Why Do You Do What You Do?
Passion. It’s a word tired from overuse.
But you know it when you hear it.
When someone speaks about something, a topic, a cause, an interest – and they just light up.
It’s infectious. You can’t help but feel your heart beat a little quicker.
Have you ever heard someone speak like that?
I have and I am addicted.
I look high and low for people who are passionate about what they do.
The people who scribble ideas down at 2am. Who sit down in the evening, after long day of work, and start creating.
I work with people who have an idea they can’t get out of their head
I want to talk to people who put the ‘why’ first. People who could no more stop what they are doing than sever a limb.
If that’s you, then welcome my friend, you are in exactly in the right place and my diabolic plan to lure out interesting and creative people is working.
What Can We Do Together?
Oh so many things but primarily I want you to get your wonderful, world changing idea, in front of people who are going to fall in love with it.
And yes I do think all ideas are world changing.
We might not be solving world hunger (but if you want to work on that, let me know ASAP) but every new business, piece of art, little spark of creativity?
That’s bringing something new into the world.
And I want to make sure people see it.
If you know exactly what it is but you are worried about whether people will love it as much as you do – do not fear.
Read this and then come talk to me, fear has no place in our world domination plan. Not even a footnote.
I will help you build a website that helps you get in front of ideal customers, guides them through your client journey and helps you solve their problems.
When Is It Time For A New Website?
When I first started out in the online space, I was designing book covers.
I had graphic design skills but very little idea on how to build a website.
I started off on WIX, but was quickly frustrated by the limited options for customising and sharing blog posts (my content strategy was a key piece of my marketing plan, so this was a big issue!).
So, I moved to WordPress. It was a little bit of a learning curve, but I could do so many more things, like using plugins to create viral content and having full control over my SEO.
However, I wasn’t a coding expert. I knew a bit of CSS and HTML, but I was still building my site using drag and drop plugins. And it soon became unsustainable.
The weird miss mash of code was dragging the speed of my website down, sometimes I just couldn’t get a button to sit in quite the right place, the options for getting the website to behave on mobile were limited . . .
Don’t get me wrong, drag and drop is great for when you are starting out and don’t have the resources to hire a developer. But eventually your business gets to the limit where you are getting more clients, you want to expand, you want something custom – you need your site to work.
“I DON’T THINK WE HAVE A CHOICE. I THINK WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO CHANGE THE RULES, TO RAISE THE BAR, TO PLAY A DIFFERENT GAME, AND TO PLAY IT BETTER THAN ANYONE HAS ANY RIGHT TO BELIEVE IS POSSIBLE.”
WHO EVEN ARE YOU?
<—- That’s me!
Hi, I’m Sarah!
I recently returned from two years in Japan back to the UK.
I started off as a book cover designer, before accidentally starting Creative and Coffee after so many people asked me for business advice!
Which is why I feel so passionately about website design.
So many times I’d be talking about increasing clients by using sales funnels, lead magnets, FB pixels . . . but then I’d see many business owners’ websites were losing their clients at the first hurdle –
- People leaving due to slow page times,
- No clear, next step to follow,
- No proper breadcrumb navigation,
- Not looking good on mobile,
- Not to mention all that lost SEO potential.
I would think to myself – if I could just change this here, tweak this there . . .
So, please, let me take all these years of business knowledge and transform your website into a client’s dream journey!
