Appealing Websites You Can Update On Your Own

That’s right – once you’ve approved the final version of your website, I don’t want any more of your money.

If you’ve never used WordPress, a personally-guided WordPress tutorial is included. This reasonable approach is why my available slots for web design are quickly taken. I only do a few at a time to ensure I give each project the focus it needs to be successful.

Keep it simple, leave it to me.

After experience with other tools, I work exclusively with the WordPress content management system. With this tool, I complete template customizations for individuals, small businesses, and bloggers. Typical start to finish web projects cost less than $1000.

My Process


  • 1. Idea Generation

    I guide you through a series of questions to nail down the design and function of your website.

  • 2. Template Review

    Based on our discussion, I’ll send you several theme options to choose from.

  • 3. Implementation

    Once we decide on a theme, I’ll install and customize it according to our previous discussions, then send it your way for review.

  • 4. Final Edits

    After looking through the first version of your website, we’ll work together to customize it exactly how you want.


The whole process takes about a month. I aim to turn things around as fast as possible for clients anxious to get online.

  • Maddy created a new website for our organization (Surety Association of Illinois) with a quick turnaround time. She was easy to work with and proposed a solution that empowered us to make future changes on our own via wordpress. Maddy walked us through this system and we are glad to have had her expertise in this process.

  • I initially found Maddy through LinkedIn while in the process of firming up the details of my venture, Strong Suit. The expertise portrayed through her website and blog pushed me to get in touch. Maddy was easy to schedule a meeting with, and came completely prepared for the meeting after taking the time to do some research on my current initiatives. After giving suggestions backed by marketing best practices, I left the meeting feeling energized. After implementing Maddy's suggestions, my SEO worked exactly as I had hoped. I would definitely work with her again, and have even referred her some business from my own network.

  • Madeline has been a great addition to my blogging staff. She produces high quality written content with minimal guidance and always within the time frame I need it. Not only is Madeline knowledgeable on a variety of digital marketing topics, but she is constantly suggesting new ideas to extend blog reach. Great communicator and definite team player. Has a witty sense of humor, too. Highly recommended.
