You know what your community is really like. But all a new visitor can see is your website.
Do they see a site that is:
On a mobile phone, is the site even usable?
They might wonder whether your community still exists.
How hard is it to contact you? To give a donation?
I’ve been making websites for over ten years, with a special focus on religious communities, non-profits, and small businesses. Believe me, websites can be hard. I’ve heard it all:
On a personal note, I'm an active Catholic. I'm a graduate of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, and my wife Beth and I have been blessed with several amazing children. It's my honor to help your community share your work with the world.
Here are examples of color schemes and backgrounds from other sites I’ve made.
(Which is probably how your next sister will see it first.)
Monastic Sites run on WordPress, the web software that millions of other “non-techies” have learned to use and love.
You’ll be able to review the site and ask for changes before it goes live.
You may not like the look of your current site, but still want the content on your current pages. We’ll get them safely to your new site. And they’ll all be laid out with the beautiful new look.
(Up to 100 pages at no extra cost. Need more? No problem at all, just contact me below.)
Support via phone, email or even online chat — your choice.
Especially when you consider all these benefits:
With all this, your new website would be a great bargain even for a one-time setup fee of $4,000.
But I'm happy to offer you all this value at a much lower cost.
Because with all my experience, I can get your website made with serious efficiency.
And I know from experience that working with religious is an absolute delight.
So we can get you a new, lovely website ready to go in a week ...
And $99/year for hosting and security.
*You'll also continue your current "domain registration" to keep your web address (like wineskinwebsites.com), but that should only cost $15 or less per year.
Because I give each site my personal attention and guarantee a 5-day turnaround, I can only take on a few sites at a time. If applications are currently closed, there may be a lengthy wait.
Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll reply within one business day. Thanks so much for reaching out! A website is a big investment of both money and time, and I’m happy to discuss the details with no commitment for you to buy.
You can also contact me if you think you might need extra features not listed here. I’d be delighted to design you a custom package.
