Website Design Waterloo

WordPress website design in Waterloo or website re-design.

WordPress and Squarespace websites that are SEO optimized and attract your ideal customers.

Whether you’re looking for a brand new professional website or a website re-design, I can deliver with an attractive SEO optimized site that showcases your brand and converts visitors into clients and income for your business.

I use WordPress and Squarespace as my website design platforms.  

My Background in Website Design

Several years ago before I learned how to build websites myself, I had a resume writing business and hired a website designer to build my site for me. The website was beautiful but, it was built using Dreamweaver which at the time, seemed like a very complicated program.


When I was ready to make changes to my content or rates on my site, I watched hours of tutorials on using the program for tweaking my website but it was just all too complicated for me to make the changes. So I reached out to my webmaster and she charged me $100 to make the changes that probably only took her 5-10 minutes to complete – Ykes!

That’s when I decided I wanted to learn how to make websites myself but I chose to learn (self hosted platform) rather than a programming language.


All these years later, I now have quite a lot of experience with WordPress but, it’s a lot more complicated for clients to manage and make their own edits if they don’t already have experience with WordPress. And, there are constant updates to themes and plugins and, you need to ensure that it’s backed up regularly. So, that’s why I also offer Squarespace website design that clients can manage on their own after I’ve done my part with the design & SEO elements.

Why hire me as your website designer?

I come from a sales and customer service background and so I value a collaborative partnership where communication and follow up are the cornerstones of that relationship. We begin our journey with a strategy call so that I can understand your business as well as your goals and vision for your website.

Once we agree to work together, you provide me with the content, your logo, branding colours, images and I’ll get to work. I’ll provide you with weekly updates on the progress of your website build and, I’m available to answer questions throughout the duration of the project as well as make revisions along the way.

I am also experienced with search engine optimization and local SEO and have experience with getting client websites to that coveted first page of Google for their chosen keywords so, I will ensure that all the elements of on page SEO are in place for you as well as your internal linking structure. Then, I’ll teach you how to update your site so you can take care of the basics yourself.  The project timeline is generally 4-8 weeks to completion, depending on my project load at any given time. 

I love delighting my clients and so I go the extra mile to ensure my clients are happy with their website. You want to focus on what you do best which is serving your own clients. Allow me to take care of the technical aspect of designing a website that you love.
