Welcome to Farm Light Designs! I specialize in creative design for the small businesses and organizations of Southwest Minnesota, primarily in the areas of web design and social media management. My business is to work one-on-one with folks, not just to achieve their current web design and marketing needs, but to offer continuing service and support that will help small SW Minnesota groups and businesses thrive. While your attention is focused on running your company or organization successfully and smoothly, I’ll be there to help you navigate the world of maintaining your online presence! Here’s how…

Your website is the core of your online marketing presence, and should embody the heart of what your business or organization represents. I will help you to take your ideas and turn them into a one-of-a-kind concept that is uniquely ‘you’.

Social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc…) is one of the best ways to regularly engage with your patrons and potential clients to keep them informed. From simply needing help setting up your social media accounts, to a complete management package, I’m your gal.

The needs of your business or organization don’t end at the completion of setting up your website or social media page. From the basic maintenance package to a custom package designed to meet your individual needs, I can help you make sure your accounts stay current and dynamic.

Not all marketing options make sense for everyone. Exclusively for website clients, I’ll work with you to analyze and implement the tools that are the right fit for your own personal ‘marketing toolbox’, such as email marketing, print materials, ad building, promotional items, etc…

I specialize in creative design solutions for small businesses and organizations, particularly website design and ongoing support services such as website updates and maintenance, as well as social media management. If that sounds like what you’re looking for, contact me and we can discuss your needs and determine if I am the right fit for your project! Visit the ‘About’ page to learn more about me and connect.

Once we determine what your needs are, we’ll discuss your project in more specific terms and I will provide you with a quote. The quote is my best fair estimate of what the services will cost based on our preliminary conversations, but please keep in mind that this amount is subject to change based on the actual work completed as the project moves forward. I will do my best to keep you informed of those costs along the way. I treat my clients respectfully and fairly and expect to be treated the same. If you decide to move forward, a non-refundable 50% deposit will be due before any work begins. View the individual service pages (website design or social media management) to learn more about base pricing.

Time to begin! The goal of creative design is to successfully communicate to potential clients what your business or organization provides; therefore, the success of your project depends largely on the content you provide for me. From images to written content to design details, we will work together to gather and organize the content needed to represent you well.

I will start by coming up with a basic color scheme, design concept and ‘feel’ for your project. Once we have settled on the basic design concept, I will begin adding the bulk of the content and detailed work as applicable. To keep things moving forward, a set number of revisions will be allowed. Please refer to the pages for specific services (website design or social media management) to learn more about the parameters included for each type.

The hard work is done and the fun begins… It’s time to launch your website and/or social media platform for public viewing and get noticed!

Any good creative designer will tell you that the journey does not end once your projects are complete, especially in the ever-changing world of web design and social media, which is why I offer and encourage ongoing management and maintenance packages. Services may include regular updates, providing analytics, keeping platform and hosting accounts up to date, and more… All so that you can focus on what matters to you: running your business or organization as successfully and smoothly as possible.

Thanks for stopping in! The design in ‘Farm Light Designs’ is carried out one click at a time by me (Laura), but it wouldn’t be possible without my support team (a.k.a. my hubs and kids). Click here to learn a little more about us!
