TESTIMONIALS

I no longer have to have the internal debate over whether it's worth paying someone to redo my website. This website was worth every penny!

Also, I loved the collaborative nature of your process, the way you checked in at several points along the way, and creatively incorporated my feedback.

Ronit Wagman


I finally feel confident in my website.

I would definitely say, it's absolutely worth it. You will be amazed at how efficiently Mariana works. It's a miracle that she designed my whole website and rebrand in two weeks. I couldn't have imagined this would ever be possible.

Anisa Asakawa

FAQ

 

Here’s what others have asked!


I don’t see what I need ⟶

I get it. You can be at a place in your business where getting the whole package is not part of your plan. Do you just want branding? Or copy for your website? Let’s jump on a call and design your dream package!

What if I’ve never worked with a designer before? ⟶

No worries, friend! I’ll provide all the information you need to know, and make the process as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. During our discovery call, I’ll answer all your questions and make sure you feel 100% comfortable with the scope of the project. We’ll keep those channels of communication open so that you always know what’s going on and when!

Yikes! That's a big investment! ⟶

I totally understand! Making an investment in your business is always a game of figuring out what your time and energy is worth!

The DIY Route: $2,075 and a time investment of at least 100 hours! Learning how to design a brand and website, and writing copy that converts, is a very time-consuming endeavor that will take you away from the things you’d rather be doing.

  • Squarespace Design Course: $800 (time investment: 1 month of 3 hours per week to learn, 20+ hours to implement)
  • Copywriting Course: $800 (time investment: 8 weeks of 4 hours per week to learn/implement)
  • Branding Course: $475 (time investment: 14+ hours, plus 20+ hours to design)
  • Adobe Illustrator: $29.99 / month (time investment: who knows! it can take years to learn how to use Illustrator to generate the professional graphics you need)

The piecing out to different experts route: $13,500 and 11+ weeks! The investment of hiring different people to work on each aspect of your website is paid in both dollars and time. This will be challenging for people with tight deadlines or those for which project management is not their strongest skill.

  • High-End Brand Design: $5000 (time investment: 5+ weeks)
  • Web Design: $2000+ (time investment: 7+ weeks)
  • Website Copywriting: $1,000/hour (time investment: varies)

If you’d like to work with me, at a lower price point, please check out my Live Hourly and Copywriting Help page. This is my offering with the DIY-er not quite ready to invest in a full, professional brand, web design, or copywriting package in mind.

I also offer payment plans... Put half down, and the rest can be spread out into monthly payments you can manage.

Do you offer payment plans? ⟶

Yes babe! I do offer payment plans. Half down, and spread out the rest.

But how long does this actually take? ⟶

Here's the scoop. As soon as I get the deposit, you'll gain access to your workbooks and our design timeline. The workbooks are your homework, and the timeline's your guide. Workbooks are due one week before the 1- or 2-week design period begins. It'll take you about 2-3 hours to fill them out.

Depending on your package, it really will take a 1- or 2- week design period for your website to be ready! How's that!

When's the best time to book my design period? ⟶

Basically, any time you'll be able to have easy access to email and can get back to me within a few hours if needed. You'll also need time to give me feedback. So don't book your design period when you're going on vacation, have family visiting, or have a deadline at work!

What if I need to change my design period after booking? ⟶

Aw man! That's a toughie! While I totally understand that life happens, I do need to make sure to respect the time of other clients who’ve booked after you and make sure they stay on schedule. Your first (non-refundable) payment reserves a certain block of time on my schedule, and if you need to change it more than 24 hours after you booked, you’ll need to pay a rebooking fee equal to that amount.

I have more questions, how can I get in touch? ⟶

Feel free to contact me here or book your free discovery call with me.
