We joined forces to offer websites that have it all: a beautiful design, great user experience and flow, landing pages that convert into signups, donations or sales, a backend that’s set up correctly…and a great marketing strategy to get people TO your website in the first place.
+ we’ve got a great team of experts behind us – from email marketing to copywriting and tech, we’ve got your back.
So your website can do the work for you, and not the other way around. Chat with us so we can put together the RIGHT team for YOU.
Our website design process
During our Strategy Session we'll discuss your core brand messaging, website goals and ideal clients. We cover exactly what is needed to create a website that grows your business.
Get Content Planning
Clarify your message with our wireframe content guides for each page. It's an interactive system to get you focused on your message and includes prompts to get you unstuck.
We get to work on setting up your website with your branding, colours, fonts, navigation and structure.
We create your homepage and connect any marketing integrations you need. We'll provide a walk through video of the design and a link to our interactive feedback app.
Once you’re in love with your new homepage we’ll begin work on your subpages, bringing your content to life with conversion-focused design that inspires action.
We finalise and test everything, speed things up with a little magic and connect important tools like Analytics.
When you're happy we'll hit the launch button and get your new site out into the world.
After launch, you may have some final changes that you would like implemented. You get extra development hours so that we can make small tweaks to your design in the 7 days following the launch.
You’ll get our custom training videos that explain how to keep your website up to date and functioning properly, update the content on your site, add new sections to pages, add and edit blog posts.
Support & Maintenance
30 days of email support if you find yourself stuck or confused.
If you’d like an expert to look after the site once we launch then we can help with that too.
The Website Design Experience F.A.Q.
Every project includes a strategy session and guided content creation. You can choose to work with Mellissa for strategy and design or first go through the Storybrand process with Sandrine before Mellissa designs the site.
Each site is unique but yours could include integrations with top email marketing software, embedded scheduling app, Instagram feed, sign up for your freebie, Facebook pixel, a blog and more.
What’s not included?
Your domain name and hosting is not included.
Branding, logos, lead generation funnels, content marketing and SEO research and optimisation can be added to your package if you need them.
Premium plugin licences, font licences or other paid integrations should be purchased by you unless otherwise agreed. If you require a multilingual website we provide a lifetime licence for WPML.
What about SEO?
Your website will have an SEO plugin installed. This means you can do some important things to optimise your site for search engines. Our content planner also has some basics on SEO to help you.
If you need SEO research, strategy and optimisation this can be included in your package and will be discussed during our discovery call.
Will we be able to update the content myself?
Yes, you can update the content and images, add new sections, new pages, add blog posts etc, our handy explainer videos will help you get to grips with this.
What prep work do we need to do?
We typically need your outline content, brand assets, images and videos before the design project can begin. Following our strategy session, we provide custom content wireframes so you know exactly what content you need to provide to us.
Throughout the process, we’ll need access to any tools or other platforms that will be connected to your website. Don’t worry, we work all this out before the design begins.
How does our collaboration benefit the planet?
Part of the revenue for each project will go towards international tree-planting initiatives and helps support us to offset our own carbon footprint.
