Live By 5 is a service designed to get you a WordPress website up fast, the right way.

This means we take care of the hard stuff, the research, the tech and guide you through the decision making process, providing you with a streamlined pathway to a website you love in a fraction of the time it would take if you commissioned a developer or DIY'ed it from scratch.

    Not every business will fit our model, and that's ok!

    Our application process helps us identify if you are a good match for our service. We'll happily refer you on to a trusted colleague if we don't think we are 'the one'.

    Pick a date

    Once your application is accepted, we'll send you a link to our calendar.

    And to ensure no unpleasant surprises, you'll receive an invoice and a contract so you're clear on exactly what you're signing up for and how much it's going to cost.

    Online preparation guide

    We reckon we know a thing or 2 about pulling together a website in 1 day - but it takes preparation and planning. We'll send you a link to our online preparation guide.

    It comes with clear instructions so you can hunt and gather the bits and bobs we need to be ready to hit the ground running on the day.

    Design & content consultation

    Once we have your preparation material together, it's time to pick the design base for your site. Our expert team members will consult with you to chose a design that meets your branding and business needs. 

    We'll then brief our team in to customise it so it matches your brand (fonts, colours, logo). We'll discuss images and content and come up with a game plan for the creation day.

    Creation day

    We work together side by side to build a website you love. We'll show you how the software works, we guide you through a number of decisions about layout and content, and all the time you are learning exactly how to grow and continue working on your site after we're finished.

    Follow up consultation

    We touch base and see how you're going, and give you some advice on your next steps as a responsible website owner.

Who is it for?

Live by 5 is born from the need to offer micro business, freelancers, consultants and bloggers a professional website within a reasonable budget and time frame. We work together to build new websites for soloists and microbusinesses who don't have the time or skill set to completely DIY, but don't have the budget to afford an agency to develop it for them.

If you're willing to do your prep and learn on the day, then we think you're going to love the Live By 5 website in a day experience.

We've got a bunch of tools and designs that are perfect for the following kinds of setups - but feel free to apply if you think we can help you too.
