A beautiful, well designed website done for you in ONE day is not a figment of your imagination ...
it’s a One Day Website!
Was your last experience with a website designer long, frustrating and expensive?
And between running your business, putting yourself out there on social media and enjoying your life outside of work, the last thing you want is to be up to your eyeballs with DIYing your website and dealing with 404 errors (what are those even?!).
I feel your pain! Website shame is like a bad hair day on steroids, and I know you’d rather be caught in the supermarket while wearing your pajamas than give your online buddies your URL in its current state! *been there*
But here’s the thing - you and your brand are losing credibility (and sales) by the second. I bet you've judged a business or brand you checked out by their dodgy site before! Bounced onto Google (or Instagram) to find the next option instead of giving them a chance! Yup … think about that.
do you have website shame? I feel your pain!
let's fix this
are you that brand? are people bouncing off your website onto the next one?
just imagine ...
waking up this morning knowing that by this evening you will have your dream website online & working for you! Uh huh, I work for YOU for 1 day so you can reap the rewards every day thereafter!
I’m super passionate about what I do … I know you are super passionate about what you do.
And one of the reasons I can develop your website in just one day is because I have 20 years of experience (aging gracefully, I know!) and an arsenal of premium tools which work like a bomb so you don’t have to!
in just one day?
Since you’ve already collected all your web content, I get straight into the design work right away, which is a massive time saver in both our lives.
I also block out my calendar (leaving just enough time for a cup of my favourite brew) and for those 24 hours - my world, quite literally, revolves around YOU and your brand spanking new website!
Because this is a standard (still fab though) five page website I’m not tinkering too much in the back end or prolonging the process with complicated coding and features you don’t need.
And when I’m done, you’ll be left with an incredible springboard that can grow with you and your business!
Need a sales page for a new offering? ... it’s a breeze to add!
Ready to dabble in a membership site? ... magic, let’s add that on!
No more rebuilding your website every time you’re ready to scale! #boss
WHAT DOES A ONE DAY WEBSITE LOOK LIKE?
it looks easy and fun!

Chantal has been a miracle when I needed it most and I’m so very grateful to her for bringing my business baby to life.Sally Oddy
Chantal is a patient saint who happens to make websites. She is worth her weight in gold and this is why I will continue to work with her as my business grows and develops.Jacki Bruniquel
Yvette Visser Coaching
Chantal is an absolute artist.
She truly integrates your brand with you so that you can stand out online. She knows how to work with people and the results show.
what you want
You want a stylish, gremlin-free website that tells your brand story with eloquence and magic.
You want an online home that is all you, and all done with the best tools on the market.
AND you want a designer who gets it right the first time.
A designer who gets your vision without tons of follow up emails and lengthy meetings.
A designer who spares you the tears, and nightmares, and makes you forget all about your last experience with a web developer.
You want to work with someone who you can trust, and involve in the epic journey of your business without reservation.
You need the backing of an experienced, knowledgeable developer who breaks down the tech speak into bite-size lingo that you can understand and sign off on with ease.
and heck yes, you wouldn’t mind if you could get it all done in one day!
“Building a website for your brand and business is by no means a small feat, but Chantal seems to be able to bring your vision to life with accuracy, patience, grace and flair! She is always educating herself in her trade and that is what sets Chantal apart from others in her space. She has an unwavering dedication to not only giving you a great website, but empowering you with the skills (through video tutorials) to be able to keep it relevant, current and updated.” Ashley Knight - The Ashley Knight Company

this is for you if...
One Day Website is a fun, easy process if you are truly ready for your brand to explode online.
- You are ready to hire a professional to build your website and get results quickly!
- All your brand assets are good to go! Think brand logo, colour palette, images, copy, everything you need to create a website that is 100% you.
- You know who your ideal client is and how you want to speak to them.
- You know what the primary goal of your website is.
- You have a deadline, and a budget, and you can’t wait to rock and roll!
this is not for you if...
- You want to DIY some things to lower costs!
- Your brand is kind of mod podge and all over the place right now.
- You don’t have a logo, colour palette, images or copy - yet!
- You’re unsure about your ideal client or want to market to every single soul - for a while.
- You don’t really know why you need a website or what to use it for.
- Building your website is not urgent and you’re on a really tight budget!
honest moment ...
I’ve had to fix A LOT of broken websites for clients and other less experienced web developers. And here in South Africa there’s an Afrikaans saying, “Goedkoop koop is duurkoop!” which kinda sorta means that “buying cheap is buying expensive!”. And while going the DIY route or accepting the cheapest quote might save you money the first time around, you are bound to spend more money in the long run! For real, I’ve broken down the true cost of DIY design here.
While this mistake is quite common (and nothing to be embarrassed about) it pains me to see clients who have invested time and money on a solution only to pay me to start from scratch and do this website thing right!
Hey, maybe you’re first website was okay for when you started.
Maybe you quite liked your last web design.
But maybe it’s time for something different, something new, something professional and 100% you.
Maybe you want to re-launch without the month long lead times.
Perhaps you’re starting a new business in a hurry.
Whatever your story, a One Day Website can turn a page in your business with speed and efficiency!
You’ve heard the horror stories, maybe you’ve experienced one too. But with the right investment, and the right designer, your website dreams can come true - quickly! A beautiful, well designed website is not a figment of your imagination - it’s a 1 Day Website!
“When I think of Chantal I think of a patient saint who happens to make websites. This wonderful women is unflappable and like a secret weapon for any entrepreneur who needs the tech but also needs a web developer who speaks human and can make things simple! The result is a website that is more me and is also easy for me to adapt and change in the future. She is worth her weight in gold and this is why I will continue to work with her as my business grows and develops.” Jacki Bruniquel
Hi! I’m Chantal!
Hi! I’m Chantal!
Award-winning serial entrepreneur, super mom and website developer.
In 2016, I changed up my old-school web developer ways and decided to build websites in one day for coaches and entrepreneurs who don’t have the time, money or stamina for long and complicated development processes!
I’ve been addicted to fast turn around ever since (I’ve been building websites since the 90s *omg*), and quite happily churn out some banging websites and online systems that are chic and tech savvy in the time it takes some people to respond to an email! *fail*
My clients live the laptop life from some of the most beautiful parts of the world while I make my home and office in beautiful, sunny Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa.
I love to keep my meetings short and empower my peeps to freely maintain their websites without the fear of breaking it! Hey, someone’s got to take the tech out of technology and make the website development process super easy to understand!
When I am not chasing after my toddler, Charlie, or enjoying a glass of wine with the beard in my life, Vince, I live a simple life fighting website shame and hot, sticky Durban nights!

