For a true writer, each book should be a new beginning where he tries again for something that is beyond attainment. He should always try for something that has never been done or that others have tried and failed. Then sometimes, with great luck, he will succeed. Ernest Hemingway

If you are not at a place where you can commit to a monthly website service package that is ok, we still want to help you!

Course Build Out
For our Course Build Out service we will be using whichever system plugin you have already purchased or plan to purchase before we begin. We will be in charge of taking all of your written content and creating a layout and design that will be engaging to the student and best reflects your personality and brand image.
Back to Packages
Our standard site will encompass the details your customers need today and build the foundation that you need to expand as your business grows. This site includes four standard pages: Home, About, Services, and Contact. There is also one additional page that can be used for a blog, portfolio or image gallery.
Your logo is the symbol of your website, your brand, and the lasting snapshot of what you or your business are all about. Our logo design service comes with 4 unique logo concepts for you to pick from. Once sent to you for approval, you will have up to 2 rounds of revisions on the logo that you like the most.
Content Management System (CMS)
Websites are all built on the WordPress platform. It’s probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) that there is to use. The great thing about using WordPress is that it can grow with you. Not only does it create a great looking site, but it allows you to search thousands of different plugins to connect to the programs and features that make your site most efficient and engaging for your visitors.
With the ever continuing rise of internet searches from visitors mobile phones, it is important that your website looks good on both a computer and other mobile devices. All of the sites that we create are made to be responsive, so that mobile users have an easy time navigating your site and finding the information that they are looking for.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
So what is SEO you may ask? This is work done on your website that will help search engines (like Google) find your website and pull up your pages when someone does an online search. All of our websites include standard SEO work that will help you get off on the right foot!
All sites will have Google Analytics connected on the admin side. This will allow you to see how many people are coming to your website, where these visitors are coming from, how long they are staying on your site, and so much more. We know it sounds kind of technical, but it is cool information to be able to see!
Unfortunately we are not content writers, so all of that will need to be provided by you. However, the content you provide may be reformatted or edited to best fit the page design. We are happy to offer suggestions of text that may be important to provide users information or to fill in design elements. There are 2 approval stages for you to be able to review everything so you always have the final say on the message your site is delivering.
All websites will come with access to a training library that will cover the basics on updating your website. For those who chose a website service (see above) – Once you pay your first monthly fee you will have unlimited access to the library for as long as you keep our monthly service. For those who do not opt for the website service – once you pay in full you will have access to the training library for 60 days.
2-Sided Business Card
A business card not only serves as a direct marketing tool, but having one on hand shows that you’re prepared. We will use your new logo to create 2 unique, engaging, 2-sided pieces of marketing that you can keep on hand. You can choose which concept you like the best and then you have up to 2 revisions on that design. Printing services are not a part of this offer.
Social Media Banner & Profile Images
One of the keys to branding is consistency. We will create a Facebook page banner and profile image that will highlight your new brand and image. Once sent to you for approval, you will have up to 2 rounds of revisions on each image. Your final, approved image will be sized for all social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and YouTube.
A Favicon is an icon associated with a URL that is displayed in various places, as in a browser’s address bar or next to the site name in a bookmark list (i.e. if you go to Amazon the tab in your browser has the Amazon ‘a’). We will create a branded favicon that matches your logo and sets your URL apart from many others that may be open in someone’s browser.
Our branding guide is a cheat sheet for your updated logo and image. This guide will include your new colors, listed in all of the formats that you may need to use on any digital or print materials and the type face used so you can keep your fonts consistent. We will also share some of our top tips for using your new logo on marketing and social media platforms.
