noun | web·site dou·la
A website companion who guides others through the use of technology; provides support from conception to completion; encourages using technology to make life easier.
I am a seasoned technology enthusiast, website design & developer and self-described Website Doula. I assist clients will all manner of technology issues and help them USE technology to enhance, not hinder their life.
Much like traditional doulas, I provide guidance and support to my clients, but with a different specialty. Traditional doulas help clients through the process of birthing a child. I help clients build their business website and learn how to take care of it for years to come.
Benefits of working with me:
- More time to work IN your business, not ON it.
- Less worrying and confusion in trying to learn technical jargon and skills.
- Confidence that your presence in the world is the best that it can be. I know from personal experience how website shame can affect your business everywhere.
- Being able to take advantage of all the tech tips and tricks that I know (Hint: I’m your secret weapon).
Your custom design package includes:
My Unique Process
My process may be a little different… I start out working directly in a fresh WordPress site with a Genesis Child Theme from StudioPress and give you behind-the-scenes access to it. At first, I will load it up with the information that you initially give me but over time we grow it together with what we discover in our weekly Strategy Calls. Usually after a couple of weeks is when I start with the design of the brand and customization of your WordPress Theme. I tailor it to fit your brand design and vision. This gives me time to get to know YOU, your personality, your tastes which gives me the ability to have the brand design be a true reflection of your true essence. Your website design will be based on my design questionnaire, our design consultations & your feedback to ensure a result that you will LOVE!
Mobile Responsive Design
Your website design will be customized for any screen size. Visitors browsing your site from other device types account for an increasingly larger % of website traffic as time goes on. Your theme is mobile responsive and adjusts to various browser sizes that will make browsing from these platforms an enjoyable experience.
Your choice of colors, fonts & images
I will customize the child theme by using your chosen color palette, images, and fonts. I will provide helpful tools to discover your options and provide feedback on your design vision and choices. Your template includes up to 3 free Google fonts. Also includes a custom favicon image.
