A behind-the-scenes look at the tools and strategies my team used for our beautiful website refresh.

When you're building your online business, can you really only rely on social media to scale? The quick answer – NO! While social media is excellent for outreach, you just aren't going to get the same stability, control, and conversion rates as a website. 

But, I know what you're thinking: Amy, how do I even start to build an entire website?! I totally understand how nerve-racking it can be when you’re launching your first website. Mine only had a gray header, my name in black with a shadow, and super cheesy graphics. My friend, we all have to start somewhere! But lucky for you, creating a functional and beautiful website now is actually a whole lot easier and faster than you might think

Today, I share the practical tools, tips, and strategies my team used in our recent website remodel. That's right – you're getting a behind-the-scenes look at how we refreshed our website and a step-by-step walkthrough of the entire redesign process.

Whether you're building a website for the first time or want to uplevel your current one, this episode will help you make a great first impression with your visitors and avoid the mistakes I made early on. Plus, I talk about my favorite platform for website building and how to make your website incredibly engaging and high-converting. 

In this episode, you’ll learn: 

  • (5:28) Website function vs. website beauty and designing effectively and efficiency 
  • (10:47) The main goals I had in mind for my website redesign 
  • (13:36) Why website expert Jen Olmstead believes website templates can completely transform your online presence
  • (19:22) Understanding the three essential pages for your website: homepage, about page, and blog page
  • (24:45) How a User Experience Specialist and an SEO Expert can take your website to the next level
  • (28:40) Everything you need to know about adding images to your website 
  • (30:23) Tips for starting small and scaling later 

Listen in and get started on creating a website that not only looks amazing but also aligns with your business goals!
