In a nut shell:
- If you hire me I will ensure you are happy with the final design
- It's just me - easy communication, nothing lost or missed
- An hourly rate so you only pay for what you need
- $99 per hour
- If you have everything organised then a website may only be $693
Why hire me:
A website is a crucial part of your business as it helps customers trust you, contact you and potentially buy from you. I am passionate about helping businesses represent their brand through creating beautiful and functional websites.
I work solo which means that when you hire me you speak directly to me. There is no communication break down and no doubling up of telling people what you would like. I only complete a small number of jobs at any one time. This means that your work is a high priority and will be completed with my utmost attention.
I have a masters in psychology, and have studied consumer psychology and marketing. This means I can offer ideas on how consumers behave, the psychology behind what makes people click, and how to set up your site to make it easy for consumers to navigate.
All my work is completed on a hourly basis, so that you only pay for the time it takes, priced at $99 per hour.
If you have a clear idea about what you want, you have the necessary text and photos ready, and want just the essentials (like contact us, about us and services) then I can likely create a website within 7 hours, which could be $693 for the whole thing. Check out this example website that took only 7 hours from start to finish.
If you have no idea what you want or need, or where to start, the hourly rate means you get my devoted time working on your website, you don't pay for what you don't need, and you can get exactly what you do need, without being confined to a limited number of revisions or changes. I can source images for you and can help write your website copy if you need it. This might make a simple website take about 8 - 10 hours, which is $792 - $999. (If you would like help narrowing down your ideas, scroll to the bottom of this page for free questionnaires!).
As design is quite subjective, it is often the case that clients want quite a few revisions or changes to really get something they are happy with. Many designers make packages or set prices that allow for only a small number of changes, which can mean you end up with a product your not completely happy with. I am open to making as many changes as you need, as this is simply priced per hour, and it then means that the final website is exactly what you want.
How it works:
I will send you a link to the draft website that I will create. I use squarespace for all my designs as squarespace is user friendly (so when I'm finished designing you can update it and add information easily, whenever you need), it has security and online shopping built in, and it converts automatically to mobile devices (which helps your site rank higher on google). The usability of Squarespace also cuts down the design time - keeping your overall cost lower.
You and I will work together to design and draft your website until you are totally happy it. Once your are happy, and we are finished making the changes, then I will sign over the final site to you. Squarespace charges a monthly fee (from $16 per month), that you will pay directly to them, and this also covers the hosting cost (often about $10 a month) to keep your website online.
You will need to either purchase a domain name yourself, or I can purchase that for you and add that to the total bill (usually about $12)
Before commencement I will require a deposit of $99, which pays for the first hour of the designs. If it is a large job we will also discuss periodic payments.

Need help to work out what you want?
Sign up below and you will receive my website design questionnaire (and logo design questionnaire) to help you narrow down what you need in a website, what structure might suit your business, and what style would suit your brand.
You can use the questionnaire for your own design needs, to inspire you for your clients, or to send to me if you hire my services.
The more you know what you want, and what style would work, the easier and faster it is for a designer to complete your site, which ultimately brings your cost down. Hooray!
So sign up below and get thinking and planning!
