Everything You Need to Know For Your Next Blog Design

The Ultimate Guide to Your Next Blog Design

I’ve done over 300 blog designs in the last three years (a combination of custom and blog shop package orders). I see what issues customers face, and this blog aims to provide solutions.

As I designer, my goal is to be clear and transparent. With each project, I take their feedback and try to improve the process. I’d like to think that most of my customers have a great experience.

The blog design process is not equal. A custom blog design from one designer might not be considered custom from another. Each designer works differently. Unfortunately, there are a lot of frauds out there. I hear the horror stories all the time from my customers.

Being informed is the easiest way to avoid horror stories, so I’ve rounded up some of the best blog design posts to help you prepare for your next design.

Blog Design Process + Faqs

I’ve setup my process so that I create the best possible designs for my customers at the certain price range. For example, custom designs have a certain process compared to blog shop orders. Blog shop orders are setup in a way that customers quickly receive a beautiful and professional design.

Blog Design Features

I discuss what customizations and features are best for one’s brand for my custom design and blog shop customers. With my blog shop customers, since they are often working within a budget, we start with the Rose Package. This package sets them up with the branding base, theme, setup, and email integration to grow their brand. As their brand grows, we develop a plan of what would be the most beneficial customizations. If they are part of my affiliate program, they can use their affiliate earnings as credits towards the shop!

Free Tips for Improving Your Blog Design

Don’t be fooled! You can significantly improve your blog design without redesigning! In fact, a redesign might not resolve some of the critical issues with your brand. Before you redesign, your content should be cleaned up and optimized.

How to Have a Successful Launch

If you do a launch right, you can easily see your website traffic that day! Most people don’t follow my advice for a launch, then they are left with a slightly above average traffic day. You spend all that time working on your blog design, you might as well finish strong! Never rush a launch, and never announce a launch until you have everything lined up!
