Semi-Custom Website Design
Are you in need of a professional, responsive and attractive website that represents your books and your brand, but don't have the funds to invest thousands in a custom website?
Then consider a templated WordPress website from Meet Cute Creative!
Even though these are templated, you still have a TON of customization options to make this website uniquely yours. And the best part? You can get a completely designed website for under $900!
So how does this work?
You pick one template (3 total options!) and submit an intake form picking the colors, fonts and content you want for each section. Then you send us all your book covers, blurbs, author pics- everything we need to populate the info on your site!
We build your site with the content! If needed, we help migrate your site over to your hosting and set it up there.
When we finish, we set up a time to do a video screen share so we can show you how to use your new website!
After your training, you will get access to a Resource Library where you can continue to build your website with our exclusive premium website builder that has over 100 different tools to customize your website (a total value of $500 if you bought it all yourself!)
I HAVE QUESTIONS...
A templated WordPress website with the following pages:
- About the Author
- All Books page
- Contact page
- Newsletter page
- Up to 10 individual book pages
We also include:
- Links to your social media accounts (including an Instagram feed on your homepage!)
- Newsletter integration
We also install a premium page builder that we have licensed so you don't need to worry about any ongoing costs (an over $500 value in itself!)
We include a Zoom screenshare to show you how your website works AND access to a private resource library for our clients where we show you tips and tools and help you if you want to build your site to have any additional features or pages.
Not included is anything extra, like:
- Additional pages (like for upcoming events)
- Blog page
- GDPR Cookie notification
BUT we do offer those a la carte (see prices below)
We also do not include any graphic design except for the banner graphics in Template 2. We do ask that you have your author branding done prior to beginning our project. If you are need of graphic design services, we can add that to your package for just $200
You will need to have a WordPress site or are willing to switch to WordPress.
So these templates do not work with SquareSpace, Wix, Weebly, etc.
We also recommend to all our WordPress.com users to switch to a self-hosted provider. WordPress.com charges you $25(!) a month to access plug-ins, which is totally overpriced. While self-hosting, like our provider, A2 hosting costs around $6/month. More money to buy books!
Other than that, we don't have any other requirements. If you need help switching and transferring your domain, we will help you with that!
We have a ton of options if you need help with your website!
We have a private resource library that is growing every day with tools, tricks and resources.
We also welcome you to join our private Facebook group for more resources (in addition to a ton more helpful information on social media, marketing and design!)
If you don't feel super confident and don't want to touch the website, we can also help you with your website on an hourly basis at $60/hour.
We do offer hosting for $20/month or $200/year if purchased in advance.
Included with your hosting package are monthly back-ups and security checks.
WHAT IF I WANT MORE CUSTOMIZATION?
SHOW ME THE TEMPLATES!
$850 for the entire installation, customization and import of all your information and books. If you need to migrate your website to another hosting provider, we can help with that, too!
To begin working, we ask for a deposit of $450 and the remainder payment is due at launch of your website.
To get started, you need to email me and let me know which template you want! From there, I ask a few questions to make sure you have the proper hosting and support and then I send you to fill out some forms and provide me with allll the info.
And then? You sit back and we build your beautiful site!
