You got questions? I got answers.
What is brand photography? How can I use it if I'm a photographer?
Brand photography is photos that are taken specifically for your brand. They are unique, one of a kind, and exclusively yours. Having brand photography helps your business stand out from everyone else who uses stock photos or generic ones. I offer styled desktop images, such as this one, or I can use a product and hire a model, such as this shoot, just tell me what you want!
You can definitely still use brand photos even if you're a photographer, to see an example of this, check out this project I did for Lp Photography.
Is branding the same as website design?
In short, no. Branding is creating the visuals to represent your business. Website design will USE the branding you have to create the look for the site, such as the fonts, colors, your logo, and photos.. It's helpful, I dare say, imperative to have branding when creating a website.
How can you use your brand if you don't purchase website design?
With the Brand Identity service I offer, I create marketing materials in addition to your brand, such as business cards, Facebook cover design, and Instagram branding. And you can use these materials for marketing.
Can I provide my own photos if I work with you for a website?
Yes, absolutely. Even though Brand Photography is a service I offer, you can definitely provide your own photos. However, I do require that they be high-resolution images (240 ppi or higher).
What's the difference between Squarespace and Showit?
Squarespace is template-based meaning customization is limited. Squarespace is user-friendly and provides built-in analytics, blog, and e-commerce making it ideal for business owners who want a simple platform that's easy to use, edit, and update.
Showit is a drag and drop platform meaning it can be built from scratch, from blog design, to mobile, to desktop. Showit offers blogging through Wordpress. There is a slight learning curve with Showit but if you want a completely custom site that is tailored to the user experience and high quality visuals, Showit is for you.
How do I know which web platform is best for my business?
Depends on what you want. If you want a stunning, completely custom site, go with Showit. If you're looking for a professional site that's very user-friendly and one that makes blogging a breeze, I recommend Squarespace. Wordpress is the most robust of all the platforms and the most complex in terms of design and implementation. If you're planning on having tons of content on your site, or if you're planning on expanding your business and want a platform that is as robust as your business, I recommend Wordpress.
Do you offer Wordpress web design?
Yes. I partner with a Wordpress developer to bring your vision to life on the most popular and robust web platform available. Quotes vary depending on site complexity. Get a quote.
Do you provide the website domain and hosting?
Clients are responsible for website domain, hosting, and purchasing the platform subscription. But, I will set all those things up for you and/or walk you through everything so it's not confusing.
How does payment work?
You can choose to pay in two payments of 50% at the beginning and end of the project. Or you can pay in 3 monthly payments of 33/33/34%. The first payment is a non-refundable deposit to secure your date on my calendar. I accept payment through Stripe and Apple pay.
What if I have a project that is not listed in your services?
