I Want to Build a Website You’ll Love

You’ll love it because… it will be affordable. It will work and be easy to maintain. It will help position your business for success.

Hi there! I’m Kandra, and I’ve been helping small business owners since 2000, and loving almost every moment of it.

The only part of my job that gets me down (or rather riled up) is talking with a client who had a website built for them that was a total flop.

Here are just a few characteristics of a website that flopped:

  • It was expensive.
  • It took fooooorever to complete.
  • It doesn’t convert visitors into clients or customers.
  • It’s complicated (or expensive) to maintain.
  • It doesn’t reflect the brand
  • It uses bootleg plugins, themes, and other shady code.

That’s me on the right with the pigtails (yes, grown women can wear pigtails) hanging out with my sister. She’s a Diamondbacks fan, but we won’t spend too much time talking about that (Go Rockies!).

Telling someone that the website they paid for is a flop AND that they need to start over is the WORST part of what I do. And, I don’t want it to happen to you.

So why are there so many horrible websites being sold (and DIY’d)? The only answer is the people building them. They either don’t understand the full impact a “quick” solution has on a business, or they are cutting corners to make a quick buck. Heck, maybe they just don’t know what they don’t know. Whatever their reasoning, it’s wrong. And, it’s going to hurt your business.

My official title is Brand Consultant and Designer. I’m also a WordPress gal, mother, wife, knitter, gardener, Rockies fan…. and most importantly I’m a business owner, just like you. I know what you’re going through each day. You’re putting your blood sweat and tears into your business and expect the same when you hire someone to work on your business.

You don’t have the time to learn how to build a website, pick the perfect images, and put it all together. But you know what? I do, and I would love to build your business a website you’ll love.

I have over 15 years of experience building websites for businesses just like yours. And, my clients love their websites (see for yourself).

Here’s why they love their websites:

  • The sites are easy to maintain, look great on any device, and represent the brand with professional graphics.
  • It didn’t cost a year’s worth of revenue to build and maintain, and it launched live in just a few weeks.
  • They had fun during the process, feel proud to send customers to their website, and enjoyed working with their developer (that’s me)!
  • And, the sites convert visitors into customers (aka: they make money!)

Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it?

We have worked with Kandra on many projects, and each time we learn to value their services more and more. From last-minute designs on a tight deadline to thoughtful and well-implemented campaigns she always come through.

It’s been a pleasure working with Kandra through the years and we look forward to many more.

Katie Brown
People House

Shortly after we uploaded our new web site, a long-time member of the People House Practitioner Marketing Group (and former CEO of the Women’s Chamber) handed me her membership renewal fee and informed me that the new web site and logo was her main influence to continue her involvement with People House.

Upon seeing the new site and logo she was so impressed with our new image that she enthusiastically submitted her renewal fee and is hosting two brand new workshops. Our new image has renewed the community spirit for our organization.

Melody Jamali
President, Une Belle Vie Memorial Urns

Once again, thank you for all your hard work on this project. It obviously means a lot to Mike and me, but your complete dedication was not only very impressive but pretty unbelievable. Mike and I have worked in high-end retail and legal industries for many years and we have never been fortunate enough to work with such a great team of very talented individuals. We are very lucky to have met you.

Joe Palombo
Haunted Field of Screams

Working with Kandra took the horror out of the process. She helped us streamline our website maintenance, and at the same time they were able to align our brand with our current and future growth while maintaining our existing haunted reputation. We now have a site that we can maintain and update with the same ease as scaring our clients each and every Halloween.

In my experience Kandra has an uncanny ability to nail the best design on the first try. You will not waste your time going back and forth with this talented designer.

She gets it right the first time.

In terms of cost, she always adheres to the quotations. Overall her pricing is very fair and the quality excellent.

What’s Included with Each Website I Build

We start with the basics, then customize to meet your business goals.

The Basic Package

$1,000
Everything you need to get started and grow your business with WordPress.

WordPress installation and database setup. You supply me access to your hosting account (I can help you set that up too) and I’ll take care of the rest.
A fully licensed (no bootlegging here) professional theme. I use the Astra Pro theme, and customize it for your brand with a “child” theme. (That means your site is set up the “right” way allowing you to handle software updates and more.) Astra is light-weight and fast loading, fully customizable, and highly supported.
Unlimited Page Layouts are possible with Ultimate Addons for Gutenberg which enhanses the default WordPress page editor. You won’t be stuck with a sidebar on every page of your site, but you can easily add one if needed!
Gravity Forms is a developer level plugin that allows you to create virtually any type of form on your site. This includes surveys, polls, multip-page forms... and it even integrates with payment processing and email marketing channels (like PayPal and MailChimp).
Backup and Security systems are a must for any website. I’ll include a full version of Backup Buddy and configure the standard (free) version of iThemes Security for your site.
Yoast SEO is the industry standard for ensuring that your site is SEO friendly. I’ll show you how to set the appropriate metadata for your posts and pages too!
Google Analytics helps you know what’s going on with your site’s traffic. I’ll walk you through creating a Google Analytics account (so that you own it), and then take care of all of the “geeky” parts of connecting it to your site. I use Monster Insights to make sure you’re seeing accurate data.
Page Caching ensures that your site loads quickly, preventing valuable site visitors from bouncing away from your site. I’ll install and configure WP Fastest Cache (basic) or the paid/pro version if you choose to upgrade.
A carefully selected suite of additional tools including a Simple History to log and track changes on your site will be installed, and additional plug-ins can be installed as needed. I don’t charge for installing a plugin, but configuring the new tools might require additional billable time.
One-hour of training is included for each site. Once I build it, you need to know how to use it, right? I’ll show you how everything works and make sure that you have everything you need to run your site.

Common Enhansements

From eCommerce, to Event Planning, WordPress is highly expandable

WooCommerce is an industry-leading eCommerce platform for WordPress, and fully supported by the Astra Pro theme. Out of the box styling takes care of most of the front end needs, and I’ll configure the backend settings for you. If your products, services, or anything else you’re selling, need advanced functionality, I’ll can help you with that too.
Custom Post Types is WordPress lingo for special types of content, like FAQs, Testimonials, Portfolios, and more. I’ll help you determine if you need anything special to make your site easy to manage.
Content is king, as they say. And your site can’t launch without some words on the page. We’ll work with my content writer to generate as many pages of content as you need to get your site launched.
Have an existing site with content? Fantastic! I’ll migrate the existing content into the new theme and make sure it looks amazing on the new site.
Additional training & support is always available. We can hop on a screen share and I’ll walk you through the training, or I can create training videos specific to your needs.

Need More?

I’m happy to help in any way I can.

Graphic Design is how I started my career, and we can add a logo, brochure, or social media graphics to your project if needed.
Have something totally unique that you need help with? Just let me know, I can either refer you to the right person or help you find the solution by vetting 3rd party tools and resources that might be just the ticket to get your business moving forward.
