Stylish & Affordable Web Design
One Page Wonder
Not every business wants a full website, sometimes all you really need is one of Squarespace's beautiful cover pages with some basic information, perhaps a video or audio, and links to your social media. This is, for instance, a great solution for businesses who use Facebook as their main online hub but who still want a professional looking web home.
I am a big believer in transparency and simplicity, a full website includes up to five pages, additional pages are charged at a flat rate of $175 per page. This pricing model helps me keep my rates affordable for small businesses while reducing the chance of scope creep. Not sure how many pages you need? We will discuss this during your free consultation.
Here are some real life examples of what a website might cost, click on the images to visit the sites:

Optional Add Ons
Logos, Photography, SEO and more...
Don't have a logo? No problem, I will create a lovely logo based on your initials without breaking the bank. And if you want something a little more I can recommend a wonderful professional graphic designer.
Use my Photos
I have a big library of stunning photos that you may choose to use for your website. You can either look through my photos and pick your own or I can select them for you. This license covers as many as you want.
Search Engine Optimization
Squarespace is already optimized for search engines and I will make sure that any content based configurations are implemented correctly. Some businesses want to do more and I can help with optimizing things outside of Squarespace, on the search engine side. This includes submitting and verifying your website with Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools and 301 redirects if needed. If you have a physical office or store location I will also get your business listing into Google Maps.
Import your Wordpress blog
One of the reasons why many people hesitate to make the switch is that they have an existing blog on Wordpress and are intimidated by the thought of exporting and importing it, especially if it is a large blog which sometimes requires that the Wordpress export is split into multiple files. This fee also includes the optional implementation of 301 redirects to direct visitors from your old blog to your new one. It does not include tidying up the actual posts which may lose some of their formatting depending on how Wordpress compiles the export file.
All Squarespace sites have a very nice and user friendly built-in commerce platform, allowing you to sell physical or digital products as well as services online. Includes up to 15 products, for more additional fees may apply.
For a bilingual website with up to 10 pages please add this fee to your package. For more pages additional fees may apply. Please note that I don't do translations. Click here to see an example of a bilingual site I designed.
