You want a website. And you want to have fun.

Let’s do both.

You know the value of a beautiful website. You know it influences what people think of you. You know it can make or break your business. And you also know it can get expensive and tedious. So you’ve been putting it off.

You’ve been trying to do it yourself but it never quite looks the way you want it to look or works the way you want it to work.You’re pretty tech savvy. You have good taste in design–and you always figure out how make it work. So you can’t justify paying someone else to completely build a website for you.

But you do need some help.

And if you’re going to hire someone to help you, it better be efficient, effective, and fun. Right?

Right!

That’s why we’re inviting you to this party.

Details:

You’re going to spend two and a half days of hands-on attention with Launch Party creators, Shelley Easter and Laura Diaz, and you’re going to leave with a fully-functional, customized website.

We’ll take your headshot

We’re even having a makeup artist for touchups

We’ll give you writing prompts

We’ll create the website template

Because you definitely don’t want to do that part

You’ll design your website

You’ll write your web copy

With the help of brand strategists

You’ll launch it(!!!)

We’ll cheer with you!

Then, we party — literally, there will be champagne.

  • (3) 75 minute, group calls to prepare you for the launch party weekend

  • Teach you, step by step and in real time, to customize the website template with your logo, colors, fonts, and photos

  • Produce a beautiful project in a short amount of time without any stress
  • Smile for the camera
  • Drink fancy drinks in fancy glasses

And just like that, your website is ready to launch.

We know how hard it is to pay someone to do something you can do yourself. We have that problem too, after all we do it all– we write, we photograph, we design, and we develop. But doing it yourself takes longer, is more frustrating, unbelievably overwhelming, and–honestly–rarely looks as good as you deserve to look.

Creating a digital home can be a scary and confusing experience. Shelley brought my vision to life — and it’s so much better than what I had imagined.

It's a very easy give and take between us. I tell her what I am trying to convey and Laura can get inside my head and quickly help me articulate what I want to say in a powerful and authentic way. I really feel like she lives part-time in my brain.

I LOVE my new website. Whenever I’m feeling unsure about my business for any reason — I open my website and scroll through. It makes me feel happy and connected to my business.

FAQS

Do I need to be tech savvy?

It’s helpful, but absolutely not necessary. We will walk you through every step.

Do I need a laptop?

Yes.

What tech tools do I need?

We’ll be showing you how to design elements of your site with Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud. You can grab a free 30 day trial before the weekend. Depending on the complexity of your graphics, you could use Canva instead (which is free).

What platform will the website be on?

Your new website will be built in WordPress. It’s by far our favorite platform because it’s open-sourced, free, and endlessly customizable. It’ll grow with you.

Will I definitely be done with my website at the end of the weekend?

The short answer is yes. The longer answer is: we are going to ask you to do quite a bit of work leading up to the launch party weekend so you’re in the best position possible to tie up every loose end before the clock strikes 5 on Sunday afternoon. If you do all the work, you will finish your website by the end of the weekend.

Where are we doing all of this?

The party will be at a beautiful, private residence–with lots of natural light for photos–so we have lots of space to sprawl out and we aren’t confined to the timeline of a hotel conference room or rented office space.

Do I need to be there in person?

Yes.

Are there any additional fees?

If you don’t already have a domain name and hosting, you will need to purchase those in advance. (Don’t worry we’ll walk you through it.) The average cost of this is about $100 annually. There are some add-on options, like strategy sessions and full photo shoots available for purchase once you’ve registered for the launch party.
