Website Consultation

We counselors often miss immense opportunities because of our lack of business skills. Our websites often look crappy and we need help with design. To have a website custom-built it can cost $1,000+, add SEO, on-going support, and having an eye for marketing, photos, well…it gets really expensive really quick. I think that is ridiculous! Counselors should have great designed websites that don’t just steal from our hard-earned money.

Sweat Equity

We each know our limits when it comes to technology. Some folks need help with basic set up and then quick training, others need a lot more. Either way, growing your knowledge, while also knowing what you don’t have time or desire to learn.

Because I keep getting requests from counselors new and old, that are sick of the same old website with high expenses, I thought I would offer some thoughts and resources. I have broken down these consultation packages in three areas:

1. Platinum Website Package: We do most of the work, saving you time to do counseling or whatever else you want to do.

2. Gold Website Package: We get things going for you, then you grow and build it after we teach you how.

3. Silver Website Package: We teach you the basics of building a website, then you rock it out!

 

Need a website? Which package would you like?
