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 questionnaire we’ll go through with you at that time. We’ll also provide you with 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 come up with a price. We’ll then send you a proposal for your website investment. 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’ll ensure that we keep a simple, yet clear list of what we need from 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 is in a workable draft form, we’ll send you a sneak peek so you can see how it’s looking so you can send us what you love, and what you’d like to see changed.
We’ll publish the site!
Once complete, we’ll publish the site, let you know that it’s live, and then we’ll have a little dance party.
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.
and we’ll chat about a maintenance plan.
If you’d prefer us to take care of the maintenance, we highly recommend it, and are happy to provide it. 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, this part of our journey will be complete.
But hopefully not forever. Hopefully you’ll have chosen to have us maintain your site so we can continue the journey. If this is to be the end of our journey for now, we will have created a website you and your customer-base loves, and we’ll look forward to providing you with any assistance you may need into the future.
