+ I'm ready! What's next?
There are just a couple steps before we can dive in.
- Let's connect over virtual tea to get to know each other, and to see if our aesthetic vibes are aligned.
- If all is feeling good, I'll send along a contract and an invoice for your 30% deposit. After that, your spot will be in my calendar. No one else can book during that time, it'll be just you and me.
+ What do I need to begin?
You'll need to have all of your written content and imagery three days prior to our web design begin date. Don't worry! We'll kick-off the project with an initial 1:1 session to create clarity surrounding your vision. Plus, I'll send along a snail-mail package with a Branding workbook, as well as offer a plethora of online resources to support you — a content workbook, stock imagery sources, exercises, and more. If you need help finding the right imagery, just ask, I'm here to help!
+ How much time do I need?
You'll need to designate a good chunk of time before we begin work together! I'd suggest:
- 2-4 hours for creating an inspiration board in Pinterest, completing questions in the Clarity Workbook, and getting images organized.
- 10+ hours for writing your content, and if you're taking photographs with a professional.
Meaning, it's great to get started a full month before our start date. This will give you plenty of time to get organized and ready! Then, once we begin the design process, you'll only need to be available for our weekly revision sessions, and a training session at the end.
+ What does our process look like?
Personal, intentional, and heart-felt. I only take one client on at a time as to give you tons of attention. We'll begin by gaining clarity, clearing energetic blocks, and diving in to create your sacred online space. Each page of your website is thoughtfully created with crafted elements to highlight your style — and tell your story. In the process, we'll go deep to create a beautiful reflection of the work that you're doing.
+ Why do you use Squarespace?
Though I have designed in other platforms (Wordpress, etc.), I've strategically chosen to use Squarespace for a couple big reasons. The first being I firmly believe in giving my clients the tools and training needed to manage the website themselves after the project is complete. Since Squarespace is easily customizable - once your site is built, you can work within the framework to change and customize anything you want without hiring a developer or needing to learn custom code. This means adding or editing pages, updating imagery, etc. Of course, I'm always happy to provide continued support, but I believe that should be a choice and not a necessity.
Also, with Squarespace, everything is integrated, so you don't have to worry about the continual upkeep of your website. No need to worry about updating various plug-ins or security! (Unlike Wordpress.) All in all, it's a gorgeous platform that I adore using to create one-of- websites for clients.
+ How much does Squarespace cost?
Clients often use the personal or business plan at $12 or $18/month. Both plans include the cost of website hosting. You'll also need to purchase a domain name at around $20/year. Already have a domain? We can transfer your excisting domain over to your new website.
