Here are the questions that I get asked most and the corresponding answers. I get inquiries every day asking how to partner with me, what I do and how it all works. The majority of the answers are pretty simple and to the point.
These are most likely the questions you are wondering about and want to know before you contact me about your project.
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 17 years ago 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, screen-shares, and instruction along the way so that you know what you need to consider and prioritize.
Tap into my experience for advice and coaching for WordPress How-tos, plugin recommendations, marketing, email, content, and SEO guidance. This level of support will allow you to remain on the right track.
Partnering with me will ensure 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.

What WordPress Consulting services do I offer?
The support, information, and resources you need to help you succeed online. My personalized services focus on consulting and coaching new and established businesses by offering my 25 years of successful proven online knowledge, experience, and expertise.
What I do not do is develop new WordPress websites from scratch.
After developing new websites for decades, it is a process I no longer enjoy. I do have a passion for assisting extraordinary netrepreneurs embrace best practices — along with a healthy portion of coaching.
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 work on your WordPress website. As part of all my customized services, we'll also discuss marketing and other important issues that determine your online success.
My WordPress Services 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 all my WordPress services also include my one-on-one support. I will coach and guide you on the important topics and variables you need to keep front and center moving forward with my live sessions.
What is Live Support all about?
When you need help, I'll send you an invite to my private and secure Zoom conference room so that we can collaborate on the tasks at hand.
Here is an example of some of the things we can cover during our live sessions together:
- Brainstorming: This is the primary use of my live sessions. Questions get answered, strategies discussed, best practices covered—a healthy back and forth covering any issue important to your WordPress website's success.
- 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.
- Appearance Customization Panel: This area allows you to tweak your theme's display and add custom CSS snippets if desired. We'll cover each section and what the impact is on your theme.
- How Gutenberg Blocks Work: We'll go through blocks and their features so that you are aware of all the flexibility and layout options available to you.
- Adding New Posts and Pages: I'll show you how to edit existing posts and pages. This includes formatting text, adding images, or other media files using the Gutenberg editor. We can cover how to set categories (aff), schedule posts, and other information you will need to add content successfully.
- Working with Images and Other Media: I'll explain and show how you can access images and media in the media library and work with the media library in general. Including issues important to site performance.

- Plugins: Did you add a new plugin that needs configuration? We can cover that step-by-step.
What does a new WordPress site cost?
As part of my new focus to offer the best WordPress support possible to those with established WordPress websites, I no longer entertain new website projects. The exception being for established clientele.
When it comes to getting a new WordPress look, prices vary as each website is literally a unique ecosystem in itself. Once we chat and get login credentials, I can poke around your current WordPress site and get an idea of what will be involved.
Here is the basic process:
- Tell me about your project.
- I send you my Modus Operandi.
- I'll send you a link to schedule a project discovery call.
Are Deposits Required?
A $500 deposit is required in advance for all ReDesigns. Submission of your deposit reserves a spot in my schedule and starts the onboarding process.
New “consulting only” clients can purchase the time desired through my scheduling app (I'll send you a link when you are ready to proceed), where I will earmark time for you in my schedule for our first consult. Once you are in my system, any additional time or work that is commissioned will be invoiced on the 1st of the following month.
I offer superior personalized support to each of my clients; therefore, it is critical for time-management purposes and customer service levels to identify those potential clients who have committed to their project and 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 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, including WordPress Updating, Uptime Monitoring, 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 using WordPress, establishing your brand, and setting 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 (aff) of payment do I accept and how do I invoice?
- For established clients, I invoice on the 1st of each month.

- White Glove Support Subscribers receive VIP rates.
- All major credit cards are accepted.
- Terms are “Due Upon Receipt.”
How long does it take for your redesign to launch?
From my side, your project will be ready within 7-10 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.
You will be invoiced on the first of each month for any work completed in the previous month.
