Creating and optimizing a website that gets results is no easy task! Like many of our clients, you might be experiencing some of these common frustrations:

Outdated or cookie-cutter design

Looks bad on mobile devices

Loads slow or difficult to navigate

Difficult to update

Don't know how to drive traffic or interpret analytics data

Current platform doesn't offer needed functionality

It doesn't have to be so difficult.

With our help, you can stop wasting hours wrestling with your technology and establish a solid foundation for your website & brand online.

Custom integration services

Most business owners aren't taking advantage of opportunities to automate repetitive tasks. When we design and build your website, we'll connect other digital tools you're using (like HubSpot, MailChimp, or Instagram) to ensure its part of a larger system enabling you to work smarter.

Jen and her team at Mercury Jane Media are an absolute DREAM to work with. Jen is always full of ideas and enthusiasm and her coding skills are out of this world! Plus Figma designs are always very creative and fun! She truly cares about the client experience and organises everything in Notion which is very efficient, she’s never late! Jen even spent the time recording Loom videos explaining how she coded certain things 😄 The best part? She cares about people and the planet and she very kindly donated some time to a charitable project outside of our working partnership. We have worked with many developers and Jen is the best. Thank you, Jen!

Jen Ross at Mercury Jane has proven to be the exact resource I needed when I decided to level up my professional website. Her personalized support always finds a way to achieve the function and aesthetic I desire with the most elegant solutions. Additionally, I am interested in learning much of the process myself and Jen has been more than accommodating by creating personalized Loom videos and using Notion for streamlined constant contact. She continues to be an extremely reliable, supportive, and knowledgeable resource that I will keep as part of my team indefinitely! Take the leap, hire Jen and Mercury Jane to watch your digital marketing dreams come true!

I met Jennifer several years ago when she began her career as an educator. I watched her do an amazing job educating young people and, recently, I needed media help with my political campaign and she literally put my campaign on the right track. She and Patrick are an awesome team! Between the two of them, they took care of everything. This included my website, logo, and business cards, and it was done quickly, efficiently, and professionally.

How we make it easy

Getting a website that works shouldn't require dozens of meetings or months of back and forth. We'll ask the right questions from the get-go, so we understand exactly what you need and can deliver quickly.

1. Listen & Learn

Once we're ready to get started, we schedule a kickoff call to discuss your website and/or branding needs and learn as much as possible about your company. Together, we complete an initial outline of your website and brand strategy.

2. Design & Build

Using the outlines and notes from our kickoff call, we mock up initial designs and send them to you for feedback. After making any necessary revisions, we build your new site and start adding custom integrations to automate your workflow.

3. Launch

As we make final changes, we ensure your website & logos look great on all modern browsers and devices. We then provide you with personalized videos showing how to handle simple updates step-by-step. When all systems are go, we launch your site and wait for the rave reviews to start rolling in!

FAQs

Here are a few questions we get asked a lot. If you still have some, don't hesitate to send us an email!

How long do projects typically take?

Branding projects typically take 2-4 weeks and website projects typically take 4-8 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project.

How much do your services cost?

We price our services on a per-project basis because every client has slightly different needs. However, to provide a ballpark, our minimum for branding work is $2,500 and our website minimum is $7,000.

Do you do social media and/or paid ad management?

While we can create social media and ad graphics as part of our branding & design services, we do not have the resources to offer ongoing social media or paid ad (on social media or Google) management at this time.

How do payments work?

Our invoices are sent via email and allow you to pay with a debit/credit card, ACH transfer, or check. For branding-only projects, we collect 100% of the total cost upfront. For website projects, it’s also preferable to collect 100% of the total cost upfront. However, as these projects are larger and more costly, we understand it can be difficult to pay the full amount at once. In that case, we collect 50% of the total cost to start, 25% once the home page design has been approved, and the final 25% once the site is approved for launch. For website maintenance & SEO plans, we send an invoice on the same agreed-upon date every month and set up automatic billing with a debit/credit card.

Do you offer your services to organizations outside of Central Florida?

Yes! Although we are located in Lake Mary, Florida, we are thrilled to partner with organizations all over the world as long as the project requirements, timing, and budget align! In addition to our Central Florida clients, we currently serve clients in Memphis, TN and the UK. Our efficient processes and timely communication make collaborating remotely extremely doable. Between Zoom, Slack, and email, we’ve never had an issue or delay!

How do updates after the website launch work?

We work hard to ensure simple updates, like adding or removing products/services, team members, testimonials, and FAQs, are easy and straightforward for you or a designated member of your team to handle. We even provide personalized videos showing how to do this step by step before we launch your site! However, we understand you may not have the time or desire to take this on (plus, anything involving images can get tricky fast!) and you’ll certainly require more extensive updates over time. We would love to continue our partnership and offer monthly website maintenance plans for anyone requiring regular, ongoing updates. If it’s a more occasional need, just contact us when you’re ready to make changes and we will discuss the scope, provide you with a quote, and schedule an appropriate time frame to implement.

Can I keep my site on its existing platform (WordPress, Shopify, etc)?

In our initial discovery sessions, we will help you determine what platform will best suit your needs moving forward. Sometimes the current platform is still the best option, but, even if it isn’t, we will help you migrate over to the new platform and ensure you don’t lose any important content, data, or SEO rankings in the process.
