Your website. Let’s talk about it.
As creative entrepreneurs it’s usually a HUGE stumbling block because we have so many ideas and making it LOOK the way we want seems close to impossible.
-Do you hire someone or do it yourself?
-What platform do you use?
-Isn’t it supposed to be easier than this to figure out?
-What do I include?
-Do I need a pro photo shoot?
My first website took me about 6 months to create, hundreds of hours and google worm-holes, and pretty much took everything I had, only to publish and think it still sucked.
Fast forward to today… our newest version of the krissyleonard.com website took 30 days to create from start to finish. It converts like crazy, and I actually feel proud of sharing it with the world.
So how do you go from feeling totally overwhelmed to creating something that is DONE, you’re excited to share, AND that brings in paying clients?
PHASE 1: No website? Not a problem. Start anyway!
First off, don’t let not having a website stop you from getting out there and serving the people you are here to serve.
Truth be told, I started working with clients before I had a fancy website.
You can actually start by working with people you know, connecting with them deeply and inviting them to work with you.
It is that simple to get started and get paid.
If they need to see something in writing, you can create a simple PDF or word document outlining what you do and how you can help, and how it works.
Use this simple document to send to potential clients as you are doing practice sessions and working with your first 1-3 clients.
Then, my friend, it’s time to go pro!
PHASE 2: Create a High-Converting DIY Website With My Done-For-You Template!
First off, do you need a website?
The answer, ultimately, is yes!
Why you need a website:
- establish credibility
- create automated payments
- deliver high-quality content
- turn strangers into potential clients 24/7
Creating your own high-converting website does NOT need to be expensive, or take a long time.
When starting out and before you are making regular $5k months, I suggest creating your own website using an easy website builder like Squarespace, Wix, or WordPress.
If you decide to hire someone in your first 2 years and before you are at steady 5k months, DO NOT invest $5-$10k on a custom site!
Instead, have someone create a simple site for you that costs under $3k.
Whether you decide to DIY or hire someone, you still need to know what to include as far as content goes to make it convert…
That’s what we will look at today!
