Work With Me

Your website should work and work for you.

Simple as that.

I’m not talking about a pretty website. That part should be a given. I’m talking about an effective website. Because your website isn't just an accessory. It's a tireless marketing tool. It's a hard-working employee. It's a first impression with potential customers. Your website needs to be intuitive and easy to use. It needs to bring in visitors and convert them into customers. It needs to load quickly and be search-engine friendly. It needs to display beautifully on every device. It needs to be simple to update. It needs to work for your business and your life.

You need more than a website. You need a solution.

How It Works

1. Inquire
First things first. Complete my project inquiry form so I can get up to speed about your goals, timeline, and budget. If it seems like we're a good fit, we'll schedule a meeting to discuss the details of your project.
2. Book
I'll send you a custom proposal for your project. If you like the proposal, we'll get all of our ducks in a row. We'll both sign on the dotted line, and you'll pay a 50% deposit to secure your project.
3. Plan
Together we will decide on a goal launch date for your new website. I'll put together a detailed schedule so you know when to expect progress from me and when homework is due. You'll work on gathering content and completing the Website Planning Workbook.
4. Design
The fun begins! I'll create mockups of your new website. We'll start with the home page and move on to the inner details once it's perfected. During this time we'll schedule calls to discuss your feedback, and you'll get the opportunity to make revisions.
5. Develop
Here's where your new website comes to life. I'll create a test site on my development server. I'll show you bits along the way so you can see how it functions. You'll have a chance to make final revisions at the end.
6. Launch
Before your site goes live, the final payment is due. We'll schedule a training session so you can learn how to use your new website. Then I'll transfer the site to your hosting account, and we'll toast to your new live website!

Questions? I've Got Answers.

How much does a website cost?
The short answer: It depends. The long answer: The cost of a website depends on the number of pages and the complexity of the features you're looking for. My website package starts at $5,000.
How long does it take?
The short answer: It depends. The long answer: A typical site takes about 12 weeks. However, the timeline depends on a number of factors, including: the scope of the project, how prepared you are, and how responsive you are during each stage. I'll provide a timeline at the start of the project so you'll know exactly when you can expect things to be done.
How does payment work?
The short answer: My payment plan is simple. I ask for one third to reserve your project, one third at project kickoff, and the remaining third when your new site goes live. The long answer: There isn't one.
Do we need to meet face to face?
The short answer: Not usually. The long answer: I have clients all across North America, and I'm used to working remotely. We'll have check-ins over the phone or on Zoom when necessary. The rest of our communication will happen through e-mail or a project management system.
Can you host my website?
The short answer: No. The long answer: No, but I can make suggestions. My website is happily hosted with Siteground.com. They're affordable and have great customer service. If you need, I can also help you get everything set up.
Why WordPress?
The short answer: It's the best. The long answer: WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that makes updating the content of your website a breeze. I believe the best websites are the ones that receive regular attention, and that doesn’t happen if you have to call your designer for every tiny change. WordPress is also very adaptable. Whether you need a blog, website, or e-commerce site, I can make it happen with WordPress.
Do you work with any platforms other than WordPress?
The short answer: Sometimes. The long answer: I'm a big fan of WordPress for its vast functionality (for me, as a developer) and ease-of-use (for you, as the site administrator). I find other platforms to be too restricting for the type of websites I typically build. That said, I will occasionally develop for Shopify for e-commerce sites.

Raves

Amanda was fantastic to work with. She is very organized and goes above and beyond in her work. She has excellent communication and project management skills and is very transparent. When I had questions, Amanda took the time to walk me through them and thoroughly explained her processes. Everything was seamless from the introductory kick off call, to the billing, to the outstanding job she did on my website!

Autumn Hachey Hello Yellow Blog

Our website turned out better than I had imaged. We had alot of competing ideas in the office to coordinate and working with Amanda we were able to combine the better ones, ditch the not so great ones, and come up with a cohesive vision for the final product…Even when we presented complicated or sometimes very vague requests, Amanda consistently created on the page what I had only envisioned in my head.

My clients have raved about how easy to use and helpful my website is. Amanda was great to work with and always replied to me promptly with well researched, fresh ideas. I’d highly recommend her services for anyone looking for a new website.
