What Our Past Students Say

Previously I used a different platform for my website but knew I needed to change to WordPress for more options and better SEO. 

With the notes provided I found it easy. I am more comfortable now using both the back end and front end for generating new pages, images etc. and adding or updating information. I always find Gaye very helpful and approachable to steer me in the right direction and answer any questions.

I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to set up their own website but needing someone in the background as support.

Kathy Stratford, Holistic Health Practitioner

I had created a website on my own before but having learned with Gaye guiding me has been next level. Understanding the background work and realising what is required for Google to recognise your site in a search has been very eye-opening.

Most importantly, Gaye is very knowledgeable, supportive and patient and gives you freedom to learn for yourself, if that’s what you choose.

Deanne Moulden, Flourish with Deanne

The Savvy DIY Website Program enabled me to produce a website that I am thrilled with! The lessons were fabulous, very thorough and detailed. I particularly loved having the video as well as I am much more of a visual learner. I learnt something from all of the lessons.

Any time I got “stuck” it was usually from something I had done or didn’t do, and at these moments Gaye was always at the end of the phone or messenger and so very patient and helpful. I am so glad I signed up for it. Thank you so much for your patience with me!

Introducing…

A bit about me

Why I’m qualified to help you build the website of your dreams

Hi, I’m Gaye Nilson, and I’ve been where you are now

I know how hard it is to be in business, study, and raise a family.

Simply Savvy Web was born after 20-odd years working within the IT industry when I decided I wanted to build a future for myself rather than be stuck in a job counting down the days to retirement! Prior to this I owned a beauty salon in the Pilbara, and after winning a computer in a raffle I was so excited to learn how to use it I enrolled at TAFE and before long moved on to Murdoch Uni to gain my BSc degree in Computer Science. All while raising a family as well.

With no real plan, not a lot of business sense, and no money, I resigned from my stable local government job and jumped into my own business in 2015. I discovered I had a flair for web design and a passion for helping others grow their business too, using online technology.

Watching my students learn how to conquer their tech phobias and gain the confidence to build and launch their own WordPress website, keeps me in my happy space.

What Our Past Clients Say

Simple, clear instructions

Even though my website has only been up and running for 3 weeks, I have already had an increase in enquiries and bookings. I am a complete technophobe and I was really worried about the whole process. However, Gaye made the journey easy from start to finish.

Gaye was able to suggest content ideas that I have not considered and she presented me with a number of fabulous suggestions for the look.

In the end, I had two zoom sessions with her and Gaye came up with a website that I am really proud of. Thank you so much Gaye.

Peta Philp, Peel Psychological Services

Knowledgeable and creative

Gaye is totally professional in her web design and follow up maintenance. We have received many compliments about our website designed by Gaye Nilson. You have knowledge and almost second sight as you know what is needed before we have even thought of it! Like every efficient person, you are like a swan; all grace on the water with effortless gliding.

Being a charity it has been very helpful to be able to take donations online and also to sell tickets to our fundraising events. Something that I would not have imagined we could do. 

Kaye Seeber, WA Mums Cottage Inc

Practical understanding

Met all of my objectives for the new website, but it is the level of follow-up support that has been most impressive. I would definitely recommend utilising Simply Savvy.

Gaye was very good at taking the time to understand my requirements and delivered a website that looks great and is proving a good resource to my customers, saving me considerable work.

It’s clear that my work only scratched the surface of Gaye’s capabilities, so whenever I want to improve the online presence of my business my first call will be to Simply Savvy.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Savvy Website Jumpstart?

The Jumpstart program is a 4 step self-paced online course that gives you the skills and support you need to create a website that reflects the real you and will increase your profits.

It’s aimed at entrepreneurs, small business owners and anyone who wants to do things the right way, the first time.

How long will it take me to complete my new website?

The program is self-paced so that you can take as little or as long as you need, depending on the time you have to invest. 

As a rough guide it should take around 6 to 8 weeks from start to launch. The more time you can dedicate to it, the better. Creating your content will generally take the most time.

