Do you know what websites and magic have in common?

At first glance, they both seem like super complex & mysterious things that require a lot of knowledge and experience to understand.

But once you get to know the tricks behind the scenes, you'll realize that they're actually pretty simple and straightforward.

Hi there, I'm Jannis 👋

I'm a web designer and developer and for the last 10 years I've been building websites for clients from all over the world.

In early 2022 I started being active on Twitter and have met a lot of amazing people there, many of whom I now call my friends.

Actively building close relationships and friendships with solopreneurs and small business owners has shown me that what's obvious to me as a web designer and developer is not always obvious to them.

And that's why I've created this website: the Magic Website Lab. A place where I can share my knowledge and experience with you and help you create a website that you can be proud of ✨

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a website for my business?

In short: Yes.

Of course, as a solopreneur or content creator you can always start without a website. But as soon as you want to grow your business, you need one.

A website is the foundation of your business. It’s the place where you can share your story, your products, and your services.

And most importantly: it's one of the channels YOU own. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter etc. can all shut down tomorrow. But your website will always be there.

Do I need to pay thousands of dollars for a website?

Absolutely not. You can build a website yourself for less than $100.

As everything in business, you need to look at the return on your investment. If you’re just starting out, there is no point in spending thousands of dollars on a website.
