Website Design & Development
You want a website that you love seeing every day, that represents you and your purpose and draws new customers like bees to honey? But you’ve been struggling, overwhelmed & paralyzed by option overload when it comes to the design and tech side of it?
You also might have heard horror stories about designers bailing or taking forever. You worry about the money you’re ready to invest being given to the right person, you fear being let down or dissatisfied, and you don’t want to be reliant on someone to make updates every time you want to make a change.
The most frustrating part? You understand the value of having a beautiful website. You know that it’s an important marketing tool and that it can help you attract your dream clients because it will help you build trust and establish you as an expert.
I get it! I have over 20 years’ experience working in digital marketing, but I’m also a yogi. As a yoga teacher myself, I understand that you want to spend your time on the mat and not in front of the computer. I can help you trouble-shoot specific topics that other website designers simply don’t understand, like the best way to promoting retreats or adding your schedule to your website.
Let me do the hard work for you so you can finally have the website you’ve been dreaming of to show of your business and attract new clients.
HERE’S WHAT THE PROCESS LOOKS LIKE:
The project officially starts after we discussed all preliminary questions, have a clear scope and you approved the proposal and paid a deposit.
2. Getting everything together
You deliver all existing materials (for example logo, existing brand guidelines, images, text, videos, testimonials…), your hosting login details (if you don’t have hosting yet I will guide you through the process of setting it up) and social media links.
3. Brand style guide + website structure
I then develop a brand style guide for your new website with fonts, colors and signature elements like patterns or photo style and define the navigation structure for your new website.
4. Building your website
After we’ve agreed on the style guide and website structure I set up the development environment on your server and start building your homepage. I design and develop your content in WordPress, install plugins and widgets, contact forms and more juicy techy stuff.
5. Copy writing
In the meantime, you will be writing your copy with the help of templates that I provide. I’ll then coach you through refining it and optimize and edit it where necessary.
6. Testing and going live
When I’m done putting everything together you’ll get a preview link and we test everything, fix what needs to be fixed, add some last-minute things or take stuff out and… go live!
7. After care
After your website is live I’m not going to leave you stranded. I’ll show you how everything works so you can update it yourself, and I’m available to help and support you.
As a new small business owner I really enjoyed working with Susanne in developing my website. Susanne was easy to communicate with and listened to what I wanted, and most importantly, made recommendations and provided options when I didn’t know what I wanted. She knows her stuff and has come up with some great and cost effective solutions for my website. She’s also taught me how to modify and update content myself so that I don’t depend on her beyond the development process.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long does it take?
I aim to finish a project in 4 weeks, but it truly depends on how quickly you are able to put together all the content I need, such as images and copy.
What website platforms do you use?
At the moment I exclusively use self-hosted WordPress and the premium Avada theme.
What about hosting?
If you already have a hosting provider you just need to give me the access details and I’ll set up your new website there. If you’re just getting started, I recommend Siteground for hosting and will walk you through the process of setting it up. Or you can decide to host your website with me and I’ll also take care of your backups and WordPress, plugin and theme maintenance.
Can you move my Squarespace or Wix Website to WordPress?
I’m happy to do that! We can export and then import your existing content, point your domain to your new website and set up redirects for your old links. There’s an extra fee and it depends on how many pages and posts you have.
I need something that’s not included here
Let’s chat and I’ll see if I’m able to help you with that and how much it would cost.
How do I pay?
You will pay in 3 installments. The first payment is due before we start, the second after your homepage is finished and the third after the website is live. You’ll receive an invoice for each payment that you can pay through PayPal or bank transfer.
