Shawna Huntley: life coach

When life coach Shawna Huntley contacted us she had been working on DIY-ing her site for a while. She was looking for professional help to finally get her site done and launched. Not having her site live was keeping her from reaching the goals she’d set for herself to expand her coaching business and start regularly blogging. She knew it was time to get the help she needed with her site so she could focus on the work she loves: help her clients create the lives they want. Click to see Shawna’s new site.

Content Strategy and Copy Writing

We helped Shawna assess her business goals and organize her site structure and content to support those goals. Part of our copy writing process includes interviewing our clients. So, we chatted with Shawna to gather source materials and capture her brand voice. Then we wrote her site’s home, about, and services pages.

WordPress/Divi Site Design

Our goal with the site design was to reflect Shawna’s welcoming personality and her warm, open approach to life coaching. Shawna’s existing logo and brand photography set the starting place for the design. Using style boards (shown below) allowed us to collaborate with Shawna early in the design process, incorporate her design feedback in a streamlined way, and translate her vision of the site into a reality.

Opt-in Design and Mailing List Setup

We designed a one-page pdf opt-in freebie to match the site style. You can sign up for Shawna’s Happy Ways of Being guide here. In addition, we created a document template in Canva. Now Shawna can use that template to keep her future marketing efforts on-brand. We designed an email campaign header image, styled Shawna’s email template to match her branding, and set up her opt-in welcome sequence in ConvertKit.

About Shawna

Logo Design

We worked with Kristen of Herwitz Law to create a new logo, sub-marks, and brand style to represent her personality. Kristen works with womxn-led, mission-driven small businesses. Herwitz Law is not a typical, traditional law firm. For example, Kristen’s approach to law is transparent, inclusive, and kind.

Squarespace Site Design

While going through the logo design process with us, Kristen decided to engage us to redesign her Squarespace site, too. Click to see the new Herwitz Law website. Our goals with the site redesign: to incorporate her new visual brand and to better showcase all the legal services and products Kristen offers. We provided guidance for her brand photography, which was beautifully shot by Keri Vaca.

Before and After Website Design

Content Strategy

Next, we helped Kristen assess her business goals and organize her site structure and content to guide visitors to her offerings. After that, to ensure alignment with her brand and current business goals, we reviewed and edited all copy. Kristen’s site was optimized for search engines, too.
