Frequently Asked Questions


+ Is it worth it to hire a designer?

If you're here reading this, you feel like you need help. You want help. Whether it is me or another coach or designer or a class I urge you to spend money on you. Invest in your worth and your passions. We are only here for a short while and to spend a life alone DIYing it makes it harder than it needs to be. How much ground could you gain with a few legs up and dollars invested?

What is it worth, stress wise and emotionally, to not have to take on the pressure of doing it all on your own?

How much is feeling proud of your brand and website for the next several years worth? What if it lasted the life of your company and grew with you?

How much more would you enjoy working if all your clients and customers were your ideal clients, no misfits?

Read this article for answers: WHY HIRE A DESIGNER

+ I am nervous hiring someone online. I have never done this before.

You are being daring big and bold enough to do the research. You wouldn't ever know if something is right for you without getting the facts!

So I know it is a little different than googling and hiring a local mechanic, or masseuse or hairdresser because you can’t walk right in and find them at any time. I understand that feeling and concern and I take every measure to be reachable and communicate any times I might not be.

With the technology today I can help bridge that gap of distance. I constantly test and try new apps and systems that let us communicate almost like we were in the same room together. I respond to emails in 24 hours or less Monday - Friday and you will have my cell phone number during your creation period. I also use an email autoresponder that will tell you when I will be available to get back with you if there is any change to the 24 hours or less response time.

We can use Google Hangouts to talk face to face or screen share and show each other something on the computer like we were side by side. I like to use Loom an app that sends you a video of my screen and me walking you through items I am sending you just as if we were sitting at a coffee table looking over your project in person.

I use DropBox to share files and will create and share your own folder and put everything we create for your branding in there for you to access as they get completed.

A great thing about hiring someone online is you don't have to pick the best (or lesser of the evils) in your area. You pick the best fit for you out of the whole world!

If there are any other questions you have, mouse size to elephant size, please send me an email. I would love to answer you!

+ What if I don’t like it?

We do not move on to the next phase of the creation until you are I love with the current one. My process eats the elephant a bit at a time so that we don’t choke. This will ensure that each element is as amazing as it can be. It also gives room for showing you possibilities you might not have imagined.

There can be some back and forth. You give me feedback and I make some revisions and you give me feedback. This is how the creation process goes. Sometimes we have it on the first board sometimes the third. The design becomes better because of the process. Every time, no matter what that looks like.

I am here to take that pressure off you. You are not responsible for fixing it. You are here to tell me as specifically as possible what you would like to see different and I will show you more concepts or revisions. If you have your own idea of something you want to see, chime in! Have fun with it and let me get busy and bring the next concept back to show you

+ What if I don't have any ideas or need more help in every step?

Just like in the previous question, I am the designer, your coach and your guide. If you have a very specific vision let me help you bring it to life. If you have no idea but just know that a bangin’ beautiful logo and website is possible and that you want it, let me pull up my sleeves, get creating, and bring a silver platter of concepts to you.

As we create be very clear and straight with me. Don’t just grasp at straws just trying to answer a question of mine. If you don’t know and want me to take more design freedoms to see what I come up with, that is ok. Don’t be overwhelmed by the world of possibilities and don’t answer if you're not really clear and sure on something. Then we can stay the course and not get washed side to side by something that really was not a strong feeling or just something put down to move on.

+ What if I don't have all my images or content ready by my creation start date?

This is something we don't want to run into, so please schedule your creation dates far enough out that you are sure you can complete your content. If you feel that we are getting close to the start date and you are struggling to finish let me know 2 weeks ahead of time. Let me go through your content with you and help prompt thoughts and ideas, or maybe solve something that is hanging you up.

You have been in business long enough to know how to describe your product what your offerings are and how you might want to improve or alter them and we work though it together. Working a little more closely to help get it right, get it exciting and get it done.

If content is not done by the creation dates booked I will keep your deposit and move you to the next nearest available dates. This could be a few weeks to a few months I will not try to squeeze you in, and I will not sacrifice quality or add pressure to your project. This is something that I will just not compromise on nor will I run over into another client’s project time.

 

+ Do you have a page limit?

My page limit is set at 15 pages of content included in my package. More is certainly not better for the best practices of web design. Yet I have included more pages than the typical 10 in a package to account for Opt-In form pages, and other after booking client lounge pages that benefit your visitors experience of your site and makes getting information to your potential clients more automated. If that is part of your website creation needs.

I only break some rules of best practice, (yes we can get a little naughty if it helps deliver your content and set you apart). But having more than a few Navigation buttons at the top of your site or more than a couple calls to action per page is one rule that I will not break.

Don’t worry that your site might get too busy or complicated. I am here to get the flow and design just right!

+ When are your next creation dates available and how far out should I book?

Depending on the volume of content that you need to rewrite, if you need a photoshoot done or can work with carefully selected stock images, and my calendar... this is a pretty impossible answer to give without speaking to you about our project. Book a Phone Meeting with me after filling out the form with a few questions and we can pick a date that works you into my next available opening while giving you the appropriate time needed to work through my guides and create your content.

Just to help you have an idea of what that time might look like, I would say an average is 2 weeks to a month for a client that is pretty clear on who they want to serve, why and how but just needs help with the right way to approach and say it. Spending 5 to 10 hours a week would be critical and the amount dependent on how deep you want to dig into the guides and “homework”.

+ Will Squarespace work for my business?

Squarespace is a powerful platform that will function well for any industry. It depends a little more on the person than the type of business when making this selection.

Squarespace is excellent for service-based businesses, and most e-commerce businesses. Also for people who want a maintenance free website and are not very tech savvy.

Squarespace might not be for you if you want total design freedom. Squarespace's drag and drop and smart system give us so much help in ways but can be a little limiting at times. I can get creative with my design programs to fill in gaps where needed but I try to keep this at a minimum. The more that Squarespace does have control over the better. That is how it can work for you in a fluid mobile friendly design and SEO. Its limits are set to help those not so design savvy to get a consistent and beautiful product by reducing mistakes and limiting the possible crazy factor.

Squarespace might also not be for you if you have hundreds of products. It can handle huge stores but some of the functions of organizing products is not as strong as a site like Shopify.

+ Why do you design with Squarespace and how much will it cost?

Well this might not be a loaded question but it could certainly be a loooooog one.. Here are the top 3 points and pricing.

#1 Squarespace gives my clients the most freedoms and ability to manage their sites on their own after our build together. They make it easy for you to maintain, update and monitor your website without having to pay or wait for a web developer. No worries about updating software, plugins or widgets. No need to patch security vulnerabilities or worry that changing one thing might break something else on your website.

#2 Drop and drop design that is really smart. No need to be a coding genius. Squarespace does it all for you. Your site is also instantly mobile friendly and it is easy to check that your content is going to show up like you want it to on mobile devices. With mobile devices accounting for more than half of website traffic this is a HUGE must!

#3 Built in Search Engine Optimization capabilities. Every Squarespace website is equipped with all the spaces and elements needed for a strong SEo strategy. Site descriptions, page title, custom URLs, search-friendly formatting and others are all easily managed. Each site also generates a sitemap automatically that helps Google crawl, understand and rank a website. **PRICING Personal Plan: $12 a month billed annually ($144) or $16 Month to month Business Plan: $18 a month billed annually ($216) or $26 Month to month

You can cancel your plan at any time, no hassle or questions. Also switch plans and receive a prorated refund or just pay the difference.

Because I am a Squarespace Circle member you can receive 20% OFF a new website and online store subscriptions - Discount only applies to the first payment on annual plans. The discount doesn't apply to future renewals, reactivations, upgrades, or downgrades.
