We meet (either in person or on the phone) and come up with a good game plan based on your specific needs. There are no templates or magic formulas here. We fit the project to you.
- WORK AGREEMENT
We put everything in writing. Once you’re happy with the work agreement, sign it and we put the ball in motion. I do require a 50% deposit to begin production.
- DOMAIN NAME AND HOSTING
If you don’t have a “domain name” I’ll help you secure one. This is the address that visitors will type in to find you. I also set up hosting if you don’t already have it, so that I can build the site on the right foundation.
- DESIGN MOCKUPS
I start the design process by drawing rough draft “mockups”. These are just design concepts to get a feel for the design direction – the look and texture – of the site. This process will require several proofing passes with you.
- ENGINEERING (BUILDING THE SITE)
“Engineering” is the process that brings a site to life. It’s when I take the design and make it an actual website.
- SITE TESTING
Once engineering is complete, I start testing the site. I’ll let you play with it, kick the tires and approve the overall functionality of the project.
- LAUNCH OF SITE
The most exciting step, as the website is launched. I promote and submit the site to search engines, make it live on the Internet and off you go.
- MAINTENANCE AND UPDATES
Like any good working machine, websites need maintenance. If you have an editing platform package installed then have at it. If you signed up for a maintenance plan, then I enter into that phase, where I’ll update your website with necessary content as needed.
