Get Your Project Done In Just One Day With Our VIP Design Day Service

What's a VIP Day and Who Are They Right For?

A VIP Day is an 8-hour timeframe where we solely focus on your project and complete it in just one day. Different designers have different variations of versions of a VIP Day. Some call theirs "Website in a Day", or "Design Intensives", there are many different names for it!

 

Are you a relatively new business working with a limited marketing budget? Do you need a simple website but just don't have the time (or know-how) to build it? Or maybe you want to avoid the lengthy launch process that comes with a full-scope, custom website project? Maybe you need a simple logo package to start out with and not a full-scope brand identity just yet.

A VIP Day could be the ideal solution. We can also do other things on your design or marketing to-do list during a VIP Day such as branded social media templates, Flodesk set-up, lead magnet design, a website refresh, blog writing, adding advanced features or integrations into your existing site, and other daunting tasks on your to-do list! 

So how exactly does a Website In A Day Service Work?

How To Know If a VIP Day Is a Good Fit For Your Project

  • You know exactly what you need or are envisioning in a website or logo package and you just need a designer to help you execute that vision

  • You can make timely decisions when it comes to feedback and revisions without needing an extended amount of time to think about & approve things

  • You're not looking to have a huge or extensive, complex site with all the bells and whistles with lots of pages, in-depth features, & automations— you just need a professional site with all the essentials and basics to get you started

  • You might be operating on a smaller marketing budget right now, & you're not ready to spend a few thousand or more on a custom website or branding, or you need your website or brand launched like yesterday

