.01
No More Tedious back and Forth

We craft a polished, marketing-focused Squarespace website for you using best practices in a single day—thanks to a signature planning and preparation process. Our goal? To make the website process feel like it’s simply magic!

All you have to do is prepare your content with guidance from our exclusive content creation course and answer some simple questions and we’ll take care of the design from start to finish! 

Plus, you’re now part of our community, so we’re here to lend a hand as you grow and our exclusive membership for DIAD alums is always at your fingertips!

.02
Support Every Step of the Way

Content prep sound terrifying? Don’t worry—our unique framework takes the fear out of staring at that blank page, providing you with guidance on website copy that actually converts visitors into leads and clients.

Got SEO concerns? Basic search engine optimization is included, or upgrade to include done for you keyword research, page title/description optimizations and more with our popular Essentials package.

No brand? No problem! While Design in a Day™ is best for business with a brand in place, are willing to work with our preferred brand designer to develop one, or are okay with a “intro brand” of just colors and typography that we help you select.

.03
PRactical, Yet Powerful

Design in a Day™ includes everything you need to get your online presence up and running, plus two free online courses only available to our Design in Day™ clients. You’ll work closely with Kath at the end of your design day so you’re empowered to tweak your content, refine your content strategy and make your website work for you—think of your site like a virtual employee working hard for you while you do your actual work.

The result? You can be confident that this is a professional, ready-to-go website you can launch immediately and you will grow with!

If there was a button for 10 stars I would give it to Sarah Moon. 

She and her team are extraordinary value for money. I used her Design in a Day™ website services: my Squarespace site wasn’t super straightforward but Sarah was brilliant. She helped me figure out a strategy that went to the heart of who I am and what I want to say. Her visual sensibilities are spot on. Her system of rolling out a website is really quite ingenious. I am so, so thankful I found Sarah Moon on the interwebs and if you have made it this far, just hire her already. She is a gift.

One Day Website Portfolio

*Yes, these were really launched in a single day.

We 100% design your website for you! No messing with the annoying techy stuff or fussing about what font size to use! But, we’re there for you so you know how to use that beautiful new website too! This includes a personalized 1:1 training with Kath and access to our exclusive content creation course and our membership for Design in a Day™ alums, that’s there for you as a resource after you launch, completely free of charge. 

We are able to bring an effective, strategic vision to life because we’re one of the most experienced Squarespace design studios around. We’ve helped hundreds of clients launch the right way, year after year. With us, you can feel confident we know our stuff and you’ll see that in our collaboration with you. 

Also, we do internal strategy prior to your Design Day so we hit the ground running that morning. Why waste time when you can launch effectively and quickly? 

We’ve got a plan for that! Our DIAD alums are eligible for a discounted strategy and update session—just reach out to Sarah and we’ll send you the information. We’re there for you for the long haul. 

Design in a Day™ is crafted exclusively for small businesses and organizations with a single decision-maker. Examples are lawyers, consultants, writers, florists, PR firms, single causes—you get the picture.

If you have multiple owners, you will need to select one to be the point person and decision-maker for your website project. If you’re a larger organization that has a committee or multiple people needing to weigh in on your project, then a longer, strategic website design process is a better match. 

You will get a completely designed five page website designed on the Squarespace platform, training, proofreading, domain mapping, basic search engine optimization and more. It’s all the pieces you need to have a starter website for your small business or a great portfolio to show off to prospective employers or clients.

Possibly! Reach out to Sarah at info@sarahmoon.net about your options!

Design in a Day™ is completely remote! We collaborate virtually over Skype or Zoom, plus email. If you’re interested in a customized, in-person process, reach out and we’ll discuss options. You’ll be shocked how little you need to be involved on your Design in a Day™! As long as you do your homework (complete our questionnaires, view our tutorial videos, etc), we get to work and deliver a completed website! You can schedule your training and review session the day of or a day or two later–Kath will reach out to make this happen!

Design in a Day™ is a 1:1 solution, which is why we can offer a custom website at a reduced rate. If you have a committee or team, you’ll need to decide amongst your team who the primary point of contact and decision maker will be. We are not able to mediate between your team members, as you know your business organization best!

You’ll need to be available for approximately 90 minutes on your Design Day—that’s it! (We can also accommodate timezone differences, just reach out.) You will, however, need to set aside to write all your content or work with our copywriter (reach out for a quote if that’s of interest to you). If you’re a Pro client, you’ll also want to set aside time on your VIP strategy day as well—approximately two hours. 

Usually this is possible within 90 days, if you have not made substantive design or content changes to your website. 

You have a few options! First of all, you may be happier with our traditional design process. You’re invited to explore that here.

In reality, though, you may come to realize that those extra rounds of revisions simply aren’t necessary. We cut out the back and forth and opt for live refinements with Design in a Day™ program so we can offer awesome custom sites at a substantially reduced cost. Our clients LOVE this as they get their new site right away and they learn how to tweak things as their needs change. 

You can also add a second half day Design Day, an additional training session with Kath, or an updates session in the future. 

The reality is, however, that if you come prepared, with your branding ready and all your content prepared prior to your Design Day, you don’t need all that fuss. You’ll save a bunch of time and money and have a site ready to go—right away!

You have two choices: 

  1. Reschedule your Design Day (this is permitted one time for non-emergency issues);
  2. We can design your site with placeholders and you can fill it in.

You can add a handful of pages to your Design in a Day™ website for an additional fee.

Sure thing! You can set up a two-part payment plan with us, with the second payment due 24 hours prior to your Design Day. We are also able to accept PayPal Credit (you have to apply with PayPal via a link on a special invoice we’ll send you), which allows six months of interest free payments. Let us know if you’d like a PayPal invoice with this option. (Again, we have no control over whether or not PayPal qualifies you—it’s simply an option we offer.)

Frankly, that’s never happened! Kath works with you on live refinements so you can tweak things so your site is polished and beautiful! But, in the event you want an entirely different look for your site, we do offer a half day design revision (as scheduling allows) for a reduced rate of $995. Content revisions are the responsibility of the client, as we expect all content to be in final state when we receive it. You’ll receive A+ training on how to modify your content, though!

No problem! Reach out to us at info@sarahmoon.net and we’ll answer you ASAP!

Design in a Day has transformed my business model. 

I knew Sarah and Kath were amazing designers from a previous site, so when I wanted to launch a new Squarespace site they were my first stop. Not only did they design a beautiful and highly functional site, but the questions they asked prior to the process and the follow-up video tutorials have added enormous value to my business. I was clear on what I offer, but floundering on how to reach the right audience.

Going through the process I feel confident that I can reach and engage the right audience with the right content with far less ongoing effort.

Plenty of hacks can create a website, but DIAD supports and enhances my business. SMCo is an invaluable partner for any consultant or business owner.
