Deleyna's Dynamic Designs focuses on websites for writers.
(However, we have done custom websites for other industries and even for weddings.)
Our goal is to create custom websites that are easy for the owner to update and feel comfortable using.
Need a website? Feel free to contact me. I'm happy to answer questions.
I teach classes on website design for writers at Lawson Writer's Academy. Sign up for my newsletter to be notified when the next class will be.
I also teach classes in internet marketing, indie publishing, and social media for authors.
Want me to teach a specialized class for your group? Contact me and we'll chat!
I'm a big believer in building websites that authors can maintain and update on their own.
Over the years, customers have asked me to offer support packages. Generally these are busy authors with no time to update their websites. Having me available to help with minor tasks helps them stay focused on their writing.
Some folks use these packages for one-on-one coaching and help with specific issues as the web grows and changes. I love helping authors focus their career and marketing goals! The monthly check-ins help hold them accountable without creating undo stress.
I've been told that having a support subscription with me is like having an insurance policy for a website. If anything goes wrong, I'm there to help.
These can be some of the most challenging adventures. Sometimes authors hire expensive web developers to design very specialized websites. Over time, these websites break down, developers decide to go fishing off the coast of South America, and authors are left with websites they can't update.
I'm available to help untangle the mess and bring the site into a more updated, easy to maintain format.
But what if the website is gone? Sometimes you can find bits of it on the Internet Archive. I've been known to pull pieces out of oblivion. There's never a guarantee with this, but it is rewarding when we can pull it off!
Feel free to contact me if you have questions.
Deleyna started a business helping independent sales professionals with marketing materials back in 1997 in order to support her writing.
In 2008, she shifted the business focus to helping other authors develop their web presence and Deleyna's Dynamic Designs was born.
The concept of Dynamic Design comes from the unique needs of designing for the web, a platform that is constantly changing and viewed on devices ranging from tiny phones to big screen TVs.
Over the years, I wrestled with my website and never got it to look or perform well. So, I chugged along with an ugly, clunky thing of a website that never made much of a splash in Google rankings or anywhere else. But at least it was there, right? (I'd say to myself). Then I met Deleyna. Six weeks later, I'm proud to say I'm super satisfied with my website. In fact, I love it! First time I've ever said that. My bright and shiny new website is solid and robust and pretty and I can barely believe it. Best of all, I got to know Deleyna. She's patient and clear and so knowledgeable. She communicates without barriers. A true gem of a teacher and person! I couldn't have achieved building my new website without her.
Thank you, Deleyna, for being the website partner I need. Your care and feeding of e-impaired authors is a godsend. You make it all possible!
Lisa helped me create a website from nothing. I brought no knowledge to the table, but plenty of dread. Working with technology is scary business for me, but Lisa's knowledge, support, and encouragement made it happen. I'm still in the beginning stages of exploring the possibilities of my website but am thrilled to have one after hoping to have one for years. She's a patient and knowledgeable instructor who will listen to what you want and help you design it. Her instruction is targeted and personalized to your needs. I'd encourage anyone who wants a quality website to work with her.
I've had many website experts/helpers over my freelancing career. None have engaged with me and supported me the way Lisa has. Whereas others did website essentials *for me*, Lisa empowers me to do for myself and understand the why behind each decision to ensure my business runs at peak optimization. Her knowledge knows no bounds. She's like the Great and Powerful Oz behind the scenes, but with a stellar client rapport and a huge heart. I send absolutely everyone who needs a website to her, regardless of their industry. Everyone needs a Lisa on their team!
I've known Lisa for more than 20 years and have worked with her both as a writer and web designer. She's very knowledgeable and if she doesn't know the answers, will hunt them down for you. She explains things in a way that even those without computer savvy can understand, and is always looking out for what's best for you, the client. Some people are in it just for the money, Lisa wants to make your site the best it can be.
