Just getting started in your business and want to get off on the right foot? You don’t need to invest tons of money to get a custom website and you don’t need to DIY it with a Wix site either.

With my starter website design package you can get a beautiful WordPress website that isn’t going to break the bank, that works perfectly, is secure, looks professional, is personalised to your business and is scalable as your business grows.

That will definitely get your business off to a good start!

 

I love my new website! It’s perfect. Amber was great to work with. She really went above and beyond to make sure that my website was exactly what I wanted. She made countless edits and tweaks to get it exactly like I envisioned, and has been great about teaching me how to do things on my own, too. I’m beyond happy that I worked with Amber for this project. I really don’t think I could be any happier. Marty Ruark

What’s included?

I believe you shouldn’t be held back from having a beautiful website because it’s too expensive. This is the time to focus on growing your business, not the time to worry about extra start-up costs. Plus, having a professional looking website right from the start will help to push your business forward faster!

My starter website design package is £650 and includes three essential pages to get you started, all based on pre-designed templates.

The template is where you save money. I’ve worked hard to design several different options for each page. Simply choose the three pages you’d like to have – out of Home, About, Services, Blog, Contact – and then choose a template for each one.

Click here to see the available templates. 

You’ll still get a personalised website because these templates will include your branding, images and text content.

All of these websites are built using WordPress which is a really flexible system and enables you to edit the website easily yourself. I’ll even provide access to my Website Wonderland course so you can learn how to update and develop the website yourself. That way we can work together on the foundations and you can add to it as much as you’d like to as your business develops.

By using WordPress, your website can easily scale with your business. Make changes to the design or add extra pages easily as your business grows.

The starter website package is less intensive than the custom website package so you get less time with me on a 1-1 basis. But that doesn’t mean you get no support at all! You’re welcome to join my client’s only Facebook group where you can ask me questions and connect with others who are either building their own website or doing the starter package too.

Click here for the nitty-gritty! - Absolutely everything that is included in the package:
• In-depth design brief and workbook for you to fill out so I know as much information about your business as possible to help me to build a website that’s perfect for you and your business

• Website within 4 weeks provided deadlines/schedule are followed (please bear in mind that there may be a waiting list to start the project)

•We use Pinterest to gather inspiration for your website so that we’re both on the same page. This isn’t just images of other people’s websites but of inspiring quotes, workspaces, photography, anything that visually displays your business

• You’ll get 3 essential pages and to start with that is all you need! It’s a brilliant starting point to your first professional website and because it’s built using WordPress, you can easily add more pages and expand the site as your business grows

• If you want to expand and grow the website yourself, then you’ll also get access to my Website Wonderland course to show you how. I’ll set up the foundations and you can build from there

• Because this package includes 3 pages based on a pre-designed template, you get a personalised professional website for a whole lot less than a completely custom website. You still get a personalised website because I’ll use your branding to create something unique to you, but the layouts are already created which saves me a lot of work structuring the site behind the scenes

• There are tons of templates for you to choose from for each page of your website and I understand that gets a bit overwhelming, so there’s a quiz you can take that will help choose the templates depending on your business and website goals. It makes the process a lot easier for you and guides us towards creating a website that makes sales!

• 2 full colour designs to choose from for the home page based on the chosen wireframe/layout

• 1 full colour design for the two remaining pages based on the chosen home page style

• 2 rounds of amendments included at each stage so that we can get the design perfect!

• Full development of the website. I take the approved designs and build a fully functional website

• So many people use their mobiles nowadays for browsing the internet. It is paramount that your website works on mobile and tablet as well as desktop, so I create a website for you that works flawlessly on all devices. Whatever device your audience chooses to use, they’ll see your website perfectly.

•You know your business the best so I ask for all text content and images to be provided by you but I’m there to help you do this every step of the way

• Favicon included (the little icon that represents your website in the address bar!)

•I’ll set up Google Analytics on your website. Don’t worry, it’s not scary or confusing! I’ll also give you information to read and understand the data so you can use Google Analytics to help influence your marketing and make your website work harder for your business.

•If you already have a website, your new website will be developed separately until they’re ready to be switched over. That way you won’t lose any traffic and anyone visiting your website can still see your content and information, not just a coming soon page

•The last thing you want is to launch a website that doesn’t work properly… I’ll make sure it’s fully tested before we launch to make sure everything is working as it should be so that you can launch with a bang and impress everyone with your fancy new site!

• SEO friendly. Full SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) is not included as this is a long and ongoing process, however I do take steps to improve your SEO where possible e.g. installing an SEO plugin and providing alternative tags for images. If you’d like to work on this further, I can provide details of businesses who specialise in this

• Integration with your social media pages so website visitors can easily find where they can follow and keep in touch with you

• Contact form provided as standard so that website visitors can get in touch with you super easily

• When I mention hosting and domain name, most people recoil in fear. Don’t worry, I sort all of that out for you. If you don’t already have hosting and domain name then I set that up for you with Siteground. The first year is free, then it’s charged at £15 per year for your domain name and £8.95/month or £90/year for hosting

• Access to a client’s only Facebook group where you can ask questions and get support

Keeping your website safe

I’ll install the Wordfence security plugin on your website to keep it safe and secure.

Wordfence installs a firewall to keep your website from getting hacked. It also keeps track of what updates need to be done so that you can update as soon as possible to the most secure versions of your plugins, themes and WordPress core.

Process

As easy as 1, 2, 3 …4!

Planning and Preparation

I have a design brief and workbook that needs to be filled out before we can start the project. This ensures we have absolutely everything we need to get going with the project from week 1 and we’ll finish on or before week 4! This is the step where you’ll choose your pages and your template for each page.

Designs

Once you have chosen the template you’d like to use for each page, I create the designs using the template and your own branding and content. Please note, this is not a custom site – the website is based solely on the template. If you need extra functionality or a different layout, that would be a custom site.

Build

When all designs are approved, I work on building the actual website using WordPress and a theme called Divi. You’ll receive access to my Website Wonderland course at the end of the project to help you learn how to use WordPress and Divi yourself so that you can update your website.

Feedback and Testing

Not to be underestimated, this step is where we tie up all the loose ends. Do all the links work? Does the website perform well on mobile devices? Are all the images displaying? Are all the fonts and text sizes correct?
