Let me take care of all things tech and code for you

Do you love designing websites but hate when it’s time to build them?

Do you get angry when you have to get into the technical details of hosting and domains?

Together we can work together, each working in our strengths, to make sure your client has an awesome experience and comes away from their project ‘wowed.’

What I can help with

Questions and Answers

What if I just have a small change or update?

Do you just need someone you can call when you run into technical problems with your clients? I'd love to be available for any maintenance/support problems you run into! I can also take care of all of your hosting and domain setups for any of your clients if you need. I'm available for small fixes and tweaks or if you need more we can setup a retainer.

What all can you take care of?

All of the technical. I can take care of domain setup and hosting migration for all of your projects. I also provide 30 days of support after the project launch and can take care of any maintenance or updates that come up after that as well. I will also provide videos training to your client on how they can use their website.

What files do you need?

Brand files, logo, fonts, patterns, style guide, programmers guide, DETAILED design files, login information, etc. Don't worry I'll give you a detailed checklist of what I need when we start working together.

If you are using Illustrator or Photoshop make sure your layers are named properly and unmerged. Have a file for each page.

Will I be able to see the designs during the process?

Yes! I will give you access to the staging site when I start working on the project. However, I develop locally on my computer so the staging site will probably be updated about once a week.

How does communication work?

That depends on you. Sometimes my clients will want me to talk to the client to make sure we are all on the same page and sometimes they want everything to go through them. Either way is perfectly fine, just make sure I know up front what your preference is.

Should I build cost in or have clients pay you directly?

Whatever you are most comfortable with.

When should I contact you?

From the beginning. I will have questions for the client as well as you are going through the discovery process and it will ensure that the quote I give you is as accurate as possible. Plus, having a developer in from the beginning can make sure we avoid anything that can slow down the project in the development stage.

How do I get you my designs?

Dropbox, Google Drive, InvisionAppZepelin – any of these work great.

What does this cost?

Development projects start at $2000 for a basic site. If you need e-commerce or a membership area setup it will start at $4000.

Can you handle setup and everything?

Yes! Do you need me to take care of the migration and the domain changes? No problem, that's included in any development project on most hosts. Some hosts tend to be a little more complicated so it may cost a little more if you are on one of those. Just let me know what you need at the beginning of the project and I can give you a better idea of what's involved.

What is the timeline?

Typically my projects take around 5 weeks provided I have everything I need when I start. However, that will really depend on the complexity of the project. If we are building out a more robust e-commerce or membership site then it may take longer.

  • I was introduced to Sara through a professional organization (SMPS) and was impressed with both her technical expertise and her friendly and accessible personality. While managing public relations for a national A/E design firm (KSQ Design) I recommended Sara to help the firm with digital marketing efforts.Working with Sara, we found, was like a breath of fresh air. She's an excellent communicator and has the ability to take technical tasks and break them down into simple terms. She was organized, on top of everything, met every deadline and always made herself available for follow up questions. I hope to work with her more in the future; she's a joy and a talented professional.

  • My team has worked with Sara so much that we really consider her part of our team. She always does a fantastic job, and I often receive compliments from our clients on the work she helps them with. I'm also completely confident sending referrals her way when they aren't a good fit for my organization. In an ideal world, all of our vendors and referral partners would be as awesome as Sara!
