Here are a few of my favorite web design projects from the last year!
I was absolutely blown away with the professional designs I received. Right from the beginning, Ciara has systems in place so that she can really learn and understand your business and its values before starting your project, and her interpretation of what I wanted was spot on. Cannot recommend more highly. Thank you again! I love my logo.
Working with Ciara was truly a joy. She is talented, professional, and extremely efficient. I did not have an aesthetic in mind but Ciara was able to guide me in the right direction. She was very receptive to what I wanted and the turnaround was very fast. I can’t say enough how much I love my new logo. I would work with Ciara again in a heartbeat.
She captured my style and “tone” perfectly and created something SO much better than I ever expected (and WAY WAY WAY better than what I’ve been cobbling together with my complete lack of design sense). I can’t recommend her highly enough. If you have ANY design needs, January May is the solution you’re looking for. THANK YOU, Ciara!!!
I am over the moon with the work Ciara did for me and quite a few of my clients have commented on how lovely the new branding is. I feel it has really helped my company stand out. It was so easy working with Ciara and so quick, I couldn’t have asked for better service and she is now my company’s official graphic designer! I genuinely enjoyed working with her and I very much look forward to working with her again soon on my next project.
Not unless you want me to! If you need to offload your web maintenance, I’m totally here for it. I charge $70 per month to update your plugins and theme, fix broken links, and make quick fixes if something breaks.
If you’re not about that monthly maintenance bill life – I’ve got you, girl! You’ll get access to my client portal where you can find video tutorials on how to keep your site updated and how to make DIY changes.
Sooooooo many reasons. Site speed, functionality, customization ability, and lots more. I build on WordPress because I strongly believe that it’s the best all-around option for most businesses and bloggers.
Do I think Squarespace and ShowIt are bad? Not at all! They’re just not my platforms of choice for most people’s websites. There are instances where I might recommend one or the other, but usually my first rec is going to be WordPress.
I never recommend Wix, Weebly, or GoDaddy Website Builder.
Right now, I invoice for 50% of the project fee upfront. The final 50% is due when we finish up the site.
A lead magnet is a digital download that you give to your website users in return for their email address and permission to add them to your email list. And I include them because I’m obsessed with them and you might end up becoming obsessed with them, too!
Lead magnets are THE BEST way to grow your email list with people who are fans of your work and are likely to buy from you in the future. Did you know that over 90% of people who visit your site are not ready to buy yet? If you can make friends with them, virtually, they will be more likely to make a purchase down the line.
The best way to do that is by helping them out! Your lead magnet can be a quick worksheet, a stock photo set, a short eBook, or whatever you want it to be – but it has to provide value to your target audience.
Brand design is not in my wheelhouse, unfortunately! My zone of genius is for sure web design and that’s what I LOVE doing.
If you need high-level design work done for your brand, I work with a talented brand designer and I’d be more than happy to request a quote from her for you.
To give you a custom rec, I’d need to talk to you! That being said, I think that SiteGround (Affiliate link) fits the bill for most small-medium business’s websites.
If you have just one domain name and plan to keep it that way, choose their first package. If you have more than one website or domains, choose the second one.
I’ve tried a lot of hosting and when it comes to server speed and reliability, customer service, and bells and whistles included, SiteGround wins for me. If you have tons of traffic (Upwards of 40k visits per month) or launches that involve thousands of site visitors, I would look into BigScoots for your hosting.
