Nut,meg Studio

Hi - I'm Meg Hodson

If you’re anything like me, you’re inspired and excited about what you do. Something fierce drives you forward.

You know that a compelling website designed to convert will support your business’s growth.

But you’re not tech-savvy and you don’t have months and months (or years and years) to spend DIY-ing. And your standards are high; a budget, inconsiderate website design just won’t do for your brand this time around.

My nurturing service supports you on your website creation journey.

Our goal is simple: make it easy and appealing for your website visitors to take action, whether that’s a new sale, subscriber, or both.

After working with Nutmeg, you’ll be the happy owner of a beautiful new website, designed to convert and grow your business through the stormy and calm seasons.

The Story

I’ve been working in eCommerce since 2010, for large nationwide brands and smaller local ones, in South Africa
and internationally.

I built my first Shopify website in 2015, for a sports shop selling MTB and road bikes. I got them to the first page of Google as a result of SEO (competing against the big established retailers).

This led to significant growth in organic sales. Back then we did no paid ads – all online sales came from organic search. I was hooked on eCommerce from this moment.

I left my marketing agency job in 2016 to have a baby and in 2018 started Nutmeg Studio. From rocky and imperfect beginnings (often with a tiny girl sleeping in my lap while I worked on my laptop), I’ve since grown the studio into a supportive and thriving digital space dedicated to helping small businesses around the world flourish online.


"After 24-years in business and numerous websites finally we have a website that is really working for us, reflects our business and we are proud of it. Megan took the time to really understand the business’ vision and values and has captured this perfectly. "

The website was launched in mid-May 2020. Despite our industry (international tourism) being one of the hardest hit by COVID-19, within a month of launching the website we had our first sale. Seamless integration between the website, social media platforms, as well as backend automation, has resulted in vastly increased engagement with our target market resulting in quality sales leads as well as value adds to our existing clients. The feedback from our current and new clients as well as business partners has been fantastic. Since the launch of the site, Megan’s commitment to ongoing support and introducing new innovative ideas has not stopped. It really does feel like Megan is part of our team.”
