Feeling completely information overwhelmed and not even knowing where to start
Trying to be clear about what you do, and making your 5th silly client avatar, while saying to yourself “what the heck is an avatar?”
Happy Looks Like
Sitting back knowing someone else is working hard doing what they’re best at
Being part of a collaborative process where your why is understood and shines through your final design
Getting to chill with family and friends at night because you finally stopped trying to do it all yourself
Learning how to propel your business forward without the feeling of needing to do everything yourself
Finally confident that the right people are being reached through your site, and they’re enjoying their experience
Running a business is stressful enough.
Website off your to-do list.

Questions About Custom Websites
What if I don't have my website text and pictures ready yet?
We do need these things to get started. The first step in working with us is a chat and some prep-work, so you'll have a good head start on your wording by working through this at the beginning of the process. It doesn’t have to be etched in stone, but you do need it before we begin the design phase. If you need help with copywriting or stock photo sourcing we can point you to some good free resources for that, or you can choose our ‘copywriting assistance’ or ‘stock photography sourcing’ as an add-on to your package.
I have an old website, how do I switch to a new one?
I'm here to help guide you through the process. I design your site with a trial setup through Squarespace or another platform, which is totally separate from your current site. You will keep your old site up and running until we are ready to make the switch. When it’s switch time we’ll need a few days for a “coming soon” page to be displayed.
How do we keep track of the project and to-do list?
We use Asana, It’s free, easy to use, and if you're new to it we’ve got a video that walks you through getting started. It will be like our digital home base, keeping all our discussions and to-dos in one organized and convenient place. It’s quick to check things off the to-do list.
How do I edit my website when it's all finished?
Once we launch your project you’ll be given recorded custom training sessions showing you the in's and out's of your exact site. In choosing a platform, we’ll talk about ease of use after launch. Squarespace is the super user-friendly option and I'm confident my clients can handle it after our time together. If you feel you’ll need ongoing maintenance, such as for a Wordpress site, we can chat about that as well.
How will my site look on mobile devices, Ipads etc.?
Mobile viewing is at about 50% or more for most of our clients so we take this bit very seriously. Every website we build is mobile responsive and will work beautifully on desktops, Ipads, cell phones and about any other device you can pull it up on. To make the process easiest, we typically design the desktop version first, and then tweak details within the mobile version so that your users get the same function and feel no matter their device.
How do I get started?
After you submit a contact form, we’ll schedule a quick chat (video or phone, whatever's easiest) to see if we’ll be a good fit for each other. If we decide it’s a go, we’ll send over an invoice for the deposit so you can officially claim your project dates. Your deposit is 25% when you book, 50% after mockup designs are approved and the last 25% is due before we launch. All of our payment details, as well as an easy to follow schedule will be sent to you upon booking.
Success Stories from Past Clients
“Jennifer was helpful and fun to work with. We’ve seen more website traffic, more inquiries, and more clientele since working with her on our website. She brings a different perspective to the table and it’s totally worth it. She’s the best!”
— Danielle Anthony
Ready Made Squarespace Templates
“I built my website myself, they said, you should too they said, it’ll be fun they said” hahahha NOT
You know this is not a weekend project, let’s face it, you tried once and put it on hold after 2 weeks and 3ish bottles of wine. Why fumble through designing an entire website yourself?
Easy to Use Squarespace Platform
Our website templates are designed and built on the beautifully simple, and easy to update Squarespace platform. If you haven’t heard of Squarespace, you’re in for a treat.
Is a template a good fit for your business?
Most Squarespace templates, kits, and DIY designs, are totally Do It Yourself and have an approach that goes something like this “You pay for a template, watch x # of hours of videos, change a bajillion settings, design graphics in an editing program, and build the entire site yourself”.
We’re all about some binge-watching over here, but not when it comes to putting together a website. Save that for tacos and Netflix night.
Our website templates are different. We build them For You, then teach you how to make small tweaks, so you don’t have to get an associates degree in web design just to get your homepage up.
Template Designs Include
5 or more fully designed pages
Shop Functionality on the backend of all sites
Calls to action throughout the site
Quick and Easy to understand Training Videos
Your Copy and Images Install (starting at $450) This service has it’s own process where we’ll work with you a lot more closely to finalize the content.
If you love the design but feel like you need more major changes (page changes, structural changes etc) we can chat about that as well. Quotes for major changes begin at $850
**note: any optional add-ons are in addition to the template price, and add additional days to our timeframe as well
