WordPress Blog Design

Everything you need to know about having your blog designed by us.
A  Note  From Candice

I get emails every week from girls who want to be bloggers but don’t know how to set up their blogs. The main concern seems to be not having the technical know-how and also not having enough money to pay a designer. I get it, everyone doesn’t have 2k to drop on their first (or second website.) I wish I could build free blogs for everyone but it takes a lot of time and resources to build a blog that works well.

I decided to create what I believe is an affordable package so that you can have a great blog without breaking the bank.

Our customized WordPress blog design is $650.

This is meant to be a basic and affordable alternative to blog design packages that can run into the thousands. This is not a package where you’ll get a website with a bunch of complicated customized designs BUT you will get a lot. You will have a blog that is unique to you and something you can be proud of. Our blogs are meant to be a starting point that you can grow into and change as you become more familiar with WordPress.

Please read our offerings below so that you have a full understanding of what you’re getting with this package. I’ll be building a lot of the blogs but I’m also working with a very talented team of designers so that you can have the blog of your dreams in no time. Email info@browngirlbloggers.com with any questions you have.

Thanks for rocking with us. Your support means the world.

How It  Works

1. SUBMIT & PAY FOR YOUR ORDER

The first thing you’re going to do is fill out and submit the order form linked on this site. This provides us with the information we need to create a design you’ll love. Give as many details as possible when answering the questions as that will make it easier for us to give you the look you want. Once you have submitted the form we will review it and if accepted you will receive a Paypal invoice within 48 hours. You have the option to pay for your order in full ($650) or make a non-refundable 50% deposit ($325). We won’t start working on your order until you’ve submitted your deposit. If you decide to make a deposit instead of paying for your order in full you will have to pay your balance in full before we install your website. 

2. ORDER CONFIRMATION

We will reply to your order within 48 business hours. Please note that Saturdays and Sundays are not business days and we are on Pacific Standard Time unless otherwise noted. If you don’t see a reply within 48 hours please check your spam folder. If you still don’t see a reply send an email to info@browngirlbloggers.com. This is where we may ask follow-up questions and when you will receive a start date for your project.

3. THE WAITING PERIOD

There will be at least one week wait time before your project begins. During this time you should do a few things to prepare for the start of your project.

Create a Pinterest board full of inspiration for your blog design. Include colors, fonts, pictures, quotes, and anything else that captures the feel you want for your blog.
Get your pages and content together if you don’t already have a blog. This includes things like your about page text and picture, sidebar information, contact information, etc. This is vital to completing your blog design and we can’t finish without these things. We don’t write the content of your blog for you. That is an extra service called copywriting.
Send us anything extra we need to know to complete your design. If you forgot to mention something at any point now is the time to send emails to make sure everything is ready to go on your start date.

4. START DATE & DESIGN PROCESS 

On your start date your designer will contact you to introduce herself and ask any lingering questions. At that point the design stage will start. This is when we look at your Pinterest board, get your hosting information (if needed), and any additional info we may need. You will be in constant contact with the designer at this point to verify colors, header design, blog design, etc. Once your design is perfected on a test site it will be emailed to you. At this point you’ll note the changes you want to be made or any input you may have. We offer three revisions. This is when you email the designer about changes and tweaks to the site. There isn’t usually a need for more than three revisions but if there is the extra time will be billed to you at $50 an hour. 

Once you are completely happy with your design you will sign an installation approval form and pay your remaining balance if applicable. Note, your website will not be installed until your remaining balance is paid. 

5. INSTALLATION

Once your installation approval form has been signed we will install the design to your live site. No major revisions can be done after the installation process has begun. Your designer will place a coming soon page on your blog and being the installation which may take anywhere from a few hours to a day or two. During this time you should not make ANY changes to your site.

6. AFTER INSTALLATION 

Within a day or two of your blog being installed you should go over everything. We will provide up to one hour of free support where we can answer any basic trouble-shooting questions. This expires after 30 days. If you need complex technical support you will be billed hourly however, we don’t handle issues dealing with hosting.

Things  To  Note

You will need to purchase a hosting plan before we get started. We recommend Hostgator.

Our sites are set up with WordPress.org not WordPress.com. We don’t do design work for WordPress.com.

We do not offer hosting technical support. You will have to contact your blog’s host if you experience any technical difficulties not directly related to your blog’s design. Our goal is to offer a great WordPress design that you can maintain on your own. You should be able to do things like update your posts and photography without our help.

We are not responsible for your site’s security. It is up to you to make sure your site is protected from spam and hackers. Your host will have plenty of options for you to choose from.

This does not include email setup.

This does not include photography services like photoshop or custom stock photography. That is an extra service that you may inquire about.
