ABOUT OUR PROCESS

I believe strongly in removing barriers. Barriers of uncertainty in our vision, barriers of over-complicating our offering, barriers to building a web presence we actually love (and enjoy playing around with), and barriers to living out the life we envision for ourselves.

To that end, I use WIX exclusively to create websites for my clients. The level of creative freedom we can achieve paired with the ease of advanced functionality make WIX unmatched to any other platform I've used in all my years online.

I'm not a web designer by trade -- that is to say, I don't come from a design background, but from marketing. I just happened to find a phenomenal tool to use, and got good at it.

 

The advantage you get from working with me is a custom website that connects all the pieces of your bigger puzzle: developing your brand, the technical pieces, the creative/aesthetic of the site itself, and the marketing strategies needed to achieve your goals.

WHERE TO BEGIN?

I'M JUST

STARTING

OUT

I WANT TO REBRAND MY EXISTING ONLINE BUSINESS

(NON-WIX)

I HAVE A WIX SITE AND WANT TO IMPROVE IT

Who This Is For:

You've got a great new business or blog idea and you're totally ready to go, or perhaps you're opening up your offline business to the online market. Now begins the overwhelm (branding, website design, copywriting, marketing tactics, oh my!). 

With the right person guiding you through the online maze, you'll get there much quicker -- and have some fun doing it!

JUMPSTART

What to Expect:

  • Start out with a thought-provoking guide to get your juices flowing and get you clear on your vision, brand goals + online needs

  • A video intake call to discuss your branding, marketing, and plan out your website project

  • We will create a custom simple & clear 5-6 page WIX website that drives the actions you want visitors to take

  • Integration of your social channels to website, if you wish.

  • Your site will be delivered optimized for mobile, primed for SEO, and designed with your ability to market it top-of-mind.

  • Live tutorial walk-through to show you every nook and cranny of your site and remove any intimidation about making the ongoing updates you'll want

  • Optional additional pages and add-ons of more advanced integrations like a blog, e-commerce storefront, pre-paid bookings, email marketing, multilingual sites and much more

  • Are you the right fit for this package? Let's chat by voice and find out!

 
 

I was overwhelmed by anything technology related, I had created a mental block.  Val patiently walked me through step by step, and also explained the different social media platforms to me and suggested meaningful steps that I could take to develop my brand - at a pace that I was comfortable with.

Val is very easy to talk to; she is very good at getting to the essence of what you're trying to say and improving on the idea.  Val is a storyteller.  She has a talent with words.  She took my ideas and wove them into a cohesive and compelling story. She's approachable, a great listener and makes every effort to make your project the truest reflection of yourself.

Who This Is For:

You already have a website someplace else, and it falls somewhere on the scale between "I tolerate it" and "I hate it". If you're fed up with your current online presence on another platform, let's start by identifying your pain points and brainstorm how to get them solved.

Whether your existing platform wasn't able to live up to your full vision, you've had the same look for a few years and need to revamp your brand, or you're pivoting your offering... You already know what it takes to get everything going and you don't have that kind of time or bandwidth. 

I believe Val is passionate about helping people achieve their goals and dreams - your success is her success -

she is THE BEST support system anyone could ask for. She gets just as excited as you (maybe more)

when planning or reaching goals - she gets animated and her love and passion glows.

She. Is. Amazing.

- Ashley Ketch, Ashley Marie Creative Studios

Who This Is For:

You've gotten started with your WIX website, but are stuck as to what to do next.

 

How do some of the tools work? How can it to do more stuff, and look & sound more like you?

 

Perhaps you need more people to sign up for your mailing list, or you want to add a blog. You may want a home page that acts as a tour guide for the rest of your website, but aren't quite sure how to do that. 

With a little help, you know you can nail this WIX thing. Let's do this.

MAKEOVER

What to Expect:

  • We'll begin with a thought-provoking guide to get you clear on your vision, brand goals and online needs - what's working on your WIX site? What's not working?

  • A video intake call to discuss your branding, marketing, and plan out your website makeover project

  • We will give your existing 5-6 page WIX website a makeover that drives the actions you want visitors to take

  • We'll look at what we can use from all the hard work you've already done

  • Integration of your social channels to website, if you wish.

  • Your site will be delivered optimized for mobile, primed for SEO, and designed with your ability to market it top-of-mind.

  • Live tutorial walk-through to show you every nook and cranny of your site and remove any intimidation about making the ongoing updates you'll want

  • Optional additional pages and add-ons of more advanced integrations like a blog, e-commerce storefront, pre-paid bookings, email marketing, multilingual sites and much more

  • Are you the right fit for this package? Let's chat by voice and find out!

 

I had no idea how to express what I wanted to do. I dumped all of my ideas on Val and in return she helped me figure out how to express my ideas in a user-friendly way. She took my vision and created a masterpiece of a website: it resonates with who I am. It was hard for me to express it but somehow Val decoded my chaos and created perfection. 

After working with Val I have gained so much knowledge in many areas. She told me that she was going to show me how to build a website, and she sure did. I had my doubts about me being able to do it, but she proved me wrong.

She taught me a lot of shortcuts. She helped bring clarity to my vision. 

Val was able to help me get crystal clear with my messaging and audience. Once I was clear, she took my vision and brought it to life.
