Hi! I'm Arianna, and understanding how the Internet moves and works is my jam.
I've been building websites and working on the internet for over 18 years before founding Rascal Dart. In my career, I've planned, designed, modified and developed websites, apps and digital advertising for clients ranging from MTV to MAC Cosmetics to Columbia Records and many more. I’m a veteran of this often complex and confusing digital landscape, and now I want to help simplify it for you!
At Rascal Dart, our aim is to take a holistic approach to evaluating your business needs – we ask the right questions in order to fit our strategy to your level of tech expertise (even if it's none!), your business model, and your brand. Consider it a collaboration of sorts; the end goal is to create an easy-to-use website that you feel comfortable using as your company thrives and grows.
Q. How long does building a Squarespace website take?
It depends on the scale & complexity of the site! Typically we allow several weeks to a month, but your site could go up in as quickly as a week (even shorter if necessary, depending on the availability of the team - talk to us about our 48-hour package). We can work very quickly if we have great communication and quick responses.
Q. CAN YOU REDESIGN A SQUARESPACE WEBSITE WE ALREADY HAVE?
Absolutely! Redesigning existing sites is always fun, because who doesn’t love a dramatic before-and-after?
Q. How much does it cost?
Please contact us for a free consultation and specifics!
Q. Will my new website work on mobile phones?
Yes. All of our Squarespace websites are fully mobile responsive, meaning they work on mobile phones and tablets as well as desktop browsers.
Q. DO YOU DO ONGOING WEBSITE MAINTENANCE?
Yes. We offer monthly retainer packages, which vary depending on the amount of time commitment you need.
Q. WILL I HAVE FULL ACCESS TO MY WEBSITE?
Of course! Our goal is to build you a website you own and can update yourself. You’ll have full administrative access and ownership of your site, video screencasts that guide you through site updates, and 30 days of email support post-launch.
Q. WILL YOU SHOW ME HOW TO USE MY NEW WEBSITE? WHAT IF I NEED SUPPORT LATER?
For sure. We never hand off a website without making sure our client knows how to use it first. We provide step-by-step video screencasts to show you how to make updates. You get 30 days of free dedicated email support after your site launches, too - just in case you need a little extra help.
Q. Why Squarespace?
Squarespace is an excellent solution for the majority of online marketing needs. It’s very flexible, easy to understand, and has the easiest to use CMS of any website platforms out there, which means you can easily update your website yourself (a CMS system is what you use to upload and manage the content on your website.)
Q. Does your team do copywriting?
If you’d prefer not to write your own copy, we provide professional marketing copywriting services for an additional fee.
Q. What should I be doing on social media? Do you do social media management?
We analyze your business approach during our needs discovery phase to figure out what kind of social media marketing works best for you. We create an easy-to-follow social media strategy guide for your team to follow. At this time, we don’t offer in-house social media management.
