Hi, I'm Megan -

founder of Nutmeg, mama of 2 and a
passion-driven web designer with a 10+ year career in communications and marketing in South Africa
and the UK.

As a small business owner, I know you want more sales and qualified inquiries so you can keep growing a profitable and sustainable business. One of the best ways to achieve this is through a beautiful, thoughtfully-designed website that helps your brand stand out online and be remembered.

The problem is you’re too busy building and running your own business (and doing what you do best) to figure out how to do it all yourself. You simply want a beautiful + strategic online home that reflects your vision, without the overwhelm (and frustration) of doing it all yourself or working with another subpar web design agency that doesn’t care and gets it all wrong (again). I would love to help you achieve this.

Services I offer

My mission is to help your business understand how a website can help it. To do that, we begin each project with a discovery phase that is aimed at getting to know your business, your industry and your customers so we can create a bespoke plan that guides your project from start to finish and beyond to ensure success.

Once we have a plan in place, I’ll design and develop your custom WordPress website.

All website packages include:

  • Website planning guidance (I help you plan and structure your website).
  • Strategic consulting.
  • WordPress design and development, including a design concept showing the homepage design.
  • Google Analytics set up, performance optimisation and search engine optimisation.
  • Website launch strategy.
  • Training showing you how to manage + update your own website.

Services that you can add to the website design package include copywriting, sales funnel creation and brand identity design.

I’ll help your product-based business create a beautiful, conversion-focused eCommerce website on the Shopify platform. All website packages include:

  • Shopify planning guidance (I help you plan and structure your eCommerce website).
  • Strategic eCommerce consulting that includes help with choosing payment gateways, shipping rate strategy and conversion-optimisation features.
  • Shopify store design, including a design concept showing the homepage design.
  • Loading of your products and creation of pages.

After launch, I’ll help you take care of and grow your new website.

”I highly recommend working with Meg! First off, I was two-weeks away from launching when my original web designer had to cancel all her projects. After interviewing three other candidates, I knew I wanted to work with Meg – she has a lovely demeanour and energy.Thank you Meg for a gorgeous website.”
