being a web designer doesn't have to be emotionally and financially exhausting

Seriously? Yep! Keep reading.

Do you secretly hate your web design business?

(It’s OK. I won’t tell.)

•••

Do your clients drive you nuts with scope creep, bad boundaries, and poor manners, but you’re stuck taking on anyone willing to pay you?

Are you stuck charging low-end rates and working for clients who want every penny of value?

Do you feel unappreciated even though you go above and beyond?

Are you just winging it month to month, never knowing what you’re going to make because you’re relying on word of mouth?

Do you take your phone to the shower just to make sure you don’t miss any important Slack messages?

Are you struggling to get new leads while designers who do inferior work are crushing it?

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Let’s build a web design agency you love.

Hi, I’m Ysmay.

I’ve been a web designer since 1999, and while I now have a design agency that I love, it hasn’t always been this way.

I used to hate my business.

I love web design.

I absolutely love building websites.

But I hated everything to do with the actual business.

I was at the mercy of bad clients who thought that $500 for a website was a lot of money.

I spent so long on each and every website that I was losing money.

I was constantly scrambling to find clients, and in the months I didn’t, it was rough.

 

I can’t tell you how many Decembers I spent looking at the year ahead and fantasized about closing up shop.

But I was determined to succeed. After years of trial and error, I finally cracked the code.

I figured out how to go from burned out to booked out. I figured out how to get paid thousands of dollars for a website, and I figured out how to systematise my work, so I could design a gorgeous website in days, instead of months.

And now, I want to share my process with you.

I am going to pull back the curtain and show you exactly how I have turned my little freelance web design business into a full service web design agency complete with high-ticket clients, who love to work with me and don’t micromanage.

• What’s Inside • 

9 game-changing sprints to help you grow, sell, and work less.

Monthly mentorship to help you grow your web design agency even faster.

•••

Sprint 1

•••

How to define your market. Find the smallest viable market for your services. (You’ll be surprised who that is!)

Sprint 2

•••

How to structure your offers. Stop charging low rates and charge what you’re worth. (Bye bye low-end work!)

Sprint 3

•••

How to structure your time so you can stop working constantly. (Run your agency in just a few hours per day!)

Sprint 4

•••

How to find your dream team, and manage them. What roles you need to fill, and how to delegate your work. 

Sprint 5

•••

How to build your Expansion Engine. Stop wondering where your next client will come from with this process!

Sprint 6

•••

How to finally get paid for proposals. You’re not in the proposal business; stop giving them away for free.

Sprint 7

•••

How to sell strategy. Most designers give strategy away for free. Learn how to charge for it in this sprint.

Sprint 8

•••

How to set the Terms of Engagement. Stop letting clients walk all over you once and for all by setting boundaries that work!

Sprint 9

•••

How to avoid failure. Understand the break points of agencies, and how to plan for them so you thrive where others fail.

what makes this different?

•••

Booked Out is an accelerator which means you not only get the knowledge, and mentorship, but you also get proposal templates, checklists, and email templates to help you scale even faster. Take the very documents I use in my own agency.

 

monthly mentorship

•••

It’s not enough to know what to do; you have to take action, which is why Booked Out is structured as a mentorship program. Every month you’ll get guidance and feedback, including implementation support, and proposal reviews.

 

What’s my investment?

•••

How many clients are you missing out on because they don’t know why they should hire you?

How many moments with friends and family have you missed out on because you were too busy working? 

How much sleep have you missed because you’re crunched on a deadline?

Not having a mentor and a proven process is already costing you a great deal.
