FAQ

Are you taking new clients?
Yes, but it may be a few weeks before we can start, but that’s no reason we should delay an intro call so you can start working on what I’ll need from you to get rolling! If you want to join my waitlist, please fill out the form HERE to get in touch and I will get back to you within one business day!

I don’t have a large budget. What can I do with the money I do have?
The intro call is all about finding a solution that works for you. If your budget is small, you may get more bang for your buck by creating your website with a pre-made theme or limiting the number of special features your site has. I love doing custom themes, but I help people in all budget-ranges get a solution that will work for them.

Do you only work on NEW websites?
No! I work with lots of clients who have an existing WordPress website. My services for existing websites range from performance, security, and design audits to making large additions and edits to  existing websites.

What DON’T you do?
Well, I mean, a lot of things, but probably most pertinent to your question: I don’t do copywriting (that is, writing the words on your pages) or SEO strategy. All of my websites are SEO friendly but not necessarily SEO optimized. SEO experts can cost thousands and thousands of dollars, and they should – some of these people have Master’s Degrees in search engine optimization!  Of course, I do what I’m good at: your website is coded and structured to be properly indexed by search engines.

Wait, what IS SEO?
SEO stands for “search engine optimization,” and it deals with optimizing the content – images and words (and keywords) – on your site to get you more traffic via search results on search engines.

Can you do everything for my website always and forever?
I love long-term clients! After your site’s build and launch, I offer maintenance retainer packages to clients. These packages allow you to buy my time ahead of time (and save money in the process), so when you need something updated, checked on, or fixed, I’m on it!

Can you even update my blog for me when I write a new post?
I can, but it’s probably not the most efficient use of your money and time. I’m happy to train you on updating your website so you can do it yourself! If it’s not something that you can handle and you’d like to discuss the possibility of this kind of partnership, please contact me HERE so we can chat!

Will you set up my newsletter?
Absolutely! I often work with clients to create branded newsletter templates. We can also connect your newsletter to your site so visitors can subscribe directly.

Will you add a popup for me?
Yes. A popup can serve many functions, and if we determine that it’s best for your site, I’m happy to add one. Note that a popup is a special feature that will likely add extra design and development time to your site’s build. You can read more about special features in my studio introduction HERE.

Can you make my homepage do that thing where the images rotate through?
Yes, I can make a slider! Sliders can be great attention-grabbers, especially if your services include special seasonal offerings. Note that a homepage slider is a special feature that will likely add extra design and development time to your site’s build. You can read more about special features in my studio introduction HERE.

I need a membership area. Can you create that on my site?
I have built membership areas for many clients, and I’d be happy to do so for you. Note that a membership area is a special feature that will likely add extra design and development time to your site’s build. You can read more about special features in my studio introduction HERE.

Can you set up my online store?
Yes, I can set up your online store that’s either hosted on your site or on a shopping platform like Shopify. Note that an online store is a special feature that will likely add extra design and development time to your site’s build. You can read more about special features in my studio introduction HERE.