behind the scenes
Easy visual feedback tool on the pages as I build them
Your own client portal where you can easily access everything we have shared for your build
Extensive selection of training videos right in your dashboard
Website Owners Manual to help you keep all the important info in one spot
Easily leave feedback on your web pages
KEEP TRACK OF WHERE WE ARE IN YOUR CLIENT PORTAL
Do you have any questions?
As soon as I have an available spot. I recommend that you book at least 2 weeks in advance to prepare all your website content.
Yes! Your 1 Day Webs site is a robust and scalable base for you to build on going forward.
Abso-freaking-lutely! Just add it at checkout.
Easy peasy, select it at checkout.
I need your brand information, logos, photos, copy and any design inspiration you can find. Remember, rather too much than too little! Don’t forget that you need a registered domain and hosting logins too.
Of course, you need to book and pay as well.
I’ll create a shared Dropbox folder for you where you can pop all these goodies for me … or if you use Google Drive … we can make that work too … just let me know your preference.
I’d love you to add me on Telegram so we can voice note each other throughout the process to save time. The best way to explain what you like and dislike is with examples ... so screenshot the bits of websites you love / send me links with notes … I love this … I hate this … between that and your branding guidelines … I normally get a very clear picture of what you are dreaming about.
That depends on variables specific to your website build.
If you want add-ons like e-commerce, an online course or membership system, etc. there may be extra costing.
Don’t worry, if you aren’t sure about this, I will help you make the decision and point you in the right direction.
Hell yes!!! Does your car need gas? Does it need a service? Does your house need upkeep? Yup! So does your website! You can totally take responsibility for this yourself but if you want me to do this for you, I’ve got your back! Simply add this option during checkout.
I have designed this offer in a way that gives you my undivided attention for the project period. I don’t take on any other work while working on your website, and so your payment secures your slot in my calendar and gives me the freedom to turn down other work. No refunds are available from the time of booking. Additionally, no refunds are considered during or after the project period.
You’ll have the option of up to three rounds of revisions. However, I find that most of my clients make only tiny revisions, once, maybe twice at most. This is because I strive to create something that you’ll absolutely love - the first time.
I’ve seriously NEVER had this … not even once! And I’m a total people pleaser … so please please … send as much feedback as you can from minute 1 so there is absolutely no way you will be faced with something you don’t love.
I provide a very easy to use on page commenting system where you can pop your comments on the web pages directly for me and I will be able to easily see these comments and change requests.
You can also email me and add me on Telegram so we can voice note each other throughout the process to save time. If you want to document changes in a Word doc … that works too … or in your task management system (Trello, Asana, Basecamp, TeamWork … you name it, I can check it!)
… I’m here to make your life easier so I’m happy to work with what is already working in your business for our precious day together. The only thing I hate is a million individual emails with one task per email … please don’t do that to my inbox LOL.
You can expect pretty frequent communication on that day (and a couple of days either side of it) … remember I’m building fast and the more feedback I get as I go through each page or section of your website... the more I can accomplish during our time together. So on build day I need you checking in frequently to look at the pages and give me feedback. Once we are confident we are on the right track you can relax and let me get on with it and I’ll just pop you links as I complete things for easy review.
If your previous website developer set up your domain and hosting from you, you need to request this information from them. Otherwise, just pop over the login information for the sites where you purchased your domain and hosting and I will find the information I need. Don’t have a domain or hosting? I can sort this out for you if you want … just shout.
Hell yessssss! I have AMAZING people to recommend!!! Please drop me a mail and I'll put you in touch.
Of course you can … but remember I am typically booked out 2-3 months in advance … so I might be in the middle of a build in which case I am unable to help you immediately. I will move heaven and earth (and have done this before) to save your bacon … but I will have to invoice you for my time … this mamma has sacrificed way too many weekend hours with Charlotte to do it all for nothing LOL! My hourly rate starts at $150 for this kind of ad hoc work.
When I complete your website, you'll receive a copy of The Website Owner’s Manual which will help you keep track of all the important details about your website; including logins, hosting setup, DNS records, routine maintenance, & answers to my most frequently asked questions to help you have continued success with your website should you wish to give it a go on your own.
