And yet, as you’ve probably realized, there’s more to creating your DIY website than just making pages or paying for a template.
I’m Kimberly, and I’ve been a graphic designer for over 30 years, and I started making websites 15 years ago. And even with my skills and training, I made some big mistakes and learned some lessons the hard way.
These web design mistakes and hard lessons cost me money.
Effective design that works for you and your project is more than just knowing which buttons to push on a program that promises you an effortless DIY website. Effective design also involves:
• User Experience (UX)
• Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
And the current best practices for building websites — which change all the time!
Have you spent far too long staring at a blank screen,
trying to figure out what to say on your website?
You probably had all kinds of exciting things envisioned for your website.
But you didn’t realize just how difficult writing copy for your own website would be!
I’ve developed this easy to use guided journey workbook to provide writing prompts and website copy helps for you!
First, contact me either on one of my package pages or contact page, and we’ll schedule a time to talk more about your project before we decide to work together.
We’ll start off with Zoom call, so you can tell me more about your project and what you need your website to do for you.
Next, I’ll draw up a contract. The contract protects both of us, so we each get what we promised each other out of this design project. As soon as you send back the signed contract and a 50% deposit, I’ll get right to work.
The first thing I do is some market research. I’ll check out the competition and verify the best practices in your niche for websites. We’ll also look at what your website can do better than your competition.
Next, I’ll create a prototype mockup for your website, so you can see the basic layout I think will work best for your goals. We’ll tweak the layout until we have it right.
Once you have approved the mockup, I’ll begin working on making this design a live website.
Finally, we’ll schedule a time when I can train you (and anyone on your team) in using your website.
