website launch!

A Fully Customized Website

With Copy and Brand Strategy Support

With Everything You Need to Get Started Online

Even If You Have No Idea Where to Begin

You need a website - and HELP.

→ you’re tired of interviewing designers only to find out they only help with one piece of the process

→ you have no idea what you need to get this thing off the ground

→ you want some guidance around your branding and your copy

→ you want some accountability in putting this whole thing together

OR, you're simply working on a budget

→ you can't afford a branding expert, a business coach, a website designer and a developer

→ still, you don’t want to skimp on quality

→ you don't want to sink money into a website you won't be able to edit later

→ you’ve been wracking your brain for a solution that gets you a website without blowing up your startup costs

I've got good news for you!

THAT ISN'T TOO MUCH TO ASK

01

Schedule a discovery call.

Getting a new business out there is not an easy task and you’ll want to make sure that I’m the right fit to guide you through the process. We’ll get to know each other and make sure we want to partner on this launch.

02

Book your build.

You’ll schedule your build date and I’ll create a calendar of milestones for each piece of your website puzzle (branding, copy, launch plan). We’ll break it up into pieces and I’ll provide actionable steps and feedback as we go.

03

New website!

Once we’ve completed all the materials together, I’ll go ahead and create your website. You’ll have opportunities to review drafts to make sure the site looks just like you want it to. Once we’re done you’ll have a fully customized website with clear copy and all the systems in place to launch.

Let's Talk!

Don't take it from me...

As a new health and wellness coach, I was nervous about being able to find a web designer who was enjoyable to work with and could make my vision come alive within a quick time-frame. Kara recommended a talented graphic designer on her team and I ended up with a logo that I feel encompasses my entire brand. But the best thing I got out of working with Kara was a website I absolutely LOVE beyond words.

-Casey Kaczmarek

I HIGHLY recommend working with Kara if you are in need of setting up a quality website but have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA how to make your vision come to life! Kara took all of my direction and vision to heart and created a BEAUTIFUL website that captures the essence of who I am and my brand! I feel like not only do I have a beautiful website that I could have never created myself but also the tools to start to begin to manage the website myself thanks to Kara’s guidance and support.

-Hope Griffin

Imagine...

… someone who has built hundreds of websites hands you a list of everything you need for your website – no guesswork here!

… they help you craft your copy, your brand vision and review everything before it’s ready to be part of the website

… you just turn over all of your website materials to a professional and skip all of the tech headaches

… that professional (hint: she’s me!) sets up everything you need so that you don’t need to do anything

… and finally she shows you your finished website and tells you the exact steps you need to take to launch it

… wait there’s more! You receive support from someone who actually knows what they’re doing, get lifetime access to a lower rate for any paid updates, and you get access to relevant online courses for your website and online biz!

Are we going to do this thing, or what?

I’ve worked with all of these platforms and tech tools for years. This is how you get a quality website and all the pieces that make a website great without costing you your first born child, or your sanity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Wondering about something else? Contact me here.

What do I need to get started?

Just an idea! If you have a business or personal brand you’re looking to bring to life online, I’ll walk you through all the steps required to bring it to life and we’ll execute on each piece together. We can go over what this process will look like for you on our exploratory call.

How much does hosting cost?

Squarespace: Squarespace hosting is about $220/year. If you book your build with me you get 20% off the first year, so you’ll pay about $185 the first year.

WordPress: My recommendation for WordPress hosting is SiteGround. They’re pricing is $85-$120/year depending on the plan you select. If you already have hosting, I’ll also work with Bluehost and GoDaddy accounts.

I've never had a website before, will this work for me?

Yes! I take care of all the difficult setup and show you everything you need to know to maintain your site going forward.

I work with easy-to-use editing tools so that you can make changes to your website yourself. I also give you access to relevant courses so that you can learn how to create custom pages in the future!

What if I need more help?

I’m here for you! During our exploration call, we’ll map out all of the areas you’ll need support in and how we’ll get this thing done. I’m able to offer support in business strategy, branding, copy, website design, marketing plans AND setting up all the tech to support each piece.

Will this really get me EVERYTHING I need to launch a website?

Yes! I’m always upfront about the fact that I don’t consider myself an expert in many of the areas that I work in. I can refer you to top copywriters, brand strategists, marketing experts and business coaches. BUT if you’re looking for a one-stop solution to get you up and running with a beautiful and functional website with clear messaging and a look you love, I’m your girl.

What's included?

We’ll discuss everything you need on our exploratory call and you’ll receive a detailed scope of work prior to deciding to work together so that you’ll know exactly what you’re getting and what it costs.

Most Guided builds start with a Business Clarity session – a one hour deep dive into your goals, strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes.

This allows me to craft a roadmap for strategy, branding, copy, marketing and any systems we’ll need built out a long with the website.

Do you offer a money-back guarantee?

I do not offer refunds for any work done as part of my 1:1 services. I am always open to having a discussion and helping you troubleshoot things so that we can find a solution.

If you’re not sure if this is the right fit for you, I do offer a money-back guarantee on all of my digital courses and tools for DIYers.

Ready to co-create your dream website?

Let’s make sure we’re a good fit. You can book your exploratory call here.

The call is 100% obligation-free. If we decide to work together, a guided build starts at $5,000. It’s not often more and once we speak, I’ll make sure to customize and price it according to your exact needs.
