“She is the perfect blend of creative and technical”

Traditional web design projects tend to be over complicated and drawn out, with designers juggling your project alongside many others

(I know… it used to be my process for many years!)

Constant multitasking, back-and-forth emails that you can’t keep track of, and a 4-6 week wait for your website and brand identity. It’s frustrating for everyone involved!

Well, here’s the solution…

⭐️ Web Design VIP Days ⭐️

 

My undivided attention, focus and expertise for 1-4 days.
A simple, pain-free and collaborative way to get your WordPress website up fast

This is for you if:

You're an established business OR you're a startup with a clear business vision

You're an ambitious founder and quick at making decisions

You need a professional website fast! AND are willing to spend some time on the pre-work.

Once you’ve booked your day, you’ll receive access to my client portal which guides you through the process and includes a Brand & Website discovery workbook, and guided copywriting system, honed over my many years of designing websites.

My VIP Design Days mean you’ll get great work fast and full support from me!

Natalie Lacon
Natalie played a pivotal role in shaping both my brand and website for my nutritional therapy business, and I couldn't be more delighted with the outcome. Collaborating with her has been an absolute pleasure. She radiates warmth and consistently maintained a friendly and positive attitude while approaching the project with the utmost professionalism. Her depth of knowledge shines through in the exceptional website she has crafted. Right from the outset, Natalie grasped the essence and feelings I sought to convey through my website, transforming my initial ideas into a stunning online presence that perfectly aligns with my vision. I wholeheartedly recommend Natalie to anyone in search of a skilled professional to bring their business website to life.

I couldn’t be happier with my new fresh, modern yet welcoming website. I especially appreciate how collaborative the process was. Natalie really took note of my needs and preferences, and worked with me every step of the way to ensure the final product was exactly what I wanted. The attention to detail and willingness to make changes based on my feedback made the process really easy and enjoyable. The website looks fantastic. The colours, fonts, images, and layout all work together to create a zesty bright website which reflects the character of my nutritional therapy business. The functionality works seamlessly and it’s easy to navigate. I couldn’t ask for more. Natalie really hit the nail on the head with the design and layout, it’s clear that a lot of effort and thought has gone into every aspect of it. Alison Peacham

Natalie developed my branding and website for my new business. She is brilliant to work with, friendly, positive, and very knowledgeable and provides a great structure so your time together is managed efficiently. Natalie straight away understood and captured the message and feeling that I wanted to convey. She took my simple words and ideas and translated this into a beautiful website.

Natalie is awesome - she made the whole process so human and I felt that she really 'got' me and my business. The colour schemes and fonts and everything feel very 'me' and I love the end product. The VIP experience was a really efficient way of working and means that you get to see the end product way quicker than the usual 6 week turnaround. Highly recommend!

Natalie first built my website and created a new logo for my business (Heaven is a Cupcake) 4 years a go when I moved into a commercial premises and launched an online shop. She has, ever since, hosted my site and provided very much needed web support for all those times I accidentally delete something or spend hours trying to edit one product! She always comes to my rescue and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Most recently she has given my whole website and brand a refresh. She has created the most beautiful, professional website ever and I am so happy with the new direction my brand is taking. She has really put my vision into a reality. Thank you Natalie, you are an absolute star!

Natalie is a pleasure to work with. I have worked with other developers and designers in the past and I haven’t had the same experience. Natalie is very friendly, extremely organised and reliable and she has great ideas. I absolutely love the finish product and will continue to work with her as I see my business grow. Nothing is too much trouble for her, she has researched different functionalities that I needed to find the most suitable alternative and she has come up with a contemporary design for my brand. I recommend her work to anybody looking for a great website and new branding.

I would highly recommend Natalie at Lacon Design for branding and website design/build. Her experience and expertise in these areas was clear from the outset, as she quickly told me what functionality I would need in my website to ensure that it was fit for purpose for my business (I’m a nutritionist). The rest of the experience followed in a similar vein, with a comprehensive onboarding doc, timing plan and a detailed questionnaire and mood board which really helped me to get clear on my strategy and design preferences before Natalie began work. The end results in terms of logo, branding and website have exceeded my expectations in every way. Natalie is an absolute pleasure to work with and really went above and beyond throughout, in terms of making sure all the branding elements were spot on and even adding an additional sign-up module to the website days before we went live, just because she felt it would help to increase engagement on the site. I would urge anyone who was thinking about developing/refreshing their brand identity and website to book in for an initial call!

Here’s How It Works

Book a discovery call to make sure we’re a good fit, see how many days we need and see where our focus should be. Then…

1

Book Your Day

I’ll send you a link to secure your date in my diary, you’ll pay your 50% deposit or pay in full.

I’ll send over access to my client portal with everything you need to do to prepare and make our day/s together a huge success.

* exact resources may depend on the VIP Day booked

2

Complete Prepwork

You’ll complete your prep work (I’ll guide you so don’t worry) and we’ll review and discuss everything in time for our Kick off Call about a week before the VIP Design Day.

This will give us time to understand your business and discuss your website & identity goals and run through our plan for the day/s.

3

Your VIP Day

You’ll have my full attention and expertise for the day to focus soley on your business and our collaboration.

