Site Features

WordPress

WordPress.org is one of the most trusted and widely used website platforms. All my websites are built on WordPress. It’s flexible, SEO friendly, and customizable. And with thousands of plugins, WordPress is all you need to make your website amazing!

Divi

Your website will be built with Divi, a WordPress theme and visual page builder from Elegant Themes. With Divi your website is fully customizable through modules and custom CSS code. Divi is user-friendly and provides a simple interface to easily manage your content.

Flywheel

Flywheel is my all-time favorite hosting company and is where all the sites that I build are hosted! They have custom built their services specifically for the WordPress platform. Flywheel’s clean and user-friendly interface, fast speed, and security make hosting an easy choice.

Mobile Responsive

Having a website with a mobile responsive design is a must. Many of our clients use their smartphones or tablets to perform searches for their next service provider, so you want your website to look just as good on a phone or tablet as it does on a laptop or desktop.

U

SEO + Image Optimization

I have SEO in mind throughout the entire design process, so as I am formatting your site, adding content and images, installing plugins, and entering code, you can be sure that Google will be pleased. I am guided by Yoast SEO to ensure that your site is fully optimized.

f

Consistent Branding

By opting for a fully custom design, you will receive a website that will consistently reflect your brand through a distinct color palette, a careful selection of typography, and an overall design and message that will resonate with your ideal clients.

Affordable

The costs for building websites are all across the board, so it can be difficult to know what’s a fair price. As with any service, you typically get what you pay for. Custom websites can run from $2,000, $5,000, or $10,000+ depending on the size and features of the site. Most custom designed websites for therapists and healers are priced in the $2,000 to $7,000 range.

Quality Stock Images

Only high quality stock images will be used on your site. I typically source these images through Unsplash, Pexels, or other sites offering a variety of high resoultion photos. If you have your own photos, or have purchased stock images elsewhere, I will be happy to include them on your site.

Custom Design

A custom design will allow your website to showcase your unique self and reflect your brand. My custom websites are build from the ground up with you and your clients in mind.

The Process

#1 Let's Chat

If you are interested in my Web Design Services, let’s hop on the phone and chat for about 10 minutes to get an idea if we will be a good fit to work together on your project. If we decide to move forward, we will schedule a time to meet online via video conferencing to begin our journey. I’ll also invite you to join Asana, my online project management tool, so that we can stay on track with your project. Within Asana, you will review and sign off on our contract.

#2 Vision

During our video conference I will be learning more about your vision and other particulars related to the design of your site. I will set aside up to 2 hours so that I can get a clear picture of the vision you have for your site.

#3 Initial Payment

Upon completion of our video conference, I will require a payment of 50% of the total cost of the project in order to begin work. Note: All payments are non-refundable, as you are paying for my time.

#4 Design

Now that I have an idea of the vision you have for your website, I can get to work on designing, coding, and bringing your vision to life.

#5 Your Part

While I’m working on the design of the site, you will be providing me with your website copy, photos, and other details needed for your site.

#6 Review

I’ll push your design to a password protected Demo Site with Flywheel so that you will be able to review and provide feedback.

#7 Final Payment

The final payment of 50% of the total cost of the project, + any additional charges incurred during development, will be due.

#8 Launch

It’s now time for your site to go live! Start showing off your new website, and get ready for your ideal clients to connect with you!

Wordpress Hosting with Flywheel

What is Hosting?...

In simple terms, hosting allows your site to be seen on the internet; essentially, you are renting space for your website on the internet. In therapist terms, hosting can be compared to the rent we pay for our office space so that we can meet with our clients.

WordPress Hosting with Flywheel is $14/month. With this plan, once your site is built and ready to go, I will transfer the billing over to you. You will be responsible for maintaining your site and installing WordPress, Divi Theme, and Plugin updates. You will also have all the awesome features that Flywheel offers and I will remain a collaborator on your website. Because I remain a collaborator, you can always reach out to me should you need any technical or design support and you will be billed at my standard rate of $100/hour, prorated.

