The technical bit.

All of the websites I create are built and hosted on the Squarespace platform. This offers both peace of mind and security for you as a business owner, and the ultimate flexibility for me as a designer. It’s the best of both worlds and I can’t recommend it enough.


Squarespace Platform Features

 

AN ESTABLISHED PROVIDER

Squarespace launched in 2003 and has grown steadily since, gaining over a million customers over the years. It is a robust, well-funded and well-regarded company. I personally have built sites on it since 2010 and the platform is continuously improving.

24/7 CUSTOMER SUPPORT

The Customer Care team at Squarespace is available seven days a week, 24-hours a day, and has won several awards for outstanding customer support. They are always super responsive and helpful!

FULLY MANAGED

Squarespace is a self-contained platform that works seamlessly and is fully managed from top to bottom. This means there’s never any need to update software, plugins, or widgets; patch security vulnerabilities; or worry that changing one component might break something else. It also means there’s rarely any need to investigate or pay for third-party apps or plugins since most functionality is native to Squarespace.

built-in seo

Every Squarespace website is equipped with all the elements needed for a strong SEO strategy. Site descriptions, page titles, custom URLs, search-friendly formatting, and other key elements are all easily managed. Each site also generates a sitemap automatically that helps Google crawl, understand, and rank a website.

RESPONSIVE DESIGN

Mobile traffic now accounts for more than half of all website traffic. With that in mind, it’s critical that websites perform across any device and screen size. Every Squarespace template includes a unique mobile experience that matches the overall style of the website, so content will look great on every device, every time.

WEBSITE METRICS

You’ll have access to website metrics such as visitor counts, popular content and traffic sources as standard. Pro and Commerce plans can enjoy even more powerful metrics around forms and buttons, sales and abandoned cart data.

SSL {SECURE SOCKETS LAYER}

Whilst this may sound SUPER technical, it is a must for any modern website. Squarespace offers free SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates for all Squarespace Domains and third-party domains connected and pointing to a Squarespace site. With SSL enabled, your website visitors will enjoy a secure connection on every page.

UNLIMITED BANDWITH & STORAGE

Squarespace is equipped to handle high amounts of traffic as well as allow you to store as much data as you need within your website.

20% OFF HOSTING

As a Squarespace Circle Member, I can pass on a rather welcoming saving to you for your first year of hosting – a 20% discount.

OWN A WEBSITE THAT TRULY HELPS YOU GROW & PROSPER

Compelling copy.

It can be extremely challenging to write copy for your website that reads well, lands your message and aligns with your brand values. As an experienced writer, ex-editor and content director I’m comfortable with crafting beautiful bios, headlines and page copy to make your website stand out from the boring competition – because words matter and so does your business.

Blogging made easy.

Writing a blog is an excellent way to keep visitors coming back to your site regularly which in turn, tells Google that your site is relevant, current and potentially worth indexing. I’ll show you how to create beautiful blog posts as well as categorise and tag them to help visitors easily browse your archives. I can also help you with your blog strategy too – just ask about my blog kit!

Powerful commerce.

From beautiful product galleries, categories and sale options to offers, gift cards and promotional banners, we’ll create an online store that makes it a pleasure for your customers to shop with you. If you’re ready, you can also benefit from advanced sales features such as abandoned cart recovery, flexible discounts and product subscriptions.

Kind words

Celia has designed two websites for me in the past ten years. I would not hunt anywhere else for someone as professional, intelligent and lovely to work with. She gets straight to the nub of what is needed, has fantastic ideas and is exceptionally efficient. Her websites are straightforward to use and up to date in style and design. I could not recommend her and her skills more highly. And incidentally, you will have some fun along the way!

My approach & process

There are many elements to consider and decisions to be made when it comes to creating a new brand and website – it’s quite likely that you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by it all! It’s my job to take the stress out of the process so you can focus on your day-to-day. Here’s how a typical project with me works from start to finish:

celia-lockley-spacer-graphic-pink.png
 
 

START

diamond-arrows.png

// 01 //

BOOK YOUR SLOT

Your project begins when I receive your booking request for a build slot . Build slots are specific windows of time in my diary, dedicated to your website build – and yours alone. Although you’ll need to specify which website package and add-ons you’re after at this stage, we can easily customise or change things around once I review your request and we’ve had a chance to discuss things in more detail.

diamond-arrows.png

// 02 //

PAY DEPOSIT & RETURN CONTRACT

Following a booking call to confirm all your details, I’ll pop across an invoice and contract for you to sign. In order to secure your build slot you’ll need to return a signed contract and pay a 50% deposit. The remaining 50% is due no later than 1 week prior to completion.

diamond-arrows.png

// 03 //

DISCOVERY QUESTIONNAIRE

My first priority before even thinking about building your first web page and/or crafting your new branding is to understand you and your business. I want to know about everything that makes you tick professionally; your ambitions, goals, competitors, ideas, inspiration and challenges. When I have a solid understanding of what you’re trying to achieve I can work my magic on your branding and website – producing a result that’s as authentic as it is accurate to the needs of your visitors and customers. I’ll send you a Discovery Questionnaire once your build slot is secured. Be prepared to spend a good chunk of time on this – it’s an essential part of the process to ensure I have a full and informative brief about everything you want and need.

diamond-arrows.png

// 04 //

organise-illuminate-logo-grey.png

While you’re busy completing your Discovery Questionnaire I’ll send you your full Organise & Illuminate guidelines – a comprehensive guide to preparing all of your website content ahead of the build.

diamond-arrows.png

// 05 //

CONTENT & ASSETS

I’ll ask you to provide all of your copy, images, videos, documents, prices, product inventory, social logins and so forth about a week before we start the design phase {sooner if you’re on a fast track timeline!}. I’ll provide you with a secure online location to upload your files so that you don’t have to worry about trying to attach everything on email.

diamond-arrows.png

// 06 //

DESIGN PHASe commences

If you’ve signed up for one of my branding packages, this will be the first element of the design phase. Once I have options to share with you, I’ll also build some examples into a web page or two so that you can see not just flat logo ideas but also a preview of how your branding will come to life on your new website. If you’ve already got branding, I’ll mock this up into a series of initial web pages for your review to kick start the web design process.

diamond-arrows.png

// 07 //

DESIGN REVIEW & AMENDS

Having sent you your initial branding and web page mocks, I’ll ask for your feedback in this review phase plus any amendments required. You’ll then receive an updated version of everything to review before we move into the build phase.

// 08 //

BUILD PHASE

The meaty, exciting part – building out your entire new site, based on the agreed design and branding you’ve chosen. This phase can take several weeks depending on the size and scale of site you need, or just a few days if you’re having one of my fast-track, simple yet beautiful portfolio sites!

diamond-arrows.png

// 09 //

FINALising & TESTING

I’ll send you a link to your new website for one final review. During this time your site will be tested and proofed one final time. Your final payment will also be due now.

LAUNCH

You’re live!

Share your beautiful new branding and website with the world, and don’t forget to tell them where you got it from…
