Design Happy Hour

Grab a glass of your favourite tipple, pull up a pew and let’s get happy for an hour in a 1-1 sesh.

Got website shame? Is your brand all over the place? Perhaps you’re drowning in a sea of SEO-verhelm?

Together we’ll spend an hour working out how your website could be working harder for your business, how to slick-up your branding or set you in the right direction with SEO.

Mine’s a pink grapefruit G&T by the way. What are you having?

Need some digital help?

In a 1-1 Design Happy Hour I can help you with websites that aren’t bringing in leads, outdated branding or getting started with SEO to name a few examples (booze optional!)



Your session includes pre-call research and a follow up strategy document empowering you to take the action needed to see results.

Let’s get you booked in…

Your burning questions, answered…

Find out more of the finer details about my website review sessions below. If your question isn’t covered here or you want to ask anything, big or small, please just ask!

What will we cover in the session?

It all depends on your situation. Every session is different because every business is different!

Before our online session, I’ll send you over a questionnaire to complete about your business and your business goals going forward. I’ll then do the work looking through your site, branding or SEO situation and look for what you’re already doing well and also what could be improved.

In our session, we’ll run through everything and I in your strategy doc I’ll give you all the tips tricks and advice for making improvements so that you can implement the changes.

What's included in the cost of the session?

You’ll get a questionnaire sent over to you once you book in which will not only be useful for me when reviewing, but for you to take away and keep- I hope that you’ll learn a few things about your business from it that you can take forward.

The call itself will last 60 minutes and as a follow up I’ll send you over a strategy doc with everything we covered in the session so you can take that away and start taking action on it.

Can you help me make the changes?

My help actually building the website, creating or updating your branding or improving your SEO is not included in this service. It’s for you to get a strategy to improve carry on with the building or redesigning yourself. If you are interested in my services later though, we can talk about how I might be able to help!

Who are the sessions for?

I work with all kinds of small business owners to help them improve the performance of their websites, refresh their branding and improve their SEO. The 1-1 Design Happy Hour is ideal for DIYers and those who aren’t quite sure if they want to take the next step and get a designer to do the job for them.

What if I decide I'd actually like to hire you to do it for me?

Then that’s absolutely fine too. Designing and building your own brand and website takes a lot of time, learning and practice and isn’t for everyone. If you’ve decided you just don’t have the time of the experience needed, I can certainly help. 

If you have booked in for a session and then decide to go ahead with hiring me to be your website designber, you’ll get the cost of the session deducted from the total project fee too! Find out more about the services I offer.
