Having a website is like having a storefront and a sign in front of your shop in the old days.
In the old days, nobody knew you existed without the storefront and a sign, in the modern days your non-existent without a website.
Your site becomes even more important when you plan on selling your creative work online. Your site needs to be a place where people can get to know you better.
I can tell you from my own experience that I wasted a lot of time, having someone else help me build and update it for me, trying to make my website as perfect as possible and being dependent on others to make quick, seemingly easy changes.
For me, it felt empowering when I finally learned how to create and update my website.
I was so relieved when I finally found Squarespace!
It was finally possible for me to do quickly, at a moment’s notice, and create promotions, without planning everything in detail months before, so someone else had the time to set it up for me. And to be honest…that someone, for me, has always been my husband. He tried his best to make all the changes as fast as possible. However, he had a full-time job, so building my site was only going to happen in the spare moments.
The technical ease of Squarespace surprised me! I'm not a programmer, nor do I know anything about programming whatsoever, however when using Squarespace I don't need to know anything about it.
All I need is right there on the platform.
I know from working with clients that sometimes, you delay building your site for years because you think you haven’t found the right platform for it. Let me tell you
- Squarespace will be the solution for you.
Just finding the right platform to build your site on won't solve all the problems!
For example, you might be like Sylvia, a client of mine, who started to build her website years ago. When we started working together to get her business off the ground, we discovered the real reason she couldn’t get her site and her business out into the world.
She lacked clarity in her business!
You need to have clarity in your business, before you can start planning and creating your site.
When you know what your want for your business and life, what your ideal client needs and wants and how you want to present your creative business visually, the whole website building process becomes easy!
Wherever you're stuck in the process of creating your site, my three step program will help you get your site up and running in no time!
In this course, you'll find the proven step-by-step method I use with my clients to get their site and business up and running as quickly as possible.
Let's be honest, just because you have your storefront and sign out in the world, doesn't mean that you'll have a thriving creative business.
So much more goes into making sure that your business is up and running that you shouldn't waste extra time and money on creating your website.
You'll need the time and funds for other tasks like: marketing, creating your creative work, going out into the world to build up a network...
I can't wait to do this together.
Let's get this party started!
Create your website with ease, is a three Phase plan to get your site up and running!
In this first Phase, we’ll take a step back and look at your creative business as a whole.

Plus of course, you'll be coming up with a timeline for the building process.
Then in the third phase, we'll get started with the actual building process.
I'll show you in short bite sized how-to videos:

You have questions, I have answers:
How do I get access to the course?
During the sign up process, you generate your own login name and password for our membership-site, where you'll be able to login and access all the course materials right away.
If you’re already a member of one of our courses, for example our free mini course, you will be able to login with the login name and password you already created.
What if I'm just starting out as a creative?
That's completely fine.
The only thing you need to know is that the program is designed for creatives that already have a healthy creative process. So if you’re still figuring out what it is you want to create than this program might not be the right fit for you.
How much time do I need to commit to the program?
You can go as fast or slow as you would like.
If you only have one hour a week, major progress can be achieved
if you work on the course and the implementation of your new knowledge consistent.
Do I need to be tech savvy?
You don't need to be tech savvy!
However you should be able to start up your computer, find the browser, click on a link and use a smartphone ;)
The rest we will figure out together!
What if I'm a professional creative for a long time already?
What if I'm a professional creative for a long time already?
During the program, we will focus on creating the website of your creative adventure.
Having experience in the creative field will benefit you, even though it won't be the focus of this course.
I'm not making any money yet and the investment scares me!
Should I take the leap and join the course anyways?
I don't recommend that you spend your last few dollars on any training program out there!
However, when learning and implementing the strategies I teach you in this course you will be able to see results within the next few weeks.
If you implement your new knowledge right away and you’re ready to do the work, this course can definitely help you set up your website quickly!
Are there requirements to join the cours?
You absolutely need to know what you’re creating!
What's your creative product or service? What are you offering?
When you don't know yet what you’re creating and when you’re still searching for the right medium, this program is not the right fit for you.
The most important requirement is that you need to be willing to do the work. If you implement the online marketing system I'm teaching you, you will see results, but not without doing the work.
I can't help you b out of thin air, so you will have to do the work in order to create the website of your dreams.
