Once the site goes live, you’ll be able to manage it in the normal way, through the WordPress dashboard or you can get us to edit it for you. Our sites are built with a custom installation of the Divi theme, which means that you’ll be able to make minor changes yourself as well as adding new posts and pages to keep the site fresh.

At all times, your domain remains in your ownership and control.


* This is a flexible package – each author has different needs based on where they are in their career and their particular aims. You’ll get the support you need, but the list given here is a typical one. If you need more time on one aspect (eg MailerLite setup) and less on Google Analytics, that’s fine. We’re very reasonable.
