Thea offers three website plans that help you to deliver your products and services, reach new audiences, and grow your business. Whether you choose a robust Business Website with a range of features, or an Online Store offering powerful e-commerce tools and sales reports, your business will reach new levels when it's backed by powerful communication tools and technology. 


Most designers simply design and lay out pages. Thea offers more. She's a designer and business developer who has a powerful writing sensibility, a diverse understanding of creative markets and decades of experience in the arts industry, an eye for aesthetic, and a keen attention for detail. Thea places an emphasis on brand narrative and making sure that the business is accurately and creatively reflected in the final product. 


All website package plans include: 


  • Content writing
  • Page design & layout
  • Business support & development
  • Business resources and tools
  • Post-publish editing
  • SEO 
  • A client tutorial so that you can independently manage your site


How it works: 

As a GoDaddy Pro Designer, Thea can help you to select the website plan option that will work best for your needs if you don't already have a website product and/or a domain. If you do already have a domain, a website product, or both, and they're hosted elsewhere, Thea can walk you through the easy changeover process or to discuss other options for support.