How much time will it take me each week to complete the program?

This depends very much on each individual, but as a rough guide, around three to four hours per week should be sufficient to put all the foundations in place, although you may need additional time to complete writing your content.

What happens after I sign up?

Once you’ve completed the check-out process, you will be redirected to the Savvy Website Jumpstart membership page. Please watch the introductory video first, make sure you join the private Facebook community, then the first modules will be waiting for you to jump right in!

You will also receive an email confirming your enrolment, and you’ll get a further email within the next couple of days with the details of what we need to set up your Starter Kit.

If you have any questions at all please get in touch either via the Facebook group or the contact form on the Contact page on the website.

I really could just do this myself, couldn’t I?

Yes you sure could! You just need to arrange hosting, learn how to use cPanel (the hosting backend admin area), install and configure WordPress, then purchase, install and configure your theme and plugins, then create your pages from scratch, etc, etc.

If you’d like to discuss other options I am also available for a coaching session via Zoom. Please get in touch if you’d like further details.

What payment options do you provide for clients?

We offer a simple check-out process using Stripe as our payment gateway. Direct deposit is also available if preferred, please get in touch if you would like to request this option.

The program has an up-front payment option as well as a payment plan with 3 instalments.

How can I contact you if I need help?

The program includes access to a private Facebook group where you can get all your questions answered plus ongoing tips and tutorials. This group allows others to share ideas and feedback and help out as well.

I can also be contacted via email, and I will do my best to get back to you within 24 hours on weekdays, either with a direct answer or with a short screencast video.

Do I need to buy a domain?

Yes, you will need to purchase a domain – I recommend Conetix for domains, as they have good pricing, an easy-to-use console for domain management, and excellent customer service.

A domain should cost you around $20 per year.

Do I need to arrange hosting and install WordPress?

WordPress is installed and configured as part of the initial starter site included in the program.

Your starter kit includes the essential WordPress plugins your need for security, spam filtering, backup and performance.

The program includes 12 months hosting with an Australian hosting provider, and a free SSL certificate is also included. After the first year, hosting can be renewed for $220 per year or $20 per month. You are free to move your site to another host if you so wish.

What sort of things can I add to my website?

WordPress allows you to add just about anything to your website. Here are just some things you can easily add:

  • Social media links and sharing buttons
  • Location maps (Google Maps)
  • Contact forms
  • Email opt-in forms
  • Sliders for images and posts
  • Image gallery
  • Click to call phone number
  • Embed YouTube or Vimeo videos

 

I’m really not tech-savvy - will I be able to do this?

All of the really techie stuff is taken care of for you – hosting, installation and configuration of WordPress, plus your 12-page starter site with the Divi theme installed.

The Divi theme has a simple drag and drop builder, which also includes a ‘visual’ front-end builder.

The tutorials and guides give you step-by-step instructions that will guide you through each step of customising the starter site with your own branding and content. These include video lessons, workbooks and checklists. 

What if I already have a website?

If you already have a website and you wish to keep it up and running until your new site is ready to launch, I can arrange a ‘staging’ area for you to complete the program, and then help you to redirect your domain to the new site when you’re ready to launch.

How do I maintain my website after I’ve completed the program?

You’ll have access to a bonus lesson which will give you all the information and confidence you need to ensure your site is safe and secure going forward.

I really could just do this myself, couldn’t I?

Yes you sure could! You just need to arrange hosting, learn how to use cPanel (the hosting backend admin area), install and configure WordPress, then purchase, install and configure your theme and plugins, then create your pages from scratch, etc, etc.

If you’d like to discuss other options I am also available for a coaching session via Zoom. Please get in touch if you’d like further details.

What if I find it all just too hard?

If you’re really struggling to find the time or the patience to get it all done and would just like someone to get it done and dusted for you, this can be arranged for a reasonable fee, less the price you’ve already paid for the program.

You’ll need to provide all of your content, including text and images, for all sections of the website. Please get in touch for further details.
