Website in a Week
A simple but effective WordPress website that will have you booking (more) clients and making (more) money in no-time!
Coaches | Consultants | 1-1 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!
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-project work and for our pre-project session (2-3 weeks is ideal)
Step 2 - Pre-Project Session
Appx. 7 days before your Website in a Week project start, we get together for 1 hour 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!
BONUS 1 - 1 hour training call
After completion of the project, I will personally train you or someone in your team 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
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.
Hi, I’m Mariela
Your New Web Designer
I create beautiful and high-converting websites for heart-centered online entrepreneurs so they can spend their time doing what they do best: serving their clients and growing their businesses.
I support you step-by-step in the process of (re)defining your ideal client, your offer, your branding and from then on we outline your website structure and your copy. When we work together, I become a trusted partner and an asset in your team, who will support you in achieving your business goals and reaching the level of income you strive for in your business and beyond.
What Clients are Saying
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!!!
I would highly recommend handing over your ideas and dreams for the most professional, safe, and workable website!
Thank you!! From my heart!

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
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 no worries, 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, I only set it up 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.
