What do you do/what is your business?: I am a blogger who writes about fashion, beauty and lifestyle for working class women with side hustles.
What template did you purchase?: The Derive Template! & I have ZERO regrets!
Why did you choose that particular template?: I chose this template because of how unique yet appealing it was. The aesthetic and the layout just spoke to me and I am glad I went for it. Anyone who personally knows me and visits my page says it is very fitting!
Why did you want a new website?: I wanted to completely rebrand my website, as it was five years old and didn't fit my personality anymore.
Why did you choose to purchase one of my templates, rather than a competitors?: I chose to go with Derive because out of all (and I mean a TON) of the research I did and templates I viewed, this one spoke the most to me. I just knew it was for me - the layout, the colors, how easy and interactive it looked.
How did you feel before you created your new website?: I was honestly terrified. The person who was supposed to do my website was extremely unreliable and I really wanted to take matters into my own hands. I was just so afraid that I'd dive into something and completely regret the decision I made, with no solution.
How do you feel now that you have launched your new site?: BEYOND PROUD. I mean, anyone who sees it just gasps, and I like to tell them I did it all by myself. (with your help and talent of course :) )
How do you think your business is going to benefit from your new website?: I think that my traffic will eventually increase tremendously and people will stay on my site much longer. I plan and increasing my sponsorship fees and working with more brands.
How did you find the whole Squarespace Template process from purchase to launch?: It was a complete breeze, the entire process was literally organized in a way that you couldn't mess up. What I honestly like the most was how interactive you are with your clients. More than often, people sell and just move on - but you actually make sure your customers are 1000000% satisfied and answer in such a timely manner.
What's your fav series on Netflix right now?: HAHA I love this bit! Check out Madam Secretary, Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder... AWESOME!
