Custom Wordpress Blog
When you're thinking through your new blog design, you want to stand out from the busy crowd. Let's make you a blog that you can be proud to show off because it's a website that is built exclusively for you!
Does this sound like you?
Decides to Start a Blog
Follows a YouTube video to set up first Wordpress blog
Gets incredibly confused and frustrated
Finally finish (with or without help) but then realize that your blog looks a little cheap and not professional
You wonder, "is this good enough to make it?"
If this is you, don't worry – you're not alone (fun fact, this was where my wife found herself, too!). Let me get your blog up to spec so that you can continue to grow your following and maybe make a living with your blog!
Let’s Get You Found and Make You Proud
I don't need to tell you this, but I will anyways. If you have a blog, it needs to be found, and also, it needs to be READY to be found. Sure, you'll be creating Pinterest posts, Instagram reels, TikTok videos, and Facebook posts, but all of that effort may be in vain if you don't have a beautiful blog for people to visit.
So, let's make you a blog that you can be proud to show off!
Many companies and agencies that serve the blogging community build amazing, functional blogs, but what I would love to do is build a custom blog website, just for you!
Here’s a Peak Into the Process
Strategize & Plan
Figure out the goals of your blog (standard blog, home for your entire brand, store front for your website, etc)
Figure out what types of blogs you like and don't like; figure out what type of functionality you need and don't need.
Plan for the future of your blog!
Design Something Special
Create wireframe and visual mockups of your blog design so that you know exactly what your blog will look like once live.
Create custom elements for your blog that you'd like to have implemented.
Develop For Launch
Develop your new blog on a private server (or staging site if your host allows) so that you don't need to worry about down time.
Set up needed integrations such as email capture, auto scheduler, and anything else required for us to reach your goals.
Make sure we are passing core web vitals!
Maintain & Protect
Keep me in your corner to update, modify, or change the website.
Continually monitor for security threats and issues on the website to ensure minimal downtime and hacks.
Ad networks are always changing their ads and structures. I make sure we are passing core web vitals, but sometimes, even though everything is built perfectly, you can still fail. I strive to make sure we are passing every month and making tweaks for optimal performance.
Grow & Be Found
I work with many bloggers as more than just "their website guy." I can help you with creating your email list, thinking through new strategies for the website, adding new pages and content for the website, etc.
Rather than just text me when you need a quick fix, I become a close partner to dream for the future.
Whether you are wanting to start a brand new blog or you already have a blog that just need a refresh, I am here to serve you! I want to see you succeed and in order to do that, I believe that we need to build something that is just for you . . . not a template that was made for the masses.
Services for Bloggers
New Blog Only
Standard Pages included: Home, about, contact, custom post layouts, and custom category layouts. You can also have pages such as "Work with Me" or "Media Kit."
Custom tailored design based on your needs
Proven email capture plug-in that allows for in line, slide in, and pop-ups to grow your email list. The plug-in connects with most email service platforms . . . besides FloDesk, but that's okay! FloDesk has some nice designs already!
Password protected pages where people have to sign-up for your email newsletter to get the password.
Blog to Brand
There are many blogs out there, but you don't have JUST a blog – you're a brand. I've been specializing in helping turn blogs into full fledge websites so that when people arrive on your blog, they immediately recognize that you are an expert in your niche.
As a part of this process, we develop your messaging and target audience and work together to create a website that is designed to grow your audience.
Granted, this process takes more work on both of our ends, but the beautiful part of this process is that we do this together, even down to creating quiz funnels!
What People Are Saying
I hired Marc Hyde Creative to design and engineer my new website last year and it was the best decision ever. I'm now on his maintenance plan and I sleep better at night knowing my website is taken care of by a real professional. Not only was Marc incredibly efficient, knowledgeable, communicative, creative, and flexible, he's also a wonderful person to work with and I really value his work ethic. He helped me build my site from the ground up with every custom feature I wanted (and I didn't go bankrupt in the process)! If you're looking for the best person to help you with similar projects this year, stop your search immediately and just thank me later.
Marc did an amazing redesign of my blog! It's now a professional and beautiful website that I'm excited to share with my followers, as well as brands interested in working with me. Thank you Marc!
Marc was incredible when I launched my second blog! Not only did he NAIL the design, but he was super fast, didn't complain about me nitpicking every detail, and my site is super fast! Absolutely love his work! Highly recommended!
Everyone loves the site and how easy it is to navigate. I'm ranking for several keywords already with just the few posts I have.
Marc was wonderful to work with! He created a web design for my existing site. He took it from boring to beautiful! He also kept SEO and user experience in mind when designing the site. Highly recommend!
