Step 1. Initial Client Meeting
We talk with you in person or via a phone conference to understand what your looking for. We give you our thoughts and suggestions, ultimately which way you decide to go is up to you.
Step 2. Create a Proposal
Based on what we talked about in our meeting, we put together a written proposal for you. We itemize all of the costs so you have control over everything. You can choose which items you want to do right away and which you want to hold off on. We always ask for 50% upfront to begin work.
Step 3. Initial Sketch
You wouldn’t start building a house without first creating a blueprint, and that’s exactly what the initial sketch is. It’s a quick drawing of how all the various elements will lay out on your website. Before we ever open up WordPress to create your layout, we first work with you on the wireframe to determine what will be on the page and where it is.
Step 4. Mock-ups
Once you’ve approved an Initial sketch layout, we then open up WordPress and show you the design layouts for your website. This is truthfully one of the most important steps of the entire process. We are very aware that we’re not just creating a website, we’re building a brand.
Step 5. The Website Build
After you’ve approved the initial design, we begin actually building the website. This part can go fairly quickly depending on what type of feature you may have on your website. Typically we rely on you to provide us with any text or content for your website. If you don’t like to write or aren’t sure what to say, then for an additional fee we can have one of our professional copywriters create this content for you.
Step 6. Launch Website
Once we’ve created the initial working draft of the website, we give you a chance to take a look and send us your revisions and changes. Once your site is live we’re still here to help you out with anything that may come up. Many clients choose to have a content management system set up to allow them to make any future changes themselves.
