Get your dream website up and running in a weekend!
START ATTRACTING MORE CLIENTS AND GROW YOUR BUSINESS TODAY.
… pulling your hair out and giving up on that DIY website because it is too frustrating?
… losing time and customers because your new website is taking weeks—even months—to complete?
.. getting stressed about whether your current website will take your online business to that next level you can clearly picture in your head?
It used to take months to build a website, but imagine waking up one day knowing that by Monday morning you will have your dream website online & working for you!
WordPress Website in a Weekend
An efficient two-day web design process for busy women entrepreneurs to launch your professional website quickly and cost-effectively.
Perhaps you are launching a new business or blog, or maybe you’re changing the direction of your business. Or maybe having run your business for several years, you are ready to take your business to the next level.
But your website is creating a roadblock. The DIY is not going well, the designer that you are thinking of hiring is putting you on a six to eight-week waiting list.
Traditional websites take eight to twelve weeks because a lot of time is taken going back and forth between designers and clients. For example, the designer presents a homepage concept and gives the client two to three days to review and provide feedback. The designer works on the concept some more and provides another few days for feedback. Final tweaks are made and the homepage concept is finally approved. Five to seven business days have just gone by with only a small part of the whole project having been accomplished!
The main reason the schedule gets thrown off is caused by the delay of feedback or receiving the copy, images, and other necessary requirements.
These delays create frustration for both designers & clients.
Now imagine when we start a project with full preparedness, and we set aside a full weekend dedicated to ONLY you.
We will work together during the weekend, taking that daunting feeling away by having your website designed for you.
No distraction from other clients or projects during the weekend. You will be able to see your website happening in front of your eyes and walk away with a beautiful website by Monday morning.
Our process is simple and by eliminating the lengthy back and forth between you and us, we can make it more cost -effective, not to mention we can cut the time of the build – and this is why we can offer more affordable websites in a fraction of the time!
It’s you + us, with no distractions. You walk away with tangible results; we walk away feeling accomplished; a total #win-win!

** ONE THING TO NOTE **
When you book a day or weekend with us you are booking our time, not a set of deliverables.
Typical completion of the website in a day/weekend will depend on the website scope, feedback, and revisions you request as we go through the day/weekend. As you book us for a day/weekend, there is no limitation on how many changes you request within our time limit. If additional time may be required, we will discuss your options as we go through the day.
We work through your needs in order, setting out the strategy, making the framework first and then tackling the design from the top down (or the trickiest!).
For the whole day/weekend, our sole focus is launching your project!
Includes these bonuses:
Free Branding Mini-Course to help getting clarity on your brand identity (logo, colors, etc.).
Website Content Planner
Hassle free and step-by-step guidance to collect and write your content.
FREE 60-minute strategy call to ensure that you end up with a branding or website that really does wow! (2 hours for Membership / eLearning package)
Additional time after launch for design fixes and tweaks. (One hour for websites; Two hours for Membership / eLearning)
Training videos to help you with your WordPress site, Google Analytics, and the Page Builder. Unlimited access from within your website.
30-day post-intensive email & message support to ensure you are comfortable with your site. During this time, we will also keep your platform & software up to date.
How Does it Work?
Book Your Date
Choose a date and pay to secure your slot to have your website created. Please allow at least 2 weeks to prepare your content to ensure everything is ready to go on your chosen date.
We will send you your preparation guide and content planner for you to upload before your booked date. Since you’ve already collected all your web content, we will get straight into the design work right away,
Website Building Date
Here’s where you get to see your website unfolding before your eyes. The whole day is dedicated to you and your website only.
Email support will be provided for the next 30 days. You will also have all the documentation you need to get started at your fingertips.
I understand—this is not for everyone. You will need to be virtually available on the design weekend, make quick decisions, and be able to prepare all your content prior to the design day. But I promise you, it will pay off Monday morning when you walk away with the completion of your branding/website!
The WordPress Website in a Weekend is so achievable and affordable because we eliminate so much time, delays and scope creep within projects. We also can confidently offer a fraction of traditional project costs because we know exactly how much time we will need to dedicate to your projects.
Prior to booking me, we recommend that we spend time together on a discovery call, where we can have a chat on the minimal viable deliveries on the day so you know the least that you will get by the end of the day. The completion of the work will all depend on the complexity of the site, your prompt feedback and your commitment on the day. If we get to the end of the weekend and you feel like you need me to do some more work, not to worry!
You can book an extra day, or even half a day intensive so we can get to the finish line.
Of course! We offer half, full, and two-day intensives at returning client rates. You don't need to book a full day if you don't need to (returning client only).
Every day or weekend is different, depending on your priority task list. We will start off the day with a kick-off email with estimated check-in times for parts of our process. This milestone will help you to plan your day ahead.
You can expect pretty frequent communication on that day so the faster I get your feedback, the more we can accomplish during our time together. Once we are confident we are on the right track, you can relax and let me get on with it and we’ll let you know when it is ready for feedback. Because we will be needing your feedback throughout the day/weekend, we would recommend that you book the day/weekend when you know you can clear your schedule.
You can expect the first concept for the homepage to view around mid-morning. We provide a very easy to use an on-page commenting system where you can pop your comments on the web pages directly for us and we will be able to easily see these comments and change requests. We will use one of these messaging applications (your preference—we will test communication during our Strategy Call): Slack, Facebook Messenger, Google Chat. You can expect pretty frequent communication on that day so the faster we get your feedback, the more we can accomplish during our time together.
