How does it work?
After you’ve decided to work with me, we will book an initial CCS. Prior to our session, I will send you a questionnaire via email, to collect some basic information ahead of time, so that we can dive right into the juicy bits when we meet. Once I have an idea of what you’re looking for, I can get to work on your drafted website, branding, account set ups, etc.
When drafts are complete, I forward everything to you for perusal. You have the option of responding to that email with any needed changes and feedback (preferred so that I can refer to it often as I make the requested updates), or setting up a CCS.
For websites, Etsy, and Mailchimp services, we may also book a training session, if requested, to walk you through the basics of running these platforms.
What kinds of clients do you accept?
My focus is on supporting small, heart-centered businesses, with a special interest in spiritually based products and services.
What is a Creative Collab Session (CCS)?
This is a one-on-one session with me, either over the phone or on Skype. This gives you a chance to tell me all about your vision, and I can gather the info I need to get to work. For some, this can simply be a brainstorming session, a pep-talk, or a tutorial via screenshare. These are unstructured spaces of time dedicated to the free flowing of creative juices – the Awen.
Do you have a degree?
Nope. But I have years upon years of hands-on, practical experience. Through trial and error, I have learned ways to get a business off the ground with minimal financial investment. And at a fraction of the cost.
Are you a graphic designer?
No. I just love to create things that are visually pleasing, and I happen to be pretty good at it.
Do you do coding/programming?
No. If you are seeking a complex system requiring specialty services like coding, you’ll need to reach out to someone who is trained in that field.
Why do I have to choose from Wix, Weebly, or WordPress?
In my experience, these are the three most user-friendly options, and I like to keep it simple for you – you already have a business to run, and you won’t have time to doddle with a website once you’re at full steam!
How long does it take to get my website up and running?
This depends mostly upon the complexity of the design. The simpler we keep it, the quicker it will be completed!
My website is built, and my shop is open… now what?
Through the process of assisting with your manifestation efforts, I will have shown you how to navigate the basics of running your website, your shop, and any other platforms you’ve opted into. It is my ultimate goal to empower you to have full control over your business, instead of relying on outside people (like me) to do it for you. Of course, I am happy to book a Creative Collab Session should you need fresh designs, need a hand with your website, or want to expand in some way.
Can I have a members-only area on my website?
You bet! We can discuss this in detail during your CCS, and decide which platform will best serve you.
I don’t want to use Etsy to sell my products – is there another option?
Of course! The most appropriate platform will depend upon your product/service, your level of comfort with technology, and the number of product listings you’ll require. We can talk it out during your CCS.
What payment methods do you accept?
I accept PayPal, Square, and Interac E-transfers.
What additional fees should I prepare for?
My rates do not include fees associated with launching and maintaining your small business. Here are some (not all) of the additional costs that may be involved:
- Hosting package
- Domain name purchase
- Etsy listing fees
- Stock image purchases
- Special permits required by your locality
- Business licenses/registration
- Ordering of print materials