If you would like ongoing support for your site, please see the monthly support plan options below. Note that these plans are in addition to the cost of hosting.

Support Plans for WordPress + Divi

If you don’t have the time or desire to maintain your website, a monthly support plan may be beneficial for you. You can spend your time with clients, while I ensure your website is secure and running smoothly.

If your plan includes Web Design Services, you can provide me with a list of tasks to complete on your website and I will work until the time has been reached. If the tasks take more than the allotted time each month, you can decide to have the work completed at my hourly rate ($100/hour), or wait for the next month and I can pick up the tasks where I left off. Please note that unused time does not carry over into the next month.

Plans are automatically renewed on a monthly basis and you may cancel, upgrade, or downgrade at any time.

I am a one-woman-show, therefore I have limited spots available for the monthly support plans. Please inquire if you are interested in a support plan by emailing me at mountainpracticejourneys@gmail.com.

Questions

How long will it take to build my site?

4 to 6 weeks

This assumes that you have your content (web copy and photos) ready to go.

If you are really on it, have flexible meeting times, and can get me the info that I need quickly – your site could be done in under 4 weeks.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes and No. I do require that you make a payment of 50% of the total cost of the project before I begin any work on your site. I refer to this as a payment instead of a deposit because it is non-refundable. 

With web design services, you’re not being charged for a product, you’re being charged for time. Time is non-refundable; therefore, all services are non-refundable.

The remaining 50%, + any additional services, is due prior to the launch of your site.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes. If you are unable to afford the two 50% payments, you may be approved for a payment plan.

For the $2,500 Custom Website, you may be eligible for a payment plan of $250/month for 10 months.

For the $3,000 Custom Website + Blog, you may be eligible for a payment plan of $300/month for 10 months.

Should your project have a different total cost, the monthly payment plan will be the total cost of the project divided by 10 months.

Please inquire if you are interested in a payment plan by emailing me at mountainpracticejourneys@gmail.com.

Where do I get a domain name?

I recommend Namecheap for purchasing a domain name. Head on over to the website and search for your preferred domain to see if it is available. A domain name typically costs around $10 a year, and will be renewed on an annual basis.

Who do you use for hosting?

I have partnered as a affiliate with Flywheel to host the sites that I build. I am really impressed with with this company. They specialize in WordPress and their servers are optimized for the specific needs of WordPress. Just like it’s important for us therapists to have a specialty or niche, WordPress is Flywheel’s niche. Their servers are super speedy and configure caching, so you don’t have to bother with caching plugins ever again. Your site will be backed up nightly, so you can rest easy knowing your site will not be lost in the ethers. Flywheel ensures that your site is malware-free, but if your site is ever compromised they will fix it for free. They have amazing customer support and offer a free SSL certificate for your site.

What if I have already purchased hosting?

I can still design your website, and migrate the site to your hosting provider.

Do I have to provide my own written content for my site?

Yes. As of this time, I do not provide copywriting services. However, if writing is not your thing, you can hire a professional to write the content for your site. Here are a few recommendations of copywriters who work specifically with therapists: Marissa Lawton, CounselingWise, Marisa Goudy, and Catherine McConnell.

When adding the written content you provide me to your website, I do provide copyediting services and may make minor changes in formatting and wording for SEO purposes.

What are the costs associated with a website?

Design: A one time cost.

Hosting: A monthly fee, averaging around $15/month. I recommend Flywheel for hosting.

Domain Name: A yearly fee, averaging around $10/year. I recommend Namecheap for domain names.

Do you only build websites for therapists?

Therapist websites are my specialty, but I am open to designing other types of sites that are similar in nature. If you would like for me to design your site, just give me a call (828.708.7958) and we can discuss your vision.

Can I hire you to work on my existing website?

Only if your website happens to be on the WordPress platform, and built with the Divi theme. I specialize in WordPress and Divi, and prefer to work within this realm as this is where my expertise lies.
