Are you unfamiliar with some of the website vocabulary? Or maybe you have a question specific to your business needs. I've tried to anticipate those questions and answer them here. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any more questions!
I like to compare websites to homes because it's a great way to understand what is needed with a website. With that in mind, you can build a home (the home being your website) unless you have land to build on. You can't have a website with out a space to host it. It's like renting land to build a home.
Most DIY website builders like Wix and Squarespace include it in their price and then it's up to you to piece it all together.
I include it in my price and actually manage it for you. So you never need to worry about how to point you domain to it or how to make it secure. I take care of all for you!
Basically, without hosting your site will never have a place on the internet and people will not be able to access it.
The domain name is that www.anything.com address you give people to find your site. Just like you give amazon your home mailing address when you order a new book, you have to give people your domain address so people know where to find your website.
You don't need to worry about the how to on domain names. Just know you need one and we can point it to your website when it's time.
No problem! I can transfer over your site free of charge when you use my services.
Yes! I customize a drag and drop builder to meet your needs and provide you with step by step video tutorials on how to update photos and text...and even create new pages! You will still have control over your site!
Until I see the size of the house (using my home analogy again) you want to build, it's very hard to give you an estimate. However, my hosting service fees (what you pay after the site it built and you are making the updates yourself) are very competitive to wix and squarespace. The difference, is you get me as your personal help desk. When you need help, I'm here rather than someone who doesn't know you or your business.
Yes! In fact the more branding you have already done better. I'll match all your current branding. You can send me all your ideas and examples and will custom build the site of your dreams. If you don't have fonts and colors chosen yet, I can help you craft your style guide - and you'll use that over and over again!
Yes! I can integrate shopify, woocommerce and most other e-commerce stores you are already using without the need to change anything unless you want to change.
Yes, there are many membership platform options that we can use. If you aren't currently using any, I can make suggestions and if you are already in love with your current platform, I can help you integrate it and sell it on your website.
Support packs are helpful for changes you want to make, but you don't have the time or patience to figure it out. You can use your support hours and I'll take care of the change needed. I sell them in packs of 2 ($60), 5 ($125) and 10 ($200) hours.
Yes! I love doing this because it means you are being very smart about your email list! There are many ways to do this depending on which email service you provider your currently use, or you want to use. However, we can certainly add this to your website.
Add ons are additional services that many starter websites don't need. Eventually as a business grows, they may be needed. Rather than charging support pack fees which would get expensive real quick, I offer add on packages to my current clients.
These are priced according to how much work is involved. For example, if you would like to integrate shopify, then I can do a package add on for a fixed cost including 5 products with a tutorial on how to add more yourself, or I can do a package for a fixed cost including all the products you have. The more you are willing to do yourself the more money you save! (Knowing I'm still here if you get in a pickle!)
