Our Web Design Process
To start our website creation journey with you, we’ll want to sit down and meet with you to brainstorm what ideas you have for your site, what you’d like to see on your site, how you’d like it to look, color schemes, your budget, etc.. We’ll have a worksheet we’ll go through with you at that time. We’ll also chat about and provide you some tips on how to help your search engine optimization. Generally, we’ll get to know you, and you’ll get to know us.
Decide on a price
We’ll head back to our office (AKA, our living room), and chat about your needs, and we’ll come up with a price on our end. We’ll then contact you to see if that price is agreeable. If all is agreed upon by both parties, we’ll have you pay 20% to get started, with the remainder due upon completion of the site.
We’ll get to work!
Using WordPress and the Divi Builder theme, we’ll start working on creating the site we have in mind, and any questions/content/needs we have for you, we’ll make lists of and send to you. Clear communication is our number two priority (excellent customer service and satisfaction is our number one priority).
We’ll keep you updated along the journey
Throughout the process, we’ll keep you updated on how the site is going. Once we’re at a point where the site looks generally what it’ll look like near the end (sometimes content isn’t on it at that point yet), we’ll send you a sneak peek so you can see how it’s looking. At that point, feel free to let us know what you love, and what you’d like to see changed.
We’ll publish the site!
Once complete, we’ll publish the site and have a little dance party (most likely in our office, and most likely to some (what band here?)). We’ll of course let you know that it is live, as well!
If you’re interested, we’ll train you on how to use the back-end of your site.
If you’re the type who wants to be hands-on with your site once it’s been created, we’ll train you on how to do just that. We’ll show you how to edit pages, how to update plugins, how to add blogs and new pages, etc. We have found that Divi is not only a really user-friendly back-end program to use, but they also make a lot of very useful updates to their program frequently, meaning you’ll have more tools at your fingertips all the time if you’d like to use them.
Or, we’ll chat about a maintenance plan.
If you’d prefer us to take care of the maintenance, we’re happy to provide that service to you! If down the road, you find that you need to make a small edit to a page, or a plugin is no longer working properly (unfortunately, this happens from time to time), or you want to add new content to your site, we’ll either come up with a maintenance plan for you, or we can decide on an hourly rate. It’ll all depend on the needs of your site, specifically. We’ll help you figure out what’s best for you and your needs.
And finally, our journey will be complete.
Unless choosing to have a maintenance plan with us, our website creation journey will come to an end. By this time, we’ll hope we provided you with the website of your dreams, a product both you and your customer-base will love, and we’ll look forward to providing you with any assistance you may need into the future. It’ll be a bittersweet time, to say the least!
