WEB SITE DESIGN

Modern, One-Page Web Site Systems

A flexible one-page, mobile-friendly Web site is for you, if you only want a simple Web presence.

More than 94% of customers look at your Web site on their mobile device.

It’s important to contemporize your Web site up-to-date with mobile friendly design.
This gives potential customers immediate grasp of your capable services.

Mobile Friendly

So, what's mobile friendly design and why do I need it?
Mobile friendly design is common phrase used to describe the industry term Responsive Web design (RWD). Because tablets & mobile devices are now more popular than ever, your one-page Web site works brilliantly on every device. Don’t fall behind!

Why Only One Page?

Sometimes, less is more.

Perhaps a simple, one-page format to showcase your services, location, and specials is all you need.
One page mobile friendly Web sites are easier for your customers to review on their mobile phones and iPads.

Studies have shown that customers prefer to scroll than to remember which page they were last reading.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

For Web Site Templates

Why Do I Have to Have a Web site (if I have ETSY, BigCartel, etc)?

Regardless of the market you're working with (ETSY, SquareUp, BigCartel, etc), you want a central hub for all of your activity. These markets come and go -nothing is permanent- so it's up to you to build your home.

It's much easier to point your customers to yourwebsite.com first (vs a convoluted address that contains web site address, forward slashes, hyphens, shop dot com again).

Crazy, huh?

I'm here to simplify your business home.

How Long Will It Take?

Provided you have all the content (words + pictures) needed to fill the template, it should take no more than a month. Ideally, 2 weeks, but that rarely happens due to schedules and this little thing called 'life.'

What If I Want Changes to the Template?

Let's start with what I know works.

The templates I've created are based on years of experience with architecture design. These basic templates are fundamental to making your business shine. Any derivation will create this thing called 'Scope Creep' and that incurs additional fees.

Consider Phase by Phase Implementation
After your Web site has been up and running for at least 6 months, then by all means, consider whether changes are a good idea.

Let's say you decide that you're going to make your own changes. After fiddling with it you realize that you've made a horrible mistake, we can remedy that with a backup replacement. I know you're probably feeling empowered to make updates, but don't confuse those with design changes.

You Love My Work But Want Your Own Custom Site
If you want a completely different site, I can do that, too. Just so you know, custom sites incurs extra fees.

Can You Make Changes To My Photos?

Making changes to photos or creating graphics from scratch are not included in this template.

Note: Photo/Graphic dimensions are available with the template for your own use. Photo/graphic dimensions will be provided upon contract signature & deposit.

If you want/need changes above and beyond the basic guidelines, we can accomplish this one of a few ways:

  • I can provide you images the size needed for your templates (for a small fee), or
  • I can provide full Photoshop file template sized with the photo/graphic dimensions so that you can import, crop, and fidget with your own (for a fee), or
  • I can make all photo sizing changes (for additional larger fee).

Filters, clean up, special layouts are not included. If you want these special features, let's talk.

Can you tweak or design a logo for me?

Making changes/tweaks to your logo or creating a logo from scratch are not included in this template.

What is included is text logo & tagline (if you have one). This means your business name and tagline are typed out into text. Once I receive your graphics (if that includes a logo) then I replace the text logo w/your graphic. Otherwise, the text logo remains the same.

If you want/need changes to your logo, we can discuss your logo as a separate project.

Is hosting my Web site and domain the same thing?

In short, no.

  1. Your new Web site will be hosted through my recommended ISP called SiteGround, and
  2. If you already have a domain name, I will help you move it if you desire.

It's just easier to keep both your domain and web site in one place. Because I have over a dozen, believe me when I say that you can quickly lose track of your assets.

Note: Please don't rush out and purchase a domain/hosting thru GoDaddy or any other large company you see advertised during the SuperBowl. It's been my experience that these large companies have dubious practices and breakups are extremely painful.

Do I need a blog?

I highly recommend it -even if you don't update it as 'frequently as the experts tell you.'  This injects life into your static Web site and helps Google more than you know. This also confirms that you're still in business -a definite question among customers who are curious about whether they can purchase a piece from you.

A blog is a place for you to make announcements about

  • New products
  • Awards
  • Upcoming shows
  • Partnerships
  • and more.

A blog will be included as part of your basic template, so you're covered.

Can I sell from my new Web site if I have ETSY (or BigCartel, etc)?

In essence yes, but not directly.

Based on these templates, I have included the ability to pull in your ETSY shop (or any other shop) with a widget. The widget pulls in categories where ever you want them on your Web site. However, this does not mean you'll be selling directly from your Web site. The widget gives your products the ability to be linked to your ETSY shop, however each image sends the customer back to the ETSY web site.

Take a look at SteampunkStewie.com. It's a live site using the ETSY widget and you can see it in action.

Can I have a separate shopping cart?

Creating a shopping cart at this time is not included in this template.

This template gives you the ability to showcase your work with or without pricing.  Revealing pricing on the Web site is a very individual decision.

Again, based on these templates, the ability to pull in your existing ETSY shop (or any other shop) with a widget is available if you desire.

What's the Difference Between Setting up a Shopping Cart & the External Cart Widget?

To set up a shopping cart specifically for your site is a huge undertaking. This takes hours of set up time and definitely not within budget parameters I've outlined above.

If you're already selling your work on ETSY, BigCartel, or another marketplace, pulling in your work shouldn't be too difficult. I'll do this with a Wordpress widget that a 3rd party has built for free.

Take a look at SteampunkStewie.com. It's a live site using the ETSY widget and you can see it in action.

What's the Difference Between Email Opt-In Integration & External Mail Service?

Email Opt-In Integration is an easy way of capturing emails on your Web site. I will be using a free widget to do this.

An External Mail Service is a 3rd party application that you pay for to send out fancy emails to your email lists. This is not included in your template.

You can choose to select and pay for an external mail service (MailChimp, Constant Contact, etc) or you can send emails from your own email inbox. As always, the choice is yours.

Can I make changes to my Web Site?

Yes, you sure can.

Once your Web site is uploaded to your preferred ISP and incurs a full backup, then you can make changes to your hearts content.

Your new web site will be on the WordPress platform. This is perfect for accessing it and making changes as often as you need. You can also access WordPress anywhere in the World, on any computer. You can give someone you trust access to make changes, too, with a password that you create.

Another reason I’m creating Web sites on WordPress is because I believe the biggest obstacle for any small business is waiting for their designer/family member/kidnextdoor to make changes on a timely basis.

Wordpress empowers you to make changes whenever you want them.

I'm Not Feeling Confident About Making Changes, Can You Help Me?

I completely understand. I would be delighted to help.

Since I'm a woman who likes options, I've got a couple of options for you in the terms of:

Versatile Support
Many clients keep me on as their Admin in case things go terribly wrong. I can get you out of the jam without breaking a sweat. Have you hit save before you made ‘that change?’ No problem!

Because you'll be making updates yourself, how much support do you think you’ll want?

  • MUY (make updates yourself) Major
    Your Web site is up and running, now you just want to make the updates yourself.
  • MUY (make updates yourself) Minor
    Your Web site is up and running but you need help making updates occasionally.

When you decide, let me know! I'm here if you need my help.

When Do I Get My Web Site ?

Your Web site draft will be created under a special name on my Web site (ie. yoursite.lisastewartdesignstudio.com). There you will be able to see your choice template and review all the content I've received from you.

This will be live but no one will know that it exists. This is called the sandbox. Once you approve all the content and are happy with your sandbox version of your new Web site, I will upload it to your ISP upon receiving your final project payment.

After your Web site has undergone a backup, then you can make changes to your hearts content.
