How do you keep it so cheap?
I guarantee you a functioning website in three hours, which will include standard website/blog functionality and a customized, simple design. To accomplish this, I will get the final say over what is or is not possible during our work session based on how much time a given request might take (though you will absolutely have input while we work). The site will be simple and straightforward, sufficient to get the job done without a lot of unnecessary frills.
Of course this doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with what we build — we love adding more customization and functionality! This would just require additional paid hours (either in-person or remote). If you need more than 6 hours total I’d suggest just upgrading to a “Professional” or “Organizational” website.
If you don't already own your domain, drop everything and buy it immediately! Then please give me access to your domain registrar. You will want to share with my google email, email@example.com. Godaddy instructions here. Namecheap Instructions here.
Prepare and share your content:
At least a week before our work session, please share your content with me. You can see some tips on how to prepare and share your content here.
Your work session
A few days before we meet, I will put your live site into "coming soon" mode, and then install the base software like theme and plugins. I'll create a basic theme design and page layouts to get us started, and drop in your content. Then we will do a live work session to collaboratively tweak the site in real time to get it looking how you want. The live session usually takes around an hour or an hour and a half.
You'll use this link to schedule our live work session:
At the end of this work session, we'll take your site out of coming soon mode and your new site will be live! If you need additional time to make it exactly the way you want, we can do that either during/after the scheduled work session, or separately as needed after the site is live, and it's billed at $125 per hour. Or you can just buy another "website in a day" for $550 which will give you 5 more hours.
