strategy & guidance to you from start-to-finish.

Semi Custom

Free Consultation

Semi Custom sites allow you to have a website up-and-running quickly and at a lower price point because the general layout of the site is predetermined by an existing template that Kate will recommend after learning more about your project. We'll be able to add your own logo, custom images or graphics (stock images not included), and determine the basic color scheme to semi-customize the template.

Natalie NourigatKate was the right choice for my website redesign and it was clear from day one. Her streamlined process helped me identify my priorities, define my brand, and build a site that communicates beautifully who I am and what I do, all within my budget. I especially appreciated that she was able to explain her process to me and that she left me with a website I can manage and update myself. Kate is efficient, reliable, and extremely good at her job.

Wordpress Instruction

If you haven't used Wordpress before, or even if you have but want a refresher, Kate will walk you through how to use Wordpress via phone, focusing specifically on how to update your site with the kinds of changes you want to make. You can ask as many questions as you want, and spend as much time as you want until you feel comfortable and confident.

Cost: $65/hr -or- 1 hour free for all Fully Custom projects

Monthly Website Maintenance

Kate will take care of monthly Wordpress backups, updates, site malware scans, and database optimization so that your site will run as smoothly and securely as possible. In addition, Kate will send you a PDF report from Google Analytics outlining who is visiting your website, where they're coming from, and what they're looking at so that you can refine your website content to improve performance. If you don't need this each month, Kate can also do this every 2 months, or every 3 months instead.

Cost: $50/month

Domain Name and/or Web Hosting

If you want someone to manage your domain name registration and web hosting so that you don't have to deal with it, Kate is happy to do so. She'll make sure you have administrative access to the accounts so that you can make changes at any time if you want.

Logo Design

After gathering information from you about your business, Kate will generate 5 unique logo ideas for you to choose from. After gathering your feedback, she will refine one (or more, if desired) of the ideas presented for your final review, resulting in a final logo that can be used for the web or print.
