Yay! How exciting is the thought of a new site?! Is your mind racing with ideas and possibilities?
Okay, here are some things you should know about me right off the bat. I don't want to waste your time if you're looking for a specific type of web designer! :)
Templates: I design on templates. I don't create the templates. I am a front-end kind of gal and, although I can do basic coding, I am only going to be making your site pretty and working with what a template and platform allow. I will have you choose a template from a list of vendors (or one on your platform), then I'll design all the pretty stuff, install the template, and then configure the elements and plugins.
Platforms: I design on Squarespace, Blogger, and Wordpress.
Maintenance: I do not maintain sites. Again, I just make them pretty. If you're looking for a maintenance plan, then I know some web designers who offer them, but they're usually pricey. Your best bet, if you're wanting to keep costs low, is to learn the differences between platforms and figure out which one you feel comfortable maintaining yourself. Personal favorite: Squarespace... and I don't get paid for that. :) Google "website maintenance checklist" and you can find some pretty great resources that tell you some things you should be doing weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly.
SEO: I'm not your gal. I struggle with this myself. It's something that you can definitely do yourself, but since I will not be digging into your content a whole lot (just the look and design), it would be really difficult for me to do a sufficient job and boost your rankings. I can totally direct you to some great SEO experts and DIY's if you need. This is a great overview if you're clueless about SEO.
Now that you're still with me, let's talk details! We could go one of three ways:
Need a brand spankin' new site? Or a migration? I'd love to work with you to design and launch something you'll love... and something that will really showcase your brand, product, or talents.
This involves me taking your current site and giving it a facelift. No change in platform. I take what you have, design on your existing template or a new one, and make everything look fresh and beautiful!
Need something simple or maybe a few elements or features installed and/or configured? Whether you want to integrate a lead capture form, an Instagram feed, or a blog preview slider, I can help!
