As a freelance website designer, I've chosen Weebly as my platform of choice.
Weebly is easy-to-use with its drag-and-drop builder, but the main reason I use it is because it allows me to create beautiful websites that are mobile-friendly.
Here a five examples of websites I've created in Weebly for solopreneurs and small business owners like you.
Website for a Grief Coach
Diane Morgan of GiveGriefaChance.com is not new to the entrepreneurial world. She's done all sorts of coaching and has had other websites for her different businesses. The past few years, though, she's decided to only focus on grief recovery and has even started a podcast.
Diane reached out to me because she wanted a new website that would:
The Listen page links to Apple Podcasts, making it easy for people to listen to her podcasts directly from her website or subscribe on iTunes.
She has two contact forms, one for people wanting to share their grief story on her podcast and another for potential clients to fill out to set up a time to have a free call with Diane.
Website for an Artist
Drew Boatright, found at DrewBoatrightArt.com, is an artist trained in Fort Worth at the Texas Academy of Figurative Art, where he's also now a teacher. Drew came to me because he needed a place to have his portfolio online.
I love the painting that Drew chose for the header on his Home page. We used a beige color from that image to create the background of his newsletter sign-up form.
Drew wanted to keep his website as simple as possible, focusing only on the art. On the Portfolio page, we used Weebly's Gallery function, but turned off the auto-play feature so guests can spend time studying each image. For the last page, Drew included a Bio, so people can get to know him as an artist.
Website for a Boutique
Rebecca Avant of MayfairontheBlvd.com was one of my very first clients. Originally, I created just a one-page website for her, very similar to the Home page you see now.
Later, Rebecca came back to me wanting to add a store to her website and start selling her beautiful creations online.
Since she was on a budget, I created the store for her and set up the categories and added a couple products to the store, but then I taught her how to add products to the store on her own.
Rebecca is now utilizing Pinterest as a way to showcase her creations and link back to her website.
Website for a doTERRA Essential Oil Advocate
Melissa Grassmick, a wellness advocate for doTERRA, wanted her own website in addition to the replicated website that doTERRA provides. She had created a website for herself using Strikingly, but decided to hire me to recreate and update her website in Weebly.
One of my favorite features of Melissa's website at eowellness.net is the Upcoming Classes area. Melissa teaches essential oil classes online and uses Eventbrite as a way for people to register for the classes. Using a Weebly app, we were able to connect her Eventbrite account to Weebly and automatically post her upcoming classes on her website. Students can click on the classes to go directly to Eventbrite and register.
In case she has no upcoming classes, here's what that looks like:
Website for a Therapist
Dr. Brian Goonan had a website at less-stress.net, which a friend had created for him. It wasn't mobile-friendly nor that attractive and didn't convey Dr. Goonan's personality to his potential clients.
Dr. Goonan hired me to create a new website for him in Weebly. He chose a favorite photograph of his for the Home page header and I found some other stock photos that fit with the look and feel he was going for.
We uploaded new client paperwork for his clients to download before their first appointment. He has contact information, including a map to his office and his phone number, on the Contact page to make him easy to get in touch with.
I hope this gives you some idea of the types of websites that I can create for you using Weebly.
