Frequently asked questions

What platforms do you use to build sites?

I design on Squarespace or Showit. 

What about other website platforms? 

Wix, Weebly, WordPress, and Shopify 

I do not design on Wix or Weebly.  They are amateur platforms not well-suited to business owners motivated to grow. 

WordPress is the wild west of website platforms. While it is a great platform and offers unlimited customization and integrations, it can also come with time-consuming technical challenges and security threats. I do not offer any WordPress services. 

Shopify is the most robust product selling platform on the Internet. I am currently expanding into Shopify site design. If you are interested in having me design a site for you in Shopify, let's chat. 

Can you help me write the words on my website?

I do not write website copy. Since it’s helpful to have all your messaging ready to go before we begin the design process, I suggest hiring a professional copywriter to do it right. Need help? I recommend Christy Copywriting for reliable strategic messaging.

Do you custom code?

Yes, I use custom code specifically on Squarespace websites. However, this service is not included in my primary packages and requires a custom quote. If the website design process has already begun and we need to implement code, you will be charged $50 hourly for the additional coding work to the site. 

Will you do the SEO for my website?

Will you do the SEO for my website?

SEO keyword research and other SEO services, like writing meta descriptions and image alt text, can be added onto your package. Please reach out for more details. 

What do I need to have prepared before we start?

Website design

Gather website messaging, branding assets (such as logos, graphics and imagery), and your site inspiration.

Make a list of your needs and wants. Which features and functionality are non-negotiable for your website? Which are not strictly necessary but would be nice to have? 

Know your website and business goals so we can make sure we can crush em together!

Brand Identity

Be clear on your direction, strategy, and mission. Happy to share thoughts and advice but you should know your business goals and direction before we begin.
