What's this all about?
We get it. Not all entrepreneurs are ready for that 10K investment on the website of their dreams.

and full of sacrilege not all businesses NEED or WANT all the razzle dazzle that 10K brings their way.
Sometimes you just need a simple, cool, feels like you, that actually functions, and guides your super awesome totally perfect for you client seamlessly through your experience until they’re screaming “HELL YES! TAKE ALL MY MONEY!!!!”, or maybe just “BOOK NOW”, “LET’S TALK” or “YES! PLEASE”
And even more importantly sometimes, just sometimes, you’re a control freak. (Nothing wrong with liking a little control, just own it friend.) Or you are a lover of knowledge and learning new skills floats your boat. Other times it’s just that you’re rich on time and a little less on money.
For whatever reason you’re here,
we've got you.

HOW IT WORKS
✓ YOU WANT TO CMND CTRL OF YOUR WEBSITE.
✓ PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS.
✓ ALL THE QUESTIONS RAIN DOWN UPON YOU.
*technically just one really long questionnaire now, and then another not so long one closer to the date.
✓ IT FACTOR TIME
This is where Nick uses all his super powers for good instead of evil. He stalks you, in the most useful way possible and shows you back all the very best parts you should absolutely double down on, to make more money, more meaning and more friggin joy in your business.
✓ BRAND EVALUATION
At the end of your it factor Nick will let you know if he suggests you refresh your brand, photos, etc at all before heading into the site building process.
✓ HOMEWORK TIME
Two weeks out we’ll do a 1 hour group call where we give you some light homework assignments and you all get to meet each other.
You come, you get real, you eat delicious healthy lunch that we buy for you, you work through blocks, and upper limits and not being able to find the right words. This is where we will create a framework for your website.
Holy Crap it’s starting to really come together. You’ve got the framework. A piece falls into place. Nope everything’s wrong, and the world is falling apart. Just kidding Shannon did something magical with codes and then copied and pasted a great tutorial into your notes section. You’re on top of the world singing “All I do is win, win, no matter what!!!! My site is AHHHHMAAAAAZZZING!!! AND it’s mostly done. In two days. Sure there are little changes I’ll make, and new images I’ll make because the vibe is different than I first imagined, but it’s SO ME!” you know or something like that.
I’ve been stalking The Westwood on Nick’s instagram long enough! I couldn’t possibly go hang out with Nick and Shan and NOT eat at The Westwood! Closing party time!
We'd never leave you hanging. A month later we meet for a 45 minute follow up call where we help you tweak the little naggy things that pop up, and help you work through any new business problems.
AT THE END OF THE WORKSHOP, YOU’LL WALK AWAY WITH:
A site that sells. We are obsessed with websites, why they are awesome, why they work, why they don’t, we geek out hard. We will pass all this knowledge down to you giving you the tools to create a site that flows seamlessly through your sales process.
copy that converts
Your website currently says stuff. But do the words count? Are they working? Or do you sound a little more like the teacher from Charlie Brown.
Want to know why they book you? And why they don’t? It’s never what you think. Want to figure out exactly who you are and then show that to your client in a way they can’t get enough of?
Not only does this workshop give you access to Shan and Nick’s brilliance (yeah I said we are brilliant) but it gives you a cohort (6 attendees per workshop) of driven like minded pals to kick it with long after your time in Okotoks Alberta has passed.
THINGS YOU’LL NEED:
A computer: Ideally, you’ll have your own laptop that you can build on. If you don’t have one, let us know and we’ll look into some options for you.
A Squarespace account: This first round of CMD+CTRL is a SquareSpace only cohort. Want to make the leap over to the SquareSpace side. No biggie, we can sign you up with a 20% off designer discount and additional trial period.
Content and photos: More so just a general idea of where you are going. Don’t have photos? Squarespace has paired with Unsplash to fill in those spots where an image should go. You can swap out for new photos when you get home.
Photo editing program: It’s suggested that you have some familiarity with a photo editing program to resize images and to add some graphics and flair to your site. Not into photoshop? Nick either. Have you taken a peek at Canva yet? Their “FOR WORK” level option is an awesome easy way to add some sparkle magic to your site.
