Just starting out? You need a website that works from day one...
and can grow with your business when you are ready.
Are you looking for a simple website you can grow with?
Perhaps you just have a single simple service, or your business is brand new and you aren't ready for a larger site.
You've likely already explored some options to build your own website. Maybe you're just plain stuck and overwhelmed, or you launched your site but nobody can find you. I hear these stories ALL THE TIME.
Let's build you a website that matches your simple needs AND has room for you to grow!
My starter package is a great fit if you are brand new, or offer a single service, and want a simple site that is both beautiful and effective.
Each starter site is 100% customized to your brand and goals and designed to grow with you when you are ready. Plus, you can easily manage and edit the site yourself!
Our planning process provides all the support you need to write great content, find photos & more. You'll get a custom one page flow-style website with up to 8 flexible sections to effectively share your most important content, including about me, your services, testimonials, a contact form and more. My video tutorials and training call will leave you feeling confident and excited.
Packages start at $2000 with a 4 month payment plan, and can be modified with additional pages & features as needed.
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. When you're ready, we book a 2nd coaching call to review your content and confirm our design plan.
Once your content, fonts, colors & images are complete, we are ready to build your site! Your website build will take a total of 5 days (yes, that fast!). 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!
It's important to me that you never feel stuck with your website, so I design your site to grow with you. A few years from now when you're ready for a fresh look, you don't have to start from scratch. We can easily update everything from colors and fonts to your entire design style or page structures. My goal is to build you a website that we can grow with your practice for years to come.
I make sure you have 100% confidence updating & maintaining your website with a video tutorial, coaching call, and private resource hub. Whether you want to edit text, change photos, or add a service, your new WordPress website will be FAR easier to manage than you might imagine with a drag and drop ease and flexibility.
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.
“Working with Sarah to build a website for my midwifery practice was an absolutely fabulous experience. I really did feel like I had a thoughtful, attentive doula with me every step of the way. The fact that she’s so familiar with birth & midwifery meant that she could understand intuitively what I was envisioning & how best to represent my small practice. She was able to point me to loads of great resources as we developed my website."
- Claire, Midwife
“I know it seems like a big expense to invest in a website build but it is so, so worth it. In a single month, I have had more client inquiries, more success in booking clients, and love that I can send people to my site for local resources, etc. It’s worth every penny. Sarah is an absolute pleasure to work with – patient, warm, and gives gentle, constructive feedback.”
- Lindsay, Doula & Childbirth Educator
"I appreciated her knowledge around website development and SEO, creative flair, editing skills, and on a deeper level, her intuition into who I am, what I want to offer, and my vision for my business. Having a knowledgeable, compassionate support person by my side was essential!”
