Launchpad starts at $1200 + website hosting. It does include a 2 page website with a premium theme. Contact form with map [if needed] Links out to any social media channels. Google Business Profile Set-up & tutorial. Google Analytics set-up.
How do I make changes to my website?
You will have access to a online tutorial taking you on a behind the scenes tour on how to make basic copy changes.
I don't want to do all the phases.
You can do as many phases as you want. I do suggest if you are a local service providor you at least go to phase 3. This gives you a good base to build your business from.
What is the cost of the additional Phases?
It depends on the Phase. You may need to invest in a CRM [Customer Relationship Management] tool like Mailchimp. Some CRM have free beginning options and as you grow there are monthly fees. If you are thinking of offering a course then a plugin like Learndash is necessary which does have a yearly licencing fee. I am always transparent about ongoing costs before work is done.
What platform do you build on?
I build all my sites on WordPress.org because it’s SEO-friendly, leading to higher rankings in Google. Plus, it offers flexible functionality with WooCommerce integration for eCommerce sites, and prioritizes security. You can also incorporate Google Analytics to get valuable insights into website visitors and performance.
Do you provide social media services?
In my other service The 5 STAR Solution I do offer social media services but for Launchpad I have partnered with a another marketing professional that offers social media services. This service is an additional cost to the Launchpad Phases.
What kind of additional costs may I have to budget for?
Some services you might need to pay for separately are Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tools, like Mailchimp, Mailerlite, or Convertkit. They’re handy for sending emails, but yeah, they usually come with a monthly fee. The cost depends on how many subscribers you have. And hey, if you’re into offering courses or memberships, you’ll want something like Learndash or Memberpress, which go for around $200 USD per year.
Do I have to progress through the phases?
I have created the phases so you can build your online business in a logical order. By doing it this way it reduces being overwhelmed with all the online tasks required to build your business. It also allows a business owner to budget their website growth.
What about back-ups and updates to keep my site secure?
I offer hosting that includes, security back-ups & updates. You don’t need to do anthing. You can also chose your own hosting but you will be responsible for managing the security of your own website.
Do I have to do everything in Phase 4?
The Phase 4 choices are meant to further build your business online but you can choose one or many. I will help guide you to the best choice or choices for your business.
I would like to jump to Phase 5?
As long as you have done Phase 3 you can choose options from Phase 5. However, before offering course or membership having a solid online business base is very important.

What if I want to sell things through my website?
With your site, you can easily start accepting payments for services, digital or physical products, and even courses & memberships. I use Woocommerce for handling payments, and the best part is, it’s a free WordPress plugin for simple purchases. Now, if you plan to offer subscription services, you’ll need to get a yearly license, which is around $200 USD. Also, keep in mind that you’ll pay a small percentage of each sale to a payment processor like Stripe.
