Why you should hire me to design your Squarespace Website
Squarespace is known for being a Do it yourself platform so why would you hire a designer to create your Squarespace website?
Well, how about we dive into that in today's video!
So now we are talking about why you are hiring a designer, actually, scratch that. let's talk about why you should hire me to create your Squarespace website.
Squarespace is totally known for its drag and drop, do it yourself style of website.
I honestly love the DIY aspect of Squarespace, I know in the early years of starting your business you NEED to be able to maintain your own site. You want to be able to easily add content and make updates. That's one of the main reasons why I recommend SS to my clients so that when we are finished with the site - they have full control.
My very first web design client was looking to switch to SS because she felt stuck with her old site. Every time she wanted to make a change or update her email opt-in she had to pay her designer a minimum fee of $100. Which means her site was outdated very quickly because she couldn't afford to pay to make changes. When your business is just starting out things are changing and evolving very quickly. You need to feel in control of those things, you should feel empowered to run your website!
Now when my client wants to be able to change something, she's able to do it herself!
Are you ready for the reasons why you should hire me to design your website?
First, we design, then we pick a template.
I don't pick a template and fill in the boxes. When I'm designing a website, I actually do most of the vision and site dreaming in Adobe Illustrator. I start with a strategic layout that matches your goals, create a design around the layout adding layers and little details that create a website that is totally unique. After I know the general layout and functions we need to make that design happen, I find the perfect template and completely customize to fit the visions.
Website design starts with strategy.
I start with the strategy behind the design. I don't design your website to just look pretty. Don't get me wrong, it will look freaking fantastic, but it will also be smart and help you hit those goals you are working your butt off to make. Which means before we do any design I go in depth with the plan of action. If you want to book more speaking gigs, you can bet I will design your website to highlight your amazing speaking qualities.
I'm quick at what I do!
I'm fast! It's my job to know the ends and outs of SS. While I won't claim to know everything there is to know about SS because I literally learn something new every day, however, I'm really comfortable working within the platform that I can go a website in just a couple of weeks.
Optimize, Optimize, Optimize!
I optimize all the things. SS is awesome in that it has some built-in SEO and every template is mobile responsive, but there are some quirks and way to make these features even better. I know all the places to add your keywords, I know how to arrange things to they rearrange correctly on different screen sizes. These are the kinds of things you learn when you've created a bunch of SS sites and are obsessed with web design like am.
Save yourself time and stress.
You could be making money, and working your own business rather than pulling your hair out trying to figure out how to do something on your website. I know you love what you do and should be spending time doing what you love!
You know what the bonus is?
I LOVE creating websites.
I dream of creating websites. That love you feel about working with your clients and working on your business. That's how I feel about web design. When I'm making your website I feel so excited and passionate about your project, I pour everything into your website. I push myself to learn more and make your website better than the last website I created. Imagine what it's like to have someone that invested in your business? That's what you get when you hire me.
Let's recap. You should hire me to design your website because I like to push the envelope with your template, I put the strategy on your website first, I'm pretty darn fast, I optimize your site beyond the prebuilt standards, and when you aren't busy diy-it, you can be making more money and rest easy know that you have someone who is fully invested and passionate about making your website stand out!
