Coaches | Consultants | Service Providers

  • Do you serve clients 1-1 and want a website that makes you look as amazing and professional as you really are?
  • Do you need someone to guide you through this whole (sometimes scary) process of building your digital home?
  • Would you rather spend your precious time working in your zone of genius – serving your clients and creating the level of income you aim for in your business – instead of trying to figure out ALL-THE-TECH?

Then Website in a Week is for you!

Your website VIP experience

Let me guide you through the whole process – from defining your ideal client, your offer, and what sets you apart, to creating a cohesive branding concept (colors, fonts, logos, images), your website navigation and structure, your copy, and finally your SEO, legal pages, and much more.

It’s like having a business coach that delivers you a website at the end!

Trust The Process

How does it Work?

Step 1 - Choose your week

Book your kick-off day (a Monday) for your website in a week project. This will be our starting point.

I will provide you with my step-by-step Website Preparation Workbook, so please allow enough time for you to complete this pre-work and for our Pre-Project Strategy Session (2-3 weeks is ideal)

l

Step 2 - Pre-Project Strategy Session

Appx. 7 days before your Website in a Week project start, we get together for 90 minutes on Zoom to go over your workbook and answer any questions you have.

(You will find your link to your Pre-Project Session in the welcome e-mail after you book, AND you will get a reminder, so no worries ;))

}

Step 3 - Your Dedicated Week

On your dedicated week, I’ll get to work on your website all week. I will send screenshots and links via Facebook Messenger (or any other messaging app of your choice), and you will provide me with your timely feedback so we can complete your website by Friday – Yay!

And then your project is DONE!

Taa-Daa!!

BONUS 1 - 90-minute training call

After completion of the project, I will personally train you (and if you like also someone in your team like your VA) via Zoom on how to use your website, so you feel empowered and confident to make changes and don’t need to pay every time you want to make minor changes to your website. You will also get a recording of this training session for future reference.

 

BONUS 2 - Access to step-by-step video tutorials

In addition to our Zoom call, you get unlimited access to my exclusive Client Tutorials portal where you will find step-by-step videos on how to use your website, so you can go back and watch in case you still have any questions. 

 

BONUS 3 - 30 days Post-Project Support

After your website is completed, you get 30 days post-project support  via e-mail or Facebook messenger and I’ll quickly answer your questions via video (Loom) or via message.

 

BONUS 4 - 3 months of maintenance & backups

I’ll take care of maintening your website and doing backups for the first 3 months. This will give you enough time to familiarize yourself with your website. After that, you can either learn to do the required updates yourself through my training videos, or you can book my maintenance plan at $39/month

What Clients are Saying

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Before working with Mariela, I felt overwhelmed with all the tech and copy I had to create for my new website. I didn’t want to waste my time on Youtube trying to figure it out. I am so grateful to have found and worked with Mariela to set up my website. She provided clear guidelines and information to help me gather my content. Her template was super helpful in getting me organized and prepare for the launch. She was attentive to details and my feedback.

Communicating with her was easy. We also had great conversations throughout the week and it made me feel good to know that someone on the other side cares for me too.

And I’m so happy with my new digital home. I feel confident that I can point my audience to a professional & clean website that reflects me.

I highly recommend working with Mariela for setting up or redesigning your website.

Kris Daria

Email Marketing Consultant

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I highly recommend Mariela if you need a website. I had a slight vision, no design experience, and not much tech knowledge. Mariela had resources to organize my thoughts and pull out of me what my brand and business is about. She used her knowledge and experience to teach me what works best and why. She is responsive and cares about the quality of my site as much as I do.

When my first attempt at copy was not the best effort, she gave me additional resources to help me pare down and simplify my message. In addition, she provides access to tutorials that she’s always looking to improve and helpful instructional videos when I have a question. I am so pleased and have received numerous feedback on how beautiful, simple, and easy to understand my site is. THANK YOU!!!

Amy Stout

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Mariela has been out of this world. She prepares you well to get your ideas down and preferences so she fully understands your vision and understands YOU. This way the final product is above par. She blew my website out of the ballpark. I could not be happier. She guides and steers you in the right direction, one you never knew existed!

I would highly recommend handing over your ideas and dreams for the most professional, safe, and workable website!

Thank you!! From my heart!

Dinuka Ranasinghe

Conscious Parenting Coach

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I would be happy to recommend you as a website designer. I didn't really like my website before and I think it is visually pleasing now. I like the prework that you had me do- it made me think about what I wanted the website to communicate and how I wanted it to be communicated. It made me think about color and font and introduced me to great new tools. The website flows much better and is quicker and more responsive.

Thank you!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Mariela helped me create a beautiful brand new website. I had struggled for 2 years and working with her, we talked through my branding and my color choices. She has made me a beautiful website that I enjoy looking at. I can’t say how much I appreciate the time and effort she put into it.

WordPress and Divi: A Powerful combination!

I use WordPress and the Divi theme because they provide a solid foundation to build an online business.

The NEW Divi (4.0 and beyond) is easier than ever to learn, provides a clean and modern look, and is compatible with many of the systems you need for your business (memberships, online courses, podcast, online shops, and much more)

You will have a website that you can build upon!

