If you identify with being a web designer, brand designer or VA and want to formalize your web design offering(s), pricing and process, PWD was made for you :)


How PWD helps your business…

It’s here to help you become more stable in your business and experience the quality of life you’re working so hard right now to achieve :)

You do this through focused, simple systems that support your business.

To create these systems, you need a framework that ties templates and tools into a streamlined process for both YOU and your client.

PWD gives you ALL of these templates (there are over 50 in the Business Template Toolkit) along with tech guides and step-by-steps to set up your business systems using free and inexpensive tools that help you run your business more efficiently!

This course was designed to help you survive and thrive as a business owner!

 “I was brand new to web design when I started PWD and often felt like my clients were directing our work instead of me. I've gone from not charging enough and working every morning, noon and night on stuff that wasn't generating income to having a streamlined system for my leads, projects and getting referrals, so I'm spending less time on the admin portion of my business. The step-by-step framework is what really propelled me forward. It's all the things that I knew I needed to build into my business, but had no effing clue how to do.”

- Amanda S.

“I joined Powerhouse Web Designer to get help with all the processes of my web design business. I needed someone to just guide me step by step so I didn’t have to keep struggling. I already had processes in place before starting, but I knew they could be better. I also had lots of templates, but after taking this course I ended up replacing a lot of them or refining them with yours to make them even better. This course gave me the confidence to raise my prices with having a more streamlined process and I was able to recoup the cost immediately. It delivered everything it promised and more and I can’t recommend Powerhouse Web Designer enough!”

- Jodi N.

“Not only is your teaching style calm and detail-oriented, but you’ve got everything covered and I can tell you really want to see other designers thriving and succeeding in their businesses. You really understand what roadblocks to anticipate with clients and your guidance, templates and swipe copy have been absolute game changers!”

Hey you!

I’m Melanie and I help website designers organize their business systems to grow their confidence and increase their profits.

But lemme tell you....a few years ago my business totally stressed me out. I wasn't able to confidently convert leads into customers and had no clue how to offer a VIP experience that kept clients coming back for more. The structure of my systems and processes just weren’t working for me. So I decided to do something about it and take complete control of my business. 

I ditched everything that was holding me back and took steps to automate any task that unnecessarily ate up my time. I used my new systems and workflows to position myself as a high-end, premium designer, and now I have tech, tools and templates for EVERYTHING in my business. I’m regularly booked out with a calendar full of amazing clients and projects and my web design business is running on auto-pilot. 

I’ve put all of this into Powerhouse Web Designer, one complete resource full of the exact templates, processes, systems and tech I use to run my successful and growing design studio, My Billie Designs.

I can’t wait to show you how to take control of your business, too.

 “I'm still floored by how much my workflow has improved even with just implementing bits and pieces of PWD and bouncing around the course for the systems I most needed at the time. Invoicing especially has been SO much easier. I currently have over $8,000 in outstanding invoices for existing projects and clients have stayed on track without me feeling like a pest. My least favorite part of being a freelance designer has always been invoicing and now it's not something I dread.“

- Shawn G.

testimonial circle_Sara.png

“My project and website client process were pretty much non-existent and I was so lost in that regard. It blows my mind how open you are with your systems and processes - there are no secrets. It’s like watching over your shoulder as you guide your web design clients from inquiry to project wrap up. Now I feel so confident in delivering a kick ass experience for my clients!”

- Sara G.

“Wow! I just finished the Packages, Pricing + Process sheets and girrrrrrrl! Clarity feels so good! The 4-step process was a lot of work but really highlighted areas where I'm undercharging. I'm excited to have this package and add-on structure and I feel it'll be a game-changer in my business.”

- Fabiana N.

+ Can I sign up any time?

Powerhouse Web Designer is only available through special invitations with no open enrollment to the public! It's because I wanna make sure you're READY and that this course will actually help you achieve your big goals. I don't invite just anyone to enroll!

+ How do I know I'm a good fit for Powerhouse Web Designer?

You might not be! So let's talk about it.

