It's time to finally slay the website dragon.
Building a website is the worst.
The amount of hours you have spent trying to rig a DIY site is numbering in the thousands. So that's been really good for #productivity. Your head hurts, your business hurts, your social life hurts. And you've pulled out all your hair. Also, the site is ugly, so you're totally frustrated and unsatisfied.
Or maybe you are on site number six with designer number ten, and every single one undoes what the one before charged you thousands to do. You can't even begin to think about all the money you've wasted, and you're starting to wonder if everyone is taking advantage of what you don't know.
Or perhaps you have a techy person on your team, and they've been trying to build + bandaid to save you money. But now the darn thing is broken and they've abandoned their actual work to try to fix it, and you're all in a heap and ready to throw the thing away.
The amount of leads, customers, visitors and supporters you have lost is unkown, but it feels like maybe a million. It's embarrassing actually. You're embarrassed about the whole thing.
WHAT IF YOU BUILT A WEBSITE THAT WORKS?
Your website could:
- Run lickity split across the internet
- Look and function like a dream
- Rank in Google
- Connect to clients through cracker jack writing and sales pages
- Be the workhorse of your business, your strongest marketing tool
- Make money...like it should
With a team that's:
- Educated, experienced, and professional
- Plugs in seamlessly wherever you need, allowing you do do your genius work
- Advises with integrity, instead of trying to make a quick buck
- Develops a long-term relationship and guides you through the crazy changes of the internet
And you could have:
- A new level of confidence to step out and be exactly who you know you are
- Branding that is in-sync and amazing
- The ability to point others to your site and know it's not total trash.
- No more anxiety and frustration over time lost, money lost, and clients lost
- The return of your sanity
Hey there, I'm Christine
I've been designing websites since 2005. What started out as a love for design has become a passion for helping small businesses bloom in a crowded online market place. I believe form follows function, and neither form nor function has to be ugly and disjointed.
As I worked in design, I began to see a three holes in the online marketplace. I knew I could:
- Be cost effective and still produce really high quality work with a team of experts that work remotely, instead of in a brick and mortar design house... or a one-man renegade online company
- Create a process that took the overwhelm away and made designing a website fun and rewarding
- Empower business owners to better understand technology and their website. To let them do all they can/want to, and to provide a back office of support that's rock solid.
These three things inform every decision I make. We have a team that's continually learning, improving and adapting. I'm a business owner too, so I developed what I knew I needed, and it turns out, everyone else loves it too.
I want to tell you how much I appreciate you and your team in the creation of my website and the knowledge you've given me about blogging, price changing and in general how to operate the back end. I've had an increase not only in traffic to my website but a big increase in new clients to my business! It's so encouraging now to see at least 2 people a week calling, or making their own appointments to come in. I wish I had found you sooner!

The nightmares of DIY web design are not your fault. All the instant web builders out there claim you can have a beautiful website up and running in under 30 minutes.
And honestly there is just no way to know if a web designer is ripping you off. It's blind trust. Just like the plumber and car repair man.
Also, having someone currently on your payroll try to design/fix/update your website isn't a bad theory. You're already paying them, and they have a little knowledge of websites.
Oh, and having a friend do the work in between you and other clients, and their 80 hour work week and now it's getting awkward. Well, you didn't know it would be like that in the beginning.
It can feel scary to trust someone else or try something else. It can also feel expensive and time consuming, and overwhelming.

Here's what some clients have told me...
I'll try just one more time to DIY, because it would still be faster than starting a project with a designer.
I've spent so much money already! Starting over and spending more...noooooooooo!
This feels overwhelming and I'm not techy at all. I'm nervous I'm going to get something I can't use, and the designer is going to think I'm an idiot.
I feel scared. I can 100% guarantee in 3 months I'll be back at square one. Taken advantage of one more time.
We've got this. We've got you.
Finding yourself with a shortage of time, money and talent to finish something is hard.
So is finding someone to do it for you.
But your search has ended here.
It has been such a wonderful journey building this website together. I loved how you truly listened to my vision and made it into a reality.
I found the process mysterious ( as I am totally clueless about website building ) but I loved every minute of the journey and you and the company
were so responsive to any questions I had. I feel totally blessed to have been put in contact with you and cannot recommend your services to
others highly enough.
I have received extremely positive feedback about my website and I know that your creation will take me far in my business.
Thank you again for all of your hard work and patience.

I can't believe it, but you've done it. My website is perfect. We have several new subscribers to our newsletter, people are reaching out to work with us, we signed a new client this week! Our site is ranking above our competition and we just launched last week! You and your team have been an absolute pleasure. I don't want this design process to end! Thank you for helping bring my business to life. Thank you, thank you.
