Each project has it’s own requirements, and each client has their own voice. We start by discussing the look, feel and intentions for the site. If needed, I help them choose between WordPress, Squarespace and Shopify. Then I begin to design the site, selecting a theme and personalising them using code, extra images and all the features of the platform.

Tech Whisperer Case Studies
If you’d rather connect with your tribe than the internet, I can help. You have full permission not to know how to use your ftp settings, or even know what that means! When the tech stuff needs wrangling, let me sort it out for you.
1. White screen of horror
We were making a small change to the formatting of a page, when it happened. The screen went white. We couldn’t log into WordPress, and visitors couldn’t see the site. Luckily, the clients had my Monthly WordPress Maintenance Package so I had a recent backup, and was able to log-in and replace the damaged file. The whole drama from adrenaline burst from sigh of relief took less than 45 minutes.
2. Jigsaw of tech
These days it seems like you need to subscribe to five different services to run your business smoothly. I’ve set up integrations for nearly all of my clients at some point. Whether it’s joining product printers to Shopify, or linking Stripe to your calendar service, it’s often just a little more complicated than advertised.
3. Moving shop
Many makers start out on Etsy, and it is the right venue for many. At some point, you may feel you’ve outgrown it or want to build your audience independent of a market place. Maybe you want to move from WordPress to Shopify. But oh my, it can be overwhelming to think of setting up all those listings again! The good news is that there is often a short cut or two, and if not, or if the transfer goes awry. I’ve helped with several of these over the past year and it’s almost certainly not as bad as you fear.
