I contacted Sajah for help in setting up the DMARC email authentication and to get my newsletter working optimally. She was very responsive. Quick. Professional and extremely helpful. Without her help, I'd probably still be confused. 🤣Would recommend her services.

This whole experience can be summed with just one word: wonderful! I was having issues with email authentication, so I reached out. I’m so glad I did. The service was fast, efficient, and it really took a load off my mind that not only was the issue being handled, but it was being handled correctly (something I was unable to do myself). I cannot say enough about Sajah’s Design Studio, and I’ll definitely come back for more services when needed!

We will make sure that your WordPress site is always updated.

With WordPress, certain plug-ins and themes need to be updated every so often and if they aren’t, that may leave your site vulnerable to hackers. To good news is that you can do this by yourself because it’s quite easy. You can read this article Update Your WordPress Website, to instruct you on how to do this.

We will not do extensive/structural changes.

We will upload your content: videos, articles, images etc

Just email your files with straight forward instructions and we will do the rest.

We will make sure that your website is always running smoothly.

*(1) hour of site updates a month.

WordPress needs to be updated and so does the plugins.

It’s not complicated to keep your WordPress updated, and yes, the client can do it easily. Ignoring your WordPress and the updates is not a good idea and you will have problems. The Safety Plan is the basic of our WordPress Maintenance Packages.

The Safety Plan is highly recommended because we build amazing websites and we are proud of our work.

We want our websites to run smoothly, therefore we are require the client to purchase a maintenance plan.

*If you do not purchase a maintenance plan, there is no guarantee that if a problem arises, we will have the time to assist you.  

I have my favorite web hosts for WordPress.

  1. SiteGround
  2. WP Engine

Note: Free and Cheap webhosts will give you all sorts of problems.

The 6 default pages for a custom design:

  1. Home
  2. About
  3. Book/Services
  4. Contact
  5. Blog
  6. Privacy Policy

If you are an author, the Service page will be changed to Book page.

Expand your website’s potential with Bonus pages—additional custom pages tailored to your needs. The number of Bonus pages you receive depends on your chosen package.

Customize your author website with our range of Bonus pages, including:

  • Newsletter Page: Engage your readers by offering sign-ups for updates and exclusive content.
  • Read For Free: Provide a sneak peek with free chapters to entice new readers.
  • Audiobooks: Showcase your audiobook collection and offer easy listening access.
  • Store Page: Sell your books and merchandise directly to fans from your own storefront.

Your website package includes 6 default pages, but we’re all about flexibility. If there’s a page you don’t need, like a Blog page, we can swap it out. Here are some alternatives:

  • Newsletter Page: Keep readers in the loop with a dedicated sign-up page for updates and exclusive content.
  • Read For Free: Draw in readers by offering free chapters on a special preview page.
  • Audiobooks: Highlight your audiobook range on a page designed for easy audio access.

A Service page is where your business will be listed. Whether its a product page or if you are booking clients.

A Portfolio page is where visitors can see either your reviews or the representation of work/projects that you have created. This page is also where you can showcase your skills and experiences.

When your time expires, and if you would like us to continue to manage your website purchase a maintenance plan.

A project can take anywhere from 1 to 4 months to complete, however sometimes a project can be finished sooner without rushing any of the steps.

Reasons to why a project can be finished before the due date:

  1. The client’s requirements are not overly complicated.
  2. They are communicative and responds to emails.
  3. The client knows exactly what they want and how they want it.
  4. Everything that is requested is emailed/uploaded in a timely fashion.

Note: If anything on the client’s end prohibits Sajah’s Design Studio from completing this project on schedule, there will be a 25% reopening Fee.

Get in touch to start creating a website as memorable as your stories!

The term ‘Optional Individual Pages’ refers to the flexibility to create dedicated pages for each of your books, rather than listing them all on a single page. In a standard website design, all your books might be showcased collectively on a Book page, with links directing visitors to Amazon or another universal book link to make a purchase.

However, with certain Author Packages that include ‘Optional Individual Pages,’ your website structure allows for a more expansive presentation. You can have:

  • Series Pages: Dedicated pages for each of your book series, making it easier for visitors to find what they’re looking for.
  • Spotlight Book Pages: When visitors click on a book cover, instead of being redirected away from your site, they’ll be taken to a personalized page on your own website that spotlights that particular book.

On these Spotlight Book Pages, you can include:

  • Buy Links: Direct links for purchasing the book.
  • Summary: An engaging overview of the book’s plot.
  • Reviews: Testimonials and praise from readers and critics.
  • Spotify Playlist

This approach not only provides a richer experience for your visitors but also keeps them engaged on your website, potentially increasing their interest in your other works.

No, Zoom calls are not mandatory.

GDPR compliant is nothing complicated. It just means that when a potential reader visits your website, a disclaimer will pop up that says:

We use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. If you continue to use this site, we will assume that you are happy with it. (It doesn’t have to be those exact words, but something similar).

This is mandatory to get the readers to acknowledge that the owner uses cookies on their website. Essentially, websites track the traffic that comes in and out and visitors need to know that they are being lightly tracked. It’s a common practise with almost any website.

When we receive payment, you will receive an email with a Google link. You will deposit all your content/information, into that folder within the timeframe provided in the email. If you do not provide us with all the content within the requested timeframe, that will push our deadline date back. In that case, the client was responsible to hand in everything on time and didn’t. Additional fees may apply.

In the case that the client uploaded all information/content on time, and we won’t be able to meet the deadline, this will be the fault of Sajah’s Design Studio. The client will not be penalized.

We will make sure that your WordPress site is updated.

With WordPress, certain plug-ins and themes need to be updated every so often and if they aren’t, that may leave your site vulnerable to hackers. To good news is that you can do this by yourself because it’s quite easy. You can read this article Update Your WordPress Website, to instruct you on how to do this.

With Site Maintenance, I will not upload your content: video, images, articles etc

I will not do extensive/structural changes.

Let’s be honest, you may have other priorities that you would rather focus on and don’t have the time and patience to deal with your WordPress website.

That’s okay.

No judgement.

I’m here to help you and lessen the burden of running a business.

* Any work being completed on your site will not exceed one hour a month.

Do you want to upgrade your website to the next level? Perfect!
