Have you been burned before?

Most of my clients come to me after working with a web designer who created a site that they can’t use or doesn’t work or just sits there not doing anything useful. Maybe you found someone cheap and got what you paid for. I know that’s the worst feeling, which is why I want to take extra special care of you. Check out my WordPress FAQ for more information about how I ensure excellent customer care for my clients.

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.

That’s great! The branding support we provide is so much more than a logo. We will happily discount your package if you already have a logo, but we’ll still complete the Brand Positioning together unless you already have that, too.

Who will host my website?

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!

Do you provide hosting?

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.

I already have hosting. Can I stay with my current host?

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.

Am I locked into a contract? What happens if I want to cancel my hosting service with you?

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 sally@88creativestudio.com. 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.

Will my website be mobile-friendly? What about SEO and Analytics?

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:

How long will it take to build my site?

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.

How quickly can we begin? Can you start working with me next week?

We're typically booked out 2-3 weeks in advance, and sometimes more than that. If you have a hard deadline, let us know and we may be able to start sooner with a bit of creativity.

Can I hire you at an hourly rate?

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.

How does payment work?

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.
