The GoLive in 5 service is perfect for any blogger or creative! You get a fully customized SquareSpace website LIVE online in just 5 days. It all starts by booking a week to complete your custom design. Then I will dive into customizing the website, which includes tailoring it specifically to your business and personal brand style.
We close out the experience by reviewing the completed site, fixing any last tweaks, and completing the 30 minute backend tutorial (if desired). Then it’s time to celebrate!! Your website is LIVE!

“I felt so held back by my website. I didn’t want to send potential clients there. Now I absolutely love it and can’t wait to share it at my upcoming vendor shows!”
Sometimes the idea of building a brand new website can be a little scary. There are probably a few reasons for this. You may be afraid the process will take too long or that it’s too expensive. You think of updating your website as a ‘backburner’ item that you will get to eventually.
Building your website doesn’t have to be this big scary monster of a task. Here are three solutions to those three main fears.
It doesn’t have to take months. It can take days. Really.
When I worked as an agency designer, we had a process of building websites that caused the projects to take months. There was even one project that I started when I was hired and was still ongoing when I left. This is sooo unnecessary. The reason some web project take so long is the process. But with a process that allows me to collaborate with my clients, the project time is drastically reduced. By helping hone in on what we will need BEFORE we dive into the design process, the whole project can take just a few short weeks (or even days!).
It’s too expensive.
This can be true, but it really depends on what you want in a website. If you would like to see unicorns fly across the screen as the user scrolls, well, sure, that is a bit fancier and will cost a bit more money to custom code those details. But if you are looking for a website that reflects your personal brand and is cleanly coded and responsive, it’s completely within reason to create this on a budget.
It’s not a priority.
Is your business a priority? Then your website should be, too. If you look at your website as your online business card, is it saying everything you need it to say? If not, creating your better online business presence should really be a priority, too.
Creating and updating your website doesn’t have to be so scary. You may just need to rethink the type of web design project that’s right for you. There are so many options and resources out on the internet that you can use to help you keep growing your biz online and off.
Another week, another gorgy website completed in just 5 days. This one for the sweetest photographer, Kate Jones, owner of Pearly Kate Photography.
Kate had this fear of redesigning her website, which seems to be an unfortunate trend with creative entrepreneurs. She just didn’t have the time or the energy to dive into a long-haul web project. Once I told her about the Go Live in 5 process and explained that we could get her a gorgy new website in 5 days, she was on board.
We started the process by talking through a few key details:
her branding guidelines
her website’s audience
her key call-to-actions
what she wanted to walk away with at the end of the week
Once I was armed with this info and her web content, including her beautiful wedding photography, I was ready to dive in. We started the process on a Monday and finished with final tweaks on Friday. Since Kate switched from WordPress to SquareSpace, we jumped on the phone for a quick 30 minute tutorial, and then she was LIVE.
I love this website for a few reasons:
The design is so lovely and fits her brand so well.
It’s totally going to add value to her business and increase her sales since she now totally looks like the badass photographer that she is.
It wasn’t a headache for her and after a week of collaboration, her shiny new website is already promoting how fabulous she is.
