Are you ready for a website designed to reach your business goals?
You've done well so far, but you know you could be doing better. Your website is looking a bit dated, wonky on mobile, or the design no longer reflects who you are and what you do.
It's easy to settle for a website that is "good enough", but is clearly NOT enough to help you reach your full potential. When we don't invest in our online presence, prospective clients don't invest in us. It's that simple.
If you have an established practice that is ready to grow, it's time to invest in a beautiful & effective website. My custom website design package is for you.
Your custom website is designed to help you grow:
Your 100% unique website is designed from scratch to match your business identity and goals.
The design is 100% mobile responsive, so potential clients can easily explore your services on any device.
Each page on your website is designed to help site visitors feel ready to take the next step and hire you.
Your site includes branded social media icons, optional instagram feed display, and social share buttons.
Want to offer a free giveaway to build your mailing list? A pop-up form on your site will grow both your list and your practice.
Every site includes core settings for proper Search Engine Optimization so that potential clients can easily find you online.
My advanced forms tool creates effective contact, newsletter, and registration forms with mailing list integration.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
We begin with my unique website planning process to help you explore your needs & vision. You will have plenty of resources and support as you prepare for the build, including guidance on content and photos. This process includes up to 3 coaching calls to explore your needs, review your content and confirm our design plan.
Once your content & images are complete, we are ready to build your site! Most custom websites take 2-4 weeks depending on their complexity. While I take care of the the website build, I do ask that you be available for feedback as we go. I want to be sure you 100% love your new website!
I make sure you have 100% confidence updating & maintaining your website with a video tutorial, coaching call, and private resource hub.

While you may have heard about the WordPress learning curve, thankfully website design has changed a lot in recent years! I build your site in a flexible drag and drop builder within WordPress and rarely need to use code. This means that you will be 100% able to edit & manage your own website. I am of course always available for hourly support if you'd rather not be responsible for this!
Quite simply, it is the best platform for business owners who want an online foundation they can grow with. WordPress offers all the flexibility we need to make the most of your site, fully mobile responsive design capability, and countless tools we can use to add functionality as you grow. I use the Beaver Builder content management system - trusted, 100% flexible, and up to date. Plus, full drag and drop design structure so you can make changes on your site with ease.
You will need both a hosting account and a registered domain. I have a trusted company based in Canada with top-notch support, great site speeds, and affordable packages ($6 USD / month with a 3 year contract!). You can get a free domain with your hosting. Your email can be free, or you can pay for a gsuite email.
Yes, and no… While it is optimal to work with a graphic designer to create your visual brand, our web design process can define your colors and fonts. Many clients choose to do a simple word logo writing their business name with a nice font and perhaps some color until they are ready for a higher level of branding support.
Good search engine optimization takes time and effort. I set up your site with a strong SEO foundation, paying attention to your on-page optimization and back-end settings. Your SEO success will vary according to the age of your domain, your location, the size of your site, blogging and link building efforts, and a host of other factors. Good SEO is an ongoing process - there are no quick fixes.
“When I started looking a designer I knew Sarah was the right person in Sarah. We designed a new site from the ground up – content, design, branding and SEO. I really appreciated how she made sure I understood what was needed every step of the way, and helped me flesh out my ideas. The site is exactly what I envisioned: Fresh, fun, clean and professional. The inquiries are already rolling in, so it’s also pleased my ideal client, which is exactly what it should be doing!”
- Megan, Doula & Childbirth Educator
“Sarah is creative genius in motion. She listens deeply, speaks from knowledge and experience, and is willing to try new things! It was a pure joy for me to see and sense how much FUN she was having as she created my site. I also appreciated the resources and tutorials. It felt good knowing we were both rowing the boat together, at the same time.”
- Karen, Reiki Instructor and Healing Mentor
