I’ve been getting this question a lot from some lovely peeps who wanna work with me: “What’s your process?” “What’s it like to work with you?”
So I’m pulling back the proverbial veil and giving you a peek behind the scenes on how I work with sharp and driven world-changers like you, to design and code you a new, excellent website or make the one you have 1,000x better to get you more clients, spread your reach (and impact!), and bring in a lot more money while you’re at it.
So you can buy a plane ticket to explore Italy for a month, Eat Pray Love style — and work from there if you wish! (Because … delicious food, hot men, etc. galore? Yes, please!)
Let’s get this par-tay goin’.
Here’s what it’s like to work Website Superhero
Our first call
First, you book your complimentary 30-minute intro session for us to discuss your needs. I’ll find clarity in what you want to achieve in your biz in regards to your website and together we’ll see if we’d be “perfect partners” for it.
Because I fully believe that if it doesn’t feel right, we shouldn’t move forward. Call me “woo woo” if you want, got no problems with that! It’s how I make sure we’ll have a blast & I get to run a biz I’m crazy about.
We’ll pick an ideal start date and I’ll send you my proposal for your project within 48 business hours.
You’ll see that I love being thorough. Think of it as a long love poem with bullet points …for your business.
Contract + deposit
Once you accept the proposal, a deposit of 25-50% of the total payment will be charged up-front to lock your project into my schedule.
We’ll both sign a digital contract detailing our project scope. I save paper (and our time!) whenever possible.
Welcome Package + Welcome/Best Practice call
Upon our start date, you’ll receive your Welcome Package with:
- An overview of what to expect, how to get in touch (I’m available on Skype for you as needed!), etc.
- Your Superhero Website Planning Workbook to give you an introduction to the process (colors, typography, layouts, the works!)
- An invite to my stellar project management system (plus a video tutorial on how to navigate it). We’ll use it to upload and store all files, task lists, and messages (instead of email) so everything’s in one place, to streamline the process and keep things organized so we don’t miss a thing. You’ll love it.
- Your detailed questionnaire to dive into the purpose of your website, how it should work, etc.
- And more!
What is this exotic “Welcome/Best Practice Call,” you ask?
This is a collaboration and I can’t do this without you! So I designed a brief call for us to run through exactly how we’re gonna work together, housekeeping rules, and more — to help make sure it all runs smoothly.
You submit all your materials
You’ll upload all of your copy, images, etc. to the project management system before I begin designing & building your website.
I need all your content before I begin because it’s the foundation around which I build the website. So if I were to start with dummy text and then upload and format your copy, the structure of the website — the layout or formatting — may have to change as well, which would incur extra costs and delay our project. And I wanna get you your website ASAP because I want you to bring your A-game to the table every time and kick major ass!

Superhero Strategy Session
Time for us to plan your website to perfection, superhero!
All of my custom website packages include a 60-minute Superhero Strategy Session to make sure we create a website that works toward your business goals. We’ll dig into topics like:
- What are the first, second, and third steps you want your ideal peeps to take when they get to your website? We’ll make it super easy for ’em.
- What are you dying to have on it & how could we woo your peeps even more?
- Creating your sitemap
Because a website should be a carefully and thoughtfully designed interactive sales piece that works for you & your business by guiding your visitors through the steps that you want them to take … so your prospects will become clients and subscribers.
We’re not gonna just slap up some menu options and point people to your Contact page before we show them why you’re the answer to their daily biz affirmation. We’re gonna buckle down and get this done the right way. That’s what my cape is for!
I’m now your personal Website Superhero, guiding you through the land of “I don’t know what I don’t know.” I’m gonna save you time and money and it’s gonna feel like drinking tea and eating banana nut muffins together on a Sunday afternoon. Mmmm.
We respond to each other’s messages within 48 business hours to keep our timeline and the project rolling like a boss. We’ll maintain constant, clear, and open communication throughout. I want all your questions!
Wanna get on Skype/the phone? (Your call… pun intended.) You got it!
We launch your new fab website
YUP! Once I’ve tested everything and you’re in love with your new website and have provided your written approval, I will transfer your website to your domain. (The last payment is made 45 days after the project start date or when the project is finished, whichever comes first, to help keep things on track.)
You then receive your Launch Package to wrap things up (plus, a surprise you’ll love!) and we cel-eh-brate.
Time for some bubbly or vanilla tea or chocolate cake (or all three, thankyouverymuch)! This is my party face:
That’s all there is to it. I constantly strive to make it a stress-free, fun, and fruitful adventure. So Imma give you 120%! Ka-pow!
