It's live y'all!
I use affiliate links in my posts, of course only recommending products and services that I 100% believe in. This allows me to keep blogging and shows brands that my opinions matter.
I really want to dig into the process of creating my website and turning it into the incredible product that it is now. A lot of folks that read this blog are self-employed or have websites for hobbies, side hustles or their own personal blogs.
Mechanic Shop Femme first started on a wordpress.com blog. I worked hard to build a reader base and finally I made the leap to WIX.
Let me share a little bit about my feelings when it comes to WIX. It’s a great first place to build your site because it’s straight forward and you don’t have to be a website wiz to get a product that works. The downsides for a busy website are high though. Images don’t load well. The site is slow. SEO isn’t very great and honestly the site is so limiting.
Another huge downside to WIX is the inability to have ads running on the website.
When I put out the call for website designers Britt reached out and I was immediately hooked. I really liked her past work and style, but also that she’s all about supporting women in business and works almost exclusively with other female entrepreneurs. After talking to her, I knew she had my back and wanted me to succeed.
Communication wise, I also appreciated that she was straight forward and to the point. She answered the many (and I mean many) questions that I had with kindness and complete clarity. I decided to go with wordpress.org and really build something that would work well for me and my website viewers grew and my brand evolved.
I broke down what my idea of what I wanted the website to look like. Britt got all the details on the copy and photos from me and went to work. She started with updating my logo to something a little more clean and beautiful while keeping with the integrity of my brand.
Within a few weeks I had a functioning link to the site before it was live. Britt asked me to go through everything to be sure it looked like and functioned exactly how I wanted.
Now quality is hugely important, and the quality is here. But now let’s talk price. Britt was incredibly reasonable and happy to work with my budget. Her rate was well below what I expected to pay for the caliber of work that I received. She was incredibly responsive, usually answering emails within 12-24 hours.
Looking at my website, I am so happy and confident when sharing the link. I feel like it is definitely up to par with the standards my readers except and deserve.
Are you looking for an incredible bad-ass female website designer? Please do me a favour and reach out to Britt!
I guarantee you won’t find someone more hardworking, kind and with a great turnaround time.
