Feeling a little… underwhelming?
Creating a website that truly represents your brand can be confusing, frustrating and at times totally crappy. Building an online presence all alone can lead to a final product that doesn’t really fit your brand’s personality, and doesn’t speak to your ideal client.
All that work and it’s juuuuust not the right fit somehow. Right?
I get it, which is why I’ve created a customizable website framework to help you create a stellar online presence!
A Website That Truly Represents Your Business:
Together we will:
- Get clear on your mission/vision/values and goals for your website
- Establish a brand voice and personality
- Design a user flow with written content that inspires action
- Build and launch a customized website in just 4 weeks!
Spots are limited, book a call with me now to snag yours!
I know that the tech, the images, the content can all be so overwhelming.
Putting all of these different pieces together even with the know-how can be a lot to manage, especially when you’re feeling pressure to get a reliable website up and running.
Before I took The Ultimate Creative full time, I built websites for my side hustles. I would spend hours and hours testing different platforms, page builders, plugin combinations – you name it! One plugin would conflict and the site would crash. The server would need an update, and the site would crash.
Finally, I created a framework that not only supports the basic needs of any entrepreneur’s web presence, but it also grows with them as their businesses grow. How do I know? Well, you’re looking at it! This site started as a 5 pager with a blog, and now it’s a fully functioning ecommerce site with a membership and an online learning platform.
Yeah, you can take these sites anywhere your business is headed.
Does this sound familiar?
You are an entrepreneur or creative with a clear vision for what you want and are ready to execute on a rapid timeline but you’re not sure where to start
You need an online presence that truly represents your brand personality
You’ve worked with designers or developers in the past that didn’t seem to align with your vision
You need a website that can grow and adapt easily with your business but you’re not sure what the benefits are with different platforms like WordPress, SquareSpace or Shopify
You’ve DIY’d as much as you can and now you need a bit of a boost to get to the next level
You want to work collaboratively and efficiently with someone who has your best interests at heart and is invested in your business’ success
If any of this is hitting a nerve, I’m with you.
I know how frustrating it feels to take on a big project without understanding all the moving pieces. I’ve worked through these challenges time and time again, not just with my own businesses but with so many clients that just wanted a website that worked for them.
So, let’s create a website that actually works for you!

I’m taking all of the experience I’ve gained by helping coaches, service providers, freelancers and industry leaders, and turning it into a totally customized system that sets your business up for online success.

“I can’t begin to express how impressed I am by the work that Emily has done for my website, glowingmama.com. When I decided to re-brand, I was unsure that anyone would be able to bring my vision to life. Emily took the time to listen, and implement all of my needs and wants down to the most minuscule detail. Everything that we discussed was organized, implemented, and updated in a timely manner, until I felt that it was the perfect representation of me and my business. Not only did she create a beautiful and functional website for me, but she taught me how to navigate it on my own, so that I can continually update it to reflect my business as it evolves. So much love and gratitude!”

How It Works
Book your discovery call with me to discuss your website vision and set your launch date (typically at least 4 weeks away). Then, you’ll get immediate access* to the content writing mini-course to help you gather your assets and write your content!
The course includes:
- 4 strategy video lessons
- Workbook full of content and blog writing prompts
- 5 page content templates
- User flow template
- SEO basics
- Landing page and opt-in strategies
*You’ll have free access to the course for up to 2 weeks before signing and deposit. After our planned kick-off date, access will only be available if the project agreement is signed and deposit is paid.
Week 1: Content + Assets
(50% – $1250 CAD deposit due along with signed contract)
Complete the content writing mini-course and send me all of your completed assets and content. We will book our 1 hour kickoff call on the Thursday of this week and review everything together. The deposit is due before our kickoff call.
Assets and content include:
- Brand Assets – Your colours, fonts and logos.
- Customer Journey – Don’t worry, I walk you through this!
- Written Content – Need help? Use the templates!
- Template Selection – Choose the template that fits your brand personality best (original designs by The Ultimate Creative)
Week 2: Rapid Build
I’ll send you the first version of your site by the end of this week! Your vision will come to life, I’ll incorporate your brand personality into your choice of original TUC design template, organize your content into your customer journey, and add unique flourishes to really set your site apart!
Week 3: Revision-Palooza!
(40% – $1000 due before moving on to the revision phase)
At the start of this week you’ll send me as many edits* as you can, (i.e. change this colour, replace this text, change this icon) and I will turn them around within 1-2 business days. You can send me updated revisions throughout the week, which is especially handy if you need to see something two ways before making a final call.
On the Friday of this week we’ll do a 1 hour screen share review together and your website will be ready to launch!
*Additional edits can be requested after launch at $150/hour, so get those revisions organized in week 3!)
Week 4: Launch Time!
(10% – $250 due before we flip the switch to launch)
Your website is going live! But it’s more than that.
- Setting up Google Analytics
- Adding your site to search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing
- Testing connections* (i.e. email list sign ups, booking calendar flow)
- Setting up your Facebook Pixel*
- Setting up your SSL certificate**
*Optional, depending on your external apps and plugins
**Purchased separately through your hosting provider
Do I have to do the course if I already have everything ready?
I’d recommend reviewing the course material to make sure everything is covered, PLUS, there are a lot of cool nuggets in there that will help you manage your content going forward, so why not check it out?
What if I don't have the materials ready in time? Can I have an extension?
Before we sign off on contracts or money changes hands, it’s important that you have all of your content and assets ready to go. This sets us up for a successful 4 week website build! By getting everything together before we start, the build will be faster, the revision process will be super speedy, and we can launch on time!
What if my site isn't ready to launch by week 4?
We can set your site up on your server and hide it behind a password protected screen. Any additional revisions can be completed at $150 CAD/hour.
However, I will say, if we get everything ready during prep and week 1, this won’t happen because we’ll have a clear strategic plan to get us ready within 4 weeks!
Can I do the course without purchasing a website?
Absolutely! The course on its own is $249, you can pick that up right here.
Are a domain and hosting included?
Nope, because we believe in you owning your own stuff! We’ll give you recommendations for where to buy them and we’ll make sure they’re set up for success!
Will you help me set up hosting?
Yep! All we need is a login to your preferred hosting provider. We can give you a few recommendations if you’re not sure which one to go with.
Will you show me how to manage my site?
We’ve got a growing library of tutorials that we add to with every new question we receive! So if something isn’t covered, we’ll create a video that shows you exactly how to manage the element that you need help with.
Will you set up my email newsletter?
We’ll definitely add an email signup embed code and custom style it to match your site! You’ll be responsible for setting up the email platform (i.e. Mailchimp/Convertkit etc.) and giving us the embed code(s)!
I have more questions!
