Web Design

What I Do…

I am a web designer. I am not a web developer. That means my focus and strengths are geared toward the look and feel of the website. I create simple, great-looking and responsive WordPress websites. 

If you need a large website with complex functionality and security features, I may not be the right person for you. 

I will install WordPress on your hosting server, set up the Divi responsive theme and personalize it with your logo, color palette, and branding. I will create and design the pages you need, format your blog page, create starter templates and make everything look just right before I hand it over to you. I also teach you how to edit or add content.

What I Don’t Do:

  • Domain Registration
  • Hosting
  • SSL Certificates
  • Security Scanning
  • Backups
  • eCommerce
  • Copywriting / Blogging
  • SEO

Domain & Hosting Provider

YOU are responsible for registering your own domain and for buying a hosting package with the provider of your choosing. I generally suggest Go Daddy for domain registration. But for hosting, SiteGround is my favorite provider and I recommend it to all my clients.

Website Maintenance Options

What I Do…

I offer annual maintenance plans to my web design clients. That means that once a month I log into your website to make sure that WordPress, the Divi theme and any plugins you are using are up-to-date. Depending on which plan you select, I may also do biannual and quarterly content updates for you. 

You have the freedom to perform all updates without BlackStone Studio, except for the Divi theme. The theme will be licensed through BlackStone Studio, and you can use it freely on your site after we have installed it, but you will not be able to update the theme version on your own unless you purchase your own license. 

What I Don’t Do:

  • FREE updates
  • Perform Backups
  • Guarantee Perfection… with every update there will be glitches, but I do my best to stay on top of them and to fix any issues related to the website’s design.

      Updates As Needed

       If you decide an annual maintenance plan is not for you. You can hire me as needed to update the content or theme on your website, however, please understand that this option may not be cost-effective in the long run.

      Month to Month Content Updates

      Starts at $35*

      Website content updates include text or picture changes (up to 15 images for galleries) and minor design tweaks on existing pages. Some Restrictions Apply.

      Updates can be requested once a month. The client is billed only for the months in which updates were done. The cost is affected by the number of revisions and updates that are requested.*

      Does not include: New pages, custom programming, special features, structural/design changes or blogging.

      Theme Updates

      Starts at $35*

      Theme updates are rolled out by the third party vendor at their own discretion. Updates may include new features, compatibility changes, glitch fixes, security patches, etc. While we perform a theme update, we will check that all your website software is up to dateSome Restrictions Apply.

      We highly recommend hiring us for theme updates since your website theme is personalized using a child theme and may require adjustments after the update is done.

      Contact me for additional pricing if none of the available packages fit your business needs.
