PROFESSIONAL PACKAGES

Consider codepuffin your one-stop-shop for all things web.  From domain purchase, hosting and website building to maintenance, blog writing and even Mailchimp management!

custom websites

Every website I make is completely custom built.  That means that you get a website created just for you and perfectly suited to your business.  You won’t see reused templates and generic looking websites here.

maintenance packages

don't stress

Work on your business, instead of in it.  Let me take some stress off your shoulders and manage the updates, backups and security of your site.

I can even write and schedule blog posts for you!

It is important to keep your site updated to keep it secure and stop hackers.  Regular backups are especially important to ecommerce sites to ensure that you don’t lose any valuable order info.

Maintenance packages are only available on sites that I have made.

Your website and emails need a home on the internet – that is their hosting server.  Hosting is paid yearly in advance, so it’s nice and easy.

If you already have a domain and want to move over to codepuffin, then a once-off domain transfer fee will apply.

  • I'm waist deep in a fancy rebrand.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So I've been avoiding posting on socials because all I want to do is post using my new brand style and using my photo shoot pics. But I have to wait until it's all ready for launch! (All the crying face emojis.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Every time I open Planoly and look at the gorgeous grid I made using stock pictures interspersed with some headshots of me and mockups of my work I feel so uninspired and just close the app.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But I gotsta post. So here is a pretty stock pic for your viewing pleasure.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With my new refined direction and business plan, my brand will be more polished and "bespoke" - I know that word is out of favour now, but I'm too tired to think of a synonym. I will only be using images across marketing channels that have been taken by photographers specially for me, of me and my shit.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Keep your eyes peeled for the shiny new codepuffin.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Did you know? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That I have a little stone collection. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love picking up pebbles and stones from places I visit.  When you visit a place the landscape looks different with different vegetation and animals and climate. But you can't take those things with you. You can take a stone with you though.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of the places that I still want to collect some stones from is the Barbeton area of Mpumalanga (in South Africa for those of you not from around here).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I used to live around there and it's the place that I was born. So there is a strange sense of wanting to go back.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Barbeton Greenstone belt has some of the oldest exposed rock in the world.  And the rock contains traces of some of the oldest life on earth.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How amazing is that?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have a few chunks of rock collected from the Swaziland side of those mountains.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of my favourite stones was given to me by a dear friend who picked it up from the foothills of the Himalayan mountains.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ok enough nerding out over geology. Back to the regularly scheduled programming of web development stuff.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

.
I enjoy crochet and knitting. .
For the first year of my business I had no life outside of work. I was constantly working on and in my business and I didn't make time for any rest or relaxation.
.
For that first year I just worked and worked and worked. I worr all thr hats and did ot all myself. And it obviously led to burn out.
.
So now I have weekends to myself. Mostly.
.
And I make time to practice my hobbies.
.
I'm currently crocheting a scarf.
.
Don't forget to schedule in time for yourself on this journey of being a badass #girlboss!
.
What is your hobby that helps you to unwind?

  • I honestly love making websites. And developing inbound marketing strategies are fun too.
.
So I'm working towards an end goal of spending more of my time making websites and less of my time doing other stuff like bookkeeping, emails, chasing clients for content and doing my taxes.
.
To achieve this I'm developing systems and putting processes in place to help me reduce the poop stuff I don't like. I'm outsourcing where I can. And I'm defining my target market.
.
What's your favourite and worst task you have to do in your business?

  • A lovely site for a #femmeprenuer in the US. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Designed by the incredible Kim from @rubyandswallow.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This was such a fun project to work on because the design challenged me a bit with its overlapping, but precise elements that needed to line up well and be translated into tablet and mobile effectively. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's just the best to see beautiful designs come to life on the internet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And collaborating with talented brand designers is my favourite!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's nothing quite like working to build a website for a business that has just had a fresh injection of clarity from the branding process with a professional brand designer or strategist.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • WEEK 34
.
It's officially the 34th week of the year.
.
You've still got 18 weeks left of 2019 to achieve some goals.
.
What was one of your goals for this year? Have you achieved it yet? .
One of my personal goals was to read 3 books of fiction. That's right. Just three. .
I used to read books voraciously, but now I read business articles and marketing stuff and web development things instead. I wanted to challenge myself, but keep it totally achievable, so I set the number to three.
.
I have read one whole book of fiction so far this year. But I'm not stressed because I still have 18 weeks left of the year to achieve that goal.
.
What goal are you going reach in these next 18 weeks of 2019?  Tell me in the comments and let's help keep each other accountable.

  • ATTENTION SERVICE BASED BUSINESSES⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Is your contact form a frigid wasteland?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So you have a shiny new website and you eagerly open your emails each morning only to find that there are zero new leads from your contact form. 👩‍💻 ☠ 😵 😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here's what you need to check and how you can improve:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1.  Check analytics to see if people are visiting your site and if they are making it to your contact form. (If you don't have Google analytics on your site then get it.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2.  Why aren't people making it to your contact form? Is it too many steps away? Consider putting forms on more pages to make it easier for visitors to get to. And don't forget those CTAs (calls to action) to get people to move around your site the way you want them to.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3.  Is your form too complicated? You want to qualify your leads and get more than just their name and email address, but are you asking too much? People are scared off by forms that look too long and require too much work to fill out. Really think about each and every field that you include on your form (or forms).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4.  Are people even making it to your site?  Remember that you need to drive traffic to your shiny new website.  Send people there because that's where you can have their undivided attention and get them to contact you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5.  Consider tracking visitors with a heatmap plugin. Analytics will tell you where your visitors are coming from and which pages they are visiting, but a heat map will tell you what they are doing on each page. Then you can see if they are trying to click on things that aren't clickable or if they aren't making it far enough down your home page to even get to your contact CTA.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Now go out there and get those leads! 👩‍💻 🎉 🔥 📄 💵💶💵⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
