Great news! It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…
STEP #1 Choose Your Package
Ready, Set...DIY! ($247)
This is the perfect option if you largely want to DIY your website but want someone to help lay the foundation right.
To start, I’ll set you up with the fabulous Divi theme from Elegant Themes (included in the cost of this package), which is extremely customizable, easy to use, responsive (i.e. it works great on mobile devices) and has earned tons of rave reviews. It’s perfect for beginners but even professional web designers are using it ’cause it’s THAT good. If you can’t already tell, I’m a huge fan.
Next, you pick your colors and fonts and I’ll set them up for you, as well as your logo and favicon (if you’d like one) and your site’s basic settings (e.g. static page vs. blog posts; format for blog post data; etc.) PLUS, I’ll install three premium plug-ins to help boost your social media integration, design beautiful opt-in-forms and use shortcodes.
Once this is all set up, I’ll show you where you can watch detailed, how-to videos on creating pages and blog posts and using all the awesome features of Divi.
BONUS! Once you’ve completed your site, let’s celebrate with a complimentary Deluxe Website Review (valued at $147).
Ready to get started? Awesome!
Make sure you read the FAQ below. If you have any questions for me, just shoot me an email. Otherwise, take the speed lane and order your website here. Together, we’ll have your new website up, running and ready for business!
5 and You're Live! ($997)
Includes all the features of the Ready, Set…DIY! package PLUS the creation of 5 pages on your brand spankin’ new site (e.g. home, about, services, blog and contact pages). You provide the copy and images for these pages but the actual uploading and layout is up to me. Three reviews of your site, to make sure you are 100% thrilled, are included.
Contact me to find out my availability and to get the ball rolling!
Just Get 'Er Done! ($2,497)
Includes all features of the other two packages PLUS my copywriting services PLUS up to 10 royalty-free images AND custom graphic design of your header (if applicable to the layout you choose) and up to 5 other custom graphics. In short, your site will look bea-YOU-tiful and ready to go. All you have to worry about is providing blog content (if that’s something you would like to include on your site) and I’ll even upload three posts to get you up and running.

STEP #2 – Choose your colors, fonts and preferences.
For all of these, I will provide guidance to help you choose what truly represents you, your business and the types of clients you most want to attract.
STEP #3 – If you choose either of the advanced packages…
We’ll get a little deeper so that I TOTALLY get who you are, what you do and what kind of website will thrill you. To do this, I’ll send you a nifty online questionnaire and we’ll also chat via phone or Skype before I begin construction.
Please read before you book any of my services.
Do you only work with WordPress?
Yes, it’s what I know and love…and in my opinion it’s the best.
What theme(s) do you use and are they responsive?
Yes, 100% beautifully responsive! With so much traffic coming from mobile devices, I wouldn’t send you out into the WWW any other way.
As for themes, I was going to offer a variety for you to choose from – but then I realized there’s really no point! Divi is so customizable that it takes the place of hundreds of other themes. We can even use it to make landing pages. Trust me, you’ll love it.
Since you’re using a theme, will my site look like a million other sites?
Not at all! Even though we’re using Divi (a rock-solid foundation with exceptional code and security), there are millions of ways to make your site look unique in terms of colors, images, fonts and layouts.
Another benefit of using Divi is that it is constantly being updated for the latest version of WordPress – and all updates are free through your WordPress dashboard. It’s also heavily supported and comes with step-by-step videos, showing you how to easily use all of its impressive features.
What happens if I need additional help once my site is created?
An excellent and very important question! Once your site is up and running and you’re 100% thrilled with the way it looks, I’ll direct you to a series of step-by-step videos on how to add pages, posts and use the many features Divi includes.
Beyond that, you can hire a tech savvy VA, a web developer, a service like WP Curve or possibly even me (my rate is $120/hr).
That said, my main love and focus is on design and copy, so you’re best suited to my services if you have a DIY mindset. The good news is that WordPress is pretty easy to learn (especially once I’ve done all the setting up and tweaking for you) and the more you learn, the more independence you’ll have…if you want it!
Is there anything you require before we begin?
Yes…I’m so glad you asked! Besides payment, I need you to:
1) have a registered domain name (I use NameCheap.com)
I have a step-by-step video tutorial to help you set up your domain and install WordPress. And, if you go with either of the above hosting companies, I know they will take great care of you.
I don’t have a logo, can you design one for me?
Probably, or I can hook you up with a talented designer who can. Starting prices begin at $150.
How long will it take to get my site?
A Ready, Set…DIY! site should take no more than 2-3 days IF you have your domain, hosting and WordPress installation ready to roll (if not, I’ll show you exactly how to do it and once done, you can expect the above time-frame).
I book the advanced packages based on my availability. Once you contact me, I’ll let you know what I’m up to and when you can expect your site to go live. I take deadlines VERY seriously (never missed one yet!) and if I take you on as a client, you can sleep well knowing that you will get the VIP treatment.
As a reference:
A 5 and You’re Live! package should take about 5-7 working days to complete IF you have your domain, hosting and WordPress installation ready to roll, along with all your site’s content.
A Just Get ‘Er Done! package will take about 2 – 3 weeks to complete, again, based on your domain, hosting, bla, bla, bla… AND your availability to provide feedback and timely reviews.
How do you accept payment?
I accept payment through PayPal after our initial phone/Skype consultation (for advanced packages) or when you order your Ready, Set…DIY! package.
If, in the crazy-pants scenario, you don’t totally LOVE your website, I can issue a $200 refund for the Ready, Set…DIY! package or up to 50% of your investment for the two more advanced options (because they will have required a significant amount of my time).
In all instances, I will need to remove the theme, and all images and copy (that I have provided) from your site. Please know that no one has ever asked me for a refund, but I offer this guarantee for your peace of mind as you make this investment.
