The answers to your burning questions.
Before we can get started on your site, you'll need to purchase a domain name and hosting (if you haven't already). You can check out my list of preferred vendors for those here. Additionally, your site may require premium plugins in order to get certain fancy features working. Don't worry, we'll alert you of any additional charges before we implement anything. Finally, you'll need to ensure that your site has someone actively monitoring it for security. Some hosting providers (including my partner developers) include this with your regular hosting subscription. Others do not. Contact me and we can chat about specifics.
Timelines can be a sticky spot when it comes to creative projects, but I'm a pretty strong stickler for holding people accountable and operating as efficiently as possible. Branding projects last about 6 weeks and branding + website projects take an average of 8-12 weeks depending on the scope of the project.
Do you design Squarespace sites?
No. While Squarespace is the perfect platform for businesses just starting out who want to DIY their site and get something up and running quickly, the platform has limited capability and may not grow with you as your business grows. All my sites are custom designed and built on WordPress, a platform that powers 25% of sites across the web. Everything is built with current industry best practices and standards in mind, and will allow you the flexibility to add and update as your business grows.
Will you teach me how to use my site?
My partner developer will provide you with a personalized online training session after your site launches to go over the features and capabilities of your site. After that time, the developer will be available on an hourly basis to provide you with technical support and assistance.