  • What all can we fit into a VIP Day?
    Typically, in an 8-hour timespan of a VIP Day, we can accomplish either a semi-custom website, or a basic branding package, as I mentioned above. Or, if you aren't needing either one of those, and you're looking for some other graphic design or marketing help, such as what's listed below, we can typically get 1 -3 of the things listed below done in a day! Create branded social media templates to help you stay on-brand and cohesive with your social media content Create a semi-custom website starting from a professionally designed Wix or Squarespace template that we customize and tailor to your business and your branding Create a basic logo package for you that includes a primary logo, secondary logo, sub-mark logo, color palette curation, brand font pairing, and PDF brand guidelines packet We can do a website refresh or revamp (this is also great for my past website or branding clients who are looking to make some updates to their website) or redesign your website on Wix or Squarespace We can set up and integrate Flodesk email marketing and your lead magnet into your website so you can start building your email list I can batch some SEO-focused blog content for you We can add additional features or automations to your Wix or Squaresapce website such as adding an online course to your site, a video channel platform within your site, e-commerce capabilities, write optimized blog content, set up automations and more! And many other things! These are just some examples!
  • How much does a VIP Day cost?
    A VIP Day is an criminally good deal of $1,375 and the payment is split up into a 50% non-refundable deposit to hold your spot on my calendar, and the remaining 50% is due at the end of the VIP Day before sending over final deliverables or publishing any work. You can't beat this price for professional branding or website design if you're looking for a budget-friendly option! h🙌🏼
  • Why VIP Days and not a typical custom project?
    To make a long story short, I noticed a gap in the market. As a fellow small business owner, I'm sure you know that there are levels to this scaling-your-business thing! Not every business owner or entrepreneur that reaches out to work together is in a place or stage in their business where they're ready to invest thousands in full-scale custom work. A lot of newer start-up businesses, entrepreneurs building up their side hustle, and those who are in the beginning stages of scaling their brand a lot of the time don't have the budget or ability to invest thousands of dollars into a custom brand identity or advanced website right away, but that doesn't mean that they still aren't in need of professional design help! So, VIP Days are the perfect compromise. You still get to work with a professional designer on a semi-custom or smaller scale branding or website project, without breaking the bank.
  • Can I book just a half-day VIP Day?
    Yes! After we hop on our discovery call together and discuss your project and what all you're needing done and looking for, we can decide then if your project can be done in just a half-day, or if you need a full day. To book a half-day, the investment is $675!
  • Can I book a VIP Day for my project, or do I need to book a custom project?
    This answer varies from person to person, depending on the scope and scale of what you're looking for and needing, and we can talk about this more on our discovery call if you're unsure! If you're looking for something along the lines of the things I've mentioned in the sections above, then a VIP Day might be the right fit for your project needs. If you're looking for a more extensive, complex website with lots of pages, more advanced features, automations, integrations, etc, then a custom project would be what you need and I'd be happy to give you a quote for that if we find that a VIP Day might not be the best fit. If you're wanting a full-scale website, then a custom project might be better for you! If you're wanting to refresh or revamp your site, or add additional pages to your site, need a comprehensive SEO plan, branded social media templates, or scratch some of your smaller marketing or design to-do's off your list, then a VIP Day is a great option!
  • Can I book more than one VIP Day if needed?
    Absolutely! If you're interested in a semi-custom website and a basic branding package, you can book two VIP Days, and we'll take care of one on each day!
  • Can I customize my maintenance package and add add-ons?
    Absolutely! If you like a specific package, but want to add or swap some different add-ons to your quote, you can! We offer flexible add-on options so you can choose exactly what your website needs.
  • Are there any add-ons not listed here that I can request?
    If you have specific needs not covered by our listed add-ons, please reach out! We're always looking to expand our services to better support our clients.
  • Can I sign up for website maintenance with you if you didn't originally design my website?
    So, as long as your website is designed on Wix or Squarespace, I'd still be open to working with you on website maintenance, even if I didn't originally design your website, but under a few conditions... It must be designed by a professional designer, and not DIYed. The reason being, if your site is DIYed and it's been piecemealed together over the years, chances are your site might need a total overhaul before working with you on improving your online presence. If that's the case, and you do still want to work together on website maintenance, I'm all for it, but I'll likely recommend that we work together on a VIP Day together, first, in order to give your site a "face-lift" so we can then maintain that strong online presence we created together. We can go over this more, and address any questions you might have on our initial call together! 😊
  • How often can I change or add services to my maintenance plan?
    You can update your service selection at any time. We recommend reviewing your package and add-ons quarterly, if not during one of our 1:1 monthly meetings to ensure your website continues to meet your business goals.
  • Can I just do one month of maintenance to start?
    We only offer a minimum commitment of 3 months, because when maintaining your online presence, especially when SEO is involved, it can take a minimum of 3 months or so to start seeing tangible results. If after the 3-month commitment you decide you want to take on the task of maintaining your website yourself, there is no obligation to re-up and continue the commitment if it's not financially feasible for you! 😊 No hard feelings!
  • Do maintenance services and add-ons roll over if they aren't used in a month?
    Services are tailored to each billing cycle's specific needs and do not roll over. However, we can adjust your maintenance plan over time as needed to ensure you're getting the most value and that what you're getting makes sense for your budget and goals.
  • How do I choose which maintenance plan is right for me?
    The key to choosing the right website maintenance plan for you is really looking inward at your business, your goals, your budget, and what matters the most to you. If your budget is a little small right now, maybe the basic maintenance plan is all you can afford right now, and that's okay. The more important your site is to the overarching goals you have for your business, or if your site is a key tool in running your business, you should consider investing more and choosing a higher tier plan. Generally. the more you invest, the more ROI you should see from your website— that just makes sense. So that's something to keep in mind when deciding which plan is best for your business. If you need some guidance, I'm happy to discuss this more with you and help you decide (and don't worry, I won't just try to sell you on the highest tier just because! No sleazy sales tactics here!)
  • How are maintenance add-on services priced?
    Add-on services are priced on a case-by-case basis. This approach allows us to provide you with a customized solution that matches your website's unique needs and budget.
  • How can we get started with my website maintenance plan?
    Let's chat! I'd love to hop on a free, no obligation, 30-minute discovery call with you so we can talk about your maintenance needs, what you're looking for as far as maintaining your online presence, and we'll talk about which plan might work best for your goals and your budget. Fill out the form at the bottom of this page and I'll be in touch within 48 hours about scheduling a call!
  • Will adding additional service to my maintenance package extend the time needed for maintenance?
    We strive to complete all maintenance and add-on services in a timely manner. If any additional services extend the usual turnaround time, we'll communicate this clearly and work with you to find the best schedule.
