webmaster-services

Need someone to manage the content, updates and maintenance of your website? I offer webmaster services for WordPress based sites. Services include copywriting, image search, social media sharing, WordPress maintenance (updates and backups), store maintenance, etc. Let’s chat to discuss specifics!

Other Services

I also offer Big Cartel Shop, Zenfolio, ProPhoto and WooCommerce set up and design, custom photo greeting cards/invitations/announcements, and logo/branding development. Want more information? Let’s chat!

Design Process

I require a deposit to secure a spot in my queue. I typically have a 6-8 week waiting list. Prior to beginning your project we can chat via email, phone or Skype so I can gather information from our conversation(s) I will also ask you to complete a 10 question design questionnaire. From there, I mock up a design concept (or two, depending on the project) based on your ideas, sample links and specs. I send design comps via PDF files. We can tweak the design you choose to achieve the look you’re going for within three revisions. (Subsequent mock ups are $100 each.) Finally, the design is applied to your new or existing site and  you take the wheel!

Terms of Service

My terms of service are simple…
  • A non-refundable deposit of $100 is required to secure a spot on my waiting list.
  • Payment is due in full before any work begins. (If this isn’t possible at the time we begin, the project will be rescheduled at the next available opening in my queue and the deposit will be lost.). After 2 cancellations on the same project, I reserve the right to refuse future rescheduling.
  • Large lapses of time between revisions will result in additional fees. I will do my best to keep the project moving forward, but I won’t pester. :) Please provide content, material, samples and ideas in a timely manner.
  • I listen very closely to your ideas and vision and couple that with my design experience and expertise. Therefore, each project (i.e. logo, website design, blog design) includes 3 revisions. Subsequent revisions incur additional fees.
  • My office hours are 8:00-4:00, Tuesday-Friday. I don’t work or answer emails after 5:00 (weekdays) or on the weekend. Because at the end of the day, my family comes first. ;)

I use and highly recommend Hostgator, Bluehost and RFE for web hosting and domain services.
