The business is Kara + Co Creative and Kara Co-Creative – either way you look at it, we’re doing this together.
My goal is simple: to take the guesswork out of your website and online business systems so that you can start earning an income through the work that you love.
I help solopreneurs create simple, effective online businesses so that they can create more flexibility and freedom for themselves. I also love to help other freelancers get their websites and services optimized so that they can create more profitable businesses.
Kara +Co can also help with graphic design, online business management, and with the help of my collaborative partners, just about anything you need when it comes to running an online business.
And because an online business requires more tech than just the website, I’ve become adept at building out simple systems for email marketing, online courses and more, so that you can focus on doing the work that you love and manage your online business yourself (if that’s your goal!).
I can help you to take the qualities that make you and your offerings unique and distill them into visuals that will help create resonance between you and your brand.
Creating a business that is both marketable and something that you’ll love showing up for every day takes a bit of strategy and a whole lot of intentionality.
I’m a collaborative designer that works with you to create a website that looks like YOU (not like me!), that is both pretty and guided by effective strategy.
Your website is just one piece of your online business. I can work with you to develop sales systems, marketing processes, online products and much more.
We’re small, but mighty.
Hey, there. I’m the “I” in all this website copy!
I got into website design and development because when I was first starting out (as a health coach way back when), I needed a website myself. I had no clue where to start (so I get it!) and had to redo the website I made sooo many times before it was actually an effective asset for my business (and I can shorten that curve for you big time).
With Kara +Co Creative, I’ve brought together all of the resources that I wish I had when I was first starting out so that you can design your logo, fine tune your copy, design + build your website, create an online course or set up e-commerce, manage your email marketing and social media (and more!) all in one place.
You might say my website/computer tech skills were inherited – since Lee is my mama! (Which, you may have guessed from this photo, taken at my wedding). Lee holds a BS in Computer Science from the University of California. She spent a good part of her career custom coding websites in HTML and CMS systems like Joomla, before turning to something she really loves: graphic design.
In addition to helping with those extra features that make your website look polished and professional, Lee can create logos and other brand assets. You can learn more about why graphic design is so important to website development here.
In case you’re wondering, I do have a college degree (History, Anthropology) and half of a masters (International Relations – Counterterrorism). I don’t use either much.
