If you've created your own website, you know the struggle of spending hours on a computer and becoming numb to all the details on your site. Maybe you've read over your about page 10 times or struggled to get the banner just right so it's not blurry, not too big or too small. After awhile, the stress leads to mistakes you no longer see. At some point it feels like it's good enough and gets the "done!" stamp as you release it in to the wild, deciding it's totally fine. And you're right, it is fine. It is better to get it out there in the world than to hold on to it until it's perfect - because it will never be. You'll always want to change and update and that is completely natural, links will become broken through no fault of your own, or phone updates change the way something shows up.
Maybe you had some friends look over your site and everyone said, "Hey! That looks great! Good job you!" and you're feeling good about it.
A few months later:
You notice a weird typo - damn incorrect autocorrect!
A friend tells you a link is broken.
You look at your site on your phone and notice that banner you spent so long on looks totally off.
A client finds text overlapping an image that hadn't shown up before (or had it?!)
You start to wonder... how many people have noticed these things, and how many more things like this are there?!
I notice these things on other people's sites all the time. It is so much harder to see them on my own site, and I know the same is true for others. Which is why I offer this service. I'm that helpful friend that provides you with constructive, detailed feedback, sees that apostrophe that is missing, finds that big gap in text that only shows up on mobile devices, clicks all the links to find the single broken one. I may not find every single thing, but I will find a lot. All combined, they'll give your website a dust off that allows you, your content and offerings to shine more brightly.
In some cases I may provide feedback that is a bit more subjective if it is something I feel could improve the site or the way your material is presented. I might find something confusing or clunky feeling that could be easily remedied.
I will look at your site as a detail oriented client or potential collector. I will not be looking at it as a web developer, because I am not that at all. I most likely won't be able to give advice on how to fix technical issues.
I specialize in looking at sites for artists and creatives, health/wellness, coaches/spiritual teachers.
I am currently offering 4 different options:
I give the entire site a quick once over and catch as many big things as possible. I can find a lot in 15 min, but I can't get to everything, especially if there is a lot of copy. I spend time looking at your site on desktop and mobile because I often see issues on one that don't show up on the other - this might be a limited time offer.
This expands upon the initial 15 minutes, starts to find the smaller detail mishaps, more copy can be read, more time spent comparing desktop/mobile views, add things to shopping cart and start checkout process, if applicable. ($50)
A much more thorough deep cleaning, more of the minute details like two spaces between a word instead of 1. I see and look more for the things that create visual discord. This can sometimes mean a grammatical error or missing word, but my intent is not straight up proofreading - there are other people that specialize in that. ($100)
Full website review with no time constraints. A deposit will be made and an estimate given on the number of hours potentially needed based upon number of pages/content per page. Final bill at the end of the review (starts at $200)
