A strategy to support your brand.
At Smash Creative, we lead the industry for custom-designed, uniquely tailored websites.
We offer more than luxury design. We take it a step further to ensure our clients receive a final product that increases the efficiency of their business.
We build exactly what you need and nothing you don’t.Get Started
Thank you so much for creating a site I know will never crash when I share big announcements!
At our core, we help our clients reach success and build profitable businesses.
In order to serve you to the best of our abilities, we only accept a limited number of clients per month.
RACHEL WENT FROM BLOGGER TO NORDSTROM BRAND
Rachel Parcell is a women’s clothing brand specializing in feminine and timeless pieces that will be worn time and time again. The brand was founded in January 2016 by Rachel Parcell, of the blog Pink Peonies and Tan France, of Queer Eye.
“I had a very specific vision and smash was so willing to do whatever it took to make it come to life! I couldn’t be happier with the finished product.”
Getting started on the right foot is essential to our client’s success. We take the time to listen to our client’s pain points, wants, and needs before any designing even start. In doing so, our websites more accurately represent a successful project the first time around, not the second or third.
Once we have our strategy laid out, we work with you to create a design that truly embodies you and your brand.
After we double-check everything together, your site is moved from design into development.
Before launching, we double-check to ensure it is absolutely nothing shy of perfect. Additionally, we educate all of our clients on best practices so that the transition from us to you is seamless.
Let's Work Together
Have any questions? Simply choose a time that works best, and we’ll give you a call to start the process of answering them.
Do I need To Buy A Domain?
If you have one, that’s great! If not, we will help you through that process.
What Platforms do you work with?
We primarily work with WordPress, because it is the leading platform for professional bloggers.
WordPress makes it easy to design, monetize, and grow. If there is another platform that you prefer, we can work with that as well.
Do I need to pay upfront?
We don’t require any scary down payments to get started! We want you to see our work and pay for it as we go.
At the beginning of your project we will identify the budget that we will be working with, and bill you weekly for the hours that were used from the prior week.
We won’t design anything outside of your budget unless you ask for us to, and we won’t bill you for hours that weren’t used.
What makes Smash so special?
With four years of experience working exclusively with bloggers, we have really mastered the niche. But we bring more to the table than just a beautiful design. Our companies’ expertise is deep rooted in business strategy and web development.
Prior to working with bloggers we primarily built sexy software for enterprise companies and large financial institutions. As the saying goes, if you can make it in New York City, you can make it anywhere. At Smash, we have combined our “white glove” experience that we offered to our multi million dollar clients with competitive pricing to fit the budget of any blogger.
With us you can feel confident that you will receive premium service and a premium product- strategized, designed, and developed to achieve all of your blogging goals.
How long will my project take?
From the initial kick off strategy meeting to launching your new blog, the average project takes about 6 weeks to complete. Depending on the design and functionality needs that your blog has, your project can take as little as 4 weeks and up to 8 weeks.
Can we be honest though? We move as fast as you do. If there is a hold up on your end with approvals to move to the next step or delivering content to us, then your project will probably take longer to complete than you or us want it to.
How much does it cost?
We have design and development packages to fit the needs of nearly any budget. Contact us and we will help you choose the best package for you.
How many design iterations will I get?
As many as it will take to land on the design that you love. Prior to any work being done, our lead designer will conduct a strategy meeting with you in order to flesh out all the design and functionality needs your blog has to support your goals.
Our average project typically goes through two rounds of design prior to moving forward to development.
Will my site be mobile responsive?
Absolutely! Mobile responsiveness is included in the price of all design and development packages we offer.
What will be the ROI working with you?
If you are asking this question, you are already thinking like a smart business owner. The blogging space is a competitive one and it is easy to get lost in the noise.
Consumers are demanding quality in exchange for their time and attention. What we bring to the table is a quality platform for you to promote your quality content. We never guarantee success to any of our clients, as that is primarily up to you to create.
That being said, we give you a competitive edge by helping you stand out in the crowd with our custom designs.
How extensive is the strategy that you offer?
Our strategy meeting we conduct prior to designing your site is primarily focused around monetization and marketing. For example, how you would monetize a food blog verses a fashion blog are two different strategies.
On the marketing side, we dive into topics such as: which list is more important – your Instagram followers or your email subscribers?
We take the time to understand your vision and goals so that whatever we design for you supports your monetization and marketing strategy needs. We also offer brand strategy including blog name, logo, style guide, and a media kit at an additional cost.
What will happen after you complete my blog?
Welcome to the family! Your success is our success. Beyond your initial engagement with us, we are here to help whenever you need additional design work or technical support.
We provide maintenance, monitoring, and hosting packages so that you can have complete peace of mind that your blog will always function the way you need it to. Lastly, we provide both free and paid for education and tools so that you can feel confident growing your blog into a business.
