~ WHAT TYPES OF CLIENTS DO YOU WORK WITH?
I specialize in winery websites and craft brewery websites. I also design websites for small businesses and creatives.
~ DO YOU WORK WITH ANY OTHER WEBSITE PLATFORMS OTHER THAN SQUARESPACE?
Not at the moment. For a look at why I prefer using this platform and why I suggest it for each of my clients, please visit this post.
~WHAT EXACTLY IS INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE?
Please refer to my Web Design Package page here.
~ WHAT DESIGN DATE SHOULD I CHOOSE?
A design without content will make your website look unprofessional.
If you have photos and text content prepared (say, on a current website) choose the next available design date.
If you need to write your text content and take photos, choose a start date one (1) month out.
If you'll be hiring others to write your text and take photos, choose a start date two plus (2+) months out. Speak with your photographer and copywriter to get a firm estimate of how long the project(s) will take them and book accordingly.
These suggestions work for most client's, however be sure to adjust according to how busy your schedule is.
~ CAN YOU LAUNCH MY SITE BY A CERTAIN DATE?
If there’s an available design date before your needed launch date, then yes! Your site will be ready!
~ HOW MANY PROJECTS DO YOU WORK ON AT A TIME?
I take on just 1 major project at a time. I also do minor work, mostly for past clients, (adding a new page to their site, designing business cards, etc.) at the same time as a major project. My major project is always my main focus for those 2 weeks.
~ DO YOU OUTSOURCE ANY OF YOUR WORK?
Outsource the building of your business’s online home to someone else? Nope. That’s not how I run my business. It’s just you and me.
~ IS SQUARESPACE RIGHT FOR ME?
Squarespace is perfect for those who value modern & clean design, and would like a website that won’t cause them technical nightmares.
I suggest Squarespace for entrepreneurs, creative professionals, small business owners, and bloggers. I would not suggest Squarespace if you run a large business, or an organization with complex website requirements (forums, very complex booking systems, online shops requiring individual client login accounts, etc.)
~ HOW MUCH DOES USING SQUARESPACE COST?
Most of my clients use the $12 or $18/month plan. Included in this is the cost of website hosting. You'll also need to purchase a domain name (roughly $10-$20/year).
~ CAN I KEEP MY CURRENT DOMAIN?
~ IF I BOOK TODAY, HOW MUCH DO I PAY?
You pay 50% of your package price; this saves your spot in the design calendar. Then on the last day of your two week design period, just before launch, you'll pay the 50% remainder.
~ WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I BOOK?
You'll receive an email with the studio's Welcome Package. It will walk you through preparing your content; you can get started right away if you'd like! I will also follow up by email with a contract to be signed. (You can sign it easily online). Once the deposit is paid, your preferred design date will be saved for you and become unavailable to others.
