Get a Squarespace Site up FAST.
BC Squarespace DESIGNER LAURIE MCCONNELL / BIGPACIFIC CREATIVE
Whether you've never had a web site before, or have a tired html site that has disappeared out of Google because it's not mobile responsive, or you're tired of wading through Wordpress updates and security notices and find you just don't need all those plugins and extra to-dos on your list... SquareSpace makes a GREAT alternative.
My one-day SquareSpace web site package includes up to 8 hours of design/dev time and generally most clients use it for:
- Account setup
- Social integration to your Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and other networks
- Help organizing page content for each of up to 10 pages in your site for painless page creation (As a writer, I can work from shorthand/bullet notes if need be)
- Template selection and customization for a clean and modern site
- Help files unique to the management of your new site
Addons are available for Mailchimp Integration and Google Apps (email@example.com) setup.
Love the SquareSpace system and feel inspired? Let's keep on going! Further development is available at hourly package rates... and remember, if you're in the US or UK to convert from Canadian... you've got a real dollar advantage.
Starts at just $997 CAD*
*plus GST in Canada, based on 10 hours of total project time. Squarespace monthly or annual fee is paid separately on your credit card to Squarespace when project is approved and made live.

How it works
My Web Site in a Day program is a basic starter site on Squarespace, using a standard Squarespace template with customizations for your branding. (We can do a more custom project with a bigger upfront design piece - just ask for more information.)
The first thing you'll need to do is submit a project outline for what you'd like to accomplish in the 10 hours we'll be working together. In completing the application form, you'll be asked to respond to questions about your goals, and supply your content in written or note form along with images, video links, downloadable pdfs, and any stock images you have purchased with proof of rights to use in your site. I will also ask for your mailing address and other contact information.
Once I've received your project information I will generate an invoice for the 10 hour project fee. When that is received I'll book you into the calendar, at which time I'll get you to send your billing information for setting up your Squarespace account (and Google Apps if appropriate) and provide your mobile number for on-the-day communication and account verification tasks.
You should be available by telephone and text on the day we are working together. I will ask you to provide verification codes sent to your phone or email address during the setup, and I'll have you sign off on the basic look & feel about 2-3 hours in. Once you sign off, I create the site with the supplied and edited/expanded content and have you review it. When we're ready to go live I'll use the last hour or so to work on all the settings and search engine optimization, including redirecting traffic from an old domain to your new one if necessary.
Once it's live, the site is resubmitted to Google and we announce the launch into our networks and celebrate!

About Laurie McConnell
I'm a self-taught web designer and digital strategist with 17 years in the web industry. I have experience with too many web site builders to count, but Squarespace and Wordpress are the places I love best for my clients.
I help my clients keep their work online in perspective, and make it easy for them to have modern, clean, professional web sites at a price they can afford with support that goes the distance.
And when they're ready to grow, I can help them get there stress-free and feeling on top of their marketing online.
I take my clients and my work very seriously, but I also love to laugh and connect with people on an emotional level. People are beautiful to me, and there's no greater privilege than helping others achieve their goals. I hope I can work with you!
Oh, and the gull painting on the front page of this site is one of my original paintings. I also work with mixed media, found object sculpture, and am a creative writer.
