It just means you have unique website needs.
Just because you have a full-time job, doesn’t mean your business doesn’t deserve to have a professional website that lets your prospective clients know what you do and how you can help them. In fact, your website is even more important because you can’t be in two places at one time. It’s why I always say that your website has to do the job of an employee.
I'm sure when you got that idea for your side hustle, web designer wasn't on your long list of to-do's was it? It definitely wasn’t mine when I started my first business back in 2005 as a wedding and event planner. But as luck would have it, things didn’t go well and out of necessity, I was forced to learn how to manage my website. Through many tears, frustration, classes, and amazing mentors, I learned how to design, code, and build websites for women just like you!
Whether you’re just starting your business or you’ve had your business for years, your side hustle is your passion project and just because you’ve got a 9-5 job, doesn’t make your business any less important or any less real.
"What's your website?," or "How can I find you online?"
At some point, when you’re at a show or networking event, the question is going to come up,
And what's your reaction to that question? Are you happy because you know your website is doing everything you need it to do? Or, is that sinking feeling at the pit of your stomach making you sick because you know your website
Looks as if you made it
Isn't really helping you. It's just taking up internet space.
Makes you feel embarrassed and that people probably won't take you seriously.
But, guess what? It doesn't have to be that way!
You may feel a bit less confident because you’re worried that people won’t take your business seriously because you do have a 9-5 job (which isn’t true, but isn’t it amazing how those self-sabotaging thoughts can seem so real)? Don’t add the stress of worrying about if your website is doing what you need it to do!
You know your clients, you know your business, and you've got the passion, but you need to translate all of this and more to your online home.
It's time to have a website that can do the work when you're at work, with a client, having fun with family and friends, or just enjoying a day at the spa! You need your website to be your employee!
Does this sound familiar?
When you're at your 9 to 5, you're wondering how you can sneak in some time at work to work on your business.
You have late nights and early mornings working on your business.
You're not fully present when you're with family or friends because your website isn't designed to be your employee so you're worried about what you're missing.
You created your first website or tried to create it and the more you look at it, the more you cringe because you know it looks like you created it.
When you're with a client, in the back of your mind you wonder if you've missed any inquiries or the time it will take you to respond to someone who's shown interest in working with you.
If you hear one more time about all the stuff you need to do and should be doing, you're going to scream. 'Cause let's be honest...you just want to do the thing that brings you joy. Isn't that why you started your biz in the first place?
You're overwhelmed with all that comes with maintaining your website because you aren't sure what you need or if it's doing what you need it to do.
Is that a yes, I hear?
Then let's work together to create that wonderful online home so that you can spend your time doing what you love!
What’s it like working together on your website?
So I'm just gonna go ahead and put it out there...it's work. But, we're gonna make it fun and laugh all the way! All work and no fun or laughter makes for a very unpleasant experience, in anything, wouldn't you say?
I'm not your typical web designer because I don't believe in just throwing up your online home. There's so much strategy and data behind a website and when it's done right, you're going to scream and be overjoyed with excitement.
Communication is key
We'll communicate ...often! We can’t complete your website if we don't and you don't know what's going on, right? How icky and un-businesslike is it to not know what's going on with such an important part of your business? You have the right to know every step of the way what's going on. Period.
It’s just you and me!
You get my attention. I don't take on more than 2 clients at a time. For me, working with only a couple of clients at a time gives more room for creativity and gets rid of the crazy juggling act.
I'm your designer and developer.
As your website designer, I create the look of your website. It does not just about the look. We talk about your goals and strategy.
As your website developer, I work under the hood to make sure all the pretty and strategy works. That means all the functionality, all the clicking, all the analytics, and much more.
Can’t wait wait to meet you!
