On the appointed date I’ll take everything you’ve given to me and add it to your chosen template, modifying as needed – and you’ll get your website within one week (often faster)!

Let's Do It!

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.

Let Me Break It Down For You


Choosing Your Platform

Maybe you came here knowing that you want a SquareSpace website, or a WordPress website. But, if you need help deciding, I have a blog post that discusses the pros and cons of each platform here.

If the pros and cons don’t make a decision clear for you, then I suggest moving on to choosing a template. If you find a SquareSpace or a WordPress template you love, that’s the one you go with.

If you are aiming to create a blog website – one where the blog is the central focus – then I strongly suggest WordPress with a Creativo theme.


Selecting A Template

Nitty gritty details: SquareSpace has templates, Divi WordPress theme has layouts and Creativo WordPress theme has demos – as if this wasn’t complicated enough!

Once you’re ready to choose a template, focus first and foremost on the layout of the template. The images can be changed. So can the colors and the fonts, so the overall layout is the most important thing to pay attention to.


Schedule Your Build

You’ll schedule (and purchase) your build on my calendar. This is the start date of the actual build – from this date you will have a completed site within three business days!

Note that you need to have all of your website materials available to me on or before the start date. Need to know what that includes? Download the checklist here.


Pull Everything Together

If you’re ready to jump right in, you can send me everything on the checklist right away.

If you booked a start date a few days (or weeks) out, then you can take your time finalizing copy, branding and image selections.

Instructions for submitting your materials will be sent to you upon booking, but know that you can always just email everything to me if that’s easiest for you.

Want to see the prep work checklist now? You can download it here.


Time to Launch!

Once I’ve installed your template and added all of your content, I’ll send you an email with instructions for accessing and publishing your website. I’ll also send you a video tutorial for making minor changes and edits.

If you have a WordPress website, I’ll have designed the website directly in your hosting account.

If you have a SquareSpace access, I’ll transfer site ownership to you at this stage. (All you have to do is create a SquareSpace account and click a link!)

ready, set…

website launch!


I’ve Got Your Back

Once I hand the website over to you, you have 48 hours of support (skipping weekend days) to email me any questions you might have.

I’ll also give you access to online course materials relevant to your website (SquareSpace, Divi or Creativo) so that you can learn how to DIY whatever you need going forward. And of course I’m always here to help with future projects!

Are we going to do this thing, or what?

It’s a no-brainer…

I’ve worked with all of these platforms and tech tools for years. This is how you get a quality website that doesn’t cost you your first born child, or your sanity.

Just choose your template, send over your content, and let me take care of the rest!

Frequently Asked Questions

Wondering about something else? Contact me here.

What do I need to get started?

You should have your content ready to go by the build date. If you have all of your copy (website text), images, logo and brand guidance (colors, fonts suggestions) ready to go, then you’re ready! (You can get my full Prep Work guide here).

You can also book a build date a week or so out so that you have time to create these materials.

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! I offer free content, paid courses and 1:1 services in pretty much every area of online business from website design to online marketing.

As a build client, you also get access to my reduced hourly rate for any future work you need done. (Previous clients get $50/hour – those who come to me just for hourly work get a $75/hour rate).

Will my website really be ready in one week?

Yes! The caveat is depending on availability when you book your build, you may have to wait for the work to begin. Also, because I have a toddler and other things going on in my life, weekends are not included in the 1-week period.

What's included?

The template website gets you a build based on a pre-made template of your choice.

You get:

  • The 4 pages most businesses need (Home, About, Services, Contact)
  • Contact form configured
  • Template will be adapted to include your provided colors and fonts
  • Email Opt-in added (instructions to connect with MailChimp or Squarespace campaigns will be provided)

Additional pages are $100 each and will be billed separately prior to the build start.

E-commerce / stores are not included in this option.

Will my website look exactly the template that I choose?

Pretty much!

I’ll make small changes as needed to adapt the template to your content so that it looks as good as possible.

If you choose to use the templates inherent fonts and colors, it will look almost exactly the same. If you give me different colors and font choices, you’ll put your own branding spin on the template to make it your own.

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 you 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.

Chill that champagne!

Your website is just 1-week away.
