if you ever delete a page by mistake you can easily retrieve it again from within the admin area.
- You never have to worry about potentially harmful plug-ins that break or slow down your website.
- Do you feel a little intimated by Search-Engine-Optimization (SEO) and unsure how to do this? Squarespace and I will take care of it.
- There is no need to ever perform a software update and once I hand the site over to you, you still have Squarespace's friendly and efficient 24/7 support.
- Once you take control of your site, you will love the user-friendly and intuitive admin area and how easy it is to update your blog and page content.
- And, of course, if you don't want to maintain your site yourself I offer ongoing support.
