Websites


I wanted to create an e-commerce site and gallery for my new jewelry design company and hoped to do it myself using Squarespace. I saw the commercials and was convinced, being very web savvy, that I could do it myself…not so easy! Frustrated, I searched for a Squarespace expert in Sante Fe and found Alex at Narrative Media.

Wow! Alex took my information and photographs and quickly created a beautiful and functional web site, for a budget friendly price. He then trained me in about an hour, and now I quickly make additions and changes with ease.

Many people have complimented me on the beauty of my site. I am now selling through the site and also using it as a ‘gallery’ to promote my work to art galleries and retail boutiques. I highly recommend the team at Narrative Media!

Standard Website

Need your first website? Or is your current website old enough to drive (or does it look like it)? Then a Standard Website from Narrative Media is the perfect solution.

We build using Squarespace, the easiest and most straightforward way to create a website. Why? Because it allows us to build your website quickly and it empowers you to maintain, update, and edit your website after it launches.

What does the Standard Website include? You get all the main sections that a website needs to tell your story and connect with your clients and audience. Also included is personal training so you can better understand and manage your website. See the included sections/pages below.

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU

The Standard Website is super simple but there's a few assumptions:

  • You have a domain (URL)
    This is your website address, such as "yourbusiness.com". We also check that your domain registrar allows us to make the changes necessary to link up with your new Squarespace website.
  • You have a standard email setup
    If you're using Gmail or some other major email provider than you're good to go. The only issue is if your email is provided by your domain registrar and you're using a boutique outfit or smaller company, then sometimes it can cause issues.
  • You have all of your content
    We're looking for: your logo, well-designed graphics, punchy copy/text, engaging photos, and powerful videos. Don't have all of this stuff (or any of it)? Well, the great thing is that Narrative Media is a one-stop shop and we can create literally all of that for you. *just understand that costs extra*

    We get together to discuss your project and collect all of the content that will go into your new website.

  4. Technical transition to new website - 1 week
