Affordable Squarespace Websites

 

Squarespace is advertised as the “all-in-one platform to build a beautiful online presence.” It is! But, All-in-one” doesn’t mean “easy-to-use.”

After hours of tinkering, you’ve probable settled for something blah. This is where I like to help. I’ll make the website you picture in your head a reality.

 
 

 
 

Felt Me Now

“When Eli and I first connected, I had no idea what genius was behind those big, black glasses he wears. He blew my socks off with his Squarespace skills, and gave my creative business a huge (and much needed) facelift. I’ve tried working with other website developers, but never understood why everything took so long and was so overpriced. I always felt like I was burdening them with my ideas even though I was paying them! Eli jumped right in without ever being pushy. He helped me prioritize, was open to my ideas and he was always up for collaboration. Excited, he had my website tweaked before I had even signed on to work with him.

His rates are extremely affordable, and the speed at which he works is truly impressive. Fabulous! I’m someone who likes to tackle things in batches, and it can be a lot of little details to cover all at once. Eli remained calm yet playful as we crossed things off the list. If you’re looking for a friendly and efficient website designer, hire Eli.”

“I needed someone to help me do everything from designing my website and online store, to helping me navigate the art world and promote my work. I wish I would have made the investment in Eli sooner. His positive insight and ambition have made all the difference in moving my career forward.”

— Chris Weller, Artist Specializing in Hyper-Realistic Charcoal Drawings

 
 

 

“Eli guided me through the creation of my business. He took the reins everywhere I fell short so that I was able to focus completely on what I really love. I felt at ease, strong, empowered, and never judged. During our initial phone call, as I was floundering about, he was already formulating ideas. Within hours, we had designed a logo, my business cards were ordered and a fully functioning beautiful website featuring bang-on copy was about to go live; a process that would have taken me many months and which I though would cost me thousands of dollars (not the case).”

“Fate brought Eli and I together from over 600 miles apart, and I could have never imagined how he would impact every aspect of my life. His beautiful soul and genuine support of those around him is impossible to measure. Eli gave me the courage to delve into my love of photography and my desire to write. Both my passions have now been published. Welcoming Eli into your life is the best decision you’ll ever make. I can think of no one better equipped to take a mound of clay and sculpt it into something spectacular!”

“Eli’s design sense is universally aesthetically pleasing and his eye for design is current and desirable. I needed someone to teach me how to present my work with elegance, class and while also being approachable. I don't need anyone to tell me how brilliant Eli is. I knew it the first time I saw his work. My recommendation? Hire him.”

— Nancy Aronie, Author, NPR Commentator and Harvard Teacher

 
 

 

“From the first moments of contact with Eli, I knew I was in extremely capable hands. He is exceptionally efficient and effective, professional and fun! He is brilliant and energetic, and his work is deeply soulful. You will be in good hands with Eli Dagostino!”

working with me

 

A website is an investment in yourself and your business, and frankly, there’re no two better things in this world to invest in.

I believe the whole shebang shouldn’t cost more than $1,000.

 
 

1

FREE

Consultation

Let’s make sure we’re a good fit. I want this experience to be easy, fun and inspiring for you. I also want to build your website within your budget and timeframe. That is really important to me.

Bring your creativity to the table. You’ll learn how your website will be so much more than a boring bit of code.

≈$250/yr.

Hosting & domain

There’re two things every website needs in order to be visible on the internet. One is “hosting” and the other is a “domain”. Hosting is simply a parking space on the internet for your website to sit in so that it can be accessible to the world. A domain is the name of your website which someone would type into their search bar (for example, “www.yournamehere.com”).

These annual fees are unavoidable and will be charged regardless of what platform you decide to build your website (Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, etc.). Both your hosting and domain can be purchased through Squarespace, and I will make sure that you are setup and ready to go. It’s a “set it and forget it” kind of thing.

$250: Investment

$50/hr.: Design/build

I’ve been building websites for almost 10 years, and because Squarespace’s product is affordable on its own, I’ve made my services cost as little as possible to match.

Whether you’re looking for a single-page website or something more complex, to start, I require a $250 investment. After your investment, my time costs $50/hr.

I believe the whole shebang shouldn’t cost more than $1,000.

$35/hr.

Future changes

I hate when web designers leave their clients high-and-dry with a website they don’t know how to work. So, after I design and build your website, you’ll have access to one of my Squarespace experts. They will be available to help you make any changes you may need down the line.
