How it Works
Our strategy, design and content process is super intentional so you can spend less time worrying about building your website and more time on everything else on your plate.
Gone are the days of never-ending email threads, miscommunications, and drifting deadlines. Instead, we have designed a clear timeline for project completion.
Planning: We’ll have an hour-long Strategy Session where we’ll help you get clear on your brand strategy, your niche, and/or your website goals—whatever your project calls for to get started on the right foot.
Content: You’ll have an hour-long Content Strategy Session to discuss content for your website. Depending on your package, we will either edit the content you provide us or write it for you.
Development: Web design takes place during 2 Work Days. You’ll choose them when booking to make sure you are available for feedback during those days.
Launch & Learn: Once the site is ready to launch, you’ll get a 40-minute follow-up call, relevant video tutorials, and 30 days of email support.

Do you provide hosting?
We host all client websites! Your first year of hosting comes with the first year included. We provide this service so you get the best support on a server configured especially for fast and secure WordPress websites. A care team is available to us 24/7 to assist with troubleshooting.
I already have hosting, can I stay with them?
To mantain the integrity and quality of our sites, we only build and maintain websites hosted by us.
We have partnered with a top WordPress only hosting company that offers the best service, hardware, performance and security features are backing up your site.
We will migrate any site hosted on a different platform to our server.
Am I locked into a contract? What if I want to cancel my hosting plan?
You are not locked into a contract for hosting. As a new client, your first year of hosting is free. After that first year, you pay for an additional year (of multiple years if you’d like). This fee is non-refundable once it is paid but your annual hosting will not be renewed.
Your website will always be 100% yours. Should you ever wish to host it elsewhere, the website is yours do with and move as you wish.
You may cancel hosting services at any time. Submit your request to cancel via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You have two options after cancellation:
(1) Stay on the platform and self-manage at their current rate.
Or, (2) Migrate away from the platform. You will be responsible for either migrating the site yourself or hiring a developer to migrate the site to a new hosting platform.
Will my website look good on mobile?
Absolutely, yes! Responsive design is imperative for your website strategy and user experience. Your website will look good on desktop computers, iPads and tablets and mobile phones of all sizes.
Will my website show up in search engines? Do you provide SEO?
Absolutely, yes! Search Engine Optimization and analytics are imperative for your website strategy.
We provide basic SEO setup by page mapping for link tree search page display and we then submit that to Google for SEO. Also, we set up a report for you on Google Analytics so you can see page views, etc.
If you’re specifically looking to get on page 1 of Google or if you want to use Ad Words, we have an SEO specialist that will come up with a comprehensive SEO package to get you the SEO restults you’re after.
How long will it take to build my website?
Check out our new and improved process!
Book your workdays, complete preparation materials, your website will be built in 7 business days.
When can you start working with me? When can we start?
Your workdays will be scheduled over a 3 week period to allow you time to complete the prework and for us to schedule and complete our strategy session. Once you complete your last work day, your website will be built within 7 days!
Can I hire you hourly? What is your hourly rate?
You can book a specialist for an entire day or for half a day, but not by the hour.
We aim to provide the best for our clients, so we focus on partnering with business owners who are committed to a strong online strategy that employs the entire 10-Point Website Wellness Plan.
You may have a site that just needs some updates or a fresh look. We have a ton of Upgrade Packages that will take your existing site to the next level and get your site upgraded to “10-Point” without going through a whole re-design process.
How do payments work?
We ask for a 50% deposit to book our time and the other 50% right before delivery of final files (but after final proofs so you can be sure everything is to your complete satisfaction.) We also have payment plans available. You’ll have the option to pay with a credit card or PayPal right from the invoice.
