A team effort

Our work is driven by a passion for helping small businesses, organizations and artists look good and stand out online with the perfect branding and design. Yet some small biz owners can't afford to pay full price for a killer website. And some may invest in a high quality website (because they know it is essential to their brand), but adding a monthly retainer for marketing, design, content development and implementation doesn't initially fit into a startup budget.

And these limited budgets are often accompanied by even less time.

So finding time to efficiently research, create and then implement a professional digital brand experience on their own is out of the question for many small business owners. So after years of wanting to be able to help people who aren't ready to invest in a full-service solution, I've restructured a big piece of my business towards meeting these hardworking entrepreneurs in the middle.

Hands on

Shopfront Creative now offers hands-on workshops that help big-thinking entrepreneurs with limited startup budgets create websites with a specialist by their side.

Every workshop attendee gets exclusive discounts to reward them for taking the leap, and they'll leave each workshop with their new website in hand plus all the tools and mindset they need to take it home and customize it into a stunning online brand presence.

No one-night stands

This will be a team effort after the workshops, as well. We follow up via email to be sure you have all the resources you need, and we host regular advanced design workshops for those who want to come back for more (such as advanced integrations, launch campaigns, SEO and promotional tools).

We've also begun offering individual and group consulting sessions to help small businesses (and nonprofits) design effective marketing strategies. As with all of our clients, we want to do everything we can to help you earn more customers and revenue so you can grow your business. Scroll down and sign up if you're interested in joining us.

Advanced web design and customization workshops go deeper and take it to the next level for those who want to come back for more (such as advanced integrations, launch campaigns, SEO and promotional tools) and finalize their websites before launch. Our Startup Web Design course is a prerequisite to this advanced workshop. Content / blog publishing and SEO direction, promotional graphic design (no Adobe necessary) and Mailchimp training are also included.

1-on-1 & group sessions

These private workshops vary in degree but begin as individual and group consulting workshops that show small businesses and nonprofits how to design simple yet effective web properties and marketing strategies. These sessions are booked privately and are fully customizable, but focus heavily on content marketing (including email), lead generation, creative marketing campaign design and execution, and highly-targeted Facebook ads. If you're interested please apply soon; these are in high demand and are filling our calendar.
