Raise your hand if you have a blog or a website that causes you frustration when things aren't working as they should. And how about that template you purchased, does it look the way you thought it would or do you find yourself wondering "how can I make this site look better?"
Honestly, my hand is in the air right along with yours. Over the years I've built websites for a wide range of companies and individuals and no matter what type of site it is, there is always a level of frustration in creating it.
I've often found that when I can work with someone on a project, well, two heads are often better than one.
I know you could search online for tutorials on anything and everything website related, but I have a feeling that you may not have time for that.
I also know that if you have a blog, the most important place you should be spending time is on creating amazing content, not worrying about your site.
To help get organized on creating great content, I've created a collection of checklists you can use to help you plan out your blog or website. You can find the free printable at the bottom of this post.
What exactly is Web Design Therapy?
I started CreativBlooms.com because I wanted to figure out a way to help other bloggers learn to build and design their sites in the easiest, most frustration-free way.
I really struggled in the beginning of starting my own blog to figure out the best way to help others with their web design issues.
Of course, I can write blog tutorials, or create video tutorials showing how to do different things. I can share my best tips and things I've learned along the way, but the problem I ran into was, how do I figure out what to share?
Every blog is set up differently from the next. Different platforms, plugins, themes, and all the extra "stuff" that gets integrated with your site. Your struggles may be very different from the next blogger.
But I'm on a mission to try and help as many bloggers in the best way I know how. And that led me to create my Web Design Therapy program.
You and I meet on a Zoom call in the comfort of your home and talk about anything and everything related to blog and web design. When you sign up for a session, you will fill out a form that tells me all the areas you need help with.
Web Design Therapy Session with Abby Rike Rockenbaugh - rockthis.org
I'll prepare for our session by taking a look at your site and making a list of suggestions outside of the areas you list on the form.
We'll spend the first few minutes of the session getting to know each other and me asking you some general questions about where you see your site headed so I can continue to customize your session as we go.
My goal is to provide as much value as I can to our session and help you with as many things as we can fit in during our time together. I want you to walk away feeling like you got some really great information that will help you move forward quickly in your site design.
So how do you know if Web Design Therapy is for you?
Web Design Therapy Session with Julie Gerlach Hankins - craftyjulie.com
You are just getting started with creating a blog and are simply not sure what to do first
Depending on the platform you choose, template, plugins, email marketing application, social media platforms and everything else you need to integrate into your site, figuring out what to do first can be overwhelming.
We can take a look together at where you are on your journey, and I can help you map out a plan for what to do next and how to do it.
You have a site but you are not crazy about how it looks, and you just need some guidance
If you are like me, you tend to get a bit of tunnel vision when you work on something so long. I've found that when you have a second set of eyes take a look at your site, it can help you see additional areas where you might need to make changes so your site becomes more user-friendly.
I have all sorts of design tips I can share with you and ways you can bring your design and layout to life.
You may even find that there is a simpler way to do things which will save you lots of time building your site.
You don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on someone else to design your site
Having someone else design your site can get pretty expensive. Sometimes you just really want someone else to handle it so you don't have to worry about it. I totally get it!
Building and designing websites has been an amazing career choice for me. There's no shortage of websites to work on.
But what I've found over the years is that even if you have a designer create your website or blog for you, you still need to know how to maintain it and keep it updated. And if you were not the one who originally created it, it may be even more of a struggle figuring out how to manage what someone else built.
I've seen this happen time and time again.
My goal with each Web Design Therapy session is to empower you to take control of your own site and learn how to create a successful site you love. I want you to feel comfortable with building and designing your site yourself.
You don't have hours to waste looking through tutorials and watching videos
I have to admit, I've become a training-course-aholic. Is that even a thing?
I love a great training course and have a bookmark directory full of them. But they all require time to complete. And many of them take hours to get through.
I also love online tutorials and anything that helps me to learn something new, but again, you have to have the time to search out the right tutorial and even more time to read through it or watch a video.
Web Design Therapy helps you to skip past the hours of tutorial searching or video watching and get straight to just what you need to create a successful website or blog.
We'll zero in on the most important things you need to know to grow your blog and reach the right audience.
You like the idea of working with someone who's been there
Man, have I ever been there!
I truly love what I do. I love building a great website and working to make it successful. It takes patience, practice and a ton of trial-and-error sometimes to get it right.
I've worked with multiple content management systems, loads of templates, dozens of external applications and I want to share my experience with you.
When I first started out as a web designer, it was completely up to me to figure everything out. And I'll admit, it's a great way to learn, but learning that way takes time.
If you are a blogger, then you are probably blogging because you not only want to share your skills and knowledge but also would love for your blog to earn an income to help support you and your family.
The only way for that to happen is for you to focus on creating great content that draws in your perfect reader.
But you also have to keep up with "all the other things" needed to help your site be successful.
Work with someone you can trust to help you create a great blog
Let me help you with all those other things so you can focus on what's most important - creating the most amazing content for your audience.
If you think Web Design Therapy would help you with your blog and web design struggles, I'd love the opportunity to meet and work with you. Whatever the problem, we'll tackle it together!
Still not sure? Here is a video I created to talk a little more about how Web Design Therapy may be a great fit for you!
