WordPress websites

for brilliant businesses

When it comes to your website, are you fed up with….

– Your mate’s wife’s son can only get to it after his other work, because he’s doing you a favour?
– Web designers who reply to your emails but confuse you with their replies or worse, ignore you
– The struggle to manage your website yourself and panic that you don’t have the right training you need
– Companies who seem to hold your website hostage if you try and do anything to it yourself

If this feels familiar, then you are welcome here.

Here at Sassy and Soft I handhold you through how to access and edit your website, how to safely and securely host your website and everything in between. Need to send an emergency email in the middle of the night? We won’t quite reply to then and then but we will be available every weekday to support you and help you resolve it.

how wordpress web design with me works

short version

You provide your branding, copy and images (don’t have this? I can hook you up with my brilliantly talented network). I design a beautiful website that will get you found on Google. Boom!

step by step guide:

Step One

I design you a website using the Divi theme on WordPress complete with video tutorials to learn how to upload content yourself post-launch

Step two

We meet and you tell me all about your business goals, the types of people coming to look at your website and what kind of services you sell.

Step three

We meet and you tell me all about your business goals, the types of people coming to look at your website and what kind of services you sell.

Step four

I send over a proposal and you agree to it, choosing a payment instalment plan that works for you

Step four

It’s time for you to send me:

  • the words you want to put on your website

For this, I can help you with the SEO part, or I can connect you with talented copywriters

  • the images and photos you want to put on your website

I will make sure the images are Google-friendly, and I can also put you in touch with fantastic photographers

  • your beautiful branding (logo, fonts, colours & details)

If you need more support here, I can hook you up with my network of incredible brand designers

Step five

I now take time to build your website pages with the content you’ve provided and send to you for approval with up to 3 rounds of changes.

If you have a live website already, I will create the new website on my own platform so it does not disturb the live website.

I ensure the website is fully SEO optimised from placing the right keywords in the right spots to making sure your images are tagged, and your website loads nice and quickly.

The whole process is fully managed by me and you are completely supported all the way from seedling to launch and beyond!

ADD ONS

If you have a blog or wish to add a blog to your website package, this can be arranged and I can give you advice on what to blog, how to blog along with templates

All pages are optimised using the keywords from my research for your business, but if you wish to rewrite any pages then I can refer you to a copywriter or we can do this inhouse at an additional fee.

Additional pages and functionality can be added to any of the above packages at an additional cost.

Hosting your new website is included in the cost whilst it’s being built and not live but once the website launches and is made public, you have the option of hosting your new website with me or with your current provider.

Check out my hosting packages here.

All websites designed by me are fully optimised for SEO. This will not cost extra. I will review all copy sent by you, and ensure you have the right keywords set for you to get found on Google.

I will also provide guidance included in the cost on how to continue working on your SEO post launch, you can learn how to get visible with my membership community over on Maddy Shine or you can check out my SEO services here.

what happens after launching the website?

I will provide video tutorials to show you how to update your pages + images (or you can book me to do this in the future, your choice)

You can book me for an in-person training session (I heard this is rare, so I’m happy to travel to you!)

You can hire me to do your SEO (check my SEO services here) so you can continue your visibility journey OR you can learn how to do this yourself in my Maddy Shine community.

Want something more bespoke?

Want something more bespoke instead of a complete revamp of your website? Here are just a few of the ways you can hire me to work on your website without doing a full revamp.

add new services or pages to your website

set up email newsletter & lead magnet

create private membership area

just a few of websites I have created

For these gorgeous clients, it was a true collaboration on each and every project.

We worked closely together with brand designers and copywriters whilst I built the website and made sure it was fully optimised for Google and the right people.

elegante by michelle j

Michelle is a luxury wedding planner who creates wedding magic through the UK and Europe. We have worked together on a number of different versions of her website over the years as her business grows.

What Michelle had to say “Several years ago I commissioned Maddy to undertake a review on my existing website; it has been clear to me that it was not doing its job in terms of attracting clients and it certainly did not represent me or my business accurately.

Following the initial website review, we then embarked on a full scale design of a new website which was an entirely different process to the one I had been through previously.

Maddy went into intricate detail to ensure that the website told the story of my business, she worked to create a beautiful design and to include copy that was all SEO optimized. The process was meticulous and thorough – and the end result was not only beautiful but also appropriate for me and my business.

I receive countless compliments about my website from prospective clients and industry colleagues. But of course, it’s all about the metrics, and I am pleased to say that I get more enquiries that come directly from my website than from anywhere else.

Since that time my business has evolved, necessitating an update of the website she designed for me. We have just completed and launched website 3.0 and I’m absolutely delighted with all of the hard work that Maddy put into it.

If you are looking for a website that is about more than just “the pretty” (and mine is very pretty) or for website hosting or SEO services, I highly recommend Maddy as someone who is a true professional (whilst also being fun and lovely to work with). She will work extremely hard to understand you and your business in order to ensure that ultimately you will achieve results from a hard working website.”

membership platform – visible vibes community

After years of using different subscription software and never being happy with the clunky design and functionality, I spent 8 months designing this new platform from scratch on my Maddy Shine website. This platform now hosts 300+ video trainings + resources for my Visible Vibes membership community. I’d love to build more projects like this so if you’re thinking about building a membership or course platform for your audience, please get in touch.

Helen is a colourful florist for weddings and events who splits her time between London and the west country. She wanted a simple, clean brochure-style website to show clients her portfolio of work.

Kind words from Helen:  “Thank you so so much for everything. The work, the inspiration, advice, suggestions and of course, your extreme patience and humour. Huge hugs and kisses. Take care and look after yourself.”

fiona kelly photography

Fiona is a wedding, lifestyle, family and brand photographer based in Surrey.

She and I have worked together on a number of versions of both branches of her business for years. Her latest version of her wedding photography website had beautiful branding delivered by a talented designer whilst I built the website demonstrating her vast experience. I also work with Fiona on her SEO and marketing on a retainer basis, so if you’re interested to learn more about SEO done for you services please check out this page.

Kind words from Fiona: “As soon as I met Maddy, I immediately loved her approach – full of ideas and really enthusiastic and really organised, which appealed to me as I am too! I really couldn’t imagine not having her as an extended part of the team. I am consistently fully booked and I know most of my traffic comes from Google thanks to SEO. I bloody love working with Maddy. She knows bloody loads about SEO & marketing and she’s really easy to work with. I would totally recommend her and continue to do so!”
