Website design for business

Getting a business website is a big step for many business owners. Online is a new territory for you. We get it.

At Kokono, we offer a more fluid way to getting a business website. Entrepreneurs are invited to experience a collaborative website design process.

Listening and observation is the first step to a great web design.

Collaborative Web Design

We listened to our clients. We noticed that business owners have a lot of going on in their heads and all seek to be heard.

Sounds like you? You’re invited to our collaborative web design space.

Imagine a mirror that makes the point of what your business is about. This is it.

How it works? We’ll connect during video calls using an online visualisation tool Miro and capture your thoughts as you speak. In no time, you’ll see clarity about your business emerging, your website layout getting shape with brand messaging and customer needs unfolding.

Brochure Website

A simple website that tells your business story in 1-8 pages is called a brochure website. Everything is included in this website package. Your website looks as beautiful on mobile as on computer. Your website is made for humans as well as search engines.

Brand Guidelines

Let’s dive deep into all things branding. Brand Guidelines is a step-by-step journey into discovering and creating your brand. Not just a logo, colours and fonts, but an entire brand universe! We say that a brand is a bridge between you and your customers, so let’s create yours?

Ecommerce Website

When you’re ready to collect payments from customers for your consultations or sell your art on your website, an ecommerce website is what you need. This is also called an online shop and an online store. Professional and secure. Easy to update.

Online Courses

Selling online courses from your website becomes more and more popular among consultants. We guide business owners through all steps of selling an online course from their website, from course structure planning, course materials development to an elearning system setup and videos editing.

Frequently asked questions

For your convenience, here are some frequently asked questions from business owners like you and our answers. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.

Your Needs

Yes! This is our first step indeed. During our first consultation, we’ll talk about how unique your business is, your target customers and how to present your business on your website.
Yes, of course. Our websites are all devices-friendly. Moreover, we will show you how it works if you like. When editing your website, you will see how each page is looking on computer, mobile and tablet before publishing updates because your website will be made with a visual page builder Elementor that gives previews of pages when you’re editing it.
Yes. Your website will be visual, mobile, fast and have a clear website structure with all pages and photos optimised for keywords that matter to your business. Also we will get your business a “Google My Business” profile that boosts your business presence online in as little time as 1-3 weeks.
Yes. Your website will be on WordPress CMS and made with a visual page builder Elementor, which makes it easy to update your website with a modern “drag and drop” flow and blocks of reusable elements. Moreover, after our time together, we will have a dedicated time for web training for you, so that you learn web editing skills!
Happy to help. In fact, we are experienced in both, setting up elearning systems for clients but also co-creating course materials (course outlines and branded training slides and even editing your videos). Just reach out to discuss your course idea and we’ll be happy to help!
100%. We recommend SiteGround hosting that has an extra security layer for WordPress websites with its dedicated ST Security plugin and a free SSL certificate (adds a green lock to your website! and looks like “https” instead of just “http”).

Technologies

WordPress and Elementor, which makes it easy to update your website with a “drag and drop” flow.

WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world for websites. It offers a modular approach to web development.

Whenever you need an additional functionality on your website, it’s fast to get it live with tiny programs within WordPress ecosystem called plugins.

Also, WordPress comes with a blog which is still one of the main channels for online marketing (a blog ensures your website is always getting fresh content and this way it boosts SEO).

When your customer makes a payment on your online shop, the payment goes to Stripe or PayPal for Business and then to your business bank account. We can set up both accounts for you and make sure everything works smoothly.

Timelines

We offer two ways of working. If you’re in a hurry, yes, we can launch your branded website fast, in 1 or 2 weeks. But our clients stories show that it’s easier to launch branded websites if we work together for 6-12 weeks to ensure we have time to hear you and make the process as smooth as possible.

It depends on which service you choose. Although in web design process you will be needed to connect with your web designers for this amount of time:

  1. Planning Stage: When service starts, connect with us for 1-2 hours consultation time:
    • First consultation is about our Project Plan when we discuss your  our website project scope, website goals, your target audience
    • Sharing your passwords (web hosting and WordPress if you have it setup) and sharing bank details if you need an ecommerce addon
  2. Creating Stage: Allocate time for brand discovery sessions and brand revisions:
    • Connect with us for 2-3 hours consultation time for Brand Guidelines service. We will discuss your inspirations and needs for a logo, colours, fonts, all connected to your business values
    • 2 revisions of your completed brand guidelines document
    • Allocate yourself a dedicated time to provide website texts or to work with a copywriter (which we can recommend)
  3. Website Approval Stage:
    • 2 revisions of Website Layout Plan where you will see your website layout with a brand identity and website texts in a visual document, before the web development has started
    • 2 revisions of completed live website
  4. Training stage: 2 hours of training on how you can update your website
  5. Completion stage: Allocate yourself time to make the payments to us and fill out forms if you’re in TOV programme (Ireland)

Yes of course. We are always available for a free clarity call.

Moreover, when our collaboration starts our website project is visually mapped in Trello online project management app. That gives an idea of where in the journey we are.

At the end of the day, it’s all about being human. Both of us, Ruta and Malu, are not just your web designers, but also we are experienced in facilitation and holding space, so whenever you feel like a need to talk, just call us and we will hear all your worries and help to calm down.

"Kokono was a pleasure to work with, very diligent, friendly and created a wonderful website for my business. She also completed online website training and broke it down into simple blocks for me, so I can easily update my own website. Her training videos are excellent, short and to the point, a great back up for me. I would highly recommend Ruta and look forward to working with her again in the future."
