The Essential Website: Benefits, Details, and More!

The Essential Website is the perfect, affordable solution for smaller business budgets. Custom designed, professional, secure and beautiful layouts perfect to help you grow your online presence. Find out how you can shine online with The Essential Website!

TA DA! It’s here!

Hello! We are very happy to introduce our baby, The Essential Website!

The Essential Website was created by us – Janet formerly of Blue Tail Designs and Stefani formerly of The Creative Solutions Project.

Why we’re doing this.

Over and over we’ve found many small businesses (or new businesses) need a strong, professional website, but they don’t have the budget for a 100% custom-designed and built-from-scratch site. That’s what we build – sites that are custom coded, with all the necessary bells and whistles (which is what smart and safe websites need to work properly), that are built especially for you and your business. Totally unique websites that no one else has.

We’re helper, problem-fixer and solution-finder kinda girls, and we hated not being able to help these nice people! We had to fix that. Joining forces, we constructed a service that solves this problem. The Essential Website.

How The Essential Website can help you.

Every website we build is custom designed and includes all the “Essentials”.

  • We use the same premium theme (BeaverBuilder).
  • We configure premium backup and security software.
  • We install all of the necessary, premium plugins that you can only use with a developer’s license.
  • We prepare and configure your site to work smoothly and properly on mobile devices.
  • We optimize your site for SEO.
  • We add and integrate your MailChimp email opt-in so subscribers can easily sign up for your newsletter.
  • We use your brand colors and selected fonts.
  • Plus lots of other things!
  • And when we’re done…we give you all of the information you need to easily take care of, use and maintain your new site.

BONUS: With The Essential Website, you’ll also get access to our private Member’s Only Area area filled with resources and tutorials to help you before, during and after your website is built.

Who is this for.

The Essential Website is perfect for:

  • Businesses who are looking for a clean, professional, built-right web presence.
  • Those who want to make an investment that feels right.
  • Those who recognize that your clients want (and need) a place to connect with and learn more about you and your business.
  • Those who have tried to DIY or even the big name “website for free” folks and found that it wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
  • Those who appreciate the value of a website and are ready to grow and shine online!
We can’t wait to help you!

We are excited to help you grow and shine with the prefect website! You can learn more about The Essential Website on our Work With Us or FAQ pages!
