Our strategy, design and content process is super intentional so you can spend less time worrying about building your website and more time on... anything else. Gone are the days of never-ending email threads, miscommunications and drifting deadlines. Instead, we have designed a clear timeline for project completion.
Planning: We’ll have an hour-long Strategy Session where we’ll help you get clear on your brand strategy, your niche, and/or your website goals—whatever your project calls for to get started on the right foot.
Content: You'll have an hour-long Content Strategy Sesssion to discuss content for your website. Depending on your package, we will either edit content you provide us or write it for you.
Development: Web design takes place during 2 Work Days. You'll choose them when booking to make sure you are available for feedback during those days.
Launch & Learn: Once the site is ready to launch, you’ll get a 40-minute follow-up call, relevant video tutorials, and 30 days of email support.

Hey, you! Yes, you. You are Amazing.
You’re passionate about the products and services you offer. You love to help your customers improve their lives. Your customers need you! You’re making a difference in the world because you’re making a difference in the life of each customer.
What are you doing to grow your business online?
How are you making sure new customers find your business? How well are you convincing them that what you have to offer will improve their lives? Is your website making you money or costing you money? I work with small businesses like yours to figure out what’s holding you back and create websites that make you even better at what you do. I can help you increase your customer traffic, improve your visibility, and enhance your reputation all with the magic of WordPress, Google, and one-on-one support.
One-size doesn’t fit all.
As a fellow small business owner, I know that ideal growth looks different for everyone. In the service industry, we seek the right clients who are a good fit for the services and/or goods we provide. When selling products, we want to make sure we don’t grow faster than our inventory.
Together, we’ll develop a custom online strategy that meets YOUR goals. Let’s talk about where you want to be and what’s keeping you from being there. Where should you focus your efforts: SEO, automation, marketing funnels, social media? I can help you figure that out and build a website that supports those goals. Take it a step further with my marketing automation packages, where I’ll help you implement those goals.
Frequently Asked Questions
88 Creative Studio hosts all client websites and your package comes with the first year of hosting included. We do this so we can deliver the best support to my clients on a server configured especially for fast and secure WordPress websites. We have access to a 24/7 care team to help out with hardware and server configs, troubleshooting and more. Want to know about my server specs or hosting plan? We’d be happy to answer your questions!
Yes! All sites built by 88 Creative Studio are hosted by 88 Creative Studio. You can still have full access to the backend of your site (including SFTP) if you want that level of access.
We’ve partnered with a leading WordPress-only hosting company to ensure that you get the best service, hardware, performance and security. To stand by the quality of our sites, we only build and maintain websites hosted by us. We are happy to migrate sites hosted elsewhere to our server.
Your website will always be 100% yours. Should you ever wish to host it elsewhere, the website is yours do with and move as you wish. 88 Creative Studio does not lock Clients into a contract. Client may cancel hosting services at any time. If on a monthly plan, Client will be billed for the current month of cancellation. If on an annual plan, Client will be prorated for months left in the billing cycle, minus the current billing month. Should Client choose to cancel, Client must submit a request to cancel via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Client has two options after cancellation: (1) Client may stay on Flywheel and self-manage at Flywheel's current rate ($25/mo as of 07/2019) on Client's chosen plan. Client will have 30 days from date of cancellation notice to accept billing transfer initiated by 88 Creative Studio. Or, (2) Should Client choose to migrate away from Flywheel, Client will be responsible for any data migration, including but not limited to hiring and managing a developer to migrate the site to a new hosting platform.
First of all, thank you for asking about this. Responsive design, SEO and analytics are *essential* for your website strategy. Yes, your website will be device-friendly and your sitemap will be submitted to Google for SEO. We provide basic SEO setup, including proper page mapping for link tree search page display (see image below.) We can help you figure out how to prioritize your SEO efforts and answer your questions about SEO. If you're specifically looking to get on page 1 of Google or to use Ad Words, you'll need to hire an SEO professional.
We will also set up your site on Google Analytics so you can see things like individual page views and how users interact with your site.
Example of link tree search display:
The OLD way: "A lot of the timing will depend on you and the size/complexity of your website. Most of our time is spent before the website is even built. Think of the adage "measure twice, cut once." This planning phase takes 1-3 weeks after the consult. Once you've delivered all your content, the build phase takes about a month. We can launch your new website in as little as 2-4 weeks after that."
The NEW way: Book your workdays, complete preparation materials, your website gets built in TWO days. That's not a typo, folks!
Your workdays will be scheduled at a 3-week minimum from booking to allow you time to complete the prework and for us to schedule and complete our strategy session. Once your workdays arrive, your website will be built in 2 days!
The only way to book me is by the day. In special circumstances, I am happy to accommodate half-day packages for repeat clients.
We want to do the very best by my clients, and that means partnering with business owners who are committed to a strong online strategy that employs the entire 10-Point Website Wellness Plan. If you already have a website that you're happy with and just needs some updates here and there, let's talk about whether we can make upgrades to get you to 10-Point without going through a whole re-design process.
We kindly ask for a 50% deposit to book our time and 50% right before delivery of final files (but after final proofs so you can be sure everything is to your complete satisfaction.) We also have payment plans available. You'll have the option to pay with a credit card or PayPal straight from the invoice.
