Orion is perfect for you if:
You have a small business or side hustle that’s been doing well and are ready to take it to the next level, but you’re not quite ready to invest thousands of dollars yet.
You have an idea for a brand new business and want to test its viability in the market with minimal investment.
You work a full-time job or just don’t have the time or tech skills to design and launch a website.
You’ve tried to design a site yourself but felt overwhelmed, frustrated, anxious, or stressed and gave up (or are still doing an excellent job at procrastinating 😉).
You are fine using a template as-is and don’t require any special customization or CSS coding.
Here’s How it Works:
We meet in-person or virtually for your Initial Web Design Consultation and go over all of the details related to your site.
You provide your content.
You send me the images and text you want on your site, as well as your logo (if applicable).
We design your site.
I choose the best template for you based on the info from our consultation and work with my team to create your site.
You review + request revisions.
I send you a private link to view your site. You review, request any revisions, and we apply them.
We meet virtually, I walk you through upgrading your Squarespace account to a paid plan, and provide a mini-training.

The first step is to complete the inquiry form and provide a little more info of what you’re looking for. I will then review your responses and send you a link to schedule a free phone consultation. After we speak and confirm all of your details, I will send you an invoice through PayPal as well as a Client Agreement.
Note: For the Orion package, full payment is required up front. For Cassiopeia, 50% is required to get started, with the remaining 50% due upon project completion.
→ Aside from the cost of design, are there any other costs I should be aware of?
The two primary costs associated with having a website are your domain name and hosting. If you don’t already have a domain name, you can purchase one through Squarespace or another company. Squarespace’s pricing for domains tend to be a little more than other companies, but the convenience of doing everything with one company can be worth the few extra dollars. A standard Squarespace domain is currently $20 per year, and through other companies the average is around $10-15 per year.
Your Squarespace subscription takes care of your hosting and includes security, automatic software updates, and amazing 24/7 customer support. You can read more about Squarespace plan pricing here. Most clients I work with choose the Business plan because it includes things like MailChimp integration, promotional pop-ups, and the ability to add custom code. The Business plan is currently between $18-26 per month, depending on if you pay annually or monthly. If you’re planning to sell online, you will want to consider one of their e-Commerce plans.
Below are some other costs you might want to consider. (Some of these have free options.)
Photoshoot with a local photographer or stock images
Custom email address/G-Suite
Email Service Provider (e.g. Mailchimp)
Scheduling Software (e.g. Acuity or Calendly)
