Hi, I’m Aislinn!
I build custom websites for small businesses to help you attract customers and grow your business.
I am a Big Island, Hawaii based UX Web Designer & SEO Specialist. I have been professionally designing websites since 2006, most recently working as Art Director for a well-known Fortune 500 retail company. I know what makes a good website and I know how to build them.
I own two small businesses and have built successful websites for each of these ventures. In 2012, after leaving the corporate design world, I began taking on private clients to build custom websites for them. I quickly found that I love working with small businesses that are in need of a fresh new web presence. As a small business owner myself, I understand the unique challenges that come with trying to bring a brand to life.
I consider it a privilege to get to design a website for your business that actually converts customers, helps your business prosper and, most importantly, that you yourself know how to use and manage. At the end of our time working together, you will walk away with a website you are proud to show off as well as the knowledge to be able to edit and maintain that website yourself. (But if you ever need a hand, I’m just a quick phone call or email away!).
Building Your Website in Six Easy Steps
Contact me so we can begin discussing ideas and approaches for your project. We'll talk about how a website fits into your overall business goals. We'll discuss pricing, scheduling, and other logistics, and I'll answer any questions you have. Together, we’'ll map out a strategy that supports the online goals of your business.
The design process begins. I sketch out ideas, plan and wire out the perfect website for your business. I have been designing with Squarespace for over 8 years. I know it inside and out which allows me to work quickly and efficiently.
We schedule your project slot so that you know exactly when I will be starting and finishing your website redesign. All it takes to book is a retainer and a signed contract. Once the project begins I'll need you to be available by email for feedback as needed. Other than that, your work is finished! Now my work begins.
Within 1-2 weeks I will present a concept to you that was designed taking your direction and we discuss and review it together. Your feedback is an essential part of the process. You tell me what you love and what you don't. We fine tune and tweak to get it just right.
I'll send you the link to my design questionnaire to get clarity on overall design goals and assist me in SEO keyword development for your website. I will create a Dropbox folder for you to send me the text and image content that you want featured on your new website all to be submitted before your scheduled project start date.
We launch it your new website to the world! Prior to this I will do rigorous testing on mobile, tablet and desktop devices and a variety of browsers and computer systems to ensure your new website is beautiful no matter where your customers are visiting from.
Free consultations are the perfect chance to discuss your website needs and see how we can work together. I would love to hear more about your website needs. Whether you need a completely new website, a redesign or help with SEO optimization, I’d love to chat. We'll grab coffee or hop on the phone to discuss what you need and how I can help.
