FAQS ABOUT THE DESIGN PROCESS
IS SQUARESPACE RIGHT FOR MY NEEDS?
Squarespace is perfect for entrepreneurs, creative professionals, small business owners, and bloggers who value clean, easy to navigate sites. Squarespace is intuitive to use, making website upkeep headache-free and manageable within your end (instead of hiring out each time you need to change one word!). Squarespace offers minimal and modern design, and endless opportunities to personalise.
HOW MUCH DOES USING SQUARESPACE COST?
Most of my clients use the $12 or $18/month plan. Included in this is the cost of website hosting. You'll also need to purchase a domain name (roughly $10-$20/year) if you don't already own one with another host (ie GoDaddy).
WHAT DO I NEED TO HAVE READY TO WORK WITH YOU?
A design without content will make your website look a little … well, naked.
If you have photos and text content prepared (say, on a current website) choose the next available design date.
If you need to write your text content and take photos, choose a start date 1 month out.
If you'll be hiring others to write your text and take photos, choose a start date 2+ months out. Speak with your photographer and copywriter to get a firm estimate of how long the project(s) will take them and book accordingly.
These suggestions work for most client's, however be sure to adjust according to how busy your schedule is.
IF I BOOK TODAY, HOW MUCH DO I PAY?
You pay 50% of your package price; this saves your spot in the design calendar. Then on the last day of your two week design period, just before launch, you'll pay the 50% remainder.
HOW MUCH TIME WILL THIS TAKE ME?
Pre-design client homework: 1 hr - 5+ hrs. This includes filling in the Brand + Styling Questionnaire & compiling content. If you already have photos and text ready (perhaps from a previous site), closer to 1 hr, if you need to take photos or write copy, closer to 5+ depending on if you are hiring someone to support you or dropping in to create mode and providing it yourself.
