website not done yet?
A 6 week personal, one-to-one BETA coaching program: Starts April 22
Here’s how it works, in a nutshell:
I don’t build your site, but for a fraction of the cost of an agency, I’ll be your mentor.
It’s MUCH more powerful than a classic intake or onboarding process.
It’s personalized, fun, and designed with the creative in mind.
You get 6 hours of one-on-one time with me over 6 weeks.
(this is NOT a course, but a coaching program)
You can use it to prep for either having me build your site or do it on your own.
It gets even better: It’s in BETA, and there is a SWEET early bird deal..
I recently had a client who had this tale to tell:
“I hired a web developer who gave me absolutely NO guidance on how to put a website together. It was like I was expected to build a house from a pile of wooden boards and a few bags of concrete.”
The site certainly didn’t meet her expectations. To be honest, the site looked pretty ugly and generic.
The developer expected her to meet him more than halfway, even though she had no idea what was involved in the process of putting together a website, much less an effective one.
The result: A lot of wasted time, money, and energy. It took over a YEAR for her site to get built!
And it most certainly was NOT her fault.
Does this also happen with sites that are not just built with good code and little thought about anything else.
I’ve also had clients who hired branding experts to make a pretty website, but without any clear idea of how the site was supposed to function as a marketing tool for the SPECIFIC business that my clients created.
This isn’t about me wanting to put down other web developers and designers. There are great web designers and developers, and not so great.
Many only focus one or two of the following:
• Solid coding
• Good design and branding
• A good user experience
• A purpose, such as client education, lead generation, online booking, etc.
• Making the website a solid marketing machine
A good website should have ALL these things AND:
The actual process of creating and building the site should be approached in a way that MAKES SENSE FOR THE CLIENT.
The process should allow for flexibility and intuitive flow, but also create structure and accountability for the client.
But outside of the most expensive agencies, this rarely happens.
This is why many end up just going with something “easy” to use, (Those sites that begin with the letter “W”) The problem is that most of these platforms have weak marketing functionality, or require impractical and temporary workarounds. I know this territory and have firsthand examples.
DIYer’s often have their own tales of frustration.
After spending over $300 a year leasing such sites and spending a lot of time that could have been better spent on doing other tasks in their businesses, they may have nothing to show for their efforts but a pretty “brochure” site.
Don’t get me wrong, leasing a site can be a viable temporary solution in some cases. but honestly, they are not great places to plant your business “roots.” I can tell you EXACTLY why.
Bottom line: Do you want a “brochure-ware” website, or a functional marketing engine?
Do you also want to avoid unnecessary wasted time, money, and energy and get that website and your whole marketing system up and running?
(Regardless of whether it’s me or YOU that builds your website)
Would you like for the process to be less painless, and work for you.. as someone who processes information creatively, visually, and intuitively?
Would you like someone to be there when you get STUCK on anything ranging from how to create the right content, to what the next marketing or “technical” step is?
Maybe even a little extra “handholding?”
If the answer is YES, read on..
PRE-LAUNCH DEAL: 50% OFF
$247 When purchased by midnight, April 17.
Wouldn’t it be GREAT to have Someone to Lead and Guide You Through the Process?
This isn’t a course. It’s full-blown coaching.
I’m talking a little extra hand-holding. An individualized approach that bridges the gap between the “developer” and the “non-techy” client. To weave the technical and mindset shifts that BOTH need to happen so that your website is set up for success from the start.
No more GUESSING.
This program is still developing, but YOU can help me refine this program during the pre-launch process until “it’s official” on April 22.

Let’s face it: The difference between going through this program and NOT doing it could very well mean the difference between getting your website done or not.
I will even add that any reputable developer, designer or agency, including myself, will REQUIRE this kind of groundwork to be laid before actual construction.
I’m going to take a leap of faith and guess that you’ll feel MUCH lighter and MUCH better when this very important task finally gets launched.
What clients say…
As a complete novice, I did not know what to do next. Then I found Julie Odler, She quickly understood the depth of the work I offer and my unique offerings. She structured the steps of what I needed to do and educated me. Even better, she gave me permission to approach the process and content *my way*, while being encouraging and helpful.
As Julie put it, “I turned the process on its head”. This was exactly what I needed, as I now feel seen, heard and understood. The result is a website that says what I want it to and represents me in the best possible way. I am so grateful that Julie has navigated this challenge with me. I highly recommend her!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I do this program if I'm building my own website?
I am giving a little bonus to those who chose to hire me to build their websites, but DIYer’s are welcome.
What if I'm using SquareSpace, Wix, or Weebly?
I am in a position where I can pinpoint exactly where you might find frustraion and roadblocks in REAL time with these platforms.. whereas if you did a Google search you may get dated information.
I’m about providing you with data that may be missing for your own research, which allows you to make your own best decision.
You would get a good “behind the scenes” peek at the options available to you that you may not get if you were not working with someone one-on-one.
I do have my preferences, for sure, but I will never push anything on you (this is also part of my affiliate disclaimer, see below)
Why don't I just hire you to do my website?
This helps prevent headaches for everyone and ensures that you get a website you love, that you are engaged with, and does the “heavy lifting” for you.
However, this is a pretty good deal for those who want to proceed to having me build their website: There will be something in it for you to make it a no-brainer!
Why should I do this if I don't get a website in 6 weeks?
The contractor who builds the house does much of the tangible work, but the architect also plays an important role.. one that requires time and skill.
This program isn’t about the construction of a website, or about me doing it for you.
What I’m offering is a different approach to what you would be paying an agency that knows what they are doing. (Not all web developers are even marginally familiar with marketing)
PLUS if you DO decide to continue working with me, I’ll give you a good deal on a website package for already having done the prep/intake work!
This program is designed to go a little deeper and is more affordable and accessible for small business owners.
Can you help me with an email marketing plan instead of a website?
I don't want to deal with any of the "tech" stuff but I'm having a HELL of a time coming up with ideas for for my website. Will this work for me?
I only ask that you DO show up consistently and are open to having some structure and systems in place, which will be a HUGE part of your success. (This goes for left-brained types as well)
This, combined with my website services, could be the perfect combo for you!
I'm super productive and creative but just need some guidance on the "techy stuff." Can we focus on filling in those gaps?
What if I don't make any money?
I DO give you some great tools that will either be essential for your success, or tips that have helped me and my clients.
Factoring in the time and money that you may SAVE by ending the struggle, I feel pretty confident I can help if we are a good candidate for this program.
In other words, if you have an entrepreneurial mindset.
This program also takes time and commitment. Building a business is like that, just as is getting healthy and fit or anything else worth investing in. You have to do the work to get any kind of result.
And at the same time..
I’m committed to setting you up for success.. and I DO believe I can help you work smarter instead of harder.
Is there a self-paced course I can sign up for?
Meanwhile, for the cost of a course, you will get a lot of personalized guidance.
You will also be helping me build future programs and courses!
