Boost sales of your bee products and services

You know you need to do something about your website, but you’re not sure what. Perhaps you had the site designed and built by someone else, or maybe you built it yourself using some kind of web page builder. Either way, the problem is that it’s not bringing in a steadily growing stream of customers.

It may be out-of-date, or it may no longer represent you and your company. You’d love to grow your business by selling more honey and other bee products on the web (perhaps also hive rentals or host-a-hive services, beekeeping supplies, and educational courses or talks).

You have so many choices to try to solve this problem. In fact, there are too many choices. So many companies, services, and articles promise this and that. It’s hard to know what to do, who to trust, or how to choose what will work best for your unique bee business.
 And you have better things to be doing with your time, doing what you do best with your bees! 🐝🐝

You could hire a new web person to sort through these choices for you. But will they move the needle on your bottom line? Or will they be yet another expense that leaves you where you’re at now, doing most of your sales offline, perhaps even relying on other sources of income unrelated to bees?

It’s so easy to do little (or even nothing at all) when you’re overwhelmed by choices. Hiring another web person feels risky, especially if previous web folks never delivered real business value for you. With each month that passes, you feel more and more frustrated with your website, without knowing how best to move forward.

Know precisely how to change your website to bring in more business

Imagine knowing exactly what to do about your website. Imagine knowing just the right steps to take next, and just the right tools to use, in order to grow your bee business online. Imagine taking the first steps toward a more engaging, more profitable web presence, and having a plan in place to build on these steps over time. Imagine your website getting more traffic and more sales. A buzzy thought! 🐝

Actionable, expert advice for generating more profits online

Often all it takes to move forward is talking to the right person at the right time. Imagine having a trusted advisor look at your website, talk to you about your goals, and come up with a roadmap of straightforward steps to get there. Steps specially tailored to your unique situation.

Transforming your website into your most profitable sales and outreach channel is something I can show you how to do. Your web business could be buzzing! 🐝

Here’s how it works:

  • Book a one hour discovery session with me.
  • Before we chat, I’ll send you a short questionnaire.
  • I’ll review your website and questionnaire a few days before we have our call.
  • I’ll be prepared with a number of ideas and specific changes to make to your website.
  • We’ll walk through these suggestions together, discussing each in terms of the impact it will have on your business.
  • After our call, you’ll receive a write-up of all the suggestions and next steps (along with supplementary information about any tools we may have discussed on our call).
  • You’ll also receive a downloadable recording of our call for you to reference at any time.

Ready to get started? The price is $495. If you’re not buzzing with excitement over the possibilities for your website by the end of our call, I’ll refund your money in full.


Have questions?

How do I know if this will help me?

You’ll get the most value out of this if your current website isn’t getting as much traffic as you’d like, and you’re not selling as many bee products and services as you’d wish. We’ll look at strategies to apply right now to your website to increase visitors to your site, boost their interest in your brand (and their desire to spread the word about you), and in some cases, repackage your products and services in order to increase your sales.

What will I get out of this?

You’ll come away with a roadmap showing precisely how to get from where you are now to where you want to be, tailored individually to your website and the business goals we discuss on our call. You’ll have specific actions that you can start working on immediately in order to bring in more website traffic, convert more folks into first-time and return customers, and build a strong brand that attracts people.

When will I see results?

I’ll be giving you suggestions that provide a mix of short-term and long-term gains. It’s up to you to act on these; some you’ll be able to do yourself, and others may require hiring someone in order to make changes. You may see some results within a few weeks, and others may take a number of months. I’ll prioritize everything for you, so you’ll know where to start to get the most results in the shortest time.

Can I hire you to do all the technical stuff?

Yes, absolutely! I’d bee thrilled to take care of everything for you :) If we both feel we’d benefit from working together, I can draw up a few possible plans for moving forward. But there’s no lock-in to the advice I give you, so you can take my suggestions and recommendations to anyone else you choose. Or you can use them as a template and work on them yourself (I’m writing a series of articles to help beekeepers with their businesses and websites, especially useful to DIY-ers).

What if I’m not satisfied?

I don’t want your money if you’re not happy! Time and again, folks have been amazed by the sense of clarity they have about their websites after we chat. If after we’re done you’re not buzzing with excitement over the impact of the changes we’ve discussed, I’ll refund your money in full (just so you know… I’ve never yet been asked to do so)!


Websites with a buzz!

I believe strongly in creating beautiful websites and unique, striking brands. Exploring the web these days is so often either a generally bland and boring experience, or involves such a great deal of time and annoyance as to be downright infuriating! So many websites look so similar to each other, and are so often slow, glitchy, and unmemorable. I create brands and websites that stand out and attract fans who want to share them with the world!

For almost two decades, I’ve helped turn business ideas into successful ventures. I’ve built brands that attract tens of millions of dollars in funding. This year, I’ve decided to bring my knowledge—how to build and market a successful online business—to the world that I’m most passionate about: bees and bee people!

For each project, I work directly with you, bringing 18 years of web development and marketing experience to focus on your project. I work from my home office in the woods of southern Oregon. When you call or email, I’ll be the one you speak with each time. The only background buzzes you’ll hear are from my backyard bees. 🐝🐝


Who am I?

I’m Elise, a bee lover first and foremost. 🐝 Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a fascination for bees and taking close-up photos of them. As I started bringing my bee photos to local events, I realized I was helping people look at bees in a whole new light. So in 2010, I started savebees.org (super-small at first)! I’ve been learning more and sharing ever since then.

Here are some of the things people say after a visit to Save Bees:

“Super informative and interesting.” — Zach P., Bee Biologist

“Thanks for sharing. I will never look at bees the same way.” — Susan C.

“I consider savebees.org as the go-to site for bee lovers.” — Anthony E.

Bee portrait photographer

Thoughtful Honey BeeI take photos of bees… lots of photos! See some of my favorites at bee.photos. I also have photos published in the Xerces Society’s book Attracting Native Pollinators. Other photos of mine have been used in various pollinator talks and exhibits over the years, including by USDA NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service).

Giving back 💛 to the bees

5% of all my project revenue goes to independent bee researchers. Many bee researchers work without adequate funding, and the more we learn about our bees, the better we can help them!

Make a beeline to more online business!

I’d love to help you and your bees! 🐝🐝 Together we’ll look at your website and figure out what’s working and what’s not. Learn exactly what to do next: what to focus on, what to change, and what tools to use.

I only do a limited number of these web inspections each month, so make sure to buzz my way soon!
