Loosely translated from Italian to mean "creative life"
Hello, I'm Arielle
I'm happiest when I'm "creating," and I admire people who see the world differently, challenge the status quo, and take risks. That's why I enjoy working with small business owners who are driven by their entrepreneurial spirit. Learning about your business, understanding your challenges and finding ways to help bring your vision to life is what I do best. I want to make your job easier so you can focus on doing what you love. Let me worry about the other stuff.
That's how I live a creative life.
Just in case you were wondering ... My logo is based on the Sacral Chakra. Chakras are thought to provide subtle energy that aids in the optimal functioning of your organs, mind, and intellect. The Sacral Chakra is known as the center of creativity. It is said to determine a person's dreams, desires, imagination and creative potential.
Tell me your story
Initially, I'm not interested in talking about how many pages you want on your site. Don't be alarmed. We'll come back to those details later. I am curious what your vision is for your business and brand. What are your goals for this project? I want to know what works and what doesn't when it comes to marketing. What challenges are you facing? What's keeping you up at night? Are you burdened with doing a lot of administrative work? What are your competitors up to?
We'll meet for a Discovery Session(s) to discuss and document your requirements. After I have a clear picture of your business and a solid grasp on your objectives, My team and I will be able to begin planning strategies and developing solutions for you.
Tools of the trade
Since the debut of the personal computer, there have been heated discussions concerning software. I've been around long enough to recall the early "debate" between Apple and Microsoft.
Wix is my go-to website builder at the moment. I also use Canva, Google, and a variety of video editing programs. The major reason I chose these apps is that I construct my websites so that my clients can maintain them themselves if they so desire. Furthermore, these apps are cost-effective for small business owners. Please contact me to see my portfolio of work.
Let's get to the bottom line.
What will it cost?
Because we do not offer bundles, templates, or pricing plans for our services, this is usually a challenging question to answer. Every project is different. The project's cost is determined by a variety of factors. In order to determine the scope of your project, we conduct in-depth interviews. Following that, we present you with a cost estimate for the project.
As a fellow entrepreneur, I recognize that cost is a major factor in deciding whether or not to proceed. I go to great lengths to keep my costs as low as possible. To make it more affordable, I'm happy to offer payment plans.
It's important to note that there are additional Wix charges for web hosting, domain names, and advanced functions like email marketing and e-commerce that are outside of my control. Before we start designing your site, I'll provide you a detailed breakdown of the Wix costs. Occasionally, there also may be fees for typography or stock images.
The cost of a Wix website design varies depending on the scope of the project and the experience of the designer. A simple website may cost between $500 and $2,500, but a complicated website with multiple pages and specific functions could cost between $2,500 and $6,000. Some websites with advanced functionality and programming can cost up to $10,000.
These costs do not cover essential services such as building a brand identity, content creation, digital marketing, search engine optimization and social media management that are required to build a successful online presence. Those costs are usually billed hourly and can range from $40 to $80 per hour.