 

BONUS: When I create a website for you (1-full Day project), you will get a FREE Divi license key – no renewals needed – free forever!  => Value: $80/year or $250/one time fee

FAQ’s

What do you mean by “high converting website”?

What I mean by that is a website that is designed for the visitor to stay on the website and take the action you want them to take. For instance, if you want them to sign-up for a freebie, or to book your services, those are conversions. I follow the Storybrand Method to ensure that the website has a good flow and also good design practices for the website to be aesthetically pleasing and clean, which are also important factors for conversion.

What do I need to provide so you can start my website?

Mostly, 2 things: Copy (your text) and images. Additionally, if you have already a branding concept done for your business, I will need those branding assets also (logo, color palette, other graphic items, etc.) If you don’t have a branding concept already, I will create a very simple branding concept with you (a color palette, a typeface logo, fonts, etc.) I will also advice you in case you want further graphic items from external sources like Creative Market, etc.  

But don’t worry, immediately after you buy you will get my step-by-step Website Preparation Workbook that will guide you to come up with your own branding (which I will take and refine), your website structure, and your copy. So you will know what you need to gather before our project starts.

What additional costs will I have for my website?

Besides the Website in a Week Package fee, you will need:

A domain = around $10/year with namecheap.com
Hosting = around $80/year with Siteground

If you need any premium plugins, we will talk about it, but I mainly work with free plugins (which are like apps for your website)

The beauty of it is that you get a Divi license from me (FREE forever. Value=$80/year or $250/lifetime license fee)

Do you transfer my website to me when we are done?

(Yes, believe it or not, I’ve heard clients tell me horror stories about designers running away with their websites and years of content)

Your website will be on your own hosting account, and you will be an administrator on your WordPress dashboard. So yes, your website belongs 100% to you, my only job is to create it for you.

Do you take care of my SEO?

 SEO depends on many factors. For instance: the technical part and the content part. I will for sure take care of the technical part for you – using the right HTML structure (H1/H2/H3 etc.), naming the images for SEO purposes, reducing their size and using the Yoast SEO plugin for descriptions and featured image, etc. Also very important is the choice of hosting. I use and recommend Siteground, and if you sign up with me, you can get a discount through my affiliate link. This ensures that you get a very fast, reliable and secure website, which are the 3 things Google loves the most.

For the content part, that will depend on the quality of content you create for your audience. For this, I recommend adding a blog to your website. I cannot guarantee that you will get on the first page of Google immediately BUT I can make sure that your page is created SEO-ready out of the gate, so you will gain traction with Google as you expand your content.

Will the Website in a Week package include a blog?

 My websites come with a blog page and a blog post template (through the Divi theme builder) that will turn your blog posts into a beautiful page. You only need to upload the text and a featured image, and all posts will have the same format. Of course you will find detailed instructions on how to use it on my client-tutorial portal. 

That means, I will manually design 3-4 pages for you (depending on what we agree on), and you will be able to create your blog posts and display them on the menu once you are ready to. 

In case your blog is a central part of your website, of course we can talk about how to make this package work for you. 

What if I’m in a different time zone than you?

No problem, I have experience working through different time zones. I am in Germany, which is CET (Central European Time). For instance, if you are in a US timezone like PST, we would set up any meetings in the morning of your time/evening my time. Otherwise, I will work independently and send you links and screenshots via Facebook Messenger that you will approve in a timely manner, so that we can complete your website on time.

Interesting fact: As you can see on my portfolio, 90% of my clients are US based, many of them on the West Coast. So yes, we can make this work for your time zone. 

Will you set up the systems I need for my website like Acuity, Calendly, Mailchimp, or ConvertKit?

No, this is not in the scope of website design. I can guide you through links to tutorials and how-to’s, give you pointers and do all I can to make it easier for you, but I will not personally set up those accounts for you. But, I WILL connect those tools to your website so you can do things like build your e-mail list and book new clients.

Truth time!

Yes, you could try to DIY your website. But…

Save yourself the time, effort and money

One of my clients had a website she absolutely disliked. She spent 2 years (!) trying to learn how to DIY her website, and totally resented herself for “wasting” this time. She had to do a releasing ritual in order for her to be able to move forward and ditch her old website and limiting beliefs. I assured her that that time was not wasted – she spent it learning WordPress and had already a big advantage for that. But I do agree that she could have spent that time serving her clients instead,

Choose your designer wisely

Work with a designer that actually listens to you!

When I had a free consultation with a client, she told me right away: “Just that you know, I HATE pink and peach colors!” I laughed and said “Don’t worry, we don’t need to use those colors. You will be the one doing the discovery (with my help) around which colors resonate most with you and your business” We came up with a beautiful color palette around dark and light blues, and the website turned out feminine and professional without pink or peach colors 😊

And choose someone who is ethical and treats you with respect

I had a consultation with a woman who had been working with a designer for 6 months, and still had nothing to show for. Not only that the designer didn’t listen to her when she wanted something changed, but she had also threatened to just terminate the contract and keep the deposit if she continued “bugging” her.

And while doing market research, someone told me her last designer just walked away with her website, including years of blog content, when the contract ended. She just took the website offline and this lady had to start over from zero.

Needless to say that I would NEVER treat a client like that. I really looove all my clients and want the best for them.

So be careful who you work with (better if you work with me, of course 😉)
