If you didn’t start with a Website Audit or Marketing Audit (not required), schedule a free consultation. After learning about your project, Bento Sites will email a proposal that contains a detailed list of everything that’s included in your redesigned website.
Once the proposal is accepted, complete the Design Forms and schedule Project Meetings.
A hierarchical list of all the pages to be designed (i.e. sitemap) is created. Then, static representations of each page are sketched (i.e. wireframes). Website copy is proofread and edited to ensure it’s concise, keyword-rich and crafts a brand-matching voice with visual balance and contextual flow.
Web pages are built and optimized for mobile, tablets and desktops. Images are resized and compressed. On-page SEO is improved. Social media and third-party accounts are connected. Email marketing and third-party integrations are connected.
Once the site ready to be viewed and approved, a site-wide password is enabled until launch day.
The final invoice and Squarespace fees are paid. Domain names are connected, transferred or registered. Google Analytics is setup. XML sitemaps are submitted to Google and Bing. If applicable, redirects are setup and Squarespace add-ons are purchased.
The project concludes with 1 hour of Squarespace training, transferring website ownership, setting up contributor permissions and launching the website. Receive 1 week of post-launch email support.
All website projects are exclusively designed on Squarespace — the user-friendly website builder and content management system that powers millions of websites across hundreds of industries. By choosing Bento Sites, you’ll save 20% on your annual Squarespace subscription (first year only).

Q: Can you also design new websites?
A: Yes. Reserve a free consultation to learn more.
Q: What's a Website Redesign?
A: Bento Sites migrates your site from your current content management system (e.g. Wix, WordPress) to Squarespace and then redesigns and rebuilds the site.
Q: Will I lose traffic when my site is migrated to Squarespace?
A: Site migrations are never 100% perfect. You'll likely experience an initial dip in traffic. Also, if your site is brand new, you may also be sandboxed by Google for a period of time.
Q: I'm interested in working with Bento Sites, but don't want to use Squarespace. Will you work with another platform?
A: Not at this time. I work exclusively on the Squarespace 7 platform.
Q: How long does a Website Redesign take?
A: Most projects are completed in 2 weeks.
Q: Will I own the website?
A: Absolutely. Bento Sites is just the designer.
Q: Will I be able to request changes during or after the website's launched?
A: Up to 2 revisions are allowed during the project for most phases. In addition, you’ll receive 1 week of email support after the website is completed. Request for changes after the website is completed will be invoiced.
Q: I need a large website with a lot of customization. Can you help me?
A: No. Bento Sites helps small businesses with small websites and designs exclusively on the Squarespace consumer platform.
Q: I'm not a previous client, but can I hire Bento Sites?
A: Yes, reserve a Coaching Call.
Q: Does Bento Sites specialize in SEO (Search Engine Optimization)?
A: Bento Sites follows white hat SEO best practices and makes SEO part of the design strategy, not an afterthought.
Q: Can you transfer my domain with the Website Redesign?
A: Yes. As long as you provide login credentials to your domain registrar in the Design Forms.
Q: I don't have any photos of my business and can't afford a professional photographer. What should I do?
A: Use a modern smartphone camera (iPhone 8+ or newer) might be enough. Bento Sites can also adjust or tint the images to make them appear more professional.
Q: How do I provide my website copy, images, usernames, passwords, etc.?
A: Bento Sites uses Google Drive for collecting website assets (photos, graphics, audio, video, etc.). 1Password and other options are used for submitting account logins. All of the above, are free of charge for clients.
Q: Will you work with design studios, agencies, web designers or SEOs?
A: Not at this time.
Q: What's Squarespace?
A: Squarespace is the modern, secure and beautiful all-inclusive website builder and CMS (content management system). There's no software to download nor install — simply login from a computer from a modern browser.
Q: Will I be able to update and manage the website myself?
A: Yes. Once the project is completed, Bento Sites provides clients with 1 hour of Squarespace training on launch day and 1-week of post-launch email support. In addition, Squarespace provides 24/7 award winning customer service. If you still need help, hire Bento Sites at an hourly rate.
Q: There are several free and inexpensive Website Builder and CMS platforms. Why Squarespace?
A: Unlike free and cheaper DIY platforms, Squarespace offers an all-inclusive package with high-quality software that's easy for clients to update and manage themselves.
Q: Is Squarespace secure?
A: Yes. Squarespace handles all of the security upgrades for their servers and the technical details to ensure your website is always up and running. In addition, since customer payment data isn't stored on Squarespace, customers don't need to worry about data breaches.
Q: Is Bento Sites a Squarespace site?
A: Yes. I use a variant of the Brine template.
Q: Can you import my blog to Squarespace 7?
A: Blogs can be imported from Squarespace 5, Blogger, Tumblr and WordPress. If you don't use any of those platforms, each blog post will need to be independently copied into Squarespace.
Q: Can I keep my business email address (email@example.com) once I move to Squarespace?
A: Yes. If you don't have a business email, Bento Sites can acquire one for you through Squarespace's integration with Google's G Suite (affiliate link).
Q: How can I find my sitemap?
Q: Will my Squarespace website have an app?
A: No. A website is a collection of pages to be viewed on the internet — not an app. However, iOS (iPhone, iPad) users can create shortcuts to their home screens that look just like app icons. To do this, open Safari on iOS. Click the Action Arrow. Click Add to Home Screen. Try saving the Bento Sites website to your home screen now.
Q: How will my website look on mobile?
A: Wonderful! Websites are optimized for mobile, tablets and desktops.
Q: Will my website always be online?
A: As long as the annual Squarespace subscription is paid and you don't disable your site's main navigation, a Squarespace site will remain online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
