This weeks goal was all about finding a “client” to develop a squarespace website for. It’s important for me to go through the entire web development process from A-Z, to learn through hands on trial and error.
The first step was to decide who my ideal client is. After lots of distractions (code for: cute dog needed a snuggle + @shopbop sale) this is the initial working statement for my immediate business goals: To design and develop logo, branding and website design for women starting their own business, and to provide them with the knowledge and skills to confidently promote themselves online through various social media outlets.
With this statement in mind, I approached my boxing + bootcamp trainer, and an all-around gem of positivity, humor and mental strength. Because she fit in well with my initial business goal, I had my fingers triple-crossed for her agreement to work with me on this trial project and was thrilled when she agreed. We met yesterday to chat about her visions for her business and to discuss next steps.
This coming week will be about working on all on-boarding paperwork and sending that to my client to get started. We’ll see how the prepared document works for her and what needs to be revised. In the meantime, I’m heading over to the @squarespace website to sign up for a webinar on blogging. Stay tuned! #icandothis #goals #squarespace #webdesign #spinpincreative
