Are you an entrepreneur or creative considering a website or blog? Are you unsure of where you should even begin when considering getting a website for your hustle?
I have over ten years of experience with Web Design. I have set up websites for entrepreneurs, creatives, churches, and small businesses. Over those years I’ve come to realize my target customers need more than just a website designed.Are you unsure of where you should even begin when getting a #website for your #sidehustle?

They need help figuring out where to start. Potential website owners need help sorting through the mountains of information out there. I help with laying a great foundation from the start of their website project.
Too Much Information?
There’s plenty of information available on the web. Unfortunately, most of it is not written with the non-techie in mind.
I want to change that. I’ll make your website project easily understandable from the start. I save you time, frustration, and money by helping you sort through the noise. I’ll help you understand the best practices for your website project from the start. I want to educate my clients instead of just taking your money and handing you a website design.

Where do you even begin?
Each of my WordPress packages starts with an hour of consulting with me. After learning more about your vision for your project, I will guide you about what the best next steps are.
I’ll save you from having to dig for information about how to best get started!
I’ll install WordPress on the web hosting of your choice. If you don’t have web hosting for your website, no problem. I’ll help you find web hosting that meets your needs.
WordPress has many default settings once you install it. All these settings can be confusing to a first-time WordPress User.
I will configure your WordPress Site to work best for you and your target audience right from the start. I’ll use my experience in working with WordPress for other clients, as well as my knowledge of digital marketing.
This is a service I wish someone had for me when I got my first WordPress Website. I studied 50 hours of online courses to really understand the best ways to configure WordPress for each kind of website and industry! I’m thankful I can share my know-how with my fellow Entrepreneurs.
Finding and Installing a WordPress Theme
WordPress Websites use Themes to control how they look. The Theme could be called the basic design of your WordPress website.
There are thousands of free Themes available for WordPress. This is both a blessing and a struggle for a potential website owner. Although there are many free themes to choose from, not all will meet your unique needs. Many of them may not be easy to customize either.
I can help you sift through these themes quickly because I understand the features of each theme. I’ll be able to sort out which ones will work best for your needs.
It’s also important to find themes that meet Google’s recommendations. For example, finding themes that work well on computers, tablets, and phones. Having a theme that meets Google’s recommendations will help you rank better in the Search Engines. This way your audience will find you when they search for the product or service you provide.
If this sounds like Greek to you, don’t worry. You’re not alone!
I will help you sort through all this talk of Search Engine Optimization. I’ll help you understand what you need to do to help your website perform well in searches. And I’ll do it with as little techno-babble as possible.
Finding and Installing Plugins
Most WordPress websites use additional programs called Plugins to make your site do what you need it to do.
As with WordPress Themes, there are thousands of free plugins available. There are plugins that can do pretty much anything. On my website, for example, I use a plugin to create my contact form. I use another plugin to add little images next to my menu items. The possibilities are nearly endless.
Because there are so many plugins available, it’s hard to figure out what you need. Which ones will do what you need them to do? I will help you sort through all the complicated sounding features to know what will work best for you. Having worked with WordPress for so long, I have experience in selecting great plugins.
Registering Your Site with Google and Other Search Engines
Google and other search engines offer many free services to website owners. Registering with their services can help your website rank better in search engines. Your target audience will find you easier.
I will configure your account with Google and other popular search engines. I will also submit a sitemap to these services. This helps Google keep track of the information you have on your website (or “index” your site as they say). That way, when someone searches for that information, Google will know to send them your way.
I will also install Google Analytics on your website. Analytics is a powerful tool Google has created to help website owners like you learn more about your visitors. It will help you track how many visits your site is getting. It also shows you how people have found your site, and what they are looking at when they get there, and so much more! With Google analytics, you will be able to learn more about your visitors so you can better tailor your website to their needs.
This saves you on time and money in marketing your website.
Basic Training for New WordPress Users
Remember how I told you I took over 50 hours of online courses to learn how to best use WordPress and work with it?
Don’t worry. You won’t have to take 50 hours of videos for WordPress training!
I am going to provide you will simple, non-technical training in how to find your way around the “Dashboard” of your WordPress Site.
Your Dashboard is the part of the site only you can see. In your Dashboard, once you’re logged in, you can write new pages for your website. You can write blog posts if you want to have a blog. You basically control your entire website from the Dashboard.
I’m going to provide you with some simple video training for how to use your Dashboard.
I also give each of my new WordPress clients an ebook workbook to use in planning out your website’s content. Your content is the information inside of your website.
I’ll give you some basic information on getting visitors to your website. I’ll also explain how to understand your Google Analytics.
These services are included in all my WordPress packages I offer.

My Basic Child Theme Package
If you are hoping to have more customization than the WordPress Customizer can offer you, I can help out with that too. You’d need my Basic Child Theme Package.
A Child Theme is WordPress’ name for a unique theme that a web developer creates based on an existing theme in WordPress. It’s not really a DIY project to tackle, as it involves using the programming language PHP as well as coding with CSS and HTML5.
I can provide all the above services for you plus develop a child theme for your website project to meet your needs starting at $500. If you’d like a more specific quote, use my contact form to tell me a little bit more about your project, so I have a better idea what that entails.

I have a Shopping Cart Package for those of you hoping to set up a shopping cart website. My E-commerce WordPress Package includes all the above services. I will also configure your Shopping Cart System.
A shopping cart on a website allows you, the website owner, to post products for sale. Customers can then come to your website and buy those products. A shopping cart calculates shipping costs, taxes, and other expenses related to the sale of your product. If you will be selling digital products like ebooks, a shopping cart can securely deliver your digital products to your customer.
My eCommerce WordPress Package starts at $1000. Let me know more about your proposed project so I can get you a more detailed quote.
