  • WANT TO ROCK OUT YOUR OWN
    WEB DESIGN BUSINESS?

    BECAUSE THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT:

    You can already design + develop a website.
    You already have the skills to do this.
    But how do you sell and deliver a website
    in a way that’s efficient and effective?

    SYSTEMS + PROCESSES

    If you’re anything like I once was, you’re...

    • struggling with packaging your offering
    • finding it difficult to convince dream customers that you’re a perfect fit
    • having a hard time getting everything you need from your clients
    • feeling scrambled when it comes to actually delivering the website

    Or maybe...

    • you’re struggling with filling your client calendar
    • money is coming at you in a feast-and-famine whirlwind
    • you know you need to be convincing clients to stick around after launch, you just don't know how

    LAUNCHING WEBSITES FOR CLIENTS IS HARD WORK
    BUT - IF DONE CORRECTLY - IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT HARD

    WITH PROCESSES + STRUCTURE
    YOU CAN ROCK YOUR WEB DESIGN BIZ

    How about a WEB DESIGN BUSINESS IN A BOX:

    • project management systems and processes, already outlined and ready to use
    • to-dos and checklists so you (and your client) know what’s next (so there’s no second-guessing where you’re at in a project ever again)
    • email templates for every stage of the project - from kickoff to closing the deal to sending that final invoice
    • a structure that helps you nurture your clients, so you can get more of them!

    Because here is what you need:

    • an offering that's easy to sell
    • a process that's easy to deliver
    • websites that launch on time, and clients that are easy to manage
    • have a solid structure that makes it easy for you to deliver results every time
    • security and profitability, so you love your job and get paid well to do it

    ROCK YOUR WEB DESIGN BUSINESS

    is an 10-week masterclass to help you, well... rock your web design business. You get 6 modules of 16 lessons, 6 live virtual workshops and a library of materials to teach you how to position yourself as an expert, ask for what you’re worth, and launch client websites like a boss.

    It’s processes, checklists, email templates, and more - everything you need to book and nurture clients, from the moment they see your website, until you’re handing them the keys to their own online castle (read: website).

    Think of it as a business-in-a-box, with guidance to help you implement. The box is your laptop, I am your guide, and you get everything you need to rock out your web design business.

    “Emily is a total boss at hammering out the processes of a web design business. She helped me package my offering and helped me get out of my daily struggle of putting out fires and into the seat of being the expert to my clients. She put me to work to grow my web design business on a path to reaching my big goals."

    - BOBBIE JO ADKINS, WEB DESIGNER

    Web Designer Testimonial

    MEET EMILY:

    For the past six years I have worked with creative entrepreneurs to help them launch not only websites, but online businesses. Through my web design business, Indie Shopography, I have used this work to grow my expertise to become an online business coach and strategist, helping hundreds of creatives launch online businesses making money doing what they love.

    I also shares my expertise on the Being Boss podcast, in partnership with Kathleen Shannon, where we team up to discuss life and work as creative online entrepreneurs, tackling topics like money, feeling like a fraud, and what it takes to be boss.

    When not designing sales pages, podcasting, and answering emails, I like to cook, play cards, and do some hearty front porch sitting on my porch in Chattanooga, TN.

    PRAISE FROM OUR
    WEB DESIGN CLIENTS:

    “Working with team Indie has probably been one for the best things I’ve ever done for my little biz. Ya’ll really got to know me, take the time to learn and understand my business and always followed up on questions, maintenance and concerns I had throughout the process. It never felt like pulling teeth or grasping at ideas - you took what I said and delivered a perfect product and support all the way through. I felt like you were my #1 fan…and that’s really uplifting to know that the folks you’re working with actually want you to succeed."

    - LINDSAY KLUGE, CLINICAL HERBALIST

    QUESTIONS, ANSWERED

    Is this the same process you’ve used to sell and launch IndieBOOM projects?

    Yes, it sure is.

    In case you don’t know, two years ago I did away with my traditional web design service model and created a service that allowed me to service my client in a way that was meaningful to me. These projects were a combination of coaching, branding, and web design.

    IndieBOOM came in two options: 6 months for $12,000 and 12 months for $24,000. I made just shy of $250k on those IndieBOOM projects over 2 years.*

    Rock Your Web Design Business is a packaged up program showing you exactly how we do it, from selling (including sales email templates, how we screen clients, and more) to how we launch a website (including the steps we clear to take a site live, how we release a site to a client, and how we continue relationships with retainers).

    My favorite thing about the IndieBOOM projects? Every project launched. Every website went live. Every client stayed and hustled through to the very end.

    (Except for one. We had to fire one 12-month client 5 months in due to some big issues, but even that shortened engagement ended with a live website that the client loved. For those who dive into the course, I’ll share exactly what happened so that you can be wiser for it.)

    Rock Your Web Design Business is everything we do, from start to finish, delivered in six modules of lessons and a boat-load of valuable docs, checklists, templates, and more.

    *I’m not promising any outcomes here, just showing you what I’ve accomplished. Your outcomes are up to you.

     

    What if I only design or only develop?

    Rock Your Web Design Business is the whole kit-and-kaboodle for packaging, selling, and delivering website projects. If you only do part, then this system will help you delegate what's left.

    If you only develop, our system will show you where a designer comes in. If you’re a designer, it will show you when and where you need a developer.

    Because we’re a small team, this system is delegation-friendly. It will make you a better project manager so that your relationships with contractors will be happier, just like your client relationships.

    What tools do I need?

    A computer with access to the internet, which I think you’re probably good with, and a couple of pieces of software.

    This course (and our process) will show you how to deliver a website project using the following software:

    • Quicktime (you already have it if you have a Mac)
    • InDesign
    • Illustrator

    Yea, that’s about it. Other than that you’ll need email, your brain, and some tenacity to rock this out.

    NOTE: These are what we use to deliver things to you, or show you how to deliver to your clients. You can use whatever design and development tools you want to get the job done outside of these few little pieces we'll be sharing with you.

     

    What if I don’t know how to design or develop a website?

    This course will not teach you to design or develop. Not one bit. So, if you’re looking for help there, this won’t help you. This is what comes after you have the skills to deliver.

     

    How will this course be delivered?

    We want to keep this super easy for you. Every lesson will be delivered via email with access to the video, audio, and downloadable documents, right to your inbox. Your intro email will have all the information you need for delivery dates, workshop schedule, and more.

     

    What is your return policy?

    We will only offer a refund if you show us that you’ve done the work. We don’t entertain buyer’s remorse or folks who don’t invest the time. You show us you gave it a fair shot and tell us how you don’t think you’ve gotten your money’s worth, and we’ll give you a full refund. But questions will be asked; it’s our prerogative.

    If you’re not sure you can commit to rocking your web design business with us, then this is not for you.
