I get asked a ton of questions every day…but here are the most frequently asked questions I get.
WHAT DO I DO?
I do a lot of things. But as it relates to Bella Creative Media, I will build your website. WHY? Because its fricken hard and I am damn good at it, and you don’t have the time or patience.
WHAT THEMES DO I USE?
That’s a loaded question. 99% of the websites I have built have been ‘wordpress’ based using either Headway, Blox, or Divi and I customize the shit out of them until you are satisfied. 1% of websites I have done have been on self hosted sites like Shopify or Squarespace. Please make note that there are fees associated with all of these themes or sites and that is to be paid for by you.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
An initial conversation on the phone or on Facetime/Skype. We will discuss what your needs are now for a site and what you want it to be going forward. It definitely helps with the process of the design and layout.
WHAT IS NEEDED TO GET STARTED?
Your domain, obviously. I like to use GoDaddy, and of course you need to host it somewhere. I prefer Hostgator however Squarespace or Shopify are self hosted sites. You will also need all of your photos and images for the website, content and copy for it as well.
WHAT WILL NOT BE DONE BY ME?
That is a great question and I am so happy I put it in here for you to read…so pay attention. The following list is a general list of things that is NOT included in Bella Creative Media’s list of services: Graphic Design (unless mutually agreed upon), Photo Touch Ups, Consultant, Life Coach, Business Coach, Psycho Therapist and trust me when I say, I AM NOT A COPY WRITER! The word “F&CK”, every other word in every sentence is usually frowned upon with Google. So I don’t want to do it. It makes me feel like a dirty, tired hooker. If you need a referral to a kick ass copy writer, let me know. I will give you the hook up.
I also do NOT purchase your domain, hosting or theme. Those are at a additional cost to you. (btw, I will need all the login information for everything, prior to starting.)
Am I making myself clear? Are we seeing eye to eye yet?
DO I RECOMMEND EVERYTHING THAT IS LISTED ON MY SITE AND AM I COMPENSATED FOR SUCH LINKS AND REVIEWS?
You bet your bottom dollar that if I can make a buck on an affiliate link, I am going to. Please know that I don’t recommend something or link to another site or product unless I 150% believe in that product, person, place or thing. If I don’t have a favorable review of a product, I will say so in a video and make it so perfectly clear that you will be yelling at me to shut the hell up!
WILL YOU PROVIDE TRAINING AFTER THE WEBSITE IS BUILT?
Of course I will. That wouldn’t be cool to not show you how to use your site. You will get a 60 minute training session with me after the site is built. If you need help beyond that or down the road, you need something changed and you don’t know how to do that, you can pay me to do it at the rate of $100 per hour. (billed in 30 minute increments) I will give you an estimate of the job before starting. Work by me on your site after it has been completed and your training is done, must be paid up front. I don’t do IOU’s or “I’ll catch ya next time”.
