Your Brand New Website
Investing in a new website is a big deal, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. I believe in keeping things simple and being 100% transparent, so let me take you through my step by step web design process and explain exactly what is and isn’t included in your new website package.
We’ll start with a consultation call to discuss what kind of website will work best for you, what platform to build on. We’ll talk through the strategy for your new site, the pages and elements you’ll need, and agree on a launch deadline.
You’ll choose a template, purchase your domain name and your website account. Then we start bringing together your branding, copy and images.
You’ll spend some one-to-one time with a professional copywriter who will help to ensure your copy is optimised for your site.
I’ll customise your chosen template using your branding, copy and images to create a bespoke website you’ll be proud of.
Once the first draft is ready, you’ll be able to take a look at the site at your leisure. I’ll make any required changes and when you are 100% happy with your new site, it will go live!
LAUNCH & SUPPORT
I’ll provide a handover session by Zoom, and walk you through the whole site. I’ll also provide you with tailored, easy to follow demo videos showing you how to maintain and update your website yourself.
You also get two weeks of email support after your site launches. If you don’t want to make future site updates yourself, you can book me to help you.
All about your website package
This website package is perfect for a service-based business owner who needs a brand new, straightforward and manageable ‘business brochure’ website, or a place to sell online courses. (This package is not designed for large complex sites or e-commerce sites to sell lots of physical products.)
I take your branding, words, and images and turn them into a professional website that looks great, is mobile responsive, secure, and easy for you to manage or handover to someone else to manage for you.
What we'll need to get started
Branding (colour palette, fonts and favicon)
I’ll apply your colours and fonts to your site. If you don’t have branding, I can work with you to create a simple but authentic colour palette, and help you to chose some fonts (additional charge).
Copy (the words on your website)
You’ll provide your website copy and this element is possibly the most important of all so that your website copy converts to sales. Many of my clients are comfortable writing the copy themselves, but website copy needs to be done right. Included in your package is an hour with a professional web copywriter who will help you to structure your copy properly. (I will do some light copy-editing and proofreading during the build.)
Photos and graphics
You’ll provide all the images for your site, sharing any professional brand photography you have. If you don’t have brand photography, you can source some suitable ‘stock’ images and graphics. I can also provide this service for an extra cost.
How to get it all together?
Take your time to look over your chosen website template and create the images and copy to fit as closely as you can to each page. I’ll create some shared folders for you to drop your copy and images into.

Happy Website Clients
It was really easy to work with Jackie; she knew exactly what I wanted and the first draft of my website was amazing; she made me a beautiful website in just a couple of weeks.
My new website looks fabulous, I am delighted!
Candy, Retirement Coach
The website looks great, I am really pleased with the end product. Jackie gave me a walk-through to show me how to work the back end of the website. Her advice is easy to digest and I would recommend Jackie to others. Thanks so much.
Nadene, Charity Director
What happens when your new site is ready?
It is very important that you know how to access and manage your new website. We will go take a good look at the back end of your site in our handover call, and if you need them, I’ll send you some easy-to-follow demo videos. We’ll also discuss whether you’ll need ongoing support, or if you’re happy to manage your site yourself. I can also provide you with some further in-depth training.
- Additional rounds of live site revisions are charged at £75 per round.
- Branding work is charged at £200 for research, a 3 colour palette, two fonts and a site favicon.
- If you don’t currently have booking software, I can advise on what will be best, and set it up for you for £35 per hour.
- Creating an image library and bespoke website graphics is charged at £35 per hour.
- Additional video tutorials are charged at £35 per hour.
- Training Hours are charged at £75 per hour.
Why I'm different
I believe that your site should be just that – yours. Forever. This is why I work on the Squarespace and Kajabi platforms. They make your life so much easier because hosting is included and the sites are easy to manage. You buy your own domain and website account and you have 100% access to your site, no ‘middle man’ locking you out, and no wonky hosting that expires or crashes.
[WordPress websites are different and there’s a much steeper learning curve if you’re new to it all. This is why I don’t tend to offer WordPress services for new clients. ]
Once your site is built, I will show you how to manage it yourself, even if you are completely ‘non-techy’.
Website Package future add-ons
You can add any of these services to your website package, or come back and see me when you’re ready to add them.
Additional pages and features
Your new website is probably all you will need for a while, but we can develop the site to fit the needs of your growing business. For example, these pages and features can be added:
- Additional services pages
- Testimonial page
- Portfolio page
- Members area
- Online courses and workshops
- Online store and shopping cart to sell services
£bespoke depending on what you need
Email Marketing packages
A likely next step will be to add email marketing functionality to your website. We can discuss these elements during our Website Planning session. If you have a Kajabi site, these features are ready but will need setting up. If you are on Squarespace, I will connect your site up to Mailerlite; you can choose any of my Email Marketing Packages.
