Why work with me?
Experience you can trust and rely on as needed.
After 25 successful years in the online consulting business, running more sites than most including eCommerce, (and working with WordPress since it was born over 15 years ago and before it was the "latest thing"), I am in the enviable position of having a particular set of skills and experience that will help you succeed online.
This experience translates into guiding you with best practices during and after the site creation process. I will guide you with checklists, screenshots and instruction along the way so you know what you need to consider and prioritize.
After your website's launch, tap into advice and coaching for WordPress How-tos, plugin recommendations, marketing, email, social media, SEO and content guidance. This will ensure that you are on the right track.
Partnering with me will make sure that you will have a beautiful contemporary responsive WordPress website that will enhance your brand and grow your business.
But that's just the beginning.
You will work directly with me and benefit from the White Glove Service you need to reach your goals. I limit the number of Netrepreneurs I work with so that you can have my full attention and support. You'll get the answers and direction you need -- when you need it.
If you are seeking out a partner you can trust, who responds to your inquiries promptly with courtesy and professionalism, educates you along the way and makes sure that you understand what is required to reach your goals, I'm your gal.
What is my availability?
To make sure that I can offer the White Glove support my current clients rely on, I can only take on a limited number of new projects at any given time. I am always pleased to review your needs and project to see how I can be of service.
If you would like a new look for your current site, a brand new WordPress website or just some help with your current website, use my Complimentary Project Estimate Application. You can view all the features and services offered and select what you need. You'll then receive a detailed estimate by email.
If you just need some coaching or guidance, you can see my availability schedule for consults here.
What type of WordPress Consulting services do I offer?
Simply put the support, information and resources you need to help you succeed online. My personalized services focus on consulting and coaching new as well as established businesses by offering my 24 years of successful proven online knowledge, experience and expertise.
My unique methodology caters to astute business owners that desire one-on-one support and exclusive access to an established and seasoned professional. Together we won't just create your new WordPress site, as part of all my customized packages we'll also discuss marketing and other important issues that will determine your online success.
My WordPress Packages include
Business and Marketing Coaching
WordPress brings the benefits and interactivity of Social Media and the latest features to your program. WordPress also puts the power and ability to grow your site in your own hands to add and modify content as needed. This gives you the best chance for success in the über competitive online environment.
With this in mind, you can see why my WordPress website packages include my one-on-one support. And, in your Live Launch Session, I will coach and guide you the important topics and variables you need to keep front and center moving forward.
What I do not do is develop new WordPress themes from scratch.
That is cost prohibitive for most of my clients.
Why reinvent the wheel when you don't have to?
Live Launch Support
Once your site is ready to launch here is an example of some of the things we can cover in your Live Launch Session:
- Login Area : The first thing our walk-through will cover is the login area. We'll cover how to log in as well as how to reset your password in case you ever need to.
- Dashboard Walk-through: We'll go over the entire dashboard and explain how to use the sidebar to access the main modules you will need such as posts, pages, media, and settings.
- Adding New Posts and Pages: The next item in the walk-through will be how to add new posts and pages. I'll show you how to edit existing posts and pages, how to format text, add images or other media files, how to set categories, schedule posts, and other information you will need to successfully add content regularly.
- Working with Images and Other Media: I'll explain and show how you can access images and media in the media library and how to work with the media library in general.
- Editing Menus: Next we'll cover how add to new pages to your navigation menus, how to create new menus, and how to link to categories as well as important considerations when working with menus.
- Widgets: Where to find and how to configure.
What does a new WordPress site cost?
Redesigns start at $395; new sites start at $1,495. Having crafted sites for over two decades I know for a fact that every client request for a premium website is different and varies dramatically. That is why I offer my real-time complimentary "Craft Your Project Estimate" application.
You can use my application to choose the features and functionality you desire to get a solid idea of what your project will cost. You'll also see all the goodies, features and support that are included with each package. Once you make your choices you will receive a detailed estimate by email.
Here is the basic process:
- Create your courtesy estimate.
- Tell me about your project.
- I send you my Modus Operandi.
- You schedule a project discovery call.
Are Deposits Required?
New sites require your $500 deposit, ReDesigns and consulting $125 to get the ball rolling. Submission of your deposit reserves a spot in my production schedule and starts the brainstorming process.
Being new project opportunities are limited, your deposit ensures your placement on my current production schedule. By getting your deposit in place, your account is then in queue to receive priority status.
New "consulting only" clients are required to purchase an hour of my time in advance so I can make sure to earmark time for you in my schedule. Once you are in my system, any addition time or work commissioned will be invoiced on the 1st of the month.
I offer superior personalized support to each of my clients therefore it is critical for time-management purposes and customer service levels that I be able to identify those potential clients who have committed to their project as well as our partnership.
What if you just need WordPress consulting?
No problem, let me know what type of support you need.
If you desire one-on-one coaching, brainstorming, site improvement discussions or walk-throughs, you can hire me for the time you need to carry out your desired task or to resolve any problems you want to discuss. My live videocon sessions are perfect for screen-sharing where I can show you step-by-step how to accomplish desired tasks.
I also offer White Glove WordPress Support subscriptions which include WordPress Updating, Cloud Backups, Performance, Security, Maintenance and SEO Reporting -- and coaching.
What if you just want a little coaching?
Coaching is one of my most asked for services. Based on your stated goals, I can guide you on how to use WordPress, social media, establish your brand and set up your online business. Anything to do with running a successful online endeavor is on the table.
No matter how long you've been online, there are nuances and details you need to be aware of and apply to experience any level of ROI.
What forms of payment do I accept and how do I invoice?
- For established clients I invoice on the 1st of each month.
- Services are billed based on time spent in 10 minute blocks.
- White Glove Support Subscribers receive VIP rates.
- All major credit cards accepted.
- Terms are "Due Upon Receipt".
How long does it take for your project to launch?
From my side, your project will be ready within 30 days -- possibly sooner with your dedication and cooperation. Ongoing delays will only be due to you not providing the information I need to develop your project per your guidance.
IMPORTANT: Upon receipt of your project deposit, your project's package balance will be due once my job is completed or 30 days from the date of your deposit submission -- whichever occurs first.
How do we begin working on your Website project?
After reviewing this page in its entirety, if you haven't already Craft Your Project Estimate. This will provide you with the available features, functionality and cost.
Once you are empowered with that information, contact me with your project details.
Can I help you learn how to set up, use and modify your WordPress Website and it's features?
Absolutely! You can most certainly have WordPress help when needed. Once added to my client list you can rest assured that for WordPress help and troubleshooting I am only a call or email away when you need help.
And don't forget about backups, security, performance, WordPress, theme and plugin updates. You can have me handle all that for you by signing up for my WordPress White Glove Subscription that includes consulting and a 15-20 page Intelligence Briefing report (Guide Plan) the first week of each month.
Examples of other WordPress sites I've worked on?
I've been a successful online consultant for 25 years, collaborating exclusively on WordPress since it was born over 15 years ago. I've lost count of the number of sites I've collaborated on.
First and foremost, this very site is all WordPress. So you can get a comprehensive idea of what can be done and how I am using the WordPress platform and a Premium WordPress framework and theme for my business.
Here are a couple of my personal projects on WordPress:
I am also pleased to offer you a sampling of some of my recent favorite projects. These extraordinary site owners are why I do what I do...

Where can I get an idea of what to expect?
