Podcast Editing

With years of podcasting experience, including editing, I’ll take your recording, add in your intro, outro, and midroll, as well as editing from beginning to end, so you and your guest sound your very best!

I’ve edited multiple shows for the Mental Health News Radio Network podcasters, including my own weekly show, Beyond Your Past Podcast.

Don’t worry about those umms, uhhs, and random background noise! You just record your show and I’ll return it back to you with professional quality audio and affects.

Hourly rates available or a monthly package, Contact Me and let’s discuss your show and how I can help free up your time!

My Goal is for You to Absolutely Love Your Site!

 

Your online home should be something that you are proud of! I will do everything in my power to ensure that this experience is smooth and that you get exactly what you want.

I stand by my work, 100%, and won’t rest until your site is just the way you want it!

What about hosting, do you provide that?

No, hosting is separate from your website package with Teal Ribbon Designs. You’ll need to secure hosting through a company like Go Daddy. They offer very reasonable packages as low as a few dollars per month to start. This is charged monthly or annually to your credit card or PayPal account.

I can help you find suitable hosting if you like.

What if I just want a blog?

Every wordpress website has blog capabilities built right in. If you only want a blog and no other pages, you can still have a custom domain and professional theme, for example check out SurvivingMyPast.net – this is a blog only with a few other basic pages.

Contact me for a discounted plan to get your wordpress blog up and running with a custom theme.

There are also free blogs available through sites like Blogger and WordPress, which are a great place to start. Then as you grow and want more functionality and customization, I can help with an affordable package.

What platform do you build my website on?
I use WordPress for your website. It’s the most popular website and blog platform in the world, offering customizing options that are nearly as limitless as your imagination.

 

Do you make custom graphics

Indeed, I do have experience with photoshop and canva, and can make beautiful, custom graphics that are on brand and reflect your website!

If this is something you’d like as part of your package, let me know during your free design call.

 

Who writes the copy for my site.

That’s your department 🙂 – I will build you the website you’ve always wanted, and you supply what you want in it.

For example, your “about me” page typically includes some of your life story, experience, and other general information about you that you want to share.

I can take care of stock photos and custom graphics if you like, and/or we can use photos and images that you have as long as you own the rights to them or have permission to use them. 

I will then format all of your content on the appropriate page(s) with the fonts and colors of your choice so it all flows seamlessly.

Domains, how do I get one?
If you don’t already have an existing domain, you’ll purchase one through a registrar like Go Daddy. This is what visitors will type into their browser to visit your website (the part just before the “.com”, “.net” etc.

I can show you how to purchase a domain, they are typically around $10 per year. This is a separate charge outside of your Teal Ribbon Website plan.

Do you offer payment plans

Yep, sure do! If you like, you can split up your package fee into installments using PayPal. Just let me know during your free design call and we’ll discuss the options available.

 

What are themes, how do I get one?

A theme is design foundation for your website on wordpress, and can be customized with your color scheme, font, images, and more.

I recommend themeforest.net , they have literally thousands of available wordpress themes for you to choose from.

I’m happy to help you pick one out based on your free design call, where we’ll discuss your ideas on how you’d like your site to look.

Themes are a one time additional charge, not included in your package. They run between $15-$65 on average, depending on the style, developer, options available, etc.

Do you create other types of websites?

Yep, although my main focus is creating websites for mental health advocates, survivors, and helping professionals, I do also work on other types of websites and blogs from time to time. 

It’s nice to mix things up with a little variety now and then…helps keep the creativity fresh 🙂

 

Can you re-purpose my existing content?
Absolutely! If you have a current website and you’re looking to give a fresh, new look. I’ll reuse the page content and images that you already have so you don’t lose any of your valuable content that you worked so hard to write and create.

With a little website creating magic I’ll take what you have now and turn it into something brand new and even more amazing.

More About TRC…

Well, let’s see… Teal Ribbon Creations is the creative brainchild of Matt Pappas (that’s me).

I’m a Certified Coach, Neuro Linguistic Programming Master Practitioner, Podcaster, and Advocate. In my spare time I enjoy creating websites (for over 10 years now) and utilizing the creativity that has served me so well in life. 

Teal Ribbon Creations was founded not only out of a desire to build websites for others, but to specifically help a niche that I’m involved in and passionate about; mental health professionals, bloggers, and advocates.

We spend so much of our time helping others, continuing our own healing, and doing what we are passionate about, which doesn’t always leave time to keep our web presence up to date, or start one in the first place. That’s where I come in!

As someone who gets where you’re coming from, I’ll work with you to bring to life a site that is uniquely You and Your Brand.

Let’s Do This!
