The Custom Website
You’re finally ready to make a website for your business and you want to do it right. You already have branding and just need a web presence. Let’s work together to make your website unique, custom designed, and like no one else out there. You and your business is one of a kind, and your website should be too.
The website makeover
Your current website is outdated, or you’ve never really had the chance to make it match your vision, or maybe you recently rebranded & need your website to match your new branding. Whatever the case, Saltwater Studio is here to help you take your existing website & make it toast worthy.
After purchasing, please download and complete the design questionnaire as thoroughly as possible. Start working on a Pinterest board so I can see your vision. Why? It’s often so much easier easier to show me rather than try to describe the things you like!
Once I receive your content (copy, photos, etc) I’ll start working on your homepage layout. Once you see your homepage, you’ll tell me what you like, what you don’t like and any ideas you have. From there we’ll make the revisions to make your homepage perfect! You get 3 rounds of revisions on your homepage.
Once we nail down your homepage, I’ll move on to working on your other pages (things like the about page, services, blog, contact, etc). You get 3 rounds of revisions per page. Once we have the design set, we’ll go through testing and QA to make sure your site is not only beautiful, but functional as well.
Ready to ditch that dreaded feeling when someone asks you if you have a website? Ready to ditch the doubt and stress and feelings of being overwhelmed? Ready to finally feel excited & proud to show off your website and business?

Frequently Asked Questions

I do offer free consultations! Consultations are 30 minutes and we will discuss what you’re looking for, what you can expect throughout the process, and then any final questions you might have. Click HERE schedule!
What will the process consist of?
The process consists of: consultant, client questionnaire and any photos/copy/videos and login in turned in, mock up of homepage sent to you for revisions, moving on to complete the other pages of the site and finalization of the project and transfer of site ownership.
What will I need to provide in order for you to start working?
Before I can get to work, I will need your questionnaire, any photos and copy that you want on your site and any login information for services such as Mailchimp and Instagram.
Will I need to hire a professional photographer to take pictures for my website or social media page?
Of course not! Many cameras and cell phones will take great, quality pictures that I can use, although the better the photos, the more polished and professional your site will be.
Do I need to purchase a custom website template or will I use a free one?
You can use a free template. I am here to customize your website for you!
Do I need to have a domain name before you create my website?
You do not need to have a domain name before we start working but you will need to purchase one before we launch your site.
Will you create logos for my brand?
I do have a custom logo package that you can purchase, although it is not included in every package!
Do you start working as soon as I purchase the product?
I will start working as soon as you complete the client questionnaire and send me all materials I may need to get started (i.e. photos, copy/text, login information etc.)
Are there fees for specific platform subscriptions? And do I have to purchase this before you get started or is it worked into the price of the package?
There are fees for the platform subscriptions and are not included in the package price. The fees vary across the different platforms as well as the prices for the package for specific platforms.
What can I expect for a timeline from start to finish?
The timeline really depends on how quickly I receive your questionnaire and ALL the materials. Typical turnaround time is 4-6 weeks for website design (after all materials have been received).
How does the revisions process work?
Once you receive your mockups you will tell me what you like, would like to see changed, etc. *All feedback must be in one email, I will not answer feedback that is a multi-email string of thoughts, questions, and revisions. I do not want you to feel rushed, so please take the time to think about it. I want you to LOVE the work I do for you, which is why I ask for your input throughout the process.
Do you offer payment plans?
We do offer payment plans for some of our packages, as well as select customized packages. If you do choose to do a payment plan, 50% down is required, and your second payment is due 4 weeks after. If you second payment is not met, all work will cease until the second payment has cleared plus a $30 late fee.
Will I be able to maintain the website myself once it is complete?
Yes! I will turn everything over to you and you will be able to manage your site completely on your own. I also offer 2 week technical launch support to answer any questions you may have regarding your new site.
Will you write/edit content for any blog or website work?
I don’t write any content for your site, although I am able to grab bits and pieces from different areas (About, Our story, etc.) to use as blurbs if needed. All copy will need to be turned over at the start of the process so I can include it on the website. If you need any help I have a few amazing copywriters I can recommend!
Am I allowed to make changes myself while you are designing?
No. If there are any changes or edits you would like to make, please let me know - it is very difficult if someone else is editing at the same time.Please, please resist the urge to edit your site yourself. I am not responsible if you edit anything and “mess it up” or “break something”. These mistakes will be fixed at an additional cost.
How will I be able to contact you throughout the process (best form of communication)?
All communication will be through email. I work Monday - Friday 8am – 5pm PST. Communication will take place throughout these times, and any emails outside of these times will be answered once regular business hours commence. Please allow 24 for a response.
What platforms do you build websites on?
I use Squarespace, Wordpress & Shopify to build websites. Depending on your needs there are definitely better platforms for different types of websites. During your consultation call we will discuss this and decide which is best suited for you.
Do you offer refunds?
Due to the digital nature of the products, I do not offer refunds.
Do you offer any post launch support?
We offer 2 weeks of post launch support to make sure you have a good handle on managing your new, beautiful website.
