What the business does:
I'm a website designer focused on helping small businesses and entrepreneurs. Every business needs a website that fits their brand and brings in clients. I want to bring the customer service back into web design by working together and helping you even after your website is finished.
I saw a need in the small business world, especially with artists and entrepreneurs, that need a way to promote their work/services without going to a large firm where they would get lost.
Actions taken during the shutdown:
I am giving a discount on my rate this month to help several businesses that got caught needing a website to sell online now that they have to be closed. Personally, I've been trying to write letters/cards to friends and family to help us stay connected and that's been amazing.
How has COVID-19 impacted her business?
Not being able to meet my clients in person and take photographs that might be needed, but we are working through it!
What has she learned?
My main mistake when I first opened was to not give myself 100% confidence and push through to meet potential clients. You've probably spent years training for, and put time, sweat, and tears into your business. Trust yourself and go for it!
I am doing a $1000 flat fee for my website design services for May/June. Take this time now to invest in your business, so when things are open again you'll be ahead of the game.
