Frequently asked questions
I'm not an interior designer. Can you still help me?
Yes. While I do specialize in interior designers and other creative professionals, I can work with others. Shoot me an email to inquire.
Will my new website look good on mobile phones?
One hundred percent. All my websites adjust to any device. Try it for yourself. Open any website in my portfolio on your mobile phone.
How easy is it for me to update their site myself after launch?
Because I build on the popular and client friendly Squarespace platform, your website is able to easily evolve with your business. Clients who are comfortable using a computer can do basic tweaks and modifications to their site after launch without relying on a designer, and each of my websites includes a custom walkthrough video.
Can I keep my current domain name?
Absolutely. Your domain name can be pointed to your new website at the time of launch. Note that your old website hosting will no longer be necessary. I build on the Squarespace platform, which hosts all its websites on it's own reliable servers.
What will happen to my old website?
Your old website is literally a collection of files on a server. After launching your new website, subscription to your old server can be discontinued. The essence of your website is the content itself. Think of a website redesign as transcribing words from an old tattered book into a freshly bound book. The essence of the book is the words, not the pages they are printed on.
Will I be able to keep the SEO juice (search engine optimization) they've built up with my current website?
Yes. SEO juice is contained in the URLs of your website, not in the actual files of your old website. When we redesign your website, we will take care to use the same URLs are your current site in order to avoid losing any SEO juice.
Why pay a web designer when there are free options?
For the same reason someone might prefer to pay an interior designer to design their home rather than doing it themselves: professional design and implementation. Also, what I offer goes beyond just the design of your website. I also help you with brand positioning and copywriting.
Can another web designer work on a site after launch?
Easily. Many designers are now familiar with the Squarespace platform, and sharing access through the Squarespace backend requires merely a click.
What if I'm oblivious to all things website related?
My clients may have varying levels of web knowledge and sometimes don't even know which questions to start with. Rest assured, I'm here to help.
