Endless customization options mean your website can be as unique as you are. You’ll also enjoy additional tech perks, like better control over your SEO (to help you rank in search results!).
Whether you have an existing site or are brand new to WordPress, I can help. I quickly create beautiful, powerful websites that help small businesses monetize, grow, and make a difference.
For site owners who want a solid website foundation that can grow over time. This package focuses on your homepage + four essential pages + three essential plugins.
This package starts with an existing WordPress theme that I customize, instead of me creating an entirely custom theme just for you. Think of it as buying floor plans and then making custom edits vs. having an architect create brand new blueprints from scratch. The theme provides the basic structure and then I customize the details. This saves me time, therefore costing you less.
Finally, I add your essential content and configure important “under the hood” settings for performance.
For site owners who want a turnkey website and jumpstart on SEO. This package focuses on your homepage + five essential pages + five essential plugins + SEO.
Just like the Plus option, this package also starts with an existing WordPress theme that I customize for you. I also add essential content and configure important “under the hood” settings for performance.
Finally, I ramp up your search engine power with an SEO boost by helping you optimize your initial site structure, content, and media with best practices that help you rank faster. Let’s show Google who you are!
For site owners who want a wow website and nearly endless customization options with a jumpstart on SEO too. This package focuses on your homepage + six custom pages + five essential plugins + premium plugins + SEO + extra touches.
This package is custom built exclusively for you. The options are endless and you aren’t stuck using existing “floor plans” for layout options. Want to tear down that wall? Move the stairs? Let’s do it. Then I add custom pages, configure “under the hood settings” for performance, and boost SEO.
Finally, your site is sprinkled with several extra touches to put it even further above the rest.
What makes your process unique?
You can do it yourself, but you don’t have to. Most new bloggers don’t have the time or skills to build a professional website. Stop stressing. Stop Googling. Stop trying to DIY your marketing. Let my years of experience help you get it right, right from the start.

How does it work?
The Design Process
Create your website Wishlist
After you’ve reserved your start date by checking out on my website, I will email you a vision sheet. This is where you’ll tell me what you like/don’t like about your current website and logo, if applicable. You’ll also send examples of websites/logos you love and let me know if you have any favorite colors, fonts, etc. Finally, you’ll start to define the types of information needed on your new site. I always have suggestions for you to consider on the vision sheet too. Consider this your first brainstorm to help get us on the same page.
Most clients spend about a week on this step.
Outline Your Website
After I look your vision sheet over, I’ll send several website layouts to consider that I think are a great fit for you based on your vision sheet and needs. If you’ve purchased a theme-based design with my Plus or Expanded packages, these options will be existing pre-made demos. You’ll select your favorite as a starting point and then I’ll customize it for a perfect fit.
If you’ve purchased a 100% custom Dynamic Package, we will skip the theme selection since I’m building a custom template just for you- yay!
Most clients spend just a few days on this step.
Write Website Text + Gather Images
Now it’s time to get detailed! After I have a good idea of your vision for the site, I will send your final website build sheet. This is a detailed map of all the content you need on your new website and personalized to the layout you’ve chosen. It includes my professional suggestions for how to best lay out your homepage.
Most clients spend one-two weeks on this step.
I design your new website header and matching alternate logo before the website build starts. Your branding preview will include several different design options, based on your vision sheet. At this point, we will work together to fine-tune your favorite design so that it is perfect for you.
This part of the build typically takes one week or less.
Once your logo/graphics are approved, I use the website build sheet to design your new website. I start with the homepage and include two rounds of revisions to make it perfect. Once the homepage is finalized, I move on to additional pages and add-ons.
This part of the process typically takes one week or less.
NEW TO WORDPRESS?
WordPress requires a domain (http://yourwebsite.com), a host, and ongoing maintenance.
Your domain is your website address.
You purchase your domain. Then I provide simple one-step directions to help you connect your domain to your host before we begin.
Your host is the storage space/server for your website. The host powers all of your pages, graphics, themes, files, etc. that make your website work. It’s important to choose quality hosting for optimum performance.
You can choose to bundle a WordPress package with my hosting services for a “done for you” experience. As a perk, you’ll receive discounted hosting for your first year. Hosting renews annually at current market rate.
You may also choose to provide your own hosting. You will need to connect your domain to your host.
Just like routine maintenance on your car or home, WordPress runs best with regular updates and care. In addition to daily security monitoring, your website will also need weekly, monthly, and annual care.
You can choose to perform your own maintenance or purchase my care plan.
With the purchase of a care plan, you also receive priority email support. You know those “How do I… ?” WordPress or email marketing questions you keep Googling? Email me instead and receive a reply within 24 business hours (and typically much faster).
