Just starting out?

Need a website on a budget?

Then my website packages are the best solution for you.

Starting at just $600, the Complete Website Package will get you a 5-page website with the off the shelf WordPress theme of your choice and security features.

I install WordPress, the child theme of your choice, add the content you provide (including up to 20 photos or images), and configure the site to help the search engines, like Google™ and Bing™, find you.

I’LL WALK YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS.

So what will you do with your 5 pages?

A typical website will include:

  • Home
  • About Me
  • Services Offered
  • Directions/Contact Us
  • News/Blog

BUT YOU CAN HAVE ANYTHING YOU WANT.

Do you have more than 5 pages? That’s great! The cost for each additional page is very reasonable.
Do you have a photo portfolio? I can add more photos for a small fee.
Do you have a contact form or email newsletter service? I’ll get those added, too.

Do you want to save money by adding your own content?  The Starter package is for you.

 

Packages can be customized to your business needs and website goals.

Testimonials

Brought my website to the 21st Century

For years I had a very outdated website that looked like something out of the 90s (because it was!). I didn’t have the budget to pay someone thousands of dollars to redesign it but at the same time I lack the skill the do it myself. Jessica created a modern system with a basic template and the color scheme that I liked that allowed me to easily enter the text and pictures that I wanted without having to know any complicated computer code. I am now able to easily update my website without any hassle or special skills. This was a great money saver and it’s a good option for the person that likes to DIY without learning computer programming.

Good website for new business

I recently started a new business and desperately needed a web presence but couldn’t afford much to get it done. Jessica’s Starter package was the perfect solution. She took care of the technical programming/design component while I was able to save money taking care of adding the text.

The video tutorials were extremely helpful and she was easily accessible via email to help me along the way. I am very happy with the value and the product that I received.

SO NEW

I am JUST old enough to have missed any programming or any ONLINE training whatsoever in my formal education. I went straight from high school on to plow through three associate degrees in business and accounting while building my career as a stylist.
Now I find myself mid-30s, a mom of three and coddling this new TEENY TINY little baby business and I needed a little kick-off with all things website. Virtualbookkeeper has been AMAZING! The level of communication in a way that I can understand and learn as I go along has been just perfect. Everyone else I chatted with used all these terms that I didn’t understand and left me more confused. Virtualbookkeeper used the terms with explanation, allowing me to learn as I go. And the speed of things, WOW! I recommend this company to anyone looking to get a new website or maintain and better an existing one.
