There comes a time in every travel blogger’s life when they realize how badly they need to work with a web designer. But what are the signs? Here are 5 life-changing reasons to work with a web designer.
You don’t have time to build a website
Between working, traveling and creating content, you have no time to put into time-consuming tasks like setting up your website. Working with an organized and helpful web designer will free up time for you to do more of what you LOVE.
I have worked with clients all over the world with jam-packed schedules. With me guiding the project with my signature process & project management tools, you’ll stay on top of your timeline and know exactly when to get stuff done.
You feel overwhelmed when it comes to tech
Setting up a website is no simple task, even when it comes to changing colors and fonts! Not to mention the headaches you face if you ever want to set up a shop or change your domain name.
I’ve helped my custom web design clients move to WordPress from other platforms, change domain names, and create whole online course academies. The right web designer will point you in the right direction and help you figure out those annoying tech questions.
You can never decide on a style
You know how important it is to develop a distinct visual style (aka brand identity) but you can never stick to one cohesive palette. Developing a brand identity that feels like you keeps everything consistent on your blog and other media channels. It sets a standard for your blog!
When I work with my design clients, we always start the project by doing a Pinterest inspiration board, developing a mood board, selecting fonts and creating a style guide with a color palette that feels like you. An experienced web designer will get a feel for your personality & your target audience to craft an epic brand.
You want to stand out among the competition
One of the best ways to stand out is to have a beautiful website that is branded to your style. There aren’t many options for websites for travel bloggers especially, so you end up having the same website as a thousand other bloggers.
I’ve worked with big-time travel bloggers like Renee Roaming and Christina Galbato to help them move from basic templates to dreamy custom designs. Even if you don’t need custom, we can get you something that looks more unique.
You want to start monetizing your blog
Fact: it takes less than seven seconds to form a first impression. What’s your website saying to a visitor? Poor design structure, mismatched aesthetics, too many pop-ups & overwhelming options can all make a visitor press the “back” button.
When you work with a strategic designer, you get insight on how to properly structure each page. You get more than a pretty website – you get a website that converts your readers, books you those dream brands, and establishes you as a leader.
