MAKING THE WORLD

A BETTER PLACE.

ONE DESIGN AT A TIME.

Does your website come with a disclaimer??

And I don’t mean the legal kind at the bottom of the page that tells people to keep their paws off your content.

I’m referring to the kind where you reluctantly fork over the URL and something along the lines of…

“UMMM, THAT’S A REALLY OLD SITE, I’M IN THE PROCESS OF REBRANDING… I’VE JUST BEEN SO BUSY LATELY!”

…tumbles awkwardly out of your mouth while you silently pray that they bypass the part where they look at your website and skip straight to the strategy call, instead. Because, you excel at strategy calls!

Web design, on the other hand… well, you made it work when you started your business and had all the time and energy in the world, but none of the money. Putting together your own website is the perfect thing to do when you’re first starting out and low on funds. It enables you *actually* get STARTED.

But then, once you’ve been in business for a while, your homemade website starts to feel like the equivalent of wearing laundry day clothes to an important business meeting. And that creates an energetic block around inviting more clients into your life.

INTRODUCING: The All-Inclusive Website

That means branding, design and development. The same eyes on all your moving parts.

Yes, having your site done by me is just like sitting on the beach, sipping piña coladas while getting a massage. I take care of all the aspects: branding, design and development. Which means all you have to do is show up, sit back and enjoy the view. In the end, you’ll walk away with a gorgeous site that FEELS like a luxury brand.

What’s included:

“Mara was gentle and creative in guiding me through building my website. I was scared to be more visible online, and pretty technologically challenged, but she took me through step by step, offering insight, ideas, and support. I’m totally thrilled with the result, we created something together that suits me completely, and is super pretty to boot. Clients who find me through my site often comment on how much they like it, and how “me” it is. My website is an online presence that I actually feel proud of, and makes me feel comfortable becoming more visible. In short, Mara is simply brilliant to work with.

My website redesign with Mara has given me a new found confidence – I’ve started putting myself out there all over the place knowing that I had the web presence to back it up. Since working with Mara two months ago I’ve booked over 10 speaking engagements and appearances!

Working with Mara was a visual dream! She was able to take my ideas and bring them to colorful life as well as give me helpful suggestions to make my site really pop and come to life. I’m sooooo happy I finally invested in working with Mara! In addition to being a fantastic graphic designer she also takes the time to help you sort out branding and come up with fun launch strategies to bring more eyes to your site!

AND, my mailing list grew by a third just in the first week we launched the site!!

I know, investing in a website can be scary business:

…you think that you don’t know what you want! (Don’t worry, that’s why I’m here!)
…you think you “can’t afford it” (It may not be “cheap”, but how much money are you losing out on with your current websit. And, I offer very flexible payment plans.)
…you won’t be able to do your own edits and updates!!! (Yes you will, I use an easy to edit theme and you will be able to make changes all by yourself!)

I got you, let’s chat! Get started here.
