I use Canva Pro to create graphics for clients – whether that’s graphics for Insta posts and stories, logos, magazine ads, online ads, banners, invites, posters etc.
I am not a professional “website designer”, in that I don’t design complicated websites, however I know my way around WordPress and have effectively designed and created WordPress blogs / websites for my own and other people’s businesses, communities and organisations.
WordPress hosted sites account for almost half of all US websites, so it’s a proven platform to create great business website and very easy to manage,
Everyone needs different help and I will address each client’s needs on an individual basis. I can tailor activity to suit your business, but essentially most clients will go for either retainer (set up and ongoing management) or project (set up only):
- Retainer – creation and on-going management: Advice on social media, creation, or consolidation and streamlining of your existing ones (including your blog), set up and full day-to-day management and updates of your social media accounts.
- Project – creation, consolidation and over to you! Advice on social media, creation of new social media accounts or consolidation and streamlining of your existing ones (including your blog) plus tutorial on how to manage them efficiently yourself, how to save time and stress by using apps such as Hootsuite or Buffer and how to market yourself via social media. Then it’s over to you!
