Website Design

These days building a business website or online presence for your company is more important than ever, and I can help you! 

Your website is the digital face of your brand – and in 2021 that's pretty important. You may have seen commercials or ads for all of the different "Do It Yourself" website building platforms, but when you try your hand at it, it can be overwhelming. Maybe you’re just getting started or maybe you already have a website that you would like to refresh and rebrand, I can help you get to where you want to be. I utilize the Wix website building platform to design you a beautiful but easy to use website. The platform is user friendly and easily accessible, even for the most novice of beginners. Wix offers different packages that I will customize to your business' needs, and will allow you to easily manage your website on your own once it's set up, and will help you grow your business.

The Process

I will chat with you virtually to discuss in depth your needs and preferences. I'll ask for examples of work you like, what kind of needs your business has, and what you are trying to achieve. From there we will put together a quote for you to understand the full cost from start to finish. Wix offers several different hosting and domain packages and I will suggest the one that best suits your business and website needs. You'll get a chance to review and approve the design and provide feedback before we launch live! (2).png

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept payment plans?

Yes. I ask for a deposit to begin the design of your website or logo/branding. The remainder is owed before your website goes live or before files are provided.

What do I need to provide?

In the initial design phase, we will have a discussion to highlight all of the specific needs for your site and the elements that you want included. You can expect to address the following -Registering for domain and hosting plan via the Wix website -Providing a few samples of sites that you love, so I can get a sense of your preferences. -Writing the text for your site if you plan to do it yourself. I can provide copywriting services for a minimum starting fee of $250 depending on the amount of text/copy/pages required -Providing any photos that you may want to include.

Will I be able to edit my site myself?

Absolutely! Your site will have a user friendly dashboard that will allow you to access every detail of your website and make the changes you need.

I already have a logo, can you use it?

Absolutely! If you’ve already had your logo and brand designed, I am happy to include it in the design of your new website. All I need is for you to provide the logo files, brand colours and anything else we need to make your brand consistent with your other materials.

Who owns my website?

I ensure that your domain and hosting service is registered in your name using your contact information. This gives you full control and ownership of where your site resides. I also create special user access for your site that gives you full administrator rights and full control over the design and function.

Is the cost of photography/media inlcuded?

No, it’s not. I am happy to work with any photos that you provide and custom photography is also an option (additional costs will incur, references can be provided). The most popular option is stock photography. I source free stock images and videos during the design process and present them to you within your layouts. You then have the option to change them and have the option to purchase stock photos/videos as well. Once the design is finalized and you love all the images/videos used, if you have chosen stock photos/videos that incur a fee, I make the final purchase on your behalf and add the cost to your final invoice. Stock photography/media ranges from $0.00 to $30.00 per shot. On average, I use between 5 to 10 stock images on a website.

Will you write my text for me?

Yes, I can. There will be an additional cost for copy writing or editing. A quote will be provided based on your needs. I am always happy to have you provide your own text if you wish to avoid the additional costs. It’s completely up to you.

What software will be used?

I build your microsite on the platform, which is incredibily user friendly, easy to navigate, and offers an entire suite of built in business functions.

Can we use Squarespace, Shopify, or Wordpress?

For our sites we prefer to utilize the platform as we find it the most robust and user friendly, however if you'd prefer to utilize a different platform we can discuss your options and provide quoting.

How will you support me?

During the design of your microsite I offer guidance, tips and recommendations. We’ll work together crafting a design that showcases your business and allows for your brand story to reach your customers. After the site launches, should you require further support or maintenance I have monthly maintenance support packages that I can quote you.
