How to Create a Website That Connects


You’ve perhaps selected a template, or even started your website. You’ve perhaps have a home page and a contact page to start, yet you aren't sure what to do next.

You’re concerned about not connecting with your audience, and wasting your time (and money).

You’re worried about picking the right web designers, the right price, or DIY'ing it better.

You’re afraid of not effectively connecting with your community on your website.

Yet you are more afraid of not getting your story, your experience, and your brand out there, so you hang on through the process.

You are still reading because… because deep down inside you know there has to be a better way to create a website that truly connects (vibes, visuals, and value).

 

What if…

What if you created a website with clarity to truly connect, create and cultivate?

What if you were able to create the feeling you want people to feel?

What if you were clear on your visuals, vibes, and value?

What if you focused on value and relationship first?

What if you increased your know, like, and trust factor?

What if you were crystal clear on your flow from foundation to growth?

Imagine the return…Imagine the results…

It is possible to create it.

How do I know?

Because I took ALL the education and experience from industries and brands served, and we did just that. I believe in turning struggle into strength and service.

How did we do it? I figured it was time to share it to serve others.

 


Here, you will learn how to set up the

vibes, visuals, and value

for a website that connects.

 

I’m going to say, right up front, this article will involve you to take time to get clear on your story and and take action!

I will equip you how to do this step by step so you feel equipped and empowered.

This will save you a ton of time, heartache, and money!

 

Background

I completely get it! I've created over 20 websites since 2000 including building, revising, or advising in over 7 industries. This includes this one and the www.katrinajulia.com site as well.

When I first started creating websites in 2000, websites were different and much more difficult back then - you HAD to KNOW HTML or Flash. There was no Wix or Kajabi or easy templates or tools!

However, I hadn't been exposed to the art and science of visuals, vibes and value to create a website that connects until I went full-time as an entrepreneur in 2011.

When I started creating this site, the Katrina Julia site, along with the integration of social media plus our experiences, ambassadors, and fundraisers - This took me back to college, as well as the industries I had served in from education to retail to energy and several in between.

It all took me back to the fundamentals of vibes, visuals, and value.