We’ll communicate via WhatsApp, and I’ll need you to be available for questions and feedback – it’s collaborative process and I’ll share screenshots for review and you’ll have access to view the website as its being built.

4

After Support

After your day your balance is due and I’ll send over any files and/or full access to your website along with a handover and resources.

You’ll also receive 1 hour of support for any tweaks/edits and 30 days of email support if you have any questions about the work completed. I can record short ‘how to’ videos to help with your website.

The more prepared we are and the faster you can make decisions on the day, the more we can achieve; my estimates are realistic & achieveable but please note that I don’t promise deliverables as every person and business is different.

 

Are you ready to take the next step?

Let’s chat about your business and find out what we can do in a day!

Alternatively Book Your VIP Day to reserve your date or take a look at my frequently asked questions

Have some questions? Take a look at my FAQs

I already have a brand identity but I need a website, can you help?

Yes, absolutely! If you have worked with a brand designer I can design and create your new website using your brand guidelines.

Or if you already have a logo, I can expand your brand identity with a colour palette and typography.

I don't have a brand identity but I need a website, can you help?

Yes, I offer simple typographic logos along with colour palettes, typographic systems, and a brand summary. So you can have visual consistency across all your touchpoints (ie. website, social media, print collateral etc.).

Do I need to reserve a domain name?

Yes you do – If you don’t already have a domain name registered I recommend using GoDaddy, then you will be able to give delegate access to your web designer – so they have access to make the necessary changes to your DNS records (required to get your website online).

Alternatively LCN.com they are based in the UK and are very helpful.

I would like a branded email address - can you help with this?

I don’t offer email hosting, as email is a specialist service (there’s alot to consider with support, delivery and spam etc.)

However I recommend using Google Workspace  (business starter @£5 per month) for a branded email address ie. hello@yourdomainname.com

It’s a reliable service and its helpful to have a Google account for things like Analytics and Google My Business.

Do you offer website hosting & care plans?

Yes I offer a managed hosting and care plan service to keep your investment safe and secure, among other things it includes uptime monitoring, ssl certificates, premium Divi theme licence, regular backups.

I host your website through Rochen.com and I choose them for the great support, reliable service, UK based servers. This means if you have a hosting issue you can come directly to me and I will liase with them directly on your behalf.

They also provide Carbon Neutral Hosting and have partnered with Green Mountain Energy, the leading provider of cleaner energy and carbon offsetting solutions, to offset 100% of the carbon emissions of our hosting services.

My managed hosting & care plan is £25 per month for my Essentials plan you can see details of my care plans here.

Will I be able to update my new website myself?

Yes you will, on completion of your website you will be give full access and a handover document to help you make changes as required be that changing text or images. I will also be on hand if you require any further assistance with this or more complex changes. Each website VIP Design Day comes with 30 days email support, so if you need help with something I can advise or create a quick Loom video to help.

I offer care plans for monitoring, backups and WordPress, theme and plugin updates. You can view care plan details here.

How do we get started?

You can check my availability and book your VIP Design Day/s or book a discovery call so we can chat about your goals and requirements and how many days you might need and I can answer any questions you have or you can just drop me an email here hello@lacondesign.co.uk

Once you’ve booked you’ll get full access to my client welcome portal where I guide you through my process step by step, enabling you to get the best results for your business.

 

Do you offer payment plans?

Payments are in 2 parts – a 50% deposit is required to book your VIP Design Day

The remaining 50% balance payment is due within 24 hours of the VIP Design Day intensive.

Final artwork, deliverables or website go live will only happen on the receipt of the final payment.

Do I need professional photography?

It is possible to create a stunning website that converts without professional photography and just a headshot of you (this is key as you’re the brand embassador) and initially this is what many clients choose to do.

That said professional photography can take your brand to the next level with a completely unique look tailored to you and your business. It can showcase your personality and help to attract your ideal clients; though I appreciate that that’s not always possible and sometimes it’s better to wait after you’ve been in business for a while.

As your business grows if you decide to invest in professional brand photography we can replace your stock images.

Can you help me with copywriting, I'm not confident writing the text for my website?

I use a content collection system that guides you step by step guide through writing your website copy with conversion in mind; including headings, subheadings, body copy and more so you never have the dreaded ‘blank page syndrome’,  and I also provide a content guide and other resources to help.

If you still don’t think that writing your own copy is for you, I can suggest some copywriters.

Do you offer Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

I don’t offer SEO services as it is it’s own specialism and my expertise is in web design and branding. However, all of the WordPress websites that I build are optimised and built with SEO in mind, are setup with Google Analytics and Search Console and are submitted to Google for indexing.
However, if organic search is really important to you it’s worth considering the following –
1) Investing in a website copywriter who is skilled in writing for SEO (I can suggest some) they will also spend some time on keyword/phrase research.
2) Blogging regularly – weekly if possible and releasing the blog posts at the same time every week. (Great for visitors, they come to expect it and Google loves fresh content)
3) Setup a Google Business Profile https://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/business/. (used to be called Google my Business) – and also get reviews.
4) Consider using a digital marketing company that specialises in SEO on a monthly retainer basis.
