Michaela Latavanha Bonfires and Ukuleles Web Design

I got a good feel of your writing abilities via your newsletter. You really went above & beyond and delivered high-quality work on time, plus you over delivered with swipe files and all sort of goodies. You are a true gem. I'm so glad I found you.

There is no one size fits all partnership.  

 
 

Squarespace designers who have worked with me have:

  • Raised their rates. Like 400% rate increase.
     
  • Developed quick to implement Squarespace design packages so that they could say yes to good-fit clients on tight budgets.
     
  • Hosted in person workshops to help entrepreneurs grow their businesses, write SEO-friendly blogs (and update their Squarespace websites).
     
  • Added new services to their web design packages that they don’t have to do themselves (because I do it), but that their clients love.
 

What will our partnership look like?

 

FAQ

 

Q1. What are your rates?

I believe in collaboration not outsourcing (though there's nothing wrong with outsourcing per se.) I partner with - not work for - Squarespace web designers because I want to help you grow your web design business.

In other words, help you make money, keep your projects on track and make your clients happy. My fixed rate project fees start at CAD$800 and I schedule work in blocks of time (I'm all about focus and efficiency!)

You tack my rate onto your project quote, send a proposal over to your client, your client says YES. We deliver a fabulous product and your client is thrilled. Triple win!

Q2. Do you offer hourly editorial, copywriting and Squarespace services?

Yes, I offer hourly services - after we've first partnered up on at least one project at a fixed rate.

If we like working together and you have clients that need an hour or two of Squarespace updating, copywriting or copy editing that you don't have time for, I can help you at my hourly rate of CAD$85/hour.

Minimum booking is 2 hours.

Q3. My clients need one-on-one training. Do you teach how to use Squarespace?

Yes I do. Get in touch to discuss how to include my training services in your cost quotes or as an add on service.

Q4. Aren’t you in direct competition with me?

Uh, heck no! Ok, Listen up. I’m pretty proud of my DIY website - design-wise and I know Squarespace inside and out. But let’s face it. I’m not a graphic designer. I’m verbal. I dream in words, not images. And I’m a process person. That’s why we’re probably the perfect fit.

Q5. I’m not good at sales. Can you help with that?

Truth be told, I'm not all that good at sales either. I’m much better behind the scenes getting the work done while you network and woo clients.

I’m the kind of person who does a craptastic job interview but once I get the job, bosses are all, woah, where did this worker bee come from? But yeah, back to sales.

If you’re not good at sales, partnering with me is probably not the best choice because you’ll need to be confident about raising your rates and getting clients.

Q6. What’s your work style?

Funny. I was just going to ask you that myself! ;)

I work in blocks of time - usually half or full days. You’ll get the best partnership from me that way.

I’m not into inefficient back & forth emails and text messages, especially at 9pm. Let’s get your clients out of that habit. I don’t expect you or your clients to be available all day when I’m working on your project, but I do expect you to be available for feedback / revisions at set times - so that we make decisions quickly and don’t waffle and waste time.

Pet peeve = wasting time. There, I said it.

Q7. What do you mean "Don't Spend a Cent." Aren't I paying you?

No (and yes). My rates are my rates. If you partner with me, you'll integrate those rates into your design package fees or proposals trusting that I'll do my part of the project - making for a very happy client.

You don't pay out from your current rate - you raise your rates first. By providing all this extra value to your client, you'll add to your own bottom line.

The yes part is that I'm working behind the scenes. Your client pays you. You pay me. Simple.

Q8. What if, after we work together on a project using a smooth streamlined system and charging higher rates, I realize I can do it myself (or find someone much cheaper).

Then yay! I've done my job. If you don't need me anymore, that's fantastic. More money in your pocket. I have a 'no hard feelings' clause in my business - you can take what you learn by partnering with me and do it yourself or find someone else, if you want.

It all really depends on what kind of partnership we develop together how long and how often we work together.
