Checklist

Build a website you can manage yourself

There’s a reason self-hosted WordPress websites are the gold standard – when set up correctly it’s the most user-friendly and personalized platform for creating and connecting with people.

I’m excited to show you how to get started and save you tons of time and hassle by guiding you along the way.

Checkout the program, Build Your Website Essentials to get started on your website project.

Your setup is critical to having a successful website – one that affords you the time and energy to be creative.

Here's the 5 things you need, including links and instructions to get started with a professional WordPress website.

Stop wasting time on cheap platforms that keep you hunched over your computer solving technical problems. Your time, focus, and genius are more valuable than saving twenty bucks here and here.

I can show you the exact tools and configuration used on professional websites that see hundreds of thousands of visitors a day, and a few years ago would have cost you at least 10k to build yourself.

It's 2020, you don't need a basement of web developers to run a top-notch operation online – but you do need to know what tools to use, what to avoid, and the strategies that will grow your audience...

Why? So you can focus on doing what you love.

Case Study, Eve's Cidery

Eve's Cidery is a truly farm-based business. The owners, Autumn and Ezra, are involved in all the day-to-day operations, from planting and pruning to pressing and bottling cider. After I created their new website redesign, they wanted monthly support so they could start building an online business and become less reliant on distributors.

Eve's Mockup

A well-designed and well-managed website can help a business become more sustainable. The Maple Care Plan was developed with small businesses like Eve's Cidery in mind. Autumn and Ezra get regular reports so they can be informed on every change, as well as important stats about their traffic and sales.
