I mean it’s not awful, but it’s just not sharing your organizations message well, right?
It’s totally fine, I know how hard it is when you’re starting out to get a website that you love, but you’ve realized it’s time to step it up and have a site you love.
But it’s not like you have all the time in the world to do all that, keep up on social media, build new relationships, share your organization's mission, manage financial and legal stuff, plus what you actually do for your nonprofit.
I know it can be overwhelming thinking about designing your website, but guess what...
It doesn’t have to be overwhelming to get a new website. It can actually be (dare I say) fun?.
I mean think about it - you could try and do it all on your own, taking time away from what you love and still not ending up loving the site.
Or… we could work together to create a website that not only fits your branding to a T, but directs your visitors exactly where you want them to go.

How does it work?
Before we dive into your website, you’ll receive a planning workbook with homework that’ll help us plan your website and your goals.
We'll hop on a kick-off call to go over your homework, inspiration, and goals to make sure we're on the same page. By the end of the week I'll get started on the design process.
This whole week is dedicated to working on the design for your site. During this time you’ll be collecting all of your content and setting up any new accounts (email marketing or social media).
Alrighty! All of your content for your site will be due (images and text). We'll hop on a quick call to go over any loose ends or major questions.
During this week I'll be adding your content to your site and making sure everything looks and works perfectly!
Get ready to launch! This is the final week where we'll hop on a call go through the entire site to make sure it's exactly what you want, then we'll have a brief training session where you can ask any questions about updating the site and future additions you may want to make to the site on your own.
A few of my favorite sites
What others have asked
What do you mean by “custom buttons and graphics”?
Based on your branding (fonts, colors, graphics, etc) I like to design graphics for websites so that your branding flows smoothly onto your website. Many times buttons that come in templates don't fit the style of your brand, causing them to stand out (in the wrong way). By designing custom buttons and graphics it not only helps to take away the cookie-cutter template feel, but also ensures that your brand's personality shines through.
Is copywriting included?
Currently copywriting is not included, however I do look at all content to make sure it's strong enough to capture your audience's attention and cause them to take action. In the onboarding phase of your project I will look over your current site and make notes as to what changes could be made. Copywriting is such an important part of your site, which is why I do encourage my clients to hire a copywriter so that they can have the best conversions. During the design phase you'll be shown the new layout of your site which will help you determine how much content you'll need on your site (calls to action, buttons, headers, etc.) - if you feel that you don't currently have enough content on your site we can talk about working on that together (for an additional fee), or I can suggest a copywriter you can hire.
Are themes/templates included?
Squarespace and Showit sites have free themes available that come with your account, while Wordpress requires you purchase one. The purchase of a theme is not included in the packages, however I'm more than happy customize a theme that you've purchased for Squarespace or Showit. If you'd like to use Wordpress, part of my process is to help you find a theme that will work best for your needs and have an easy backend to maintain after the launch.
What else do I need to do before the project start date?
One of the biggest pieces of homework you will have (and may already have completed!) is to purchase a domain name and a hosting plan before our project start date. If you need help figuring out who to use let me know and I can recommend several sites to check out. Before the project start date you'll also have homework to work on - a Website Planning Workbook and secret Pinterest board. I recommend that you add in 2 weeks before your project start date to work on your workbook as there is a lot of content that will not only help with the design of your website, but there may be questions in there about your business that you haven't yet taken time to define (i.e. mission statement). While your content isn't due until half-way through the project, I do recommend adding some extra time in before the start date so that you don't feel rushed to complete your homework.
Do your rates include the native/working files?
No. There are several reasons for this, including licensing restrictions on stock, fonts and other resources. If you would like the native files I can send you links to the fonts and other resources used in your project for purchase. There are some projects where the source (native) files may be included or they may be available for purchase. If you're interested in receiving the original files please let me know and we'll see what we can do. Read this article on copyrights + native files.
Are there any hidden fees?
There are only ever additional charges made if any premium features will be needed for your website. Premium features may include images, fonts, plugins, templates. licenses or copywriting. If you’re using Wordpress please note that the theme is not included in the package rates above. Any and all purchases will be discussed before purchasing. send us a message and we can see if we have any last minute availability.