If you're saying yes to gaining your confidence by getting clear on your value and using that to fuel your services and business systems, then yes sign up.

If you’re saying yes to an automated lead funnel, an organized project process and more white space and creativity in your day to day, then sign up!

This course is also really good for action takers. People who are smart and willing to do the work (they’re just wearing thin on both ends and really need to protect their time and energy and for things to start feeling easier in their business). I love my action takers who are like, hell yes give me the template I’m implementing this asap!

If you’re a new web designer and need help learning how to design a website, this course isn’t for you but I can recommend some to you if you DM me on Instagram! This course is all about helping you set up your business systems to save time so you know what to focus on when you're at work and can get back to living your life before and after.

+ What point of business should I be in before registering?

This course is for new and seasoned freelancers alike. New freelancers can get the guidance they need at the start of their entrepreneurial journey (and avoid some of the big mistakes I’ve made!), but freelance vets can also learn how to introduce efficiency and automation into their workflows, stabilize their income through recurring revenue and referrals, and add new skills to their services (like website strategy and copywriting) to increase their value and charge higher prices. This is an awesome course if you want to prep your business systems before scaling or growing a team.

If you're new to freelance web design, just know that this course isn't intended to teach you how to design a website. If you feel like it's important to nail that down before working on your business systems and client process, use the form below to say hi. I'm super happy to point you towards other courses that will help you focus on the design process first :)

+ Is the content dripped?

It’s all there for you to binge on immediately. I’ve had students who bounce around to what they need most, which is totally fine. But everything’s listed as “week 1”, “week 2”, etc because it CAN be really helpful to work through it methodically. But even that, you don’t have to wait a week. My student Amanda had a completely different business top-to-bottom (i.e., bringing in high quality clients at an increased price point) 2 weeks after she enrolled. So its all there however you wanna consume it!

+ How long does it take to complete the course?

The course material takes about 6-8 hours to work through (there are 5.5 hours of video with supplemental text lessons). The time it takes to implement can vary, but there are templates, step-by-step instructions and guides to help you each step of the way.

You’ll be able to sift through the modules, templates, swipe files and guides to focus on whatever you need first, whether that’s setting up automation and templates or streamlining your client and project processes.

You'll get immediate access to content that covers everything from business mindset, adding strategy to your design process, time-saving automation, delivering a VIP client experience that creates referrals and recurring revenue, my crazy simple copywriting "hack" that puts an end to late client homework and so much more.

You’ll also have lifetime access to all course content including templates, bonus lessons and ALL FUTURE UPDATES!

We all face different levels of busyness, and there is NO RUSH or right/wrong amount of time to complete the course.

+ Is the course open to designers outside of the US?

Yep! As long as you have internet access you'll be able to log into the course portal and access all material. However, everything is created in English.

+ What's the refund policy?

Powerhouse Web Designer is a digital product which means it isn't possible to return the product; therefore, there are no refunds. If you have ANY questions be sure to reach out at or use the contact form below so I can help you determine if PWD is a good fit for your needs!

+ Are there other material or equipment costs besides my registration fee?

Great question! I’m a scrappy, low-tech kinda lady so the tools I use in my business tend to be simple and low-cost. With saying that, there’s one tool I talk about inside of the course that will eventually cost you money if you decide to use it (Dubsado). This is a client management tool that builds efficiency into my day-to-day and helps me deliver all important paperwork like presentations, intake questionnaires, contracts, invoices and proposals.

The time it saves me is worth 10-20 times the annual cost! During the course you’ll be able to implement and test the systems I teach then decide if its a good fit for your needs or not. If you decide to use it permanently I have a discount code you can use, or I can point you to alternatives if it isn’t a good fit.

+ What level of one-on-one and community support does this course offer?

This is completely self-paced course that you’re working through on your own, but there IS a chance to snag a one-on-one call with me after you work through all the material so we can talk about your experience and chat about anything related to your business!

+ Do I get lifetime access to the course material?

Yes, along with all future updates! 🏆
