Website Strategy & Copywriting
Build your website on a strategic foundation.
To guide visitors to take the next step, a website needs a smart structure and messaging that’s aligned with your goals. But how to get there can feel hazy.
Common questions teams ask:
→ What pages do we need?
→ How should we map out the structure?
→ What’s important to include?
→ How do I sound more welcoming?
→ What can we do to differentiate ourselves?
→ What should we say on our site?
Why Many Websites Don’t Work:
The messaging is not clear.
Without a defined audience and an easy-to-understand message, visitors may not understand the value you provide.
The site is disorganized and chaotic.
If there’s too much crammed into your site or things are in the wrong places, it can be hard for visitors to know what to do next.
The right people were not involved.
Your website is a digital platform for the whole business. Without consulting the right team members, there may be gaps.
The website is not aligned with business goals.
Sometimes a website becomes a dumping ground — rather than laser-focused on producing the most important results.

“WOW – way better than I ever could have asked for.”
Brittany’s thought process, design and organization ideas for the wording, the way everything works on the page — there were so many things I never really even thought about and were very eye-opening to learn!
She was always on time, super organized, and asked LOTS of questions about me and the business. She was able to turn my random, disorganized, too-wordy thoughts into really powerful website material that I am so excited about.”

Website Strategy FAQ
What is website strategy and planning?
Website strategy is about planning and shaping how your website conveys your brand message through user experience. It includes:
- Site architecture and navigation – Deciding what pages to include and how users move between them.
- Page layouts and core content – Mapping out the structure and journey for each page.
- Brand messaging – Defining what ideas are most important to communicate.
- Visuals, tone, and copywriting – Unifying site content with consistent voice and visuals.
In essence, website strategy is about crafting an intentional user journey. The goal is to shape a cohesive, on-brand experience that clearly communicates your value to visitors.
Which deliverables do I need?
We’ll work together to create a plan that makes sense for you. Most clients need foundational work to set their website strategy, and will often choose copywriting support as well. But if you have copywriters on board, I can provide just the strategy or consulting support to help your team with the strategy. Each custom project is structured based on what your organization needs.
Will you write my content?
I’m happy to take on full website copywriting if that fits your needs and budget. We can also explore a split option where I write your main pages and create templates for your team to handle secondary pages.
What if I just want the copywriting?
All copywriting packages include some strategy elements. However, we can pare down on the strategic elements to fit your project scope. Get in touch, and we can work together to select the elements that will provide you with the most value.
How much does this cost?
Since website strategy depends on your goals, website size, and team needs, each package is custom. Ballpark begins around $2,000 for a one-page site and $4,000 for a 5-page site, but can range higher depending on the level of support provided. Schedule a quick call so I can better understand your needs — this will allow me to suggest a tailored approach.
How much do you help with SEO?
SEO is a complex specialty. For best results, I recommend hiring an agency focused specifically on search optimization. However, I can provide SEO-friendly best practices and structure during our website strategy work — we can cover content optimization, URLs, metadata, etc., to set you up for SEO success down the road.
Can I just do a consulting call?
Yes, you can book an a la carte website strategy consulting call if you simply need to ask a few questions and get some clarity. All consulting calls include follow-up email support for two weeks after the call.
Do you do website design?
Good design is a pillar of my approach. Plus, I have an understanding of what goes into an effective user experience. However, I don’t personally design websites. I have a network of experts I refer to for website and brand design. If you need a designer, I can connect you to the best.
