Your blog should be a reflection of your personality,
where readers can comfortably spend an hour,
while also increasing your passive income!
From the message to the design, your website needs to cover so much in so little time. Your success all but stems from your website, but where should you begin? At Gillian Sarah, we believe that your website should offer your personality on a plate. So let’s show off that little twinkle that can make your site sparkle!
Blogging is a something that is all about you: what you say and how you say it, and your website should feel the same, just on a grander scale. We can talk about terms like “branding” and “messaging,” and sure, we’ve got to think about getting those visitors and (digital) bums on seats, but let’s not focus on those big things, and make sure that your website is, well… you, because this is what really matters.
face it, your website needs to showcase who you are. So let's give you a website design that inspires more followers and builds bridges.
The right website designer is someone who gets who you are. This is where we can help. As your personal web designer, we’re a trusted companion that has helped others understand what their website should stay true to themselves.
A personality condensed into images, thumbnails, copy, and all those components that make up a website can be a bit on the overwhelming side. Along our journey together, we work with you to ensure your website creates a seamless journey for your followers, but also helps you bring your personality and brand together in a seamless package that is you all over.
The modern blogger and influencer relies upon social media as the almighty tool to spread their word to the masses, but there are just a number of potential pitfalls most bloggers and influencers fall foul of:
Not engaging with followers directly.
Prioritising sales over website standards.
Ignoring the audience and relying on trends.
Building a marketing strategy on instinct, not performance.
Social media is a valuable tool, but it is only one piece of the promotion pie, which is where your website comes in.
No matter how we work together, you can always rely on achieving the following:
Every part of our approach is focused on designing according to your needs and goals. You have grand ambitions? Great stuff! We're here to help you realise them.
Attracting new and dedicated followers is about the image you give. If you want to stand out from the competition (and let's face it, who doesn't?), we can create a comprehensive brand design that is authentic to your needs.
A website is something every blogger and influencer should have in place. But how many times have you encountered bloggers and influencers whose websites just don't cut it? If you wince every time you share your rickety drawbridge of a WordPress website to potential clients and followers, a great website design will ensure you have the confidence to showcase who you are with that all-important online presence that makes people stop and take notice. You won’t need to poke your head above the parapet when you’re already over it!
If you are determined to venture beyond social media influencing or turn a website into something special, at Gillian Sarah, our Showit website design services offers three plans that meet your needs and/or budget. Wallets are tight, time is tight, which is why our three different plans cover different demands. We reckon you’ll find exactly what you need within our three tailored options…
Our semi-custom experience involves you selecting one of our pre-designed website templates from our collection and we replace all the copy and images with your suggestions. Great for those who have a smaller budget, or need a fast turn-around. Think of it like putting extensions in your hair: the bulk is already there, it’s just the little things that really make it sing!
The fully custom experience involves us building your website from scratch so it suits your needs and your vision. Every single detail is tweaked to guarantee it is what you need. Perfect for anyone needing to build their vision from the ground up, so let’s get the materials together and build you a site!
Don't know where to begin? Need advice, guidance, and that all-important support to help bring your vision to life? This is where we can help you get to grips with the things that work for you. We build a website from scratch and fully customise it to get you started on this new and exciting journey.
It is easy to opt for a website that is striking, pretty, and is all style over substance, but at Gillian Sarah, we do not believe that this gets you what you deserve. Bloggers and influencers can fall into the trap of providing content that is mere window dressing for the world we live in. Personality is paramount, first and foremost, so showcasing it is the thing that will bring about results.
We have a team of experts and a range of services that guarantee a functional website, but will also delve deeper to provide you with the real functional reasons a website does well. Knowledge is power, and when you start to bring about the real you in your website, you’ll be far more comfortable in the knowledge you are being authentic. Lofty ambitions are sometimes met with a two-word response: get real - well, here, your ambitions will ensure your website stays real and true to you.
Having master architects that create a functional, yet engaging website is a fine art. People leave websites for a number of reasons:
Too many ads
slow loading speeds
Personality is everything for a blogger or influencer. Ensuring that your website is an honest reflection of your personality does not just breed trust between you and your followers, but it sets the foundations for a far more authentic version of you when it comes to the art of promotion.
Your website lacks personality
Promotion is vital to getting results, but when there is a mismatch between the website and the person it is meant to promote, this doesn't ring true to the people it’s being promoted to. We appreciate the work that it takes to capture people’s attention, and authenticity through your website design is the key to a far more effective and results-driven site that should be like looking into a scrapbook of your innermost thoughts and feelings.
Creating a website that rings true to you is all about authenticity, which is why we use the Showit platform. Showit’s drag-and-drop approach gives you an easy-to-use system with complete creative control that ensures a website that suits your vision and works for you.
A website design is, for many people, a personal process. We can bring an increased number of referrals, clients, and confidence in your branding and messaging. This isn't achieved through a hands-off approach, we are there every step of the way. We have partnered with so many influencers and bloggers that have not just upgraded their websites, but our involvement has helped their sites to grow beyond their ambitions. We just love to watch people with a wing and a prayer see their ideas take shape and shoot into the stratosphere, all from a website we’ve helped birth. Whether you are a blogger or influencer, your website is the key to who you are, and it must be treated with the utmost care and attention.
It is part of my mission to ensure all of our clients have a website that meets their personal standards with that all-important handcrafted touch that you can only get from high-quality website designers that stick by you throughout the process. It’s not about one email every 17 days, we’re here like that dog that just loves you a little too much.
We will help you showcase your personality in your unique way. We have helped over 450 small businesses craft and create an online presence that ensures they have the face they are proud to show off. With our selection of services that can either give you a complete brand overhaul or customisable options to suit you, you will always get the personal touch.
With a dedicated member of our team that will see the entire process through with you from beginning to end, you can nurture a website that encapsulates who you are, but also gives you the results.
Get in contact with us and let's perfect your personality.
What Are You Waiting For?
Whether you've got a couple of ideas, a comprehensive bible of layouts, designs, and copy, or you haven’t got a clue where to begin, at Gillian Sarah, we can give you the support at every single step.
While we can help you by doing all the heavy lifting, if you wish to have a hands-on approach and build the website yourself, we have a template store. You can purchase one of our many templates and get to work on creating everything at your own pace. Your website is your baby, so we won’t tell you how to dress them (if you don’t want to)! We have a full video playlist to guide you through the entire process, so we can be as involved as much or as little as you want.