Once we are confident we are on the right track you can relax and let us get on with it and we'll let you know when it is ready for feedback. Once you approve the site, we will need approximately 1 hr to work on technical things to ensure your site is optimised in speed and check all the responsiveness. Because we will be needing your feedback throughout the day, we would recommend that you book the day / weekend when you know you can clear your schedule.
I have been working as a website designer for more than 25 years now and I have a seamless process to ensure I can maximize our time together. To make sure we hit the ground running, we will have a Strategy Call a few days before the Design Day/Weekend, where we can chat about your objectives and ideal vision. On Saturday, will get straight into it! Because you are also on stand-by to give us feedback, we will eliminate the time it takes to go back and forth with feedback that would normally take days! We also dedicate the whole day/weekend for you, so we won't be distracted by other client's work.
Yes, we offer semi-custom eCommerce, membership or eLearning sites in two intensive days. You will walk away with a 3 to 5-page WordPress website with standard eCommerce, Membership or eLearning functionality. Because of the nature of WordPress Website in a Weekend, it is ideal for simple (but still gorgeous) websites that don't require custom functions or lots of bells and whistles. If you need a more complex site, reach out for our custom website design.
You will have some ongoing costs for your website.
Just like your car needs ongoing maintenance to keep the it running well, there are some ongoing costs that you will need to keep in mind. We can look after most things for you if you prefer to be looked after (optional).
A Domain Name is the URL that you type in an internet browser to get to your website. This is your website address. You normally pay annually for the registration and need to keep it renewed to make sure you can still use the domain name. We recommend NameCheap.
A Hosting company provides storage of your website files and the database and software that run your WordPress site. Some hosting companies allow you to pay monthly, but this is more expensive than paying for annual plans. See separate FAQ for recommendations.
Most hosting providers now include a free SSL certificate with the hosting plan. If you need a higher level of encryption than the free option, you can usually purchase this through your hosting provider.
Most hosting providers also provide email hosting using your new domain name. With this option you can use any email client you choose. This is the free option. You can also use a third-party email provider such as Google Workplace, Office 365 or Zoho.
Plugins & Theme Subscriptions, Updates & Maintenance:
If your site required premium fonts, plugins or other items, you will be required to pay for them during our day/weekend. We do use several premium themes and plugins that are licensed to our agency. As long as your site keeps our design and credits in the footer, you may continue to use our licensed products.
if you are not with our care plan, it is important to make time to update and maintain your website, securing it against any unwelcome attacks and that it is actually online and operational for your customers and users.
While we don't provide hosting, we have several to recommend:
NOTE: We receive a small commision if you purchase hosting through one of the above links. Also please note that almost all hosting companies offer you a drastically reduced initial rate
We don’t hold anyone hostage to continue using us in order to continue using your website.
Once you have paid off the full invoice of your branding/website, the branding files and/or website is all yours.
Prior to our Design Day/Weekend, we'll send you your preparation guide and content planner for you to upload before your booked date.
For branding, we'll ask you to complete our branding mini-course so we can get more clarity on the business.
For the website, you will need to prepare the following:
- Professional or stock images
- Text for the page (we will give you access to our checklist)
- Social media account links
- Branding assets
- Website Domain*
- Website Hosting*
When we work together for a day, it’s important that you show up to the day prepared with everything we’ll need in order to make it a success, and we'll set aside a full day/weekend dedicated to YOU, and only you.
*See ongoing costs FAQ.
Your website is your 24-hour salesperson for your business and service or products, so it is important to look after it.
I have seen too many small business website owners lose control of their sites over time.
You can take responsibility for this yourself but if you want me to do this for you, I’ve got you covered! We help you to get that peace of mind that all your software is up to date, secure against any unwelcome attacks and that it is actually online and operational for your customers and users.
See here for more info about Website Care Plan.
Yes, you’re never going to be abandoned. You’ll get three forms of support. The first form of support will be the Visual User Manual, where you’ll have access to a video library of information, including how-to documentation to update the content on your website, adding menu, pages, posts and many more.
And then, there’s a BONUS form of support, which is 30 days of post-design support, which allows you to have online access to me via email.
Lastly, an optional monthly care plan allows me to support your website by making sure that your website is in top condition, as well as daily backups just in case something happened and you need to roll back!
Absolutely! You can book one of us for a quarter or half-day to help you with troubleshooting or you can book us adhoc for $75/hr (including email support). Keep in mind though, my calendar is often full and you might have to wait for a free day. When we complete your website, you'll receive a copy of The Website Owner’s Manual which will help you keep track of all the important details about your website; including logins, hosting setup, DNS records, routine maintenance, & answers to my most frequently asked questions to help you have continued success with your website should you wish to give it a go on your own.
Our website content planner is designed to help you creating your own content systematically without feeling overwhelmed, with the checklist to tick off to make sure we don't miss out anything.
But if you prefer to get someone to write it for you, some copywritiers that we can refer you on the day rate basis too. Let us know and we can put you in touch!
A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to lock in a date on our calendar or pay in full. The remainder is payable 24 hours before we work together. Your payment secures the slot in my calendar and allows meus to give you our undivided attention.This also means we can't take other work. No refunds are available from the time of booking. Additionally, no refunds are considered during or after the project period. If you need to change the date, you can change it once by checking our availability on the website and let us know at least 7 days before the design day / weekend.
Please note that we am often booked out so this will affect your timeline.
