How much could a lackluster website or brand costing your business? 

Did you know that website visitors create their first impression of your brand in the first .05 seconds that they're on your site?  Crazy, right?!  First impressions are said to be 94% design related, and the better the first impression, the longer visitors stick around.  

If your brand is 'what people say about you when you're not in the room', are your website and branding doing you justice?

Let's make that first impression count!

I’m here to give you the grace to spend your time on the parts of your business that you absolutely love by taking the tough, overwhelming, time consuming, technical parts of your biz off your hands.  Let me do what I do best so that you can focus on what you do best! 

I love creating brands & websites that look & feel like the unique businesses they represent, & serve as the perfect first look into the experiences your potential clients can expect to have in working with you.  Polished brands that work for and with you, wooing your ideal client and making them so excited to have found you, perhaps before they even have the chance to meet you in person.  Let's build a brand together that you're proud to have represent you, EVEN when you're not in the room yourself.

Let me join your team so we can create some brand magic together!

Salome Sanchez, Town and country weddings

I design websites on the Showit 5 platform.  As a former Wordpress designer, I fell in love with Showit because of its incredible customizability, visual design capabilities, mobile responsiveness, and ease of SEO optimization.  If you can imagine it, you can create it exactly as you envision it on Showit.  The design capabilities are literally endless.  Showit utilizes an intuitive drag and drop builder that makes it easy for users to swap out photos and content as their businesses evolve, without fear of 'messing up their site' or having to learn to code.  Showit's customer service is amazing, and there is a wonderfully generous Facebook community that offers support outside of Showit office hours.  While Showit was originally designed as a platform for photographers to optimally showcase their stunning portfolios and services, it is now used by businesses of all kinds.  

At the end of every website design and launch, I offer a client tutorial, either in person or through a shared computer screen session, to walk clients through the back end of their site together.  These tutorials empower most clients to feel comfortable updating their sites on their own as they need, without having to rehire me to make these changes.  I'm always available for questions, and am happy to help down the road as questions pop up.  If clients would prefer not to self-maintain their sites, I'm happy  to create a maintenance package to meet unique needs as they arise.  Showit offers great customer service and support, has a fantastic library of help documents and Youtube tutorial videos, and a very supportive Facebook community that are always more than happy to help out a fellow Showiteer.  You've got this!  I promise.  

Showit requires a membership that can be paid monthly or yearly at a slight discount.  There are 3 tiers of membership that vary in price, and I'm happy to discuss which tier is the best fit for your site needs.  This membership also covers your site hosting expenses, so you will not need an outside hosting service like BlueHost, SiteGround, etc.  Membership prices and details can be found HERE.  This membership is not included in your Digital Grace website design investment.

All website clients are responsible for purchasing their own domain registration.  Not sure what this means or where to purchase a domain?  No worries!  Just let me know, I'm happy to advise you.  Website hosting is included in your Showit membership, so no need to purchase additional hosting from an outside hosting service. 

Showit offers both free and paid for templates.  These templates give you a solid framework from which to build or customize your site.  You can easily change the color palette and fonts for the site, and rearrange or add to it as you need.  Templates make for a more cost effective and faster website design process.  You can think of the difference between customizing a template vs building a custom site as a similar difference as renovating or redecorating a house vs building one from scratch.  I would love to work with you to customize a template to your unique business needs!  I do this often.  Together, we'll make any of the beautiful Showit templates feel like it was made just for you.  Have a question about this or want a quote?  Shoot me a note HERE.

Absolutely!  Your blog's visual aesthetic will be built through Showit with the same aesthetic as the rest of your site, and will act essentially as a 'blog theme'.  You'll write and publish your blogs through the Wordpress platform, giving you the best of both worlds with both Showit's design and Wordpress' blogging capabilities.  If you'd like to transfer an old or current blog over to your new site, the Showit support team will take care of migrating it over to your new site for you, so that launch goes off without a hitch!  

Of course!  It will work and look just as gorgeous as your desktop site does.  Your site will not only be mobile responsive, but can also be adjusted and optimized separately from the desktop version to create the best mobile experience possible.  

Every project is a little different, but typically here are some timelines: 
*Branding packages -- 2-3 weeks
*Custom Showit 5 website design packages -- 3-4 weeks
*The Whole Package: Custom Branding and Website Design -- 5-7 weeks
Yup!  That's right, you can have a brand new brand or website design in a month! 
These timelines are dependent on client content being ready to go, and on timely client feedback on design drafts shared.  Want to get your new design on the Digital Grace Design schedule?  Send me a message, or start a chat with me on the bottom right corner of your screen!

How do your payment plans work?

As a small business owner myself, I totally understand that branding or a new website are a big investment, and I don't want you to have to put the project off while you save up a lump sum amount.  Think of all the value your new brand and website could bring your business in the interim that you'd be missing out on!  No fun, right?  As a result, I offer payment plans for all of my packages, ranging from 2-8 months of installments.  How many installments you have is totally up to you!  And once our work is complete and your new brand or website is ready to be shared with the world, we launch -- no waiting until you've paid off your total investment!  Pretty cool, right?  I want to make the choice to invest in your business and growth an easier one, so I hope that this helps!  Have a question about payment plans?  Shoot me a note HERE.
