Site Analysis + Quote
The first step is to settle on a plan for your website. Is this a small business site, or just an individual web presence? We discover if you're looking for a redesign or a totally brand new site, the number and type of pages you'll need, an idea of how you'd like it to look, and if you want any additional features, custom programming, or the ability to update your site yourself. We are happy to walk you through this and give you a quote for exactly what you need.
First Half of Payment
Once we know exactly what you'll need, and agree to a price, the first half of the payment will be due. After this payment is received, work can begin.
Gather Text, Content, Materials
Your project is ready to execute. We will need any text, images, logos, or other content you want included on your site sent to us in a timely manner.
Mockup + Approval
Using all the information you provide to us, the initial design will be created and provided for your approval. Feel free to make any changes to the design you wish. (Please be responsible and prompt with changes; upcharges may apply here.) Once approved, work on the final site can begin, and is slated to launch in at least one month *.
This is the stage where all the code, graphics, and images come together to create the final site. From the initial design we will develop your entire site using the very latest design standards to run fast, work in all current browsers, and be search engine friendly. We'll create all your pages, link them together, and test out all the features and site functionality against our quality standards.
Your website is now finished. You will be provided a working version of your website to test out for yourself. We encourage you to go through the entire site, and if there is anything else you want to change simply email us with the changes.
Your project is now completed. Once we've made any final changes, you can submit the final payment. We also ask that you provide us permission to use your site in our portfolio, and if you're especially happy with the work we did, a testimonial or quote of recommendation!
Site Goes Live
We'll upload your entire site to the web (and send you a ZIP copy), and you're ready to go! You'll get free on-call maintenance for the first 30 days after launch to make sure everything works and runs smoothly. You'll also get a one-hour, one-on-one training session on how to use advanced features of your site, and detailed notes with usernames, passwords, links to relevant information about functionality implementation, design notes (font names, themes, etc), as well as instructions for maintaining your site.
* "Live In A Month" Turnaround Time
Typically each website project takes no more than 30 days from design approval to launch. However, it is important to note that this is NOT guaranteed. Turnaround times are based on statistics from our previous projects and what a typical simple-to-medium sized website would consist of. Much of the time in a project is dependent on a client's ability to provide content and approve mockups in a timely manner and make reasonable requests for revisions. Some sites could take as little as two weeks to launch. Your launch date will be estimated or set once you approve the initial design mockup.
