Want to know what to expect when you're getting a new or updated web site? Let me make the process simple and straight forward for you with a sample design process.
On the first meeting, I find out what you are looking for in a web site. We can talk about your budget and time constraints, target audience, what type of features you would like, and other similar topics.
After the first meeting many clients prefer to correspond through email and over the phone. The second meeting begins to soidify the design of the site. I bring, or send you,
a wireframe, or rough outline of what
your site will look like and how the pages will work together, and
we will talk about what you like and don't like. At this point I'll
also have an agreement so that we both have clear expectations about
what kind of web site you're getting. The agreement will include number
of pages, features of your site (examples include a map, animated
graphics or pop-up coupon), and number of pictures and content details.
I also include hosting preferences, price and two dates: the date
I will get materials and information from you, and the date your site
will be completed and, upon your approval, up on the web. Once you
sign the agreement I get right to work.
Content is one of the most important parts of your website, but it is also one of the hardest things to get together. If you do not have the time or resources to gather all of the pictures and text that you want on your site, I can help. Can't think of a good way to describe your business? Don't have time to take good pictures? For an hourly Content Included rate, I can provide the content you need and save you time and effort.
Some sites only require the first two meetings and a final approval, and some are more complex and require more effort. I won't charge extra for trips to pick up information from you or resonable extra meetings to discuss changes or ideas.
When your site is finished and meets with your approval, I will get it up on the internet according to your specifications and accept payment.
Sound simple? It is! Make the decision today to improve your business with a professional and affordable web site!
