The Ultimate Guide to tidying up and simplifying your website

There can always be another tweak to your website copy, photos can and should be updated every couple of years, and you should always seek to make your website easier to navigate to eliminate any confusion. Personally, I love to do an audit and simplify my website at least once a year. And I recommend doing a website audit of your own website a couple of times a year too, by looking over your website from top to bottom and ...
Becoming a Website Wiz: A Case Study with Einfach Amarie

Becoming a Website Wiz: A Case Study

Due to an overabundance of custom web design projects (of which I've been very grateful for), I decided to start working with clients through consulting in the fall of last year to help free up some of my time. Up until that point, I'd worked with many clients through one-hour consulting sessions but these types of packages were a completely new thing for me. And I only had a handful of consulting clients working with me at that time. Since then, I've ...

The #1 thing you need before creating your website

Each morning, you desire to wake up and put on a pot of yummy coffee, then walk into your home studio with huge bay windows that fill the room up with the most glorious natural light, and you start painting or knitting or creating whatever it is that you love to create. Your fingers are itching to get messy with paint or to feel the yarn of your most recent creation wrapping around and around your knitting needles. THIS is the vision of ...

How to create a business website when you’re on a budget

By now, you’re probably aware that it takes money to run a creative business, whether it’s a side-hustle or whether you want to make it your full-time thing. But without a website or customers to buy from you, you might not have a significant budget to get your site up and running. Or to make it look the way that you want it to, at least not yet. And web design isn’t a skill that everyone has, so you might ...

I’m thinking about the goals that I’ve carried over, year after year, on ...

How to embrace your website Brand Style

How to embrace your website Brand style

My style as a teenager was very eclectic. You may have described me as a hippie/ vagabond dreamer, who wore wanderlust on her sleeve. Or an eccentric artist who embraced her weird and didn’t care what others thought. I remember my brother asking me, “so, what are you? I mean, are you a skater-gothic chic or a cowgirl?” I looked down at my wide-legged skate pants, my brown polyester shirt that I got from my grandpa’s yard sale, and touched ...
